Ok, I am familiar with that problem. Since it's random notes, not all Cs, or all Ds, your tone generator is just fine. When you strike the keys, they hit velocity sensitive pads to make a sound. When they wear out, they will either sound at full volume like you hit the key with a hammer, or they won't sound at all. These are replaceable. You'll need to remove the screws from the bottom of the piano, and remove the top to expose the keys. Strike a key, and you'll see the pad strips where the key hits. That's the part that needs to be replaced. Since you live on the island, I'm unsure of shipping, but there are Yamaha headquarters in both Ireland and UK. The trick will be getting them shipped to you. Here are the parts department numbers: UK 0844(###) ###-####reland###-##-####
