MIDI keyboard key stuck at max velocity

Hello dear IDMf friends,

I've got myself a first gen M-Audio Axiom 61 and sadly one of the keys is stuck registering at max velocity every time it's played. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience repairing MIDI keyboards or has experienced a similar issue with theirs and perhaps knows how to go about fixing it. I guess I'm just looking for some adviceI. I don't have the money to buy a new one, and I definitely don't feel I need to get a new one considering the keyboard is still in excellent shape except for the issue of this one key. It's just becoming a pain having to edit my MIDI notes when I happen to hit that note, and also just when I play for listening pleasure or practice, that one note sticks out like a sore thumb!

Any advice is much appreciated.

Look for the "max velocity" switch/option and turn it off.

I'm sure that's what's going on.
