How do I remove the top cover of a Yamaha Clavinova, CVP 30 digital piano?

There are 2 possible things to look for - can't remember due to age of your instrument.

Look under the piano - about 20cm in from front corners, can you see a screw head set in a metal bracket. If so undo these and the top cover / lid will lift.

If not try : Close cover over keys, get a torch and look above the cover through the slit to the far left and right about 10cm in you might see a screw head - under these (1L 1R ) lift top cover / lid.

I hope this helps

Need to downsize, have a Yamaha Upright Piano, serial # 1250568

Well my friend, not knowing exactly what model this is, makes this a difficult question to answer as the market for upright pianos is really shrinking, but that's not to say it has no value. I can tell you that all pianos need tuning after being moved even down a flight of stairs so don't worry about that detracting from the value. More details would be helpful in answering this question.

How can i have dual voice on x5d korg? I lke piano and strings

Just go to COMBI mode.


Press PAGE+. The display may look like this :dual-voice-x5d-korg-lke-piano-strings-v3bkdlfzxxldunukh1pdnvp1-3-1.jpg

In the example above, A03 and A49 is a sound PROGRAM number.

So in our example, we only activate two voices (two layers).
X5D can combine up to 8 voice. To view the Layer 5-8, press PAGE +.
To change the sound of your choice, move the cursor to the corresponding layer, use this button:

then change the value with the slider / value key (YES and NO):

You can also set the level of each layer.
Press PAGE + until a menu appears LEVEL.
Move the cursor and sets its value

How to remove keyboard suzuki piano hg425e

It's very difficult. I advise reading through these instructions all the way to decide if you really want to engage.

First, unplug the piano. Then take the large body lid off the piano. Slide out the 2 pins on which the lid pivots on the left side.

As you start the unscrewing phase, I advise carefully labelling the origin of all the screws (in small dishes perhaps) or it will be very tough to put back together.

Unscrew the ~8 screws holding the fabric cover over the speakers. Two of these screws are triangular head so you'll need a special screw driver. Lift the fabric covered wood inner cover carefully - there's a fabric tab on the left side to give you a start. There are two speakers attached to the underside of the inner cover. Unplug two speaker wires from each speaker by pulling the connection points out and away from the speaker.

Next, take off the keyboard lid. There are 2 screws holding it on each side to the main frame box. Lift it straight up since it rests on 2 wooden pivots.

Release the display panel. There is 1 screw on each side into the frame, and 4 sets of 2 screws along its back edge. Once freed, lift it back carefully and out of the way - there are a lot of wires attached to the display panel and it's best if you don't tamper with any of them. The play in the wires should let you rest it on the main piano box.

Next remove the end blocks beside the keys. There are two screws holding each end block to the floor of the cabinet. Once unscrewed, slide the blocks toward the back about 1 cm to free and lift out of place. The left block has the power wires attached so handle it gently and fold back onto the sound box to get it out of the way without disconnecting it.

Next you must remove the front panel and key box. The front panel faces outward just below (and in front of) the keys. The key box contains the keys, the weighted levers beneath the keys, the contact points and the key electronics - all contained or sitting on a metal box.

There are several steps to remove it. The easiest way may be to leave the front panel attached to the key box - and separate them later.

First, unscrew the ~8 screws holding the back of the key box to the floor of the cabinet. (This will also detach the ground wire.) Then trace the wire ribbon emerging from the back of the key box and detach it from the motherboard - you may need to snip a plastic zip tying the ribbon to other ribbons.

Underneath the piano detach the input jack box on the left side (6 screws) and detach the disk player box on the right side (6 screws). Unfortunately these two boxes block some of the screws you must access.

Next, remove the two rows of ~8 screws along the front underside edge. The first row is ~2 cm from the front edge and the second row is about 5 cm from the edge.

You can now remove the key box and front panel. They should slide forward out of the front of the piano.

You can detach the front panel from the key box by releasing two screws on each side.

Set the key box on a work table. To free the keys, remove one of the plates holding the keys from the back. Each plate holds about 8 keys and has 4 screws to remove. The ones on the ends have less. Next, pry up the black plastic strip anchoring the backs of the keys.

Individual keys may now be removed. To remove a key push it straight backwards from it's normal resting position about 3-4 mm. With a little wiggling, the back of the key should pop out of its restraint. With the back released, slide the front forward and lift it off the key box. A key can also be removed by lifting the front clear of the lip holding it, and then sliding the back portion backwards 3-4 mm - although this requires a lot of wiggling. Use the first method if possible. It may be frustrating to get the first one, but it is possible.

You should be able to see the metal cantilevers beneath the keys. These are what stick. The cantilevers pivot on plastic bushings around two metal axles - the ends of which are visible from the end of the key box (once a small plastic cover on each end is removed - one screw each).

The bushings become worn or swell and stick to each other and their surroundings. You can try blasting them out with air and then adding a few drops of lubricating oil.

When this did not work for me, I toyed briefly with removing the two metal axles, This would allow cleaning all the plastic bushings individually by hand and replacing any defective ones. But there would still be little guarantee that sticking would not reoccur at any time, especially since the instrument is now old/compromised. Furthermore, removing the axles would necessitate taking off all the keys, and all the tiny screws along the top of the plates, and removing all the electronics from the key box.

Removing the axles would mean that to re-insert them each key would have to be threaded, (from the edges in). An enormous task.

I decided to call it quits. I'm now looking for either a new key box I can purchase intact, or another piano, not a Suzuki!!

The fan on the back of my marshall mg 100HDFX is making a weird noise when i first turn it on. It eventually sounds normal after about three minutes. Im not sure what i need to do?

You can either oil it up OR replace it for around 20$
Both ways involve removing the amp from the casing by unscrewing the 6 screws on top and sliding it out and then getting the fan out

locate the fan; locate the 4 outside screw covers that are next to the fan grill screws and pop them open. Remove the four screws that are under those plastic covers. The fan should separate. Take Fan out and remember how it was in there.
To oil: lift the sticker and locate the rubber plunger in the middle of the fan; remove it. Then, put ONE drop of regular 3-1oil NOT-wd-40, pb blaster or bike lube. re-assemble
To replace: just unplug old fan and then replace with new fan. I recommend replacing the fan when it gets to the point of bearing noise because oil doesn't always fix this.
