YAMAHA CS-15D Service Manual + disappointing YAMAHA JP Servi

Post by spybar » Thu Dec 01, 2011 8:39 pm

Hello dear mates,

So I bought two days ago a part working YAMAHA CS-15D. Joy! :D
http://www.vintagesynth.com/yamaha/cs15d.php

It had some problems with presets & non-working keys.

The tech guy (I'm grateful for him) cleaned it, set almost everything up, but he said that the presets' volume level is changing from preset to preset. He need Schematics / Service Manual in order trying fixing it.

I tried ti find... but only found Owner Manual... :(

Do you have, pretty please, YAMAHA CS-15D Schematics / Service Manual? :ugeek:

Truly, as always, appreciate your help! :mrgreen:

There are a few websites that sell service manuals, try a Google, Bing, or similar search to see if you can find the one you need.

Thanks Clyde... I tried to searched but couldn't find any... :(

So I emailed YAMAHA JAPAN, and asked for help... if they please would be kind to send my service manual.
This was their (quick) reply:

"Thank you for your inquiry about our products.

We are very sorry that we can't provide you a service manual of CS-15D.
It's confidential material in YAMAHA.

And CS-15D is very old product and we Don't have the spare parts. So it is very difficult that we repair it.

Thanks and best regards
YAMAHA CORPORATION
OSAKA Service center"


What should/can I do?
It may be a small thing to fix, but I need the service manual to fix it... :(

Appreciate any input!

Here is the CS15 service manual, I don't think the 15D will be that much different that you couldn't use the 15's manual:

Thanks Gmeredith.
Because the presets part are the main problem, I really need CS-15D service manual - the CS-15 don't have this part... :oops:

The problems are:
1. CHANNEL 2 (organ part) presets' volume is unbalanced & very low. For example, the Wood Wind volume is very low, you almost can't hear it.

2. Overall output volume is not strong.

Maybe someone have an idea...?
HELP. Thank you all again.

The 15D is a very different synth than the 15. Did you try contacting Mark Glinsky to see if he has it?
