Product no.: STICKY KEYS

YAMAHA Clavinova CLP/CVP/P-SERIES STICKY KEY ISSUE UPDATE.

As of  1st January 2014, YAMAHA have changed their policy on supplying keyframes free of charge to resolve problems with sticking keys on a range of product that is now over 10 years old.

If you are experiencing problems with sticking/sluggish keys, I recomend replacement of the keyframe as the most cost effective way of rectifying this problem. Replacing sticky keys WILL NOT fully rectify this problem. Other keys will become sluggish soon and you will be faced with repeated service calls which will soon be in excess of the cost or replacing the keyframe with new. You may also have rattly keys. This will also be fully rectified with keyframe replacement.

Not all models are effected however!. You may just be unfortunate to have damaged a key. Send me your model number and I will give then be able to give you the best advice.

Product no.: TECHNICS PX

Distorting/no sound/burning smell.

Due to a fault that develops on the power supply, the output stage of the power amplifier can get damaged together with the speakers.

This can be rectified. However, the final cost of parts and labour may be in excess of the instruments market value.

Contact us for a free no obligation quotation. Only you can decide if it is worth the cost!

Product no.: PRX02/3

Instrument appears to function normally in that all panel lights and screen information is displayed but no sound is produced.  Sound can be heard, without distortion, through headphones.

This fault is due to a a fault on the power amplifier stage. A replacement modular amplifier can be fitted to return unit to full working order.

Product no.: RATTLE

Excessive noisy/rattly keys is an indication that the damper felt has reached the end of its useful life.

For most makes and models, this is a relativey simple process to replace the felt(s).  Typically, under normal use, felts will last around 5 years. However on some Yamaha Arius models, key rattle may become apparent before then depending on use. The damper felt is easily replace and not too an expensive job. The action of your digital piano will feel like new again. If you have this problem, complete the online Enquiry Form, remembering to give Make & Model and serial number if possible. We will then be able to email you a quotation to rectify this problem.

Alternatively simply email service@brokenchords.co.uk
