tell us more:
are the dead keys the same ones you changed?
are the dead keys the same notes?
are the dead keys in a row?
If you unplugged any connectors, check them again

does this synth use rubber 'dome' key contacts? If so, you may need to dis=assemble them and clean. Changing the broken keys may have knocked dirt particles loose causing some contacts to not work. Also, check to make sure the keys have not broken off any small parts that press on the contacts.
