Yamaha Computers & Internet - Recent Questions, Troubleshooting & Support

I would guess either the device is faulty, the USB port is faulty or there is a software glitch.
It used to happen to me a lot and it was usually a software problem - I can't prove it but I believe it was a conflict between the operating system and Nero, the cd burning programme.

Such things hardly happen since I stopped trying to use Nero. Software conflicts weren't unusual with low cost programmes which would "borrow" bits of Windows but fail to give them back when the programme was uninstalled.
The easiest way forward was to format the drive and reinstall the operating system.

So to confirm he connected power directly to the battery springs?
What voltage did he connect to those springs?
If it was more than 12v you have almost certainly done some internal damage.
As best you may have blown a few diodes which are there to protect from small voltage overruns - at worst probably burnt out the motherboard.

If you do not know how to check these it is probably advisable to take to a repair centre.

So what are you getting? Power light, screen display, just no sound?

Try pressing a demo tune - does that work?
If it does then you may have a problem with the connector from keybed to motherboard.

If no sound just try connecting the disc drive up again - if this then makes it work it is probably hanging during the start up procedure.

Report back if you need to and we can try something else.

yamaha dx100 reset. Press voice switches 1 and 2 while turning power switch on. Display will say test entry?. press the plus/yes button. This will reinitialize all memory to factory settings. Also the lithium ram backup battery voltage will be displayed as check level with a number representing the battery voltage. The number will be 10 times the actual battery voltage. A new battery will display 33 representing 3.3 volts. If your reading is below 22 then your battery is shot and will need replacing and if you turn the unit off it will probably get a scrambled memory again.

Guessing that some people think a Tyros 1 is a PC or something.

If the Tyros goes blank screen and all the lights go out then it is most likely the REG board (regulators) that provide the 5v and 3.3v. This overheats and the devices shutdown. Quite often this is cured with a restart on more serious cases the regulators need replacing. As they are cheep it is best to replace all while the unit is apart. I am just about to do this repair on a Tyros I purchased the other day.

AW4416 Users - HELP needed!
I think my hard drive crashed or is in trauma! It 'froze up' so I shut it down. When I try to restart it it never gets past the "Initializing the Recorder Section" window. The HD's red light is on without any intermittent blinking.

Is there a trick to get it to boot up so I can back some stuff up?

Last year when I had lots of stuff on the HD I had occasional freeze-ups but it always came back. Then when that project was finished I got all of it off the HD into a backup and the AW has been smooth for more than a year. Recorded a CD for a local string Quartet and everything was good. When that wrapped up I wiped the HD again and started a CD for myself. Not a lot of songs or tracks yet but some stuff I really don't want to lose if possible.
Hard lesson to learn.

Bill from PA, are you out there? any other AW4416 users?

the AW user forum (socialentropy.com) seems dead! I've gotten some great help there!

Mukhang ang iyong plug ay carbon fouled. Marahil ang iyong pinaghalong gasolina ay masyadong mayaman. Subukan ang pagsasaayos ng iyong karburator.

Did it ever work? Have you tried more than one input on the Yamaha? Will the BlueRay play through a different system? Seems unlikely that both the L & R cables are bad. If it's an optical cable, have you ruled out a bad cable?
