Systemcheck what chord
« on: January 12, 2017, 07:18:05 AM »
Hello friends !
I would have a question about a PSR3000.
In a system check you have to hold a chord and then press the power switch but what chord.

If you mean the built in 'Test Program', then you enter it by turning the [STANDBY/ON] switch on while holding down the [C2#], [F2] and [G2#] keys.

Note that I would not advise people to run the tests unless they are able to correctly interpret the results!

Would that be a second inversion Fminor 6 excluding the 5 in the correct octave?  (Think Db and Ab rather than the sharps.)

What does it matter what chord these three notes represent?

You just need to know the three correct notes, and in my reply I have included them exactly as they appear in Yamaha's PSR3000 Service Manual, although I would normally write these as C#2, F2 and G#2, which how they appear in the SMs of more recent keyboards!  In these, Yamaha refer to this as the 'C#2 major code'.

An attempt at humor.

Fair enough!  For some reason, on this occasion I missed it! 

Believe it or not, I do have what usually passes for a sense of humour.

I'm not in a particularly grumpy mood today, so I don't know why I didn't 'get it', but apologies anyway!    :-[

Hey, Ian, we all miss things by being in work mode and aren't even looking for something funny at the time.  I seriously doubt you need to appologize.

By the way, did you wake up grumpy this morning, or did you let her sleep.   ;D  ::)  ;)

Your day is over in your part of the world, so have a good day tomorrow, my good friend.

As I mentioned on some other board on some other topic, just because I think it's funny doesn't mean that others will.  Ask my wife and daughters.

My sense of humor is such that whenever I try to crack a joke, it cracks!

But at least I've (mostly) learned not to laugh at my own jokes. People can get offended when you say something funny and laugh, but they didn't think it was funny. And I (generally) try not to offend anyone whose fist is harder than my face!

To sort of get back on topic, do you all say "C#2 Major" or "C2# Major"? I understand the arguments for each, but the only times it could make a difference is with a B# or a Cb-- unless you start getting into multiple sharps and flats.

And to more definitely get back on topic, the PSR-3000 service manual can be freely downloaded from ElektroTanya:
