so, sometime during transport over the last week, my yamaha p90 sustained some sort of impact and now the lowest eb has "popped up".  it still works, but now it is raised above the key bed, and the d and e click whenever i play them.

can this be fixed?  for anything amounting to a reasonable cost?

i would have thought so...i dropped a korg sp200 on one of its keys and had someone come and fix it after ordering a replacement key, afraid i dont know of the cost as it was paid for by someone else!

your situation sounds like something that can only be definitively answered by an engineer looking at the stage piano itself, although you at least know that repairs are possible.
those yamaha keys are pretty easy to reset.

if it's not actually broken and just popped out, you can just put it back where it needs to be.

pop open the lid and have a peek.
i service yamaha electronic pianos from time to time. a plastic piece on the bottom of the key itself has probably broken. the repair should not be difficult nor expensive.
i don't suppose you are in the sc area ?
nah.  wooster, ohio.

i think it's just popped out.  the key is still attached and everything.
you should have no problem getting it fixed. just ask at a licensed dealer if they are authorized to do such repairs. if not get their recommendation as to where to get it repaired. there is an excellent shop in cincinnati but thats a little far for you. but like 7 said open it up and see, it may just be disconnected or disjointed, and might pop right back in.  
peace out.
