Yamaha digital piano keys
Depending where you are, you gotta check with your Yamaha distributor, or else on Amazon. Then get a tech to take the thing apart (ugh) and replace them keys.
Good luck from Venezuela....

The left speaker of my
If you are smelling a burnt smell, then you have probably burnt out the speaker coil. You would need to take both speakers to a local repair centre in your area and have them checked out. They may be able to repair the speaker or may have to replace it.

Does Allen-Heath Mix Wizard 16:2 (first generation) require Tip-Ring-Sleeve for Aux sends?
You should use TRS since that is balanced just like XLRs.
Especially for long wire runs. This is if you go for XLR on the other end =
Pin 1= Sleeve
Pin 2= Tip (HOT)
Pin 3= Ring
Normally, in US equipment, 2 & 3 are inverted (3 is HOT), but you got British here, they switch the HOT pin on the XLR to pin 2.
That means that if you run this unit with US speakers your signal will be out of phase. Be careful there... I have lived this with AH boards before.
You can also use normal unbalanced cable for short runs, but I suggest keeping to standards.

Ch. 1 No sound, Level Set LED on
This is a tough one because your LED for the Level Set is Illuminated, meaning that it sees a signal. With that being the case, the signal from the mic is getting from the input jack to the channel strip, but is not passing through to the preamp for that channel. So....either the channel strip is faulty, or the circuit going to the preamp is bad. As the other channels are probably ok, the trouble is most likely in the channel strip for Channel 1. Definitely have this looked at by a tech familiar with Behringer boards. If you can function without that channel, it will be cheaper than the repair, as the design of your board prohibits swapping out channel banks. I wish you luck and success with this issue.

My guitar amplifier cuts out at any volume..
Symptoms that take a while to happen often are caused by something getting hot. Open it up and try to find something getting hot. That probably won't be the faulty component but it will point to the area that's causing the problem.
BE CAREFUL INSIDE A TUBE AMP! THERE'S A LOT OF HIGH VOLTAGE IN THERE. DON'T TOUCH ANYTHING METAL.

Hi out there, I am trying find the correct age of my Classic Gibson Les Paul and am struggling. it's serial number is 064336. Any help would be great fully appreciated. Thank you
This is actually not an easy question to answer a Gibson (as you may already know) has used multiple numbering schemes..Your guitar may be a 2000... This is from Gibson's site: "Les Paul Classic: This model features an ink stamped serial number with no "MADE IN USA" (just as we used on the original 1952-1960 Les Pauls). Most will be 5 to 6 digits in length, but the earliest examples feature 4 digit serial numbers. There should be a space after the 1st digit with the 4 and 5 digit serial numbers, and no space with the 6 digit numbers. The 1st digit indicates the year of manufacture for the 4 & 5 digit serial numbers, these were used from 1989-1999. The 1st and 2nd indicate the year of manufacture for the 6 digit serial numbers which we've been using since 2000. Examples - 9 xyx = 1989 (4 digit number beginning with "9" used only in 1989) 0 xxyx = 1990 9 xyxx = 1999 00xyxx = 2000 05xyxx = 2005" http://www.gibson.com/Support/Serial-Number-Search.aspx/ Alternatively many people have gotten the best answer by calling Gibson directly: USA: 1-800-4GIBSON HTH!
