Open the unit CAREFULLY to avoid damaging cables between top and bottom. Inspect the defective keys. It may either be a broken part on the key OR the silicone rubber key contact carriers that can act as springs. Get repair parts from Yamaha America in California. Find number online and call the "parts department"

Yamaha dxg 500: some times have to press piano key multiple times to get sound. It's not always the same keys that work that way.


Yamaha's have little rubber "contact strips" that run under the keys. These strips have little rubber buttons on them, exactly like your tv remote. When you push the key down, it pushed the rubber button down and make an electrical contact. These buttons eventually fail and separate where the bottom of the button meets the strip. You have to replace the strip (different sizes, depending on where on the keyboard it is) but they aren't cheap. You can find them here http://syntaur.com/yamaha_psr.html but sometimes you can find someone selling them on ebay cheaper. If you only need a single strip, or maybe two, it's probabaly worth it. More strips than that and you may find it cheaper to buy someone's broken keyboard on ebay and take the strips out, especially if it's broken for a different reason, like won't power up.

I have a Casio cdp 100 keyboard and two of the keys are stuck in the down position. Almost like the spring has gone in these 2 keys. Can this be fixed and if so, how?


is it under warranty ?
if not
you may have to contact your point of sale to find their local repairer

if you cant un stick them yourself that keyboard will have to be taken apart

are the two keys ... white keys or black ...nearby or way apart
do the two keys drop loose..and lift up
or stay down
example will vacuum cleaner suction help lift the stuck keys or not

sales blurp says this
A spring-less hammer system

Press the FUNCTION button till "Local Control" appears and then select it "On".

It appears this may take quite a bunch of presses to get down to the Local Control option.

Refer to your manual around pages 56 and 57 to see the list you step through. Local Control is about 2/3 the way down page 57.

Refer to 59 for the simple instruction toe set Local Control on or off.

I need this circut board for my Yamaha dx7 IIFd the part number is NA109720. It is called aftertouch circuit board


If you have a board that is bad, repair the board as piece parts of older synths are hard to find. The question is what is wrong with the board? If it is the pressure sensitive part and is not cracked it MIGHT be repairable.

Pushed to many buttons on my dx7 synthesizer and i need a master reset or something like that


Try powering up the synth, then press and hold the EDIT, 16, & 32 keys (so you end up with all three buttons pressed). I think this will reset it.

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!
