Yamaha PSR 500

by Max and Emily

Hey there,

we are seeing a flashing bdP (error code?) in the digital window of our PSR 500. Nothing plays and none of the keys or buttons seem to be active. Just the flashing bdP and a bunch of leds flashing on the panel at the same time.

Any ideas?

I just got this.

Fixed it by resetting the keyboard.

Press record/end and clear together while pushing power-on. You should see 'clr' appear in the display.

I've just got this trouble too, I've processed record/end + clear + power-on, and it worked ! BUT : each time I want to play, I have to do it again. This means that the problem is not really fixed.

Any idea ? Is there a battery inside the keyboard which could be weak (after many years not used) ???
