First up - I am immensely grateful to all those who shared their knowledge, thoughts, opinions, views with humour and grace on the Yamaha AG NU1X and N1X, the Kawai CA-58 and -78 and Novus NV10, the Casio Celviano GP series, and the Roland LX-700 series (that list is not in any particular order, in case anyone is wondering!).
This is my first post. Came across this forum when I was researching upright acoustic / hybrid / digital pianos as my son looks like he will continue piano lessons and loves tinkering with his Casio CDP-200R
. Couple of the keys on his Casio are now 'stuck' as in they are permanently depressed.
Ended up buying the Roland LX-708 and am currently waiting for delivery (more eagerly than my son, I might add). The post about what to do while waiting has come in handy and I've put it to good use.
Now, I'm wondering what to do with the Casio - repair the 'stuck' keys (they are B-flats an octave apart)!? Any options instead of consigning the instrument to landfill? Where to upcycle/refurbish/donate for spare parts? Found this guide - https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/CASIO+CDP-230R+Key+Replacement/98338
- and I'm tempted to attempt it just for fun's sake (call me crazy!). I'm based in Australia.
