Hi there marklyster

The keys are all touch sensitive. Generally speaking, there is not alot to go wrong in this area. They key contacts may be dirty creating the problem you have.

The keys are not as heavily weighted in the treble cleft on this model, could this be causing the problem. If it is certain keys that are affected, then I would suspect a contact problem. You may need to have the keyboard serviced.

regards
Graeme

THERE IS NO OPTION BELOW TO "PICK AN EXPERT" FOR PIANO. I have a Yamaha Portable Grand Piano, style DGX-640 and have lost my owners manual. I would like to have access to one on line. My main...


I'm sure your piano has a 1/4" stereo headphone jack, and your headset is 1/8". Go to any electronics store and ask for a 1/8" female to 1/4" male stereo adapter.

Arcam AVR200. Buzzing sounds in all 5.1 speakers. Gets louder as volume is turned up. Tried all sorts of different things - different power source, 1 speaker, different modes.


I had the same problem. I was told by a sales guy at a high end audio store that I should try using a 3-Prong To 2-Prong Adapter. I went and bought one. I plugged it in and no more buzzing.

you can find them at HomeDepot, Lowes or dollor store.11_25_2012_6_28_23_pm.jpg

I have a Kenwood vr-405 and for the most part it works. I have been noticing that one front speaker is quite a bit louder than any other speaker. I have tried to adjust it many times and it seems like...


Maybe you should first isolate the problem to the receiver or the speaker by swapping the front speakers with each other to see if the loudness stays with the channel of the speaker.

Or, the acoustics of the room just make that speaker seem louder at the listening position. Try taming it with the adjustments provided in the receiver.

Background music and audio is louder than the main speaking audio


This is an innovation of the marketing people, to get the attention of the listeners during commercials. Even though the FCC is very rigid and severe on penalties, the marketeers pushed their "engineers" to also limit the bandwidth, so by doing so they make it sound much louder than it really is. We have a main server here at my home office in Florida that I could swear that Embarq.com is at least 20 db louder on their little screen for the news. How do you fight it? (1) You ignore it; (2) You turn it off on commercials; (3) You smash it (4) You turn it down on commercials; (4) You curse at the station manager and hope that God will strike him. (5) I suggest a remote volume control or the people you buy pants from, will become filthy rich. Any other comments in the beautiful world of American Entertainement?

I have a akai gx f91 cassette deck just wonderd how much it worth


I have a counterpoint to the above statement. BarryMusic is correct that the AVERAGE cassette deck is worth about $20 bucks. You know, those piano keyed wow and flutter hiss monsters made from plastic Tupperware bins. However, the AKAI GX-F91 was at the pinnacle of cassette deck technology, just predating the release of CD. While never quite reaching the cult status of the Nakamichi Dragon or a few Studer Revox units, a drab one will easily fetch $200-$400 dollars as a PARTS MACHINE. A fully restored GX-F91 in the right market (Japan, Europe, the Middle East) can go NORTH of $1000. An all time high I saw was $1717 for a cherry machine. http://www.audio-extasa.eu/akai-gxf91-cassette-deck-p-648.html

I have a Roland HP2e digital piano and one of the keys has lost its touch sensitivity. It works initially but when it passes a certain threshold of loudness when played it goes to full volume on that key...


Just managed to fix key loudness problem on my sister's HP-2E after talking to the local Roland Service Center. Basically I had to remove all the rubbery strips under the keyboard, clean them and clean all the contacts on the keyboard PCBs with CO contact cleaner. Not a trivial procedure - 80 or so screws to remove and replace and a lot of parts.
It has completely solved the problem (apparently its not unusual on any keyboards). I have posted more details and a couple of pictures on my blog (http://web.me.com/iain_sommerville/Home/IainBlog/Entries/2009/4/20_Piano_Repair_2nd_Attempt.html not sure if that is a permalink - if it doesn't work go to http://sommerville.info and search for HP-2e).
A roland service center can fix this as well however it is pretty time consuming so they will charge you. They can also sell you replacement keyboard contact strips if cleaning them doesn't work. Hope this helps

Clavinova electric piano keys easily stuck and slow to raise on it's own after pressing a note. How can I fix it myself? Thanks, Marcel


by any chane a liquid has spilled over your keyboard? it's kinda hard to dismantle that keyboard. but it can be done. i wonder only how it could get sticky as you described. i am from yamaha service before and i have seen the mechanicsm of clavinova, it should not go like that except if you had spilled something on it.

The keys on my CPL130 piano are intermittently failing to sound the c's and f sharps. All the other notes appear to be OK. what could be the problem and what might be the remedy. Have had the piano for...


well..that is caused by one of three things

a. the sound board(really a digital one) could have some glitches on those keys.

b. the tone recognition firmware, which looks for particular 'keys' may need to be revised and updated

c. is it the case that all 'C' and F# are bad, then it's most likely digital and not mechanical..

please confirm actual failure mode..
