Look in your manual under "transpose". The transpose feature shifts the keys up or down often up to a full octave. This allows you to play in ANY music "key" you know and generate sound in a different one for say a vocalist who only sings in another...

Sir, have a Yamaha PSR 330, very recently the left speaker is not working. Do guide me for the same.


If it was playing fine and just stopped working while you were playing it, it's possible the speaker has failed, or a wire has come off. It is likely something you cannot fix yourself, and should find a local music store, like Guitar Center, who can repair it for you. It's generally not a very expensive repair at all.

If the sound stopped working from one side after you were playing with some controls or editing some voices, you may have set the panning all the way to the right, which would cause no sound to come out of the left speaker. In that case, you would simply need to set the panning to the center again while in editing mode.

If you are not too familiar with the editing features on the PRS 330, and not sure how to set the panning to the center again, you could always simply reset the unit to it's factory settings once again, while will return all the voices, effects, panning, etc. back to like the unit was when it was first taken out of the box and turned on. Here's the process to reset the Yamaha PRS 330 back to it's original settings -

Restoring the default (factory-programmed) settings While holding the C7 key (right-most key on the keyboard), press the power switch to turn the power on.
This operation erases backup data in this instrument (including backup settings in the Function mode) and
restores the factory default settings. The User Songs and the external Songs stored to internal memory will be
retained

None of that works and you do need to have someone look at the unit, here is a link to the Yamaha Authorized Service Locator to find the nearest authorized service center near you -

How can I send recordings to my laptop? I have a usb connector and i want to connect my portable grand to my laptop but the laptop does not detect the piano and i don't know what to press on the piano...


Hi mjaynneb,

I could be wrong here but I have a number of keyboards and the USB connection is usually for Midi control from software like Cubase and the like. If by recording you mean recording Audio then I think you'll find that it won't be possible using the USB port.

Midi is great and I use it a lot. It enables you to arrange music using your computer. Also you can record the music you play on the Keyboard on the computer as Midi. This means that the computer can play back through your arranger what you just played. Bear in mind though that Midi is purely numbers that represent notes, velocities and note duration so is not actually audio.

My keyboards have the ability to record to SD card or a Hard Drive, however if this is not a feature of your arranger then probably your best bet for recording audio from it is by using the Audio out ports of your arranger and using a connecting lead to a good low noise sound card on your computer. As you are using a laptop you can find external usb sound cards/interfaces so that should do fine. Then you could probably use something like Audacity which is free software, to record to a wav file.

I hope this helped.
Kind Regards
mparkyn

PSR-S500; left part of display blurred.


The display is an LCD. From your limited description, it would appear that, electronically, at least, everything is working correctly, but perhaps the LCD has become warped or damaged.

Yamaha has a parts order website, but you would need to create an account to actually order the part, AND you would need to know the part number of the LCD. Not only that, but you would have to perform the repair yourself - - - not recommended, unless you're an electronics geek already. ~LOL~ But if you want to take a look, here is their parts web site:

https://www.yamaha24x7.com/yamahaoms/Login.aspx

I'm assuming you're in the U.S.A. If you really wish to talk to Yamaha about the part, they do have a number you can call: (888)892-6242

Prior to making the call, be sure to write down the model# and serial# of your keyboard. It is probably found on the back or under side of the unit. They will advise you on the availability of the part.

Another alternative is to go on Ebay and search for PSR-S500 under the category Musical Instruments.

You can locate an authorized Yamaha dealer at this web site:

http://usa.yamaha.com/dealers

Problems like this are a REAL PAIN in the you know what, and I know how aggravating it is to have to spend money on a repair for an instrument you've already paid over $500 for. I'm assuming this is an out-of-warranty situation.

Anyhow, good luck on getting this fixed, and let us know how things work out.

Thanks ~Jim :-)

The keyboard is showing sign of power input but the screen is not lighting and produces no sound


1. Try the volume

2. Your adapter may not be the proper voltage/amperage. If the adapter has ratings listed, make sure they match the keyboards ratings.

3. Try it with the headphones. If they work and the speakers don't, you've narrowed down your problem. There may be some damage or wiring problem within where the board meets the speakers, and/or before processing.

4. Try it with batteries. If that works, you need a new adapter.

The computer processor in these is NOT subject to the viruses like PC's are.

Do a factory reset on the keyboard to restore factory settings.
