My S900 screen has stripes (1/4 of screen not usable)
« on: September 08, 2017, 12:25:23 PM »
I keep an old S900 up at my family's area (~800 miles from me), to use at family parties and jams with friends up there.  Last time I used it (not long ago), it was OK until "day 2" of my trip up there.  1/4 of the screen shows "stutter" or repeated overlapping pattern.  The other 3/4 of the screen is OK.  The sounds and functions of the keyboard seem OK.

I guess this has happened to a number of people ... mine lasted until mid 2017 or so ... I can sort of "get by" with it, since I can read a good part of the screen, and other functions seem OK.

I'm not even going to bother trying to repair it. . . hope to just keep using it until someday I replace it with a used S950 or S970 or something (once the 990 comes out :-)

Either you can use an external video monitor or, can order specific lcd module cheap online. It can not be repaired,.

Hi - when you say "order specific LCD module", what do you mean?  Do you have an example of what might work, that is available cheap?

Thanks,
Jim

Jim, contact Yamaha tech support. A few years ago, they provided a replacement screen at no charge. This problem was prominent with that model and they took care of the problem. They may still do it, but I am not sure.
