PRECAUTIONS
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING
* Please keep this manual in a safe place for future reference.
WARNING
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of serious injury or even death from electrical
shock, short-circuiting, damages, fire or other hazards. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
Power supply/AC power adaptor
Water warning
• Only use the voltage specified as correct for the instrument. The required voltage
is printed on the name plate of the instrument.
• Use the specified adaptor (PA-3C or PA-3B or an equivalent recommended by
Yamaha) only. Using the wrong adaptor can result in damage to the instrument
or overheating.
• Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may have
accumulated on it.
• Do not place the AC adaptor cord near heat sources such as heaters or radiators,
and do not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, place heavy objects
on it, or place it in a position where anyone could walk on, trip over, or roll
anything over it.
Do not open
• Do not open the instrument or attempt to disassemble the internal parts or
modify them in any way. The instrument contains no user-serviceable parts. If it
should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and have it
inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet
conditions, or place containers on it containing liquids which might spill into
any openings.
• Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.
Fire warning
• Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit.
A burning item may fall over and cause a fire.
If you notice any abnormality
• If the AC adaptor cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged, or if there is a
sudden loss of sound during use of the instrument, or if any unusual smells or
smoke should appear to be caused by it, immediately turn off the power switch,
disconnect the adaptor plug from the outlet, and have the instrument inspected
by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
CAUTION
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage
to the instrument or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Do not attempt to recharge batteries that are not intended to be charged.
Power supply/AC power adaptor
• When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold
the plug itself and not the cord.
• When the batteries run out, or if the instrument is not to be used for a long time,
remove the batteries from the instrument to prevent possible leakage of the
battery fluid.
• Unplug the AC power adaptor when not using the instrument, or during
electrical storms.
• Keep batteries away from children.
• Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a multiple-connector.
Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or possibly cause overheating in the
outlet.
• If the batteries do leak, avoid contact with the leaked fluid. If the battery fluid
should come in contact with your eyes, mouth, or skin, wash immediately with
water and consult a doctor. Battery fluid is corrosive and may possibly cause
loss of sight or chemical burns.
Battery
Location
• Always make sure all batteries are inserted in conformity with the +/- polarity
markings. Failure to do so might result in overheating, fire, or battery fluid
leakage.
• Always replace all batteries at the same time. Do not use new batteries together
with old ones. Also, do not mix battery types, such as alkaline batteries with
manganese batteries, or batteries from different makers, or different types of
batteries from the same maker, since this can cause overheating, fire, or battery
fluid leakage.
• Do not expose the instrument to excessive dust or vibrations, or extreme cold or
heat (such as in direct sunlight, near a heater, or in a car during the day) to
prevent the possibility of panel disfiguration or damage to the internal
components.
• Do not use the instrument in the vicinity of a TV, radio, stereo equipment, mobile
phone, or other electric devices. Otherwise, the instrument, TV, or radio may
generate noise.
• Do not dispose of batteries in fire.

Setting Up
This section contains information about setting up your PSR-275/273 for playing. Make sure to
read this section carefully before using the instrument.
Power Requirements
Although the PSR-275/273 will run either from an optional AC adaptor or batteries, Yamaha recommends use of an AC adaptor whenever possible. An AC adaptor is more environmentally friendly than batteries and does not deplete resources.
■ Using an AC Power Adaptor • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
q Make sure that the [STANDBY/ON] switch of the PSR-275/273 is set to
STANDBY.
w Connect the AC adaptor (PA-3C, PA-3B, or other adaptor specifically recommended by Yamaha) to the DC IN 10-12V jack.
e Plug the AC adaptor into an AC outlet.
w
e
• Use ONLY a Yamaha PA-3C or
PA-3B AC Power Adaptor (or
other adaptor specifically recommended by Yamaha) to
power your instrument from
the AC mains. The use of other
adaptors may result in irreparable damage to both the adaptor and the PSR-275/273.
• Unplug the AC Power Adaptor
when not using the PSR-275/
273, or during electrical
storms.
■ Using Batteries • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
For battery operation the PSR-275/273 requires six 1.5V “D” size, R20P (LR20)
or equivalent batteries. When the batteries need to be replaced, the volume may
be reduced, the sound may be distorted, and other problems may occur. When this
happens, turn the power off and replace the batteries, as described below
q Open the battery compartment cover located on the instrument’s bottom panel.
w Insert the six new batteries, being careful to follow the polarity markings next
to the compartment cover.
e Replace the compartment cover, making sure that it locks firmly in place.
• When the batteries run down,
replace them with a complete
set of six new batteries.
NEVER mix old and new batteries.
• Do not use different kinds of
batteries (e.g. alkaline and
manganese) at the same time.
• If the instrument is not to be in
use for a long time, remove the
batteries from it, in order to
prevent possible fluid leakage
from the battery.
• The effective life of rechargeable batteries may shorter than
that of conventional batteries.
10
Setting Up
Turning On the Power
With the AC power adaptor connected or
with batteries installed, simply press the
power switch until it locks in the ON position. When the instrument is not in use, be
sure to turn the power off. (Press the switch
again so that it pops up.)
• Even when the switch is in the “STANDBY” position,
electricity is still flowing to the instrument at the minimum level. When you are not using the PSR-275/273 for
a long time, make sure you unplug the AC power adaptor from the wall AC outlet, and/or remove the batteries
from the instrument.
Accessory Jacks
■ Using Headphones• • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
For private practicing and playing without disturbing others, connect a set of stereo headphones to the rear panel PHONES/OUTPUT
jack. Sound from the built-in speaker system is
automatically cut off when you insert a headphone plug into this jack.
■ Connecting a Keyboard Amplifier or Stereo System • • • • • • •
Though the PSR-275/273 is equipped with a
built-in speaker system, you can also play it
through an external amplifier/speaker system.
First, make sure the PSR-275/273 and any
external devices are turned off, then connect
one end of a stereo audio cable to the LINE IN
or AUX IN jack(s) of the other device and the
other end to the rear panel PHONES/OUTPUT
jack on the PSR-275/273.
Stereo System
• To prevent damage to the
speakers, set the volume of the
external devices at the minimum setting before connecting them. Failure to observe
these cautions may result in
electric shock or equipment
damage. Also, be sure to set
the volumes of all devices at
their minimum levels and gradually raise the volume controls
while playing the instrument to
set the desired listening level.
■ Using a Footswitch • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
This feature lets you use an optional footswitch
(Yamaha FC4 or FC5) to sustain the sound of
the voices. The footswitch functions the same
way as a damper pedal on an acoustic piano —
press and hold down the footswitch as you play
the keyboard to sustain the sound.
• Make sure that the footswitch
plug is properly connected to the
SUSTAIN jack before turning on
the power.
■ Using the MIDI Terminals • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
• Do not press the footswitch while
turning the power on. Doing this
changes the recognized polarity
of the footswitch, resulting in
reversed footswitch operation.
The PSR-275/273 also features MIDI terminals, allowing you to interface the PSR-275/
273 with other MIDI instruments and devices.

This results in limited touch response, and produces a relatively narrow
dynamic range, no matter how lightly or strongly you play the keys.
This lets you play over a normal dynamic range (soft to loud).
This is designed for playing very soft passages, giving you slightly more
detailed control in the soft volume range.
When Touch is turned off, a constant volume (corresponding to a velocity value of
80) is produced.

Transpose and Tuning
You can also adjust the tuning and change the transposition (key) of the entire
PSR-275/273 sound with the Transpose and Tuning functions.
■ Transpose • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
Transpose determines the key of both the main voice and the bass/chord accompaniment. It also determines the pitch of the songs. This allows you to easily match
the pitch of the PSR-275/273 to other instruments or singers, or play in a different
key without changing your fingering. The Transpose settings can be adjusted over
a range of ± 12 semitones (± 1 octave).
• The Transpose function has no
effect on the Drum Kits voices
(#109 - #120).
Transpose can be set in the Function mode (page 60).
■ Tuning • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
Tuning determines the fine pitch setting of both the main voice and the bass/chord
accompaniment. It also determines the pitch of the songs. This allows you to
accurately match the tuning with that of other instruments. The Tuning settings
can be adjusted over a range of ± 100 (approx. ± 1 semitone).
Tuning can be set in the Function mode (page 60).

Effects
The PSR-275/273 is equipped with a wide variety of effects that can be used to enhance the
sound of the voices. The PSR-275/273 has three separate effect systems — Harmony, Reverb
and Chorus — and each has many different effect types to choose from.
Harmony
The Harmony section features a variety of performance effects that enhance the
melodies you play when using the accompaniment styles of the PSR-275/273. A
total of twenty-six Harmony types are available. (See page 31.)
Tremolo, Trill and Echo effects can be used even if accompaniment is off.
There are five different Harmony Types that automatically create harmony parts
(for notes played in the upper area of the keyboard) to match the accompaniment
chords.
• For the first five Harmony Types
(Duet, Trio, Block, Country, and
Octave), chords must be played
in the Accompaniment area of
the keyboard.
The Harmony voice(s) change in
pitch to best match the chords
you play.
• The speed of the Trill, Tremolo,
and Echo effects depends on the
Tempo setting (page 31).
Turn on/off the Harmony effect.
Press the [HARMONY] button.
Indicates Harmony
effect is on.

Types 6 - 26 are rhythm-based effects and add embellishments or
delayed repeats in time with the auto accompaniment. These types
sound whether the auto accompaniment is on or not; however, the
actual speed of the effect depends on the Tempo setting (page 38).
The individual note values in each type let you synchronize the effect precisely to the rhythm. Triplet settings are also available: 1/6
= quarter-note triplets, 1/12 = eighth-note triplets, 1/24 = sixteenthnote triplets.

Selecting and Playing Styles
The PSR-275/273 provides dynamic rhythm/accompaniment patterns (styles) — as well as
voice settings appropriate for each style — for various popular musical categories.
A total of 100 different styles are available, in several different categories. Each style is made up of separate
“sections” — Intro, Main A and B, and Ending — letting you call up different accompaniment sections as you
perform.
The auto accompaniment features that are built into the rhythms add the excitement of instrumental backing to
your performance, letting you control the accompaniment by the chords you play. Auto accompaniment effectively splits the keyboard into two areas: The upper is used for playing a melody line, and the lower (set by
default to keys F#2 and lower) is for the auto accompaniment function.
The PSR-275/273 also features the convenient Dictionary function (page 42). Dictionary provides you with a
built-in “chord encyclopedia” that teaches you how to play any chord you specify by showing you the appropriate notes in the display.

Using Auto Accompaniment — Multi Fingering
When it is set to on (page 34), the auto accompaniment function automatically
generates bass and chord accompaniment for you to play along with, by using
Multi Fingering operation. You can change the chords of the accompaniment by
playing keys in the auto accompaniment area of the keyboard using either the
“Single Finger” or “Fingered” method. With Single Finger you can simply play a
one-, two- or three-finger chord indication (see Single Finger Chords below). The
Fingered technique is that of conventionally playing all the notes of the chord.
Whichever method you use, the PSR-275/273 “understands” what chord you indicate and then automatically generates the accompaniment.
■ Single Finger Chords • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
Chords that can be produced in Single Finger operation are major, minor, seventh
and minor seventh. The illustration shows how to produce the four chord types.
(The key of C is used here as an example; other keys follow the same rules. For
example, Bb7 is played as Bb and A.)

The simple answer: Three or more notes played simultaneously is a chord. (Two notes played
together is an “interval” — an interval being the distance between two different notes. This is also
referred to as a “harmony.”) Depending on the intervals between the three or more notes, a chord
can sound beautiful or muddy and dissonant.
The organization of notes in the example at left — a triad chord — produces a pleasant, harmonious sound. Triads are made up of three notes
and are the most basic and common chords in most music.
In this triad, the lowest note is the “root.” The root is the most important note in the chord, because
it anchors the sound harmonically by determining its “key” and forms the basis for how we hear the
other notes of the chord.
The second note of this chord is four semitones higher than the first, and the third is three semitones
higher than the second. Keeping our root note fixed and changing these notes by a semitone up or
down (sharp or flat), we can create four different chords.

Keep in mind that we can also change the “voicing” of a chord — for example, change the order of
the notes (called “inversions”), or play the same notes in different octaves — without changing the
basic nature of the chord itself.

Selecting and Playing Styles
Beautiful sounding harmonies can be built in this manner. The use of intervals and chords is one of
the most important elements in music. A wide variety of emotions and feelings can be created
depending on the types of chords used and the order in which they are arranged.

Knowing how to read and write chord names is an easy yet invaluable skill. Chords are often written in a kind of shorthand that makes them instantly recognizable (and gives you the freedom to
play them with the voicing or inversion that you prefer). Once you understand the basic principles
of harmony and chords, it’s very simple to use this shorthand to write out the chords of a song.
First, write the root note of the chord in an uppercase letter. If you need to specify sharp or flat,
indicate that to the right of the root. The chord type should be indicated to the right as well. Examples for the key of C are shown below.
Major chord
Minor chord
Augmented chord
Diminished chord

Cm
Caug
Cdim
For simple major chords, the type is omitted.
One important point: Chords are made up of notes “stacked” on top of each other, and the stacked
notes are indicated in the chord name of the chord type as a number — the number being the distance of the note from the root. (See the keyboard diagram below.) For example, the minor 6th
chord includes the 6th note of the scale, the major 7th chord has the 7th note of the scale, etc.

Song Lesson
The Lesson feature provides an exceptionally fun and easy-to-use way to learn how to read
music and play the keyboard. Lesson lets you practice the left- and right-hand parts of each
song independently, step by step, until you’ve mastered them and are ready to practice with
both hands together. These practices are divided into four Lesson steps, as described below.
Lessons 1 - 3 apply to each hand; press the appropriate button, [L] (left) or [R] (right) to select
the desired part for practice.
■ Lesson 1 — Timing
This lesson step lets you practice just the timing of the notes — any note
can be used, as long as you play in rhythm.
■ Lesson 2 — Waiting
In this lesson step, the PSR-275/273 waits for you to play the correct notes
before continuing playback of the song.
■ Lesson 3 — Minus One
This lesson step plays back the song with one part muted, letting you play
and master the missing part yourself — in rhythm and at the proper tempo.
■ Lesson 4 — Both Hands
Lesson 4 is a “Minus One” practice essentially the same as Lesson 3,
except that both the left- and right-hand parts are muted — letting you play
and master both hands at the same time.

MIDI Functions
The PSR-275/273 is MIDI-compatible, featuring MIDI IN and MIDI OUT terminals and providing a
variety of MIDI-related controls. By using the MIDI functions you can expand your musical
possibilities. This section explains what MIDI is, and what it can do, as well as how you can use
MIDI on your PSR-275/273.
What Is MIDI?
No doubt you have heard the terms “acoustic instrument” and “digital instrument.” In the world today, these are the two main categories of instruments. Let’s
consider an acoustic piano and a classical guitar as representative acoustic instruments. They are easy to understand. With the piano, you strike a key, and a hammer inside hits some strings and plays a note. With the guitar, you directly pluck a
string and the note sounds. But how does a digital instrument go about playing a
note?
Acoustic guitar note production
Digital instrument note production
L
Sampling

Tone Generator
(Electronic circuit)
Sampling
Note
R
Playing the keyboard
Pluck a string and the body
resonates the sound.
Based on playing information from the keyboard, a
sampling note stored in the tone generator is played
through the speakers.
As shown in the illustration above, in an electronic instrument the sampling note
(previously recorded note) stored in the tone generator section (electronic circuit)
is played based on information received from the keyboard. So then what is the
information from the keyboard that becomes the basis for note production?
For example, let’s say you play a “C” quarter note using the grand piano sound on
the PSR-275/273 keyboard. Unlike an acoustic instrument that puts out a resonated note, the electronic instrument puts out information from the keyboard such
as “with what voice,” “with which key,” “about how strong,” “when was it
pressed,” and “when was it released.” Then each piece of information is changed
into a number value and sent to the tone generator. Using these numbers as a
basis, the tone generator plays the stored sampling note.
● Example of Keyboard Information
Voice number (with what voice)
Note number (with which key)
Note on (when was it pressed) and
note off (when was it released)
Velocity (about how strong)
01 (grand piano)
60 (C3)
Timing expressed numerically (quarter note)
120 (strong)
GM System Level 1
54
“GM System Level 1” is an addition to the MIDI standard which ensures that any GM-compatible
music data can be accurately played by any GM-compatible tone generator, regardless of manufacturer. The GM mark is affixed to all software and hardware products that support GM System Level
1. The PSR-275/273 supports GM System Level 1.
MIDI Functions
MIDI is an acronym that stands for Musical Instrument Digital Interface, which
allows electronic musical instruments to communicate with each other, by sending and receiving compatible Note, Control Change, Program Change and various
other types of MIDI data, or messages.
The PSR-275/273 can control a MIDI device by transmitting note related data and
various types of controller data. The PSR-275/273 can be controlled by the
incoming MIDI messages which automatically determine tone generator mode,
select MIDI channels, voices and effects, change parameter values and of course
play the voices specified for the various parts.
MIDI messages can be divided into two groups: Channel messages and System
messages. Below is an explanation of the various types of MIDI messages which
the PSR-275/273 can receive/transmit.
● Channel Messages
The PSR-275/273 is an electronic instrument that can handle 16 channels. This is
usually expressed as “it can play 16 instruments at the same time.” Channel messages transmit information such as Note ON/OFF, Program Change, for each of
the 16 channels.
Message Name
Note ON/OFF
Program Change
Control Change
PSR-275/273 Operation/Panel Setting
Messages which are generated when the keyboard is played. Each
message includes a specific note number which corresponds to the
key which is pressed, plus a velocity value based on how hard the
key is stuck.
Voice number (along with corresponding bank select MSB/LSB settings, if necessary).
Messages that are used to change some aspect of the sound (volume, etc.).
● System Messages
This is data that is used in common by the entire MIDI system. System messages
include messages like Exclusive Messages that transmit data unique to each
instrument manufacturer and Realtime Messages that control the MIDI device.

The messages transmitted/received by the PSR-275/273 are shown in the MIDI
Implementation Chart on page 68.
MIDI Terminals
In order to exchange MIDI data between multiple
devices, each device must be connected by a cable.
The MIDI terminals of the PSR-275/273 are located on
the rear panel.
MIDI IN
MIDI OUT
Receives MIDI data from another MIDI device.
Transmits the PSR-275/273’s keyboard information as MIDI
data to another MIDI device.
• Special MIDI cables (sold separately) must be used for connecting to MIDI devices. They can be
bought at music stores, etc.
• Never use MIDI cables longer
than about 15 meters. Cables
longer than this can pick up noise
which can cause data errors.

MIDI Functions
Local Control
This function lets you enable or disable keyboard control over the PSR-275/273’s
voices in the Function mode (page 60). This would come in handy, for example,
when recording notes to MIDI sequencer. If you are using the sequencer to play
back the voices of the PSR-275/273, you would want to set this to “off” — in
order to avoid getting “double” notes, both from the keyboard and from the
sequencer. Normally, when playing the PSR-275/273 by itself, this should be set
to “on.”
• No sound is output from the
PSR-275/273 when Local ON/
OFF is set to OFF.
Using Initial Setup Send with a Sequencer
The most common use for the Initial Setup Send function is in recording a song
on a sequencer that is intended for playback with the PSR-275/273. Essentially,
this takes a “snapshot” of the PSR-275/273 settings and sends that data to the
sequencer. By recording this “snapshot” at the start of the song (before any actual
performance data), you can instantly restore the necessary settings on the PSR275/273 in the Function mode (page 60). Provided there is a pause in the song,
you could also do this in the middle of a song — for example, completely changing the PSR-275/273 settings for the next section of the song.
• When the Initial Setup Send
operation is completed, the PSR275/273 automatically returns to
the previous panel condition.
External Clock
This determines whether the style and song playback functions are controlled by
the PortaTone’s internal clock (off) or by MIDI clock data from an external
sequencer or computer (on).
This should be set to on when you want to have style or song playback follow the
external device (such as a rhythm machine or a sequencer). The default setting is
off.
• If External Clock is set to ON,
style or song playback will not
start unless external clock are
received.
These settings can be made in the Function mode (page 60).
MIDI LSB Receive Cancel
Determines whether the LSB data of Bank Select is received or
not. Press and hold the lowest key and turn on the power to change
the setting (LSB is ignored).
To restore MIDI LSB Receive Cancel to normal (LSB is recognized), turn on the power again normally.

Voice List
■ Maximum Polyphony • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
The PSR-275/273 has 32-note maximum polyphony. This means that it can
play a maximum of up to 32 notes at once, regardless of what functions are
used. Auto Accompaniment uses a number of the available notes, so when
Auto Accompaniment is used the total number of available notes for playing on the keyboard is correspondingly reduced. The same applies to the
Split Voice and Song functions.
• The Voice List includes MIDI program
change numbers for each voice. Use these
program change numbers when playing
the PSR-275/273 via MIDI from an external device.
• Some voices may sound continuously or
have a long decay after the notes have
been released while the sustain pedal
(footswitch) is held.

Drum Kit List
• “
” indicates that the drum sound is the same as “Standard Kit 1”.
• Each percussion voice uses one note.
• The MIDI Note # and Note are actually one octave lower than keyboard
Note # and Note. For example, in “109: Standard Kit 1”, the “Seq Click H”
(Note# 36/Note C1) corresponds to (Note# 24/Note C0).
• Key Off: Keys marked “O” stop sounding the instant they are released.
• Voices with the same Alternate Note Number (*1 – 4) cannot be played
simultaneously. (They are designed to be played alternately with each
other.)

MIDI Implementation Chart
NOTE:
*1 By default (factory settings) the PSR-275/273 ordinarily functions as a 16channel multi-timbral tone generator, and incoming data does not affect
the panel voices or panel settings. However, the MIDI messages listed
below do affect the panel voices, auto accompaniment, and songs.
• MIDI Master Tuning
• System exclusive messages for changing the Reverb Type and Chorus Type.
*2 Messages for these control change numbers cannot be transmitted from
the PSR-275/273 itself. However, they may be transmitted when playing
the accompaniment, song or using the Harmony effect.
*3 Exclusive
<GM System ON> F0H, 7EH, 7FH, 09H, 01H, F7H
• This message automatically restores all default settings for the instrument, with the exception of MIDI Master Tuning.
<MIDI Master Volume> F0H, 7FH, 7FH, 04H, 01H, ll, mm, F7H
• This message allows the volume of all channels to be changed simultaneously (Universal System Exclusive).
• The values of “mm” is used for MIDI Master Tuning. (Values for “ll” are
ignored.)
<Reverb Type> F0H, 43H, 1nH, 4CH, 02H, 01H, 00H, mmH, llH, F7H
• mm : Reverb Type MSB
• ll : Reverb Type LSB
Refer to the Effect Map (page 69) for details.
<Chorus Type> F0H, 43H, 1nH, 4CH, 02H, 01H, 20H, mmH, llH, F7H
• mm : Chorus Type MSB
• ll : Chorus Type LSB
Refer to the Effect Map (page 69) for details.
*4 When the accompaniment is started, an FAH message is transmitted.
When accompaniment is stopped, an FCH message is transmitted.When
the clock is set to External, both FAH (accompaniment start) and FCH
(accompaniment stop) are recognized.
*5 Local ON/OFF
<Local ON> Bn, 7A, 7F
<Local OFF> Bn, 7A, 00
Value for “n” is ignored.
<MIDI Master Tuning> F0H, 43H, 1nH, 27H, 30H, 00H, 00H, mm, ll, cc,
F7H
• This message simultaneously changes the tuning value of all channels.
• The values of “mm” and “ll” are used for MIDI Master Tuning.
• The default value of “mm” and “ll” are 08H and 00H, respectively. Any
values can be used for “n” and “cc.”
■ Effect map
* If the received value does not contain an effect type in the TYPE LSB, the LSB will be directed to TYPE 0.
* The numbers in parentheses in front of the Effect Type names correspond to the number indicated in the display.
* By using an external sequencer, which is capable of editing and transmitting the system exclusive messages and
parameter changes, you can select the Reverb and Chorus effect types which are not accessible from the PSR275/273 panel itself. When one of the effects is selected by the external sequencer, “ - ” will be shown on the
display.

Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
When the PSR-275/273 is turned on or off, a popping sound is temporarily produced.
This is normal and indicates that the PSR-275/273 is receiving electrical power.
When using a mobile phone, noise is produced.
Using a mobile phone in close proximity to the PSR-275/273 may produce interference. To prevent this, turn off the mobile phone or use
it further away from the PSR-275/273.
There is no sound even when the keyboard is
played or when a song is being played back.
Check that nothing is connected to the PHONES/OUTPUT jack on
the rear panel. When a set of headphones is plugged into this jack,
no sound is output.
Check the Local Control on/off or PC Mode on/off. (See page 57, 58.)
70
Playing keys in the right hand area of the keyboard
does not produce any sound.
When using the Dictionary function (page 42), the keys in the right
hand area are used only for entering the chord root and type.
The sound of the voices or rhythms seems unusual or strange.
The battery power is too low. Replace the batteries. (See page 10.)
The auto accompaniment doesn’t turn on, even
when pressing the [ACMP ON/OFF] button.
Make sure the Style mode is active before using the auto accompaniment. Press the [STYLE] button to enable style operations.
The style or song does not play back even when
pressing the [START/STOP] button.
Check the External Clock on/off. (See page 57.)
The style or song does not sound properly.
Make sure that the Style Volume or Song Volume (page 39) is set to
an appropriate level.
When playing back one of the Pianist styles (#93 #100), the rhythm cannot be heard.
This is normal. The Pianist styles have no drums or bass — only piano accompaniment. The accompaniment of the style can only be
heard when accompaniment is set to ON and keys are played in the
auto accompaniment area of the keyboard.
Not all of the voices seem to sound, or the sound
seems to be cut off.
The PSR-275/273 is polyphonic up to a maximum of 32 notes. If the
Dual voice or Split voice is being used and a style or song is playing
back at the same time, some notes/sounds may be omitted (or “stolen”) from the accompaniment or song.
A strange “flanging” or “doubling” sound occurs
when using the PSR-275/273 with a sequencer.
(This may also sound like a “dual” layered sound
of two voices, even when Dual is turned off.)
When using the style with a sequencer, set MIDI Echo (or the relevant
control) to “off.” (Refer to the owner’s manual of your particular device and/or software for details.)
The footswitch (for sustain) seems to produce the
opposite effect. For example, pressing the footswitch cuts off the sound and releasing it sustains
the sounds.
The polarity of the footswitch is reversed. Make sure that the footswitch plug is properly connected to the SUSTAIN jack before turning
on the power.
The sound of the voice changes from note to note.
The AWM tone generation method uses multiple recordings (samples) of an instrument across the range of the keyboard; thus, the actual sound of the voice may be slightly different from note to note.
