I have a Yamaha YDP-223 digital piano and use it with Band-in-a-Box and Power Tracks. I would like to get an arranger keyboard so I can play music on

Default Need help with PSRS900 - 16-01-2010, 07:18 PM

I just purchased a Yamaha PSRS-900 (two days ago) and can't get the style section to work. Has anyone experienced this problem? When I try to select any of the styles, nothing happens. The lights on the style buttons don't turn on. I'ts probably something I'm doing wrong, but I'm at a loss as to what it is. The troubleshooting section of the manual is of no help in this matter. Any help will be appreciated.

Paul

Check the ACMP light is on - press the ACMP button (if you have done this and there's still nothing let me know)

Just downloaded the manual.
Switch the keyboard on, press the style genre you want to use eg Country, the screen will now show page 1 and 10 Country styles. Press the button next to the style you want. Ensure ACMP button is pressed and ACMP light is on. Press Sync Start and play a chord - the style should start and the chord should play in time with the rhythm.
If this isn't happening then You may have a fault which if the keyboard is new you have to go back to your dealer.
Let me know if this works or not

Thanks for going to the trouble of downloading the manual, Spike. Unfortunately, I have already tried this and it still doesn't work. When I select a style, the display doesn't show anything. The style light should go on but it doesn't. The ACMP light is on, but that's the only light that will go on on the left side of the keyboard. I will call Yamaha tech support on Monday, but I am afraid that it will have to go back to the dealer. Of course it's in warranty, but I suppose I'll have to pay shipping. You always take those chances when you buy mail order. I thought that it was something I was doing wrong, but the more I play with it, the more I think it is probably defective.

Hi Paul
Last resort before you send it back - try a System Reset (Factory Reset)

Hi Spike:

I have done a system restore more than once. Still no luck. I'll still call Yamaha tech support on Monday before sending it back. I'll keep you posted. Thanks for your help.

Paul
