Sustain pedal on the Yamaha S08

I recently purchased a yamaha S08, but can get the sustain to work. Could I possibly be using the wrong pedal?

Sustain pedal
by: Edwin

When I plug my sustain pedal to the piano, my piano sustains without me having to press the pedal. I hit the pedal an but it doesn't do anything. Is there a configuration in the piano that I must set to have it work properly?

I did. On my sustain pedal I found a little switch that had to be turned of. That did it.

S08 Sustain Pedal

Sometimes it's a polarity issue. If one turns on the keyboard while holding your foot is holding the pedal down; this can cause the keyboard to swith polairity. The answer is to turn it off while holing the pedal down and vice versa. I do this all time to myself. Hope this helps.

volume pedal

The volume pedal on my SO8 only sustains. I have to unplug the volume pedal to silence the note. What's wrong?????

s08 foot pedal

Plug your pedal into the jack labelled "foot switch", not " foot controller" otherwise, I'd say you've got the wrong pedal.

Problem fixed

Hi, I found out. Apparently different keyboards use different sustain pedals. Therefore many never pedals can have a little switch. I solved the problem using this little switch. If your pedal don't have such a switch buy a new cheap one that does

You have to make sure the function for that jack is set to sustain. Check your manual - I remember when I got mine it wasn't set to sustain as the default.

I am having the same problem with my S08. The sustain pedal doesn't work. I have used two different pedals with the same results. Is anyone out there who has found a solution?
