Hello!
I don't know if this is the right section of the forum, I hope it is.

I have a Roland HP 136 digital piano, and earlier today a guitar dice fell between the keys. At first, I didn't care because it played as usual, but after a few minutes of playing, the keys between which the pick had fallen in began to make a strange sound when I pressed them even though the piano was turned off. Does anyone have any idea how I can pull the dice out? I tried using a piece of paper and a vacuum cleaner to pull it out, but nothing worked. I tried to unscrew the bottom of the piano but there are so many screws that I don't know if this is a good idea. I'm not concerned with just getting the cube out, I'll be happy if I can't hear it.

I can't imagine what "dice" and "cube" could mean here, so I assume you meant "guitar pick", which could fit between the keys.
You might try turning the piano upside down (if possible), and wiggling the keys that the pick fell between, hoping that it will fall out. If that doesn't work, with the piano still upside down, you might insert a small tapered screwdriver as a wedge between the fronts of the keys involved, to spread them a little further apart, and then wiggle the keys.

play it for a while, the pick might fall to the bottom of the keybed where it wont be a problem anymore.

If you want to open it up, look for manuals online.

Good chance another panel then the bottom comes off first

You have to remove 5 screws to remove the lid.
Then remove one or two keys, where the guitar pick is and put it out.

I also wondered what a guitar dice would be.

Google tells me that musical dice are apparently a real thing. Who'da thunk it?

Your dilemma piqued my interest enough to look up what your old Roland looks like.

Having now confirmed it was built like a full-sized 88 key piano, i think it safe to say that unless it has incurred, over the years, significant wear & tear between two or more adjacent keys, a typical whole or 1/2 pair of 🎲 did not fall between the keys 🙂

The following PS- already linked thanks GeorgeZ - may be of some help to you.

Perhaps in return you might share some help for the curious minds wanting to know - how? - said guitar accessory found its way into such a dicey predicament.
