No keyboard no sound. It's easy as that. But don't be afraid, replacing it is also very easy.

This guide shows you how to replace the keyboard of your OP-1.

  1. To get to the screws beneath the keyboard you need to take some keys off. You can use either an opening tool or an opening pick. The first picture shows how it should look like with all the necessary keys off (12 in total). The four longer keys from the fingerboard are to be handled from the left side to get them off. The eight smaller keys need to be levered from the bottom up.

  2. The scissor mechanism of the eight small keys are obstructing the underlying screws. By using again an opening tool or opening pick these can be snapped off easily.

    • When installing the new keyboard, make sure to remove the protective film underneath the screen.

    • The OP-1 has a mode to test specific functions. You can enter it by holding the "COM" button while powering on, then choose the function test (2). You don't have to complete every test and can power off after the keyboard test.

Worked like a charm. My OP-1 feels brand new.

After reassembling everything I have one key ( the upper A) which retriggers the sound randomly if I press the key.

I hope that the reason is not that I put the flex cable back too loose … and i have to open it again. Anyone had this before?
