Fire warning

Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit. A burning item may fall over and cause a re.

Do not open

Do not open the instrument or attempt to disassemble the internal parts or modify them in any way. The instrument contains no user-serviceable parts. If it should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and have it inspected by qualied Yamaha service personnel.
If you notice any abnormality
If the AC adaptor cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged, or if there is a sudden loss of sound during use of the instrument, or if any unusual smells or smoke should appear to be caused by it, immediately turn off the power switch, disconnect the adaptor plug from the outlet, and have the instrument inspected by qualied Yamaha service personnel.


Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage to the instrument or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold the plug itself and not the cord. Unplug the AC power adaptor when not using the instrument, or during electrical storms. Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a multiple-connector. Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or possibly cause overheating in the outlet.


Do not expose the instrument to excessive dust or vibrations, or extreme cold or heat (such as in direct sunlight, near a heater, or in a car during the day) to prevent the possibility of panel disguration or damage to the internal components. Do not use the instrument in the vicinity of a TV, radio, stereo equipment, mobile phone, or other electric devices. Otherwise, the instrument, TV, or radio may generate noise. Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall over. Before moving the instrument, remove all connected adaptor and other cables. When setting up the product, make sure that the AC outlet you are using is easily accessible. If some trouble or malfunction occurs, immediately turn off the power switch and disconnect the plug from the outlet. Even when the power switch is turned off, electricity is still owing to the product at the minimum level. When you are not using the product for a long time, make sure to unplug the power cord from the wall AC outlet. Use only the stand specied for the instrument. When attaching the stand or rack, use the provided screws only. Failure to do so could cause damage to the internal components or result in the instrument falling over.


Always make sure all batteries are inserted in conformity with the +/- polarity markings. Failure to do so might result in overheating, re, or battery uid leakage. Always replace all batteries at the same time. Do not use new batteries together with old ones. Also, do not mix battery types, such as alkaline batteries with manganese batteries, or batteries from different makers, or different types of batteries from the same maker, since this can cause overheating, re, or battery uid leakage. Do not dispose of batteries in re. Do not attempt to recharge batteries that are not intended to be charged. When the batteries run out, or if the instrument is not to be used for a long time, remove the batteries from the instrument to prevent possible leakage of the battery uid. Keep batteries away from children. If the batteries do leak, avoid contact with the leaked uid. If the battery uid should come in contact with your eyes, mouth, or skin, wash immediately with water and consult a doctor. Battery uid is corrosive and may possibly cause loss of sight or chemical burns.


Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off the power for all components. Before turning the power on or off for all components, set all volume levels to minimum. Also, be sure to set the volumes of all components at their minimum levels and gradually raise the volume controls while playing the instrument to set the desired listening level.


When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thinners, solvents, cleaning uids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths.


Handling caution
Do not insert a nger or hand in any gaps on the instrument. Never insert or drop paper, metallic, or other objects into the gaps on the panel or keyboard. If this happens, turn off the power immediately and unplug the power cord from the AC outlet. Then have the instrument inspected by qualied Yamaha service personnel. Do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might discolor the panel or keyboard. Do not rest your weight on, or place heavy objects on the instrument, and do not use excessive force on the buttons, switches or connectors.
Do not use the instrument/device or headphones for a long period of time at a high or uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.

Saving data

Saving and backing up your data
Some data items (page 41) are automatically saved as backup data in the internal memory even if you turn the power off. Saved data may be lost due to malfunction or incorrect operation. Save important data to external device such as a computer.
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modications to the instrument, or data that is lost or destroyed.
Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use. When using a power adaptor, even when the power switch is in the STANDBY position, electricity is still owing to the instrument at the minimum level. When you are not using the instrument for a long time, make sure you unplug the AC power adaptor from the wall AC outlet. Make sure to discard used batteries according to local regulations.

Formats and functions

GM System Level 1: GM System Level 1 is an addition to the MIDI standard which ensures that any
GM-compatible music data can be accurately played by any GM-compatible tone generator, regardless of manufacturer. The GM mark is afxed to all software and hardware products that support GM System Level.
XGlite: As its name implies, XGlite is a simplied version of Yamahas high-quality XG tone generation format. Naturally, you can play back any XG song data using an XGlite tone generator. However, keep in mind that some songs may play back differently compared to the original data, due to the reduced set of control parameters and effects. Style File: The Style File Format combines all of Yamahas auto accompaniment know-how into a single unied format.

Using an AC Power Adaptor
q Make sure that the power of the instrument is off
(the backlit display is off).
Use the specied adaptor (PA-130, or an equivalent recommended by Yamaha) only. The use of other adaptors may result in irreparable damage to both the adaptor and the instrument.
w Connect the AC power adaptor to the power supply
e Plug the AC adaptor into an AC outlet.
Unplug the AC Power Adaptor when not using the instrument, or during electrical storms.
AC power adaptor AC outlet
For battery operation the instrument requires six 1.5V AA size, LR6 or equivalent batteries. (Alkaline batteries are recommended.) When battery power becomes too low for proper operation, the volume may be reduced, the sound may be distorted, and other problems may occur. When this happens, make sure to replace all batteries, following the precautions listed below. If necessary, also make sure to save all important User data (see page 62), since custom panel settings are lost when the batteries are removed.
Use alkaline batteries for this instrument. Other types of batteries (including rechargeable batteries) may have sudden drops of power when battery power becomes low, possibly resulting in loss of data in the ash memory. Make sure to install the batteries with the proper orientation, maintaining the correct polarity (as shown). Incorrect battery installation may result in heat, re and/or leaking of corrosive chemicals. When the batteries run down, replace them with a complete set of six new batteries. NEVER mix old and new batteries. Do not use different kinds of batteries (e.g. alkaline and manganese) at the same time. If the instrument is not to be in use for a long time, remove the batteries from it, in order to prevent possible uid leakage from the battery. Please use the power adaptor when transferring data to ash memory. Batteries (including rechargeable types) can be drained rapidly by this type of operation. If the batteries do become drained during a data transfer, both the data being transferred and the data currently in the transfer destination will be lost.

Using Batteries

q Open the battery compartment cover located on the
instruments bottom panel. w Insert the six new alkaline batteries, being careful to follow the polarity markings on the side of the compartment. e Replace the compartment cover, making sure that it locks rmly in place.
Never connect or disconnect the AC power adaptor when the batteries are installed in the instrument and the power is on. Doing so will turn the power off, possibly resulting in loss of the data being transferred and the data currently in the transfer destination during transferring or recording a data.
