Yamaha p115 G# doesn't work half the time

Unread post by bigguy8432 »

I just recently bought the Yamaha p115. I absolutely love it but today when I was playing I noticed that at C1 the G# doesn't work half the time and when it does it is very quiet. I was wondering if anyone had any solutions to this.

Here is a video of cleaning the carbon contacts from dust and hair .

I assume you didn't buy this new?

Les posted that link to the video about cleaning contacts which I think should help.

If the problem is isolated to just one key and it's intermittent it does sound more like a cleaning issue than a hardware problem. Of course it could be hardware but always best to go with the simplest solution first.

I would probably try compressed air first before dismantling the keyboard. You may be able to blow any dust or dirt out of there and save yourself a lot of work ;)
