SOURCE: Roland Dp 2 Damper Pedal dont work

I'm 90% sure the pedal is shot ... It could be the switch ... Open the thing up (If your confident) and look to see if a wire has come loose ... If no wires are loose then try another working pedal with the keyboard.

If it still won't damp then there is a problem with your keyboard and I do not suggest opening up one of those ... I used to repair sockets and keys on those for a local boys school and there are full of things that can break if not opened properly,

My suggestion is getting someone in to repair the keyboard if its that ... If its the pedal then either get a new one if you don't want the old one repaired ... Or repair it yourself (pretty easy if its the wiring ... fiddly if its the switch but only attempt if your confident and have the proper tools).

SOURCE: My sustain pedal does not work on my Roland Juno-D keyboard.

Have you tried the pedal straight into the amp without going thru the Roland?

Does the sustain pedal turn on with the foot pedal or is it a separte stomp switch to turn it on?

SOURCE: Roland DP-2 pedal not functioning correctly.

There are two types of damper pedal switches, on that is closed until you press it, and one that closes when your press it. It sounds like your Casio is expecting one type and your Roland pedal is the other type. A quick way to test this is to plug a guitar cable into the Casio pedal input and see if the keyboard sustains. If it does, then your Casio requires an "normally closed" switch.

Some pedals have a small switch near the cord or even on the bottom of the pedal that will reverse the switching operation (BOSS pedals, a division of Roland, have this feature). If you can find that, then change the switch position and you should be OK.

If not, and you feel like digging into your pedal, you could take the bottom off of the pedal and check out the switch itself. Many pedals use a switch that can be used either way. The clue will be on the switch itself. If there is an extra tab on the switch that is unused, then switch the wire that is furthest away from that tab to that tab. This will probably involve soldering, but it is nearly impossible to damage anything.
If moving the wire that is furthest away does not do anything, then try putting that wire back and switching the other one.

If your pedal does NOT have an extra tab, you're SOL, unless you want to buy a replacement switch (unsure of make). If this is the case, you are probably better off getting a different damper pedal - preferably one that is marketed as "universal"

Theres a good article at recordingreview.com. If you join which is free you have access to a lot of great information. You can download Midiox to troubleshoot your midi connections etc. Make sure that your transmit channel on your keyboard matches up with the receive channel in your program. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: looking for a schematic of the Casio ctk-700 to

The keyboard is LIKELY scanned as a matrix.

You have two problems:

The contacts in the Thomas will have to be totally disconnected rendering use of any of the Thomas organ unlikely.

The second problem is that the keyboard LIKELY has velocity sensing. This means TWO contacts must be used PER note. One contact "makes" first and "breaks" last. This is used for velocity sensing on synths. The Thomas foot pedals likely only have a single contact per pedal, and even if they had two, it is unlikely they sequentially close..

The matrix scanning is accomplished by sensing the connection of two crossing points on a matrix of circuit lines. USUALLY each of 12 wires tie to all of one note across the board. Then two other lines for each octave "strobe" the first make contact and then the second of those strobes the second make contact. There are two of these strobe lines for EACH octave on the board.

Remember that these lines scan at digital logic speeds so wire length and NOISE/STAIC DISCHGARGE PROTECTION is a must.

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

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.

I've got a Casio Privia (PX-400R) keyboard and it seems that the pedal jack has gone out. It's the 3 pedal jack circuit board. I took the keyboard apart almost completely to take a closer look at the jack...


Hi genoness1,

If you noticed that the pedal works on and off depending on the jack plug positioning, it is because the jack is already broken loose from the solder on the board. If the pedal that you are using can normally open as most or normally closed like Roland types, you can still replace the loosed jack. Unit has to be opened and correct jack replaced.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Hello- my P95 sustain pedal does not work when plugged in but the sustain works when you disconnect the cord from the back of the keyborad


This is confusing... you say "the sustain works when you disconnect the cord"? How can that happen? and doesn't work when it is plugged in.

MOST sustain pedal problems are due to people using a different pedal than the keyboard is designed to use. It is very common that someone tries to use a Roland sustain pedal on a Yamaha and oof course it doesn't work because the Roland pedal is normally closed and Yamaha usually requires a normally open contact.

A FEW keyboards now check the state of the pedal input when power is first turned on and configure the pedal polarity accordingly. For these keyboards, make sure the pedal is plugged in before power is turned on.

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.

When i plug it in to the sustain slot in my yamaha keyboard it makes the notes longer without me pressing the pedal.


You may have a pedal that is ROLAND compatible which is OPPOSITE sense from what the Yamaha requires. The Yamaha takes a NORMALLY OPEN contact.

Some Yamaha keyboards such as TYROS have a parameter that you can set to permit using either type pedal.

Some pedals have a switch to change them to use with either type keyboards.

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.

Please note that ROLAND equipment USUALLY uses Normally closed (electrically) damper pedals for their equipment. Most other brands use normally open ones. If you are using a non-Roland pedal, that is likely the problem.

SOME PEDALS require opening and changing a wire (involves soldering) to match the unit you are plugging into. A very few have a switch on them to allow changing polarity.

A few synths, like the Yamaha Tyros have a built in setup screen where one can select the polarity of the attached pedals.

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.

What type of sustain pedal Roland EP-90 digital piano is using - open or closed at rest?


CLOSED is typical for Roland pianos when at rest. (open to sustain).

Note that the jack PROBABLY has a grounding contact so when no pedal is used/plugged in, the jack is shorted at the piano.
