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?

Same bdp the little triangle button kind of works but need to do it each time. Still no accompany rythms. But not used for years. Have it plugged in.

Yamaha PSR-500 bdP midi bulk dump
by: Anonymous

This had me puzzled too, but I cleared it by pressing the recessed small triangular (or if you like right-arrow shaped) rubber button labelled Midi Bulk Dump............

PSR 500 "bdP" displayed

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) ???

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.
