Setting Up
 Installing the batteries
Power Requirements
Although the instrument will run either from an 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.
1 Make sure that the power of the instrument is off.
2 Open the battery compartment cover located on
the instrument’s bottom panel.
Using an AC adaptor
1 Make sure that the power of the instrument is off
(the backlight display is off).
WARNING
• Use the specified adaptor (page 42) only. Using the
wrong adaptor can result in damage to the instrument
or overheating.
• See “For the AC adaptor with a Removable Plug” (page
46).
2 Connect the AC adaptor to the DC IN jack (power
supply jack).
3 Plug the AC adaptor into an AC outlet.
3 Insert the six new batteries, being careful to follow
the polarity markings on the inside of the compartment.
CAUTION
• When setting up the product, make sure that the AC
outlet you are using is easily accessible. If some trouble or malfunction occurs, immediately turn off the
power switch and disconnect the plug from the outlet.

Using Batteries
This instrument requires six “AA” size, Alkaline (LR6)/
Manganese (R6) batteries, or rechargeable nickelmetal hydride batteries (rechargeable Ni-MH batteries). The Alkaline batteries or rechargeable Ni-MH
batteries are recommended for this instrument, since
other types may result in poorer battery performance.

PSR-E253/YPT-255 Owner’s Manual
NOTICE
• Connecting or disconnecting the AC adaptor with batteries
installed may turn the power off, resulting in loss of data
being recorded or transferred at the time.
• Change the setting of the instrument according to the kind
of battery you are using (Battery Type; page 42).
When battery power becomes too low for proper
operation, the volume may be reduced, the sound
may be distorted, and other problems may occur.
When this happens, make sure to replace all batteries with new ones or already-recharged ones.
NOTE
• This instrument cannot charge the batteries. Use only the
specified charger device when charging.
• Power will be automatically drawn from the AC adaptor if an
AC adaptor is connected while batteries are installed in the
instrument.
Setting Up
 Setting the battery type
After installing new batteries and turning the power
on, make sure to set the Battery Type appropriately
(rechargeable or not) via Function number 023 (page
31).
NOTICE
• When the instrument’s sound is output to an external
device, first turn on the power to the instrument, then to
the external device. Reverse this order when you turn the
power off.
NOTICE
• Failure to set the Battery Type may shorten the amount of
the battery life. Make sure to set the Battery Type correctly.
Connecting a Footswitch to the
[SUSTAIN] jack
Using the music rest
Insert the music rest
into the slots as shown.

Hearing and Experiencing the Sound of the
Chords (Chord Study)
You can hear and experience the sound of the chords used in a typical performance by
playing back Song numbers 091 to 102 (in the “Chord Study” category). Song numbers
091 to 097 are very simple songs consisting of a single chord (C, Dm, Em, F, G, Am,
Bm; respectively) played in various positions, letting you listen to and master the
chords one by one. On the other hand, Song numbers 098 to 102 consist of several
chords strung together in a pattern, for experiencing and understanding basic chord
progressions. Hear and experience the sound of simple chords and progressions by
playing back these Songs, and play the keyboard while following along with the music
notation and key/chord indications shown in the display.

Troubleshooting
Appendix
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
When the instrument is turned on or off, a popping
sound is temporarily produced.
This is normal and indicates that the instrument is receiving electrical power.
When using a mobile phone, noise is produced.
Using a mobile phone in close proximity to the instrument may produce interference. To prevent this, turn off the mobile phone or use it further away from
the instrument.
Noise is heard from the instrument’s speakers or headphones when using the instrument with the application
on iPhone/iPad/iPod touch.
When you use the instrument along with the application on your iPhone/iPad/
iPod touch, we recommend that you set “Airplane Mode” to “ON” on your
iPhone/iPad/iPod touch in order to avoid noise caused by communication.
There is no sound even when the keyboard is played or
when a song or style 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.
Playing keys in the right hand area of the keyboard does
not produce any sound.
When using the Dictionary function (page 21), the keys in the right hand area
are used only for entering the chord root and type.
Not all of the voices seem to sound, or the sound seems
to be cut off.
The instrument is polyphonic up to a maximum of 32 notes. If a style or Song
is playing back at the same time, some notes/sounds may be omitted (or “stolen”) from the accompaniment or Song.
The ACMP ON indicator does not appear when the
[ACMP ON/OFF] button is pressed.
• Always press the [STYLE] button first when you are going to use any Stylerelated function.
• The ACMP ON indicator does not appear when the Duo mode is on.
The Style does not sound properly.
Make sure that the Style Volume (page 30 Function 001) is set to an appropriate level.
Is the Split Point set to an appropriate key for the chords you are playing? Set
the Split Point to an appropriate key (page 30 Function 005).
Is the “ACMP ON” indicator showing in the display? If it is not showing, press
the [ACMP ON/OFF] button so that it does show.
The Style does not sound as you play a chord.
• The auto accompaniment will sometimes not change when related chords
are played in sequence (e.g., some minor chords followed by the minor seventh).
• Two-note fingerings will produce a chord based on the previously played
chord.
• Playing two same root keys in the adjacent octaves produces accompaniment based only on the root.

the sound and releasing it sustains the sounds.
The sound of the voice changes from note to note.
This is normal. 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.

The rhythm stops unexpectedly or will not play.
The recorded data of the song, etc. does not play correctly.
• The LCD display suddenly goes dark, and all panel

Power suddenly and unexpectedly turns off.
This is normal and the Auto Power Off function may have been activated
(page 14). If you need to disable the Auto Power Off function, select “Off” in
the Function settings (Function 022; page 31).
When the instrument is turned on, power is turned off
suddenly and unexpectedly.
This is normal. If an AC adaptor other than the one specified is used, power
may be turned off suddenly and unexpectedly.
PSR-E253/YPT-255 Owner’s Manual

Voice List
Maximum Polyphony
The instrument 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. If
the maximum polyphony is exceeded, earlier played notes will be cut off and the most
recent notes have priority (last note priority).
NOTE
• Some voices may sound continuously or
have a long decay after the notes have
been released while the sustain pedal
(footswitch) is held.

(NP, NPV, PSRE, EZ, DGX230, DGX530, YPG AND YPT SERIES)
Thank you for selecting a Yamaha product. Yamaha products are designed and manufactured to provide a high level of defect-free
performance. Yamaha Corporation of America (“Yamaha”) is proud of the experience and craftsmanship that goes into each and every
Yamaha product. Yamaha sells its products through a network of reputable, specially authorized dealers and is pleased to offer you, the

Area. Yamaha suggests that you read the Limited Warranty thoroughly, and invites you to contact your authorized Yamaha dealer or

otherwise fails to conform with this warranty under normal use and service during the term of this warranty, without charge for labor or
materials. Repairs may be performed using new or refurbished parts that meet or exceed Yamaha specifications for new parts. If

removal charges and for any initial shipping charges if the product(s) must be shipped for warranty service. However, Yamaha will pay
the return shipping charges to any destination within the USA if the repairs are covered by the warranty. This warranty does not cover (a)
damage, deterioration or malfunction resulting from accident, negligence, misuse, abuse, improper installation or operation or failure to
follow instructions according to the Owner’s Manual for this product; any shipment of the product (claims must be presented to the

damages attributable to power line surge or related electrical abnormalities, lightning damage or acts of God; or (f) RFI/EMI (Interference/
noise) caused by improper grounding or the improper use of either certified or uncertified equipment, if applicable. Any evidence of
alteration, erasing or forgery of proof-of-purchase documents will cause this warranty to be void. This warranty covers only the Original
Owner and is not transferable.
In Order to Obtain Warranty Service: Warranty service will only be provided for defective products within the Warranted
Area. Contact your local authorized Yamaha dealer who will advise you of the procedures to be followed. If this is not successful, contact

the problem(s) requiring service, together with the original or a machine reproduction of the bill of sale or other dated, proof-of-purchase
document describing the product, as evidence of warranty coverage. Should any product submitted for warranty service be found
ineligible therefore, an estimate of repair cost will be furnished and the repair will be accomplished only if requested by you and upon
receipt of payment or acceptable arrangement for payment.

For the AC adaptor with a Removable Plug
Für den Netzadapter mit abziehbarem Stecker
Do not remove the plug from the AC adaptor. If
the plug is removed accidentally, slide the plug EN
into place without touching the metallic parts,
and then push the plug in completely until it clicks.
Ziehen Sie den Stecker nicht vom Netzadapter
DE
ab. Sollte der Stecker unabsichtlich entfernt
werden, schieben Sie den Stecker wieder
hinein, ohne die Metallteile zu berühren, und drücken
Sie ihn dann vollständig hinein, bis er einrastet.
WARNING
• Make sure to keep the plug attached to the AC adaptor.
Using the plug alone can cause electric shock or fire.
• Never touch the metallic section when attaching the plug.
To avoid electric shock, short circuit or damage, also be
careful that there is no dust between the AC adaptor and
plug.
Adaptateur secteur avec fiche amovible
Ne retirez pas la fiche de l'adaptateur secteur.
FR
Si la fiche est retirée accidentellement,
remettez-la en place sans toucher les parties
métalliques et faites-la glisser complètement jusqu'à
ce qu'un déclic se produise.
AVERTISSEMENT
• Assurez-vous que la fiche reste fixée à l'adaptateur secteur.
L'utilisation de la fiche seule risque de provoquer des
électrocutions ou des incendies.
• Ne touchez jamais la partie métallique lorsque vous
insérez la fiche. Afin d'éviter les risques d'électrocution,
courts-circuits ou incidents, veillez également à ce que
l'adaptateur secteur et la fiche ne soient pas encrassés par
la poussière.
Para el adaptador de alimentación con un
enchufe extraíble
No retire el enchufe del adaptador de
ES
alimentación. Si el enchufe se retira por
accidente, vuelva a colocarlo en su lugar sin
tocar los componentes metálicos y, a continuación,
enchúfelo del todo hasta que se oiga un clic.
ADVERTENCIA
• Asegúrese de mantener el enchufe conectado al
adaptador de CA. Si se utiliza el enchufe solo, se puede
producir una descarga eléctrica o un incendio.
• No toque nunca la sección metálica al conectar el
enchufe. Para evitar descargas eléctricas, cortocircuitos o
daños, fíjese en que no haya polvo entre el adaptador de
CA y el enchufe.
WARNUNG
• Stellen Sie sicher, dass der Stecker am Netzadapter
anschlossen bleibt. Die Verwendung des Steckers alleine
kann zu elektrischen Schlägen oder einem Brand führen.
• Berühren Sie bitte niemals den Metallabschnitt, wenn Sie
den Stecker befestigen. Um elektrische Schläge,
Kurzschlüsse oder Beschädigungen zu vermeiden, achten
Sie bitte darauf, dass sich zwischen Netzadapter und
Stecker kein Staub angesammelt hat.
Para o adaptador de alimentação com plugue
removível
Não remova o plugue do adaptador de
PT
alimentação. Se o plugue for removido
acidentalmente, encaixe-o sem tocar nas
partes metálicas e, em seguida, empurre-o para
dentro completamente até ouvir um clique.
ADVERTÊNCIAS
• Sempre mantenha o plugue conectado ao adaptador CA.
O uso do plugue sozinho pode causar choque elétrico ou
incêndio.
• Nunca toque na parte metálica ao conectar o plugue. Para
evitar choque elétrico, curto-circuito ou danos, também
tome cuidado para que não haja poeira entre o adaptador
CA e o plugue.
