Ok, solved this problem by visiting roland U.S. site as the help offered in this country is useless. The instructions given by email would not have worked even after the update was installed. Luckily, there are instructions that come with the download. If you have same problem as me go to

and update the opperating system on the RC-50 to RC-50 System Update Version 1.01.

Then hold loop sync and phrase 2 button (think it was phrase 2) to change it to sound priority mode. Then it will play back correctly what you recorded on the first loop, rather than missing the first beat.

Am v.happy I have found this, as after much searching I can't find any other loopers out there that offer 3 seperate loop tracks and the ability to switch between them effectively. Plus, it's a very convenient size, better than a load of rackmounted stuff to haul around.


Another problem..

When hitting the reverse switch ( I assigned both external footswitch and the onboard Tempo pedal to reverse) the change is not instanteaneous. There is a second or so delay before it plays in reverse. Not a problem for most, I suppose, but I have a piece that switches rythmicaly between playing forward and reverse which means hitting a pedal in time and reverse/forwards changing immediately. I think they could do with another software update to solve this. Now I have to keep room in my enormous pedal board for the old rc-20, as that does the reverse as it should - when you hit the flippin switch!

Request directly from manufacturer

Go here on Youtube and see if any of the videos contents are close to your unit.

Behringer Music | Answered on Nov 03, 2018

I doubt there is compatibility.

If it's worth it to keep using this unit, consider buying a good-enough cheap PC based computer with Windows XP. XP is no longer supported, but it's still useful, and it;'s one of the most stable OS's they ever released.

What is your question?

Music | Answered on Nov 03, 2018

If you've set it up correctly and FX still don't work, unless you want to keep using it as-is, I'd suggest looking for a used replacement on Ebay etc. They sell for under $70, and although I doubt these can be repaired, it wouldn't be worth it anyway.

Fostex Music | Answered on Nov 03, 2018

Unless you are a tech, trained to repair this type of gear, I would strongly advise you to have it repaired by such a tech. Don't risk damaging the keyboard beyond repair. Spend the money.

You can use the Line In jack, but you will probably need to use a mic preamp to raise the mic output sufficiently. You can try using an inexpensive mic from an amateur karaoke system or Guitar Hero etc. If that mic has no 1/8 inch mini phone plug, you can look for an adaptor, or have a tech type person set the mic cable up for you. If you want better quality, borrow or buy a professional vocal mic which uses an XLR cable and adapt the cable to plug into the 1/8 inch Line In jack on the keyboard. As I said, if the mic level is not loud enough, you can use a mic preamp, such as the ART Tube Mic Pre, which you can find used, or on a clear-out for maybe $25 to $35. Use a cable with a 1/4 inch connector on one end and a 1/8 inch connector on the other, to connect the mic pre output to the keyboard Line in. Plug the mic into the XLR input of the mic preamp. This will work 100%. Just adjust the mic preamp level controls carefully.

no but please enlighten me.

There are 17 screws on the underside of the keyboard that need to be removed. The base cover can then be removed. This gives access to the keyframe assembly which can be removed.

rubber contact strip requires replacement

Yamaha NP 30 76... | Answered on Nov 03, 2018

Hi, i think you can. You can go to any of the Yamaha companies around you area and explain to them the problem of the keyboard. They will give you good and quality replacement part for your Keyboard.

Make sure you go to only Yamaha company to avoid getting a wrong part for your Keyboard.Avoid road siderepairsforissue like this,it's more complicated to handle

I guess that will do.

Thanks for using fixya...

Yamaha has the user's guides available as PDFs for most of their instruments on their site: . Enter PSR-6000 or select Pianos & Keyboards > Portable Keyboards > PSR-6000 and then press Select.

The link to the manual will display below the search area.

I hope this helps.

Dead keys on Yamaha PSR e413 keyboard: Flip keyboard upside down, remove cover screws (use marked cardboard template to remember where they came out), spray suspect key-contacts with fast-drying contact cleaner, (usually a PCB with a matrix of contacts under keys), re-assemble base cover, wiggle faulty keys as far as possible to 'scrub' any dirt or oxidization. If this cleaning trick doesn't work, get a pro to check it.

What driver do you want to install?

Yamaha PSR-E413... | Answered on Nov 03, 2018

Is there a pattern to the wrong notes ( eg all up a semitone ? )
If so you could have altered the tuning.

Try a master reset:

Hold down top key whilst turning on. This will reset to factory setup.

See attached for individual reset procedures:
