I have a new yamaha prss900 keyboard and have a problem with the "A" key on the rhythm section. There is an intermittant fault with the key, sometimes it gets loud and other times it fades. Anyone any ideas ?

My DGX-220 also has an intermittent key problem.Sometimes a key will sound at full volume when only touched lightly. (The DGX-220 is touch sensitive).
When I first encountered this problem I managed to solve it by undoing the lid and removing the rubber strips containing the contacts for each key. I then cleaned the contacts as well as the circuit board area that they connect with using Isopropyl Alcohol on a cotton bud then wiping dry.This was successful on that occasion but yesterday when I attempted the same procedure it fixed the affected keys but two new keys displayed the same old problem. GRRRR !
I have a gig this afternoon and another tomorrow night which makes it very frustrating.

p70 faulty keys
by: Anonymous

I have a similar problem with my Yammaha P70 which is around 2 to 3 years old, but recently the E note is not working (all the of the E notes across all octaves). Is this easy to have repaired or repair myself?
