Theres a good article at recordingreview.com. If you join which is free you have access to a lot of great information. You can download Midiox to troubleshoot your midi connections etc. Make sure that your transmit channel on your keyboard matches up with the receive channel in your program. Hope this helps.

You may need to clean the contacts which are usually conductive rubber. I explained stuff for another Roland problem with two keys that were intermittent. I have an EP-7 that I had to do the cleaning of the key contacts. Use 91 or 99 % Isoprophyl alcohol to clean BOTH the conductive "pill" (Black under silicone rubber domes) AND the traces on the board where they press. Clean gently as the traces have a hard black coating.

It sounds as if the membrane under the key needs to be replaced. It can be done with some careful work yourself but you might want to consider having it serviced by a Roland dealer as apparently the parts are becoming scarce. Hope this helps.

The ROLAND pianos USUALLY require that you use a normally closed sustain pedal.
MANY pedals are the opposite and close when pressed. SOMETIMES you can open the pedal and reverse the way the switch works.

Unless you are skilled at electronics troubleshooting, you would probably be better off taking it in to be repaired. It might be the power transformer or a filter capacitor or a number of other things. The problem may not even be visible. You will definitely need a schematic and some test equipment.
