PRECAUTIONS
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING
* Please keep this manual in a safe place for future reference.
WARNING
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:
Power supply/AC power adaptor
Water warning
• Only use the voltage specified as correct for the instrument. The required
voltage is printed on the name plate of the instrument.
• Use the specified adaptor (page 105) only. Using the wrong adaptor can result
in damage to the instrument or overheating.
• Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may have
accumulated on it.
• Do not place the AC adaptor cord near heat sources such as heaters or
radiators, and do not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, place
heavy objects on it, or place it in a position where anyone could walk on, trip
over, or roll anything over it.
• 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 any liquid such as water seeps into the instrument, turn off the
power immediately and unplug the power cord from the AC outlet. Then have
the instrument inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.
Fire warning
• Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit.
A burning item may fall over and cause a fire.
Do not open
If you notice any abnormality
• Do not open the instrument or attempt to disassemble the internal parts or
modify them in any way. The instrument contains no user-serviceable parts. If it
should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and have it
inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.
• 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.
CAUTION
Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage
to the instrument or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally
fall over.
Power supply/AC power adaptor
• When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold
the plug itself and not the cord.
• Unplug the AC power adaptor when not using the instrument, or during
electrical storms.
• 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.
Location
• 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.
• Before moving the instrument, remove all connected adaptor and other cables.
• When setting up the product, make sure that the AC outlet you are using is
easily accessible. If some trouble or malfunction occurs, immediately turn off
the power switch and disconnect the plug from the outlet. Even when the power
switch is turned off, electricity is still flowing to the product at the minimum
level. When you are not using the product for a long time, make sure to unplug
the power cord from the wall AC outlet.
• Use only the stand specified for the instrument. When attaching the stand or
rack, use the provided screws only. Failure to do so could cause damage to the
internal components or result in the instrument falling over.
• Do not place objects in front of the instrument’s air vent, since this may prevent
adequate ventilation of the internal components, and possibly result in the
instrument overheating.
• Do not use the instrument in the vicinity of a TV, radio, stereo equipment,
mobile phone, or other electric devices. Otherwise, the instrument, TV, or radio
may generate noise.

Connections
Saving data
• 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. Also, be sure to set the volumes
of all components at their minimum levels and gradually raise the volume
controls while playing the instrument to set the desired listening level.
Maintenance
• When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thinners,
solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths.
Handling caution
• Do not insert a finger or hand in any gaps on the instrument.
• Never insert or drop paper, metallic, or other objects into the gaps on the panel
or keyboard. If this happens, turn off the power immediately and unplug the
power cord from the AC outlet. Then have the instrument inspected by
qualified Yamaha service personnel.
Saving and backing up your data
• Edited Songs/Styles/Voices/Multi Pads and MIDI settings are lost when you
turn off the power to the instrument. Save the data to the USER tab display
(page 58), USB storage device (USB flash memory, etc.).
• Data in the USER tab display may be lost due to malfunction or incorrect
operation. Save important data to a USB storage device.
When you change settings in a display page and then exit from that
page, Data other than above (edited Songs/Styles/Voices/Multi Pads
and MIDI settings, etc.) is automatically stored. However, this edited
data is lost if you turn off the power without properly exiting from the
relevant display.
Backing up the USB storage device
• To protect against data loss through media damage, we recommend that you
save your important data onto two USB storage devices.
• Do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might
discolor the panel or keyboard.
• Do not rest your weight on, or place heavy objects on the instrument, and do
not use excessive force on the buttons, switches or connectors.
• Do not use the instrument/device or headphones for a long period of time at a
high or uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing
loss. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a
physician.
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modifications to the instrument, or data that is lost or destroyed.
Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use.
Even when the power switch is in the “STANDBY” position, electricity is still flowing to the instrument at the minimum level. When you are not using the instrument for a
long time, make sure you unplug the AC power adaptor from the wall AC outlet.

The instrument is compatible with the following formats.
“GM (General MIDI)” is one of the most common Voice allocation formats. “GM System Level 2” is a standard
specification that enhances the original “GM” and improves Song data compatibility. It provides for increased
polyphony, greater Voice selection, expanded Voice parameters, and integrated effect processing.
XG is a major enhancement of the GM System Level 1 format, and was developed by Yamaha specifically to provide more Voices and variations, as well as greater expressive control over Voices and effects, and to ensure compatibility of data well into the future.
GS was developed by the Roland Corporation. In the same way as Yamaha XG, GS is a major enhancement of the
GM specifically to provide more Voices and Drum kits and their variations, as well as greater expressive control
over Voices and effects.
The Yamaha XF format enhances the SMF (Standard MIDI File) standard with greater functionality and openended expandability for the future. This instrument is capable of displaying lyrics when an XF file containing lyric
data is played.
“SFF (Style File Format)” is an original Style file format by Yamaha which uses a unique conversion system to provide high-quality automatic accompaniment based on a wide range of chord types. “SFF GE (Guitar Edition)” is an
enhanced format of SFF, which features improved note transposition for guitar tracks.
(PSR-S910)
VH (Vocal Harmony) employs the digital signal processing technology to automatically add appropriate vocal harmonies to a lead vocal line sung by the user.

The use of an incompatible
adaptor may cause irreparable
damage to the PSR-S910/S710,
and may even pose a serious
shock hazard! ALWAYS UNPLUG
THE AC ADAPTOR FROM THE AC
POWER OUTLET WHEN THE
PSR-S910/S710 IS NOT IN USE.

NOTE
• Voice Characteristics
The Voice type and its defining characteristics are indicated above the Voice
name—Live!, Cool!, Sweet!, etc. For detailed explanation, refer to the Reference
Manual.
In this section, only MegaVoice and Super Articulation Voice are explained. These
Voices have special characteristics you should be aware of, and they require specific
performance techniques to bring out all of their expressive qualities.
MegaVoices
What makes MegaVoices special is their use of velocity switching. Each velocity
range (the measure of your playing strength) has a completely different sound.
For example, a guitar MegaVoice includes the sounds of various performance
techniques. In conventional instruments, different Voices having those sounds
would be called up via MIDI and played in combination to achieve the desired
effect. However, now with MegaVoices, a convincing guitar part can be played
with just a single Voice, using specific velocity values to play the desired sounds.
Because of the complex nature of these Voices and the precise velocities need to
play the sounds, they’re not intended for playing from the keyboard. They are,
however, very useful and convenient when creating MIDI data—especially when
you want to avoid using several different Voices just for a single instrument part.
MegaVoices and Super Articulation
Voices are only compatible with other
models which have those types of
Voices installed. Any Song, Style or
Multi Pads data you’ve created on the
instrument using these Voices will not
sound properly when played back on
other instruments.
NOTE
MegaVoices and Super Articulation
Voices sound differently depending
on the keyboard range, velocity,
touch, etc. Hence, if you apply HARMONY/ECHO effect, change the
transpose setting or change the Voice
Set parameters, unexpected or undesired sounds may result.
Super Articulation Voices (S.Art!) (PSR-S910)
The Super Articulation Voices provide many of same benefits as the MegaVoices,
but with greater playability and expressive control in real time.
For example, with the Saxophone Voice, if you play a C and then a D in a very
legato way, you will hear the note change seamlessly, as though a saxophone
player played it in a single breath. Similarly with the Concert Guitar Voice, the D
note would sound as a “hammer on,” without the string being plucked again.
Depending on how you play, other effects such as shake or breath noises (for the
Trumpet Voice), or finger noises (for the Guitar Voice) will be produced.
For details on how to best play each Super Articulation Voice, call up the
information window (pressing the [7 ▲] (INFO) button in the Voice Selection
display).

applied to all the keyboard parts (RIGHT 1, 2 and LEFT). The PITCH BEND wheel
is self-centering and will automatically return to normal pitch when released.
The maximum pitch bend range can be changed on the Mixing Console display:
E][F

PSR-S910/S710 Owner’s Manual
NOTE
The effects caused by using the
PITCH BEND Wheel may not be
applied to the LEFT part during Style
playback depending on the Style setting.
Using the Modulation Wheel
The Modulation function applies a vibrato effect to notes played on the keyboard.
By default, this is applied to the keyboard parts RIGHT 1 and 2. Moving the
MODULATION wheel down (toward you) decreases the depth of the effect, while
moving it up (away from you) increases it.
NOTE
Depending on the selected Voice, the
MODULATION wheel may control volume, filter or some other parameter
instead of vibrato.
NOTE
To avoid accidentally applying modulation, make sure the MODULATION
Wheel is set at minimum (down)
position before you start playing.
You can set whether the effects caused by the MODULATION Wheel will be
applied or not to each of the keyboard part: [FUNCTION] → [D] CONTROLLER
→ TAB [E][F] KEYBOARD/PANEL → [A]/[B] 2 MODULATION WHEEL.
The effects caused by using the MODULATION wheel may not be applied to
the LEFT part during Style playback
depending on the Style setting.
Applying Voice Effects
The PSR-S910/S710 features a sophisticated multi-processor effect system which
can add extraordinary depth and expression to your sound. This effect system can be
turned on or off by using the following buttons.
These three effect systems are applied to the
currently selected keyboard part (RIGHT 1,
2, or LEFT)
• HARMONY/ECHO
The Harmony/Echo types are applied to the right-hand Voices. Refer to “Applying
Harmony to Your Right-hand Melody” on page 36.
• TOUCH
This button turns the touch response of the keyboard on or off. When OFF, the same
volume is produced no matter how strongly or softly you play the keyboard.
• SUSTAIN
When this Sustain function is on, all notes played on the keyboard with right-hand
part (RIGHT 1 and 2) have a longer sustain.
• MONO
When this button is on, the part’s Voice is played monophonically (only one note at a
time). Using the MONO mode lets you play single, lead sounds (such as brass
instruments) more realistically. It also lets you expressively control the Portamento
effect (depending on the selected Voice) by playing legato.
When this button is off, the part’s Voice played polyphonically.
NOTE
Portamento is a function that creates a
smooth transition in pitch from the
first note played on the keyboard to
the next.

Styles
– Playing Rhythm and Accompaniment –
The instrument features a variety of accompaniment and rhythmic
backing patterns (called “Styles”) in a variety of different musical
genres including pop, jazz, and many others. The Style features
Auto Accompaniment, letting you produce automatic
accompaniment playback simply by playing “chords” with your
left hand. This lets you automatically recreate the sound of a full
band or orchestra—even if you’re playing by yourself.

Style Characteristics
The Style type and its defining characteristics are indicated on the Preset
Style icon.
2
Styles – Playing Rhythm and Accompaniment –
• Pro: These Styles provide professional and exciting arrangements combined with perfect playability. The resulting accompaniment exactly follows the chords of the player. As a result, your chord changes and colorful
harmonies are instantly transformed into lifelike musical accompaniment.
• Session: These Styles provide even greater realism and authentic backing
by mixing in original chord types and changes, as well as special riffs with
chord changes, with the Main sections. These have been programmed to
add “spice” and a professional touch to your performances of certain
songs and in certain genres. Keep in mind, however, that the Styles may
not necessarily be appropriate—or even harmonically correct-for all songs
and for all chord playing. In some cases for example, playing a simple
major triad for a country song may result in a “jazzy” seventh chord, or
playing an on-bass chord may result in inappropriate or unexpected
accompaniment.
Style file compatibility
The PSR-S910/S710 uses the SFF GE file format (page 9). The PSR-S910/
S710 can play back existing SFF files, but they will be saved in the SFF GE
format when the file is saved (or pasted) in the PSR-S910/S710. Please keep
in mind that the saved file can only be played back on instruments that are
compatible with the SFF GE format.

Troubleshooting
Overall
A click or pop is heard when the power is turned on or off.
Electrical current is being applied to the instrument. This is normal.
Noise is heard from the instrument’s speakers.
Noise may be heard if a mobile phone is used near the instrument or
if the phone is ringing. Turn off the mobile phone, or use it further
away from the instrument.
There is a slight difference in sound quality among different notes
played on the keyboard.
This is normal and is a result of the instrument’s sampling system.
Some Voices have a looping sound.
Some noise or vibrato is noticeable at higher pitches, depending
upon the Voice.
The overall volume is too low, or, no sound is heard.
The master volume may be set too low. Set it to an appropriate level
with the [MASTER VOLUME] dial.
All keyboard parts are set to off. Use the PART ON/OFF [RIGHT 1]/
[RIGHT 2]/[LEFT] button to turn it on.
The volume of the individual parts may be set too low. Raise the volume in the BALANCE display (page 48).
Make sure the desired channel is set to ON (pages 47, 54).
Headphones are connected, disabling the speaker output. Unplug the
headphones.
The [FADE IN/OUT] button is on, muting the sound. Press the [FADE
IN/OUT] button to turn the function off.
The sound is distorted or noisy.
The volume may be turned up too high. Make sure all relevant volume
settings are appropriate.
Not all simultaneously played notes sound.
You are probably exceeding the maximum polyphony (page 104) of
the instrument. When the maximum polyphony is exceeded, the earliest played notes will stop sounding, letting the latest played notes
sound.
The keyboard volume is lower than the Song/Style playback volume.
The volume of the keyboard parts may be set too low. Raise the volume in the BALANCE display (page 48).
The Main display does not appear even when turning the power on.
This may occur if a USB storage device has been installed to the
instrument. Installation of some USB storage device may result a long
interval between turning the power on and appearance of the Main
display. To avoid this, turn the power on after disconnecting the
device.
Some characters of the file/folder name are garbled.
The language settings have been changed. Set the appropriate language for the file/folder name (page 16).
An existing file is not shown.
The file extension (.MID, etc.) may have been changed or deleted.
Manually rename the file, adding the appropriate extension, on a
computer.
Data files with names of more than 50 characters cannot be handled
by the instrument. Rename the file, reducing the number of characters to 50 or less.
PSR-S910/S710 Owner’s Manual
99
Troubleshooting
This may be caused by certain effects or filter resonance settings.
Check the effect or filter settings and change them accordingly,
referring to the Reference Manual.
Voice
The Voice selected from the Voice Selection display does not
sound.
Check whether or not the selected part is turned on (page 32).
To select the Voice for the right-hand key range, press the PART
SELECT [RIGHT 1] button. For the Voice to be layered in the righthand range, press the PART SELECT [RIGHT 2] button. To select the
Voice for the left-hand key range, press the PART SELECT [LEFT]
button.
A strange “flanging” or “doubling” sound occurs. The sound is
slightly different each time the keys are played.
The RIGHT 1 and RIGHT 2 parts are set to “ON,” and both parts are
set to play the same Voice. Turn off the RIGHT 2 part or change the
Voice of one of the parts.
Some Voices will jump an octave in pitch when played in the upper
or lower registers.
This is normal. Some voices have a pitch limit which, when reached,
causes this type of pitch shift.
Style
The Style does not start even when the [START/STOP] button is
pressed.
The Rhythm channel of the selected Style may not contain any data.
Turn the [ACMP] button on and play left-hand section on the keyboard
to sound the accompaniment part of the Style.
Only the rhythm channel plays.
Make sure the Auto Accompaniment function is turned on; press the
[ACMP] button.
You may be playing keys in the right hand range of the keyboard.
Make sure to play keys in the chord range of the keyboard.
Styles in a USB storage device cannot be selected.
If the size of the Style data is large (about 120 KB or greater), the
Style cannot be selected because the data is too large to be ready by
the instrument.
Song
Songs cannot be selected.
This may be because the language settings have been changed. Set
the appropriate language for the Song file name.
If the size of the Song data is large (about 300 KB or greater), the
Song cannot be selected because the data is too large to be read by
the instrument.
Song playback does not start.
The Song has been stopped at the end of the Song data. Return to
the beginning of the Song by pressing the SONG [■] (STOP) button.
In the case a Song to which write-protect has been applied (“Prot. 2
Edit” is shown at the upper left of the Song name), the original file
may not be in the same folder. It cannot be played back unless the
original file (showing “Prot.2 Orig” at the upper left of the Song name)
is in the same folder.
In case of a Song to which write-protect has been applied (“Prot. 2
Edit” is shown at the upper left of the Song name), the original file
name may have been changed. Rename the file with the original file
name (so that “Prot.2 Orig” is shown at the upper left of the Song
name).
Troubleshooting
In case of a Song to which write-protect has been applied (“Prot. 2
Edit” is shown at the upper left of the Song name), the file icon may
have been changed. Songs to which write-protect has been applied
cannot be played back when the file icon of the original has been
changed.
Song playback stops before the Song is finished.
The Guide function is turned on. (In this case, playback is “waiting” for
the correct key to be played.) Press the [GUIDE] button to turn off the
guide function.
The measure number is different from that of the score in the Song
Position display, shown by pressing the [REW]/[FF] buttons.
This happens when playing back music data for which a specific, fixed
tempo is set.
When playing back a Song, some channels do not play.
Playback of these channels may be set to “OFF.” Turn playback on for
those channels that are set to “OFF” (page 54).
The tempo, beat, measure and music notation is not displayed correctly.
Some Song data for the instrument has been recorded with special
“free tempo” settings. For such Song data, the tempo, beat, measure
and music notation will not be displayed correctly.

USB Audio function
The message “This drive is busy now.” appeared, and then the
recording was aborted.
Make sure to use a compatible USB storage device (page 94).
Make sure that the USB storage device has enough memory
(page 78).
If you are using a USB memory device to which data has already
been recorded, check first that no important data remains on the
device, then format it (page 95) and try recording again.
Audio files cannot be selected.
The file format may not be compatible with the instrument. The compatible formats are: MP3 and WAV (PSR-S910), WAV (PSR-S710).
The DRM protected files cannot be played back.
Recorded file is played back at a different volume compared to
when it was recorded.
The audio playback volume has been changed. Setting the volume
value to 100 plays back the file as the same volume when it was
recorded (page 77).
Mixing Console
The sound seems strange or different than expected when changing a rhythm Voice (drum kit, etc.) of the Style or Song from the
Mixer.
When changing the rhythm/percussion Voices (drum kits, etc.) of the
Style and Song from the VOICE parameter, the detailed settings
related to the drum voice are reset, and in some cases you may be
unable to restore the original sound. In the case of Song playback,
you can restore the original sound by returning to the beginning of the
Song and playing back from that point. In the case of Style play, you
can restore the original sound by selecting the same Style again.
Microphone/Vocal Harmony (PSR-S910)
The microphone input signal cannot be recorded.
The microphone input signal cannot be recorded by Song recording.
Use the USB Audio function (page 77).
Harmony can be heard in addition to the microphone sound.
Vocal Harmony is set to “ON.” Turn Vocal Harmony off (page 91).
The Vocal Harmony effect sounds distorted or out-of-tune.
Your vocal microphone may be picking up extraneous sounds, such
as the Style sound from the instrument. In particular, bass sounds
can cause mistracking of the Vocal Harmony. To remedy this:
• Sing as closely to the microphone as possible.
• Use a unidirectional microphone.
• Turn down the Master volume, Style volume, or Song volume control
(pages 15, 48).
Foot Pedal
Turn the instrument’s power off, then turn on again without pressing

1-YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY
ON ARRANGER WORKSTATION KEYBOARDS
Thank you for selecting a Yamaha product. Yamaha products are designed and manufactured to provide a high level of defect-free
performance. Yamaha Corporation of America (“Yamaha”) is proud of the experience and craftsmanship that goes into each and
every Yamaha product. Yamaha sells its products through a network of reputable, specially authorized dealers and is pleased to offer
you, the Original Owner, the following Limited Warranty, which applies only to products that have been (1) directly purchased from
Yamaha’s authorized dealers in the fifty states of the USA and District of Columbia (the “Warranted Area”) and (2) used exclusively in
the Warranted Area. Yamaha suggests that you read the Limited Warranty thoroughly, and invites you to contact your authorized
Yamaha dealer or Yamaha Customer Service if you have any questions.
Coverage: Yamaha will, at its option, repair or replace the product covered by this warranty if it becomes defective, malfunctions
or otherwise fails to conform with this warranty under normal use and service during the term of this warranty, without charge for labor
or materials. Repairs may be performed using new or refurbished parts that meet or exceed Yamaha specifications for new parts. If
Yamaha elects to replace the product, the replacement may be a reconditioned unit. You will be responsible for any installation or
removal charges and for any initial shipping charges if the product(s) must be shipped for warranty service. However, Yamaha will
pay the return shipping charges to any destination within the USA if the repairs are covered by the warranty. This warranty does not
cover (a) damage, deterioration or malfunction resulting from accident, negligence, misuse, abuse, improper installation or operation
or failure to follow instructions according to the Owner’s Manual for this product; any shipment of the product (claims must be
presented to the carrier); repair or attempted repair by anyone other than Yamaha or an authorized Yamaha Service Center; (b) any
unit which has been altered or on which the serial number has been defaced, modified or removed; (c) normal wear and any periodic
maintenance; (d) deterioration due to perspiration, corrosive atmosphere or other external causes such as extremes in temperature
or humidity; (e) damages attributable to power line surge or related electrical abnormalities, lightning damage or acts of God; or (f)
RFI/EMI (Interference/noise) caused by improper grounding or the improper use of either certified or uncertified equipment, if
applicable. Any evidence of alteration, erasing or forgery of proof-of-purchase documents will cause this warranty to be void. This
warranty covers only the Original Owner and is not transferable.
In Order to Obtain Warranty Service: Warranty service will only be provided for defective products within the Warranted
Area. Contact your local authorized Yamaha dealer who will advise you of the procedures to be followed. If this is not successful,
contact Yamaha at the address, telephone number or website shown below. Yamaha may request that you send the defective
product to a local authorized Yamaha Servicer or authorize return of the defective product to Yamaha for repair. If you are uncertain
as to whether a dealer has been authorized by Yamaha, please contact Yamaha’s Service Department at the number shown below, or
check Yamaha’s website at www.Yamaha.com. Product(s) shipped for service should be packed securely and must be
accompanied by a detailed explanation of the problem(s) requiring service, together with the original or a machine reproduction of
the bill of sale or other dated, proof-of-purchase document describing the product, as evidence of warranty coverage. Should any
product submitted for warranty service be found ineligible therefore, an estimate of repair cost will be furnished and the repair will be
accomplished only if requested by you and upon receipt of payment or acceptable arrangement for payment.
Limitation of Implied Warranties and Exclusion of Damages:
ANY IMPLIED WARRANTIES, INCLUDING
WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE SHALL BE LIMITED IN DURATION TO THE
APPLICABLE PERIOD OF TIME SET FORTH ABOVE. YAMAHA SHALL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR INCIDENTAL OR
CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES OR FOR DAMAGES BASED UPON INCONVENIENCE, LOSS OF USE, DAMAGE TO ANY OTHER
EQUIPMENT OR OTHER ITEMS AT THE SITE OF USE OR INTERRUPTION OF PERFORMANCES OR ANY CONSEQUENCES.
YAMAHA’S LIABILITY FOR ANY DEFECTIVE PRODUCT IS LIMITED TO REPAIR OR REPLACEMENT OF THE PRODUCT, AT
YAMAHA’S OPTION. SOME STATES DO NOT ALLOW LIMITATIONS ON HOW LONG AN IMPLIED WARRANTY LASTS OR THE
EXCLUSION OR LIMITATION OF INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES, SO THE ABOVE LIMITATION OR EXCLUSION MAY
NOT APPLY TO YOU. This Warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.
This is the only express warranty applicable to the product specified herein; Yamaha neither assumes nor authorizes anyone to
assume for it any other express warranty.
