Question about Casio PX-830 BK Privia

1 Answer

My casio privia px830 pedal doesn't sustain enough,

I have problems with the sustain pedal. It never holds the notes long enough. I holds for just a secondd and then it's like you never held the note at all. I know this piano should hold way mpore notes at once like when you play an arpeggio you should hear all the notes held. But all I get is a few notes then nothing. Anyone else have this problem? It's annoying since I have played all my life and I know this pedal is working very little or doesn't work at all sometimes. Help!!?

It could be that the electronics of the pedal are dirty, or that dirt has collected under it causing it to not depress all the way. Try taking it apart and cleaning it with a Q-tip and rubbing alcohol. Be very careful of any wires or delicate articles.

SOURCE: Roland DP-2 pedal not functioning correctly.

There are two types of damper pedal switches, on that is closed until you press it, and one that closes when your press it. It sounds like your Casio is expecting one type and your Roland pedal is the other type. A quick way to test this is to plug a guitar cable into the Casio pedal input and see if the keyboard sustains. If it does, then your Casio requires an "normally closed" switch.

Some pedals have a small switch near the cord or even on the bottom of the pedal that will reverse the switching operation (BOSS pedals, a division of Roland, have this feature). If you can find that, then change the switch position and you should be OK.

If not, and you feel like digging into your pedal, you could take the bottom off of the pedal and check out the switch itself. Many pedals use a switch that can be used either way. The clue will be on the switch itself. If there is an extra tab on the switch that is unused, then switch the wire that is furthest away from that tab to that tab. This will probably involve soldering, but it is nearly impossible to damage anything.
If moving the wire that is furthest away does not do anything, then try putting that wire back and switching the other one.

If your pedal does NOT have an extra tab, you're SOL, unless you want to buy a replacement switch (unsure of make). If this is the case, you are probably better off getting a different damper pedal - preferably one that is marketed as "universal"

SOURCE: My Casio Privia PX-110 is playing two notes at

IF every key sounds like it is doing that, you may have two voices selected with one of them being transposed.

You may have an "effect" turned on that generates a chorus, layered or multiple voice sounds.

SOURCE: Casio Privia PX-800: When using the sustain

Check if the cble frm the pedal MIGHT be flexing or pulling on the keyboard case when you use it. Such movement COULD vibrate the power connector causing your problem.

Make sure you have the right power supply for the unit as one with too large a hole for the power pin would be intermittent like this.

SOURCE: sustain is in reverse yamaha p-85

Make sure the pedal is plugged in before you turn the keyboard on and do not compress the pedal until the keyboard is on. Good luck.

SOURCE: casio privia key issue

The only way to analyze this is to open the case. You may find contaminating material has gotten in, or broken part, or key slightly out of position on pivots or pivot plastic broken.

When opening, be VERY careful of the tender ribbon cables. Have a large work surface that you can unfold the top onto. Be careful to use correct screw lengths and thread in each place you removed.

I have a Piano from Casio Named The PX830 BP.I also have a Sustain Pedal Model from Casio named the SP 33.Will connecting the SP 33 into the PX830 BP work?Please tell me if I have the wrong model.


Unfortunately, the SP33 pedal will not work with the PX-830BP. Casio lists that the SP33 will only work with the PX-150BK, PX-150WE, PX-160BK, PX-160GD, PX-350BK, PX-350WE, PX- 360, and PX-560 keyboards.

The PX-830 manual does not list the stand or the pedal unit as separate items if you need to replace them. The pedal unit has 3 pedals like a traditional piano. I wish that I had better news for you.

Casio Privia 410r Piano soft pedal problem


The Casio Privia 410r has two pedal jacks at the back. One is the sustain pedal, the other is the soft/sus jack. Please use the other jack if you want to use sustain pedal. Only 1 of the 2 jacks can be used.


However, if you have the optional sp30a pedal which plugs UNDER the piano instead, then only can you have 3 different piano pedals.

Today I received my new Privia px830 and three keys works as an interruptor: play notes at full intensity. Are sensors cracked?


The sensors are rubber, and don't usually crack. Most of the time they are dirty and can be cleaned with rubbing alcohol and Q-tips VERY carefully. Also be careful of the ribbon wires inside the keyboard. The keys should just snap in and out. I cleaned mine a little while ago, and now it works perfectly.

Yep... Roland pedals are reversed, that is, normally closed contacts. Unlike some Yamaha keyboards, the Casio doesn't have an inversion function available. You have two choices to solve this: 1. Buy a pedal with the corect sense 2. Open the Roland pedal and MAYBE with a soldering iron you can move a wire to select a contact with the opposite sense.

It sounds like the sustain is stuck on as if a sustain pedal is active. You don't mention if you have one, however if you MIGHT have one and you have used a Roland pedal, that brand is reverse sensed and would cause note to remain on.

Sorry, but Roland uses the opposite sense switch. They use normally closed where Casio requires normally open contacts. SOMETIMES one can rewire the pedal internally, but you have to be mechanically and electrically inclined to do that.

Hi. I'm Using PX330 as a midi controller that plays "Galaxy pianos" in cubase 5. I'm interested in buying a continuous sustain pedal (the one I got with the piano is an On\Off pedal). can you...


The Yamaha FC-3 uses a TRS (three conductor plug). The PX330 does NOT use TRS jacks for the sustain and sostenuto pedals so they are NOT compatible with the Yamaha FC-3. Therefore I would conclude that continous sustain that the Yamaha pedal would be used for is NOT supported.

Hi, the sustain pedal on my Casio PX-830 has a constant squeak now after 6 months, any ideas on a fix for this? Thanks.


clean with q-tips and rubbing alcohol around the moving parts, let dry 5 min, and some graphite lubricant may help. graphite is a slippery dry powder good for reducing friction on moving parts. comes in a little tube, normally sold buy the key making dept at any store

My sustain pedal stopped working on Privia PX-110


Use an ohmmeter to verify the switch is working to the connector.

Switch failures and broken cords are not that uncommon. Test the EASY stuff first.

Beyond that, check for options regarding pedals in the setup of the unit in your user's manual.
