Yamaha P70 Demo Song LIst

by luckymummy
(london)

Hi there,
I have a Yamaha P70 and the demo piece list is incomplete in the manual I downloaded. I bought it new, and I didn't notice at the time that the man didn't give me a manual.

There are 2 jazz pieces right at the beginning in the preset songs, before the classical pieces. These 2 jazz pieces are not listed.

Anybody know what they are? My little boy is desperate to learn one of them and it's a bit complex to learn by ear.

Thank you.

Hi,
I have the same question, please, I'm looking the name of the 1st and 2nd preset songs that are not listed in the manual (it's just written that are original songs from Yamaha but no names) and eventually where I can find it to try to learn them.
Thanks very much. email: yassumj@gmail.com

Yamaha P70

Dear Hellen: I tried to post a response (earlier, but not listed?). The initial and only suggestion is to first blow some compressed air (common type sold in cans)around and between the spaces of the offending keys. Hold them down one by one for easier access. This should dislodge any accumulation of dirt/obstruction under them. Next try playing to see if successsful. If not, do the same thing with a strong vacuum. These actions failing, I suspect the problem is more serious, and strongly recommend seeking the services of a professional. Good luck.

72 screws in the P70
by: johndelf

To remove the back cover, place the unit keyboard down onto a soft surface to protect it and locate all visible screws - there should be 72 of them (all the same type). Once all screws are removed the cover comes off easily, by just lifting it.

Screws in Yamaha P70 digital piano

by Lizzy
(USA)

What size screws are used in the back of the P70 keyboard? I brought my P70 to a shop to be fixed and they did not replace any of the many screws that used to hold it together. The shop claims to not have them, so I need to replace them myself.

Thank you!

Yamaha P 70 Screws
by: Alfred

Dear Lizzy: 1) Screws are not normally well-identified by Yamaha's Parts Dept. (yamaha.com
then thread to Parts Dept). 2) If you are referring to screws which hold the clamshell housing of the keyboard together, a mechanically-inclined person should be able to quickly make an educated guess as to their size. This does not require help from a rocket scientist, especially if the size turns out to be "standard" for the majority of the missing screws. You really want only to secure the two clamshell halves together, and if there are other holes for different sizes, they are only important if they secure INTERNAL PARTS which have to be adequately anchored.
Hope this "treatise" is of some help. If it is, you owe me a follow-up Forum message, saying so. It will help our other members. Good luck.

P 70 Screws
by: Alfred

Dear Lizzy: I should also mention that the screws are "sheet metal type", not "machine type". There are less threads on the former; and they are rougher and spaced farther apart. Be sure the screws are of the correct length. Good luck.

Volume very low even if slider turned all the way to loud on our Yamaha P70

by Melissa
(Rockville, Maryland)

The volume on our Yamaha P70 never seems to get above a whisper even with the volume slider turned all the way up. Our kids were playing with some of the buttons etc but even when we put it back on piano and turned it on and off etc. nothing seemed to help.

Any advice? Any reputable service techinians in the Rockville Maryland area?

Thanks

Yamaha P 70 Volume Problem
by: Alfred

Dear Melissa: I'm not familiar with the P70, but you can try two things before calling for any professional help. First if you've recorded anything on your unit, store it in a Flash Stick
so you can restore it after any repair is done.
Next, try a "partial" reset. This is done by pressing the Last white key (to your right) SIMULTANEOUSLY turning the unit On. This will erase all User Settings, Registration Memory, User Songs, Style File. This means all your backed up data. (therefor the flash stick).
If the above does not restore the Volume control,
try a total "Back-to-Factory" Initializing. This is done by pressing the Last white key (to your right), plus the last three Black keys SIMULTANEOUSLY turning the unit On. This will erase everything, literally restoring the keyboard to ?Factory, Out-of-the-Box? condition. (Everything, including MIDI downloaded info will be erased). If the Volume control still does not return to normal,it is likely your Volume control is shot. You should contact a reputable technician in your area, or if you prefer,you can find the closest Yamaha service by contacting:
http://yamaha.com/yamahavgn/CDA/Service/ServicerLocator/0,,VNM%3DLIVE,00.html
Hope this info helps, and thanks for contacting this Forum where you will always be welcome.

Yamaha P 70 Case Removal

I am an electronics technician with 30 years of experience. I have a P 70 in my shop that I need to open and add a direct box to for live performances. Which of the 65 screws on the back need to be replaced to get the shell off of the piano?

Thanks

How to open a P 70 Case
by: Anonymous

There are 65 screws on the bottom of the P70. Take them out carefully, and organize them in zip lock bags based on the row they came out of and make sure and put the number of screws in that row on your bag. Also make an informal drawing of your rows so you know where the rows and screws came from. Label your rows a, b, c, d, etc. Do all of this with the keyboard bottom facing up,carefully sitting on a flat table, cushioned with a bath towel or something soft. After you get the initial 65 screws out, remove the 8 screws in the deep indents near the back of the bottom, adjacent to the speakers. The bottom will now lift off. Be very careful not to bump the key counter balances as this could permanently damage the action and velocity engine.

Broken Phones Jack - need rear Aux out. socket
by: John M (UK)

My wife uses her P-70 at church gigs. When I bought her the instrument 5 years ago I didn't realise that it doesn't have an analogue aux out jack on the back for an external amp. or PA. So we use the headphone jacks to external amp/PA. Only problem is because they're 3/8" they repeatedly get broken off when people carelessly push past the keyboard. This happened last weekend the 3/8" plug broke off completely inside the jack in the instrument. I read the note below and took out all 68? screws, disconnected the PCB with the headphone jacks and teased out the offending jack tip. - All works perfectly after reassembly.... :-))
QUESTION: does anyone know how I can fit a parallel 1/4" jack from the phones jack to the back of the P-70 so that we can use that for the external amp/PA? I'd do it myself but I am intimidated by the PCB behind the phones jacks. email john-h-meadows@hotmail.com

P 70 Extra Sounds
by: Alfred

Dear Barbie: Your Owners Manual should list all the Sounds (Voices) you can select with your Unit.
If you do not have the manual, try accessing
http://www.yamaha.co.jp/manual/english/result.php
for a free copy. If further help is needed, do not hesitate to post a follow-up message in this Forum. Good luck.

Loading extra sounds
by: Dick Rector

Hello Barbie,

Yamaha will not win a prize for their easy to read manuals especially for 'novices' but if you still have your manual it will tell you how to load extra styles, songs, midi's or voices.
If you don't have it, go to:
www.yamaha.co.jp/manual/english/index.php
There you can download one in PDF format.

I am not familiar with the P70 but in general (when you have the 'sound' you want to load) you copy that into the 'user area' activate it and you are ready to go playing.
If you don't have any extra sounds and you are looking for free styles or voices and a lot more, go to psrtutorial.com and you can download TONS of styles, voices, midi's and all the 'PADS' you can imagine.
Bear in mind that some 'sounds' will NOT work or sound wrong on your keyboard for the simple reason they are made for a different model.

Happy 'hunting' I would say and please let us know if this answers your question so we all can learn something.
Best regards
Dick

Can we replace or repair the power supply on a Yamaha P-70

by Timothy McKean

I have a P-70 that I use in my classroom and the port that the power cord plugs into is going bad. Is that something that can be repaired or replaced? At this point it is still working sometimes but I have to wiggle it and hold it just right.

Yamaha P 70
by: Alfred

Dear Timothy: As you seem sure it is the Port (Jack) in the Unit that is bad, I recommend you contact a qualified technician to do the repair. IT IS NOT A DIY JOB! If however your Adaptor is the culprit, buy a new one (Yamaha PA 5), sometimes the Plug is dirty, or the Cord (internally) is frayed. Hope this helps you. Thanks for contacting the Forum, and please feel free to come back if you neeed further assistance. Good luck.
