Question about Casio Privia Px-130 Px130 88 Key Digital Stage Piano Nu

Open Question

How do you reverse the polarity on the foot pedal. I need it to work like a piano sustain, not a keyboard sustain.

I do not like the pedal sustain in the up position. I have tried to get the music store to tell me how to reverse the polarity, but no one seems to know. I have an older keyboard and would love to use it in performance mode, but this non-reversable drives me crazy. I know there has got to be a way.

SOURCE: is a sustain foot pedal similar to a tattoo machine pedal?

The sustain pedals have only two wires. Usually they terminate in a 1/4 inch mono plug.

yamaha USUALLY sustains when switch is closed. Roland usually sustains on a switch between the wires when the switch is open.

NO POWER should be supplied BY the sustain pedal... it is ONLY a switch.

SOURCE: How do you make the sustain pedal work correctly?

If you are not using the original pedal it means that your pedal is wired backwards. You can try disassembling the pedal or the plug on the cord and reversing the wiring of the connections to see if that helps. Example if the shield of the cable is wired to the shaft of the plug, try disconnecting the wiring to the shaft and tip and wire the shield to tip etc.

SOURCE: I've recently purchased a Roland

Sorry, but Roland uses the opposite sense switch. They use normally closed where Casio requires normally open contacts. SOMETIMES one can rewire the pedal internally, but you have to be mechanically and electrically inclined to do that.

SOURCE: I Have a Casio Privia

Yep... Roland pedals are reversed, that is, normally closed contacts. Unlike some Yamaha keyboards, the Casio doesn't have an inversion function available. You have two choices to solve this: 1. Buy a pedal with the corect sense 2. Open the Roland pedal and MAYBE with a soldering iron you can move a wire to select a contact with the opposite sense.

My keyboard sustain now has reversed polarity on random occasions...have tried everything, and it's not my pedal because the same things happen with different pedals.


I would suspect the sustain pedal jack on the keyboard is either dirty or defective. Try using some contact cleaner first, and if that doesn't work replace the jack.

My clavanova cvp-96 sustains all the time, pedal up or down. Pedals have normal mechanical action. It started intermitant but now all the time.


You could try this ( some pianos determine polarity when turned on if pedal is plugged in )

1.Remove the pedal from the keyboard. Turn on without inserting pedal. Plug in pedal whilst turned on. If it works you're done.

If it is still backwards go to step 2.

2. Remove the pedal. Plug in the pedal. Turn on. Try it. If it works you're done.

If not go to step 3.

3. Buy a genuine Yamaha product or a switchable pedal.

I have a Casio CDP 200R. I recently purchased a FC4 foot pedal but it works in the reverse way. I tried switching the piano off and then plugging it in and it still does not work. Can you please let me...


You should try having the pedal connected when you turn unit on. Some pedals can be rewired to act opposite... However I believe this pedal should work with the Casio. You can open the pedal and see if you can move one wire so it works opposite. Also verify that the jack is set to the "SUS" setting per your user manual... around page E14

every sustain pedal got different polarity.. normally just go to global setting on your keyboard and change damper polarity setting to plus or minus (select which one work with your sustain padle).

Hello- my P95 sustain pedal does not work when plugged in but the sustain works when you disconnect the cord from the back of the keyborad


This is confusing... you say "the sustain works when you disconnect the cord"? How can that happen? and doesn't work when it is plugged in.

MOST sustain pedal problems are due to people using a different pedal than the keyboard is designed to use. It is very common that someone tries to use a Roland sustain pedal on a Yamaha and oof course it doesn't work because the Roland pedal is normally closed and Yamaha usually requires a normally open contact.

A FEW keyboards now check the state of the pedal input when power is first turned on and configure the pedal polarity accordingly. For these keyboards, make sure the pedal is plugged in before power is turned on.

The answer is NO... Roland uses the opposite sense switches on foot pedals... They use NIRMALLY CLOSED and your Yamaha is a NORMALLY OPEN switch.

SOMETIMES you can open these pedals and find that the pedal has the opposite sense switch available and you only have to unsolder and move one wire to make it a NORMALLY CLOSED pedal.

When I plug the sustain pedal in, it remains on sustain (regardless of whether I push the pedal or not, so it's not the polarity that's a problem)


Try testing your switch for function by testing it with a volt ohm meter to make sure the cord and switch are functional. In this case if it is the recommended foot switch it will be momentary on or off. That is if you are using your meter to test across the plug, when you press down you should have no resistance displayed if there was resistance when you connected the probes or resistance displayed if there was none when you originally connected the probes. If the switch is good, your problem is internal to the keyboard and you will have to troubleshoot the circuit on the board. Another possibility is the solder joint has failed where the sustain pedal jack is mounted or the jack itself has failed.

I have a Roland HP 2e digital piano - Foot pedal problem


The ROLAND pianos USUALLY require that you use a normally closed sustain pedal.

MANY pedals are the opposite and close when pressed. SOMETIMES you can open the pedal and reverse the way the switch works.
