First thing is to check the connector is fully seated... sometimes most of the contacts make but one might not. Beyond that, contacts in the pedal are next suspect.

How can I repair my sustain pedal?


Odds are it needs replacing or a technician. Contact a local music store that sells Yamaha pianos or call Yamaha at 714-522-9000.

I Have a Casio Privia Digital Piano and a Roland DP-10 pedal. The pedal function is inverted. When I press it stops the sustain and the effect comes back when I release the pedal. The pedal does not have...


Yep... Roland pedals are reversed, that is, normally closed contacts. Unlike some Yamaha keyboards, the Casio doesn't have an inversion function available. You have two choices to solve this: 1. Buy a pedal with the corect sense 2. Open the Roland pedal and MAYBE with a soldering iron you can move a wire to select a contact with the opposite sense.

The damper pedal of my Roland digital piano is not functioning well. When I reset the adjuster as advised in the Manual, it works for a few hours, then stops working.


Find out if the adjuster is changing by itself. Put some tape on it to mark the position and check when it appearss to be out of adjustment. If it is unscrewing, you can get a Loctite product to seal the threads.

My pedal is not sustaining - it is plugged in at the pedal outlet, not sure what else to look for?


The first question is has it ever worked? If this is new, the connector of the pedals is a mini DIN type which is REAL hard to get seated properly. Often something blocks it from seating fully. Remove the plug and with a bright light inspect the pins... they are EASILY broken off. Aligning the connector carefully and making sure it seats is important. This piano also has a foot under the pedals to screw down against the floor but that isn't wht cause the pedals to not work.

Switch on e50 and sustain pedal not holding notes


I assume you are plugging this into a ROLAND brand product as the Roland sustain uses a normally CLOSED contact while MOST other brands use NORMALLY OPEN contacts.

The Roland synths now monitor the pedal as the power is turned on and supposedly decides which contact type is used.

Remember that for MANY voices, such as piano, notes are held longer BUT they do not continue indefinitely just like the sustain on a real piano works. On a real piano the dampers are lifted, but the strings eventually stop ringing due to the losses of energy in the strings.

Some voices will be held,such as organ tones.

I don't have enough information from your post regarding what voice you are having trouble with.

Our Yamaha YDP223 has an issue with the damper pedal. When it is depressed, the notes (F#, G) in the upper ranges make a high pitched, annoying sound as the note dies away. We were dealing with this sound...


All sound is generated digitally and the pedal doesn't modify the sound, it just sustains the generator. This is a strange problem and best suggestion iis to find another unit and compare... it may be a characteristic of the design. There isn't anything that you can do to change this. It could be there is a bad ground inside the unit or the digital data is corrupt in the processor. The fact that it is on a particular set of notes is strange...I just checked on my Yamaha piano that is essentially the same electronics and I notice that on one octave above the middle when one strikes F# and G they "ring out". Now this MIGHT be due to the characteristics of the speakers. Those particular notes seem to clash more. I don't have other speakers on mine and unfortunately you did not mention what brand model you have attached. Consumer grade speakers like fancy stereo speakers do NOT do well on these instruments. One has touse pro grade speakers AND use proper interconnecting cables. The speakers, powered type, must be powered from the SAME receptacle as the piano to avoid ground loops.

There is a tinny unpleasant sustain in the high notes with or without pedal. Is there an adjustment to mellow this sort of ringing (the keyboard is set all the way to "mellow") we tried...


Some of the Yamaha pianos have several pianos emulated and selecting a "Grand" will sound different than if you select an "Electric" or "***** Tonk" setting.

There is NO internal adjustment for this. other than the voice selection. Choose either the Grand1 or Grand2. Do not use reverb as this can "ring".

Hi, i purchased yamaha fc15 sustain pedal yesterday. when i connected this pedal to my Roland E-09 keyboard through foot switch port, it activate Start/Stop button ( of arranger & song controls ) and...


The answer is NO... Roland uses the opposite sense switches on foot pedals... They use NIRMALLY CLOSED and your Yamaha is a NORMALLY OPEN switch.

SOMETIMES you can open these pedals and find that the pedal has the opposite sense switch available and you only have to unsolder and move one wire to make it a NORMALLY CLOSED pedal.

The pedal of our Yamaha YDP223 digital piano is not working .


Check the connector underneath the pedals hasn't become dislodged and of course the one that plugs in underneath. Grvity works to unplug these.

Check the contacts of the pedal switches.

you say pedal... which one? Damper, Sostenuto, or Soft or all of them not working?
