Psr S900-No display function-Should I buy?
« on: October 05, 2016, 12:11:45 AM »
Hello all,

There is a listing on ebay (Germany), for a PSR S900.
According to the seller, it is working perfectly well, except of the display that is not working at all.
Now, he says and we all know that there is a video out port and I could always connect an external monitor, which is fine by me because I dont need to move my keyboard around.

My questions to anybody who can offer an opinion are those:

1. How easy is it to connect an external monitor? Do I need to have access to the settings of the keyboard to do that? Or is it connected automatically once I plug the monitor on? 
and
2. How much do you think I should pay for this? The listing is an auction and at the moment it is still at 1...

I recently replaced my PSR S650 with a new PSR EW400(76 keys) because I wanted to focus more on learning the piano and I needed this extra octave but I didnt want to completely loose the style accompaniament functions.
Now, the styles on EW400 are not bad, but I am missing the many variations that an arranger can offer and this is why I am looking to find a good opportunity to have a second keybord, whenever I feel like playing with styles.

I hope I am making sence with my bad english.
Thanks in advance for any help.

Regards
Dimi

1.  Yes, the display comes up automatically when you connect the video out port.

2. Half of what a regular keyboard is worth.

Do not buy !
A typical failure for the S900.

He's already said he's happy to hook up to an external monitor.

I'd do the same if it was cheap as chips
