Hello my name is***** look forward to assisting and am very sorry to hear that you are having this problem. I want to warn you that it is possible you will need to replace a part in order to fix this. There are a few different things that can cause this and a couple different parts so we would need to troubleshoot to find out for sure. What model Korg is it? Do any of the keys making any sound?

It is a Korg Concert Piano C-35. No keys work. It makes zero sounds.

Thank you, ***** ***** actually a common problem on that model. Over time some of the capacitors go bad and need to be replaced. I did not make this video, but the caps referred to in this video are what normally needs to be replaced to fix this:

Some screws may be covered by some square tabs that need to be removed to get into the boards. Any smaller electronics repair shop that does solder work should be able to do this. Larger shops will refuse to do this type of repair.
