Yamaha PSR 2000

I am looking to buy a Yamaha PSR 2000 from ebay, but the vendor says there is a fault with it. Apparently it can be turned on but turns off straight away on its own. Any ideas?
Yamaha PSR 2000 diskdrive
by Dick Rector
After a power cut the diskdrive can not read any new or previous used floppy disks. Message (with unused but new floppy)'disk not formatted' or 'disk error'.
I have changed the drive for a brandnew one but that did not solve the problem. I can format in the PSR and copy from the USER area to the floppy and use it. When I take this floppy to my computer with also an almost new diskdrive for back-up purposes, it tells me 'disk not formatted, do you want to format now?'
Yes, but than it says '0 track bad, disk unusable'. Put this same floppy back in the PSR 2000 says 'disk error'.
Is it possible the disk-controller-chip is damaged by the power-surge. Is this chip situated on the board with numbers #2726 and X0129. If this is the case does anybody (an Angel)out there knows how to get a replacement board in Indonesia.
Please help as I am desperate and can't use my floppy's anymore.
Thanks a million for your help!
