Touch Screen Protector
« on: November 20, 2017, 01:53:57 AM »
Hi Folks,

Now I have my Genos and have been setting it up over the past couple of days, installing new firmware, registrations and making new Playlists.  I have been using the touch screen a lot. It does show my finger marks clearly after every session so I clean it with the same cleaner I use for my specs (dry). However, there are screen protectors available for Tablets, I-Pads, mobile phones etc.  So I would hope that some company will soon make a screen protector that will fit the Genos. Any ideas out there in music land?  :) :)

Cheers

Grant

There are tones of 9" touchscreen protectors for tablets out there, the only question is...will a protector make the screen less responsive? (than it already is).

Bonjour

D'Après notre démonstrateur du Genos, il est possible de nettoyer l'écran avec un chiffon micro-fibre pendant qu'il est allumé, pendant le jeu, le tactile ne fonctionnent qu' avec le doigts. À vérifier !

Hello, hello.

According to our Genos demonstrator, it is possible to clean the screen with a micro-fiber cloth while it is on, during the game, the touch screen only works with your fingers. Check it out!

Not true; It is a resistiv touch screen and needs pressure to function.
You can make selections with neather object, like a pen, a wooden stick, .. (non of this is recommanded).

It's not like an ipad's capacitiv screen. There you need a conductor to work (like fingers, special pen's, ...)

The screen of the Genos works fine with a "stylus pen" , works fine for text input .

Have to say, sorry slightly off topic, but considering the dated, cheaper resistive technology I'm very impressed with how well the screen responds and works. Much better than the one I had on a CVP709. I can't honestly imagine a screen protector would work well though.
Just don't mention Genos USB drive letter assignments :)

Obviously I would not put on a screen protector on my Genos unless it was recommend by Yamaha and I do use a micro soft cloth to clean it.

Cheers

Oh, pardon ...

Mauvaise traduction,  l'écran réponds avec le doigts ... oui.  Mais pas au chiffon pour le nettoyage  pendant le jeu ! A vérifier ( je vous laisse traduire avec votre outil préféré  )

I agree about how responsive it is. Much better than even the Yamaha Montage resistive screen.

Just a question, but I thought that the Tyros 5 screen was plastic and not glass, so I always kept the protective film on to protect from scratches and look better for trade in or sell.

I assume that the Genos touch screen is glass. Glass is super hard compared to plastic, resisting scratches. If it is glass, would it even need a screen protector?

Hi alans,

I use Chrome browser.  If I cannot understand the foreign language, I just right click and select "Translate to English".  The Google translation is not perfect but gets the job done, very convenient. 

I have been browsing some discussion forums of Tyros / Genos in Germany using Chrome and found that a lot of them referenced links to this forum in some of their discussion topics.  Sometimes the members from other countries might have forgotten about the language because the browser makes it so easy to forget the language barrier.  I am glad that there are members from other countries here.

Thanks,
Paul

These screens, like the ones on Smartphones, are tough and  designed to last for the entire lifetime of the Keyboard they're mounted on.

Unless you scratch them with a piece of broken glass or key them like they do with cars, there should be no problem.

I have a friend who left his T4 screen protector on for 6 years. He had to squint to be able to see through it after 6 years.
I didn't want to hurt his feelings by commenting,
but I had a titanic fight with myself to not comment, every time I saw him struggling to peer through his plastic film.

Best Regards,
Pianoman.

Hi Marcus,

I used to use screen protectors on my cell phones a long time ago.  However, I totally skipped them for several years because having screen protectors made the screen display much worse.  I found that the glass screens of my cell phones were fine without these screen protectors and did not show a scratch when they were traded in for new handset replacements.

I prefer the touch screen of my Genos to be 'naked', not 'protected'.

Thanks Etienne for the URL.

The URL mentioned one disadvantage of resistive touch screen is "Poor contrast because of having additional reflections from extra layer of material placed over the screen".  A screen protector will probably further worsen the contrast.

Yes, I agree keeping the protective screen film on my Tyros boards is pretty nerdy, but I am very meticulous with keeping my equipment pristine as possible. I won a nerd award in a past forum for keeping my plastic film on, as did a few other members. I jokingly placed the award on my old avatar photo that I used for years (see photo). The film on my Tyros 5 is still in great shape with no issue seeing the screen functions. A real plus when selling my Tyros boards to the next prospecting owner. I am also in the habit of pressing the buttons squarely as not to touch the paint and press the lower half of the larger lit buttons as not to fatigue the plastic hinged top portion. I certainly gave the navigation buttons a workout around the Tyros screen while editing or in creator functions.

Definitely agree that a film protector is not necessary on the Genos touch screen, since it is glass. Probably a good idea to occasionally vacuum out accumulated dirt or grit once in a while in that screen recess. Oddly, despite my meticulous nature with my equipment, finger prints don't bother me, but would occasionally clean the Genos touch screen as per Yamaha's recommendations.

Hi Marcus.

I was only referring to my friend. Not you.
He has eyesight problems and plays his keyboard under the hot sun in the summer here.
His screen protector is all shot and withered.

BTW: I hadn't read your post before throwing in my 2 cents.

Best Regards,
Pianoman.

Touch screen of Genos works very good, no lag... you don't have to punch the screen, you let the finger on it and the contact is raised... Works better than Korg's PA3X touch screen, because when I had this model I had to press on touch with nail, not with skin. So Genos's touch is very nice, I didn't thought I will like it so much.  :D

Regards.
