(I saw similar questions answered here, so I'm posting this one. If it's off-topic, please accept my apologies.)
Two keys are broken on a Roland XP-80 keyboard I play. I can see that the plastic is broken (in the same place: at the hinge on the end.)
Here's a picture:
All I can see to do is one of the following:
- Remove the black plastic strip at the top (glued on) and the green felt strip at the bottom (also glued on) to remove the keys. The prongs on the bottom of the key (at the bottom of the image) prevent me from taking the key out without breaking it, which suggests that I can't put the new keys in without breaking them.
- Bend up a tab (just above the green felt) to allow enough play to remove it.
Has anyone done this before? I've looked all around without much luck, and the KB is fairly old, well past support, and probably not hiring someone to fix.
