Question about Yamaha Full-Size Keyboard
I recently transported my yamaha clavinova to my apartment. I was as careful as possible during moving, but damage may have occurred during the move, it was also laid on it's side during the drive. Once i was done moving it, I plugged it in, pressed the on button, and all of the lights came on and sound could be heard; essentially it was working just fine, so i turned it off and walked away. I came back about an hour later, pressed the on button, and the lights turned on for about 2 seconds and then it shut off. So i pressed the power button off and then back on again and the same thing happened- the lights came on and then turned off after a few seconds. After about 10 times of this happening, now no lights come on after pressing the power button. The two main fuses have been checked and look absolutely fine. I have the piano open and it does not look like any components are damaged. The on button works, so it is not as simple as that either. Please let me know if you have any ideas on what the problem could be. or if you know of any typical components that could break in a move, or the most problematic components on the piano after several years of use. Thanks!
Paul, inside of the Clavinpva at the rear where the power cable connects to the board. there is a 124 volt 1.25 amp fuse. the old type that is a glass cylinder with silver ends. it's an easy fix and will cost about $3.00 for a pack of four. You have to9 take out all of the screws on the bottom of the piano in order for the top to slide off, but you can do it in about 15 minutes!

There are flexible cables that connect the keys to the main electronics. The connectors for those cables sometimes age poorly..
It is fixable. But dont "get taken" on a repair.
If it's just resoldering a few points,it shouldnt be more than $100.00
