Is there a way to replace the settings key pads?


These pads can be replaced ( providing Casio still have spare parts ) There are a lot of screws to undo to get inside the keyboard, then remove any PCB above the pad, replace and reassemble.

or

Contact your nearest Casio service centre

Hello! I have the Kurzweil Mark Pro TWOi piano. Suddenly some keys make strange sounds through the speakers, like distrortion or noise. The speakers seem to be fine, because the demo songs play perfectly....


Try to re-initialize the unit(factory reset). If the keys are the problem then the rubber key contacts need to be cleaned or replaced. Contact a local service center for help.

Why are some keys on keyboard are not playing


It's most likely to be dirty key contacts.
The contacts are conductive pads. They get "crud" on them over time, which then just needs to be cleaned in a certain manner.
Best to clean all the pads over the entire keyboard. It's not difficult for someone with experience, but it's not a job for a novice.
My guess is that the keys are toward the center of the keyboard.

I have a Casio digital piano and some keys stopped working after my daughter finished "cleaning" the piano. I'm thinking maybe a fuse needs to be replaced?? Some keys plays and some do not. Any


Old reply so hopefully it's fixed. Dust or hair can get through the gaps and land on or near the contacts of the electronic key sensors. To be on the safe side (rather than doing a diy) take it in to the technicians. They'll have it fixed in a jiffy

Keys on yamaha digital piano are sounding more than one note at a time how can i fix this?


The keypads can develop dirt , failure of pads which can result in such malfunctioning. If you are able to open the piano then carefully remove the keypads , clean the surface and reset.
this must solve the issue unless the pads/springs/mechanism are having fault.

I try to fix my Yamaha Electone Model DK-400.the key #Fa din't works. also change to the Piano .No Work at all., Would you kindly tell me how to get repair, I don't get the schematic.Where can order one ?...


Hi,
You can get the schematic model from your vendor. The model is not available on the internet. See if the electone si still in warranty. If it is call the service centre and get it repaired. I would suggest contacting your country's Yamaha subsidiary or wholesale distributor who may have one in their spare parts department

My Tyros 2 plays additional notes when I play chords particularly in C, G and E-Flat scales. The challenge is that I am living in the Caribbean and there are nor official keyboard technicians nearby. I can...


This is not something that spare parts would likely be needed for.

The first thing to determine is if in the piano mode that the unit first comes up in do you get this problem. If you do not, the UNIT is likely OK electronically. If you DO get the problem as a plain piano at start up, then one or more disconnect diodes (small 1N4148) are probably shorted. This is VERY uncommon occurence. These diodes are on the contact boards of the keys themselves. Contamination of metal such as a paper clip or metal shard could cause the same thing.

The Tyros II has MANY features and a lot of these create layers that fire other notes when using styles as part of the stylle rhythm.

The keyboard split features that allow the keyboard to act as three seperate ones can lead one to think there is a problem.

I have two Tyros I and one Tyros II and have worked on all of them as they were purchased as damaged and non-functioning. I have schematics on CD and those are available from Yamaha America parts dept in California. They are copyrighted but they will sell you the CD with schematics, etc. for about $15.

I can help you troubleshoot the problem if it really is a problem. The first thing is to see if problem exists in the piano mode at startup. If it does, then try each note in combination to establish a pattern. If a disconnect diode is shorted, you will find certain notes interact. You need to find which are OK and which causes problems... Defining the keys as problems in chords does not help as we need key numbers such as C3 or F#4. Do the searches ONLY using two keys at a time as a matrix problem cannot be diagnosed doing three at a time or more.

It's a Roland HP-7e digital piano about three years old.


You may need to clean the contacts which are usually conductive rubber. I explained stuff for another Roland problem with two keys that were intermittent. I have an EP-7 that I had to do the cleaning of the key contacts. Use 91 or 99 % Isoprophyl alcohol to clean BOTH the conductive "pill" (Black under silicone rubber domes) AND the traces on the board where they press. Clean gently as the traces have a hard black coating.

I have a Technics digital piano with 1 dead key. The piano is about 10 years old and in great shape. The key stopped working after my toddler started banging on the keyboard. Is this fixable?


If your piano is the same as mine, there is a rubber membrane with contacts imbedded in it that sits on top of a circuit board. The key pushes the contact in the membrane onto the contact causing a note on. What happens is the cylindrical part of the membrane that holds the contact can get torn and the contact will no longer travel in a straight line to trigger the note. The entire membrane strip has to be replaced. The strip on my piano was discontinued and I had to manufacture one from an extra Roland membrane that had some bad contacts in it. You will have to contact Technicsat www2.panasonic.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/PNAEndecaSearchCmd for support. If you don't feel comfortable tackling the repair yourself consult a good piano tuner/repair place in your area for advice.

Roland 3000 Digital Piano 88-Key Full-size weighted keyboard


It's not really for the faint of heart, but generally this is caused by gunk getting into the key circutry. Underlying the 3000's keyboard is a silicone pad with 2 contacts on it, the measurement between each being hit is the issue usually but yours just sounds like there's something in there causing a physical or contact obstruction.

What you really want to do is to remove the keys and clean everything but this isn't easy... You could try using 99% alcohol (from a pharmacy) to clean inside it which may well help you.

There's a good thread on a similar issue at:

http://www.electronicspoint.com/roland-hp-3000s-digital-piano-dodgy-note-t18946.html

Which may help you work out how to do the disassembly if you are brave, but I would start with pouring some alcohol in and poking it and hoping for the best 1st. It sounds crude, but it works amazingly well with some things.
