On page 105 of your X5D manual, read up about "transpose". Setting the transpose shifts the notes plus or minus from the normal.

If you don't have a manual, you can download one for free.

C key is sunken down. The hammer action counterbalance isn't working properly


Check it again. It may have something dragging on the key, maybe something sticky like soda or juice residue. You can also try swapping out the key with another C or F key that is less used. Good luck!

How do I fix a stuck piano key on a upright home piano


You'll likely need to try removing the keys, so you can see if something is stuck underneath it. That would be my first move.
In order to do this, follow these steps:

The front panel and the keyboard fall are designed to be easily removed for tuning purposes anyway.

To check it out....The front panel likely has a little clip either side near the top on the inside. Just undo these clips and lift the panel out. The keyboard fall should then be easy to lift out too.

There may be a long wooden rail which you need to take out also. Once inside, the keys themselves can be carefully lifted off the central spikes on which they sit.

Remember how you did this so you can get them back in again.

Since your piano is so old and worn, Often times, the wooden rail in front of the keys (just above your knees when you are playing) bows inwards a little due to age and temperature/humidity fluctuations. This then causes the little white front bit of the keys to jam against the wood and you have to physically lift the keys back up to return them.
If this is the problem you will need to take out the keys and shave some wood off the inside of this rail to allow the keys to move up and down freely again.
Or sometimes you may find you have a small object caught under a key or two. Much simpler to remove and free up your keys, if this is your problem..
Hopefully, this is all you will find wrong with your piano.
If all else fails...
I wouldn't attempt to tune your piano by yourself. I would seek out an experienced piano tuner for that.
But it is worth attempting to repair it first before you go that far.
Good luck !!

Casio privia px350. My dp started to have mechanical stronger noises when pressing down the keys affected seem wobbly and seem to hit something as if moving sideways slightly. Only tapping the key...


The Previa key construction was a lot better than yamaha\'s, however it still suffered the normal casualties caused by even the slightest \'knock\'. Believe it or not, most damages are caused to DPs when you\'re NOT playing it. For example, transporting - setting up - packing down etc. I used to market Roland and Casio DPs for a number of years. And the most common problem was the \'stuck key\' syndrome (as well as dust on the contacts). I bought it down to the way people, children, adults actually SIT down to the piano to play. Instead of using the piano stool to balance themselves, many people place their hands on the KEYBOARD before they plant !!! NO NO NO :/ That is the prime reason there are key breakages in - pretty much the same place. Children are a classic example when they sit at a piano. They use the keyboard to leverage themselves UP. Because the DP is not on, it doesn\'t make a sound - therefore "it can\'t POSSIBLY my child\'s fault!!" Oh yeah...have your darling angel sit at an acoustic piano and they\'ll be playing 12th Street Rag before they even get their on the seat!!!



Long and short, possibly broken band, slipped hammer - or broken. Here\'s a video which explains how you might be able to fix the problem yourself. Not much to it really...just take your time and don\'t force anything

Enter button not working


If this is a traditional keyboard (not laptop) or extremely fancy keyboard.

Try unplugging the keyboard. Then.
  1. Take a butter knife and slide it into the crevice next to the "enter key".
  2. Apply a small amount of pressure to pry the key upward.
  3. With little effort the key should pop off or slide off.
  4. Check the spot the key was for dirt, dust, food, etc. Clean it if you must. Make sure the actual key does not have anything stuck to the bottom of it.
  5. Push the key back onto it's place on the keyboard.
  6. Plug back in and see if that worked.
If this did not work, you may need to replace the keyboard OR you may want to make sure no viruses are playing an aweful trick on you.

Hello, one of the keys has come loose in courier transit and i cannot seem to fix it back


To repair a key that has come loose from the pivot, on MUST open the keyboard to get at the mechanism of the leyboard itself. Usually a spring has been displaced or, worse case, a piece of the key pivot is broken off. Be real careful of the ribbon cable tying the two halves of the shell together. Keep track of the screws, type and length to restore them to the proper places.

How hard is it to repair a sticking key on the keyboard. I have a new Yamaha MM6 and it's going to cost me all kinds of shipping charges to exchange it. Was wondering if it would be worth it to just...


It kinda depends on if a hammer is broke or key is broke. Or if a foreign object is stuck in there. Typically not hard if you can remove screws and remember how they go back in. TypicAlly the bottom panel comes off keyboards ( start by removing those screws ) or the top case will fold up ( still bottom of keyboard screws ) then multiple screws to realease keyboard assembly. May have to disconnect some wires/ ribbon cables so have a sharpie ready to label to ensure correct reassembly. Then it's all about if they have separate keys or a keytree or sometimes just removing ba key and reseating fixes sticking problems. Get yourself a can of blow off or contact cleaner just in case. Not sure who locally to you sell parts but you can always call manufacturer and ask who does their distribution for parts.

My keyboard sounds off when I turn it on, but it does not make any sound when I hit the keys. Possibly it was damaged when the cat jumped on it.


I suspect that a NOTE or other selection button is "stuck", if not physically, then electrically.

the startup of most of these devices scans the keyboard and control panel to insure all user inputs from them are at rest. When it sees one stuck, then sometimes the system hangs.

I have a CDP-100 and need disassembly instructions for access to internal keyboard assembly. Unit was dropped while unloading from car. Now some keys are akimbo and won't play as though they are off their...


I just fixed my CDP 100 which had a similar problem - dropped and two keys not working up one end.
1. Lay keyboard upside down on soft surface. Under keyboard is plastic cover held on by 17 screws. Remove all these and lift cover away. The metal key ends are all revealed.
2. Locate the disloged keys. Carefully press them back into position - they will "click" into place. Make sure the corresponding key on the keyboard isn't stuck in an "up" position - you may have to remove the metal key part and replace it again while making sure the key is correctly seated.
3. Replace cover and screws.

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.
