Setting Up
Introduction
Be sure to do the following operations BEFORE turning on the power.
Power Requirements
Although the instrument 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
1 Make sure that the [ ] (Standby/On) switch of the
instrument is off (display is blank, except for notation staff).
WARNING
• Use the specified adaptor (page 42). The use of other
adaptors may result in irreparable damage to both the
adaptor and the instrument.
2 Connect the AC power adaptor to the power supply
jack.
3 Plug the AC adaptor into an AC outlet.
CAUTION
• Unplug the AC Power Adaptor when not using the
instrument, or during electrical storms.
2
AC power
adaptor
3
AC outlet
For battery operation the instrument requires six 1.5V
“AA” size, LR6 or equivalent batteries. (Alkaline batteries are recommended.) 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,
following the precautions listed below.
WARNING
Using Batteries
1 Open the battery compartment cover located on the
instrument’s bottom panel.
2 Insert the six new alkaline batteries, being careful
to follow the polarity markings on the side of the
compartment.
3 Replace the compartment cover, making sure that it
locks firmly in place.
NOTICE
• Never connect or disconnect the AC power adaptor when the
batteries are installed in the instrument and the power is on.
Doing so will turn the power off.
8
PSR-E233/YPT-230 Owner’s Manual
• Make sure to install the batteries with the proper orientation,
maintaining the correct polarity (as shown). Incorrect battery
installation may result in heat, fire and/or leaking of corrosive
chemicals.
• 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.
NOTE
• Use alkaline batteries for this instrument. Other types of batteries (including rechargeable batteries) may have sudden
drops of power when battery power becomes low.
Setting Up
Make all necessary connections BEFORE turning the power on.
Connecting headphones and
external audio equipment
Turn on the power
Turn down the volume by turning the [MASTER
VOLUME] control to the left and press the [ ]
(Standby/On) switch to turn on the power. While
playing the keyboard, adjust the volume level by using
the [MASTER VOLUME] control. Pressing the [ ]
(Standby/On) switch again turns the power off.
You can connect the PHONES/OUTPUT jack to a set
of headphones, keyboard amplifier, stereo system,
mixer, tape recorder, or other line-level audio device
to send the instrument’s output signal to that device.
The internal speakers are automatically shut off when
a plug is inserted into this jack. The PHONES/OUTPUT jack also functions as an external output.
NOTE
• You can set the Master equalizer (EQ) which is provided to
give you the best possible sound when listening through different reproduction systems. The Master equalizer (EQ) can
be set in the Function settings (page 29 Function 013).
CAUTION
• When using a power adaptor, even when the power is off, a
small amount of electricity is still being consumed by the
instrument. When you are not using the instrument for a long
time, make sure to unplug the AC power adaptor from the wall
AC outlet, and/or remove the batteries from the instrument.
Auto Power Off function
CAUTION
• Avoid listening with the headphones at high volume for
long periods of time; doing so may not only result in ear
fatigue, it may be damaging to your hearing.
CAUTION
• To prevent damage to the speakers, set the volume of the
external devices at the minimum setting and turn power off
the devices before connecting them. Failure to observe
these precautions 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.
To prevent unnecessary power consumption, this instrument features an Auto Power Off function that automatically turns the power off if the instrument is not used for
approximately 30 minutes.
To disable the Auto Power Off function
While holding down the lowest key, press the [ ]
(Standby/On) switch to turn on the power. Alternately
select “Off” in the Function settings (page 30 Function 024).
Connecting a footswitch
NOTE
The sustain function lets you produce a natural sustain
as you play by pressing an optional footswitch. Plug
the Yamaha FC4 or FC5 footswitch into the SUSTAIN jack and use it to switch sustain on and off.
• Any settings will be restored to the factory default settings
when the power is turned off.
NOTE
• Make sure that the footswitch plug is properly connected to
the SUSTAIN jack before turning on the power.
• Do not press the footswitch while turning the power on. Doing
this changes the recognized polarity of the footswitch, resulting in reversed footswitch operation.

You can supply a count-in at any tempo you like to start playback. Simply tap the
[TEMPO/TAP] button at any tempo—four times for time signatures in 4, and three
times for time signatures in 3—and the selected Song and Style rhythm will begin
playing at the tapped tempo.
NOTE
• In the case of a Style, the

About MIDI
The instrument features a MIDI terminals that can be connected to other MIDI instruments and devices for expanded musical functionality.
What is MIDI?
MIDI (Musical Instrument Digital Interface) is a world-standard interface for
communication between electronic musical instruments and music devices. When
MIDI-equipped instruments are connected via a MIDI cable, it becomes possible
to transfer performance and setting data between them for significantly enhanced
performance and production potential.
CAUTION
• Connect the instrument to
external equipment only after
turning off power for all
devices. Then, turn on the
power, first to the instrument,
then to the connected external equipment. Reverse this
order when you turn the
power off.
NOTE
• MIDI cables (sold separately)
must be used for connecting to
MIDI devices. They can be
bought at music stores, etc.
Transferring Performance Data To and From Another Instrument
By connecting the instrument to other MIDI devices or a computer, the performance data of the instrument can be used on those other MIDI devices or computer, and also the performance data from other MIDI devices and computer can
be received and sounded with the instrument.
A Yamaha UX16 or similar USB-MIDI interface (sold separately) will be necessary for MIDI connection between the instrument and a USB-equipped computer.
Make sure to purchase a Yamaha UX16 or a quality USB-MIDI interface at a
musical instrument store, computer store or electrical appliance store.
If you use the UX16 interface, install the driver supplied with the interface on your
computer.
MIDI settings such as Local Control are made in the Function settings (page 29
Function 015–017).
NOTE
• Preset Song data cannot be
transmitted from the instrument
by the Song Out function.
When the instrument is connected with another MIDI device, it transmits/receives performance data.

Appendix
Troubleshooting
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.
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.
Check the Local Control on/off. (See page 29 Function 015.)
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.
Playing keys in the right hand area of the keyboard does
not produce any sound.
When using the Dictionary function (page 20), the keys in the right hand area
are used only for entering the chord root and type.
The Style or Song does not play back when the [START/ Is External Clock set to ON? Make sure External Clock is set to OFF; refer to
STOP] button is pressed.
“Function Settings” on page 29 (Function 016).
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.
Make sure that the Style Volume (page 29 Function 001) is set to an appropriate level.
Is the Split Point set at an appropriate key for the cords you are playing? Set
the Split Point at an appropriate key (page 29 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 properly.
• 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 footswitch (for sustain) seems to produce the oppo- The polarity of the footswitch is reversed. Make sure that the footswitch plug is

the sound and releasing it sustains the sounds.
Regardless of how strongly play the keys, the level of
the sound does not change.
Since this keyboard does not have touch response, the level of the sound
does not change in response to your playing strength.

•
•
•
The batteries are low or dead. Replace all six batteries with completely new
ones, or use the optional AC adaptor.
The volume is too soft.
The sound quality is poor.
The rhythm stops unexpectedly or will not play.
The Song, etc. does not play correctly.
Power suddenly and unexpectedly turns off.

PSR-E233/YPT-230 Owner’s Manual
This is normal and the Auto Power Off function may have been activated
(page 9). If you need to disable the Auto Power Off function, select “Off” in the
Function settings (page 30 Function 024).
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).

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 “140: 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.)
