Keyboard outputting random midi notes


I'm using a 49SL mkII with Live. Recently, whenever I open live, the keyboard sends an endless barrage of notes - D, then F, then D# without stopping until I unplug the usb cable.

I've attached a picture of how it appears in MidiOx.

Thoughts? Is something on the midi circuit board screwed up? Or could it just be something with the physical keys?

Check your live midi preferences to make sure it's not setup as a control surface incorrectly and thus sending bum notes like that?
