The keyboard has a mic jack that is the same size as the headphones. You probably put the headphone plug into the wrong jack is all.

Yep... Roland pedals are reversed, that is, normally closed contacts. Unlike some Yamaha keyboards, the Casio doesn't have an inversion function available. You have two choices to solve this: 1. Buy a pedal with the corect sense 2. Open the Roland pedal and MAYBE with a soldering iron you can move a wire to select a contact with the opposite sense.

HP 337. Why has sustain pedal begun only working intermittently?


i am not sure about your piano but i have a pedal for my guitar and over time it accumulated dust under the top part that had apparently made a bad connection to the contact. blow it out real good with an air compressor and that may fix it. it did for mine. hope this works.

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

Sustain pedal does not work


Yamaha FC4 and FC5 sustain pedals are normally closed, sorry Fred. Roland is opposite. I suspect the P120 just needs to be reinitialized. Hold down top white key (C) while turning on power. Wait 3 seconds and then release white key. Should now be reset to factory spec. Always plug the pedal in before you turn it on. If it still doesn't work check it with a meter.

Need repairs on Technics SX-PX103-M Model.


Have you had any luck with your Technics piano? I've got the same piano and Mine does not work either. No lights on the control panel, only red power light comes on. Does yours have any led lights besides the power light that come on? I've investigated and I have learned a lot from this piano. 4 main boards. Im pretty sure I've got it down to one board. Interested in selling me any boards from your Piano??

When I plug the fc-5 pedal into a P95 piano, sustain in ON (either I press the foot switch or not) and when I unplug it, sustain goes off, and sometimes it is vice versa, pressing the switch doesn't...


Sounds like a loose wire to me (because the problem isn't consistent) the most likely suspect is the jack plug. Unscrew the body of the plug and check that the two wires are firmly soldered to the terminals inside.

If they're OK you can pop the cover off the footswitch and check that end. As far as I recall that end of the cable goes straight to a PCB (printed circuit board) so be very careful if you need to solder anything. If the solder around the wire connection is cracked, that's a dry joint and can be fixed with a small blob of solder carefully applied.

If all the cable connections are fine there's a problem with the PCB or the micro-switch mounted on it.

Hi, I hope can help me with this problem because I start to get desperate. I have a Clavinova CVP-85A. The sustain effect is always activated, whether the pedals are plugged in or not. I read that to...


It sounds like the inputs from the pedal switches are "floating", that is, not pulled up or down and they are drifting across the logic threshold. If I could find a schematic I could direct you right to the problem. For now, check the voltage across the switch contacts with a high impedance meter. Also check the resistance to ground of the common of the contacts. Without a schematic I am afraid to have you try things lest I direct you to do something that would cause damage.

My pedal is not sustaining - it is plugged in at the pedal outlet, not sure what else to look for?


The first question is has it ever worked? If this is new, the connector of the pedals is a mini DIN type which is REAL hard to get seated properly. Often something blocks it from seating fully. Remove the plug and with a bright light inspect the pins... they are EASILY broken off. Aligning the connector carefully and making sure it seats is important. This piano also has a foot under the pedals to screw down against the floor but that isn't wht cause the pedals to not work.

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.

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.
