Keys won't work.....solution
by: Anonymous

I have a psr 520 and had it stored away for some time and when I tried to play it the same thing happened. I don't know how mechanical you are but I opened the unit and the key contacts can be unclipped from the keys after you open the unit.
( no screws) When I carefully turned the green board over I wiped it down with some phillips dvd cleaning fluid and a white cd cloth and clipped it back in and it plays fine now. Hope this helps....

It sounds like dust or another foreign object under the keys. Try with an airspray to blow it away.
Maybe you do, but a good practice is to cover your keyboard when not in use with a dustcover.
Hope this solves the problem.
