Hello Al. The old models were good. I still have my PSR-47, and it works perfectly. I plan to record some of the songs I made on it. Those were the days :)

The S970 was a great keyboard, while it lasted. It is still in the hospital, and I am REALLY beginning to miss its nice features, such as USB capability, audio recorder, color screen, 3 (!!!) intro and ending buttons and, - i must stop, before sobs of despair force themselves out.... :)

So ..

It had to be ordered from Japan and sent to Norway. 2 weeks? ... ish!
Hope they have it soon.
I would have thought your dealer/supplier might have loaned you another one until your other one fixed.

They would have, but had no S970 there at the moment. So I am on my 2100, and have even taken out my vintage PSR-47 to make soom cool recordings!

My S970 is still in hospital. I called the store today, and they talked to the repair shop in Oslo. They are still waiting for that circuit board. The guy told me that the repair shops don't have many parts for the Yamaha keyboards, because they never fall apart. That is, except mine! This made me feel bad again. It is not fun being the only person in the world having a faulty Yamaha product. The Lucky Winner Of The Yamaha Monday Product! Hurrah! That's Toril! I find it hard to believe that Yammies never fail. All electrical products can fail, so there should be more parts sent to repair shops around the world! In the meantime, I will take some floppy disks and flop down beside my good old PSR 2100..

Toril, I just caught up with your problem.....I hope you get your "friend" back soon.  The 2100 is a good KB (I had one) but it's not a 970.  Floppy disks....they still make them?  I am sure Yamaha will make things right....it's the wait that's frustrating....been there.   :(  Flip

Hello friends. Got some good news today, my S970 is repaired, but it is not sent from the repair shop yet. That means I will get it next week, at least I hope so! It has been a long wait, that I have shared with my trusty old PSR 2100. I will give a notice when the S970 is back. BTB, my 2100 is now 15 years, and never had an issue, apart from a button that got some red wine spilled on it, and therefore is a little slow to react :) It was NOT me, I never go near the keyboard with fluids!

Hi Toril.

That's great to hear that your wait is nearly over.

I hope you get it back very soon and you won't have to give your friend a virtual hug but can do it in real time.

You can fall in love with it all over again.

I can't wait to hear some the music you make together.

Cheers

I have just seen this thread... Well, I work all day fixing electronic equipments and, being careful, owner can't find any external trace of my work. I trust the Yamaha service is up to par and you will get back a virtually new keyboard  :)

If I had seen this thread from the beginning, I would have bet correctly that the problem was at the sound amplifier. What happened was, that the amplifier for some reason got fried, so some electric current was passing at the speakers at the moment you tried to start it.

This may happened by hardware failure, which is not so common. The most common way that an amplifier dies, is when you use the internal speakers at very high volume or at the maximum that the amplifier can produce. This can damage the speakers and then if the speaker's coil get a short circuit, then the next part that it will be damaged will be the sound amplifier. Also some times this can happen if you plug and unplug some external devices from the audio input or output sockets and you forget to put the master volume at zero, so you hear some fast scratch crackling noises.I guess at the Yamaha center they have checked the speakers too.

Anyway, don't worry, this is a common fault at car stereo and home hifi devices and it is fully repairable, so afterwards the device becomes as before.
Just take care about the above situations and you will be fine.Let's wish from now and on, to enjoy your cute s970 keyboard without problems for many many years as with your old one.  :)

Thanks Arvacon. I have been very careful with it, but I will be even more careful not to crank up the volume of the speakers!

Hi Toril,

I hope you will receive your S970 back soon.
Maybe you had just that one with a bad transistor or chip
built on a monday  ;).

Enjoy it again!

Ernie

That would be the day, Arvacon! Today I called my store, and they called the repair shop. They still have my keyboard there, but the person who repaired it was not at work today. Must be a reason why they still are "sitting on it." Maybe they have to run some more tests? I don't know. But this means that I face another weekend, and many days to come without my dear S970. I understand the musicians who have backup keyboards, seems wise. But, being only a hobby musician with an occasional gig, I cant justify purchasing another expensive keyboard. But I have my trusted PSR 2100, so I am not totally without! I have a gig in October, and hope I get my S970 before then. If not, I have to make do with what I have. That's life :)
