Re: Yamaha DX9 - Sysex broken?

Have you checked the MIDI Implementation to confirm that the DX9 even supports sysex? I seem to recall it using a tape port instead. Edit: Just found your other thread https://www.gearslutz.com/board/electronic-music-instruments-electronic-music-production/928096-yamaha-dx9-sysex-broken.html which d...

Re: Yamaha SY85 freezes

I wondered if this was a common issue Not that I have heard, and I do a lot of reading about old stuff like this. and what could be done to fix it The usual suggestion is to check the voltages coming out of the power supply (PSU), and whereas that is often a red herring, in this case it might be re...

Re: Casio FZ-10M fails to start/freezes—only screen & LEDs l

Only found the service manual for the FZ-1, but I assume it is largely applicable to the FZ-10M. It does not mention anything about a (possibly) dodgy FD causing total failure during boot. It mentions typical ROM/RAM checks but indicates that even if the fail, there should be some sort of repeatable...

The OS itself is on ROM, as you also know, and I believe loading other programs is done via a menu in the main OS, rather than by booting with a totally new...

Casio FZ-10M fails to start/freezes—only screen & LEDs light

Hello all. Halp! I’m looking for advice from owners of the Casio FZ-10M (a.k.a.

I bought an FZ-10M, which that needs repair: specifical...

Re: FS1R question...

Does the FS1r respond to polyphonic aftertouch? yes No, it doesn’t, by any proper definition.

So it only offers ...
