Yamaha PSR 290 or 295
by: Alfred

Dear Sara: If you first google Yamaha PSR 290 and learn about that Unit, then do the same for Yamaha 295 you will be in a position to post any lingering questions in this Forum. No disrespect is meant, but you should do some "homework" before posing any questions such as yours. Most participants do not own more than one keyboard, and presuming the one they own is one of the two
in question, they have no way of really responding without doing some "homework". All this said,please accept my advice in the positive spirit in which it is meant. I look forward to helping you further, so please don't be shy to post future Forum messages. Keep well.

Are they the same, or is one just newer?

Difference PSR 293 and PSR 295
by: Alfred

Dear Jessica: All I can tell you is that both these keyboards were released by Yamaha in 2004. I believe there probably are some differences, and I suggest you Google the Internet for each unit, and you should learn what the differences are. Happy hunting!

My keyboard has a buzzing or static sound when playing. It happens only when striking keys and silent when not playing. Advice?

Yamaha PSR 295 Speaker Static
by: Alfred

Dear Russell; One (among several) possibility is that the Battery Terminals/Adaptor Plug Contacts may be dirty or making bad contact. Try cleaning with Electronic Contact Spray. Will you please let the Forum know if this works for you? Thanks and good luck.

I failed to mention that the bad sound is only in the right speaker. I tried using batteries,then the A/C plug,but with the same buzzing sound results. Sometimes the sound is fine, but more frequently the buzz is present. I'll try the contact cleaner this weekend and let you know.

Yamaha PSR 295 Speqaker Static
by: Alfred

Dear Russell: As the problem is only audible in one speaker changes the possibilities. Again, ONE POSSIBLE CAUSE COULD BE that the right Speaker Cone is off-center and its coil is rubbing against the magnet when it receives a sound signal. Do not buy any Contact Cleaner, as it appears the defect has nothing to do with input power at all. Your unit is relatively new (2004) and should still give you some years of playing pleasure. I avoid recommending any DIY repair and suggest you consider either having the keyboard checked by Yamaha, or by one of their authorized service technicians. There are internal circuit components which are sensitive to static electricity, etc, and there is always the chance other components may be causing the speaker to behave badly. I hope my info is of some help, and that the cost of the repair will not be excessive. Good luck.

Same Problem
by: Smiley

I have the same problem...started a long time ago, but just now decided to see if others had it. Sure enough, only the right speaker, buzzes when I play. I'm thinking of opening the keyboard up and seeing what I can find. Any updates on successfull fixes for this issue?

Thanks.
