How to dismantle a yamaha clp 105 piano for refitting of new felts.


The short answer is you remove every screw. I don't mean to make it an intimidating task, it is not, it is just very time consuming because of the extent that you will be dismantling it. You will be thinking by the time you are done you will have removed them all.

Also do the work in a well lit area, take reference photos as you move along so you know how it goes to gether when the time comes. If it looks like a wire assembly might be confused for another, use an indellible marker to put dots on a wire and it's destination to keep them straight.

Keep pets away from the open unit or parts of it.

The keyboard is generally attached to the bottom of the cabinet. You need to locate and remove all of the screws for the upper cabinet that hold it to the lower section first. Once that upper portion has been lifted clear, you can see the screws to remove the other pieces you need to remove or move out of the way to get at the keys,

Don't force anything, anything that looks like it should come apart will, it may just have some hidden clips that need to be moved aside to release it first. A small flat screwdriver will usually suffice,

I own a Yamaha YPT-220 portable keyboard. The "c", "b" and "f" keys (all octaves) just stopped producing a sound. Anyone else have this problem?\r\n The dealer's service...


That's the thing with today's electronic and why warranty length is so important. Where did you buy your keyboard? It's strange that they won't fix it if it's still under warranty. My Casio CTK-2100 came with 1 year free service and they fix one key that stopped function in few days. I'm pretty sure Yamaha has the same warranty length. You sometimes have to be very persistent with them though...

How can I transfer a 06PK61.bup file to a Yamaha YPT400 keyboard?


The BUP files are yamaha's proprietary back up file format.
Having the appropriate drivers installed, once you make the usb connection from computer to keyboard (yamaha), you should now be able to navigate the Yamaha's files as if it were a drive on your computer. I recommend placing the file in a directory with similar files.
Make a backup beforehand to avoid and problems.

The keys are broken and some at no sound can I order the notes and sound kit. Yamaha PSR-295 . Regards Elias


Hi, i think you can. You can go to any of the Yamaha companies around you area and explain to them the problem of the keyboard. They will give you good and quality replacement part for your Keyboard.

Make sure you go to only Yamaha company to avoid getting a wrong part for your Keyboard.Avoid road siderepairsforissue like this,it's more complicated to handle

I guess that will do.

Thanks for using fixya...

I have a Yamaha PSR-170 that has a jammed key


Most keyboards of that scale are not especially fragile. You may have to remove the back (lots of screws) and maybe a bezel that is across the top of the keys to get full access to the keys. The good thing is you have lots of working models --- all the other keys. So carefully consider the differences. It may be that one or more plastic parts have broken, particularly if it fell and landed with pressure on that key.

Most of the keyboard manufacturers have parts departments that can supply just the part of the keyboard you need if you can specify exactly what you want.

I have a Casio LK43 and a key broke off. Once I have the new park how do I disasemble/reassemble to replace key.


On many of these instruments, several keys are on one assembly. They are attached by screws near the top of the keys. You may have to disassemble the case and remove the strip that is just above the tops of the keys in order to see these screws. That strip may be attached by quite a few screws itself.

On these lighted keyboards, sometimes you have to hold the key at certain angles in order to get it into place, but be gentle. If necessary, loosen another key to see how it fits. Don't force anything or you may break an LED or some plastic piece associated with the keyboard. However, if you are gentle and patient, this should not be a difficult job.

Yamaha PSR 510 -- one of the white keys broke out. Need HELP!


I figured it out. Once the whole 61-key section is unscrewed (I believe its just one screw at the end and it simply lifts off) you have to take a flat head screwdriver and stick it in the top edge of the key rows and twist to force the little tabs out of the slots. Be careful because this is not easy and some of the little tabs might break off - it may not be crucial for the keys to snap back in, though. The first few black keys and the tab above are all one solid piece of plastic. All of the keys are grouped in groups of 3-5 or so as one piece. White keys are layered under the black keys so you must release black key groups to access the white key groups. Once you have forced a key group lose from its snap attachment you must also free the keys from underneath to fully lift the keys off the unit. You have to BREAK the hook shapes found on the underside of the keys (they rest up against the orange rubber lining.) Take wire cutters and snap off all the tips in the key group you wish to remove. Depress a key and watch the movement underneath if you have trouble seeing what I'm talking about - you will see the hooks - think of it as the bottom of the key because that is what it is. The piece you break off should be very small - just enough to remove the hook shape enabling you to lift the keys right out. This will not cause the keyboard to be unusable. It will only make it possible to bend the key up once everything is reassembled. It is the only way I see to free the keys and gain access to the action underneath. As for that...

The action underneath is made up of a pair of rubber cups that when pushed make contact with metal sensors. These rubber cups can tear causing them to fail to pop back up to rest position. I am trying crazy glue to see if this will repair the tear. If not then I will try double-sided tape so that the plastic key will pull the rubber cup back up with it (I hope) when released. Good luck. It is a great keyboard. Very sad to see it discontinued.

This is regarding the Yamaha PSR-510.

How doI open a Yamaha P120 to fix sticky keys?


I've had the very same problem twice so far. The only solution I figured is to simpy purchase an equivalent key (contact Yamaha service in your country for this) and to replace the broken one. The reason why the key doesn't work smoothly as the other one is not dirt therefore any cleaning won't help. The key is cracked deep in the place where it's attached to its 'axis'. So you'll need to remove all the screws and unmount the cover (it needs a sideshift to open once the screws are removed), be careful with the speaker wires. However you'll need firm moves anyway. Opening is tricky and gets me surprised anytime I do it so you'll need some courage :). Replacing the key is even more tricky. You'll have to remove the broken one by pulling it horizontaly (use some force, it's broken anyway). Placing a new key you'll need to uplift the 'hammer' and then slide a new one. I'm sure you'll figure it out once you see it with your own eyes (it's really hard to decribe but not so hard to do it). Hope you'll do fine. I haven't tried glueing the crack for I doubt it would work for long. Good luck!
