A sudden ff-note whilst playing soft (Yamaha Clavinova)
by Daniel Olmarker
I have a problem with my CLP 575B.
For the last 6 months a problem occure, when I turn the piano on and start to play. 3 or 4 notes (the middle f, f sharp, the d right under and occasionally one or two other notes) are sometimes giving the strongest possible sound back whilst I play soft. This occurs not always but all of a sudden on a few keys. In the beginning it is about 1 time out of 10 but after a few minutes of playing it´s better and just appears occasionally. You can play the key (the middle f) 29 times and the sound is the right but then, the 30th time it will be maximum sound - fff - no matter how soft or hard you are playing.
This is, of course, terribly disturbing and not fun at all. Nor is it ok. If you, for example, are playing "Clair de lune" and suddenly a note goes fff, with no prediction at all, it´s all ruined.
I´ve tried to day to make factory restart, but it didn´t help.
Does anybody experienced the same problem?
