Did you buy it used?

a few keys produced sound at first. Some with no velocity control. The metronome also worked for a little while but eventually everything stopped responding
Electronic Musical Instrument Expert: Harry, Customer Service replied 6 months ago

Unfortunately, it sounds like you will need to find someone locally to come out and take a look at your piano to find out the exact issue with it.

Is it possible to salvage the digital midi output from the keys?
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
Unfortunately there is no one certified to repair Casio products in Hawaii so if I can salvage the weighted keys that would be more than enough for me
Electronic Musical Instrument Expert: Harry, Customer Service replied 6 months ago

That is a great question and I am not sure of the answer to that one but Casio should be able to answer it for you if you call: 1-***-***-****

Already tried that, they aren't very interested in answering any types of creative rebuild questions
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
It's been hard to find someone to answer any of my questions in general
Electronic Musical Instrument Expert: Harry, Customer Service replied 6 months ago

I am sorry to hear that -- I would try calling back and it could have been just the person that you spoke with.

Customer reply replied 6 months ago
I wish that was the case, I've spoken to roughly 15 people, it's crazy
Electronic Musical Instrument Expert: Harry, Customer Service replied 6 months ago

That is unfortunate.

Have you called anyone locally?

Actually I spoke to every music store/repair on Oahu lol, no one was willing to help
Electronic Musical Instrument Expert: Harry, Customer Service replied 6 months ago

Oh wow.

I am sorry to hear that because that is a bad sign if there are zero people that are able to help you locally or through Casio.

Ask Your Own Electronic Musical Instruments Question
Customer reply replied 6 months ago
It's mostly because no one does musical instrument repairs on Oahu so everyone I spoke to on the phone had absolutely no idea what I was even talking about.
Electronic Musical Instrument Expert: Harry, Customer Service replied 6 months ago

Yes, I understand and unfortunately, this is a niche market so you will need to keep searching for someone that can help you locally.
