It seems that one of the keys on my 2000 has developed an occasional "friction" which I feel when pressing down or releasing the key. It's sort of the same feeling that you get when you push a key a bit to the right or left as you press down, like a scrathing feeling. Will this go away? I'm within a 30 day warranty, so I may just return it. Has anybody else experienced this problem on Yamaha keyboards?

I had a 2000 and I had a ton of problems to name a few: LED`s that would not turn off, setting that would not be save even though I saw that hourglass icon, buttons that had a very non-tactile feel (some were good some weren`t) and a "hiss" comming from the speakers even though the volume was at min. Do you have these problems or is it just the key?

Return it ASAP. Most of us PSR2000 owners have had good luck with it. I purchased and own two PSR2000s. One of them had to be returned because of speaker buzz. I've been gigging heavily with one of the PSR2000s for over 3 months without any problems - that's not that long. Let's see if it lasts a year. I have a feeling it won't. We'll see.

I gig and play quite a bit on my 2000 too. No related problems so far, though I can see how these problems could develop over extended use/time. As I stated before, I initially purchased the PSR2000 as an interim arragner keyboard till the next generation top of the line models arrive. I was surprised to find myself taking the 2000 out even more than my main axe (KN5000). I"m still enjoying both the KN5000 & PSR2000, though I'm keeping my eyes/ears open for the upcoming KN7000.
