SOURCE: What type of sustain pedal Roland EP-90 digital

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.

If that is one of the ones with a plastic "hinge/spring", breakage is usually fatal... keep cord and plug for junk box.

First thing is to check the connector is fully seated... sometimes most of the contacts make but one might not. Beyond that, contacts in the pedal are next suspect.

Find out if the adjuster is changing by itself. Put some tape on it to mark the position and check when it appearss to be out of adjustment. If it is unscrewing, you can get a Loctite product to seal the threads.

When I plug the damper pedal into my Roland ep 77 the damper comes on and stays on no matter if the pedal is pressed or not pressed.

Try plugging in the pedal with the Roland powered down or off. With the pedal plugged in, turn the Roland on again. The Roland should sense the polarity upon power up. If this doesn't work, I have had those pedals get defective right out of the box, so try this...Get a ΒΌ inch guitar or signal cable and plug that into the damper jack. The cable will represent an open circuit polarity since nothing is shorting out the leads. See if the EP77 is sustaining or if it is not. Alternately, try shorting the guitar cable by laying a piece of metal across the top and bottom of the jack. A pocket or kitchen knife or any bare wire will do. If this does not work, your assumption about the power supply may be correct.

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:

Hello the cables say R-C-L, and my RD-700GX ports are damper, FC1 and FC2, which cable to which port, thank you.

R-C-L stand for right, center, left... On a standard piano, the RIGHT or "R" pedal is the "damper".

The other pedals are the soft and sostenuto The "Soft" is the LEFT pedal and the Sostenuto the center. The FC controller inputs can usually be configured by the user so you need to read in your user manual how to set those and connect whichever cable to the appropriate FC input.

Fc4 sustain pedal is in "sustain" mode at all times -- it won't release the sustained notes. I tried plugging the pedal in (to a roland ep-9) before powering up and had the same problem.

Sorry, but the Yamaha pedal has the opposite sense (it is a normally open contact) than what is REQUIRED by Roland equipment. Roland requires a Normally Closed contact. Unfortunately, one is confused because the Roland jack for the sustain shorts itself to no sustain when you unplug a pedal. SOMETIMES one can open a pedal and with soldering iron change a wire to reverse the pedal sense IF the particular pedal has both contacts available.

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.

There are two possibilities that come to mind without being able to examine it personally. One is a filter capacitor in the power supply to the amplifier section is starting to fail and is not filtering the a.c. Two and more possible is the damper pedal or the sustain pedal have failed and you are hearing more than one note trying to sustain. Anyways you will have to have a technician service it.

The pedal of our Yamaha YDP223 digital piano is not working .

Check the connector underneath the pedals hasn't become dislodged and of course the one that plugs in underneath. Grvity works to unplug these.

Check the contacts of the pedal switches.

you say pedal... which one? Damper, Sostenuto, or Soft or all of them not working?

A really bad 'off key' note

what is make and model? I have owned several keyboards, with 2 of them Korgs in which I would connect a damper pedal. I noticed that when I help down the pedal, after so too much input within the cpu of the keyboard, it would 'short-circuit' and sound like I had played an 'off-key'

If you have been using the damper pedal, and even if you release a little on up on it, but not all the way, the 'off-keys' will still sound. I must always make sure the pedal is placed in a position that my leverage action of my foot will completely 'release' the overtones still being processed by the keyboard (whether they're audible or not)
