BIG problem with my Yamaha Genos!

Unread post by Davhol »

I've had my Yamaha Genos since 2014. Back then, believe it or not, the cost was 1/3 less...i.e. $4,000 vs today's price of $5,999 or $6,000 !!

But I digress...onto my issue...
My Genos was working beautifully and, as you all know, it's an unbelievably awesome instrument!
Suddenly one day, to my dismay, everything I played was all garbled, both the melody and the accompaniment! There was no way to figure out what I was playing.

I took it to my favorite service repairman and he determined that I'll have to get a new motherboard. The cost?...$586.80

I ordered it yesterday from Yamaha and paid for it immediately. I purchased one day shipping so it will arrive tomorrow. I can't wait! I feel empty inside not being able to play my Genos.
My service repairman said it'll take about 2 hours or so to complete the work, which isn't bad at all...

Thanks in advance for your response!

Hi Dave

Are you sure we are talking about the Genos? You said you have had it since 2014? But it was only released in 2017 :confusion-confused:
