Hi

I bought a used Yahama Disklavier MX100A around 1990, which is also able to record.
Unfortunately some years ago it got ill
First it froze around 10-15 seconds into the tune, later it would only spin the diskette and then it stopped even spinning up the diskette drive. There is nothing in the display and the digital display shows 00.
A friend has offered to help try and fix it, but obviously we need a service manual to be able to troubleshoot.

Does anybody know where one could buy such a thing ?
I guess Yamaha would only refer me to a repair shop...

Any hints would be most welcome.
TIA
Andreas

You won't believe this, but this morning I was cleaning off a book shelf and what did I find which I had no idea I had??? A field service manual for about 14 Yamaha disklavier models, yours listed first.

However I am in USA and shipping is going to get a bit much. If you can't find one locally get back to me and we will figure it out.

Helllo Andreas I have some pdf of service manuals for the MX100A; I can email them to you. There is a very good forum where you should ask your question many very competent technicians are there:
https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/disklavier/info

You you'd hget there the best info on how to treat your problem yourself if that feasible also for spare parts etc. Recently in the topics someone succeeded in replacing the diskettes system with a ssd one ...

or subjects like:

Best of luck

Thanks, Andrew - that sounds almost too good to be true.
Let me first see if I can get Alain's PDF and it is the right one.
So please do not dump your manual yet :-)

Hi,
I see from your post a few years ago you have PDF service manuals for the Dislavier MX100a.
Is there any chance you still have these copies?
My MX100A has just gone on the blink... The floppy dive is making a noise and tripping a relay to the right of the foot pedals.
I think the manual may help.
Many thanks
Jeremy

I am looking for a service manual for the MX100A The unit will play from several seconds then quit. The display indicates that it is still "reading" the disk. The RED LEDs on the driver board will then begin to light up.
