As an electrical engineer, I suspect that one end of the resistance element or the voltage supplied to it is broken. This could be a broken circuit trace on a board or failure of the pitch wheel pot. This is iff the device has a center tapped pot. IF IT DOESN"T (schematics are hard to find on this) then the bias setting for the pitch wheel may be wrong. First thing would be to look if the the wheel has slipped on the control shaft.

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).

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

With no octave keys pressed the wx5 is playing an octave too low


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.

Can't get the guitar tuned


Tell her to tune all strings below the pitch and always go up to the pitch, never down because of slack in the tuning keys. The gears will have a slight bit of play in them. If coming down and stopping at the right place, they will loosen and loose tuning when she lets go. Tuning from below and go up to the pitch will correct that. (more noticeable on electric) Also, I would take it to a shop to have the intonation checked and tuned if necessary.

I am trying to replace several of my Suzuki hand chimes that are so out of tune I can't really use them anymore and can't find a supplier who will sell them individually. Can you help? I need 1 G-4, 2...


Suzuki does sell individual replacements, I bought a few last year. If there are a few unusable chimes now, you can try to tune them, nothing to lose, I was able to tune 8 of ours and 2 others were too far gone and had to be replaced. They tune like a tuning fork, which is what they are. If the chime is flat, you either file the tips, in effect making the legs shorter, this must be done evenly or sustain will be affected, or, the inside of the legs near the tips can be filed, again evenly, to reduce mass. If the chime is sharp, filing is done down in the "******" area.

E5 flat and off pitch


Inspect for damage, especially hairline cracks. Also inspect for contamination or dirt that will change the resonant frequency. AND VERIFY the tuner you are using is accurate. Do not compare to a piano which MAY be out of tune... in fact, pianos are STRETCH tuned, that is the higher notes are SHARPED and the LOW notes are FLATTED deliberately. Comparing your chimes to a piano, the E5 would appear flat. Use a good electronic tuner to verify the pitch, not a piano,

I can't get my Yamaha WX5 to sustain, or play more than one note. I got it to do it long ago by accident, but can't seem to get it to do it again. I think I was using a Yamaha Keyboard for the sounds at...


Reread your manual pages 14 and 15. Note page 14 tells you that "When using a monophonic tone generator such as the VL70m, the Normal Hold and Follow Hold functions CANNOT be used." I have both the WX5 and WX7. I also have both the VL70m and the WT11. The VL70m has a lot of better sounds, is editable and has better effects the WT11 allows you to use both follow modes. Any polyphonic midi keyboard with a midi in jack will allow you to use the follow modes. Read the directions on page 9 of your WX5 manual to hook your WX5 to the keyboard. Set your keyboard to receive all midi channels. I think it is Omni On, Poly. Hope this helps.

My tyros 2 has fallen down very bad.now the left bass octave is off pitch(half note Higher) when i play the keybord with the accompaniaments.It works right ONLY when the ACMP is disambled what can i do....


Likely you have damaged the pitch bending wheel and offset it.

Try to pull it on pitch with the wheel... IF YOU CAN, then the alignment of the detent of the wheel has been disturbed and unit will need servicing... There are a lot of screws to open this and several very tender cables that can be damaged... I would recommend you take it to a shop experienced on this keyboard.
