Question about Yamaha Full-Size Keyboard

1 Answer

Yamaha DGX-620 blank screen or screen with vertical lines

Apparently I'm not the only person with this problem. It's gotten progressively worse. Basically, I have nothing on the screen except for a few tightly-packed vertical lines. Has anyone had any success fixing this problem? It's a 2 1/2 year old item that I bought at Costco. My guess is that there isn't any warranty or 'take it back' priveleges at this late date. Thanks for any input/advice.

I`ve had a similar problem with a Korg that I use at the club and on gigs, I don`t know whether Yamaha use a similar method or not but when I stripped mine down, I found that the glass LCD panel is connected to the PCB via a ribbon cable which gets sandwiched between the PCB and the LCD panel when screwed up, It`s not soldered or hard wired to the PCB, It was producing intermittent connections between the uPC and the display panel where parts of letters and symbols were missing. When I removed the panel, I found that it was oxidized so I used some switch cleaner which doesn`t leave a residue (Don`t use lubricant or WD40 as this will destroy the LCD panel by penetrating between the layers of Liquid Crystal rendering it useless) and gently cleaned the contacts on both the LCD and PCB panels (Don`t spray the panel or this could penetrate) by spraying a small amount onto a tissue then gently wiping this into the nooks and crannies with a nail brush then wiping off the excess with another tissue. I`ve had no problems since, (touch wood). Please use extreme caution when working with these panels as they are dedicated to your keyboard and therefore extremely expensive to replace. If yours has an extension lead from the LCD panel to a plug on the PCB, it should be a lot easier to clean this one cable where it enters the plug on the PCB than mine was, but still use extreme care. Best of luck, Ian

Blue LCD screen


I had the exact problem, mine was a YPG 535 brand new in box I put everything together with stand and FC4 pedal. When i got ready to play just a blue screen and none of the red lights came on and no sound, I notice when i was messing with the on and standby button hopeing it would work the speakers would make a popping noise I personly thought it was a manufacturing defect.....i'm sending it back to have it replace. I never had problems with yamaha products but seems like more and more defects are happing with newer portable grand series!

Hi. My boss br 1600 will n ot start. I turn on the power source and it will blink for a split second and then nothing. I checked for loose connections but everything seems ok. Any suggestions?


I have this problem with mine. I've did some research and with the boss br 600 this problem can arise quite often .it's caused by a faulty power diode apparently except in that case I've never heard ofrom the screen blinking at all (which my 1600 also does) I wonder I'd this problem can be the same for a br 600 as the br 600

How do you change your chord set-up on an autoharp and is there any reason not to set it up like a piano keyboard (C-D-E-F-G-A-B)? Thanks in advance.


An autoharp makes chords by muting all the strings except those that make the chord. There would be 2 ways to change the chord structure. 1) retune the strings knowing which ones will be muted by each key so that the result is another but valid chord or 2) make your own "keys" so that they mute different strings.
The tuning of an autoharp is selected to allow you to play songs as long as they are in the right key or two. If you set it "like a piano" as you suggest, you could play those chords but not the chord sequences that make up most songs. Most songs revolve around sequences or intervals such as the popular 1 - 4 - 5 blues progressions. Most music has some predictable progressions and that's why the autoharp is tuned the way it is.
You can always experiment with different and odd tunings but if your goal is to play already written songs, I'd stick with the normal tunings - there are alternates.

Estey chord organ giving off sharp metallic smell


The organ is basically a harmonica gated by keys. It has reeds and a fan.

I would open it up and clean everything. It is possible a mouse has gotten in there and they stink including their messes for quite a while.

You might need to lube the fan.

Fender Rumble 100 210 pop noise then hum after strong low e note


I just fixed my bass amp with a similar problem last week: the problem is related to a loose connection on the PCB board (likely).
A bass amp is a rough place for circuitry: the low rumble and power shake a bass amp more than a guitar amp.
In my case, the power transistors needed to be re-soldered and then the grounding bolts and screws needed to be removed and cleaned because the connection was bad. Remember that when two different metals needed for an electric connection are toughing, there is the likelyhood that corrosion WILL happen.
My bass amp did basically the same thing yours did: sounded good at low volumes, but at higher volumes it would act up.
In short, there is nothing you can do (unless you are a repair person): you need to take it to a local music shop and have a tech fix the intermittant contact problem: someone who knows what they are doing should only take an hour at most.

Hope that helps!

Yamaha YPG625 screen shows only vertical lines


I brought the keyboard into a local service technician. He told me that he had to remove about 50 screws but the solution was simple. He unplugged and reconnected the ribbon connector. It apparently was not making good contact.
