The "Breath" jack is for a "Breath controller" NOT headphones!!!

The breath controller was a pressure sensitve device you blow into that generates a signal to modulate the sound.

Put the headphones in the jack "PHONES"
I know, I have an SY77.

P90 sustain sound won't stop some times when am playing


You could have-
dirty contacts on the switch inside the pedal
dirty contacts in the jack the pedal cable plugs into
a cold/loose solder joint where the cable connects to the plug or to the switch.
If you rule those all out it's an internal problem with the pedal, which you can check by using another pedal, or it's internal to the P90, which will need to go to the shop.

Yamaha CP 300 broken headphone jack


Some keyboards use the amp output sockets for headphone use.
You might need some adapters for your headphones.
If it fell in, you would see an empty hole. This would be unlikely because it is held on by two screws. If all fails, buy an amp with a headphone jack input. Plug the keyboard into the amp and use the amps jack.

A bought an Yamaha DGX 640 grand a week before and the note sustain for a longer duration and overlaps with the current playing notes. I checked the sustain in the function setting and it is also showing ...


The function setting is for the PANEL sustain (Page 68 of your manual)

The other method of sustain is by footswitch or pedal option. See page 13.

If you use a footswitch, it needs to be a normally open contact type. If you plug a Roland type in, it is opposite polarity and will sustain UNLESS the pedal is pressed. Make sure nothing else is plugged in the sustain jack... headphones that are inadvertently plugged in there would sustain.

Hi. I'm Using PX330 as a midi controller that plays "Galaxy pianos" in cubase 5. I'm interested in buying a continuous sustain pedal (the one I got with the piano is an On\Off pedal). can you...


The Yamaha FC-3 uses a TRS (three conductor plug). The PX330 does NOT use TRS jacks for the sustain and sostenuto pedals so they are NOT compatible with the Yamaha FC-3. Therefore I would conclude that continous sustain that the Yamaha pedal would be used for is NOT supported.

I have a Yamaha ypp 100 keyboard that was sitting idle for awhile. When I turned it on and started to play there was no sound/an extremely faint sound from the speakers.


Try headphones... possibly the switch contacts on the headphone jack which disconnect the speaker when headpones are plugged in. If you can hear via the headphones, check the switch contacts. Also look for a loose cable.

Contacts can oxidize when idle for a long time.

Do I need to buy a seperate headphone jack adapter in order to put my headphones in? The headphone jack seems too small. If so what should I buy?


What type of headphone connector do you have? The Yamaha keyboard headphone jack is a 3.5 mm stereo jack (like on a computer headphone jack). So if the headphones have a 1/4" plug, you need a 1/4" to 3.5 mm adapter.

I hope this helps.

I am not getting any sound from my Yamaha DGX 200,


From Yamaha DGX 200 Manual
  • Q-There is no sound even when the keyboard is played or when a song is being played back.
  • A-Check that nothing is connected to the PHONES/OUTPUT jack on the rear panel. When a set of headphones is plugged into this jack, no sound is output. Check the Local Control on/off. (See page 69.)
