Well... they're out there. Yamaha did notice a disproportionate amount of Clavinovas that were exhibiting problems (such as keys getting stuck and becoming unresponsive). It seems Clavinovas made in the year 200? had this production "flaw", and now Yamaha is offering a full keyboard replacement for those who purchased one of the faulty Clavinovas. Yamaha checks serial numbers to know whether the model "qualifies" for a full keyboard replacement, so if in doubt, get your serial number checked!

I checked with my Yamaha Service Technician, he couldn't give me an exact year. It wouldn't apply to the older models though, that's why I put 200?

Well guess what...it seems 2002 was the "lucky year".
Yamaha should go back to basics and keep Clavinova manufacture in Japan, not Malaysia or Indonesia.

Welcome Professor!

You have to be more specific. Tell us little more about yourself, please. Do you own a Yamaha Clavinova, if this is the case, what model?

Many members on this forum own a Clavinova as it is one of the most sold digital pianos in the universe. If you want to know more about this instrument, this is the place. thumb

Best regards,

I'm with Richard,
This is an odd thread without substance. Makes one wonder the reasoning to plug it in here.

What is so "odd" about it? This thread is relevant to anyone who owns a digital piano.
Everything I said is true. I became aware of it when my Yamaha Service Technician came to do some repairs on my Clavinova.
It seems my CVP-201 was part of the faulty batch of Clavinovas that were produced sometime between 2001-2002, so Yamaha will provide a replacement keyboard as part of the warranty. I did notice my CVP was made in Indonesia and yes, I bought it new in 2002.

Odd applies to your ..."disproportionate" amount of Clavinovas... yet, there has been no complaints on here, NOT to a DISPROPORTIONATE amount anyways.

Odd, applies to your rather VAGUE post with practically NO specifics.

Everyone here appreciates input on relevant stuff and bad experiences are one of those as well. But you do need to spell out the issue with a bit more detail, in order to make your charge stand. That's all. I did not mean to imply anything else.

Cheers,
Witold

I just had a similar situation. My CLP107 (purchased in Jan. 01) was part of the faulty batch. The problem was a bad batch of plastic that causes pieces of they key mechanism to crack. When that happens, the key doesn't sit properly and leans to one side, usually causing it to stick.

Yamaha customer service did a fantastic job of replacing it. I just sent them an email and gave them the model and serial number, and they were able to tell it was part of the faulty batch. Within a week, my technician had the replacement keyboard from them and installed it completely on their dime.

Not sure how it works as far as the actual warranty is concerned. I think my actual warranty had expired, however they still replaced it completely free.
