SOURCE: Digital Piano has sticking key

Typically LOTS of screws... concentrate on those around the edge. USE GREAT care and force nothing when removing the cover...and great care of cables between the cover and the base. Mark the cables so you remember the direction they attach.

When you get edge screws out, then gentle lift and see where it seems to be held...

Some of these synths have 50 to take out to get apart. MOST are in plastic bosses and keep track of the size and length as you can put too long a one in the wrong place and crack the boss.

I use a compartmented plastic tray to keep the screws in order.

It kinda depends on if a hammer is broke or key is broke. Or if a foreign object is stuck in there. Typically not hard if you can remove screws and remember how they go back in. TypicAlly the bottom panel comes off keyboards ( start by removing those screws ) or the top case will fold up ( still bottom of keyboard screws ) then multiple screws to realease keyboard assembly. May have to disconnect some wires/ ribbon cables so have a sharpie ready to label to ensure correct reassembly. Then it's all about if they have separate keys or a keytree or sometimes just removing ba key and reseating fixes sticking problems. Get yourself a can of blow off or contact cleaner just in case. Not sure who locally to you sell parts but you can always call manufacturer and ask who does their distribution for parts.

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

How do you repair sticking keys


Dependent on what piece of equipment you have, the difficulty is always the strip down. Most stuck keys are caused by dust and other foreign bodies getting into the key bed. It is probably a good idea to completely remove the key bed for complete inspection as other keys may fail as time goes on. Search the web for a service manual, this will give vital information as to what goes where and what the procedure is for removal. One you have the key bed removed, take time to observe how the keys are removed. The problem may be found under the key itself. The good news is, seldom is this an electronic issue, much more a mechanical issue.

Ydp 223 some keys are starting to stick to on the downstroke when not struck with a perfectly vertical stroke. varying degrees of affliction. instrument 2 years old thanks for any help


Yamaha keyboards can be prone to sticking keys due to the rear part of the key cracking around the return spring - if this is the case the only solution is replacing the affected key modules. However this problem generally only occurs with long term use by very physical players.
Otherwise the problem may be caused by a build up of dust / fluff between adjacent keys - try raking out the spaces with a thin piece of fairly rigid plastic (maybe a credit card might work?)

It's not really for the faint of heart, but generally this is caused by gunk getting into the key circutry. Underlying the 3000's keyboard is a silicone pad with 2 contacts on it, the measurement between each being hit is the issue usually but yours just sounds like there's something in there causing a physical or contact obstruction.

What you really want to do is to remove the keys and clean everything but this isn't easy... You could try using 99% alcohol (from a pharmacy) to clean inside it which may well help you.

There's a good thread on a similar issue at:

http://www.electronicspoint.com/roland-hp-3000s-digital-piano-dodgy-note-t18946.html

Which may help you work out how to do the disassembly if you are brave, but I would start with pouring some alcohol in and poking it and hoping for the best 1st. It sounds crude, but it works amazingly well with some things.
