on my piano, suddenly the display is unreadable because of a strong light coming from right. Everything is bleached and can only see that light.
Is there a device to adjust the luminosity??

Yamaha DGX-620 plays double-note on middle C
I have a DGX-620 and it has started to play a B+C second when I hit middle C, but only when certain other notes are being held in sustain at the same time. Sometimes only the B sounds loudly when C is hit, but again only with other note combinations in sustain. I have tried both the last-white-key and 3-blacks+last-white key resets, but there is no improvement. Anybody know what to do?
USB-Keyboard driver for DGX-620
I've long been looking for the driver to connect my DGX 620 to my laptop.
I did it 2 years ago with the installation CD, but my laptop went out of use and I lost the CD.
I just remember it was 1 or 2 small files.
Where might I get them: the files, OR a copy of this installation CD ??
Thanks for answering

Then, I try and download drivers and it downloads but the screen stays white and I can't find the driver download. My computer says that I don't have a DGX attached.
damaged keyboard arrays dgx 620
by H C
(The Netherlands EU)
We've had a litlle accident with our DGX620: our cat has peed over the keyboard. The man at our local musicstore warned us, that in time the circuitboards underneath the keyboard will get damaged by the acid of the fluid. First it functioned well, but after a week or 2 indeed hitting a key resulted in messy notes, as if all notes are messed-up and played in random highs.
So: the contactstrips/arrays underneath the keyboard need to be replaced (all 4 of them). Total costs (including worktime) about ? 400,00. We didn't think it was worth the investment and have now bought an dgx 630 (with keyboardcover :) ). However.. the soundpart of the damaged dgx 620 is still functioning well. If i connect it to my pc, all midi-files and internal songs and voices are still sounding correct. I can even trigger it by using an external keyboardcontroller via USB through Sonar on the PC.
Surfing the internet has resultet in very poor info about keyboards for the dgx 620. Our man at the musicstore told us, that FATAR produces good value for money keyboards. I have a few questions about the damaged arrays:
1. is it possible to just clean them, so the keymatrixstuff can work properly again?
If so, how do i remove the arrays? (if have already removed the whole keyboard-unit out of the dgx 620)
2. If the above is not possible, is it worth to replace the circuitboards/arrays myself? (as said, i allready disassembled the keyboard out of the casing and disconnected it from the circuitboard).
3. If #2 can be done, where on earth can i get/buy the right contactarrays for this keyboard and does anyone has any indication of the costs of those arrays?
If all gets too expensive i am planning on ripping the circuitboards of the sooundmodule out of the dgx casing and rebuild it in another casing, thus using it as an soundmodule (kinda rackversion of the dgx 620) and then trigger it with my easycontrol 49 usb midicontroller. I even have the instrument definitionset for use in sonar, so i can access also the sweet and livevoices.
Sonar is a very complex midi/audio recording programm, so i guess i will be spending a lot of time figuring how to do all the midi stuff according to the 620.
Question: is there a way (or a programm) wich helps me to get more control over the dgx620? For example if i want to start a style using syncstart, it now don't react on keyboardhits from my keycontrol. Also i want to be able to use split and dual etc. .... the functions that can be accessed on the dgx by pressing the buttons. But i want to access/controll them via midi. Can this be done?
All in all a lot of brainstorming/thinking of various possiblities. I hope u all can join my brainstorming and come-up with some usefull information. Perhaps it would be cool if i sent u from time to time some pictures of the moddingproject? Included 1 picture of what i have in mind...
Yamaha DGX 620 - File replay
by John Pham
(Westminster, California, United States)
Hi, I recent bought a Yamaha DGX 620 and i was wondering if there is any way to open USER SONGS on a windows computer, possibly with windows media or be able to open the file as a mp3 file or a .wav file.
How do I copy my user songs to a USB drive? Yamaha DGX-620
I composed, played, and recirded a couple of user songs onto my instrument, and now I want to use a USB drive/flash drive/thumb drive, etc. To transfer it to a computer, because i don't have a cable to connect directly. Is this possible? And if it is, how can I do it?
I might not be back on this site, so could you e-mail the response to my e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
(post the answer here too, so others can see it ^^)
Still can't connect Yamaha dgx 620 to my mac even after reading here:(
(Yuba City, Ca)
I've read & read on this site about this problem, and I swear I've tried so many things to make this work, I'm truly at a loss.
I have a mac G4 running system 10.4.11 and a Yamaha dgx 620 piano.
I've recorded 4 'user songs' into the user lines in the little display.
I downloaded the appropriate driver & installed it.
I went into the utility folder & set up the midi device (which the computer found with no problem)
How do I get the songs out of the piano?
I know it's a stupid question, but please bear with me. I'm a fairly computer literate grandma, but this piano is starting to give me the heebie-jeebies.
Also...I use Audacity to work with sound files (we have a usb turntable hooked up and record onto CD with it & it works fine)
I need some really intense step-by-step midi-for-dummies instruction.
The only thing I know about this piano, is how to play it. I don't play it badly, either. I really want to make a Christmas piano CD for my grandkids.
I have the music done in those 'user' lines. I don't know if I'm supposed to save them, and if so, how do I do that, and then what? I can't make heads or tails out of the instruction manual.
It's a miracle that I even figured out how to record on the thing and trust me, I stumbled on it by accident.
OK...you get the picture. If any of you guys & gals can help, I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks in advance,

Recording from Yamaha DGX 620 to CD
by Greg Tanner
I have created 10 different songs on my keyboard and have saved them successfully to a flashdrive. I want to play the flashdrive through my computer and creater a cd, but when I play the songs through the computer, I don't get the great sounds that i do on the keyboard. What is the best method for recording a cd from these songs so that they sound like they do on the keyboard?
Yamaha DGX620 Doesn't Power Up
by Jim P
After plugging in the power supply I push the "on" button and nothing happens. No display,zip. The power supply (Yamaha of course)works with other equipment but the Dgx620 has no response. No lights of any kind.
Hand written in the manual is a note to remove all batteries. Yet there is no reference to batteries in the index.
Is there anything I can do or is it tech/repair time?

Yamaha DGX-620 - A_B repeat - remove count in
I want to use the A-B repeat function on my DGX-620 a bit like a loop pedal i.e. record a phrase and have it play over and over so I can play along with it.
I'm getting a metronome count in before my recording (or any song fragment)plays.
Is there a way of stopping the count in?

(Kent , U.K)
I have a DGX 620 which is 2 1/2 years old. The display screen has faded and only shows 50% of the screen. This appears to be a common fault with various owners reporting the same or very similar problmes. I assume that as this appears to be a faulty part this should changed free of charge.
