So I powered it on as usual, and it just sits there with the Yamaha logo glowing on the display.  Anyone know why this might be happening and if there might be a fix that does not involve taking it to a repair shop?  Thanks!

Time for a trip to the repair shop, unfortunately.

The Motif will hang on start up if there is a midi problem. Be sure nothing is attached to it - no pedals, midi cables, nothing - just the power cord. If you get the same result, then as Dave suggests, off to the shop.

Re: My Motif ES stopped working

Once during rehearsal my ES7 just stopped making sound.  All lights were on, everything looked perfect.  I could change patches but still no sound.

I carefully checked cords etc., then did a reboot and all was normal.  This freaked me out because to reboot with samples takes a few minutes and if the gig were live I’d have had a problem.

After that I got a dedicated triplight surge/line conditioner for the boards and all has been stable.
