Yamaha PSR-510.

A friend of mine got this off of his nephew because he never plays it and gave it to me. It's needing a detailed cleaning for sure. And the pitch wheel is very wobbly. I think I'm going to take it apart and see if I can fix it. It still works but there's definitely something wrong with it. I've only been playing for 6 months but my DP has weighted keys, the keys on this feel really strange to me. Seems pretty cool though, lots of sounds. Anyone have this one?

Wow, this takes me back!

I 'adopted' a PSR-510 in my early teens and spent many hours creating arrangements/accompaniments using the varied sample set.

Of course, we're going back a few years now, but I recall being very impressed with some of the demonstration songs - especially the 'stadium rock' track. wink

The verbal "Are you sure?" confirmation was pretty cool too!

Cheers,
James

I've got the pitch wheel all fixed up. The nut was loose on the potentiometer. No big deal. Though, I did get it all cleaned up and put back together.... the damned pitch wheel is now backwards. HAHA! What a dumbass. Down bends up and up bends down. It doesn't bother me and I don't feel like taking it apart again anyway.

James, I wanted to ask you something about that keyboard. Do you recall when it was made? I've found a download of the manual and it's copyright is '93. Does that sound right to you? If so, I didn't think this keyboard was that old. lol It's held up pretty well.

Thanks

Congrats on the pitch bend fix! wink

Not sure about the manufacturing date - I bought my second-hand and it didn't come with a manual.

There are still a few online resources available to download alternative patches. Some of the organ/EP sounds are quite usable!

Cheers,
James
