this Yamaha psr 225gm digital keyboard has a set of keys that do not work. all the keys that do not work are along 2 circuits that then connect to the microprocessor. On the. Board that has the microprocessor where all the key matrix circuit lines come together it seems Like there is some sort of short happening. If I test for continuity on different pins there is some response from pins that don’t seem to be on the same circuit. But I’m not sure how that could be. They are connected along what I think is a capacitor although I’m not entirely sure about that because it doesn’t look like any capacitor I’ve seen. It’s the one labeled c101m In the first photo and the long row of pins above the microprocessor that my fingers shadow is pointed at. these pins have some continuity between themselves that is strongest on pins near each other that fades out as I test pins further from each other. So is It possible for the mystery component/ possible capacitor to go bad and allow this to happen? Or is it possibly something wrong with the microprocessor? I am not very experienced with circuits but its my friends keyboard and she can’t afford to buy a new one right now. Any ideas, explanations, or corrections are welcome.
