I know that this is not an issue unique to my piano, but I have yet to find a solution. Essentially, the keys on my piano have begun to have a loud clunky mechanical rebound after they are pressed. Some worse than others. I have only had the piano for a few months, and I have tried applying piano safe lubricant to the pads on the action, but no luck. Does anyone have experience with this or know of a solution?

What lubricant are you using?

You should be using a white silicone plastic-safe grease but you don't just smear it from the outside.

You have to disassemble the board and apply it very sparingly.

The actual problem is the felt bumper strip is getting worn and compressed and needs replacement.

Check out Youtube for tutorials on fixing noisy keys.

I used Protek 1406, just a few drops per key directly to where the key itself contacts the action. Would you expect the felt to already be worn down over just 2-3 months of casual use?

Thanks

The solution is to contact the vendor.

The action on the 30 is imo the best within its price range and for a newish keyboard you should not be having this problem, especially as the 30X versions are at max two years old.

It will still be within its manufacturers warranty period.

I agree with you. In my purchasing process I tried many digital pianos in this range and it was very clear the PHA4s are excellent actions. I spoke with my vendor who punted me to Roland directly, who then pushed me off to a service center hours away. Pretty bummed, but I'll keep at it.
