When I strike E, it's hammer sometimes(most of the time) doesn't go back- like when i press and hold, the hammer will not go back so it's just on the string and therefore doesn't let the key sound better, it's like muting it. but sometimes it also does return especially if i release it a little then press it again.

is it a problem on the spoon, or is the the jack?

It would help if you said something about the piano, like whether it is an upright or a grand. It is probably worth having a technician look at it.

From the description, it sounds like what we call "blocking hammers". It can happen for a number of reasons, but when the jack doesn't trip, it pushes the hammer right onto the strings and sits there.

The joy of diagnostics - make a guess, then test to see if that is the problem and if not, go to the next guess.... repeat until the root of the problem is discovered. Then formulate a solution...

Excellent advice! Customers will describe a piano problem, and when I see the piano it is often something entirely different than what I had pictured. There is no set of words that can match seeing the whole action train and what is happening to cause a problem.

DIY is not really the focus of this forum (although some posters will offer ideas). That's more of a youtoob thing.
