Hello,
I bought my DGX660 last in December 2016, it was working fine until last week, I started to hear a strange distortion when I press the sustain pedal.

Its only 1 year warranty, that expire a week ago, and the diagnostic fee from the service center is 100 USD (to much), any one has the same issue?

Thanks,

As far I know, the sustain pedal for DGX660 is a plug in. Is that right? Not an integral part of the unit. Is that right?It could be that the problem is the pedal and not the keyboard? Can you try a different pedal?

I already try with 3 different sustains .... I don't think it could be a problem on the pedal.
Here is how it sounds, it's more notorious by the end of the video:

Omg I feel for you, that is terrible.

$100 just to look at it is a bit steep for a $800 keyboard.

I would be tempted to dump it and buy another by a different manufacturer.

It doesn't sound distorted. It sounds out of tune.

1) Try a factory reset and remove the pedal. See if the problem continues. If so get back to us.

2) Check to see if the pitch bend wheel is out of position and whether or not it makes any difference.

3) See if you have the pedal plugged into the right input.

With a little more info we might be able to help.

Are you sure you haven't got the pedal set to "portamento" function than "sustain"?
See p.21 of the manual.
(assigning specific pedal function)

I would try for a warranty claim. Since its just one week past and we just went through Christmas and New Year. Yamaha may honour your claim if they have any morals.
First try Gary's and Y-Man's suggestions. If all fails get onto Yamaha without delay. Tell them the problem started over a week ago during the holiday season.
best of luck. Get onto it straight away!

Hey Biggles, that is far too radical!:eek:
