SOURCE: How do I set the Gemmy Countdown to Christmas Snowman

I am not sure if you found the answer or not. We bought one tonight and did not have the instructions either. What I figured out is the top button will changed from Ct to Cd. The Ct is the time, so you would put in military time for hours min and seconds. The Cd is the date. The first is the last 2 digits of year, then month, then day. I believe the bottom button changed the information and then the top button would change to the next. Hope this helps. Joey

How to restart when piano hangs at Waking up Scanner?


You didn't tell us what instrument you're talking about, so we can't be specific. Your best bet would be to contact the customer service department of the manufacturer.

Key B2 playing to loud, not touch responsive


What is your piano brand and type?
Damage to the contact rubber can cause note plays loudly or,
note does not plays at all.
It is caused by:
1. Carbon rubber contacts dirty / dusty (yellow arrow). Clean with a pencil eraser (or cloth). Gently rub it.

2.
Contact rubber is torn (your case). If this happen,it can not be repaired or glue. So, you have to replace one octave.
The yellow arrow indicates the side that is often torn.

Rubber side that is torn, usually not seen, unless we move / pressing gently on top (In the rubber contact position is not installed on the board.)

How do I fix a stuck piano key on a upright home piano


You'll likely need to try removing the keys, so you can see if something is stuck underneath it. That would be my first move.
In order to do this, follow these steps:

The front panel and the keyboard fall are designed to be easily removed for tuning purposes anyway.

To check it out....The front panel likely has a little clip either side near the top on the inside. Just undo these clips and lift the panel out. The keyboard fall should then be easy to lift out too.

There may be a long wooden rail which you need to take out also. Once inside, the keys themselves can be carefully lifted off the central spikes on which they sit.

Remember how you did this so you can get them back in again.

Since your piano is so old and worn, Often times, the wooden rail in front of the keys (just above your knees when you are playing) bows inwards a little due to age and temperature/humidity fluctuations. This then causes the little white front bit of the keys to jam against the wood and you have to physically lift the keys back up to return them.
If this is the problem you will need to take out the keys and shave some wood off the inside of this rail to allow the keys to move up and down freely again.
Or sometimes you may find you have a small object caught under a key or two. Much simpler to remove and free up your keys, if this is your problem..
Hopefully, this is all you will find wrong with your piano.
If all else fails...
I wouldn't attempt to tune your piano by yourself. I would seek out an experienced piano tuner for that.
But it is worth attempting to repair it first before you go that far.
Good luck !!

Fisher Price Step & Play Piano lights up but no sound.


I assume

No sound when baby steps on the keys (with high volume setting)
You have used alkaline batteries
You have tried replacing your betteries
Tried sliding the power and volume switch off and then back on

If you answer yes for all above then it is time to call Fisher price and ask for replacements.

I want to plug my keyboard into my USB port


I just found the same program with the same cables. I am going to try a usb to midi cable made by m-audio only because I have it hooked up right now to laptop running xp and the old version of Mircacle Piano which is the best by far and it works great. It is an M-Audio usb to midi cable called the UNO or something like that. its the one for 39 bucks very simple. It should work as long as your computer is running windows OS thats compatable or try running in 95 mode. Also some of these programs recognize processor speed and dont work on the newer systems. Good luck with it. have you ever used seen this software before? Ever see Miracle Piano? wondering how they compare.

Mac Driver for Dream Cheeky USB Roll-Up piano


I got one of the drum kits last Christmas, but I have a Mac. Finally, this Christmas, I got around to writing a driver for it. I mean, why not? It runs in Terminal and translates the drumkit hits to MIDI messages which you can use to control GarageBand or Logic or send out a MIDI interface to control MIDI hardware. Doesn't have any of the fancy learning modes or anything, though; just lets you play it. Email mail_ben_schmidt at yahoo com au if you're interested. I doubt it would take much modification to get it to work with the piano, which I expect works on exactly the same principles. But I don't have a piano, so I would need to collaborate with someone or have one lent or donated to me to do that.
