Question about Roland RD-700NX SuperNATURAL Stage Piano
When I'm playing a song on my piano, the piano will randomly down-tune. Sometimes I feel it is related to my pedal, maybe a setting is wrong? Can you help me with this? Thanks
No, it's not normal.To determine if it's a setting glitch or a hardware problem, perform a factory reset and see if the problem continues. If it does, it's a hardware problem and needs to go to the shop. Here's the reset instructions-

Are we talking about an electronic piano, or a traditional?
If electronic, the main processor chip needs to be replaced. If it's under warranty, take it to an authorized repair place- you can find them on the brand's website. If it's not under warranty, you'll need to make a decision: is the instrument worth fixing, or would replacement be cheaper? Check around, get quotes from several people. (One method I use is to get a quote from a technician, then ask others if they can beat that price.
If we're talking about a traditional piano, the only thing I can think of is that the adjustment pin is loose somehow- worn, maybe? Has it been tuned recently; any strings replaced?
you may need to seek out the services of a piano tuner.

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"
