I have an SXPR305 digital by Technics- about 15 years old. Has anyone ever had to have keys replaced on a similar instrument and if so, is it expensive? Several of the keys sound like the key tops are loose like an acoustic would( rattles when played), but look like they are just one piece. Thanks in advance.

I have the same problem on my Technics PR 305. Many of the keys "bang" when pressed. I was advised on this forum to just get a new piano.

maybe you could open the keyboard case and check out the key's mechanics to see if they're fixable. if not, then get a new one. 15 year time is quite long, and DP technology has advanced a few generations already.
