    you aren't really telling me anything I don't already know, any more tips?

  • euan_m Aug 24, 2010

    I'm just not sure if our 2 year old might have pushed a button somewhere and locked us out. We often play the sogns off a USB but now when we select USB and press play nothing happens. Is there a button that he may have pressed?

    now working perfectly, thank you

The EPROM IC might be defective and might need a change but with the help of the Yamaha service.
Howeverr leave the set ON ffor several hours if you have not used or sparingly used.Sometimes moisture within the set can cause these issues which ccan clear up when the capacitors charge up or the board warms up.The interface is having some errors /conflicts that cause this conectivity.
So keep playing , do not switch off .
Hope this tip helps.

    Since you mentioned about the 2 year Old, please try and see the song selection keys if the display is showing any indication of the selection. Is it possible for any liquid to have gone in?

    Does the selection of tones/beats get activated? If yes then the main section is working alright.

    Depress and switch all the touch buttons and infer if the touched keys are indicated in the display.

    If the said songs are selected in list but is not playing there could the error mentioned in my earlier post. Check with the Yamaha call centre for a reference to this fault for confirmation.

Hello.
Your clavinova is due for a cleaning and a tuneup. Call your local dealer and take it to them to save the cost of the house call. J.

I can't connect a usb device with music on to the clavinova.


You have to format the USB stick using the Yamaha Clavinova. The reason is that the keyboards expects certain file/folder structures on the stick. If you format it on the computer, the computer will not know what files or directories to create for the Clavinova when it formats the stick.

Hello! I have the Kurzweil Mark Pro TWOi piano. Suddenly some keys make strange sounds through the speakers, like distrortion or noise. The speakers seem to be fine, because the demo songs play perfectly....


Try to re-initialize the unit(factory reset). If the keys are the problem then the rubber key contacts need to be cleaned or replaced. Contact a local service center for help.

How do I activate speakers on Clavinova CVP 601 piano after having disconnected the head phones


It is likely the contacts on the headphone jack are sticking. If you're lucky, spraying some contact cleaner into the input will loosen it. Be careful not to get the spray onto the rest of the cabinet o the keys. If that doesn't work, you will need to take the unit apart so you cab get to the part to clean it.

Why does my casio p-45 piano only play one demo song? There are 16 available. I followed the instructions in the manual. Any ideas...?


Well friend,
According to page 24 of the manual here http://support.casio.com/pdf/008/ap_45_e.pdf
It says
Demo tunes
While holding down the MUSIC LIBRARY button,
press the PLAY/STOP button
.....and try to play a specific demo tune ........
After playback starts, press the tone button that
corresponds to the tune you want to play.from the list.

ALSO in the Troubleshooting section page 35 For DEMO tunes UNPLUG HEADPHONES

If it doesn't work, then you need to get a Technician to look at it.

HOW TO REPLACE CONTACT STRIP OF YAMAHA CLAVINOVA CVP 92 DIGITAL PIANO ?


Successful repair of my Yamaha Clavinova CLP 880

The principal to replace your contact strip will require one further step to that shown here where the customer has replaced the felts.

When you have the keybed out you will see the contact strip part 220. This is held in place behind the circuit boards. Remove boards, replace strip and reassemble.

It might be worth considering felts whilst you have the keyboard in bits as these wear out.

I have a clavinova that doesn't make sound


Try the headphone jack... if there is sound there, then it is either the speaker amplifier or a loose cable. It would be rare for BOTH speakers to fail completely.

Can I replace the pedal unit to the Yamaha Clavinova CVP-75?


I can't solve the problem, but just wanted to sympathize because I have the same problem. My pedal is broken on my Yamaha Clavinova cvp85a. It worked wonderfully for years but finally it broke.
I'd be in the market for buying a new pedal or fixing the old one. But I've not found any suggestions in any of these forums for either solution.

Yamaha clavinova won't play C natural in any octave


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
