No sound from Yamaha keyboard
Since your keyboard works fine with the PC. That means the problem is with the keyboard's Speaker. Either your speaker cable or speaker itself is not working... you have to identify that whether the problem is of speaker wire or speaker.... see that whether the service manual of your gadget is available or not.. if available then purchase the same. It will help you a lot for while repairing
Hope this has helped you....
My daughter got a SK560 Keyboard as a present and we cant get the volume to work

take it back to the store, try a 2nd one.
it's no good.

I have a dgx-505 yamaha
I know this is an old post, but I just found my own solution to the same problem. I downloaded the 64 bit driver for the CP300 keyboard and it worked.
Where and how can I buy a replacement keyboard for Yamaha CVP 305M? Thanks, Michael
There is a well documented problem that occurs with the keybed on some of these models due to a manufacturing fault. Take a look at the keys that are sticking. Is the gap on either side of the key the same ? If not then the key normally leans slightly to the left rubbing on the adjacent key causing the sluggish action. The fixing tab at the back of the key breaks causing the spring pressure to push sideways.
You can just replace the offending key but the problem will eventually return. You could replace the whole keybed but this is a very expensive fix.
Keys are around £ 15.00 each.
Replacement keybeds around £ 450.00

Sustain pedal on Yamaha DGX not working
I had the same problem, its to do with the polarity of the pedal. My pedal had a polarity switch on the bottom just flick this over and this should fix the problem. Otherwise another solution was to hold the pedal down and turn the keyboard on.
I have a yamaha electone hs4, The foot pedals do not work.
JM: Your problem is this: There are rubber washerson the bolt that holds the pedal on. They are shot. Most likely Yamaha doesnot have the parts.Go to the plumbing dept of a hardware store and get some faucet washers and replace them. YYou can tell if the washers are shot by tiping over the organ and looking at the pivot bolt. Most likely that is yoiur problem. I am an organ tech. and have replaced many of these. DM
Hold down top C key whilst turning, this initiates a factory reset so any settings you have made resulting in the smear should be returned to normal.
Yamaha digital piano clp 170
This is a common problem with Yamaha keyboards. The problem is caused by worn-out rubber contacts in the keyboard assembly. In my old Clavinova CLP-500, there was one long rubber contact strip under the keys with two parallel strips of semiconductor material. The Clavinova circuitry determines key velocity by measuring the timing between when the key hits the first and second strips of semiconductor material. The harder you play a key, the less time it takes the key to hit the second semiconductor strip after hitting the first.
After years of playing the keyboard, the keys eventually cause tears in the semiconductor material and this messes up the timing measurement for key velocity. The only solution is to take the keyboard apart and replace the rubber contact strip with a new one.
I got rid of my CLP-500 four or five years ago and got a new CLP-170. The CLP-170 is now having exactly the same problem that the CLP-500 had. Yamaha has re-designed the rubber contacts in the CLP-170 so that there are now eight individual contact strips instead of one long one. The problem is essentially the same, though. You have to take the keyboard apart and replace the worn out rubber contacts.
Here are the part numbers for the rubber contacts that need to be replaced in the CLP-170:
V8286600 Rubber Contact, 12 keys, D-C# Qty. 6
V8286800 Rubber Contact, 11 keys, A-C# Qty. 1
V8286700 Rubber Contact, 5 keys, D-C Qty. 1
I suggest you also get a copy of the CLP-170 service manual, part number 001677. It has descriptions of all the steps necessary to take the thing apart and put it back together again. You'll also need a "rod" (which is just a long dowel), part number TX000670. Before you take the circuit boards off the keyboard assembly, you have to insert the dowel between the keys and the frame to keep the keys from falling back and getting in your way. A 5-foot long 1/4-inch dowel will probably work. (I haven't yet taken apart my CLP-170, and I don't have Yamaha's "rod," so I'm not sure if 1/4 inch is the right size or not. I'll report back here if it's not.)

I just used them to by some parts for a Clavinova and they were in stock, accepted credit cards and delivered within 24 hours.
Yamaha DGX-620 blank screen or screen with vertical lines
I`ve had a similar problem with a Korg that I use at the club and on gigs, I don`t know whether Yamaha use a similar method or not but when I stripped mine down, I found that the glass LCD panel is connected to the PCB via a ribbon cable which gets sandwiched between the PCB and the LCD panel when screwed up, It`s not soldered or hard wired to the PCB, It was producing intermittent connections between the uPC and the display panel where parts of letters and symbols were missing. When I removed the panel, I found that it was oxidized so I used some switch cleaner which doesn`t leave a residue (Don`t use lubricant or WD40 as this will destroy the LCD panel by penetrating between the layers of Liquid Crystal rendering it useless) and gently cleaned the contacts on both the LCD and PCB panels (Don`t spray the panel or this could penetrate) by spraying a small amount onto a tissue then gently wiping this into the nooks and crannies with a nail brush then wiping off the excess with another tissue. I`ve had no problems since, (touch wood). Please use extreme caution when working with these panels as they are dedicated to your keyboard and therefore extremely expensive to replace. If yours has an extension lead from the LCD panel to a plug on the PCB, it should be a lot easier to clean this one cable where it enters the plug on the PCB than mine was, but still use extreme care. Best of luck, Ian
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!
Yamaha 88 key piano grand plays wrong pitches w/ changing volume
If it has a sequencer/ recorder built in, you have the ability to change the pitch/ detune by using some key strokes after initiating the program mode. If your not sure how to do that, try unplugging the keyboard for thirty seconds and push the power button while it's unplugged, then plug it back in. Any better? What model is it.
