SOURCE: Sustain pedal not working on my Yamaha P-90

What I figured out is that when i turn on the keyboard, if i hold down the pedal by accident, it will work in reverse. I dont know if this is what you mean. If it is, just dont touch the pedal when you turn it on. If it isn't, try to return the pedal. I dropped one, it had this problem, and they gave me a new one. Your cord for it might have been bent (?). Also, turn the keyboard on with the pedal already plugged in. It's not made to be plugged in while it's on. Hope this helps. - Matthew

SOURCE: My sustain pedal does not work on my Roland Juno-D keyboard.

Have you tried the pedal straight into the amp without going thru the Roland?

Does the sustain pedal turn on with the foot pedal or is it a separte stomp switch to turn it on?

SOURCE: Roland DP-2 pedal not functioning correctly.

There are two types of damper pedal switches, on that is closed until you press it, and one that closes when your press it. It sounds like your Casio is expecting one type and your Roland pedal is the other type. A quick way to test this is to plug a guitar cable into the Casio pedal input and see if the keyboard sustains. If it does, then your Casio requires an "normally closed" switch.

Some pedals have a small switch near the cord or even on the bottom of the pedal that will reverse the switching operation (BOSS pedals, a division of Roland, have this feature). If you can find that, then change the switch position and you should be OK.

If not, and you feel like digging into your pedal, you could take the bottom off of the pedal and check out the switch itself. Many pedals use a switch that can be used either way. The clue will be on the switch itself. If there is an extra tab on the switch that is unused, then switch the wire that is furthest away from that tab to that tab. This will probably involve soldering, but it is nearly impossible to damage anything.
If moving the wire that is furthest away does not do anything, then try putting that wire back and switching the other one.

If your pedal does NOT have an extra tab, you're SOL, unless you want to buy a replacement switch (unsure of make). If this is the case, you are probably better off getting a different damper pedal - preferably one that is marketed as "universal"

SOURCE: Ensoniq KT-88 - sustain pedal works opposite the way it should

Usually that indicates that the polarity of the jack for the sustain pedal has been switched or someone has substituted another pedal with the wrong polarity. Try looking in the manual to see if that is an editable parameter for people who might not be able to obtain an original pedal. You may have to initialize the keyboard which is on page viii of the manual. The jacks on the back for footswitches are on page 1 and 2. The footswitch settings are on page 9. I found the manual here:http://soundprogramming.net/manuals/Ensoniq_KT-76_KT-88_Manual.pdf I don't know if you have the single footswitch or the optional stereo footswitch. If it is the single footswitch, the default setting should work correctly if it is the original SW-2 or SW-6 pedal switches. If it is the optional SW-10, the FTswL setting should be Unused. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: What type of sustain pedal Roland EP-90 digital

CLOSED is typical for Roland pianos when at rest. (open to sustain).

Note that the jack PROBABLY has a grounding contact so when no pedal is used/plugged in, the jack is shorted at the piano.

Are the currently manufactured Roland Home Piano series pedal assemblies compatible with the Roland HP237?


This wish an after market pedal, or the original 3's connector? If the keyboard is on when you plug and unplug that, it is likely due to a voltage reference getting confused. Usually when you get constant sustain then most likely a switch is stuck closed, or open, down there in the pedal. How these things work normally is that a pliable switch is opened, for sustain, or closed. It depends on the keyboard. Some keyboards have a setting inside them to accommodate both types of pedals, and some pedals have a switch to choose either. Your keyboard does not have a setting that I can tell, other than adjustments for a resonance option (nice feature). I am not sure the newer RPU-3 pedal is compatible, it seems to be for the newer models. If you are handy with a volt meter, then can check the cable's pins for a common, then a pin that changes with each pedal (use continuity mode, beeps when circuit is closed). Could be a piece of dust is in there, or hair or carpet stuff, and a good cleaning would fix that from blocking the normal function. Manual Link: http://media.rolandus.com/manuals/HP-237_OM.pdf

Ctk-651 sustain pedal working backwards


Buy sustain pedal made for CASIO or switable model.
Pedal for Yamaha or Roland will work in reverse on a Casio.
If you cannot return for exchange, then open up and solder a different type of micro switch.

Fc4 sustain pedal is in "sustain" mode at all times -- it won't release the sustained notes. I tried plugging the pedal in (to a roland ep-9) before powering up and had the same problem.


Sorry, but the Yamaha pedal has the opposite sense (it is a normally open contact) than what is REQUIRED by Roland equipment. Roland requires a Normally Closed contact. Unfortunately, one is confused because the Roland jack for the sustain shorts itself to no sustain when you unplug a pedal. SOMETIMES one can open a pedal and with soldering iron change a wire to reverse the pedal sense IF the particular pedal has both contacts available.

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.

When i plug in my sustain pedal instead of it sustainin when i step on the pedal it works in reverse so now when i step on the pedal it stops the sustain


Roland requires a pedal that is normally closed, open sustains. MOST pedals work the opposite. SOME pedals you can open and rewire... but not all can be.

Switch on e50 and sustain pedal not holding notes


I assume you are plugging this into a ROLAND brand product as the Roland sustain uses a normally CLOSED contact while MOST other brands use NORMALLY OPEN contacts.

The Roland synths now monitor the pedal as the power is turned on and supposedly decides which contact type is used.

Remember that for MANY voices, such as piano, notes are held longer BUT they do not continue indefinitely just like the sustain on a real piano works. On a real piano the dampers are lifted, but the strings eventually stop ringing due to the losses of energy in the strings.

Some voices will be held,such as organ tones.

I don't have enough information from your post regarding what voice you are having trouble with.

1.Make sure you are plugged in to DAMPER (not FC1 or FC2) 2. Check to see if the notes STOP sustaining when you PRESS the pedal. If that is the case, first try turning off the Roland with the pedal plugged in and restarting with the pedal pressed down. 3. Press the EDIT button and scroll to Damper Polarity. See if it's set to Standard or Reverse. 4. If problem persists after all that, try holding the pedal jack into the Roland at different angles and then try the same with where the cable connects to the pedal. At that point, you can either attempt to repair the pedal or get another one.
Hope this helps, Stewart

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.

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.
