Hi,

I'm new this forum and this is my first post - thanks for reading.

I just acquired a VALDESTA GX-5 and it works very well, except one key produces not sound. I took the top of the piano off to see if anything obvious was broken... turns out, I didn't see much from the top. I did notice two bent rods sitting there and I have no idea if they are related to the bad key.

Any and all guidance regarding this issues would be much appreciated.

TIA,

Wayne

Hmmm can’t say what those rods are, can’t be good. I would concentrate firstly on the sensor(s) associated with the defective key, or compare good and bad key physical construction. Good luck.
