Fixing Sticky Rubber Pads
by: Anonymous

The Windex _with Ammonia_ worked great. I turned the keyboard upside down, so it would not slime any more carpet. Then I took a _roll_ of paper towels (you will need it), used a pen knife to cut the old messy pad out (cut a hole in a piece of paper towel and put it around each pad (there are 5) and sliced as much as I could, wiping the blade off on the paper towel as I went along. Probably 6 - 8 times. Then removed the towel. Took a half-towel, tore it into thirds, folded each, sprayed with the Windex/Ammonia and tough to the pad. This took maybe 3 whole towels. You can get a sheet of new non-rubber pads at Target or wherever.

On the carpet the magic is to spray the carpet with the Windex/Ammonia. Then with a dry paper towel (folded 1/3 of 1/2 as before) "blot" the carpet (DO NOT RUB, it makes the carpet absorb the black rubber). Be PATIENT (ignore the elbow grease below - needed only if you rub instead of blotting). Watch the black s**t pull up into the paper towel. When you get no more, spray some Windex and repeat until the towel is white.

You may need to repeat the spray and blot several times. Be sure to place the black, messy paper towel pieces on something that will not absorb the black rubber. Remember, if you have a whole roll of paper towels, it will last a long time!

Again, be PATIENT. This may take a half to one hour to completely rid the carpet and keyboard of the POS rubber pads. And, the black junk comes off your fingers like magic with the same Windex/Ammonia on a clean piece of paper towel. I thin the Ammonia is the secret, as most of the other solution is water. Much better than the nasty solvents I was considering, so I appreciate what the other poster put.

BTW, IMHO, I think the idiot that specified those disintegrating fake-rubber feet ought to be put on a mop and made to swab the decks on a sinking ship. It's an insult to Yamaha and a terrible disservice to us loyal customers.

Again, thanks to the other posters!

pads for keyboard
by: Anonymous

We had the same tarry mess, so dug it out with a screwdriver, cleaned with alcohol and then put the little pads that you put on kitchen doors to keep them from damaging the wood when slammed. Bravo.

Thank you for Oxy-Clean idea!
by: Katie

I had put the keyboard down on my carpet and thought the rug was ruined. Other solvents did nothing, but Oxy-clean worked like magic. Thank you!

"Melted" rubber foot pads clean-up
by: Cindy

Thank you, thank you to "anonymous" who posted about OxyClean! The tarry mess left by the rubber foot pads that melted or degraded (or whatever)on my grey carpet has been cleaned up with OxyClean and a lot of elbow grease. I thought it was hopeless, but my carpet looks almost as good as new.

Rubber foot pads--nasty!
by: Cindy

Just like previous posters, ("What a ooey-gooey mess! I imagine thousands now have the same problem. (mine's a PSR-190)The big problem is the goo sticking to whatever it touches") the little rubber footpads on my Yamaha PSR keyboard left tarry spots on my BRAND NEW light grey carpet. I feel sick. I can't afford to replace it. I will try the OxyClean solution and hope it helps.

Yamaha PSR510 - Sticky key needs fix
by: Menino

I have a yamaha psr510, still going great for the last 18 yrs, lately the D1 Octave white key is sticky and when depressed the sound continues. Have opened the keyboard, and I am having a hard time to figure out how to disassemble the keys from its slots ? I can see thru the gaps that the rubber felt is cut for this key therefore when depressed it gets stuck? these white keys come as a set of 3s, so have to remove them 3 at a time. but I can't figure it out how to remove them? any one at yamaha with suggestion on how to fix this ? any ideas would highly be appreciated. Also where could I purchase the rubber pads? I'm in toronto.

PROBLEM SOLVED!
by: Anonymous

I'm the one that reported the comment here on March 26, 2011. After this Steve D. at Yamaha PAC Support contacted us and suggested we try Oxy-Clean. Here are his directions:

Using the powdered type, I made a this paste. I rubbed it in the the area for about a minute, then let it sit for 15-20 minutes.

This worked PERFECTLY for us and got all the black stain out. Steve D. and Yamaha get high marks from me. The carpet looks great and Yamaha comes out on top. Try it.

Yes, a melted mess!
by: muse

What a ooey-gooey mess! I imagine thousands now have the same problem. (mine's a PSR-190)
The big problem is the goo sticking to whatever it touches
I didn't even replace the footpads. I just cleaned off what I could and put wide tape over all four messy footpads (and a small fifth one near the center bottom), covering up the mess. Don't use black electrical tape, it also gets gooey over the years, especially when warm.

beware of this product- the melting pads are a real probem
by: Anonymous

My rubber pads also melted. By the time we noticed, it ruined our carpet with black marks that don't seem to come out. Has anyone been successful in cleaning it? Also, will Yamaha pay for the carpet repair?

Melting Rubber Pad Yamaha PSR 185
by: Tom

I have a Yamaha PSR 185 key board and latey, I find out the the Rubber Pad on the key board bottom are melting. I take me a while to find out it is melting since the sticky melt rubber spread over the living room when my hands contact the keyborad bottom. I try to remove the Rubber pad but they are so sticky and almost not possible to clean it up. I am wondering how to clean up (remvoe completely) the rubber pad before I replace them with new ones.
