IMPORTANT NOTES
291a
In addition to the items listed under “USING THE UNIT SAFELY” on page 2 and 3, please read and observe the following:
Power Supply
301
• Do not connect this unit to same electrical outlet that is
being used by an electrical appliance that is controlled by
an inverter (such as a refrigerator, washing machine,
microwave oven, or air conditioner), or that contains a
motor. Depending on the way in which the electrical
appliance is used, power supply noise may cause this unit
to malfunction or may produce audible noise. If it is not
practical to use a separate electrical outlet, connect a
power supply noise filter between this unit and the
electrical outlet.
358
• Do not allow objects to remain on top of the keyboard.
This can be the cause of malfunction, such as keys ceasing
to produce sound.
359
• Do not paste stickers, decals, or the like to this instrument.
Peeling such matter off the instrument may damage the
exterior finish.
Maintenance
401b
• The AC adaptor will begin to generate heat after long
hours of consecutive use. This is normal, and is not a
cause for concern.
• To clean the unit, use a dry, soft cloth; or one that is
slightly dampened. Try to wipe the entire surface using an
equal amount of strength, moving the cloth along with the
grain of the wood. Rubbing too hard in the same area can
damage the finish.
307
402
• Before connecting this unit to other devices, turn off the
power to all units. This will help prevent malfunctions
and/or damage to speakers or other devices.
• Never use benzine, thinners, alcohol or solvents of any
kind, to avoid the possibility of discoloration and/or
deformation.
302
Placement
Additional Precautions
351
553
• Using the unit near power amplifiers (or other equipment
containing large power transformers) may induce hum.
To alleviate the problem, change the orientation of this
unit; or move it farther away from the source of interference.
• Use a reasonable amount of care when using the unit’s
buttons, sliders, or other controls; and when using its jacks
and connectors. Rough handling can lead to malfunctions.
352a
• This device may interfere with radio and television
reception. Do not use this device in the vicinity of such
receivers.
352b
• Noise may be produced if wireless communications
devices, such as cell phones, are operated in the vicinity of
this unit. Such noise could occur when receiving or initiating a call, or while conversing. Should you experience
such problems, you should relocate such wireless devices
so they are at a greater distance from this unit, or switch
them off.
354b
• Do not expose the unit to direct sunlight, place it near
devices that radiate heat, leave it inside an enclosed
vehicle, or otherwise subject it to temperature extremes.
Also, do not allow lighting devices that normally are used
while their light source is very close to the unit (such as a
piano light), or powerful spotlights to shine upon the
same area of the unit for extended periods of time.
Excessive heat can deform or discolor the unit.
355b
• When moved from one location to another where the
temperature and/or humidity is very different, water
droplets (condensation) may form inside the unit. Damage
or malfunction may result if you attempt to use the unit in
this condition. Therefore, before using the unit, you must
allow it to stand for several hours, until the condensation
has completely evaporated.
356
• Do not allow rubber, vinyl, or similar materials to remain
on the unit for long periods of time. Such objects can
discolor or otherwise harmfully affect the finish.
4
556
• When connecting / disconnecting all cables, grasp the
connector itself—never pull on the cable. This way you
will avoid causing shorts, or damage to the cable’s
internal elements.
558a
• To avoid disturbing your neighbors, try to keep the unit’s
volume at reasonable levels. You may prefer to use
headphones, so you do not need to be concerned about
those around you (especially when it is late at night).
559a
• When you need to transport the unit, package it in the box
(including padding) that it came in, if possible. Otherwise,
you will need to use equivalent packaging materials.
560
• Do not apply undue force to the music stand while it is in
use.
562
• Use a cable from Roland to make the connection. If using
some other make of connection cable, please note the
following precautions.
• Some connection cables contain resistors. Do not use
cables that incorporate resistors for connecting to this
unit. The use of such cables can cause the sound level
to be extremely low, or impossible to hear. For information on cable specifications, contact the manufacturer of the cable.

Introduction
Congratulations on your choice of the Roland Digital Piano F-50.
In order to enjoy reliable performance of your new keyboard for many years to come, please take the time
to read through this manual in its entirety.
Main Features
Refined Wood Grain, Compact Design
The simple design and light wood grain finish is at home
both in the living room as well as in the children’s room.
And at a compact about 300 millimeters deep, it fits in
perfectly with other furniture.
Authentic Piano Performances
High-quality concert grand piano tones, along with the
Hammer Action keyboard, which gives more realistic piano

fig.00-01
Ground Terminal
Chord Hook
Rear
1. Attach the included screws to the F-50’s rear
panel.
Be sure to use the supplied screws for attaching the
music stand.
Turn the screws clockwise until they’re held in place–but
don’t tighten them yet.
2. Put the music stand between the screws and the
F-50’s body.
3. While supporting the music stand with one hand,
secure it in place by turning the screws.
4. Plug the Power Cord into a power outlet.
NOTE
To prevent the inadvertent disruption of power to your unit
(should the plug be pulled out accidentally), to avoid
applying undue stress to the DC In connector, anchor the
power cord using the cord hook, as shown in the diagram.
Even if the cord is fastened, strong tension applied to the
cord may cause it to be damaged or broken. Be careful not to
pull the cord accidentally, or to apply strong pressure to it.
In some cases, depending on the environment in which
the unit is installed, the surface of the panel may
sometimes feel rough and grainy. This is due to an
infinitesimal electrical charge, which is absolutely
harmless. However, if you are concerned about this,
connect the ground terminal (see above figure) with an
external ground. When the unit is grounded, a slight
hum may occur, depending on the particulars of your
installation. If you are unsure of the connection method,
contact the nearest Roland Service Center, or an
authorized Roland distributor, as listed on the
“Information” page.
Unsuitable places for connection
• Water pipes (may result in shock or electrocution)
• Gas pipes (may result in fire or explosion)
• Telephone-line ground or lightning rod (may be
dangerous in the event of lightning)
10
When attaching the music stand, support it firmly with
one hand to make sure that you don’t drop it. Be careful,
so you don’t get your fingers pinched.
4. To remove the music stand, support it with one
hand while loosening the screws.
After removing the music stand, don’t forget to retighten
the screws.
NOTE
When moving the piano, be sure to remove the music stand
as a safety precaution.
NOTE
Do not apply excessive force to the installed music stand.

NOTE
Raising the volume excessively may cause the sound to
distort. Enjoy the piano at an appropriate volume level.
Connecting Headphones
The F-50 features two headphone jacks. This allows two
people to listen through headphones (sold separately)
simultaneously, making it very useful for lessons and when
performing piano pieces for four hands. Additionally, this
allows you to play without having to worry about bothering
others around you, even at night.

1. Turn the [Volume] knob to lower the volume to
the minimum level.
2. Connect the headphones (sold separately) to
either of the headphone jacks at the lower left of
the instrument.
3. Use the [Volume] knob to adjust the overall
volume level.
The sound from the built-in speakers stops. Sound will
be heard only through the headphones.
Use Stereo headphones (stereo 1/4 inch phone type).

Some Notes on Using Headphones
• To prevent damage to the cord, handle the headphones
only by the headset or the plug.
• Connecting the headphones when the volume of
connected equipment is turned up may result in damage
to the headphones. Lower the volume on the F-50 before
plugging in the headphones.
• Listening at excessively high volume levels will not only
damage the headphones, but may also cause hearing
loss. Use the headphones at a moderate volume level.

Transposing without
Changing Your Keyboard
Fingering (Key Transpose)
Adjusting the Pitch of the
Sound (Master Tuning)
You can transpose the key of a performance without having
to shift the position of your fingers on the keyboard.
This feature is called “Key Transpose.”
In situations such as when providing accompaniment to a
song, using the Key Transpose function to match the singer’s
vocal register lets you easily transpose the sounds without
changing the score.
These settings remains in effect until you turn off the power.
fig.03-03
In situations such as when playing ensemble with other
instruments, you can tune the F-50’s reference pitch to the
pitch of another instrument. The reference pitch generally
refers to the pitch of the note that’s played when you finger
the middle A key.
For a cleaner ensemble sound while performing with one or
more other instruments, ensure that each instrument’s
reference pitch is in tune with that of the other instruments.
This tuning of all the instruments to a reference pitch is
called “master tuning.” You can set the reference pitch
anywhere in a range of 415.3 Hz to 466.2 Hz.
When the instrument is turned on, the reference pitch is set
to “440.0 Hz.”

Read this chapter if you wish to connect the F-50 to an
external MIDI device.
If the F-50 is connected to a MIDI sequencer, such as one
from the MT series, you can record your performance on the
MIDI sequencer. The rich variety of sounds built into the MT
series can be played with the keyboard of the F-50.
About MIDI
MIDI, short for “Musical Instrument Digital Interface,”
was developed as a standard for the exchange of
performance data between electronic instruments and
computers.
The F-50 is equipped with MIDI connectors to allow
such exchange of performance data with external
equipment and devices. Connecting the keyboard to
other devices with these connectors provides you with
an even greater variety of ways to use your keyboard.

Connecting to MIDI Devices
Cautions when Connecting
an External MIDI Device
Here we will explain the “Local On/Off” and “Omni On/
Off” settings that you need to be aware of when connecting
the F-50 to an external MIDI device.
■ Switching Local On/Off
Local On is set when the power is switched on.
1. While holding down the [Variation] button and
[Heavy] button, the “C8” note to turn the setting
On, or press the “B7” note to turn the setting Off.
fig.8-07.e
■ Disconnecting the F-50’s
keyboard and internal sound
generator (Local On/Off)
When the F-50 is connected to a MIDI sequencer or the like,
set it to Local Off.
As shown in the diagram, the data that is produced when
you play the keyboard will reach the sound generator by two
routes, (1) and (2), causing each note to be played in
duplicate. To prevent this, select the Local Off setting to cut
route (1).

If the F-50 is connected to a Roland MT series (except MT90s), it is not necessary to make the Local Off setting. When
the power is turned on, the MT series will transmit a Local
Off message. If you turn the power on in the order of first the
F-50 and then the MT series, the F-50 will automatically be
set to Local Off.
■ Receiving on all MIDI channels
(Omni On/Off)
When set to Omni On, the F-50 will sound as a result of
received MIDI messages, no matter which channel the
messages arrive on.
When set to Omni Off, the F-50 will recognize only the
messages that arrive on the MIDI channel that has been
selected, as explained under “Set the MIDI Channel.”
■ Switching Omni On/Off
Omni On is automatically set when the power is switched on.
This sets it to Local Off:

channel so it matches the channel being used for
transmission by the connected MIDI device.
Upon power-up, the F-50 is set to Omni On (p. 24). This
means that if you are using a MIDI keyboard or MIDI
sequencer to play the F-50’s tones, messages will be received
on all channels, regardless of any MIDI channel settings. If
you want to receive only on a specific channel that a
connected MIDI device will be using, switch the F-50 to
Omni Off, then set the MIDI channel.

When the F-50 is turned on, Channel “1” is selected.

Troubleshooting
If you are encountering problems with the unit, please read the section below before assuming that there is a malfunction.
Case
The piano
cannot be
switched on
Cause/Remedy
Is the AC adaptor properly connected?
(p. 10)
Is the [Volume] knob set to the
minimum position? (p. 12)
No sound is
produced
Are the headphones connected? (p. 12)
Has a plug remained connected to the
phones jack? (p. 12)
Case
Cause/Remedy
In the upper
range, the
sound changes
abruptly
beyond a
certain key
On an acoustic piano, notes in the upper
one and a half octaves of the keyboard
continue to sound until they decay
naturally, regardless of the damper
pedal. There is a difference in the timbre
as well. Roland pianos faithfully
simulate such characteristics of the
acoustic piano. On the F-50, the range
that is unaffected by the damper pedal
will change depending on the Key
Transpose setting.
Is Local On/Off set to “Off”? (p. 24)
Only One Tone
Plays in Dual
Play
Depending on the setting for volume
balance, and the particular selection of
tones you make, certain tones may be
difficult to hear when layered. Try
adjusting volume balance (p. 21).
Demo songs
do not play
Buttons do not
function
Is Panel Lock on? (p. 19)
Keyboard
sound does not
change
Two sounds
are produced
when the
keyboard is
played
Is the keyboard in Dual Play mode?
(p. 16)
The tone has
changed in the
Dual Play
If you use Dual Play with a Tone button
for which tone number 3 or 4 is selected,
tone number 1 will be selected for that
Tone button (p. 15).
The pitch of the
keyboard
sounds
incorrect
The recorded
performance
has
disappeared
Sound is
distorted
If you can’t hear the problem in the
headphones:
Here, a different cause (such as
resonance produced by the F-50) would
be suspect. Consult your Roland dealer
or nearest Roland Service Center.
Is the Master Tuning setting correct?
(p. 20)
Is the Key Transpose setting correct?
(p. 20)
Any performance that has been
recorded is deleted when the power to
the F-50 is turned off. A performance
cannot be restored once it’s been
deleted.
Raising the volume too high may distort
the sound. Adjust the volume level with
the [Volume] knob (p. 12).
With certain tones, the sounds may
seem to be distorted.
26
High-Pitched
Whine is
Produced
When listening through headphones:
Certain piano tones that feature vibrant,
sparking sounds contain a large highfrequency component, which may make
it appear that a metallic reverberation
has been applied. This faithfully
reproduces the characteristics of
acoustic pianos, and does not indicate
any malfunction. Since this
reverberation becomes particularly
audible when supplemented by heavy
reverb, you may be able to diminish the
problem by reducing the amount of
reverb applied to the sound.
Bass notes
sound wrong/
buzzing or
vibration
occurs
If you can’t hear the problem in the
headphones:
When playing at high volumes,
resonance may occur in the piano itself
or in objects near the piano. At times,
other objects in the room, such as
fluorescent lights or glass doors, could
start vibrating. Such phenomenon
becomes more prevalent when
sounding the lower frequencies at high
volume. To minimize such unwanted
resonance, please observe the following:
• Locate the instrument so it is 10-15
cm away from walls.
• Reduce the volume.
• Increase the distance from the object
that is resonating.
If you can hear the problem in the
headphones:
The problem may be for a different
reason. Please contact your dealer.

Troubleshooting
Case
Cause/Remedy
The pedals are
not functioning
Are the pedals connected properly?
(p. 11)
The pedals
function
intermittently
Unplugging a pedal cord from the unit
while the power is on may cause the
pedal’s effect to be applied without
stopping. The power of the F-50 must be
turned off before inserting or removing
a pedal cord (p. 11).
[Reverb]
button’s
indicator lights
automatically
Reverb is switched on automatically
whenever a demo song is played.
Since each song has been supplied with
its own reverb settings, the way in
which reverb is applied changes when
you switch demo songs.
When the F-50 is connected to an external device
Is the power to all equipment turned
on?
No sound is
produced
Are the connections between F-50 and
the MIDI sequencer or the other
external devices correct? (p. 22, p. 23)
Is the MIDI channel setting correct? (p.
25)
Is the Omni On/Off setting correct? (p.
24)
Strange
sounds (or two
sounds) are
produced when
the
F-50 is played
With the sequencer’s “Thru” function
on, the same notes may be sounded
twice. Set the F-50 to Local off (p. 24).
The volume
level of the
instrument
connected to
the Input jack is
too low
Could you be using a connection cable
that contains a resistor?
Use a connection cable that does not
contain a resistor.
