Question about Casio Music
If you open up the case and look at the rear of the keys, I expect you will see that there is a small spring connected to the rear of each key. i suspect the unit was dropped in transit and some of these springs have popped off. If so, just reattach them using a pair of needle nose pliers. If however it was dropped hard enough to break the fingers that the springs attach to you'll have to replace those keys. This may be a repair shop job. it may also not be cost effective to do the job. Good Luck!

Check that the front of the keys is not hitting the lower plastic case front. If they hit it, then you need to disassemble the case partly and see what has shifted. It is ALSO possible that something has caaaused the aftertouch sensor to move out of position and it is hitting the keys early. ANY of these conditions needs to be addressed before damage is done.

When you are using midi the sounds from your keyboard aren't sent anywhere. What happens is control messages are sent over the midi cable from midi out to midi in on the other device which must have midi sounds on it (in your case the sound card) to make any sounds. The messages can be things like note on/of or pitch bend etc. If you want to send messages to produce a result on your laptop and still here something you can loop the messages by running from midi out on the device end ( your laptop) back to midi in on your keyboard. A much better explanation is available here:http://www.indiana.edu/~emusic/etext/MIDI/chapter3_MIDI.shtml I also signed up to this site (its free) that has great people and lots of info:http://www.recordingreview.com/ I recommend downloading Killer Home Recording setting up which at this time is also free and has the best advice you could want in it. I'd also recommend checking out Reaper which is comparable to Reason, Cubase or Protools. If this helps please let me know.

Check if the cble frm the pedal MIGHT be flexing or pulling on the keyboard case when you use it. Such movement COULD vibrate the power connector causing your problem.
Make sure you have the right power supply for the unit as one with too large a hole for the power pin would be intermittent like this.

The only way to analyze this is to open the case. You may find contaminating material has gotten in, or broken part, or key slightly out of position on pivots or pivot plastic broken.
When opening, be VERY careful of the tender ribbon cables. Have a large work surface that you can unfold the top onto. Be careful to use correct screw lengths and thread in each place you removed.

If I were to venture an educated guess I would vote for failing filter caps in the power supply.
The power is likely collapsing under load of the speakers but headphones take much less drive.
If this has an external wall-wart power supply, you might try a new one IF the output is found to be under the rated voltage.
Internal power supply components are beyond those individuals that are not adept at electronics.
