Yamaha clavinova won't play C natural in any octave

My yamaha clavinova CLP-260 will not play the note C natural in any octave. I haven't spilled anything on the keyboard. I haven't used the piano in several months; last time it was working fine. The piano demo piece plays properly. Any advice would be appreciated.

    On playing several keys on the Matrix 12 keyboard one of the keys fails. But if I then play it again right away it plays. What can that be?

    is there a way to reset the keyboard back to original factory settings? E-Key will not play on all octaves.

Hi ...
There are flexible cables that connect the keys to the main electronics. The connectors for those cables sometimes age poorly..
It is fixable. But dont "get taken" on a repair.
If it's just resoldering a few points,it shouldnt be more than $100.00
to fix

Why won't my clavinova clp 150 play?


Hi, Could be a lot of different things.

Does it play through headphones?
If so this implies an amplifier issue.
Does it play when you press the demo button - if so it could be a keyboard issue.

Carry out a factory reset by holding down highest note whilst turning on. Watch screen does it report anything?

Let me know what it says and I will try and help.

I have a Yamaha Clavinova CLP-50 Digital Electric Piano serial number 19071 and would like to find its age. Many thanks Phil


If you will turn the instrument upside down you will find a date of production somewhere. My CLP-50 has been built in 1985 for example, I discovered in 2006. (I have forgotten the exact location of this date.)

Our Yamaha clavinova CLP-115 is buzzing, even with


Without power to the unit no sound should be generated. Make sure there are no other connections.

MAYBE you have a wall transformer behind it that is buzzing. MANY wall transformers develop buzz.

Another source is flourescent lights and even some of the low voltage halogens have noisy transformers in the base.

Yamaha Clavinova CLP 260


hi...
Your L/R jacks in the back need to connect to the "line-in" connector on your sound card.
I think the jacks on the Clav are 1/4 inch. Go to Radio shack and ask for an adapter that will take two 1/4 inch plugs/cable and convert it to a 1/8 inch stereo plug.
The Midi connects From (keyboard) To (soundcard)
Cables are available at any music store

Yamaha digital piano clp 170


This is a common problem with Yamaha keyboards. The problem is caused by worn-out rubber contacts in the keyboard assembly. In my old Clavinova CLP-500, there was one long rubber contact strip under the keys with two parallel strips of semiconductor material. The Clavinova circuitry determines key velocity by measuring the timing between when the key hits the first and second strips of semiconductor material. The harder you play a key, the less time it takes the key to hit the second semiconductor strip after hitting the first.
After years of playing the keyboard, the keys eventually cause tears in the semiconductor material and this messes up the timing measurement for key velocity. The only solution is to take the keyboard apart and replace the rubber contact strip with a new one.
I got rid of my CLP-500 four or five years ago and got a new CLP-170. The CLP-170 is now having exactly the same problem that the CLP-500 had. Yamaha has re-designed the rubber contacts in the CLP-170 so that there are now eight individual contact strips instead of one long one. The problem is essentially the same, though. You have to take the keyboard apart and replace the worn out rubber contacts.
Here are the part numbers for the rubber contacts that need to be replaced in the CLP-170: V8286600 Rubber Contact, 12 keys, D-C#   Qty. 6 V8286800 Rubber Contact, 11 keys, A-C#   Qty. 1 V8286700 Rubber Contact, 5 keys, D-C   Qty. 1
I suggest you also get a copy of the CLP-170 service manual, part number 001677. It has descriptions of all the steps necessary to take the thing apart and put it back together again. You'll also need a "rod" (which is just a long dowel), part number TX000670. Before you take the circuit boards off the keyboard assembly, you have to insert the dowel between the keys and the frame to keep the keys from falling back and getting in your way. A 5-foot long 1/4-inch dowel will probably work. (I haven't yet taken apart my CLP-170, and I don't have Yamaha's "rod," so I'm not sure if 1/4 inch is the right size or not. I'll report back here if it's not.)
Good luck, Howard
