Resolved Question:

I have a Yamaha NP31S keyboard. A few weeks ago I accidentally plugged in a different power lead and the power went on initially but then there was a flash and the power went out. Sincethen I have tried the keyboard with the correct lead and still have no power. In desperation I put batteries in but still have no power. Is this repairable as I've only had the instrument for about 18 months, and it would break my heart to no longer be able to use it.

Thanks for getting back to me. You were offline when I responded earlier.

Do you know the voltage and polarity of the incorrect power lead that was fitted?

Customer: replied 7 months ago.
Thank you for your reply. I had to go out and have only just returned home. I don't know the polarity of the incorrect lead. The voltage is input 220-240 volts, output 30 volts. I hope this helps.
Expert:  Pete replied 7 months ago.

Ok, depending on what incorrect lead was used, it may have caused irreparable damage to the internal circuitry of the keyboard. This is because the keyboard is designed for use with a particular voltage and polarity power supply adapter.

Incorrect voltage or polarity will damage the sensitive internal electronic components.

Since the keyboard is not functioning with the correct power lead or with batteries, it seems that damage has been caused and it will require a repair.

You can take it to your local Yamaha music dealer, or contact Yamaha directly to arrange a repair:
