Question about Yamaha DD65 Portable Digital Drums

1 Answer

I am thinking of buying a yamaha dd-65 portable digital drum from America. But I live in Sydney, Australia so am assuming I can't use it here (because of the different voltages)? If I were to buy the Australian version of the adaptor it uses, would it work perfectly or will there still be voltage problems?

If you use the right adapter for the voltages it will work fine. The other option is to use a transformer that steps the power down to 110 to 120 and use the supplied adapter. The unit takes very little power.

Why does my yamaha mm8 doesn't have any sound? I try the headphones and there's no sound there either.

Assuming the volume is turned up, you can try initializing the keyboard (page 35 of the manual), but that will erase all stored backup data and reset to initial default settings. You might wantt to call Yamaha directly to discuss their suggestions. Here's their support link-

Check that you don't have MIDI echo on in the DAW. If the MIDI data is echoed, it MAY be merging with the outgoing and when MIDI signals are merged in pieces instead of whole messages the data is corrupted. If you can look at the data stream with software, you should be able to spot the problem. Another problem might be excessive latency of the recording software. Make sure you do not have antivirus or antispyware programs running or network running. The Roland will spill data at much less rate and while the dd55 may overrun the DAW the Roland might not be able to. The key to the problem is to analyze the MIDI data stream that is being recorded.

Where can i order replacement keys from for Digital Piano.

Go to Yamaha America by phone in California: (888)-892-6242 ask for "parts" Have your model number and serial number ready and which keys are bad. I assume you are talking the keys are showing mechanical damage, as an electrical problem like contacts requires different parts to repair.

Make sure you have the ORIGINAL power adapter for this unit. It should say PA150 on it and provide 12 volts at 1.5 amps (1500ma). I am not sure of the polarity, but if the part number matches, you have the right one.

When i hit some of the pads, the system seems to reset and all the sounds are also reset, for example when i hit it with a bit of force, pleae help

I can only assume you have one of Yamaha's DD drum units as you did not mention the model or anything.

ASSUMING that, first check the condition of the power connection. If the vibration breaaks the connection that would cause your symptoms.
