“Yamaha SY22 Synth w/Road Case & Manual

I’m the 2nd owner of this thing, but I’ve had it for nearly 30 years. It works, but could use some minor repair. Details below.

You’ll need a new power supply. $20 on Amazon will get you a new 12V power supply adapter. The one included(a 10V, but it’ll take 10 or 12) with this has a short in the cable, and works most of the time, but is on its last legs.

As for actual repair needs, there appears to be just one:

The far left key(Low C/the last key on the keyboard) is dead. No sound is generated from this key. I can hear what sounds like a tiny screw rolling around inside the keyboard, so maybe that has something to do with it. Again, I’m not a technician, so I’ve been reluctant to dig into the guts of this thing.

Otherwise, all the sounds and functions are operational. The Vector Control still works great, and makes for some cool effects. It’s a little worn, but still in reasonably good shape, considering the age, and it’s seen almost no action for over a decade, so I think it’s mechanically sound, aside from the issues mentioned above.

It also includes a Roadie Case by Hybrid(probably worth $100 by itself), that’s remarkably sturdy, and still in great condition, along with the original manual. I’ll even throw in an X-brace keyboard stand, if you want it.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

The bad: Output left & right does not work but, the phone output does with any problems. No static or crackle.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Yamaha SY-22 61-Key Vector Synthesizer, Very Good condition. Light wear from regular use, previous owner engraved name on synth & power supply. A peculiar 90s Yamaha synth, designed around the concept of Vector Synthesis, allowing you to combine two FM sounds & two sample-based sounds, controlling the blend with the Vector Control joystick. Sound-wise, it’s a pretty versatile machine if you’re willing to sit with the extremely-Yamaha buttons & screen interface, lots of wild sounds & modulation capability within. Despite having no filter, the onboard FX are also plenty of fun to process sounds with too! Includes original power supply.” Click here to visit listing on eBay

“Thanks sy22 is the keyboard version of the tg-33. This unit is in very good used/vintage condition. Please see pictures for details. All the keys are straight and feel great. Every knob, button, key, is working 100% except the the line output…however the headphone out is working perfect. I bought this knowing that the line outs weren’t working and planned to fix it because I read it was a very simple/cheap fix, however I ended up just using the other phones output and felt no need to replace the others. So just to be clear, the unit is in perfect working condition except the line out does not work. ” Click here to search for synths on eBay

“You are viewing Vintage YAMAHA SY 22 synthesize with Dynamic Vector Synthesis. Please note this is not my subject but I have had the key board working through the headphone jack. I have not played through the Midi Out no Midi system. As far as I can tell all the functions work but I could not get the pitch bend to work. All the keys work but two have minor damage to the front face. The transformer is missing replacement can be obtained on ebay. The back of the key board is scratched and screws missing hence low starting price and no reserve.”
