I didn't played on my Casio PX-5S for a very long time, until about a month ago - That's when I started to use my PX-5S again for few specific purposes.
So I might have forgotten the feel of the action.
But whenever I played on my PX-5S lately, I felt the action is shaky, like, when I press on a key in a normal piano touch and keep the key pressed for a few seconds I feel vibrations in my fingers, that come from the wobbly action mechanism.
The thing is that I don't remember this feeling and these vibrations from when I played intensively on my PX-5S few years ago. It might be that I didn't noticed this shaky feeling back than because it was my first digital piano and I played on it every day and was used to its feeling, and that now I have just got spoiled by my ultra realistic Kawai MP11SE action - In that case this issue wouldn't bother me at all, I'm fine with it, and I still can see myself use my PX-5S in various situations.

But I suspect that something got wrong with my PX-5S, and the keypad touch is invalid. Maybe it got old and stored too much time standing vertically - Maybe that messed with the action mechanism.
In that case I would be very disappointed.

But the biggest problem here is that I can't tell by myself.

I don't think storing it has caused any problem. The PX5S keybed was always inherently "rattly". I owned one for a couple of years and though it had a good feeling weighted action, the rattlyness did get to me, and I sold it. It doesn't bother many people.
The latest PX series are much improved in this respect, and are quieter and tighter.

I think you have just become spoilt by the MP11SE. Owning the Kawai myself, I can see how the looseness of the PX5S keybed would stand out, as the Grandfeel is one of the tighter and quieter keybeds out there.

The price point and technology in each is quite different, and you may have to just accept it this way.

The later are tighter and quieter and more fatiguing to play.

I own Kawai MP11 (not SE); PX-5S, and have new Casio PXS-3000 (with the new action).

A. PX-5S = noisy enough that the LA house I was staying in a couple of years ago (and am now) made me stop practicing (with headphones) after 11 p.m. Not so with 3000;

B. A-B'd these actions at Guitar Center 2 days ago. I prefer the older action; the new one, as Rintincop says, is fatiguing (due to short fulcrum);

C. I've never had your rattle issue on my PX-5S, stored upright. 3000 instruction manual says don't do this; don't know if PX-5S says the same;

D. 3000 piano sound is great and much improved.
