Please have a look at the instruction manual again. The 8ve keys are assignable/editable for up or down. You can change the range of the scale this way. I own a WX7 and a WX5. They both work this way.

How do i fix a Yamaha P95 that sounds Es with Fs and Bb with Bs across all the octaves?


Whether it happens to all of the key?
If yes, transpose setting may have changed. Change the setting to normal (0).
If the normal transpose, but tuning is still not standardized, check Pitch Setting.
To Restore Standard Pitch setting:
Hold down the A-1, B-1, C0 and C # 0 keys simultaneously and press any key between C3 and B3.

If the above procedure is still no effect, try resetting the factory settings / Initialize overall: :
This is the steps:
Initializing the Settings
When you initialize the settings, all backup data stored to this instrument will be initialized and reset to the factory default settings.
Turn off the power to the instrument. Then, simultaneously hold down the C7 key (right-most key on the keyboard) and turn the power on again.

NOTICE
Do not turn off the power to this instrument while it is initializing the data in its internal memory (that is, while the button indicators are flashing).

If this instrument somehow becomes disabled or malfunctions, turn off the power to the instrument, then perform the initialization procedure.

Is there a way to program the whole keyboard to play 1 octave lower?


You can use TRANSPOSE/SETTING button.
Each press the TRANSPOSE/SETTING button cycles through the setting screens. If you accidentally pass the screen you want to use,keep pressing the TRANSPOSE/SETTING button untill the screen appears again.
To lower by one octave,set the value to -12

You also can use PIANO SETTING button.
Find the setting in page 07 of PIANO SETTING.

Single and Finger,is chords mode.
In Single,by press one key (eg:A) then chords A is heard,and so on.
In Finger,you must press 3 keys.Example: G-B-D,then you heard G chord. D-F#-A is D chord.
In Finger,lets say you press A chord and want to change to C chord by press one key C only,there's nothing change untill you press C-E-G.
Low, is for chords octave low.
Chords Off,no chords can be play,it mean overall full piano mode..
Single,Finger,Low, can be activate with Sync Start button.

Volume of some keys (one octave) are lower than rest of the keyboard, any advise please ?


Take it in for repair. There may be a broken line for the velocity sensing of that octave of keys that is causing the velocity to be sensed low. The repair is NOT DIY if this is the case.

Hi, The C note in 4th octave, when played immediately after or along with D and B of the 3rd octave, has a touch response problem. It is terribly lower than the level set and to your surprise, gives out a...


The key contacts are dirty. Each key has two contacts to implement VELOCITY sensing. When a certain one fails to contact, then the note is sounded at full volume. The contacts are conductive rubber pills pressed onto circuit traces. Clean only with 99% isoprophyl alcohol and Q tips very gently. It takes a LOT of dis-assembly and care to do this. It might be better to take this to a repair shop. There is a possibilty that a liquid was spilled into your keys as well. Cleaning is the answer.

When I play my Bass Clarinet, the bottom joint won't play the higher octave. It will play everything except the 3rd octave B-E. I can't find any leaks.


usually If a certain note doesnot play the note before it is not seating correctly. Check all pads that they are sealing behind the bad notes, also make sure the octive key is sealing.

I have a 6 month old keyboard and have found that middle octave A and lower octave note C are sounding really off when played together. What could be the problem? The store where I purchased it has...


Thisis hard to troubleshoot... The keyboard insynths are usually scanned as a matrix... If a disconnect diode has failed, then wrong notes can be triggered. There is USUALLY rows of the diodes on the circuit board where the keys hit. There are usually TWO contacts per key in order to sense key velocity. The lkey contacts are usually conductive rubber pills pressed against circuit traces under the keys. One sometimes needs to clean these contacts using 99% isoprophyl alcohol and Q tips.
I would do further testing of ALL combinations of notes played together to see if possibly any others show up as that could point to a particular failure.

Wurlitzer organ, highest key plays note one octave too low.


If this is the kind of organ with the wire sticking out of the key that makes contact with the bus bar to create the note you will have to make sure that key is operating the same as adjacent keys. The busbars have to be clean and the contact wires have to be clean. Sometimes when cleaning the wires they will spring out of place and not make contact with the appropriate bus bars. Check that key against the rest and see what you find. Hope this helps.
