Yamaha has two type keys... one is weighted with a metal counterweight and the other uses silicone domes with conductive rubber pill contacts. Those are easy as you need to clean the pills and the circuit traces they contact with Qtips and 99% isoprophyl alcohol. Then lay the sheet ovra the indexing pins and put on the white key pieces and then the black and install the screws that secure them.
The weighted ones are tricky as sometimes you have to remove some keys and put them in a certain order. There is a leaf spring under each and one needs to get it tucked up in the right place, One first has to tuck the one part toward the player to engage the switch action and then move it toward the back and engage the back pivot... not easy to describe on here.

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 i replace one key on Yamaha YDP161?


A YDP uses the same key type as a basic Yamaha Clavinova. As you have stripped the keyboard to reveal the keys take a look at the end where the key hinges. There will be an arrow pointing to one side. You will need to remove att the screws holding the key base (black plastic ) to the wooden base. Slide the whole keyboard back a couple of inches, push down where the arrow points between the keys, the offending key will pop up. Slide forward and jiggle out. Replace key. reassemble. If the tag on the back of the old key has snapped off remove the piece of debris that might be there before refitting.

Yamaha keys g and c# don't work


You didn't describe your problem with enough details. If the keys operate mechanically, then the problem might be with the integrated switch assembly. You will need to disassemble the entire case enclosure to check the key assemblies. The keys are assembled into sets. You can remove the set with the bad switches and replace the entire group. In some Yamaha models you can replace individual switches ( entire key mechanism). You can also test the switches using a multimeter - simple continuity test.
If your keys are inoperable mechanically, ( won't move or move partially) you will have to disassemble the entire unit to identfy the problem. It may be a simple alignment adjustment or a broken pivot joint. You won't know for sure without removing the internals by taking it apart.
Yamaha has excellent service reps (factory trained) either in repair depots or available for house calls. Go to their web site enter your zip code to find the nearest rep. If you are not comfortable taking the keyboard apart, that is the best solution.

I have a Yamaha S30, that has a couple of keys that play really loudly. No dynamics on 4 keys, just blast away, no touch sensitivity. I bought new in 2000, used at home and gigging. Very reliable until...


I have the same problem.The rubber panel that is used for touch sensitivity (under the keys) inside the case wears down in time. You can split it and shift parts but you eventually will have to replace it. This rubber panel is very hard to get. Good luck.

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
