Sustain pedal won't work on Casio WK-1300?

Does anyone know if their is a way to RESET the keyboard or do something to it internally to get the sustain function to work again? THe sustain function is not working and I've determined that the pedals I've tried using work fine on other keyboars so the problem is in the keyboard itself.

I don't think there is a setting for this directly, but there is an optional sustain pedal you can plug into it.

SOURCE: Casio 1600 sustain pedal problem

Not if its like mine, its a completecircuit vs.incomplete circuit problems.

I had the exact same problem with my Casio keyboard and a Yamaha sustain pedal I bought.

I'm not an electrical genius, but I was able to get it to work by opening it up and doing a little modification. Of course I first just tried switching the white wire with the black one but that didn't change anything at all when I tried it. It turns out the Casio wants the circuit completed to sustain, and broken for no sustain, which is the opposite of what the Yamaha pedal does.

I opened it up and mine had three three flat metal strips let's call them Top, Middle and Bottom. The Middle and Bottom ones were joined together on the right side, and the Middle and Top ones were touching on the left side when the pedal was not pressed. These seperated when the pedal was pressed, thereby breaking the circuit because the wires were on the top plate and on the joined Middle/Bottom plate.

So to flip it I:
1. Unsoldered the Bottom wire
2. Cut apart the Bottom and Middle plates on the right.
3. Bent the Middle plate on the right to touch the Top plate instead and soldered those together.
4. Soldered the Bottom wire back on.

That's it! Once I figured it out, it took only a few minutes to fix.
Good luck!

SOURCE: sustain pedal doesn't work any

take it into a music store and try a pedal there in store. If it works, buy the new pedal and charge the guests. If it does not work, you know it's th TS input on the keyboard

Sustain pedal doesn't work any more - maybe it isn't the fault of the pedal? I don't want to order a new one if the problem is in the keyboard. I'm sorry, I just lent it to summer guests...

Casio Keyboard CTK700 The sound does not sustain when the key is pressed for 4 notes. How to rectify the same


sustain is typcially a product of the sound you have chosen, If you have a sustain pedal you can sustain any sound. you may also have some choices on the switches that allow special sustain, but I dont own a casio keyboard (I have yamaha) but they are nearly the same in operation. The easiest way to get controllable sustain is by plugging in a sustain pedal
