Customer Question
Can't get the display...

Can't get the display to work. Only horizontal lines to the right side.

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

It is A DGX-530 YPG-535 about 8 years old.

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

It has been "going on" for about 4 years and not used except for simple piano. This happened when the instrument was moved from one location to another. Worked fine until then.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the Instrument Expert to know before I connect you?

Not really. I'm in a different location from the Yamaha. Should I be where it is and pick this up there?
