Yamaha S30 corrupted EPROM

Unread post by ciprogrammer » Mon Jun 03, 2019 10:17 pm

Hello Everyone,

I have a nice Yamaha S30, unfortunately it is no longer working. After investigation, it turns out the EPROM are corrupted.

There are 2 X 27C160 eproms in theses synths. I searched online for the firmware files to burn 2 new parts and get it work again but cannot find them anywhere.

I would be grateful, maybe if somebody has a copy of the 2 X EPROMS and could give them to me to revive this nice Synth.

Thank you
Best Regards

Hi ciprogrammer, welcome to the forum's :)

Sorry to hear you are having problems with your S30. It is a really nice keyboard and with aftertouch too which is something we don't see much of these days.

Might be difficult to get hold of those EPROMS but I hope there will be someone out there who will be able to help.

Hi Saul, thank you for welcoming. Yes, I hope someone will have the file. Unfortunately theses synths are getting old and the Eprom are losting their content. It should be wise make a copy of the Eprom of a keyboard you like while it still work. It is also fitted with the PG150 PF card.

I have revived my DX100 with a new Eprom last year, fortunately the file was easily available online. While it was opened, I modded it with a blue backlighted LCD.

Sounds like a nice job. Any pics of the DX?

Have you tried contact Yamaha's parts service to see if they can help with the Eproms?

Maybe drop an email to them here in the UK.

Thank you for the advice, I just dropped an email to them.

Here is a quick pic of the DX100, it is in mint conditions. Speaking Yamaha I also own a V50, DX7S, TX81Z, QY20 and QY70.

That DX is looking good :)

I love the V50. Very underrated keyboard. It suffered from coming out at the end of the FM wave and of course only had 4 OP but it was still a great sounding keyboard.
