Question about Casio LK30 Note Lighted Keyboard

Open Question

Does the Casio LK30 have sustain capability? It says phones/output in the back. Is there a way to enable a sustain pedal to work on this model keyboard?

SOURCE: Casio 1600 sustain pedal problem

Not if its like mine, its a completecircuit vs.incomplete circuit problems.

I had the exact same problem with my Casio keyboard and a Yamaha sustain pedal I bought.

I'm not an electrical genius, but I was able to get it to work by opening it up and doing a little modification. Of course I first just tried switching the white wire with the black one but that didn't change anything at all when I tried it. It turns out the Casio wants the circuit completed to sustain, and broken for no sustain, which is the opposite of what the Yamaha pedal does.

I opened it up and mine had three three flat metal strips let's call them Top, Middle and Bottom. The Middle and Bottom ones were joined together on the right side, and the Middle and Top ones were touching on the left side when the pedal was not pressed. These seperated when the pedal was pressed, thereby breaking the circuit because the wires were on the top plate and on the joined Middle/Bottom plate.

So to flip it I:
1. Unsoldered the Bottom wire
2. Cut apart the Bottom and Middle plates on the right.
3. Bent the Middle plate on the right to touch the Top plate instead and soldered those together.
4. Soldered the Bottom wire back on.

That's it! Once I figured it out, it took only a few minutes to fix.
Good luck!

If the pedal is a simple switch, and not a MIDI device, then most probably the only difference is that in one pedal the switch is wired so it is normally open, and in the other normally closed.
Modifying that would involve disassembling the pedal and looking if the switch can be rewired the opposite way.

SOURCE: Casio Keyboard CTK700 The sound does not sustain

sustain is typcially a product of the sound you have chosen, If you have a sustain pedal you can sustain any sound. you may also have some choices on the switches that allow special sustain, but I dont own a casio keyboard (I have yamaha) but they are nearly the same in operation. The easiest way to get controllable sustain is by plugging in a sustain pedal

Looking for a sustaining pedal for the Casio ctk 401 keyboard. What models will be compatible?


They are all compatible. Make sure the port on the keyboard is the same size as the plug on the pedal, usually a phono plug. Also make sure it is a sustain pedal and not an "on off " switch.

Casio Privia 410r Piano soft pedal problem


The Casio Privia 410r has two pedal jacks at the back. One is the sustain pedal, the other is the soft/sus jack. Please use the other jack if you want to use sustain pedal. Only 1 of the 2 jacks can be used.


However, if you have the optional sp30a pedal which plugs UNDER the piano instead, then only can you have 3 different piano pedals.

Ctk-651 sustain pedal working backwards


Buy sustain pedal made for CASIO or switable model.
Pedal for Yamaha or Roland will work in reverse on a Casio.
If you cannot return for exchange, then open up and solder a different type of micro switch.

Hi. I'm Using PX330 as a midi controller that plays "Galaxy pianos" in cubase 5. I'm interested in buying a continuous sustain pedal (the one I got with the piano is an On\Off pedal). can you...


The Yamaha FC-3 uses a TRS (three conductor plug). The PX330 does NOT use TRS jacks for the sustain and sostenuto pedals so they are NOT compatible with the Yamaha FC-3. Therefore I would conclude that continous sustain that the Yamaha pedal would be used for is NOT supported.

Is a sustain foot pedal similar to a tattoo machine pedal?


The sustain pedals have only two wires. Usually they terminate in a 1/4 inch mono plug.

yamaha USUALLY sustains when switch is closed. Roland usually sustains on a switch between the wires when the switch is open.

NO POWER should be supplied BY the sustain pedal... it is ONLY a switch.

Bought a sustain foot pedal and it works the opposite to what it is supposed to...have to release the pedal for the sustain effect


Yep!!! Happens all the time and only a few synths have the option of selecting the operating mode.

NOW if you can open the pedal, USUALLY the switch has both the Normally Open and Normally Closed functions that a single wire can be moved to reverse the operation.

USUALLY you will need a soldering iron to make the change.
