Greetings. I have a Privia PX-350. One Bb key sounds the note when you strike it, and then it sounds again when you release the key, so you get a double-hit effect. If you strike it softly, it doesn't do it, have to hit it a little on the hard side. Also, I discovered that using an organ patch, normal function would be for the organ note to keep sounding as long as I hold it, but on this key, the organ sounds for a second and then stops. Then when I release the key, it makes another quick sounding of the note.

I have some technical ability, not afraid to open it up and poke around, but before doing that, thought I'd see if anyone knows if this might be a simple fix, or needs to be taken into to someone with more knowledge about it than I.

Thanks!

Probably a contact strip under the keybed needs to be replaced.

I'd rate it about a 7 or 8 out of 10 in difficulty for a DIY repair.

Not impossible but more difficult than just popping a few screws and putting it back together again.

The whole thing pretty much has to come apart to fix it.

Check out youtube for videos on how to repair a Casio Keyboard and other brands as well to get a feel for the complexity of the job. It's a fairly recent model so parts should be readily available.

How old is the keyboard? (Is it under warrantee?)

Probably a stupid question, but it doesn't hurt to ask.

Actually Fred, your question is not that ridiculous.

Casio had a policy the past few years that if you registered your unit online when you bought it they would extend the warranty to 3 years.

Sorry that little detail slipped my mind until you brought it up.
