If you are very concerned, check with your dealer or contact Casio directly. I have never owned one and don't know anyone who does so can't give you personal experience on this one.
In the case of setting the keyboard on its end, I have not heard of one being damaged internally as a result of storing it on its side. Again, if you are still concerned, ask for confirmation from Casio directly.
I would very much doubt that you could harm it by storing this way.ThunderFingers wrote:Hi, I was hoping I could get some advice on my Casio CDP 100.I have limited space at the moment and was wondering wheather it could harm anything if I have it stored vertically up against a wall.I was more concerned about the weighted keys as when it is in this position they seem to become light.I know its an odd question but its better safe than sorry. Many thanks, Thunder
Due to space restrictions I have several keyboards stored vertically - an early 70's Yamaha PS30, Yam SY99 and Yam EX5, which don't seem to suffer at all from positioning this way.
I do try however to keep them as dry and as well ventilated as possible, as I know from experience that hot/humid conditions do adversely affect the rubber drive belt of the floppy drives - not easy to find but I always keep a spare.
