Anyone In Germany who can help with an SY85 PSU problem?

The Yamaha SY85 is a digital music workstation introduced in 1992. Unlike other Yamaha synthesizers of the time (SY77 and the SY99) the SY85 does not use FM synthesis. Instead, its sounds are based on samples, which can be layered and modified to create new sounds.

Anyone In Germany who can help with an SY85 PSU problem?

This is probably a long shot but worth a try :)

I have an SY85 owner friend who lives in Munich. It seems from what she has said that the PSU on her beloved SY85 has died but she cannot find anyone local to help. She is not tech-minded so it is not something she could fix even if she had the parts.

So first thing is we need to locate a replacement PSU for the SY85 and then we need to find someone who can fit it for her.

Failing that, perhaps there is someone fairly local who would like to buy and SY85 for spares?

My friend is not on the forum so please route any comments etc through me.

Thanks (Y)
