Yamaha prefers to MAKE the instruments rather than conducting repair schools... they may have some very specialized schools for individual types when first introduced. With the situation in Japan right now such classes would be cancelled I am sure. Instrument repair is so specialized other than basic piano repair/tuning that you will find few if any courses. For piano repair you might want to search YouTube for videos. For organs and keyboards, detailed electronic knowledge and the service manuals are what we have to work with. You need both experience in digital and analog plus test equipment including oscilloscopes and signal generators as a start.

27439 nordheimer by heintzman piano how old is it


    The Nordheimer Piano & Organ Company was established by brothers Samuel and Abraham Nordheimer in 1844. The firm was located at 122 King Street, Toronto. For the first 2 decades, the firm worked as importers and retailers of pianos, organs and melodeons. In about 1866 they built their first pianos with much success. The firm continued to grow and flourish during the rest of the 19th Century, building a full line of uprights, squares, and reed organs. In 1886, The Nordheimer Brothers went into partnership with Gerhard Heintzman of Toronto and opened the Lansdowne Piano Company, Ltd. In 1890, Nordheimer built a new, state-of-the-art factory in East Toronto. In 1927, Heintzman purchased the Nordheimer name and continued to produce Nordheimer pianos until the 1960's.

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-

My CVP-7 sounds a little off in some of the settings. Would replacing the motherboard help?


Replacing the motherboard sounds extreme for some of the setting just soundingg off. I would suggest doing a reboot before doing anything else. I wasn't able to find it online, but if you contact Yamaha, I'm sure they can help. Here is a link to their contact page-

My yamaha ydp-160 sounds like my pedal is stuck down. All keys are sustaining all notes. Is there an easy fix?


On SOME Yamaha pianos, there is an electrolytic capacitor 1mfd/50v that becomes leaky and causes this. On those with the particular main board the capcitor is at location C94. On other pianos there are other caps that bypass the wire from the pedals that are ceramic. Likely one of these has shorted. There is also a possibility that the pedal contact has shorted. Test for this by unplugging the pedal cable. If it still sustains, then problem is internal. Unless you are adept at electronics this is NOT a DIY repair.

I require a user manual for a Yamaha PSR 6000 Organ to down load


Yamaha has the user's guides available as PDFs for most of their instruments on their site: http://download.yamaha.com/top/?site=usa.yamaha.com&language=en . 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.
