SOURCE: Casio 1600 sustain pedal problem

Not if its like mine, its a completecircuit vs.incomplete circuit problems.

I had the exact same problem with my Casio keyboard and a Yamaha sustain pedal I bought.

I'm not an electrical genius, but I was able to get it to work by opening it up and doing a little modification. Of course I first just tried switching the white wire with the black one but that didn't change anything at all when I tried it. It turns out the Casio wants the circuit completed to sustain, and broken for no sustain, which is the opposite of what the Yamaha pedal does.

I opened it up and mine had three three flat metal strips let's call them Top, Middle and Bottom. The Middle and Bottom ones were joined together on the right side, and the Middle and Top ones were touching on the left side when the pedal was not pressed. These seperated when the pedal was pressed, thereby breaking the circuit because the wires were on the top plate and on the joined Middle/Bottom plate.

So to flip it I:
1. Unsoldered the Bottom wire
2. Cut apart the Bottom and Middle plates on the right.
3. Bent the Middle plate on the right to touch the Top plate instead and soldered those together.
4. Soldered the Bottom wire back on.

That's it! Once I figured it out, it took only a few minutes to fix.
Good luck!
Paul

SOURCE: bought a sustain foot pedal and it works the opposite

Yep!!! Happens all the time and only a few synths have the option of selecting the operating mode.

NOW if you can open the pedal, USUALLY the switch has both the Normally Open and Normally Closed functions that a single wire can be moved to reverse the operation.

USUALLY you will need a soldering iron to make the change.

SOURCE: is a sustain foot pedal similar to a tattoo machine pedal?

The sustain pedals have only two wires. Usually they terminate in a 1/4 inch mono plug.

yamaha USUALLY sustains when switch is closed. Roland usually sustains on a switch between the wires when the switch is open.

NO POWER should be supplied BY the sustain pedal... it is ONLY a switch.

SOURCE: sustain pedal doesn't work any

take it into a music store and try a pedal there in store. If it works, buy the new pedal and charge the guests. If it does not work, you know it's th TS input on the keyboard

SOURCE: I replaced sustain pedal jack...now sustain is on ALL the time, even with pedal unplugged

When you replaced it, you either have the wrong jack, wired it wrong or it is shorted out where you connected it. Recheck the connections.

Casio Privia 410r Piano soft pedal problem


The Casio Privia 410r has two pedal jacks at the back. One is the sustain pedal, the other is the soft/sus jack. Please use the other jack if you want to use sustain pedal. Only 1 of the 2 jacks can be used.


However, if you have the optional sp30a pedal which plugs UNDER the piano instead, then only can you have 3 different piano pedals.

A bought an Yamaha DGX 640 grand a week before and the note sustain for a longer duration and overlaps with the current playing notes. I checked the sustain in the function setting and it is also showing ...


The function setting is for the PANEL sustain (Page 68 of your manual)

The other method of sustain is by footswitch or pedal option. See page 13.

If you use a footswitch, it needs to be a normally open contact type. If you plug a Roland type in, it is opposite polarity and will sustain UNLESS the pedal is pressed. Make sure nothing else is plugged in the sustain jack... headphones that are inadvertently plugged in there would sustain.

1.Make sure you are plugged in to DAMPER (not FC1 or FC2) 2. Check to see if the notes STOP sustaining when you PRESS the pedal. If that is the case, first try turning off the Roland with the pedal plugged in and restarting with the pedal pressed down. 3. Press the EDIT button and scroll to Damper Polarity. See if it's set to Standard or Reverse. 4. If problem persists after all that, try holding the pedal jack into the Roland at different angles and then try the same with where the cable connects to the pedal. At that point, you can either attempt to repair the pedal or get another one.
Hope this helps, Stewart

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?

Sustain pedal not working on my Yamaha P-90


What I figured out is that when i turn on the keyboard, if i hold down the pedal by accident, it will work in reverse. I dont know if this is what you mean. If it is, just dont touch the pedal when you turn it on. If it isn't, try to return the pedal. I dropped one, it had this problem, and they gave me a new one. Your cord for it might have been bent (?). Also, turn the keyboard on with the pedal already plugged in. It's not made to be plugged in while it's on. Hope this helps. - Matthew
