Connections
Phones/Output Terminal
Before connecting phones or other external
equipment, be sure to first turn down the volume
settings of the keyboard and the connected
equipment. You can then adjust volume to the
desired level after connections are complete.

PHONES/OUTPUT Terminal
Audio connection
Stereo mini plug
* Be sure to use a connecting cord that has a stereo
mini plug on the end you connect to the
keyboard, and a connector that provides dual
channel (left and right) input to the amplifier to
which you are connecting. The wrong type of
connector at either end can cause one of the stereo
channels to be lost.
When connecting to a musical instrument
amplifier, set the volume of the keyboard to a
relatively low level and make output volume
adjustments using the amplifier’s controls.

Audio Equipment (Figure 2)
Connect the keyboard to an audio equipment using
a commercially available connecting cord with a
mini plug on one end and two PIN plugs on the
other end. Note that the mini plug you connect to
the keyboard must be a stereo plug, otherwise you
will be able to output only one of stereo channels.
In this configuration, you normally set the input

See the “Fingered Chord Chart” on page A-4 for
details on playing chords with other roots.
IMPORTANT!
• The accompaniment keyboard can be used
for playing chords only. No sound will be
produced if you try playing single melody
notes on the accompaniment keyboard.
*1: Inverted fingerings cannot be used. The lowest
note is the root.
*2: The same chord can be played without pressing
the 5th G.
*3: The same chord can be played without pressing
the 3rd E.
*4: The first inversion is not supported, but the
second and third inversions are available.
NOTE
• Except for the chords specified in note *1
above, inverted fingerings (i.e. playing E-GC or G-C-E instead of C-E-G) will produce the
same chords as the standard fingering.
• Except for the exception specified in note*2
and note*3 above, all of the keys that make
up a chord must be pressed. Failure to press
even a single key will not play the desired
FINGERED chord.

Step 2: In this step, you learn correct keyboard
keys you need to press. The on-screen
graphic keyboard and staff display show
the notes and the keys you need to press
to play them. You can play at your own
pace, even if it is very slow. Both the onscreen indicators and the accompaniment
wait until you play the correct note.

tune number.
Press the START/STOP button.
• This starts playback of the Song Bank tune.
When playback reached the point where
the first melody note should be played, the
key you should press is indicated on the
on-screen keyboard, and the note you
should play is indicated on the on-screen
staff. At this time, playback pauses and
accompaniment stands by, waiting for you
to play the first note. Press the indicated
key to start your practice session.
• Playback of the tune resumes as soon as
you press the indicated keyboard key.
When playback reaches the next melody
note, accompaniment pauses again, and the
on-screen keyboard and staff indicate the
note you should play. Even if you make a
mistake and press the wrong key, the
keyboard plays the correct note.
4
Using Steps 2 and 3
In step 1 of the above procedure, use the 3-STEP
LESSON button cycle through the steps until the
Step 2 or Step 3 indicator is displayed.
• In Step 2, you learn correct keyboard keys you
need to press. The on-screen music staff and
graphic keyboard show you the notes to play and
the keys to press. You can play at your own pace,
even if it is very slow. Both the on-screen
indicators and the accompaniment wait until you
play the correct note. Unlike Step 1,
accompaniment does not restart unless you press
the correct keyboard key. Playback resumes when
you press the correct key, and continues up the
next melody note, where accompaniment pauses
again, and the on-screen keyboard and staff
indicate the note you should play.
• In Step 3, you play along at regular speed. The
on-screen guide indicators and accompaniment
change at normal speed, without waiting for you
to play the correct note.
To stop your practice session, press the
START/STOP or the 3-STEP LESSON button.
• Pressing the 3-STEP LESSON button to
stop the practice session also selects the
next step (Step 2 in this example). At this
point you could start a Step 2 practice
session, if you want.

Care of your keyboard
Avoid heat, humidity or direct sunlight.
Do not overexpose the instrument to direct sunlight, or place it near an air conditioner, or in any extremely
hot place.
Do not use near a TV or radio.
This instrument can cause video or audio interference with TV and radio reception. If this happens, move the
instrument away from the TV or radio.
Do not use lacquer, thinner or similar chemicals for cleaning.
Clean the keyboard with a soft cloth dampened in a weak solution of water and a neutral detergent. Soak the
cloth in the solution and squeeze until it is almost dry.
Avoid use in areas subjected to temperature extremes.
Extreme heat can cause figures on the LCD screen to become dim and difficult to read. This condition should
correct itself when the keyboard is brought back to normal temperature.
NOTE
• You may notice lines in the finish of the case of this keyboard. These lines are a result of the molding
process used to shape the plastic of the case. They are not cracks or breaks in the plastic, and are no
cause for concern.
