I need a volume pedal for a SX KN6000 Technics keyboard

I bought a Yamaha FC7 foot controller - it works, but backwards. When you push down it goes softer (or quieter) instead of louder. There must be a way to reverse the polarity? to make it go louder the more you push down?

Reversing the two wires inside the cable will NOT reverse your problem. Believe me: I tried it with a Behringer FCV100 volume pedal (which I have the same problem with and it's probably the pedal YOU NEED as the FC7 works correctly on my keyboard).

Don't waste a good 1/4" cable on that theory.

As there's no polarity switch on the FC7 the quick and dirty way is to cut the cable and swap the wires around.

How do I fix one key being louder than others?

This will be a problem with the key contact sending the wrong velocitiy. To verify, hook it up to a midi source and see if the same thing happens in the connected device. If so, it will need to go into the shop for repair.

When playing the volume goes in and out (meaning it will just go louder or softer randomly). Have no service center in my state and need help with this.

I would try cleaning the jacks and the input volume pots as a starting point. You can always remove the electronics and ship them to a service center. If it's not in warranty, you can just take it to any local repair shop.

Yamaha FC7 Pedal not operating

Make sure the shaft is turning the volume pot, if so, then potentiometer is bad OR has a bad connection. The cord is probably the cause from being pulled on or the plug needs re-soldering.

I just opened my new piano and middle C pushes harder than all the other keys and plays softer

Take it back to the store (send it back to the store but call first to get a return authorization if you got it online). This sounds like a manufactures defect. It shouldn't work that way.

You can also try calling Yamaha (good customer service historically). Check your packaging for their number. They usually prefer that you call them to get things fixed instead of returning it.

I would not recommend trying any quick fixes anyone else recommends because they can invalidate your warranty from Yamaha

Good luck.

What should I do for connect the fc7 to Roland RD-700sx for controll the loudness? Thanks a lot Heinz

Yamaha pedals MAY not work on the Roland... However, read page 85 of your manual regarding the FC1 and FC2 jacks. plug the pedal into one of them and then assign/select that jack as controller #7 (CC7) which is the volume controller number used in MIDI.

The foot pedals don't seem to work when start/stop and fills. have had it looked at but it seems to work for them and nopt for me. had another one of these years ago and never had any problems. This one...

Are you using foot pedals that came with it? If you use other brands they MAY not be compatible.

For instance, Roland sustain pedals are backwards action of some other brands. Some are normally closed, some normally open.
