YAMAHA found an issue that after initial release of the first version Vitraise unit to ELS-01/01C, registration memory button's LED would not turn on.
If you are trying to purchase a Vitarise unit from another company it could be the old version of Vita-rise unit.
To fix this problem please follow the following instructions.

2)Original 01X does not need to replace PN1 sheet but if you have upgraded 01X (from 01 or 01C) you will need to replace PN1 sheet (Only if your serial number is same as listed in here)
You will need to replace PN1 Sheet for following serial number models before you install ELSU-V02 to 01/01C.

many thanks for a straight forward purchase and shipping of the Vita-rise upgrade unit. It arrived safely a few days ago and I've installed it without any problems. I took the opportunity to change the colour of the Electone trim to white to give the organ a new look to complement its upgrade!
I can't wait to find my way around the new sounds.
Yamaha have modified the unit slightly since you issued the fitting instructions. There is no longer a switch on the circuit board to change language to English so it would be best to delete that bit from your instructions. Although it didn't take too long to remove the cover and search for a switch which wasn't there, it would be best to skip that bit! I attach a photo of the board which shows the new layout without the switch. They have also deleted a small circuit board on top left (compared to your photo in the instructions) internet board?. I simply changed the language option to English via utility screen.
I also suggest a small but useful addition to the instructions. When installing the power cable, attach string tightly to the top of old cable before extracting it downwards, then after pulling it through to the bottom, remove the old cable and tie the string to the new cable end to pull it back upwards through the inside of the leg. A potentially very awkward and difficult job made easy! Photo attached.

We got success story from who has Export model STAGEA (240V) in UK.
Please use the feedback as you suggested. I'm very happy to say the vitarise kit was successfully installed. I have attached a photo!
Yes, I have a 240V Stagea model, originally bought from Hong Kong. The 240V model is known as an 'Export Model'. There are two main differences between these models and the Japanese models, which are:
- 240V, 50 Hz Power supply.
- No speaker connectors between main console and speaker box. The DM box and speaker box are hard-wired.
These two differences made a big difference to the way in which the vitalise kit was installed. My engineer had to do some extra tasks so as the vitarise kit could be installed. The extra tasks were:
1. remove the old 240V power supply from the ELS-01C DM box.
2. remove 110 volt power supply from the Vitarise kit.
3. Replace vitarise power supply with old 240V power supply from ELS-01C.
4. Remove Speaker connector in Vitarise unit.
5. Replace with old speaker connector from ELS-01C DM box.
With regards to points 1-3 above, the engineer said he thought the power supply maybe a universal 240V/110V supply, but he could not be sure.
Steps 4-5 must be completed on any export model Stagea. The export models have a wire connecting the DM box to the speaker box. Japanese models have connectors which are not used in the export models.
I hope this may help you. Please do contact me for more information.
With very best wishes and thanks,

Many thanks for your email.
As an introduction, I should explain what the vitarise unit consists of. As well as the larger screen, the vita-rise upgrade has an entirely new DM box, which is the metal box contained in the lower part of the main electone console. The DM box contains most of the boards and processors that make the electone work. The DM box also contains the 220 volt power supply.
There are two main differences between the ELS-01C export model Stageas (that we have) and the Japanese models.
1. 100 volt power supply.
2. Connection of speaker box underneath the main electone keyboard unit.
Issues with the Vitrarise Unit
1. 100 Volt Power Supply.
When you receive the new DM box, it will have a 110-volt Japanese power supply pre-installed. It is NOT 220/100 volt switchable! You will need to ask your engineer to take out the old power supply from the ELS-01C DM box and install it in the new ELS-02 DM box. There is also a new power chord supplied - it is now a standard EU “8” power plug.
2. Speaker Connectors
On Japanese ELS-01C electones, there were plugs installed on the wires connecting the main keyboard unit to the speaker box. This was so that people could disconnect the speaker box when taking the electone apart for transport. In the export models, Yamaha did not build in this facility. I have attached a picture of my modification to make my electone do the same. On yours, you will find that there are no plugs at all. I guess what you will have to do is ask your engineer to disconnect these wires from the old ELS-01C speaker box and reconnect them to the new ELS-02C DM box. This sounds difficult, but is actually quite easy.
These are the only two issues that I remember. I wish you good luck with your purchase and please let me know if I can be of any further help to you.
With best wishes from the UK,
Hello mr. Ogata,
As promised I send you some pictures with the instalation differences between stagea export models and japanese models. Like Cris already the only difference are the speakerunit an powerunit.
I hope the picture make it even cleare for those people who have an export model.

Just to let you know the upgrade unit arrived yesterday and I spent the afternoon installing it. The instructions were fantastic and made installing it a stress-free experience. It's all working and sounding beautiful :-)
A couple of comments on your installation guide:
On page 4, step 1 my DM box only had 21 screws. The screws on the bottom next to the bottom left and right corners no longer exist.
When I'd finished and powered on my Stagea the VA buttons on Lead Voice 2 didn't work. I initialised the Stagea through the Utility menu and that fixed the problem.
The only step I failed to manage was step 9 on page 10. I mistakenly assumed the upper unit was hinged on place and managed to lift the whole upper unit off the lower unit before realising it wasn't. As I had it in my hands I just placed it on the floor and so didn't use the support units. It's probably worth mentioning in your instructions that the upper unit is only resting in place. This is probably the only step where having two people to lift it would be beneficial.
All in all, your instructions were detailed and precise and allowed me to follow them with confidence.
