This may cause the cord to melt leading to
possible fire or electrical shock.
• When unplugging the AC adaptor from an
electrical outlet, always make sure to pull
on the adaptor itself and not the cord. Pulling excessively on the cord may cause it to
be damaged or break leading to possible
fire or electrical shock.
• Do not touch the AC adaptor with wet

electrical shock.
• When not using the instrument for an extended period such as when traveling, always make sure to unplug the AC adaptor
from the electrical outlet for safety reasons.
• After use turn off the power switch of the
instrument and unplug the AC adaptor
from the electrical outlet.
• At least once a year, unplug the AC adaptor from the power outlet and clean the
area around the prongs of the plug. Dust
build up around the prongs can create the
danger of fire.
Batteries
• Improper battery use may cause batteries
to rupture and leak. This may cause injury,
malfunction of the instrument or discoloration of furniture and other articles that come
into contact with battery fluid. Take care to
observe the following.
• Install batteries so their polarity (+/–)
matches that indicated on the instrument.
• For safety and to prevent possible leakage
of battery fluid, always make sure to remove batteries from the instrument when
you do not plan to use it for a long time.
• Always make sure that the batteries making up a set are all of the same type.
• Never combine new batteries with old
ones.

Transport
• When transporting the instrument, always
make sure to unplug the AC adaptor from
the electrical outlet and confirm that all
other external connections have been disconnected. Only then should the instrument
be transported. If the above is not done, the
cord may be damaged leading to possible
fire or electrical shock.

Care
• Whenever caring, make sure to first unplug the AC adaptor from the electrical outlet. Also remove the instrument’s batteries
if battery power is being used.
Location
• Never locate the instrument in areas subject to high humidity or heavy accumulation of dust. Doing so may cause fire or
electrical shock.
• Never locate the instrument in areas subject to grease splatters or steam, such as in a
kitchen or near a humidifier. Doing so may
cause fire or electrical shock.
Do not place keyboard on lacquered furniture.
• The instrument’s silicone rubber feet may
eventually blacken or scar lacquered surfaces. Use felt cloth pads to insulate the feet
or preferably use a CASIO musical instrument stand designed for your keyboard.
Do not place heavy objects on the instrument.
• Do not place heavy objects on the instrument. This may cause the instrument to tip
over or break resulting in injury.
Volume
• Very high volume levels can damage hearing. Avoid using the instrument at very
high volume settings for long periods. Consult with a physician immediately if you
experience impaired hearing or ringing in
the ears.
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.
Extremely high or low temperature 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.
Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) Precautions
• Avoid subjecting the keyboard's LCD to
strong impact, which can crack or break the
LCD's glass creating the danger of personal
injury.
• Should the LCD glass ever crack or break,
do not allow the liquid inside the LCD to
come into contact with your skin, which
can cause inflammation and reddening.
*Should the LCD liquid get into your
mouth, immediately wash out your mouth
with water and then consult a physician.
*Should the LCD liquid get in your eyes or
on your skin, immediately flush with water for at least 15 minutes and then consult
a physician.
Do not get onto the instrument or stand.*
• Do not crawl on top of the instrument or its
optional stand. Particular caution is required in homes having small children. This
may cause the instrument or stand to tip
over and break resulting in injury.
Optional Stand*
• Carefully assemble the stand following the
assembly instructions that come with it. Securely tighten all bolts, nuts, and fasteners,
and make sure that you mount the instrument correctly onto the stand. Incorrectly
or insufficiently tightening screws, or incorrectly mounting the instrument onto the
stand can cause the stand to tip over or the
instrument to fall off the stand, possibly
leading to injury.
* The stand is available as an option.
