TX802 noise issue
2013-06-17 14:07:28 GMT
Since there's been a bit of talk about the TX802 lately, especially with regards to replacing the old capacitors, I thought I'd ask if anyone's had the same issue I have.
My machine recently started outputting (on stereo outs, headphones and individual outs) a low-level and digital-sounding noise, as if many notes were going on and off at once.
The noise/notes will change both over time and depending on which patches are selected, which initially had me thinking it must be a chip and therefore unfixable unless I find another TX802. However after testing a little I realized that any notes played via MIDI do not seem to be affected by the noise (they will play normally and louder than the noise) and also if I turn all 8 voices off the noise doesn't change, so maybe it actually is a capacitor issue?
I paid a Yamaha dealer too much money to have a look at and and tell me it's unfixable, without actually being able to tell me which components were the issue.
Anyone experienced something similar (the dealer assured me he had and that was the end of the line for his TX802) and had any luck repairing? I love the sound of this machine so would happily pay to get it recapped if that would fix it.
