I've been annoyed for quite some time now by one (occasionally) sticky key, and by another one making a ticking noise every time it is played.
So a while ago I went to a music shop with a repair department, but one month later the problem returned, so now I thought I'd open it up myself.
However I'm not really certain about how to get a key out. I took some photographs and hoped some of you could help me out
First this, just about every key looks like this:
Beneath the white from the keys, there are these broken plastic things, I don't really know but you can't really miss it when you see the photo. Is that a bad sign or something, or doesn't it matter?
Alright, onto the keys themselves. The following picture has been taken from the position behind the keyboard. So you're looking from the upper side of the key (on the top of the photograph) to the lower side (on the bottom of the photograph)
You see these triangles/square things, here is the keybed from the side:
Now, when I push the mentioned triangle/square thing, this happens:
On the left you see there is some sort of metal part getting curved. And there's a couple of things moving of course.
So my question is, how do I get these keys out? Or how can I stop them from making a ticking noise / from being sticky?
Thank you in advance
