I've had my Clavinova for over 15 years now and the sound is becoming distorted. Is this an inevitable problem or is there some simple maintenance needed?

The Clavinovas are maintainable. Since you have not described the distortion we can't give much help. If there is difference between notes on the keyboard, the contacts may be getting dirty. If the audio is distorted for everything, the amplifier or speakers may need maintenance.

I have a Yamaha Clavinova clp 360; it no longer turns on.


Paul, inside of the Clavinpva at the rear where the power cable connects to the board. there is a 124 volt 1.25 amp fuse. the old type that is a glass cylinder with silver ends. it's an easy fix and will cost about $3.00 for a pack of four. You have to9 take out all of the screws on the bottom of the piano in order for the top to slide off, but you can do it in about 15 minutes!

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.

My Clavinova is about 15 years old. It was playing fine, then middle C started sounding tin-like, then sound stopped for the entire instrument. Can this be fixed? I live in South-Central PA.


I am sure it can be repaired. First thing is to check the power supply. Here is a servuice manual for a CLP380... You did not mention the modelk number of your unit. I may be able to find exact manual.

I know that a Clavinova cannot get out of tune, but - in the lowest two octaves - my mom's CLP-115 sounds as if it is. Might this be a problem with memory, speakers or circuitry? Any idea how we might fix...


Realize that it MAY be stretch tuned like a real piano. A real piano is tuned increasingly sharp above middle C and increasingly flat below middle C. At the ends, the the off tuning is about 20 to 22 cents sharp and flat. The Clavinova should emulate this. In a real piano this makes it sound better and prevents some cross coupling of harmonics. Read up about stretch tuning on the internet. The Clavinova gets its reference from a quartz crytal oscillator and they just dont' get out of tune.

I have a peavey bandit 112 transtube guitar amplifier. Ive had it for nearly 15 years, but over the last few its become quite noisy when turned on even if nothing is plugged into the input. This is on both...


This has several vacuum tubes and those are suspect. Take a pencil and tap the glass of the smaller tubes to look for noise changes. You may have to take off the tube metal shield to do this.
If you have got 15 years of life from the tubes that is great. Also suspect are electrolytic filter caps.
If you are not electronically adept, take it in for repair.

Clavinova: no sound from one key only. Rest perform ok.


Likely the key contacts are dirty. These are likely conductive rubber type and have to be cleaned with 99% isoprophyl alcohol.

With the amount of disassembly required to get at the contacts, you best clean them all while you have it apart.

Use 99% (not 70% rubbing alcohol) and Q tips to clean both the circuit board and the rubber "pill" contacts.

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 CLP 260


hi...
Your L/R jacks in the back need to connect to the "line-in" connector on your sound card.
I think the jacks on the Clav are 1/4 inch. Go to Radio shack and ask for an adapter that will take two 1/4 inch plugs/cable and convert it to a 1/8 inch stereo plug.
The Midi connects From (keyboard) To (soundcard)
Cables are available at any music store
