How to Maintain Digital Piano?



1. Avoid place with a lot of foot-traffic or in direct sunlight, water, and moisture exposure! Like other pieces of furniture, they may expand, crack or fade in direct sunlight. 
  • Don't use the electronic devices near any heat sources (heater, radiator, stoves, computer, and even amplifier) and water! 
  • Clean only with dry cloth! 
  • Put it minimal 4 meters from the direct exposure of the things that have already mention above!

2. Don't plug your digital piano into an outlet that is shared by a microwave oven, air conditioner, refrigerator or any other major electrical appliance!
Interference from such devices can affect the sound of your piano, or interrupt its operation during high-power cycles. In extreme cases it may even damage the piano, fire, or risk of electric shock to person.

3. Don't operate your digital piano without plugging in through a guaranteed or insured surge suppressor or outlet strip!

4. Don't put any objects on the digital piano!
Don't place your computer or monitor directly atop your digital piano! (unless this use is specifically sanctioned by the piano manufacturer.) Marring the case not withstanding, you will likely change the acoustics and will place stress on the frame. The last thing you want is to develop an unpleasant rattle or buzz because the case on your piano has loosened up.


5. Cover the keys when you are not playing your digital piano
Digital pianos are more susceptible to damage from dust than real pianos. Dust gets into everything, and can cake up on sensors, electronics and other sensitive components. Most current models do have sealed actions, but not their controller boards and sound systems. 

6. Don't leave your digital piano turned on when you are not using it!
Digital piano will be better off if it is turned-off when not in use. When you finish playing your piano, please cover the keys and turn it off!

7. Keep your pets off of the piano!
No birds, cats, ferrets, rats, etc. This is mainly for hair reasons. Even with their sealed actions, pet hair can get into your piano and affect its performance. Either acoustically, by contributing to unpleasant buzz or kazoo affects; or electronically, by wedging into a sensor or by shorting something out. Your pets may inadvertently scratch the surface of the piano, affecting its appearance and resale value.

8. No eating or drinking around or on your digital piano!
Crumbs, grease, sugars, etc, are all bad--very bad!--for your piano. Entry of the water, needles, or hair pins may result in breakdown or short-circuit. The product shouldn't be exposed to splashing or dripping.

9. Don't hit, kick, lean, or pound your piano!
You can damage the action by hitting it with more force than your fingers can reasonably exert. Leaning against the digital piano may cause the product to fall over, resulting the injury. 

10. Wash your hands before playing, but don't insert/disconnected the power cord plug with wet hands!
Sticky, gummy, greasy and/or filthy keys are no fun. Prevent them by washing thoroughly before play. Don't forget to keep your hands dry afterwards to prevent an electric shock!

11. Protect the power cord from being walked on or pinched particularly at plugs, convenience receptacles, and the point where they exit from the apparatus.

12. Unplug this apparatus during lightning storms or when unused for long periods of time. Always hold the plug, and pull to remove it, when disconnecting the AC power cord's plug!

13. Only use attachments/accessories specified by the manufacturer.

14. Refer all servicing to qualified service personnel.
Don't disassemble, repair, or modify the product that may result in product breakdown, electric shock, or short-circuit! Service is required when the apparatus has been damaged in any way (e.g. power supply cord or plug is damaged, liquid has been spilled, object has fallen into the apparatus, has been exposed to rain/moisture, has been dropped), please don't operate manually!

15. Avoid listening with the headphones long periods of time at high volume levels! Doing so may cause hearing problems.
