Dear Sir, I purchased a Yamaha PSR-520 musical instrument in 1998. For its beautiful features and tonal quality I love this instrument very much and still I use it. It has developed a problem with LCD display in last couple of years which is day by day increasing. The display started fading up from centre of the lcd panel and now only a small part of lcd panel is readable. Characters in other areas of lcd panel are too fade to read. Can you please help me to repair or replace the lcd display of my instrument? I'm facing lot of inconvenience in playing the synthesizer due to fading out of display values but I don't want to discard this beautiful model of Yamaha synthesizer. Please help me at the earliest. My city is 180 km away from Kolkata. If possible you can send a display unit as spare which I can assemble by the local mechanic of Durgapur or Kolkata. Please guide me what to do to get rid of this display problem. Thank you, GK Mandal, Durgapur

I got this keyboard when it was released and it was excellent and was one of the instruments I learnt to play on, after residing in the loft for the last 10 years whilst I was working overseas I got the music bug once again and brought it out of retirement and its still a great easy to use keyboard and will tide me over until I can afford my dream instrument the Roland AX-Synth!!

I purchased PSR-520 in 1998 and I'm very much satisfied with its features and quality. Now I'm facing a typical problem and seek expert's help. The backlit yellow LCD display started fading around 1 year back and the fading away of black writings on LCD gradually increased and right now the scripts/fonts/symbols/icons on screen are almost invisible. The whole display is now yellow. The fading startrd from centre and spreaded elliptically towards edges of LCD screen. I already talked to a mechanic of Calcutta / Kolkata who is demandinding excessively high amount for repair showing the cause of obsolence of that model. Can I get help from Yamaha or any body? Please reply immediately. Thank you.

I've used a hundred keyboards in my life, from the cheap toys to the expensive pro workstations. In my opinion, the Yamaha PSR 520 is probably one the best 'cheap' keyboards available. You can find these for around $200, and you get full sized, touch sensitive keys, MIDI in/out, and 140 really solid sounds (AWM tone generation system is the same as in high-end keyboards). Its the perfect lightweight trigger for computer sounds, or other sources. Its lightweight, has great stereo speakers built-in (perfect for instant fooling around, or on the road), and a big, bright LCD screen. Buy a stand, a foot trigger, and a MIDI controller for your computer, and you're all set!

I brought a YAMAHA PSR 520 in 1996 and still it is doing perfectly well. The sounds were the best under the given circumstances. Off late, there is a problem in the LCD display because of which, I am unable to use the entire features of the keyboard. Is there any possibility for me to get the display kit changed, or are there any authorized service personnel located in Hyderabad? If yes, then kindly reply to me so that I could do the needful. Thanks.
