The navigate channels can be used to display only the notes
of a particular channel (part) as on-screen guide information
from among the note information of a tune sent from the
computer.
■ Specifying the Navigate Channels
From among the 16 available channels (numbered 1 to 16),
you can specify any two neighboring channels (such as 05
and 06) as navigate channels. The smaller numbered channel
is the navigate (L) channel, while the larger numbered
channel is the navigate (R) channel. Specifying the navigate
(R) channel will automatically configure the navigate (L)
channel as well.

Included Accessories
I can’t find something that should be here.
Carefully check inside all of the packing materials.
Power Requirements
Power will not turned on.
• Check the AC adaptor or make sure that the batteries are facing
correctly (page E-5).
• Replace the batteries with new ones or switch over to AC adaptor
power (page E-5).
The Digital Keyboard outputs a loud sound and then
suddenly powers down.
Replace the batteries with new ones or switch over to AC adaptor
power (page E-5).
The Digital Keyboard suddenly powers down after a
few minutes.
This happens when Auto Power Off (page E-6) is triggered.
Display
The display keeps going out or are flashing.
Replace the batteries with new ones or switch over to AC adaptor
power (page E-5).
On-screen keyboard keys or notes remain on the
display.
A Step Up Lesson is in progress and the Digital Keyboard is waiting
for you to play the next note in the song. To stop this from happening,
cancel the lesson (page E-21).
Screen contents are visible only from straight ahead. This is dues to production limitations. It does not indicate malfunction.
Sound
Nothing happens when I press any keyboard key.
• Adjust the main volume setting (page E-6).
• Check if something is plugged into the PHONES/OUTPUT jack (dm)
on the back of the Digital Keyboard.
• Turn power off and then back on to initialize all keyboard settings
(page E-6).
Nothing happens or notes do not play normally when
I play notes on the left side of the keyboard.
Press bl to disable chord input in the accompaniment keyboard area
(page E-28).
Nothing happens when I start an Auto
Accompaniment.
• With rhythms 140, and 142 to 150, nothing will sound until you play
a chord on the keyboard. Try playing a chord (page E-28).
• Check and adjust the accompaniment volume setting (page E-31).
• Turn power off and then back on to initialize all keyboard settings
(page E-6).
Nothing happens when I start playback of a built-in
song.
• It takes a little time after you press the button until the song starts to
play. Wait for a moment for the song to start.
• Check and adjust the song volume (page E-17).
• Turn power off and then back on to initialize all keyboard settings
(page E-6).

Symptom
Action
Some notes are cut off while they are playing.
Notes are cut off whenever the number of notes being sounded
exceeds the maximum polyphony value of 48 (24 for some tones).
This does not indicate malfunction. See “Maximum Polyphony” in the
“Tone List” in the separate “Appendix”.
The volume or tone setting I made has changed.
• Adjust the main volume setting (page E-6).
• Turn power off and then back on to initialize all keyboard settings
(page E-6).
• Replace the batteries with new ones or switch over to AC adaptor
power (page E-5).
This is due to system limitations. It does not indicate malfunction.
In certain keyboard ranges, the volume and tone
quality sound are slightly different from those in other
keyboard ranges.
With some tones, octaves do not change at the far
ends of the keyboard.
This is due to system limitations. It does not indicate malfunction.
The pitch of the notes does not match other
accompanying instruments or sounds strange when
played long with other instruments.
• Check and adjust the transpose (page E-11) and tuning settings
(page E-11).
• Turn power off and then back on to initialize all keyboard settings
(page E-6).
The reverb of notes seems to change suddenly.
• Check and adjust the reverb setting (page E-10).
• Turn power off and then back on to initialize all keyboard settings
(page E-6).
Sounds I sampled were deleted.
Sampled data is deleted whenever keyboard power is turned off (page
E-13).
Operation
When I perform a skip forward or skip back
operation, the skip operation moves multiple song
measures instead of only a single measure.
While song playback is stopped or a Step Up Lesson is in progress,
skip forward and skip back operations are performed in phrase units
(page E-16).
Computer Connection
I can’t exchange data between the Digital Keyboard
and a computer.
• Check to make sure that the USB cable is connected to the
keyboard and computer, and that the device is selected correctly
with your computer’s music software settings (page E-32).
• Turn off the keyboard and then exit the music software on your
computer. Next, turn the keyboard back on and then restart the
music software on your computer.
