For YDP-164, YDP-144, YDP-S54
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 adaptor
Water warning

do not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, or place heavy objects on
it.
• 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 40) only. Using the wrong adaptor can result in
damage to the instrument or overheating.
• Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet
conditions, or place on it any containers (such as vases, bottles or glasses)
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

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:
Power supply/AC adaptor
Handling 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.
• When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold
the plug itself and not the cord. Pulling by the cord can damage it.
• Remove the electric plug from the outlet when the instrument is not to be used for
extended periods of time, or during electrical storms.
Assembly
• Do not insert a finger or hand in any gaps on the key cover or instrument. Also
take care that the key cover does not pinch your finger.
• Never insert or drop paper, metallic, or other objects into the gaps on the key
cover, panel or keyboard. This could cause physical injury to you or others,
damage to the instrument or other property, or operational failure.
• (YDP-S54) Do not apply excessive force when closing the key cover. A key cover
equipped with the SOFT-CLOSE™ mechanism closes the cover slowly. Applying
excessive force to the key cover when closing it could damage the SOFTCLOSE™ mechanism, and possibly result in injury to your hands and fingers
caught under the closing key cover.
• 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.
• Read carefully the attached documentation explaining the assembly process.
Failure to assemble the instrument in the proper sequence might result in
damage to the instrument or even injury.
• (YDP-S54) Be sure to attach the anti-fall brackets to the instrument, to ensure
stability. Failure to do so might result in damage to the instrument or even injury.
• 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.
Location
Using the bench (If included)
• Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally
fall over.
• When transporting or moving the instrument, always use two or more people.
Attempting to lift the instrument by yourself may damage your back, result in
other injury, or cause damage to the instrument itself.
• Do not place the bench in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall
over.
• Do not play carelessly with or stand on the bench. Using it as a tool or stepladder
or for any other purpose might result in accident or injury.
• Before moving the instrument, remove all connected cables, to prevent damage
to the cables or injury to anyone who might trip over them.
• 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.
• Only one person should sit on the bench at a time, in order to prevent the
possibility of accident or injury.
• If the bench screws become loose due to extensive long-term use, tighten them
periodically using the specified tool in order to prevent the possibility of accident
or injury.
• Keep special watch over any small children so that they don’t fall off the rear of
the bench. Since the bench does not have a backrest, unsupervised use may
result in accident or injury.
Connections
• 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.
• 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.
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 [ ] (Standby/On) switch is in standby status (power lamp is off),
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
power cord from the wall AC outlet.
The model number, serial number, power requirements, etc., may be found on
or near the name plate, which is at the bottom of the unit. You should note this
serial number in the space provided below and retain this manual as a permanent record of your purchase to aid identification in the event of theft.

Using the Pedals
Damper Pedal (Right)
Pressing this pedal will sustain notes longer.
Releasing this pedal immediately stops (damps)
any sustained notes. This pedal also features a
“half-pedal” function that creates partial sustain
effects, depending on how far down you press the
pedal.
NOTE
If the damper pedal doesn’t
work, make sure that the pedal
cord is properly plugged into
the main unit (page 39).
Half-pedal function
When you press the damper
pedal here, this note and the
notes you play before you release
the pedal sustain longer.
Sostenuto Pedal (Center)
Pressing this pedal while holding the notes will
sustain the pressed notes (as if the Damper Pedal
had been pressed), but all subsequently played
notes will not be sustained. This makes it possible
to sustain a chord or single low note, for example,
while the other notes are played “staccato.”
This function allows you to vary
the sustain length depending
on how far the pedal is
pressed. The farther down you
press the pedal, the more the
sound sustains. For example, if
you press the damper pedal
and all notes you are playing
sound a bit murky and loud
with too much sustain, you can
release the pedal half way or
higher to decrease the sustain
(murkiness).
NOTE
When you press the sostenuto
pedal here while holding the
note, the note will sustain as
long as you hold the pedal.
Soft Pedal (Left)
While the sostenuto pedal is
held, the organ and strings
Voices sound continuously
without decay after the notes
have been released.
NOTE
Pressing this pedal will reduce the volume and slightly change the timbre of the
notes. The notes played before this pedal is pressed are not affected.
When Jazz Organ Voice
(page 20) is selected,
pressing the left pedal
switches between fast/slow
rotation of the rotary speaker.
When the Vibraphone Voice
(page 20) is selected, the left
pedal switches Vibrato on and
off.
Using the Damper Resonance
The Damper Resonance effect simulates the sustain sound of the damper pedal on a grand piano, as if you
were pressing the damper pedal and playing the keyboard. This effect is applied only to the Piano Voices
(page 20).
To turn on the Damper Resonance:

Appendix
Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
Power suddenly and unexpectedly turns off.
This is normal and the Auto Power Off function may have been activated
(page 15). If desired, disable the Auto Power Off function.
The instrument does not turn on.
The plugs are not properly connected. Make sure that the DC plug is
securely inserted into the DC IN jack on the instrument, and that the AC
plug is securely inserted to the AC outlet (page 14).
A click or pop is heard when the power is
turned on or off.
This is normal when electrical current is being applied to the instrument.
Noise is heard from the speakers or
headphones.
The noise may be due to interference caused by the use of a mobile phone
in close proximity to this instrument. Turn off the mobile phone, or move it
further away from this instrument.
Noise is heard from the instrument’s speakers or
headphones when using the instrument with a
smart device, such as an iPhone/iPad.
When you use the instrument along with the application on your smart
device, we recommend that you set “Airplane Mode” to “ON” on your smart
device in order to avoid noise caused by communication. While Bluetooth
is connected, setting “Airplane Mode” to “ON” disconnects Bluetooth;
however, the connection can be restored by reconnecting again.
The Master Volume is set too low. Set it to an appropriate level using the
[MASTER VOLUME] knob (page 11).
The overall volume is low, or no sound is heard.
Make sure a pair of headphones or conversion adaptor is not connected to
the [PHONES] jack (page 15).
The Speaker setting is “Off.” Set the Speaker to “Normal” or “On” (page 15).
Make sure that Local Control is On. For details, refer to the “MIDI
Reference” (page 9).

Pedals do not function.
The pedal cord may not be securely connected to the [TO PEDAL] jack. Be
sure to insert the pedal cord all the way until the metal part of the cord plug
disappears from view (pages 36, 39).
The damper pedal does not function as
expected.
The damper pedal was pressed when the power was turned on. This is not
a malfunction; release the pedal and press it again to reset the function.
