BEFORE YOU BEGIN
Power Supply
Setting Up the Music Stand
Your PSR-200 or PSR-300 will run either from batteries or
an optional power adapter. Follow the instructions below according to the power source you intend to use.
Insert the bottom edge of the music stand into the slot
located at the rear of the PSR-200/PSR-300 control panel.
Using Batteries
Six 1.5V D size (SUM-1 or R-20) or equivalent batteries
must first be installed in the battery compartment.
Before replacing the batteries, make sure that the power is turned off.
During battery replacement the memory will be backed up for approximately 1 minute.
1.
2.
3.
Open the battery compartment cover located on the instrument’s bottom panel.
Insert the six batteries, being careful to follow the polarity
markings on the cabinet.
Replace the compartment cover, making sure that it locks
firmly in place.
* The included batteries are for testing purposes. Their service life might
be considerably shortened due to storage conditions, etc.
Caution:
1. When the batteries run down, replace them with a complete
set of six new batteries. NEVER mix old and new batteries.
2. Do not use different kinds of batteries at the same time.
3. In case electrolyte has leaked into the battery compartment,
wipe it off completely before installing new batteries.
4. To prevent possible damage due to battery leakage, remove
the batteries from the instrument if it is not to be used for an
extended period of time.
Auto Power OFF
To prevent unnecessary battery drainage, the PSR-200/PSR300 features an Auto Power OFF function that automatically
turns the power OFF if the instrument is not used for
approximately 10 minutes.
The Auto Power OFF function does not operate when the
PSR-200/PSR-300 is powered from an optional AC Power
Adaptor, as described below.
Using An Optional AC Power Adaptor
Plug the DC output cable from an optional Yamaha PA-3,
PA-4, or PA-40 AC Power Adaptor into the DC IN jack on the
rear panel of the PSR-200/PSR-300, then plug the AC Power
Adaptor into a convenient wall AC power socket.
The internal batteries are automatically disconnected when
an AC Power Adaptor is used. Disconnect the AC Power
Adaptor when not using your PSR-200/PSR-300.
Maintenance
Location
Avoid exposure to direct sunlight or other sources of heat.
Never leave it inside a car where it can get very hot. It may
cause discoloration or deformation. Vibration, excessive
dust, cold, low or high humidity can also cause malfunction.
Handling
Avoid rough handling. Don’t drop or jolt the PSR-200/300
as this can damage the internal circuitry. Pressing too hard
on keys or controls may lead to malfunctions. When cords
are plugged into the rear panel jacks, pay particular attention
not to apply excessive force to them since this may damage
the terminals.
Cleaning
Clean the exterior with a soft, dry cloth. Using chemical
solvents will damage the finish.
Interference Through Electromagnetic Fields
Do not use your PSR-200/300 close to television sets or
other equipment receiving electromagnetic signals as this
could cause interference noise in the other appliance.
Service and Modifications
Your PSR-200/300 contains no user serviceable parts.
Opening it or tampering with it in any way can lead to electrical shock as well as damage. Refer all servicing to qualified YAMAHA personnel.
YAMAHA is NOT responsible for damage caused
by improper use.
Use ONLY a Yamaha PA-3, PA-4, or PA-40 AC Power Adaptor to
power your instrument from the AC mains. Other adaptors may
cause serious damage to your PSR-200/PSR-300.

Rear Panel Connectors
DC IN Jack
The DC output cord from an optional Yamaha PA-3, PA-4, or PA-40 AC
Power Adaptor should be plugged in here when the PSR-200 or PSR-300 is to
be powered from the AC mains supply (refer to “Power Supply” on page 1 for
more details).
HEADPHONES/AUX. OUT Jack
A standard pair of stereo headphones can be plugged in here for private practice or late-night playing. The internal speaker system is automatically shut off
when a pair of headphones is plugged into the HEADPHONES jack. The
HEADPHONFS/AUX. OUT jack can also be used to deliver the output of the
PSR-200/PSR-300 to a keyboard amplifier, stereo sound system, mixing console
or tape recorder.
MIDI IN and OUT Connectors (PSR-300 only)
The MIDI IN connector receives MIDI data from an external MIDI device
which can be used to control the PSR-300. The MIDI OUT connector transmits
MIDI data generated by the PSR-300 (e.g. note and velocity dam produced by
playing the keyboard).
More details on MIDI are given in “MOVING UP TO MIDI” on page 14.

keyboard.
Note that the PSR-300’s keyboard is “touch response” — that
is, you can control the loudness of the sound to a certain
degree according to how hard you play the keys. The degree of
touch sensitivity is different for each voice.
The PSR-200 and PSR-300 feature a maximum polyphony of
28-notes (depending in some cases on the selected voice), so
up to 28 notes can be played simultaneously, including extra
notes played when the automatic accompaniment, split, or dual
voice features of this instrument are used. “Full” will appear on
the MULTI DISPLAY if the 28-note limit is exceeded.
When the power is initially turned ON, the PIANO voice is automatically selected and its number (“00”) is shown on the MULTI
DISPLAY.
Keyboard Percussion
When the DRUMS voice is selected (voice number 99), you
can play 25 different drum and percussion instruments on the
black keys. The percussion instruments played by the various
keys are marked by symbols above the black keys (the white
keys produce no sound).
4.
Select any of the PSR-200/PSR-300’s 100 voices by using
one of the following methods:
Voice Selection Method 1:
Choose one of the 100 voices — numbered “00”
through “99” — shown on the VOICE LIST then enter its
number using the numeric VOICE SELECT buttons. To
select “ELECTRIC ORGAN 1” (number 12), for example,
first press “1” and then “2.” The number “12” should then
appear on the MULTI DISPLAY.
Voice Selection Method 2:
The [+] and [-] buttons in the numeric button group can
be used to increment (increase by one) or decrement (decrease by one) the current voice number. Press the [+]
button briefly to select the voice one number higher than
the current voice, or the [-] button to select the voice one
number lower than the current voice. If you hold the [+] or
[-] button down, the voice number will increment or decrement continuously — simply release the button when
the desired voice number has been reached.
The TRANSPOSE function described on page 5 does not affect the
DRUMS sound.

SUSTAIN
Press the [SUSTAIN] button once
(the indicator will light) and notes
played on the keyboard will decay
gradually after you lift your fingers
from the keys. Press the [SUSTAIN]
button a second time (the indicator will
go out) to turn the sustain effect off.
DUAL (PSR-300 only)
The SUSTAIN effect cannot be applied to accompaniment or rhythm,
When the PSR-300 DUAL function is engaged, sustain is applied to
both voices.
Sustain can be applied independently to the left- and right-hand
voices in the split mode (see “The Split Mode” on page 6). Press a
key to the right of the split point to select the right-hand voice, then
turn sustain on or off for that voice. Press a key to the left of the split
point to select the left-hand voice, then turn sustain on or off for that
voice.
Sustain can be turned on or off for the melody voice during DEMO
playback.
Sustain does not affect voice 97 (VOICE BOX) and voice 99
(DRUMS).
The PSR-300 DUAL feature makes it possible to select and
play two different voices simultaneously.
To activate the DUAL feature press the [DUAL ON/OFF]
button (the indicator will light). When ON, the voice selected
prior to turning the DUAL feature ON will sound simultaneously with a second “dual” voice. When the PSR-300 is initially turned ON, the STAR LIGHT 2 voice (number 80) is
assigned as the dual voice. Any other voice can be selected as
the dual voice while the DUAL feature is ON.
The DUAL feature can be turned
OFF by pressing the [DUAL ON/OFF]
button again.
When the DUAL function is used with the SPLIT mode (see page 6)
different dual voices can be assigned to the left- and right-hand
sections of the keyboard. Press a key to the right of the split point to
select the right-hand voice, then turn DUAL on and select the righthand dual voice. Press a key to the left of the split point to select
the left-hand voice, then turn DUAL on and select the left-hand dual
voice.
When the SINGLE FINGER or FINGERED accompaniment mode is
selected, the DUAL feature applies only to the right-hand section of
the keyboard.
TRANSPOSE
The PSR-200/PSR-300 [TRANSPOSE] buttons makes it
possible to shift the pitch of the entire keyboard up or down in
semitone intervals up to a maximum of 12 semitones (one
octave). Transposing the pitch of the PSR-200/PSR-300 keyboard makes it easier to play in difficult key signatures, and
you can simply match the pitch of the keyboard to the range of
a singer or other instrumentalist.

by the lit bar between the “F” and the “2.”
The SPLIT mode split point is retained in memory and
will be recalled whenever the SPLIT mode is selected.
Note that the split-point key is included in the righthand section of the keyboard.
3.
Select the right-hand and left-hand voices as required.
When the SPLIT mode is first selected the current voice
is assigned to the right-hand keys. If no other left-hand
voice has been selected since the PSR-200/PSR-300 was
turned ON, the ELECTRIC BASS voice (number 82) will
be assigned to the left-hand keys.
The left-hand voice is octave-shifted to provide the best sound
in the left-hand range.
Changing the Right and Left-hand Voices:
Make sure the [VOICE/STYLE] button VOICE indicator
is lit (press the [VOICE/STYLE] button once if it isn’t).
To change the right-hand voice press a key to the right
of the split point. The current right-hand voice number
will be shown on the MULTI DISPLAY and a new righthand voice can be selected in the normal way.
To change the left-hand voice press a key to the left of
the split point. The current left-hand voice number will be
shown on the MULTI DISPLAY and a new left-hand
voice can be selected in the normal way.
When playing in the SPLIT mode, the MULTI DISPLAY will switch
between the left- and right-hand voice numbers according to whether
notes are played on the left- or right-hand section of the keyboard.

The FINGERED mode is ideal if you already know how to
play chords on a keyboard, since it allows you to supply your
own chords for the Auto Accompaniment feature.
1.
Press the [MODE] button as many times as necessary
until the FINGERED indicator lights — this selects the
FINGERED mode.
2. If necessary, set the split point as described below:
Setting the FINGERED Mode Split Point:
The split point for the FINGERED mode is initially set at
the G2 key. It can be set to any other key by pressing the
desired split-point key while holding the [SPLIT POINT
CHANGE] button.
The split point is shown on the MULTI DISPLAY for
as long as the [SPLIT POINT CHANGE] button is held.

they are played in “root position”. Seventh flatted fifth
chords will only be recognized if either the root or flatted
seventh is the lowest note. For diminished and augmented
chords, the lowest key pressed is assumed to be the root.
An octave — i.e. two notes played exactly one octave apart —
will be detected as a chord suitable for major or minor, with the
note played as the root note.
All other FINGERED mode operations are the same as in the
SINGLE FINGER mode.
AUTO HARMONY
THE CHORD MEMORY
This sophisticated feature automatically adds appropriate
harmony notes to a melody you play on the keyboard. You can
choose from 5 different types of harmony.
The PSR-200/PSR-300 CHORD MEMORY allows you to
“record” and play back chord sequences created using the
Auto Accompaniment feature. You can record a complete
accompaniment part, for example, and then play along with it
using both hands — you’re free to use the entire keyboard for
your performance rather than being limited to only the upper
keyboard area.
The CHORD MEMORY also has three separate “banks”
that can be used to record different accompaniments. The
banks can be “chained” — i.e. they will play back in any
specified order. This allows you to record a verse and chorus
in different banks, for example, then “chain” them in the desired order for playback.
Only a single note can be played at a time on the keyboard (or the
right-hand section of the keyboard when in the SPLIT mode) when
the AUTO HARMONY feature is used.
1.
Use the [AUTO HARMONY] buttons to select a harmony
type between “01” and “05.”
or
The first time the AUTO HARMONY
button is pressed the current harmony type number will
appear on the MULTI DISPLAY. While the current harmony type is still showing on the display, press the AUTO
HARMONY
button briefly to increment (increase by
button to decone) the harmony type number, or the
rement (decrease by one) the harmony type number. Holding either button causes continuous incrementing or
decrementing. The selected harmony type number will be
shown on the MULTI DISPLAY while the [AUTO HARMONY]
or
button is pressed (the letter “H” will
appear before the harmony type number).

are present).
Recording
1.
Pick out an accompaniment style that is appropriate for
the type of music you want to record.
2.
Press the [BANK 1], [BANK 2], or [BANK 3] button
while holding the CHORD MEMORY [REC] button. This
engages the “record ready” mode for the selected bank.
The bank indicator will flash, the metronome will sound,
and the three dots along the bottom of the MULTI DISPLAY will flash at the currently selected tempo. Press the
[REC] button again if you want to disengage the record
ready mode and perform some other function.
If the NORMAL or SPLIT mode is selected, the FINGERED mode is automatically selected when the record
ready mode is engaged. If the FINGERED or SINGLE
FINGER mode is selected, no change occurs.
Play.
In the SINGLE FINGER or FINGERED mode, the left-hand
chords determine the harmony notes that will be applied to the
right-hand melody.
In the NORMAL mode, all harmony is based on a C major
chord.
If AUTO HARMONY is used at the same time as the SPLIT
feature (see page 6) harmony will be not be applied to the lefthand voice. Left-hand chord fingerings are used to determine
the harmony applied to the right-hand voice. Usable fingerings
are the same as for the FINGERED mode.
If AUTO HARMONY is used at the same time as the DUAL
feature (see page 5) harmony will be not be applied to the
second “dual” voice.
If the synchro start mode is turned off by pressing the
[SYNCHRO START/ENDING] button prior to playing, right-hand
melody and harmony without accompaniment can be produced
— but the left-hand chords will still have to be fingered to produce the appropriate harmony.
3. Before actually beginning to record, you should set a
tempo that will be easy to record at using the [TEMPO]
buttons.
11
THE CHORD MEMORY
4. Recording will begin as soon as you play a chord on the
left-hand section of the keyboard (SYNCHRO START
operation).
Recording can also be started by pressing the [START/
STOP] or [INTRO/FILL IN] button. In this case on the
rhythm will begin without bass and chord accompaniment
until you play the first chord on the left-hand section of
the keyboard.
1.
Press the [CHAIN] button while playback is stopped to
engage the “chain ready mode.” You can disengage the
chain ready mode by pressing the [CHAIN] button again.
2.
Press the [BANK 1], [BANK 2], and [BANK 3] buttons in
the order that you want them to play back — up to 8 steps
can be programmed. A synthesized voice will announce
the order of the programmed banks each time a BANK
button is pressed. The voice will stop if you attempt to
program more than 8 steps.
3.
Press the [START/STOP] button to begin chain playback.
5. Play the required chords.
6.
Press either the [START/STOP] button or the
[SYNCHRO START/ENDING] button to stop recording.
Events recorded by the chord memory are: Style Number, Chord
Timing, Chords, Intro, Fill In, Ending.
Whenever you record using the CHORD MEMORY, any previously
recorded material in the same bank will be erased.
If you make a mistake while recording, simply press the [START/
STOP] button and begin again from step 2, above.
If the AC power adaptor is disconnected with no batteries inserted,
the contents of the memory will be lost.
If the chord memory becomes full while recording, “End” will appear
on the MULTI DISPLAY.
1.
Press the [BANK 1], [BANK 2], or [BANK 3] button to
begin playback of that bank. If you press a different
BANK button during playback, playback of the newly
selected bank will begin from the top of the next measure.
4. Playback will stop automatically when an ending is encountered (i.e. the [SYNCHRO START/ENDING] button
was used to stop recording), otherwise the entire chain
will be repeated until stopped by either the [START/
STOP] or [SYNCHRO START/ENDING] button.
A previously recorded chain can be played simply by pressing the
[CHAIN] button and then the [START/STOP] button.
The contents of the CHAIN memory is retained even when the
power is turned off.
2.
Play along on the PSR-200/PSR-300 keyboard if you like.
You can also add fill-ins using the [INTRO/FILL IN]
button, or change the tempo during playback.
3. Playback will stop automatically when the end of the recorded sequence is reached if the [SYNCHRO START/
ENDING] button was used to stop recording, otherwise
the chord sequence will be repeated until stopped by either the [START/STOP] or [SYNCHRO START/ENDING] button.

MOVING UP TO MIDI
A Brief Introduction to MIDI
MIDI, the Musical Instrument Digital Interface, is a worldstandard communication interface that allows MIDI-compatible musical instruments and equipment to share musical information and control one another. This makes it possible to create “systems” of MIDI instruments and equipment that offer
far greater versatility and control than is available with isolated instruments.
The PSR-300 MIDI Connectors
The PSR-300 MIDI IN connector receives MIDI data from
an external MIDI device which can be used to control the
PSR-300. The MIDI OUT connector transmits MIDI data
generated by the PSR-300 (e.g. note and velocity data produced by playing the keyboard).
Simple MIDI Control
Most MIDI keyboards (including the PSR-300, of course)
transmit note and velocity (touch response) information via the
MIDI OUT connector whenever a note is played on the keyboard. If the MIDI OUT connector is connected to the MIDI
IN connector of a second keyboard (synthesizer, etc.) or a tone
generator (essentially a synthesizer with no keyboard), the
second keyboard or tone generator will respond precisely to
notes played on the original transmitting keyboard. The result
is that you can effectively play two instruments at once, providing thick multi-instrument sounds. The PSR-300 also transmits “program change” data when one of its voices is selected.
Depending on how the receiving device is set up, the corresponding voice will be automatically selected on the receiving
keyboard or tone generator whenever a voice is selected on the
PSR-300.
The PSR-300 is capable of receiving the same MIDI data,
so a second MIDI keyboard connected to the PSR-300 MIDI
IN connector can be used to remotely play the PSR-300 and
select voices as required.
(PSR-300 only)
MIDI Sequence Recording
The same type of musical information transfer described
above is used for MIDI sequence recording. A MIDI sequence
recorder can be used to “record” MIDI data received from a
PSR-300, for example. When the recorded data is played back,
the PSR-300 automatically “plays” the recorded performance
in precise detail.
or button is pressed during external sync
If the TEMPO
mode is engaged, “EC” (External Clock) will appear on the
display.
External synchronization is automatically selected when MIDI
clock is received. If the external MIDI clock data is not received,
internal clock operation is automatically resumed.
Velocity sensitivity is dependent on the selected voice.
*Refer to the Remote Control Mode “MIDI
Implementation Chart” on page 34 for more details.
Remote Control Mode Transmission
The following points apply to MIDI data transmitted by
the PSR-300 in the Remote Control mode.
PSR-300 MIDI Settings &
Functions
The Remote Control Mode
The Remote Control mode should be used when the PSR300 is to be connected to a second keyboard which it is to
control. If the PSR-300 is being used as the receiving device,
it can be played from an external keyboard while the panel
controls — including auto accompaniment — operate
normally.
Remote Control Mode Selection
The Remote Control mode is automatically selected
whenever the PSR-300 is turned ON. If the Multi Voice
Mode has been selected (see below), however, the Remote
Control mode can be re-selected by pressing the numeric
VOICE/STYLE [0] button while holding the CHORD
MEMORY [REC] button. “rc” will appear on the display.
Remote Control Mode Reception
The following points apply to MIDI data received by the
PSR-300 in the Remote Control mode.
MIDI start messages control PSR-300 rhythm, chord memory
record start, and chain play start in the same way as the panel
[START/STOP] button.
MIDI stop messages have the same effect as pressing the panel
[START/STOP] button when a function is running.
OMNI ON means that reception can occur simultaneously on all
available channels (1 through 16). When a single receive channel
is selected, reception only occurs on the specified channel.
In addition to note and velocity data, the PSR-300 responds to
program change, sustain ON/OFF, start, stop, and MIDI clock
messages.
Transpose settings affect received MIDI note numbers.
Transmitted note numbers are not affected by the Transpose
setting.
In the NORMAL or SPLIT mode, all keyboard data is transmitted
via the specified MIDI transmit channel. When the FINGERED or
SINGLE FINGER mode is used, only MIDI data corresponding to
notes played on the right-hand section of the keyboard is
transmitted via the MIDI OUT connector on the specified MIDI
transmit channel.
Remote Control Mode MIDI Transmission
Normal Mode
SPLIT Mode
Data from the left- and right-hand sections of the keyboard is
mixed and transmitted over the same MIDI channel.
FINGERED, SINGLE FINGER Mode
Data from the left-hand section of the keyboard is not transmitted.
15
MOVING UP TO MIDI (PSR-300 only)
The MIDI program change number corresponding to the number
of the selected voice is transmitted when a voice is selected.
A MIDI START message is transmitted whenever the rhythm or
accompaniment is started, and a MIDI STOP message is
transmitted whenever the rhythm or accompaniment is stopped.
The same applies to demo and chord memory start/stop
operations.
Accompaniment style, demo, chord memory, and transpose data
is not transmitted.
*Refer to the Remote Control Mode “MIDI
Implementation Chart” on page 34 for more details.
The Multi Mode
The Multi mode should be used when the PSR-300 is to be
used as a tone generator, for example, receiving data from a
second MIDI device (such as a sequencer). In this mode the
PSR-300 can receive on multiple MIDI channels, each channel
corresponding to a different voice. The PSR-300 panel
controls will not function when the Multi mode is selected.
Multi Mode Selection
If the Remote Control mode is currently selected, the
Multi mode can be re-selected by pressing the numeric
VOICE/STYLE [0] button while holding the CHORD
will appear on the display.
MEMORY [REC] button.
n
Multi Mode Reception
In the Multi mode the PSR-300 functions as a multitimbre tone generator, allowing different voices to played
on all 16 MIDI channels (channel 16 is reserved for rhythm
only). Since the PSR-300 employs the Yamaha Dynamic
Voice Allocation system, it is not necessary to specify the
number of notes that can be played via each channel. A
maximum of 28 notes can be played simultaneously via all
channels.
MIDI note and velocity messages received on a MIDI channel will
affect only the voice selected for that channel.
Velocity sensitivity for each voice is set to a dynamic range of 48
dB linear.
SUSTAIN ON/OFF messages are ignored.
A program change number will select the voice controlled via the
channel on which it is received. The new voice number is shown
on the display for approximately 2 seconds. The program change
number is the same as the voice number (00 — 99).
Program change messages on channel 16 are ignored.
MIDI start, stop, and clock data will be ignored.
*Refer to the Multi Mode “MIDI Implementation Chart” on
page 35 for more details.
16
Multi Mode Transmission
The default transmit channel in the Multi mode is the
same as that in the Remote Control mode, and can be set
via the same procedure (see below). The transmitted data is
also the same as in the Remote Control mode, except that
no MIDI start/stop message transmission occurs.
Keyboard note ON/OFF data is transmitted via the specified MIDI
transmit channel, but the internal tone generator does not sound
(LOCAL OFF).
The transmitted note numbers are not affected by the instruments
TRANSPOSE setting.
When a new voice is selected, the corresponding MIDI program
change message is transmitted on the specified MIDI transmit
channel. The internal voice assigned to that transmit channel will
also change accordingly. The program change number is the
same as the voice number.
The channel-16 program change number will not be transmitted.
Refer to the Multi-mode MIDI Implementation Chart” on
page 35 for more details.
MIDI Receive Channel Selection
Press the numeric VOICE/STYLE [2] button while holding
the CHORD MEMORY [REC] button. The current MIDI
receive channel number or “ALL” will appear on the display.
While still holding the [REC] button press the key
corresponding to the desired receive channel (C1 ... E2),
confirm that the desired channel has been selected on the
MULTI DISPLAY, then release the [REC] button. The E2 key
selects the OMNI ON mode — “ALL” appears on the display.
The receive channel setting only applies in the remote
control mode.
MIDI Receive Channel Selection
Press the numeric VOICE/STYLE [1] button while holding
the CHORD MEMORY [REC] button. The current MIDI
transmit channel number will appear on the display. While still
holding the [REC] button press the key corresponding to the
desired transmit channel (C1
confirm that the desired
channel has been selected on the MULTI DISPLAY, then
release the [REC] button.
The transmit channel is automatically set to channel 1 and
the receive channel is automatically set to OMNI ON when the
power is initially turned ON.
TROUBLESHOOTING
If MIDI note numbers higher than C#6 are received
when the DRUMS voice is selected (in either the
Remote Control or Multi mode), the corresponding
percussion sounds are produced.
C#6 = Voice “Five”
D#6 = Voice “Six”
F#6 = Voice “Seven”
G#6 = Voice “Eight"
A#6 = Click Lo
C#7 = Click Hi
Data received via the MIDI IN connector is not retransmitted via the MIDI OUT connector (i.e. no
echo-back) in either the Remote Control or Multi
mode.
Something not working as it should? In many cases what
appears to be a malfunction can be traced to a simple error that
can be remedied immediately. Before assuming that your
PSR-200/PSR-300 is faulty, please check the following points.
1. PROBLEM
The PSR-200/PSR-300 speakers produce a “pop” sound
whenever the power is turned ON or OFF.
CHECK
This is normal and is no cause for alarm.
2.
PROBLEM
No sound.
CHECK
Are the MASTER VOLUME control and accompaniment volume levels turned up high enough?
3.
PROBLEM
Rhythm won’t start or no rhythm sound.
CHECK
Is the accompaniment volume turned up high enough?
Are you sure you pressed the START button?
Perhaps the PSR-200/PSR-300 is in the SYNCHRO
START mode, so all you have to do is start playing.
4.
PROBLEM
Auto accompaniment won’t function. No lower keyboard sound.
CHECK
Auto accompaniment won’t function if the FINGERED
mode is selected and you’re using SINGLE FINGER
type fingering or improper chord fingering.
Are you sure you’re playing in the left-hand section of
the keyboard when the FINGERED or SINGLE FINGER mode is selected?
The left-hand section of the keyboard will produce no
sound if synchro start is disengaged in the FINGERED
or SINGLE FINGER mode.
5.
PROBLEM
The accompaniment key changes while you’re playing.
CHECK
Perhaps you accidentally pressed a key in the left-hand
range.
6.
PROBLEM
Auto accompaniment chords don’t seem to change properly.
CHECK
Are you playing chords that the PSR-200/PSR-300 can
recognize (see fingering chart on page 19)?
7.
PROBLEM
The sound is distorted or intermittent.
CHECK
In this case, your batteries are probably flat and need
replacement.
17
TROUBLESHOOTING
8.
9.
PROBLEM
Sustain produces little or no effect.
CHECK
The sustain effect may not sound as deep as it normally
does when used during accompaniment or demo
playback. This is normal.
PROBLEM
Abnormal operation not listed above. Complete lack of
control.
CHECK
The internal microprocessor may have been “locked up”
due to static electricity or other causes. Turn the instrument OFF for a minute or so, then turn it ON again.
If the power can not be turned off by using the
[POWER] button, remove the batteries and/or unplug the
AC power adaptor.
