It’s very sad when you realize that a particular key or some set of keys on your piano has stopped functioning or gets broken. It is not the end of the world. It could be caused by dust or being hit by an external force.
The good news is that , it can be repaired. The technicians who are into it call it “key servicng”. You can find people who would service or repair your piano keys for you around you.
They can be found at the market where you bought your musical instrument. You take it to them, wait and collect it. It’s not free ooo. The amount you would pay depends on the quality of your piano, the distance of the broken or mute keys from each other.
The keys of the piano are interlocked with each other. If two keys that are very close each other stopped working, it is cheaper to repair or service. If two keys that stop working or are broken are far from each other, it would cost more.
This is because, if a key should stop working, they would have to change about five keys because that one key is interlocked with five keys.
So if two faulty or broken keys are close to each other, it is more economical to repair because they would fall under the same five set of keys that are interlocked with each other.
So if two keys that are far from each other are broken or faulty, you might be have to replace ten keys.
I hope you understand.
