There is a built-in power supply circuit inside the Keyboard which isn't working properly if you are only getting a faint squeaking noise.

A component on that board has failed - possibly a voltage regulator, a resistor or a capacitor.

A local electronics repair tech will be able to diagnose where the fault lies and replace the blown component, or you can take the keyboard to your nearest Korg dealer to have it fixed.
