Friends, may I please ask your advice? My Kawai MP6 is several years old. Recently, a few individual notes intermittently sound very loud, even though the keys are played at the same volume as other keys at the same time, e.g., in a chord. This happens only once and then the note returns to normal, but some time later (tens of minutes or more) the same note might sound loudly again (again, just once). This only happens with ~4 keys in the mid range of the piano. Is there something that I can do to fix this? Thanks much for your advice! Best wishes, Julian

I experienced the same behavior with a Emu longboard. It was fixed by cleaning the contact rubber and the contact on the pcb.

Cleaning the contract rubber doesn't include aggressively rubbing the black dots on the inside. They might wear off. They are the conductive coating on the (usually) gray silicone. Be gentle.
