Question about Yamaha Portable Keyboard

Open Question

I have a Yamaha DSR-2000 keyboard (circa 1987) plays great but need to replace a couple of broken keys. Got the keys from Yamaha and attempted to replace but there is something funky about the spring-action. Can't figure it out. The keys are kind of limp without the normal bounce. There is a metal spring clip of some sort under the key which must have something to do with it but can't figure out how it applies the pressure. Thanks!

SOURCE: keys not sounding as loud as others

Hi, BHOWDY.
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

SOURCE: How do I take apart Yamaha PSR-280 keyboard to clean keys.

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.

This type of keyboard is well know for the power socket breaking away from the main PCB. You will need to unscrew lots of screws to reveal the circuit board with the power socket on. If you look closely at the solder side you will probably see that the track that the socket is soldered to has broken. Simply link the solder joint to the circuit further along the track by bridging between socket and next point along the track. You may need to replace the socket if it has become damaged. If you can use a soldering iron it is fairly easy but if in doubt contact a repairer.


If you need a socket Google :

I have the same problem.The rubber panel that is used for touch sensitivity (under the keys) inside the case wears down in time. You can split it and shift parts but you eventually will have to replace it. This rubber panel is very hard to get. Good luck.

Not familiiar with the PSR 6700, HOWEVER on the Yamaha Tyros the keys stay with the baseplate part. Once the top cover is removed, there are screws holding the segments of keys. The keys on the Tyros are in segments. As I recall the black keys are in two individual sections.

There may be commonality between the synths.

The keys press on a sheet of silicon rubber domes that have conductive "pills" under them. The restoring force is actually from the dome itself. Two contacts per key! BE CAREFUL to align the silicon sheet when re-assembling.

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!
