Customer Question
Yamaha MM6... the LED...

Yamaha MM6... the LED display no longer operates.

Technician's Assistant: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?

Yamaha MM6 workstation... about 7-8 years old.

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Turned it on last week, and no display. Tried shutting it down; doesn't work. I tried using it with the preset sounds I put in memory... they work, but transpose at will.

Hello my name is ***** ***** I am a Yamaha certified technician. I believe I can help you today. For starters try turning the LCD contrast control "near the center top of the keyboard" and see if that will make any change in the display.
