I need to set up a sustaining pedal.

by HGillespie

I have the pedal plugged in to FS 1 but it doesn't work. If I plug it into FS 2 it works and doesn't let up. My goal is to make this keyboard work just like a regular piano.

Dear H. Gillespie: I'm sorry. I meant to ask what Yamaha keyboard do you use? I realize FS 1 is just the socket for the pedal. Giving us the model should help other members come up with additional suggestions. Keep well.

Sustain Pedal FS

Dear H Gillespie: You probably are experiencing Reverse Polarity with the Pedal. The pedal MAY have a built-in switch on its housing. Flipping the switch may solve the problem. If there is no switch, try 1) Plugging in the pedal before turning on your unit. Do not press on it, then 2) Turn on your unit. Hope this helps. Thanks for contacting us, and keep well.
