Yamaha clp 150 - some notes are suddenly loud, but not every time they are played. Might this be repaired on site, do you think we?
Hello, my name is Rusty. There are velocity sensitive pads that Yamaha uses to make the sound. When these wear out, they lose their velocity sensing capabilities, and they can sound like you are pounding on the keys.
This can be fixed at home with a steady hand.
Remove the cover to expose the back of the keys. When you press the key down, you'll see where it hits the pad. Those come in strips, and they are available from the Yamaha parts department. Here is their contact info:

That is their customer service team. They will most likely have you power off the equipment, etc... Ask to order parts.
If you would rather speak to a service center, here is their contact info:
