SOURCE: Yamaha digital piano clp 170

This is a common problem with Yamaha keyboards. The problem is caused by worn-out rubber contacts in the keyboard assembly. In my old Clavinova CLP-500, there was one long rubber contact strip under the keys with two parallel strips of semiconductor material. The Clavinova circuitry determines key velocity by measuring the timing between when the key hits the first and second strips of semiconductor material. The harder you play a key, the less time it takes the key to hit the second semiconductor strip after hitting the first.
After years of playing the keyboard, the keys eventually cause tears in the semiconductor material and this messes up the timing measurement for key velocity. The only solution is to take the keyboard apart and replace the rubber contact strip with a new one.
I got rid of my CLP-500 four or five years ago and got a new CLP-170. The CLP-170 is now having exactly the same problem that the CLP-500 had. Yamaha has re-designed the rubber contacts in the CLP-170 so that there are now eight individual contact strips instead of one long one. The problem is essentially the same, though. You have to take the keyboard apart and replace the worn out rubber contacts.
Here are the part numbers for the rubber contacts that need to be replaced in the CLP-170: V8286600 Rubber Contact, 12 keys, D-C#   Qty. 6 V8286800 Rubber Contact, 11 keys, A-C#   Qty. 1 V8286700 Rubber Contact, 5 keys, D-C   Qty. 1
I suggest you also get a copy of the CLP-170 service manual, part number 001677. It has descriptions of all the steps necessary to take the thing apart and put it back together again. You'll also need a "rod" (which is just a long dowel), part number TX000670. Before you take the circuit boards off the keyboard assembly, you have to insert the dowel between the keys and the frame to keep the keys from falling back and getting in your way. A 5-foot long 1/4-inch dowel will probably work. (I haven't yet taken apart my CLP-170, and I don't have Yamaha's "rod," so I'm not sure if 1/4 inch is the right size or not. I'll report back here if it's not.)
Good luck, Howard

SOURCE: I need a service manual for Roland FP8 piano, or..

Did you ever get hold of an FP-8 service manual? The weight replacement is relatively simple: The case opens by removal of eight screws, four at each end on the underside. The top then hinges up. Keyboard assembly is removed by first unplugging the two white ribbon connectors at the center, then removing the screws at the front edge (underneath) and the screws (gold) at the back of the assembly (accessible from the top). Keys pop out by spreading the two "wings" at the pivot point, and then the weights (Roland calls them "hammers") lift out. Roland will sell you new ones, but I have no idea whether the replacements are any better than the originals. I've done two of these pianos so far, and have a third waiting to be worked on. I do have a service manual, but I think I downloaded it freebee somewhere.
The other failure mode on this piano is the electolytic coupling caps on the output board - I've replaced all of them on both pianos - don't remember the value offhand.

Check if it might be dragging on the edge of the case. The restoring force for some of these comes from a silicone rubber dome that is oart of the contact. SOMETIMES the dome fails.

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.

take it back, its still under warranty. That means the key has a contact problem in the circuit. you have to take it all apart, clean it, check the contacts....probably lint. You can try vaccumming it and it might fix the problem. I bought one too and it wasnt good

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.

Yamaha CP 300 broken headphone jack


Some keyboards use the amp output sockets for headphone use.
You might need some adapters for your headphones.
If it fell in, you would see an empty hole. This would be unlikely because it is held on by two screws. If all fails, buy an amp with a headphone jack input. Plug the keyboard into the amp and use the amps jack.

My yamaha ydp-160 sounds like my pedal is stuck down. All keys are sustaining all notes. Is there an easy fix?


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.

Hi, I am undecided about which digital piano to buy: Yamaha Arius 141 or Roland F110? help appreciated, thanks, karol.


I have two Yamaha's and I will say they are maintainable. Almost ALL the weighted piano key models use a keyboard made by one company as I understand it. I can easily get service manuals for the Yamaha, not quite as easy for the Roland... same goes for repair parts. Your decision... listen to each and decide. Hint: Use a set of headphones to do the compparision rather than internal speakers as the orientation in a music store can drastically change the sound.

My cp300 destroys songs stored in memory. What's up?


Make sure you CHANGE tracks as if you record over the same track it is destructive. It would be easy to forget to change to an unused track and overlay previous data resulting in loss of the original song.

I need to replace the power transformer on my Yamaha CP-30, Who is the expert on these?


Are you going to replace it yourself or are you looking for a CP300 expert? If you are going to replace it yourself, are you sure it needs replacing? Transformers are seldom a problem in any circuit. If you are needing an expert on Yamaha, look your local directory for a Yamaha Warranty service center. There are many independent shops who have this authorization which gives them access to all the factory technical data and schematics, parts lists etc. The transformer is easy to replace if needed, it is separate from the power supply printed circuit board and is screw mounted.

The keys in the middle range of my Yamaha electronic piano P-200 seem to be stuck and are very difficult to play - takes a lot of strength to get any sound. Could humidity be a problem? Could piano...


Although the keys have a weighted feel, this is not because of a system involving connection t hammers as in an acoustic piano. This is done mechanically, however, which would indicate a need for cleaning. If you have an authorized Yamaha service center in you area they would need to do the cleaning.

Yamaha P-120 Piano: Graded Hammer (NOT key) dysfunction?


My opinion is you should take the instrument to a yamaha authorized service center.. It's doubtful this will be user serviceable, particularly if the problem isn't on all the keys, and the service center will have access to the parts needed as well as more information from Yamaha than they will share with an end user.
