Likely a connection to the backlight is being broken. Tap on the unoit and see if it pops back on. Illuminate screen with a flashlight and see if the characters can be seen when screen is faded. If they can, then the backlight is the problem... IF NOT then the display may be bad... This has been a problem and if you are under warranty, excersise it immediately... else replacement of the display is relatively expensive.

Well first start by calling or emailing the manufacturer. They'll let you know who distributes their parts or If it's still available or not. But also could be a power supply problem.

It sounds like one of the OTS buttons is getting triggered accidentally. There may be a build up of residue behind the button. With the unit off, try rapidly pressing the OTS buttons, one at a time. This should help to move any debris which may be creating a false contact.

If you are feeling brave, you can try opening the keyboard and getting inside, under the button with some electrical contact cleaner such as DeOxit or Servisol.But be warned: it can be difficult to get the parts back together properly! So if you don't have much servicing experience, call your local music shop to find a service technician.

You MAY be confusing touch sensitivity with VELOCITY sensing. Touch sensitivity is PRESSURE put on AFTER the note sounds that causes modulation. VELOCITY is what is used for example to control the loudness of pianoo notes depending how fast they are struck. VELOCITY sensing is done by using TWO contacts at every key... one closes first. IF one of these gets dirty, FULL velocity will be sensed and it will be LOUD. The contacts can be cleaned using ONLY 99% isoprophyl alcohol and Qtips after MUCH disassembly of the keyboard. The contacts are conductive rubber pills in silicone rubber domes. Clean boththe contacts and the circuit traces they pres down onto.

seems to be a standard acoustic setup to me. If it doesn't have all the string pins in it, you'll need to get some. you simply pull out the pin, put the string in, then wind it up on the machine heads (tuners) On this one you may need to put the strings through from the inside, I'm not sure about this particular model. I like a double wrap to start on the bass strings, but that's a choice I make. You could go with nylon strings, get ball end, they're easier to use than plain. It takes a bit of know how to do plain, thy have to be wrapped just right on the pins.

If you are talking about cleaning the rubber contacts I wouldn't bother. Once they start to fail then it is best to replace them. You can do this either for the octave giving problems or best to replace complete set. Main part is VY84670R your piano has 6 octaves of these. with a shorter part at either end.

Yes you may use it as stand alone piano. Usually everytime you will power ON any yamaha psr model piano will appear as default voice.
