Humming Sound In Yamaha PSR e403 Keyboard
My nephew called me to check on his Yamaha Keyboard with the problem of humming sound. On testing I observed the humming sound coming from both the speakers and it kept gradually increasing. Hence we opened the keyboard for inspection.
This type of Humming sound problem are most likely due to either earthing problem or due to some faulty capacitors hence I decide to directly check the amplifier section.
On visualize inspection everything looks ok. I have removed the PCB; there are very few components on this section.
So I have downloaded IC data from the internet for reference for IC BA 5417 and I have decided to test the capacitors which are directly grounded from IC (Because I am getting Humming from both the speakers if you get humming from only one speaker then test respected output pins i.e. pin number 2-3 and 5-6) so I have started with big capacitor which is connected to pin no 4 and 8 which is supply voltage to IC.
I found the 1000uf 25 volt e-cap bad and this is the reason why it causes the humming sound.
After replacing the capacitor I powered “ON” the Keyboard and tested it for ½ an hour. The humming sound was gone. My nephew was so happy and I can’t describe in words about his expression.
