Is this "annoying plasticky click" something that developed over time? ... or was it an issue from the start?
I got it second hand so sorry, I don't know if it was there at manufacture.
One way to stop clicking noises:
. . . Put a thin layer of silicone sealant between the clicking parts.
Thanks for that! It sounds ideal. I'll order some and give it a go. Just got to work out how to remove the keyboard assembly now.
And it may void the warranty. Kawai James may have some comments . . .
The warranty is only 1 year labour, 3 year parts, and it's (just) over a year old, so I'd have to pay for labour which is the expensive part for something like this. Kawai also specified that the warranty is non-transferable, so I'd have to claim via the previous owner, which I'm not going to do unless it's something really major. It excludes "attempted repairs", which I'd interpret as meaning anything you break while attempting to fix it is not covered (fair enough); however simply attempting repairs (and not damaging anything upon you wish to subsequently claim) does not affect the warranty.
