SOURCE: the "i" key failed after a coffee spill. want to replace keyboard

No need to replace keyboard. If it really failed than none of the keys would work. Unplug it, turn it upside down, unscrew all the screws, open it up, clean top of he contact board with cloth dipped in alcohol. You can wash plastic parts and membrane manually in warm water with dish washing detergent. After that, wrap it in towel to dry. You can use a hair dryer but from a distance. Drying can take hours unless you work in it. Than just put all back together and screw back the screws. Plug in keyboard.

This is a common problem with Yamaha keyboards. The problem is caused by worn-out rubber contacts in the keyboard assembly. In my old Clavinova CLP-500, there was one long rubber contact strip under the keys with two parallel strips of semiconductor material. The Clavinova circuitry determines key velocity by measuring the timing between when the key hits the first and second strips of semiconductor material. The harder you play a key, the less time it takes the key to hit the second semiconductor strip after hitting the first.
After years of playing the keyboard, the keys eventually cause tears in the semiconductor material and this messes up the timing measurement for key velocity. The only solution is to take the keyboard apart and replace the rubber contact strip with a new one.
I got rid of my CLP-500 four or five years ago and got a new CLP-170. The CLP-170 is now having exactly the same problem that the CLP-500 had. Yamaha has re-designed the rubber contacts in the CLP-170 so that there are now eight individual contact strips instead of one long one. The problem is essentially the same, though. You have to take the keyboard apart and replace the worn out rubber contacts.
Here are the part numbers for the rubber contacts that need to be replaced in the CLP-170: V8286600 Rubber Contact, 12 keys, D-C#   Qty. 6 V8286800 Rubber Contact, 11 keys, A-C#   Qty. 1 V8286700 Rubber Contact, 5 keys, D-C   Qty. 1
I suggest you also get a copy of the CLP-170 service manual, part number 001677. It has descriptions of all the steps necessary to take the thing apart and put it back together again. You'll also need a "rod" (which is just a long dowel), part number TX000670. Before you take the circuit boards off the keyboard assembly, you have to insert the dowel between the keys and the frame to keep the keys from falling back and getting in your way. A 5-foot long 1/4-inch dowel will probably work. (I haven't yet taken apart my CLP-170, and I don't have Yamaha's "rod," so I'm not sure if 1/4 inch is the right size or not. I'll report back here if it's not.)
Good luck, Howard

Where and how can I buy a replacement keyboard for Yamaha CVP 305M? Thanks, Michael


There is a well documented problem that occurs with the keybed on some of these models due to a manufacturing fault. Take a look at the keys that are sticking. Is the gap on either side of the key the same ? If not then the key normally leans slightly to the left rubbing on the adjacent key causing the sluggish action. The fixing tab at the back of the key breaks causing the spring pressure to push sideways.

You can just replace the offending key but the problem will eventually return. You could replace the whole keybed but this is a very expensive fix.

Keys are around £ 15.00 each.
Replacement keybeds around £ 450.00

Am looking for a power supply board for yamaha keyboard


Normally if the board is there, I repair failed components. If the board is missing, call Yamaha America parts dept. They MAY have the part you need. That will be the only source of a complete replacement. Power supply boards are usually easily repaired.

Two of my keboard keys got hit by a child. They won't return to playing position. CLP-370


Hi there,
you'll need to open the keboard and check for the keys that has a missing mechanism on it. It usually is a stopper to prevent the keys from "sticking". You can use crazy glue or mighty bond to stick the broken parts together.

Hope this helps

How doI open a Yamaha P120 to fix sticky keys?


I've had the very same problem twice so far. The only solution I figured is to simpy purchase an equivalent key (contact Yamaha service in your country for this) and to replace the broken one. The reason why the key doesn't work smoothly as the other one is not dirt therefore any cleaning won't help. The key is cracked deep in the place where it's attached to its 'axis'. So you'll need to remove all the screws and unmount the cover (it needs a sideshift to open once the screws are removed), be careful with the speaker wires. However you'll need firm moves anyway. Opening is tricky and gets me surprised anytime I do it so you'll need some courage :). Replacing the key is even more tricky. You'll have to remove the broken one by pulling it horizontaly (use some force, it's broken anyway). Placing a new key you'll need to uplift the 'hammer' and then slide a new one. I'm sure you'll figure it out once you see it with your own eyes (it's really hard to decribe but not so hard to do it). Hope you'll do fine. I haven't tried glueing the crack for I doubt it would work for long. Good luck!

Keys not sounding as loud as others


Hi, BHOWDY.
Probably the best thing to do is call the Yamaha service center nearest you. I live in the Los Angeles area, and the Yamaha service center closest to me is in Buena Park. I called them on the phone and told them what the problem was, and they knew immediately what parts were needed and they shipped them out that same day.
The contacts that seem to wear out the fastest are the ones near the middle of the keyboard. On my CLP-170, it's the keys between middle C and the G above that -- probably no more then 4 or 5 keys. However, I ordered replacement contacts for all 88 keys because once you take the piano apart to replace the contacts, you may as well replace all of them.
Good luck, Howard
