Question about Yamaha P85 88Key Portable Digital Piano

1 Answer

Hello! I'm using a Yamaha P85 for about one and a half year. I am learning to play and often plays 2- 3 hours every day. It seems that the key mechanics successively have been worn i some way. Many of the keys cause a clattering sound especially when a key returns back. This is very disturbing and irritating on an instrument that is considered to be of very good quality. Question 1: is this to be considered normal after a certain time? Question 2: is it recommended to dismount the keyboard myself trying to analyse och exchange parts. Question 3: where can I get spare parts for this purpose? Question 4: where i Sweden can experts take care of such service and is associated with heavy costs. Thanks in advance for Your advice. Kurt A

Hi, what causes clattering sound in key boards are when the rubbers inside the key board are getting weak and it needs to be replaced.It's not a normal thing.

Secondly, The idea ofdisassemblythe keyboard is a Good idea ,but i would not advice you to do that,cause keyboard issues are very delicate and fragile to handle..

finding parts out, i will give you links to guide you.

I just experienced my p85 with a key problem on the F# below middle C. You will need to disassemble the keyboard and usually the keys are groups of 6 - 8 keys. If you remove the group that has the problem you might be able to find the problem visually. Mine just involved removing and reinserting the F# key back into the assembly. Then reinstalling the group of keys. If you can't get the key to work properly, you will probably need to buy the group assembly from Yamaha.

My P85 simply won't turn on. I have tried two different adaptors. Neither work yet they are functioning with other keys. Please help. I have a gig on Sunday


What adapters have you tried? The P85 REQUIRES a 12 VAC adapter, NOT the common DC type and it needs a 1.5 amp (1500 ma) type adapter. If you connected a DC adapter it will NOT do damage, the unit just won't work. You can find adpaters on Ebay or Google search.

Check if you MIGHT be in a "guide" or learning mode. Some Yamaha synths have a mode that will play and then wait for you to hit the right key before moving on. If this is not the problem, a fix is not DIY and will require repair. I assume you are NOT using MIDI as in that case it is called "dreaded MIDI drone" and is due to data looping back into the unit which is an external fault.

I'm using the Yamaha P-85 Digital piano. Unfortunately it has lately had some problems. When I'm playing to notes next to each other (especially e and f (mi & fa) or b flat and b (si & si...


In playing fast you have to make sure to release the note fully and let the key come up. These keys have TWO contacts that are used in the scheme to measure note velocity. If BOTH contacts don't open, the note will NOT re-fire. The second symptom you have written would be a characteristic if one of the disconnect diodes has shorted. These diodes direct the strobe signals that scan the matrix of key contacts to avoid other octaves responding when multiple keys are depressed including those in other octaves. Servicing of the unit is required. It is unlikely you have the tools to DIY this problem. ONE THING to try is to tip the unit and gently tap it to see if some debris MIGHT have fallen in that may be shorting some of the matrix connections.

I want to learn how to play my guitar. what


A good guitar teacher is a MUST !
Prices vary but around $25 per half hour seems average.

Join the school band if you are still in school.

There is a mass of learning stuff on the INTERNET and different people take to different methods so there is no fixed way to learn.

My son plugs his MP3 player into his amp as well and plays along using a
"play by ear method" He also has lessons and is in the school band.

Supportive parents are the biggest asset you can have. That support should extend into helping you find ways of earning that may suit you better than trying to read from a music book

A lot of people learn by playing TABS in which you learn basic notes quickly and pretty easily. Maybe take some different types of learning books from the library until you find one that works for you.
Hope this gives you the information you need
