Check the RH C-D trill key linkage isn't holding the top joint C-D trill key open - there should be some double action in both the linkage and the trill beam on the top joint. Also check the C-C# trill key is closing and there's also some free play in the linkage.

Make sure RH1 is closing and not being held open by the link to the G# pad cup or by the con bar on the side of the top joint. RH1 should have double action both before and after it operates the con bar - the initial double action is to ensure the top joint Bb and C keys are closed whilst RH1 is open, then some more double action just before RH1 is fully closed (after the top joint Bb and C keys are fully open) and also check there's a gap between the top end of the con bar and the top joint surface when RH1 is held closed.

I'm not sure which key you mean by the 'D key'. If you're talking main action fingerplates, then label them after the finger that operates them (LH1, LH2, LH3, RH1, RH2, RH3) as calling them by a note name can be inaccurate and vague at best. Technically speaking, the note D (xxx|xxx) issues from the tonehole operated by the low C key and not from RH3 (which is where E issues from).
