Hi Rusty, the current situation is this. I have managed to stop the intermittent switching off of the Tyros, but after putting the regulator board back I found that I had lost the display on the screen. All the lights and buttons work (supplied from ribbon cable from Motherboard. the screen has a dull backlight but does not complete the usual logo and then screen information. I cannot see if there is a separate power lead to the screen at this stage. I have not yet removed the coverplate (PNR) to check for displaced cable/ribbon because these have not been disturbed. Is it possible that a ground connection is causing this?(eg not connecting) I'm clutching at straws the manual I have does not give a wiring diagram
Well yes that is the area that I suspect, there are 3 x 47uF capacitors on this board as well as the three Power transistors and I'm wondering if one of the capacitors might be at fault there are two kinds on the board Electrolytic 47uF and 3 x 0.1 ceramic thinking now of doing some substitution as I only have a multimeter for testing. Any thoughts?
Thanks Rusty I'll do that. I'm UK based by the way, so will contact Yamaha UK at Milton Keynes to find out the cost of replacement regulator board.
can i get back to you later?
Ok Thanks bookmarked.
currently trying to locate a regulator board, can find only 1 on web and it is from a company called "Keyboard Kountry" based somewhere in USA. so could be a few days before I hear any more, but will get back to you when I have news
Good morning Rusty.
At this time I'm still waiting for a reply from a supplier to get a replacement regulator.Another thing I could try is to take the one out of my other Tyros and see if that does the trick (then at least I would know for sure that the reg was/ wasn't the cause of the problem). It is frustrating when you can't get a company to reply for several days.
I'll get back to you as soon as I have any news.
Latest... tried the reg board in my other tyros... it works fine so now I'm looking for something else that is causing me to have no display swapped the 32 pin ribbon cable, and after a couple of tries hey presto everything is working. I may try to get a standby 32pin ribbon cable from China (yamaha uk don't stock them) do you know if they are available elsewhere?
Thanks for all your help so far
Be assured of a good feedback.
