Open files
by: Dick Rector

Hello,

I take it that you recorded SONG-files from your keyboard into the USER area and than SAVED them on a floppy.
If they are on your disk and you put it in your keyboard the first title on your disk should show up next to A on your screen (SONG)press that button A and start the song playing with start/stop in the top left panel.
If nothing shows up I am afraid you did not save it correctly.
Your manual will tell you how to save recordings.
If your floppy shows the titles when you put it in a computer they should have the extension xxx.mid

Regards
Dick

Yamaha PSR 210
by: Alfred

Dear Kurian: I think what your technician may have meant is the Rubber Underlay which sits beneath the keys of your Unit.
If so, there is a possibility that your problems stem from worn Nipples which are part of the Underlay. This part is really a pad with numerous Nipples (Cones) which make contact with the main circuit board inside your keyboard. When you press the key, the keyboard should produce the desired note. If the surfaces of the Nipples are worn, you get muffled notes, intertmittent notes or no sound at all. There is a company in the USA which sells a product to re-surface worn Nipples (Only. Not the surrounding matrix which normally is intact). Try contacting sales@oaktreevintage.com and check out their product. It may be the answer to your problems. Good luck.

can a USB or a SD memory card be fitted to a psr 1000 to replace the Fdd

by Les Heenan
(Twelve Mile Creek NSW 2324 Ausrtralia)

Hi , I have a PSR 1000 keyboard. I wish to change the FDD to a Multi card reader , I do have a multi reader which fits into the FDD position. The floppy drive functions but not the card reader as there are no USB connector pins . Can the keyboard be modified so that the card readers function. Please give me a price for modifications
Thank you

FDD replacement
by: Dick Rector

Hi there,

You are one of the hundreds of people with the same question and the answer is rude but true:
NO, what you want is NOT possible because of the internal electronics etc. (motherboards etc. if you like)are not fit to it.
I own a PSR-2000 and have been surging for a few years for a solution but a working one does NOT excist.
The floppydrive and the small intern memory are annoying in times but lets be honest, you've got a very fine and high-class keyboard, be happy with it as it is.

Maybe ...
by: peterpp_bg

Hi,
theoretically it is possible, but in practice there are a few problems:
The interfaces of the FDD and USB are different, therefore your keyboard won't be able to communicate to the USB reader. A translator/converter can be engineered and manufactured if a large electonics company wishes to do it, however there are other problems to overcome.
The capacity of the FDD is limited to 720kB (or eventually 1.44MB, and probably your keyboard can not physically address anything beyond that size, so you would get the USB memory, but its capacity will be limited to the size of the original FDD. Eventually the manufacturer of the translator/converter can make the USB memory appear as hundreds of 720kB disks, but imagine going through them looking for a song ...
Last problem to solve is the cost. Will it be economically viable to release this kind of product?
So in practical terms, what you are asking for is unlikely to happen, although in theoretical terms it is possible.

connecting Yamaha PSR1000 to PC
by: Dick Rector

Hello Jabez,

That all depends what you want to do.
If you want to transfer music to make a cd or so, you use HEADPHONE OUT or LINE OUT (at the back) to LINE IN on the computers soundcard and a recording program like free to download AUDACITY.

If you want to use it as a midi interface you need the software for it and a special cable with TWO midi connectors IN and OUT to a connector on your computer RS422 (game port) and you have to set the HOST Select (at the back) to MIDI.
All this you can find on page 154/155 of your manual.

Regards
Dick

Sticking keys - Yamaha PSR210

(Ludlow, Shrpshire, UK)

I have a Yamaha psr210.

The keys are sticky. Some are quite tricky to push down and slow to return.
Can they be cleaned or greased in some way?

PSR 210 Sticky Keys
by: Alfred

Dear Graham: This unit was released by Yamaha in 1993. (1)If since then, any sugary liguid has spilt between the spaces in the keys it could cause the type of problem you describe. (2) Decaying rubber underlay pads (under the offending keys) could do the same. (3)Dirt/other obstruction is another possibility. Inject compressed air (can type) around all spaces between the keys,and follow with a STRONG vacuuming in the same areas. (1)Requires opening and cleaning of the keyboard by a qualified professional. (2)Requires replacement by a qualified professional. (3) Is a DIY project. Please post a comment in this Forum so we can all learn what you decide. Thank you and good luck.

Sticking Keys
by: Anonymous

Thank you Alfred for your response. I purchased this keyboard second hand about a year ago. The keys were very sticky at that time. It was consequently unplayable.
Therefore, with nothing to lose, I set about cleaning them myself. Yes it is a job for a professional, which I am not. Dismantling and subsequent reassembly was exceedingly tricky and time consuming. Many of the keys had a white greasy substance on them. I vacuumed and cleaned every single key set assiduously and the keyboard worked satisfactorily for a few months. At the time of cleaning I did suspect the rubber underlay pads. Some looked dull compared to others and some did not compress accurately without care. I think your observation now confirms my suspicions. I think I can replace them if I knew how to purchase a set of rubbers. I just have to find a willing U.K. supplier!

Sticking Keys PSR 210
by: Alfred

Dear Graham: Thank you for your timely reply. If you cannot locate a supplier in the UK for the rubber pads, there is a US supplier of a COMPOUND COATING which may be the answer. It is a kit consisting of (I am guessing) a liquid which is mixed with a powder of some sort (still guessing) and costs US 39.00 and change. It is available through oaktreevintagesales.com
I have not tried it, but feel confident it works. Read their promotional description and judge for yourself. I must admire you for having the spunk to open your unit as I'm fully aware of other CIRCUIT pitfalls, and always suggest leaving such cases to professionally qualified personnel. If you buy the product and it works well, please favor this Forum with a follow-up message. Regards.

PSR 210 Sticky Keys
by: Alfred

Dear Graham: In reviewing your comments, the "white greasy substance" probably was WHITE GREASE applied by the factory. It will have to be re-applied (IN MODERATION) if you open your unit again. Use just enough to coat the movable linkage of the keys. Good luck.

Greasing the PSR 210 keys
by: Graham Hardy


Looking at the Oaktree details on the compound for rubber contacts it appears to be just for refreshing the actual contacts rather than restoring spring to the rubber itself. I may not be correct in this assumption. I now believe the mistake I made was to wipe off the white compound that was already on the keys! Correcting that is the first road I shall travel.
Is the grease the conventional white lithium grease that seems to be readily available in aerosol form in many DIY shops? Although in aerosol form it apparently does dry to a grease.

Sticking Keys PSR 210
by: Alfred

Dear Graham: I read somehwere an insinuation that the white grease used by Yamaha is a "special" one, but I do not believe it. The only white grease I've ever heard of and used is the white Lithium from a tube which surely is available in the UK. The only disadvantage I can see in the use of an aerosol type is the uncontrolled spray which may be harmful to the surrounding rubber parts adjacent to the keys.
As to the Oaktree compound - which I've never had the opportunity to use - it probably could restore spring to the rubber. Anyway, let's take it step by step. Your next action may well obviate the need for it. Please keep the Forum informed. Good luck and regards.

Sticky Keys
by: Alfred

Dear Graham: Hope you check on postinhgs on this Forum. I've just read somewhere that at one time Yamaha owned up to having a problem with the grease they used on some of their (older?)models. It apparently caused sticky key (surfaces) and sometimes the keys cracked. I must believe they have since corrected the problem. Regards.

PSR 1000
by: Dick Rector

Selamat pagi Jefry,

Have you tried a 'factory reset'???
Most at the time that solves this sort of problem.
Press FUNCTION, UTILITY,
togle with BACK/NEXT to SYSTEM RESET (most right)
Mark FACTORY RESET-SYSTEM SETUP
Unmark the others!!!!!
Press top of button 1 = FACTORY RESET EXECUTE
Answer YES on the question.
A quick reset of some functions can also be done by: holding down the highest C-key (most right key)and turn on power of the keyboard while holding down the C-key for a few seconds.

Hope this helps you, if not I have no idea what it can be. but there are a lot of clever people on this forum. Let me know please! this is my mailaddress:

Sound Panel??
by: Alfred

Dear O.O.: I'd like to help if I can, but need to know exactly what you mean by "Sound Panel". Is it the front panel of the keyboard, the mother board containing the circuitry, some other part you can see if you've dismantled the keyboard??
Perhaps you are qualified to open the keyboard, and make the repair in which case you should go directly to Yamaha's site for Service Manuals and look up the Parts List to order what you need.

Song
by: Dick Rector

Hi Berry,

When you have recorded a song the best way is to save it first in the USER area with the lower part of button 6 after you have given the song a name.
Than you can copy that song to floppy by pressing: (From the main screen)
Press A (song)that will show the contents of a floppy if available.
Press BACK (at the righthand top above the screen)
You get a screen with the song(s) in the USER area.
Press the button next to the song you want to copy, let's say A again
That will HIGHlight that song.
Press COPY (lower button 3)
Press OK (lower button 7)
Press NEXT (at the righthand top above the screen)
That takes you to the Floppy-area
Press PASTE (lower button 4)
That will save your song on floppy.

To playback from USER or Floppy
Press A (song) and NEXT or BACK to Floppy or USER area
Press the button next to the song you want to hear.
Press START/STOP in the SONG area (Left panel almost top row of buttons.)

I hope this answers your question.
