    hello and thank you for your comment.

    No it doesnt click. the only lights also when i switch it on is the floppy drive light and the display screen. it is as if it didnt start up completely , or maybe no power to the rest of keyboard.

    It happened while i was playing, and suddenly it froze en the sound kept going like a broken record. then when i switched the keyboard of and on again it wouldnt work. i tried holding the demo button also while i then switched it on , to try and reset it to factory settings. but nothing happening again.

First thing is to Isolate the keyboard and then take out the Hard Drive and restart the keyboard. If that doesn't work then that's the first problem eliminated. You can do a Factory Reset on the keyboard. I'm not too sure on this keyboard but mostly it's Turn on the keyboard and simultaniously hold a certain button(s) or Key(s) [normally at the top end]. This info will be in the Manual.You could look at the troubleshooting page in the Manual also. Other than that at this time I can't help any further.......Good luck!

    Hi IrishRon40. If you put a floppy disc in the drive, does the Drive click as if reading the Disc?

    If so, have you the operating system on floppies to re-load? If distant memory serves me right several of them.....

    good luck!

    Hi IrishRon40. To reinstall the operating system press the STOP/START Button when you switch the keyboard on and see if the program installer program comes up on the screen. If so you should then be able to proceed with your floppies. Good luck!

Why won't my clavinova clp 150 play?

Hi, Could be a lot of different things.

Does it play through headphones?
If so this implies an amplifier issue.
Does it play when you press the demo button - if so it could be a keyboard issue.

Carry out a factory reset by holding down highest note whilst turning on. Watch screen does it report anything?

Let me know what it says and I will try and help.

Yamaha 9000pro, Ps is ok but unit will not boot

You may need to perform a factory reset operation. Turn power off, hold down the DEMO button and turn the keyboard back on. The
screen should display 'Setup is initialising'. This will disappear after a few seconds and the screen will display its default. If that does not work you may need to re-install program disks, I think you should have 6 of them

It sounds like you have a part overheating and failing, then cooling off and starting again. i would take it into the nearest Yamaha repair facility or contact your local authorized repair to come take a look before it goes out of warranty.

I'VE A YAMAHA PSR S700. The problem is with it's screen. Whenever i start playing, the screen fades and then it comes and it goes and vice versa. This occurs almost two - three days a week. There...

Likely a connection to the backlight is being broken. Tap on the unoit and see if it pops back on. Illuminate screen with a flashlight and see if the characters can be seen when screen is faded. If they can, then the backlight is the problem... IF NOT then the display may be bad... This has been a problem and if you are under warranty, excersise it immediately... else replacement of the display is relatively expensive.

Yamaha Motif 6 froze, tried re-booting screen is stuck on the initial page "Now Checking plug-in board..." Also unplugged the keyboard.

This is a long shot... If you have an add-in option board it may have become dislodged from the socket. If you move your keyboard this may be what happened. In any case it needs to be opened and look for loose cables, board, OR if you have a hard drive, the drive may have failed. The software in these units isn't smart enough to give the user any details of the failure/hangup.

I have a Fender Frontman 212r amp. The problem seems to be when I put the volume upto past 4/10 [40%] The amp gives out an awful crackling sound and power light etc flickers on and off. I have had the map...

When i turn on my 212R it turns on in drive channel. if footswith is plugged in, then it turns on in the clean channel, but after switching in drive it is impossible to switch it back in clean channel. What could be wrong? Swith position doesnt change anything and it seems like switch is OK.

I have Tyro I and II myself.

If somehow the registration is being bumped up or down during playing that would do it. VERIFY all the settings for the external pedal inputs regarding levels and function. Some of these can be set to do more than one thing. As a result, a pedal connected to the three jacks MIGHT be used for sustain and also triggering a step in registration number that is unwanted.

One needs to analyze the state of the unit when this happens...this should be possible UNLESS the whole thing including the data entry and display is freezing.

With the thousands of internal settings that are possible, it will be hard for us to give a definitive answer.

If you can afford to lose user created stuff, do a complete factory reset of the unit.

I have a Yamaha YPG-525. Everything is working except the LCD screen. It turns on, but doesn't display anything... I had this problem once before when I didn't use the keyboard for a while, but it ended...

I have the same problem, mine is Yamaha YPG-625. This seems to be a common problem with Yamaha keyboards. I opened the 100 screws in the back, separated the main board from the display unit which is under it if you flip the keyboard upside down, to verify if there was any loose wires, nothing of the sort.
It is so frustrating, the keyboard is working fine but it is hard to navigate because the display is not functioning. Yamaha should do a recall as this is obviously something wrong with the keyboard happenning to a lot of people
