Fr4x weird right hand note positioning

Hi guys, here's the situation: yesterday night at the dinner table I was letting the kids play with the right hand's keyboard (it's a button c system fr4x). It was fun and all but they kept touching all the buttons and I don't know how it happened but when they all went to bed I wanted to practice with headphones and found that the note positioning was all messed up, my user program was completely changed... it's totally unplayable.
In the menu I can go to system but I can't find treblemode anywhere to set it to the c system; I looked elsewhere but can't find it, I might have missed it so if anyone has a fr4x that changes the left hand note positioning in a different way please tell🙏.
Other than that I tried doing a factory all reset but it doesn't seem to change anything...
Is there a way to do a full formatting of the instrument? Please help and a thousand thanks in advance

For TrebleMode see FR4X Ref manual "Menu Options" on page 44:
Press Menu button see Accedit
Use > to get System and choose it
Use > to get Treblemode and C griff and choose it.

Other users have found multiple simultaneous button pressing can give weird results including a change to Piano keyboard.
Solution: Be a less pleasant parent! Good luck!
Ref your post: "left hand note..." I guess 'left' was a mistake

First of all thanks for posting; In the menu I can find Accedit but inside I find musettetyp, musetval, valvetyp etc but not System nor Treblemode; I find System in the menu outside of Accedit but once I go inside I still can't find Treblemode. I can find B&C mode and FBs mode though... I have no clue what to do.
Should I send it to Roland? Otherwise isn't there a way to do a formatting? The factory all reset didn't work

I cannot help you here, but as a word of warning, NEVER let children play with "all the buttons" on any device.
At my old university we had a clone of the Apple II and one day a professor had brought his kid into work (age between 7 and 8 I guess) and let him play with all the buttons. That didn't last very long: there was a bang and a puff of smoke and a very bad smell. The kid had found the switch between 120 and 220 Volts... The electrolytic capacitors in the power supply exploded...

System is the right place to be.
This takes you to c griff or b griff
Does your screen say B - in that case the buttons are not assigned correctly, choose C, again from memory using '>'.
Manual Page 102 (from memory) shows all (6?) layout options. Do not choose Finnish C - it's different.
FB is for FreeBass and is for the left hand only.
A similar thing happened to another member whose instrument went from Button to Piano.
but I think that is in another part of the screens. Could you check this by the number of active keys? - not so many on a Piano version.
Maybe a phone call to your Roland supplier if you get nowhere?

Me again - update.
I have checked and the above works.
You will reach a screen that says Trblemode above C_GR.
If you have this, you have not solved the problem.
If you have something different then you will reach C_GR using the +/- buttons below the < >
Stating the obvious: Of course the problem may be elsewhere. You could use the button layout diagrams to check (page 102 I think) what you have
