The Pre Out and PWR In for a method to insert an effects loop. The output signal from the Pre Out should be line level so you would not connect this to our microphone input on the PA, but preferably to a Line Level input otherwise you would overdrive the PA's input. When you connect the Pre Out, the 1/4" jack may interrupt the signal so you may lose output to the Champion's amplifier/speaker. If this happens, you need to have a return line with the same line level signal plugged into the AMP In to get your sound back on the amplifier itself.

You should try to contact Yamaha through their customer service/email and include the serial number.

okay James - this is a long shot but I wanted to at least give it a shot. I've copied a bit of text I found from a users forum for Helicon. And is there software to be updated?

The footswitch must be plugged into the unit before you power on.

I cannot find a service manual but maybe worth trying the following:

Volume for auto accompaniment is turned down or muted

Try turning the instrument on whilst holding down the top / highest white key - this will initiate a factory reset.

If problem persists contact your local Yamaha service centre.

A cabinet-maker, woodworker, craftsman, or person with minor construction skills should be able to repair if panels have just been separated, ie not totally crushed.
The cabinets are possibly made from pressboard, a very dense, compact material.
A bit of pre-surgery may be required to get to the support posts inside, then use a glue-gun with hot-melt glue to re-assemble and seal.
Unless the driver itself got hit, the only thing that would affect audio quality would be air leaks from cabinet damage.
This would degrade the bass response and cavity resonance, so speaker would sound softer and with less bass.
So when repairing, seal all interior corners and edges to create air-tight joints.
The outside depends on the covering and finish of your speaker.
If wood, you could maybe buy a roll of counter-top vinyl and glue it on, or if matt-black, I've used black paint on my cabinet's chipped corner.

Symptoms that take a while to happen often are caused by something getting hot. Open it up and try to find something getting hot. That probably won't be the faulty component but it will point to the area that's causing the problem.

Check the power supply voltage and look for a hot component. If it takes a while to bring on the symptom it's probably something getting hot.

Fender Hot Rod... | Answered on Nov 19, 2017

the Heaviest string of each string pair is placed at the top (closest to your nose). In fact, if you look at the nut, (the notched thingy that spaces and holds the strings at the right spacing up by the tuning pegs) the notches in nut are wider than the paired string for this reason. That may not be true on all 12 strings but it is on mine. So the typical arrangement is heavy string, matching string. Heavy String, matching string. Except on the bottom 3 pairs where the actual string thickness can be the same. One caution note here....when tuning a 12 string, tune it a whole step lower. So rather than tuning it at EADGBE, tune it at DGCFAD then use a capo on the 2nd fret to bring the tuning up to EADGBE.
The reason for tuning a whole step lower is because on the top 3 pairs of strings you normally tune the thinner string an octave higher to give that 12 string sound. So if you start tuning at EADGBE, those thinner strings for the top EAD strings are going to be pretty tight and they will snap. So much safer to tune a whole step lower and just use a capo!!! Good Luck

Does this guitar have a esonic 2 system, if so the other pickup is piezo pickup located under the saddle, there should be two wires coming from the pre-amp just remove the pre-amp from the body and make sure that the two wires are still plugged in and attached to the pickups, these are plugs like a small headphone style plug, just check these and the wires are held in by small wire clips,one of the wires may have came out of the clips...hope this helps I will look for a schematic for you and post it if I find one...Good Luck!!!
