Customer Question
I've had the Yamaha P-250...
I've had the Yamaha P-250 for years, and this keyboard ALWAYS erases my song after I turn the danged thing off....even after pressing the buttons for "save song?" etc. I tried to record on track 3, and the same thing happens....I can play it back after I record it, and after I turn it off it appears to be playing the song back.....the measures tick by, but NO SOUND comes out. Please HELP!!!

This is common over time, and the solution is simple. There is a battery in this keyboard that needs to be replaced occasionally. Part number 4347. You can get the battery from the following page - there are other places, and this is not an endorsement, just a reference to exactly what battery you need:

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

I've been trying and failing to get my computer to recognises MIDI messages sent by it. I've a Yamaha PSR-e535 keyboard, with sounds on board but MIDI enabled and trying to get sounds from this out of the computer persuades me that the problem lies with what I've got, or more likely not got on the latter. I've checked the USB cable from the Yamaha to the computer is okay. I've no reason to doubt the MIDI cables to M-Audio interface to USB from the Studiologic to be duff. … read more
