Casio CDP-200R - suggested use? #2810463

Greetings!

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.

Thanks!

At least now you have true flat keys ;-)

Fix it of course! smile

The problem could be where the key and hammer meet as in:



This guy talks about keys that return slowly due to misalignment of those black plastic pieces at the end of the hammer. I believe Casio calls them "hammer caps":

Problem:

If I owned an LX708 I'd treat a CDP200 as unwanted baggage.

But a broken CDP200? It's landfill.

I now have a pressing urge to laugh at my own first-world 'predicament'. ;-)

Hi clothearednincompo,

Thanks so much for taking the time and making the effort to share these links. I'll show these to my son and let him decide whether to attempt fixing it. At least it will keep him from tinkering with other items in the household. So far, he's taken apart alarm clocks, part of the heating system panels, bikes and is showing increasing interest in taking apart the coffee machine and grinder to find out how it works!
