Has anybody an idea, what i could do to stop my keyboard Fatar SL-880 from dying? Once in a while a note-on or note-off message gets lost. Pretty rarely yet, but still.

I think its about the key contacts getting worn. Am i right?

Anyway, the contacts probably can be cleaned somehow. But has anybody ever taken a hammer-action keyboard apart, to tell me if there are any tricks to be prepared to?

Sometimes the whole thing is acting weird — not working at all or reacting crazy, like playing all with full velocity or different notes at all. In this case a reset helps. I'm about to replace the control board, but thanks to the so called 'revolution' in Thunisia, i'll have to wait months for the spare parts.

Any thoughts or suggestions?
