I need a replacement for my Tyros 1
« on: October 20, 2018, 12:02:44 AM »
Hello Everyone. 
Amazingly, I still have 2 original Tyros 1's - one for home and one for church.  I transfer settings and  registrations from home to church using the floppy.  Unfortunately the floppy drive at church has finally died and I understand they cannot be fixed?

So I am looking for a replacement.  Does anyone still own a Tyros 1 or Tyros 2 that they would like to find a great home for?  I would be so grateful for a donation, but of course will pay if reasonable.  My home model has a hard drive, so that would be preferable.

Thanks so much -
Paula Holtz

Hi Paula,

IMHO it will cost you approx. US$ 80,-- to replace your T1 floppy disk player.

Or, just move your hard drive between one keyboard and the other. It's not that hard to take out the drive, and put it back in.

Much easier to replace the floppy drive than to mess around with the hard drive.

Thank you - that's great news!  I was told they could not be repaired or replaced.  Where would I find a new floppy drive for the T1?  I don't know of any place locally who handles them or would be able to install one.  Or is it simple enough to install myself?

Also, would it be even easier to buy a new hard drive? 
Thanks again.
