HelloFollowup: Success ... replacing C404 solved the problem. I reinserted all 76 screws and it still works.
Thanks again everyone for your advice and support!
Hello 1 have an yamaha P95 without function no sound, no led i have read :is this corectly to start the power supply AM Bord without any another board i must connect pswon permanently from the kathode D402 to ground? what is the function for pswcnt?@MrChips, many thanks for that offer. The service manual is mostly the same as the P85, and can be found here. The relevant schematic is on the next-to-last page.
I actually have a digital IR thermal sensor that I can use, and could power up the board, short PSWON to ground to enable +12V, and then poke around with the gun to see if I can find a particularly hot location. It seems most likely that C404 or the regulator itself is shorted (IC401), since even my crude ohmmeter gives slightly lower reading in that area. Other than those and C405, I don't see any other components that take +5D and ground.
Tentative plan: I can probably lift out C404 without too much trouble, though the regulator is another story since it is bolted to a heat sink and hard to access. However, after removing C404, if the short remains, I can clip the output of the voltage regulator to see if that fixes the short. If not, I can run a wire to repair it, although that will mean that I struck out). C405 is under that massive heat sink.
Here is a photo of the area:
