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

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.

You may be trying to use this with a Roland synth... they require the OPPOSITE type switch.
If you have a Yamaha higher end product such as Tyros, there is a setup screen in the utility menus to set the polarity of the sustain and other inputs and that setting may be wrong.

On SOME Yamaha pianos, there is an electrolytic capacitor 1mfd/50v that becomes leaky and causes this. On those with the particular main board the capcitor is at location C94. On other pianos there are other caps that bypass the wire from the pedals that are ceramic. Likely one of these has shorted. There is also a possibility that the pedal contact has shorted. Test for this by unplugging the pedal cable. If it still sustains, then problem is internal. Unless you are adept at electronics this is NOT a DIY repair.
