How would you fix uneven key gaps in a plastic/metal digital piano action?

Something needs to be adjusted or shimmed. The keys frame is probably made up of sections, each section screwed down to a base or something. The fact that the gaps appear commonly between E/F and B/C leads me to think that’s likely. Otherwise it would probably need some shimming or bending depending on whatever else is going on. Usually there’s a pivot point at the back of the key, and some kind of guide at the front of the key. If the gaps were random I’d think the guides need shimming or adjusting.

The keys sit on the plastic pins. I am not sure one can bend them without breaking. I contacted Roland and they said one can not bend them the only possibly option is to change places of the keys (I am not sure how this suppose to solve the issue).

Here the video, where a guy disassembled a Roland FP-30 that has the same PHA-4 keyboard. You can see the plastic pins there. smile
