Question about Music

1 Answer

When I press the keys any harder than a light touch on my Yamaha, the entire piano keyboard turns off and on again. Is there a wire loose or something? How do I fix it? It's my friend's Yamaha

This wasn't a problem until a few weeks ago. Is there anywhere I can go to get it repaired, or is something wrong with the batteries? Please help-- it's my friend's.

Is the unit operated directly from the mains or via a mains adaptor (transformer) If it is the later then my guess is that the socket owhere you plug the power adaptor in is loose. They have a habit of breaking away from the circuit board. When you then move the keyboard it breaks the connection . You can test this theory by turning it on, looking at display or light that is on, move the plug and see if it cuts out. If it does the fault is here. Replace the socket and if needed repair pcb as pads tend to break away from board.


If it is mains operated or power socket is OK then it could be loose cables or a break on the PCB. The socket option is the more likely.


If you need more specific info on your keyboard please state make and model and request further info under this topic.

SOURCE: Yamaha P-200 elec piano - when I press the keys, they kind of make clicking sounds like they need to be oiled...what should i do?

I have a Yamaha P200.

One thing I noticed is that it is the hardest electronic keyboard I have ever played. The action is pretty close to a real piano but it is the hardest action I have experienced.

Could you just be a bit out of practice or not recalling accurately what is was like to play it?

Or of course it could be gummed up with crud if it wasn't covered or in it's case while you weren't using it.

There is definitely a sound when the key come up after being played - you could call it a thump or a click I guess. Again it could be a crud issue as well.

Having it cleaned could be helpful.

SOURCE: Kurzweil piano keys are clicking seems to be worn out.

I don't see you doing any damage by having a look but I would get a piano tuner or repairer in to investigate the problem expertly - no slight on you. But if your Church congregation depend on it it's well worth the money.
Good Luck

Check if it might be dragging on the edge of the case. The restoring force for some of these comes from a silicone rubber dome that is oart of the contact. SOMETIMES the dome fails.
