WARNING
SPECIFICATIONS SUBJECT TO CHANGE:
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of serious injury or
even death from electrical shock, short-circuiting, damages, fire or other hazards. These
precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
The information contained in this manual is believed to be
correct at the time of printing. However, Yamaha reserves
the right to change or modify any of the specifications without
notice or obligation to update existing units.
• Do not open the instrument or attempt to disassemble the internal parts or modify them in any way. The instrument contains no userserviceable parts. If it should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and have it inspected by qualified Yamaha
service personnel.
This product, either alone or in combination with an amplifier
and headphones or speaker/s, may be capable of producing
sound levels that could cause permanent hearing loss. DO
NOT operate for long periods of time at a high volume level
or at a level that is uncomfortable. If you experience any
hearing loss or ringing in the ears, you should consult an
audiologist.
IMPORTANT: The louder the sound, the shorter the time
period before damage occurs.
• Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet conditions, or place containers on it containing liquids which
might spill into any openings.
• If the AC adaptor cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged, or if there is a sudden loss of sound during use of the instrument, or if
any unusual smells or smoke should appear to be caused by it, immediately turn off the power switch, disconnect the adaptor plug
from the outlet, and have the instrument inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
Congratulations on your purchase of the Yamaha PortaSound.

• Before cleaning the instrument, always remove the electric plug from the outlet. Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet
hands.
• Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may have accumulated on it.
CAUTION
• Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a multiple-connector. Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or
possibly cause overheating in the outlet.
• Always replace all batteries at the same time. Do not use new batteries together with old ones. Also, do not mix battery types, such
as alkaline batteries with manganese batteries, or batteries from different makers, or different types of batteries from the same
maker, since this can cause overheating, fire, or battery fluid leakage.
• Do not dispose of batteries in fire.
• Do not attempt to recharge batteries that are not intended to be charged.
• 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.

• Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off the power for all components. Before turning the power on
or off for all components, set all volume levels to minimum.
• Do not expose the instrument to excessive dust or vibrations, or extreme cold or heat (such as in direct sunlight, near a heater, or in
a car during the day) to prevent the possibility of panel disfiguration or damage to the internal components.
• Do not use the instrument near other electrical products such as televisions, radios, or speakers, since this might cause interference
which can affect proper operation of the other products.
• Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall over.

This product may also use “household” type batteries. Some
of these may be rechargeable. Make sure that the battery
being charged is a rechargeable type and that the charger is
intended for the battery being charged.
* The AC adaptor is not a toy.
When installing batteries, do not mix batteries with new, or
with batteries of a different type. Batteries MUST be installed
correctly. Mismatches or incorrect installation may result in
overheating and battery case rupture.
If you use an AC adaptor, make sure you only use the PA-3B adaptor
(optional). The use of any other adaptor may result in damage, overheating or fire. In such a case, the warranty will be void so please use caution.
Warning:
Do not attempt to disassemble, or incinerate any battery.
Keep all batteries away from children. Dispose of used
batteries promptly and as regulated by the laws in your area.
Note: Check with any retailer of household type batteries in
your area for battery disposal information.
