NEVER use de-oxit in a volume control potentiometer !!! Use it ONLY on metal switch contacts.

De-oxit will destroy the lubrication in pots and the resistance element.

You MIGHT try CRC226 which is safe to use. It is available at Home Depot in the electrical dept. Blue can, about $2.75. Make sure it is CRC226 as there are other CRC products there which are not applicable.

The volume control may be damaged now and may need replacement. They are not expensive other than the labor to install it.

Yamaha ELectone FC-20 volume "control sliding switch" that control the volume of the upper &lower keys there are no sound only if I put some force on this "switch" Will this be very costly to repair?


Should run about $100. You can try just cleaning the slider your self first with cleaner spray sold at Radio Shack (ask the clerk which one). Be careful not to get the spray anywhere other than the slider track as it may react with other plastic parts. Spray a little then move the slide the full length a number of times,

P90 sustain sound won't stop some times when am playing


You could have-
dirty contacts on the switch inside the pedal
dirty contacts in the jack the pedal cable plugs into
a cold/loose solder joint where the cable connects to the plug or to the switch.
If you rule those all out it's an internal problem with the pedal, which you can check by using another pedal, or it's internal to the P90, which will need to go to the shop.

Check and see if there is a switch on the foot pedal. Check the P-90 menu under footswitch to make sure it is set to sustain.

Hello, I have a Yamaha P90. 4 keys are not responding. all others are ok and give sound. What happened ?


If they are the same note- different octave- it may be a bad solder joint near the main oscillator IC.

If they are the same cluster (adjacent white keys or adjacent black keys) in the octave, it may be a faulty wire connection.

Intermittent sound from the left speaker. Seems to clear up when I slide the volume switch up and down. I'd like to take it apart to clean the volume switch and look for possible loose wires.


If you have a SLIDING FADER CONTROL use CRC226 and spray a little bit right in the center of the slot using the little tube spout. Then work the control a bit and give it one more little squirt. Use sparingly. You can get the CRC226 at Home Depot in the electrical dept. in a small blue aerosol can for bout $2.70. use ONLY this product as CRC makes other products. Use CRC226

My yamaha psr 420 has most of the middle keys not producing any sound when pressed. The others too produce an abnormaly high sound when pressed. Please whats wrong and how do i solve this problem?


Your key contacts have gotten dirty. Two contacts per key are used to sense velocity and if one doesn't work the sound will be full velocity and loud.

The contacts are conductive rubber "pills" in silicone rubber domes that the key presses down onto circuit board traces under the keys. Clean both the "pills" and the black portion of the circuit board GENTLY using ONLY 99% isoprophyl alcohol and QTips. There is a lot of disassembly required and one has to keep track of where the screws go and length and thread type to re-assemble after cleaning. Also great care must be taken to not damage the ribbon cablles connecting the top and bottom halves of the case.

I get no sound from the key board the display shows the keys being pressed all functions look like they are working but no sound at all


We can only guess what keyboard you might have. Maybe it has built in speakers or requires external speakers.

Usually on the keyboards there is a headphone jack. The jack disconnects output if headphones are in. Some keyboards have mute functions. Some use rotary volume controls, some use sliders... The controls can become damaged causing problems.

We don't have ESP to know what model you have and can give no further help without the model number. Always post as much detail and tests you have run.

My Korg c15s has a lot of grating staticky noises when played ....I'm told it cannot be repaired as Korg no longer makes parts for this model?


I have a Korg C-15s and also experiencing loud crackling sounds when I turn it on. The problems seems to be either the sliding volume control or the amplifier itself. Honestly though, I believe the issue is the volume control. I opened my piano to get a closer look and attempted to clean the contacts on the volume. Unfortunately after cleaning the contacts, the crackling sounds became somewhat worse. After I turn the piano on, the volume control is generally rendered useless......volume set to low volume and the noise is quite loud and other times the volume control is set high and get very low volume crackling noise. No real consistency. The noise does diminish after a few minutes but so does the piano sounds to an inaudible level. There were a couple of instances where I turned it on and surprising enough, no no noise and perfect sound. For these reasons I believe the issue is within the volume control and not so much the amplifier. I have an electronics background and noticed that the volume control is very unique in design and is not something that can be substituted with another volume control from other sources.

My recommendation is to check the sound quality of the audio from the RCA L/R audio outs on rear of the piano by connecting to a stereo receiver. If it sounds fine you're in luck. If the crackling sound does not diminish after a few minutes like mine does, I would suggest disconnecting the internal speakers and using the audio out only. You can connect a pair of studio monitors or high quality computer speakers, preferably with a small subwoofer to deliver the full audio range and deeper tone of a real piano. I'm currently using a basic pair of Logitech computer speakers and is quite acceptable until I can afford a high quality set of monitors or relocate my piano closer to my high quality Yamaha receiver.

I hope this info helps a bit.

Baldwin Model 230 DE when turned on makes a loud thunk like the volume is turned way up, then when you disturb or shake the organ or stomp on the floor it makes a loud noise like if you twanged a coil...


If the organ has a reverb spring "tank" in it, that is likely where the spring sound comes from.

The initial noise is likely due to the initial unbalance of the power audio amp.

Lesser organs don't disconnect the speakers till the amps attain balance so the inrush pulses the speakers..

Roland keyboard. Extremely static-y speakers. Cuts out.


It sounds like your volume slider is dirty. Try carefully and judiciously spraying a good quality contact cleaner into the slider and working it. do not use a lot. It only takes a little. Also do not use WD40.
