PX44 service manual

I recently purchased a second PX44 piano with all working keys in order to replace 1 key that has stopped working on my first piano. Does anyone have the service manual as I'm too chicken to open them up without it? Jonathan

Re: PX44 service manual

Me too, Jonathan!
Had our PX44 from new (nearly 30 years now!) and one key sometimes two doesn't play.
I'm going to try compressed air (same as for PC blowing) as apparently it can get dust underneath the keys.

Otherwise, it's either get a repair man in, or look at YouTube amd search for "Technics piano key repairs" or similar - there's a German(?) guy taking apart a different Technics piano, but same principles apply.

If I find a manual, I'll send you the link. Please do the same?

regards,
Alan

Re: PX44 service manual

Jonathan,
The nearest I got was searching for manuals on the technicskeyboards.com site.
This is for a Technics SX PX44V which I'm hoping/guessing would be the nearest, if not actually just another name for the same thing?
First attempts were slow on this site, and yielded invalid manual etc.
But subsequent attempts managed to get some sort of (scanned?) manual, which I've now printed off for reference.
Certainly the look seems extremely similar, although it covers 4 different types, presumably all similar?

Go tohttp://members.technicskeyboards.com/instruments/technics-px-pianos... and look down the list of manuals (5 pages). I think the SX PX44V is on the second or third page.
However, you have to register with them first (Guessing you've done that already as you've posted here? Same credentials seem to apply for the site and the forum!)

Otherwise, PM me and I'll send you my downloaded PDF.

It doesn't tell you a lot, but might help in determining how things are fixed together? Mainly screws, some precautions to take, and the YouTube video seems to cover that? That YouTubve video is athttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcoFXxtnZNE... but there may be others of use.

Hope that helps?
Kind regards,
Alan

Just noticed that you can attach a PDF file, so attached mine here:

Re: PX44 service manual

Hi Both,

Thanks for trying to help each other out!

Here are some posts that might help you. The principles of the workings of the keys are very similar on all models:

http://technicskeyboards.com/technics-keyboards-forum/technics-pr40...

http://technicskeyboards.com/technics-keyboards-forum/keys-hit-bott...

http://kn5000.technicskeyboards.com/home1/kn7000-forums/technics-ke...

If you're near Kent then I'm sure that Dave Tutt would be able to fix it for you if you have no luck yourself.

Good luck and best wishes,
Mike

Re: PX44 service manual

Thanks Mike!
A problem shared and all that?! .....

Yes, saw that Dave Tutt had extensive repair knowledge. I am in Nottingham so not much good there, however I think I have an independent similar guy who lives 50 yards away at the top of the street, according to his website?
If we have no joy sorting it ourselves, we'll phone him instead.

Thanks for all the links!

Kind regards,
Alan
