Introduction: How to Repair Sticky Keys of Digital Piano

I have a roland Ep 9 digital piano and the problem was the keys were very hard to press whenever i started playing and there was a clicking noise while pressing them. These keys use grease to be played smoothly, so i decided to repair it and share it with you because I have heard that sharing is caring......
I hope i could do the justice to teach you how to disassemble and repair in detail.

Step 1: Unscrew the Back Cover of the Keyboard

Unscrew all the screws from the back side of the keyboard an keep all the screws in a bowl or something you find is safe for screws as you will need them while re-assembling.

Step 2: Lift the Cover Like This

Step 3: Now Unscrew the Highlighted Screw on Both Sides

Step 4: Remove the Strips Carefully

Gently pull one end of the strip at a time and then second and remember the position of the strip ends.

there is a key stopper which has no screws but it uses double coated tape. Just remove it as in the image. And while reassembling use double coated tape and press it hard.

Step 9: Remove the Spring of the Keys

Carefully remove the springs of the keys as shown in the image use a tweezer to hold the spring and keep them in a secure box or whatever you find is safe so you don't lose it.

Step 10: Disassemble the Keys

Now Disassemble a white key and as shown in the image you will see old and sticky grease there which causes the trouble of clicking noise and hard to press keys. Remove the old grease with Isopropyl alcohol swabs which i used and apply new grease to make them work smoothly.
