KX-76/88 Firmware needed

Unread post by MStodulka » Mon Jul 11, 2016 9:20 pm

Hi,
I have a KX-88 Masterkeyboard in very good condition, but the program-EPROM lost its data. After a long search for the error I finally found the reason for the total failiure of the keyboard and now it seems that nobody has this binary or the EPROM itself. Only 5 minutes away from getting it repaired...
I hope someone here ca help me to find that binary or a source where I can get the EPROM.
Thank You.

Greetings from Germany.
Martin

Hi Martin,

It's not beyond the bounds of possibility that SOMEONE in here may have (or know where to get) what you require, but in the meantime, I would recommend to telephone Yamaha in Germany and ask about it. Certainly, UK and US users generally report that Yamaha do keep service "spares" for long times.

It sometimes involves an enquiry to Japan - which they would make on your behalf, but it doesn't hurt to try . . . . :lol:

Hi parametric,
thank you for your reply. I contacted the German Yamaha Service before and they answered that they don't have any firmware for the KX-88. They told me to try it in the US or UK Yamahaforums...
So, I`m still hoping to find someone who perhaps had the same problem in the past and stored the file. Or someone who can read out the EPROM of his KX-76/88 and send me the file.

Fair enough Martin . . . .

I would recommend you talk to "Dusty" at the UK Tech Support, but that's a big ask (for you) from Germany . . . .

Perhaps Saul might be able to fast-track an inquiry for you via his contacts?

Is the EPROM in the KX-88 soldered or socketed?
