Thank you, I'll try to remove the key, because I want my Polaris to work perfect.
I'm not a collector, I like to play with these instruments.
I recently bought also a Sequential Multitrak in good conditions from Poland, broken sides and the last key during transport, I replaced the sides with two sides of wood, very beautyful. Also adjusted the broken key.
Tomorrow I'll post photos.
The multitrak sounds better than I expect, I thaught it have a sound similar to a Juno 60, bu ti is more powerful, expecially the filter...
Thanks
Edo

Try removing the key and cleaning and/or adjusting the grey contact.
To remove the keys push down on the back and pull forward.

If that doesn't fix it, its much more work, but you will need to
remove the keyboard assembly and check the screws and diodes.  If
that doesn't work, you can remove the keyboard PCB and grey membrane
contact and clean both the PCB and contact strip with carbon contact
cleaner.
