Service manual resource? Yamaha Electone E-70

Post by WhinyLittleRunt » Sun Nov 14, 2010 2:18 pm

Just picked up a Yamaha E-70 organ (pic at www.vintagekeyboardstudio.com) and it's working pretty well with the exception of a bunch of key contacts and some general maintenance needed. I know I've seen people on here who have owned these, and I wondered if anyone had a resource for a download-able service manual? This thing is pretty kick-a*s, but it smells like moldy basement and stunk up the whole studio... :)

Anyone even know anything about the E70? I have a problem with the Lower Orchestra; no volume coming through from the actual voices, but can hear it slightly if you listen carefully...

Check that the 'Upper Plus Lower' coupler switch is not on. It's just below the master volume, and it switches the lower voices to the upper keyboard for layering. Pretty cool actually - very similar to the CS80.
