Customer Question

My Roland FP7 has a single key note that is overly-sensitive...as if the felt was not on the hammer head. How do I fix that?

Hello Michael.
About 7 years.

Thank you for that information. Really you can replace the entire keyboard assembly.

Or you can be creative and open the unit and replace the felt with store bought felt sheets cut down to fit ;-)

Don't use Super glue, krazy glue!!! Only use a tiny drop of 5 min epoxy for this or contact cement.

Let me know if you just want to order the whole keyboard assembly and replace all the keys that way?

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate kindly thus far, it won't cost you anything to rate my service to you kindly,

Hi Michael.
Thanks, ***** ***** don't like your solution at all...especially after getting a second opinion.
I suspect you made very little (if any) research into the problem...(which has nothing to do with actual felt...I mentioned that only as a metaphor).
I do not expect to be charged.

Hi Greg, I have been fixing these for many years and I understand what you meant about the "felt feel".

But that is one way to solve this issue, especially if the key is still working. Also I did recommend replacing the key or the entire keyboard as possible solutions and what I recommended.

I will let Customer Service know about this so they put it through as a refund fro you. Please allow a few weeks for processing.

Thank you Greg and have a great weekend!

Tech Michael
