Question about Yamaha Full-Size Keyboard

1 Answer

I just connected my Yamaha DGX-220 to my computer and tried to play a merengue midi file through the keyboard, and the speakers made a some loud popping noises on the drum voices. And now the keyboard plays only poppy noises. Already returned the keyboard to the default factory settings but the problem persists.... the speakers seem to be broken. The keyboard is out of warranty and with today's technology it's usually cheaper to replace than to fix! Any better solution than throwing it into the landfill?

    It does seem to be the speakers, because the earphones work fine! I guess I won't throw it away yet... I'll just have to use the earphones all the time.

    And now all of a sudden it works again. What was my solution? I unplugged it and replugged it. I guess just pressing the power button was not enough. The other possibility is that perhaps the plug had come loose and the keyboard was trying to run on the not so new batteries.

Sell it to a musical instrument repair shop for parts. You can get some money to get a new one.

Yamaha DGX 220 keyboard all E and Bb keys above middle C will not play


Try unplugging it and also remove batteries if it has any. Then plug it back in and everything should be back to factory settings. I don't know what to to beyond that.

Yamaha DGX 220 All E and Bb keys above middle C will not play. All others OK


Just a shot in the dark but a lot of keyboards allow for splitting the keyboard in half or even in quarters to assign multiple sounds... have you tried a total reset? Or explore the manual for setting up a split keyboard. Might help.

How do I download files from my yamaha portable grand DGX-230 to my computer


To download/transfer files to computer, you need 2 softwares from yamaha website. USB MIDI drivers and MUSICSOFT DOWNLOADER.
Install drivers first,and then Musicsoft Downloader.
Connect keyboard to PC/notebook by USB cable.
Run Musicsoft Downloader.
If you click "Electronic Musical Instrument" in the Musicsoft Downloader display.and then "System Drive", a file named "08PG76BUP" will appear in the lower right corner of the Musicsoft Downloader display. This is the backup file that will transfer to computer.
Usually yamaha came with CD-ROM that contain divers and softwares + user manual,so you don't need to download.
I hope this helps.
Regards.

Which midi cable or USB midi cable should I use for Yamaha DGX 520 model.


It doesn't use a USB to MIDI adapter (such as the UX-16.) It has an onboard MIDI controller and uses a standard USB A-B cable. You just need to install the driver from the CD-ROM or here, and plug it in. You can get the manual from the same page or here. Setup is on page 99.

How can I send recordings to my laptop? I have a usb connector and i want to connect my portable grand to my laptop but the laptop does not detect the piano and i don't know what to press on the piano...


Hi mjaynneb,

I could be wrong here but I have a number of keyboards and the USB connection is usually for Midi control from software like Cubase and the like. If by recording you mean recording Audio then I think you'll find that it won't be possible using the USB port.

Midi is great and I use it a lot. It enables you to arrange music using your computer. Also you can record the music you play on the Keyboard on the computer as Midi. This means that the computer can play back through your arranger what you just played. Bear in mind though that Midi is purely numbers that represent notes, velocities and note duration so is not actually audio.

My keyboards have the ability to record to SD card or a Hard Drive, however if this is not a feature of your arranger then probably your best bet for recording audio from it is by using the Audio out ports of your arranger and using a connecting lead to a good low noise sound card on your computer. As you are using a laptop you can find external usb sound cards/interfaces so that should do fine. Then you could probably use something like Audacity which is free software, to record to a wav file.

I hope this helped.
Kind Regards

Where can i find windows 7 x 64 drivers please help mee !!!


Your Yamaha DGX 203 Portable Keyboard - USB-MIDI Driver Version 1.2.2 ie. for OS Win9x/ME.

Yahama site does not have the Win7(x64) Drivers ie. USB-MIDI for your Keyboard Model DGX-203

But you can try the USB-MIDI Driver Version 3.1.0 for Windows(R) 7/Vista/XP 64bit for Model DGX-520 @ http://usa.yamaha.com/products/musical-instruments/keyboards/digitalkeyboards/dgx_series/dgx-520/?mode=model

I can't assured you that it will works on your system. Since your Keyboard is no longer in production, I doubt Yahama will provide you with the official USB-MIDI drivers for your Keyboard even you requested for it.

I guess this is an option you can try and hope it works & good luck.

Regards.

I have yamaha PSR-i425 keyboard.can i conect it with my pc to play midi files stored in computer memory?


Yes. You will need to have a MIDI interface on your OC and also select in the sounds control panel of windows that you are using the external synth. The MIDI will expect the PSR to respond to the "general MIDI" assignments.

I am not getting any sound from my Yamaha DGX 200,


From Yamaha DGX 200 Manual
  • Q-There is no sound even when the keyboard is played or when a song is being played back.
  • A-Check that nothing is connected to the PHONES/OUTPUT jack on the rear panel. When a set of headphones is plugged into this jack, no sound is output. Check the Local Control on/off. (See page 69.)
