Re: Yamaha CS-50 not playing notes

I had a similar issue with a Farfisa Compact many moons ago. It turned out to be a faulty transistor which would start misbehaving as soon as the temperature around would reach a certain point (in this case when cooling down).m_P wrote:Thanks Nooel,
Yeah it was weird, I tested it in a cold place and played on it for about 30 minutes - everything was fine.
I picked it up 2 days later and once I got it home it started going weird.
I then left it on for a day or so and it played almost perfectly.. Then it just started going crazy.
I too think heat might be the issue. It all definitely points towards to KAS board.
I've sent through the schematics to my tech, so he'll see what's going on, but any extra info you might have would be great. Thank you
