Tech Question: PC-88

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone -- I'm new here. I have a quick question about my PC-88.

 

My center D has a strange problem. I press the key down, and then one of several things happens:

 

a) It's as if I'm pressing it multiple times, so I keep hearing a new attack. This is while holding the key down -- even without varying pressure.

 

b) It makes no sound at all, then suddenly it will sounds a new key-on attack.

 

c) Rapid-fire, random keypressing sound. Of course, I'm simply holding it down.

 

So clearly, I have an electrical contact issue. I'm very skilled at electrical wiring, etc., and would be happy to repair this myself. Can anyone recommend a part and source?

 

Thanks,

Josh

What my sheep friend said. :)

 

What you could do to make sure the problem is in the keybed : transpose your synth one semitone up or down to see if the problem moves one key.

 

If not, clean that key contact.

Ok, so I tore into it. In an attempt to get the little rubber boot out from above the contact, and through the little hole, I tore the boot.

 

Anyone have a good source for replacement parts? (While I'm at it, I need some 01W/FD key guides, too.

 

Thanks,

Josh

Yep, transposing didn't affect it at all.

Exactly -- I'm looking for some sort of parts store online.
