My clavanova cvp-96 sustains all the time, pedal up or down. Pedals have normal mechanical action. It started intermitant but now all the time.


You could try this ( some pianos determine polarity when turned on if pedal is plugged in )

1.Remove the pedal from the keyboard. Turn on without inserting pedal. Plug in pedal whilst turned on. If it works you're done.

If it is still backwards go to step 2.

2. Remove the pedal. Plug in the pedal. Turn on. Try it. If it works you're done.

If not go to step 3.

3. Buy a genuine Yamaha product or a switchable pedal.

Amp and chorus pedal


You'll need 2-3 INSTRUMENT CABLES to do this. There are TWO ways to try your connection to make it work:
FIRST WAY: try to connect it to the FRONT of the amp. DO NOT try to connect the pedal to the rear of the unit where it says "FX INSERT." Use one cord from your instrument to the "IN" port on the pedal. Use the second cable to run from the "OUT A" port from the pedal and connect to the "INPUT" on the amp itself. This should work without fail. This is the easiest way to see if the pedal is even working correctly or not.
SECOND WAY: If you want to loop it through the back, then you'll need two (2) cables (instrument) to do this. One cable to go from AMP "Insert" to the "IN" port on the pedal. One cable to go from the "OUT A" on the pedal, and back into the "Return" port on the amp. If neither way works, then you've likely gotten a bad pedal. Unfortunately, Behringer pedals are not known to be as high quality as some of their other gear. Best of luck!

Ctk-651 sustain pedal working backwards


Buy sustain pedal made for CASIO or switable model.
Pedal for Yamaha or Roland will work in reverse on a Casio.
If you cannot return for exchange, then open up and solder a different type of micro switch.

I have a Casio CDP 200R. I recently purchased a FC4 foot pedal but it works in the reverse way. I tried switching the piano off and then plugging it in and it still does not work. Can you please let me...


You should try having the pedal connected when you turn unit on. Some pedals can be rewired to act opposite... However I believe this pedal should work with the Casio. You can open the pedal and see if you can move one wire so it works opposite. Also verify that the jack is set to the "SUS" setting per your user manual... around page E14

I plugged a sustain pedal from my Yamaha DX7 on the dumper pedal jack but it works opposite as it should (by pressing the pedal sound cancels as i release the keys; when pedal runs completely free sounds...


every sustain pedal got different polarity.. normally just go to global setting on your keyboard and change damper polarity setting to plus or minus (select which one work with your sustain padle).

Hello- my P95 sustain pedal does not work when plugged in but the sustain works when you disconnect the cord from the back of the keyborad


This is confusing... you say "the sustain works when you disconnect the cord"? How can that happen? and doesn't work when it is plugged in.

MOST sustain pedal problems are due to people using a different pedal than the keyboard is designed to use. It is very common that someone tries to use a Roland sustain pedal on a Yamaha and oof course it doesn't work because the Roland pedal is normally closed and Yamaha usually requires a normally open contact.

A FEW keyboards now check the state of the pedal input when power is first turned on and configure the pedal polarity accordingly. For these keyboards, make sure the pedal is plugged in before power is turned on.

When i plug in my sustain pedal instead of it sustainin when i step on the pedal it works in reverse so now when i step on the pedal it stops the sustain


Roland requires a pedal that is normally closed, open sustains. MOST pedals work the opposite. SOME pedals you can open and rewire... but not all can be.

The inlet jack for a damper pedal is not working, how can i get to it to see the problem?


Before opening the unit VERIFY that your pedal is working with an ohmmeter. Pedals and the cables often fail. Often people try to use a pedal not intended for this synth and they find the pedal inoperative.
