First look for witness marks. SOMETIMES the length of the remaining wires will clue you where they came from.

Next look at the circuitry of the pedal switch. Can you see a common connection to all of the switches? If so, that MAY be a black colored wire or green or white.

ASSUMING you have three pedals, there should be 4 wires. There are exactly 24 possible connecting sequences. Bare the wires and short different pairs till you find the pair that do the sustain. One of those will be the common and the other the sustain.

NOTE: these are all low voltage connections so you should not get any electrical shocks.

Once you find two of the connections, the others become much easier.

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: http://media.rolandus.com/manuals/HP-237_OM.pdf

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.

Pedals stopped working.


If electronic trace the cable back to make sure connection is secure. Sometimes there is a button that turns sustain off, check control panel to make sure it is switched on. If piano is acoustic take off front panel beneath pedal board to make sure wooden rod is still connected.

Sustain pedal does not work on brand new Suzuki mini grand digital piano..... who fixes it


I have this same issue on my Suzuki S-350 Mini Digital Grande I got in Feb 2012 and I still have never fixed it. I'm still searching the internet for an answer. I figured if I could use the middle programmable pedal, that would suffice. But I've never figured out how to program the pedal! I've searched the menus and I can't find it anywhere! Even the manual doesn't show where this supposed menu is.

My yamaha ydp-160 sounds like my pedal is stuck down. All keys are sustaining all notes. Is there an easy fix?


On SOME Yamaha pianos, there is an electrolytic capacitor 1mfd/50v that becomes leaky and causes this. On those with the particular main board the capcitor is at location C94. On other pianos there are other caps that bypass the wire from the pedals that are ceramic. Likely one of these has shorted. There is also a possibility that the pedal contact has shorted. Test for this by unplugging the pedal cable. If it still sustains, then problem is internal. Unless you are adept at electronics this is NOT a DIY repair.

Yep... Roland pedals are reversed, that is, normally closed contacts. Unlike some Yamaha keyboards, the Casio doesn't have an inversion function available. You have two choices to solve this: 1. Buy a pedal with the corect sense 2. Open the Roland pedal and MAYBE with a soldering iron you can move a wire to select a contact with the opposite sense.

I've got a Casio Privia (PX-400R) keyboard and it seems that the pedal jack has gone out. It's the 3 pedal jack circuit board. I took the keyboard apart almost completely to take a closer look at the jack...


Hi genoness1,

If you noticed that the pedal works on and off depending on the jack plug positioning, it is because the jack is already broken loose from the solder on the board. If the pedal that you are using can normally open as most or normally closed like Roland types, you can still replace the loosed jack. Unit has to be opened and correct jack replaced.

Hope it helps.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I have a Roland HP 2e digital piano - Foot pedal problem


The ROLAND pianos USUALLY require that you use a normally closed sustain pedal.

MANY pedals are the opposite and close when pressed. SOMETIMES you can open the pedal and reverse the way the switch works.

The contacts of various switches and keys are likely dirty. They are often conductive rubber and need cleaning with 99% isoprophly alcohol and q-tip. Clean both the conductive rubber pill and th circuit board traces they contact.
