Probably the best thing to do is call the Yamaha service center nearest you. I live in the Los Angeles area, and the Yamaha service center closest to me is in Buena Park. I called them on the phone and told them what the problem was, and they knew immediately what parts were needed and they shipped them out that same day.
The contacts that seem to wear out the fastest are the ones near the middle of the keyboard. On my CLP-170, it's the keys between middle C and the G above that -- probably no more then 4 or 5 keys. However, I ordered replacement contacts for all 88 keys because once you take the piano apart to replace the contacts, you may as well replace all of them.
Good luck, Howard

There are 17 screws on the underside of the keyboard that need to be removed. The base cover can then be removed. This gives access to the keyframe assembly which can be removed.

1) Clean the circuit board contacts under the keys (where the strip hits). Use wd-40 first (for possible rust), then soap and water (for sugars--don't soak the thing though), then follow up with rubbing alcohol (to remove moisture)
2) Replace the rubber strip. (You will need to order this part from a Yamaha dealer). I tried cleaning this, and was able to get every key working again (by themselves), but it the strip wears down and you will get random notes when you play CHORDS. Ended up having to replace it. Now its 100% working.
