Yamaha PSR-330 Some keys won't play

by Mike

My father-in-law lent me a Yamaha PSR-330 keyboard to play around with to help me decide on a prospective purchase. I play guitar reasonably well but have often thought I could get more enjoyment from a keyboard. My problem is, some of the keys have suddenly stopped sounding - namely A3#, D4, B4, D5# and B5. Is it something I have done? I don't have a manual, just a quick start card. If its broken, does anyone know which parts to change and where to get the parts etc?

I will never be able to live this down if I have to return it in the state it is! Sorry I have nothing else to contribute at this time but sincerely hope I will in the future.

Thanks for the info. I have been to both sites. You'r right its a good article and I'm going to give it a go. I will strip the unit down first and have a look. The manual from PSRtutorials is certainly comprehensive, all 90 pages!
Will let you know how it goes with the repairs.

Best regards,

contact pads??

Hi Mike,

It sounds like a broken or dirty underlay-contact-pad. I am guessing of course. Not your fault, it can happen with any keyboard.
If you go to: PSRTUTORIAL.COM - look under PSR3000 There is a good article about what the problem is and how it can be solved. Yes it is a different model but most keyboards are inside more or less the same.

If you want to get a manual go to:

You can download one from there in PDF-format.
