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

Where can I get a manual for portable grand D6X640 Yamaha piano


Do you mean the DGX-640? To my knowledge, Yamaha doesn't have a D6X line of keyboards. Most of Yamaha's manuals are available from their support page: http://download.yamaha.com/top/?site=usa.yamaha.com&language=en . The DGX-640 support page is http://download.yamaha.com/search/product/?language=en&site=usa.yamaha.com&category_id=16084&product_id=1056822 . Scroll down to find the owner's manual in various languages and other documents. Yamaha provides javascript links to the manuals on the site; these do not resolve to specific direct links in my browser history.

I hope this helps.

I require a complete set of fixing bolts for a DGX-620 Yamaha electric keyboard which have been mislaid following dismantling. Can you advise how I might obtain a replacement set please.


If you contact Yamaha keyboards and tell them the model of your keyboard they can tell you exactly what part numbers they are and tell you how to order them. Here is the link: yamaha24X7.com.

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.
