Schaff Brothers (variously G. Schaff): Gotthard and John Schaff founded the company in Chicago in 1861. After building pianos, they decided in 1884 to focus on manufacturing piano strings (Schaff Piano String Corporation), as Chicago was a center for piano-making. Presumably their piano product was overshadowed by one or more of those other makers, and the clever Schaff brothers knew to fold their piano tent and focus on something they did very well. Eventually, Schaff bought American Piano Supply, and they continue to do business as Schaff Piano Supply. If you could find any instruments, they would be wrecks not worthy of restoration.

It's nothing to worry about! It is just what the manufacturer has built in to notify you that you've left your piano on.

Sometimes tuners can be overly sensitive! You've just got to sit in a quiet room and wait for the needle to settle, then give it another try.

You can use the guide for troubleshooting the YPG-225 provided by ifixit here. There is a section labeled "Keys don't produce sound". If you need the manual for this keyboard, it is here.
If those keys which do not produce a sound are somehow hanging (are lower than the other keys) and are somehow slack, the problem is related to broken keys. They need to be replaced. In this case, you can use this guide here on ifixit.

I am afraid that serial no. does not exist for Straube Pianos! The highest possible no it could be is 65021.

I am assuming this is an upright Circa Wurlitzer made in 1930 . A similar model was sold here for £300.
Some are going for more like £500. Others are being given away for next to nothing! (£35 or less!)
It depends entirely on the condition of your piano, not just what model it is.

I suggest you pay for what is called a "blue book" valuation of your piano. You can do it all online and it costs around £25.

Wurlitzer Music | Answered 8 hours ago

OK, first of all try this.
1) Connect the pedal
2) Turn on the PX-5S
4) Pedal should function normally
If the above procedure does not give you the desired results, then there's a few other things to check before sending it back for repair.
1) Back up all of your stage settings and try a factory reset.
If this works, then great.
If this does not work then
1) Back up all of your settings, reinstall the latest firmware, then initialize the keyboard with a factory reset.
If none of these procedures works, then you have some sort of hardware problem and need to get an RMA to return the unit for repair.

While it is possible (probable) it is caused by the AC mains modulating the output due to a power supply fault, it could be caused by inadvertently creating a hum loop due to poor grounding - check out the link below...
