SY22 - Problem starting up ?

Unread post by TJB »

Hi,

I'm looking for some advice / assistance / magic Wand.

I've bought an old SY22 off ebay, and when powering up it says 'yamaha sy22 nice to meet you' and stays there, no leds light up, and no sounds are generated.

Anyone got any ideas on how to get this thing to work ?

The chap i bought from says it worked last time he used it ( he reckons its to do with the power supply, but ive checked and the voltage, polarity and current all match up correctly. ) he did say he hadnt used it for about 2 months, so i'm wondering if there is a problem with an internal battery ?

Any adivce / help would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi TJB,
WElcome to the Forums! I'm not sure how to access the test routines on the SY22, but that would be my first try. In the diagnostics there is a battery check function, you can also do a reset which will return the SY to it's original factory default state. I'm sure the test routine procedure is on some websites somewhere, if I run across it I'll post it.

I did a couple of Google searches last night and looked at a number of sites, like you I could not find anything. On my SY77 you enter the diagnostic mode by pressing and holding these three buttons simultaneously: voice, bank D, 8. As Yamaha usually does something very similar in all models, you could try combinations of buttons on your 22 that are similar. Let me know if anything works for you.
