Tyros Power Supply Unit Help
« on: November 17, 2010, 08:52:45 PM »
Hello All,

Im so glad that this site and forum exists. This is my first post here and Id like some help.

I purchased my Tyros 1 while I was living in the United States. Since recently I have had to move my residence to India.

The problem is that the Tyros I purchased says 120V on the underside, whereas in India the electricity supply is 220 ~ 240 V @ 60Hz.

I tried the step down voltage converter but carrying a 2kg (4 pound) transformer is an impediment I would like to do without.

At present most of the keyboards coming out have a universal voltage range 110 to 240 V.

My question is

1. Does the Tyros have the same rating?

2. if not, can I get the power pack replaced with a local matching unit? If so how much do you think it would cost?

2. Iis there another alternative?

Thank you very much for your time in helping me out.

Rohseq:

Welcome to the forum. We will do out best to assist.

I sold my USA Tyros 1 to friend in Germany. Before I shipped it, he checked and determined that indeed it did have a universal power supply. I do not think it was marked as such. Can anyone else confirm this?

You might check http://www.global.yamaha.com/support/contact.php for a local Yamaha office/service station.

Michael

Rohseq,

The service manual for the Tyros 1 shows only one power supply, but sever different power cords.

I think if you can find a proper power cord for your area, you may be in luck.

BTW - welcome to the forum.

Thanks for all the input. Im seriously tempted to just plug it in and see what happens.

Any comments?

Rohan,

I will say electricity works at the speed of light - it won't take long to tell if you made a mistake.  ;)

I would not have the courage.  :o :o :o :o

I would think you could purchase one of those backup power supplies, such as APC, that has
a 110 volt output and just use that would be the safer way to go.

Thanks a lot Gershon for your valuable time and effort.

I already have a similar unit and they weigh a ton. plus it does not fit in my keyboard bag, which can be a nuisance especially at airports.

I am interested to know if the internal power unit can handle a universal voltage and ampere range (like most electronic products now).

If not, can I get it changed to a local one.

My local Yamaha Service Center in Mumbai India is as helpful as a baboon in mating season.

Regards,

the secret is uncovered
The Tyros 5 is 120-240v...
Even if on the sticker there is 120v only!
at least my unit is :)
