I have a Technics digital piano with 1 dead key. The piano is about 10 years old and in great shape. The key stopped working after my toddler started banging on the keyboard. Is this fixable?

    Thanks for your response. My piano is a sx-px336 if that helps. It has the Dynamic Action Keyboard.

If your piano is the same as mine, there is a rubber membrane with contacts imbedded in it that sits on top of a circuit board. The key pushes the contact in the membrane onto the contact causing a note on. What happens is the cylindrical part of the membrane that holds the contact can get torn and the contact will no longer travel in a straight line to trigger the note. The entire membrane strip has to be replaced. The strip on my piano was discontinued and I had to manufacture one from an extra Roland membrane that had some bad contacts in it. You will have to contact Technicsat www2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/PNAEndecaSearchCmd for support. If you don't feel comfortable tackling the repair yourself consult a good piano tuner/repair place in your area for advice.

I have a Technics PR-305 Digital Piano. I had a couple of guys come out to see if they could fix it. Only the LCD display and the front light worked. It must be the power supply.

I have a Technics PR-305 Digital Piano in which I play on. I took apart the Digital piano to get to the rubber contact to clean them. later on I went to turn on the piano and it didn`t work.


Attempted to clean? Not a good idea obviously...Take it apart like you did before and look at the wiring and imagine that you can divine the thing to reveal some logical explanation. If you used a contact cleaner or spray to clean, that could be death to that piano my friend.

I Have a Technics PR-305 Digital piano that I have for a little over 12 years ago that I enjoy playing on very much, I have a distortion problem in my speakers it`s not very bad I was told in Fixya th


The Speakers can be replaced with any brand. The thing you need to know is the OHM rating for the speaker. OHM is also called impedance. Unless the sticker has fallen off the back of the speaker that information will be on that sticker. OHM rating MUST match the old speaker. For instance 4 OHM, 8 OHM, 16 OHM are common ratings. All different ratings but VERY important to get this correct otherwise you could damage the electronics of your instrument.

The graded action has stopped working, any help greatly appreciated!


The graded action is only that there are different counterweights on the various keys. They are a sort of "J" shaped pieces of steel that vary in length. I don''t know how the graded part could stop working, as they just vary the key "feel" across the keyboard. Are you saying this key "feel" has been lost?

Loose keys on my wonderful Technics digital piano


You would be very surprised of how few moving parts are in side one of these keyboards. There is no fix to the action,trust me. play the day lights out of it until it stops then get a new one. Have some fun and explore, if you find an old one that is shot, take it a part and you will see what I mean. These units are really a disposable instrument.
I hope this doesn't disappoint you . I hope it helped. Keep on rockin in the free world. DFD
