OWNER'S MANUAL
Before using the Clavinova, be sure to read “PRECAUTIONS„ on pages 3-4.
IMPORTANT
—Check your power supply—
Make sure that your local AC mains voltage matches the voltage specified on the name plate on the bottom panel. In some areas
a voltage selector may be provided on the rear of the main keyboard unit near the power cord. Make sure that the voltage
selector is set for the voltage in your area. The voltage selector is set at 240V when the unit is initially shipped. To change the
setting use a "minus" screwdriver to rotate the selector dial so that the correct voltage appears next to the pointer on the panel.
For information on assembling the keyboard stand, refer to the instructions at the end of this manual.

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/Power cord
Water warning
• Only use the voltage specified as correct for the instrument. The required
voltage is printed on the name plate of the instrument.
• 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.
• Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may
have accumulated on it.
• Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.
• Use only the supplied power cord/plug.
• Do not place the power 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.
Fire warning
• Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit.
A burning item may fall over and cause a fire.
If you notice any abnormality
Do not open
• 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 power 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 electric 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:
Power supply/Power cord
Location
• 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.
• 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 connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a multipleconnector. Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or possibly cause
overheating in the outlet.
• 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.
• Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally
fall over.
Assembly
• Before moving the instrument, remove all connected cables.
• 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.
• When setting up the instrument, 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.
• Do not place the instrument against a wall (allow at least 3 cm/one-inch from
the wall), since this can cause inadequate air circulation, and possibly result in
the instrument overheating.

Connections
Using the bench (If included)
• 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
• 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.
• Only one person should sit on the bench at a time, in order to prevent the
possibility of accident or injury.
• In the case of a model which the height adjustable bench included, do not
attempt to adjust the bench height while sitting on the bench, since this can
cause excessive force to be imposed on the adjustment mechanism, possibly
resulting in damage to the mechanism or even injury.
• (For polish-finished model) Gently remove dust and dirt with a soft cloth. Do
not wipe too hard since small particles of dirt can scratch the instrument's
finish.
• When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry or slightly damp cloth. Do not
use paint thinners, solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping
cloths.
• If the bench screws become loose due to extensive long-term use, tighten them
periodically using the included tool.
Saving data
Handling caution
Saving and backing up your data
• Take care that the key cover does not pinch your fingers, and do not insert a
finger or hand in any gaps on the key cover or instrument.
• Never insert or drop paper, metallic, or other objects into the gaps on the key
cover, 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.
• Current data (page 43) is lost when you turn off the power to the instrument
before saving. Save the data to a USB storage device/external device such as a
computer.
Saved data may be lost due to malfunction or incorrect operation. Save
important data to a USB storage device/external device such as a computer.
• Do not place vinyl, plastic or rubber objects on the instrument, since this might
discolor the panel or keyboard.
• (For polish-finished model) Bumping the surface of the instrument with metal,
porcelain, or other hard objects can cause the finish to crack or peel. Use
caution.
• 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 operate the instrument 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.

Introduction
The Yamaha CLP-280/270 Clavinova offers unmatched sonic realism and exceptionally natural grand-piano type
playability, and features Yamaha’s original AWM Dynamic Stereo Sampling technology for rich, authentic, musical
voices.
The CLP-270 utilizes a GH3 (Graded Hammer 3) Keyboard that varies the key weight according to the key range,
while the CLP-280 boasts a Natural Wood Keyboard that enhances the GH3 features (including real-wood white
keys), to reproduce as closely as possible the experience of playing an actual acoustic grand piano.
Thanks to these two keyboard types, you can use performance techniques previously possible only on grand
pianos—such as playing the same note successively and having sounds blend smoothly even without use of the
damper pedal, or playing the same key quickly and having perfect articulation without the sound cutting off unnaturally. The remarkably authentic Grand Piano 1 voice on both instruments also features:
• Dynamic Sampling, using velocity-switched samples for extra realism;
• String Resonance (page 88), which recreates the rich resonance of piano strings;
• Sustain Sampling (page 88), which uses samples of the resonance of an acoustic grand piano’s soundboard and
strings made when the damper pedal is pressed; and
• Keyoff Samples, which add the subtle, characteristic sounds produced when keys are released.

once you understand the basic operations, you’ll find the instrument is very easy to use.
Press the button corresponding to the function you want to use.
The buttons are the means of entrance to the functions.
For example, when you want to change a voice, you simply press one of the voice group buttons on the right

Before Using the Clavinova
Turning the power on
1. Connect the power cable.
First insert the plug of the power cable into the AC connector on the Clavinova, then plug the other end of the cable
into the proper AC outlet on the wall.
In some areas a plug adaptor may be provided to match the pin configuration of the AC wall outlets in your area.

depending on locale.)
(rear panel)
WARNING!
Make sure your CLP-280/270 is rated for the AC voltage supplied in the area in which it is to be used (voltage rating appears on
the name plate on the bottom panel). In some areas, a voltage selector may be provided on the bottom panel of the main keyboard unit near the power cord. Make sure that the voltage selector is set for the voltage in your area. Connecting the unit to the
wrong AC supply can cause serious damage to the internal circuitry and may even pose a shock hazard!
Use only the AC power cord supplied with the CLP-280/270. If the supplied cord is lost or damaged and needs to be replaced,
contact your Yamaha dealer. The use of an inappropriate replacement can pose a fire and shock hazard!
The type of AC power cord provided with the CLP-280/270 may be different depending on the country in which it is purchased.
(In some areas a plug adaptor may be provided to match the pin configuration of the AC wall outlets in your area.) Do NOT modify the plug provided with the CLP-280/270. If the plug will not fit the outlet, have a proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
2. Turn on the power to the Clavinova.
Press the [POWER] switch located on the right of the keyboard to turn the power on.
• The screen located in the center of the front panel and the power indicator located below the left end of the keyboard lights up.
TIP

TIP
XG is a major enhancement of
the GM System level 1 format,
and was developed by Yamaha
specially to provide more
voices and variations, as well
as greater expressive control
over voices and effects, and to

Selecting and Playing Voices
Using the pedals
The Clavinova has three foot pedals: damper pedal (right), sostenuto
pedal (center), and soft pedal (left) that produce a range of expressive
effects similar to those produced by the pedals on an acoustic piano.
Basic Operation
Damper (right) pedal
When you press the damper pedal, the notes
you play have a longer sustain.
When you select Grand Piano 1, pressing the
damper pedal activates the instrument’s special
“Sustain Samples” to accurately recreate the
unique resonance of an acoustic grand piano’s
soundboard and strings. A “half-pedal” effect
lets you use the damper pedal to create partial
sustain effects, depending on how far down
you press the pedal.
TIP
When you press the damper
pedal here, the notes you
play before you release the
pedal have a longer sustain.
TIP
The threshold at which the Half
Pedal effect starts can be set
from the Half Pedal Point
parameter inthe Function menu
(page 87).
Sostenuto (center) pedal
If you play a note or chord on the keyboard
and press the sostenuto pedal while holding
the note(s), the notes will sustain as long as the
pedal is held. All subsequent notes will not
sustain.
TIP
When you press the sostenuto
pedal here while holding the
note(s), the notes will sustain
as long as you hold the pedal.
Soft pedal (left)
The soft pedal reduces the volume and slightly changes the timbre of notes
played while the pedal is pressed. (The soft pedal will not affect notes that are
already playing when it is pressed. Press the pedal immediately before you
play the target notes.)
With the Vibraphone, Jazz Organ and Mellow Organ voices, this pedal turns
vibrato on and off or toggles the speed of vibrato. (See page 87.)
26
CLP-280/270 Owner’s Manual
If the damper pedal doesn’t
work, or notes are sustained
even when the pedal is not
pressed, make sure that the
pedal cord is properly plugged
into the [PEDAL] jack on the
unit (see step 6 on page 112).
Also, make sure that the RPedalFunc parameter in the
“FUNCTION” menu is set to ON
(see page 85).
You can adjust the depth of the
resonance produced by the
“Sustain Samples” using the
Sustain Sampling Depth
parameter in the “FUNCTION”
menu. (See page 88.)
TIP
You can assign a function to
each pedal via the “RPedalFunc”, “CPedalFunc”, and
“LPedalFunc” parameters in the
“FUNCTION” menu. (See
page 85.)
TIP
The center and left pedals can
also be assigned to song start/
stop operation (PLAY/PAUSE
function) via the “PedalPlay/
Pause” parameter in the
“FUNCTION” menu (on
page 87).

Recording Your Performance
Basic Operation
This chapter explains how to record your performance using the Clavinova
recording function.
You can, for example, play back what you have played on the Clavinova keyboard for an effective practice aid. You can also record just the left-hand part,
then practice the right-hand part while playing back the recorded left-hand
part.
Since you can record up to sixteen parts separately, you could record the leftand right-hand parts separately, or record each part of a four-handed performance or ensemble song one by one to build a song.
TIP
You can record your performance (audio data) to a cassette tape recorder or other
recording devices via the AUX
OUT connector. (see page 59.)
TERMINOLOGY
Recording vs. Saving:
The format of performance data recorded on a cassette tape differs from that of data recorded on the Clavinova. A cassette tape records audio signals. On the other hand, the Clavinova “saves” information regarding note timing, voices, and
a tempo value, but not audio signals. When you play back recorded songs, the Clavinova produces sound based on the
saved information. Therefore, recording on the Clavinova may be more accurately called “saving information.” However,
this book often uses the word “recording” because it seems to make more sense.
A message (information or confirmation dialog) sometimes appears on the screen to facilitate operation.
Refer to the “Message List” on page 93 for an explanation of each message, appropriate actions to take, and
troubleshooting information.
Recording a New Song
There are two ways to record your performance: recording it quickly without specifying a recording part, or
recording several different parts to multiple parts. You can select whichever way best suits your purpose.
■ Recording a performance without specifying the recording part (page 35)
This convenient and simple recording method lets you quickly record your performance without specifying
the recording parts—useful, for example, in recording solo piano pieces.
In this way, the performance is automatically recorded to part 1 (right part).
■ Recording a performance of several different parts (page 39)
This lets you record the right, left and extra parts separately. Since you can record the left part while playing
back the right, this is useful for recording both parts of a duet. Since you can record up to sixteen parts separately, record the performance of each instrument part one by one and create fully orchestrated compositions.

TIP
Please note that the copy features are intended for your personal use only.
Clavinova memory
The Clavinova has the following three types of memory:
• Current memory:
This is a temporary memory area where you can temporarily place and edit
the currently-selected song before playback or recording.
• Preset song memory:
This read-only memory area saves 50 piano preset songs.
• Storage memory:
This memory area enables you to save recorded songs or song data loaded
from USB storage device.
When you select a song in the song select screen, it is loaded from Preset song
memory, Storage memory, or USB storage device, into Current memory.
You will use Current memory to play back and record songs. When you turn
off the power to the Clavinova, songs saved in Preset song memory and Storage memory are not erased. On the other hand, songs in Current memory are
lost. However, recorded songs are automatically saved to Storage memory
from Current memory.
In this manual, a song located in a song recorded in Current memory, is
referred to as a “Current song,” a song in Storage memory is a “Memory
song,” and a song on a USB storage device is an “External song.”

The three Quantize settings marked with asterisks (*) are
exceptionally convenient, since they allow you to quantize two
different note values at the same time. For example, when the
straight eighth notes and eighth notes triplet are contained in
the same part, if you quantize by the straight eighth notes, all
notes in the part are quantized to straight eighth notes—completely eliminating any triplet feel. However, if you use the
eighth note + eighth note triplet setting, both the straight and
triplet notes will be quantized correctly.
72
From this display, you can determine how strongly
the notes will be quantized. A setting of 100% produces exact timing. If a value less than 100% is
selected, notes will be moved toward the specified
quantization beats according to the specified percentage. Applying less than 100% quantization lets
you preserve some of the “human” feel in the
recording.

Spatial Effect is one type of the iAFC effect. Spatial
Effect creates a sense of reverberation and spaciousness by picking up the output sound using
internal microphones and output the sound from
the speaker on the rear of the instrument. The
spread and spaciousness of the sound is different
depending on the depth. For lower depth settings,
this creates the resonance and enhances the acoustic realism of the sound that is characteristic of
acoustic instruments by creating a virtual soundboard. For deeper depth settings, the sound of the
instrument itself and the sound of singing and
other instruments played nearby is picked up by
internal microphones, and processed to simulate
the spatial characteristics of performing together

entire song.)
The Clavinova’s Transpose function makes it possible to shift
the pitch of the entire keyboard up or down in semitone intervals to facilitate playing in difficult key signatures, and to let
you easily match the pitch of the keyboard to the range of a
singer or other instruments. For example, if you set the transposition amount to “5,” playing key C produces pitch F. In this
way, you can play the song as if it were in C major, and the
Clavinova will transpose it to the key of F.

scale.
PureMajor/PureMinor
Based on natural overtones, three major chords
using these scales produce a beautiful, pure
sound.
Pythagorean
This scale, designed by Pythagoras, a Greek philosopher, is based on the interval of a perfect
5th. The 3rd produces swells, but the 4th and
5th are beautiful and suitable for some leads.
MeanTone
This scale is an improvement of the
Pythagorean in that the swell of the 3rd has
been eliminated. It spread during the late 16th
century through the late 18th century. Handel
used this scale.
Werckmeister/Kirnberger
These scales combine Mean Tone and
Pythagorean in different ways. With these
scales, modulation changes the impression and
feel of the songs. They were often used in the
era of Bach and Beethoven. They are also often
used now to reproduce the music of that era on
harpsichords.

“Local Control On” is a state in which the
Clavinova produces the sound from its tone generator when you play the keyboard. In “Local Control Off ” state, the keyboard and the tone
generator are cut off from each other. This means
that even if you play the keyboard, the Clavinova
will not produce the sound. Instead, the keyboard
data can be transmitted via MIDI to a connected
MIDI device, which can produce the sound. The

Questions about Operations and
Functions
While you are using a function, some buttons not
used for the function are disabled. If the song is playing, stop the playback. Otherwise, press the [EXIT]
button to return to the main screen. Then, perform
the desired operation.
■ The sound sustains indefinitely and does not
decay when I press the sostenuto pedal.
With the voices in the CHURCH ORGAN, JAZZ
ORGAN, STRINGS, CHOIR group, or some voices
in the XG group, the sound continues sustaining
while you are holding down the sostenuto pedal.
■ Higher or lower notes does not sound correctly when the transpose or octave setting
is made.
The setting range for the transposition and octave
setting is C-2 - G8. (With the normal setting, the
Clavinova’s 88 keys covers the range of A-1 - C7.) If
the lowest key is set to a note lower than C-2, it will
produce a sound one octave higher. If the highest key
is set to a note higher than G8, it will produce a
sound one octave lower.
■ How can I return to the recording or song
select screen during song recording or playback?
Press the [SONG SELECT] button once.
■ The tempo does not change even though I
recorded with tempo changes.
Depending on the timing of tempo changes, the
changed tempo may not be recorded. In this case,
the recording will be played back at the original
tempo.
Make tempo changes when the recording part is
selected and a red part indicator is flashing. The
same trick applies to editing the tempo after recording.
■ Performance in Dual or Split mode is not
recorded.
■ Part data is lost unexpectedly.
For Dual or Split mode recording, the recording part
for the second voice (that is, the voice for the lefthand part) is automatically assigned (page 29).
Therefore, if the part already has data, the data will
be overwritten during recording. Also, switching to
Dual mode or Split mode in the middle of the song
is not recorded. Therefore, the notes you played with
the second voice (or the notes lower than the Split
point) are not recorded.
■ What type of data is recorded?
Detailed Settings
■ The buttons do not respond.
Data recorded in the parts:
• Note data (notes you play)
• Voice selection
• Clavinova pedals and external pedal on/off
• Reverb depth [ReverbSend]

Questions about Operations and Functions
■ How much data can I record?
• Current memory (page 46): About 300KB
• Storage memory (page 46): About 1,750KB
■ The on/off setting of the pedal connected to
the AUX PEDAL jack is reversed.
Some types of pedals may turn on and off in opposite fashion. Use the “AuxPedalType” parameter
(page 86) in the “FUNCTION” menu to change the
external pedal setting.
■ The song title is not correct.
Detailed Settings
The “CharacterCode” setting may be different than
that used when you named the song. Also, if the song
was recorded on another instrument, the title might
be displayed incorrectly. Use the “CharacterCode”
parameter (page 53) in the FILE/SONG SETTING
menu to change the setting. However, if the song was
recorded on another instrument, changing the
“CharacterCode” parameter setting may not resolve
the problem.
■ What is the difference between “TouchSense” and “TouchResponse” MIDI data?
“TouchSense” determines the manner and degree to
which the volume level changes in response to your
touch on the keyboard. The MIDI note-on velocity
data is not changed. It changes the volume level at
the same velocity data.
“TouchResponse” determines the touch sensitivity of
an instrument. The MIDI note-on velocity data is
changed when you play the keyboard with a consistent touch.
■ Only “PhraseMark” can be selected via the
[FILE/SONG SETTING] button during song
playback.
The “PhraseMark” parameter can only be set via the
[FILE/SONG SETTING] button during song playback. If you desired to select other parameters, stop
the song and try once again.

Data Compatibility
This section covers basic information on data compatibility: whether or not other MIDI devices can playback the
data recorded by CLP-280/270, and whether or not the CLP-280/270 can playback commercially available song data
or song data created for other instruments or on a computer.
Depending on the MIDI device or data characteristics, you may be able to play back the data without any problem,
or you may have to perform some special operations before the data can be played back. If you run into problems
playing back data, please refer to the information below.
Appendix
Basic Check Points
Voice Allocation Format
The data and the MIDI device must match in regards
to the items below.
• Sequence format
• Voice allocation format
• Disk Format (floppy disk drive is optional)
With MIDI, voices are assigned to specific numbers,
called “program numbers.” The numbering standard
(order of voice allocation) is referred to as the “voice
allocation format.”
Voices may not play back as expected unless the voice
allocation format of the song data matches that of the
compatible MIDI device used for playback.
Sequence Format
The CLP-280/270 is compatible with the following formats.
The system which records song data is called “sequence
format.”
Playback is only possible when the sequence format of
the disk matches that of the MIDI device.
■ GM System Level 1
The CLP-280/270 is compatible with the following formats.
This is one of the most common voice allocation formats.
Many MIDI devices are compatible with GM System
Level 1, as is most commercially available software.
■ GM System Level 2
■ SMF (Standard MIDI File)
This is the most common sequence format.
• Standard MIDI Files are generally available as one
of two types: Format 0 or Format 1.
• Many MIDI devices are compatible with Format
0, and most commercially available software is
recorded as Format 0.
• The CLP-280/270 is compatible with both Format
0 and Format 1.
• Performance data recorded on the CLP-280/270 is
saved in the SMF format 0.
■ ESEQ
This sequence format is compatible with many of
Yamaha’s MIDI devices, including the Clavinova series
instruments. This is a common format used with various
Yamaha software.
104
CLP-280/270 Owner’s Manual
“GM System Level 2” is a standard specification hat
enhances the original “GM System Level 1” and improves
song data compatibility. It provides for increased
polyphony, greater voice selection, expanded voice
parameters, and integrated effect processing.
■ XG
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.
Song data recorded on the CLP-280/270 using voices in
the XG category is XG-compatible.
Data Compatibility
■ DOC (Disk Orchestra Collection)
This voice allocation format is compatible with many of
Yamaha’s MIDI devices, including the Clavinova series
instruments.
This is also common format used with various Yamaha
software.
■ GS
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.
Appendix
Even if the devices and data used satisfy all the conditions above, the data may still not be completely compatible, depending on the specifications of the devices
and particular data recording methods.
Disk format
It is necessary to first configure the floppy disk to the
system of the device being used. This operation is
called “formatting.”
• There are two types of floppy disks: MF2DD (double sided, double density) and MF2HD (double
sided, high density), and each type has different formatting systems.
• Playback is only possible when the MIDI device to
be used is compatible with the format of the disk.

For models that feature
a voltage selector:
Set the voltage selector to an
appropriate voltage.
CLP-280/270: Keyboard Stand Assembly
Voltage Selector
Before connecting the AC power cord, check the setting
of the voltage selector which is provided in some areas. To
set the selector for 110V, 127V, 220V or 240V main voltages, use a “minus” screwdriver to rotate the selector dial
so that the correct voltage for your region appears next to
the pointer on the panel. The voltage selector is set at
240V when the unit is initially shipped.
After the proper voltage has been selected, connect the
AC power cord to the [AC INLET] and an AC wall outlet.
A plug adaptor may be also provided in some areas to
match the pin configuration of the AC wall outlets in
your area.
WARNING
An improper voltage setting can cause serious damage to
the Clavinova or result in improper operation.
Set the adjuster.
Rotate the adjuster until it comes in firm contact with the floor surface.
CAUTION
When moving the instrument after assembly, always
hold instrument by the lower surface in the front of the
main unit and by the handles in the rear panel.
Do not hold the key cover. Improper handling can
result in damage to the instrument or personal injury.
Appendix
9.
After completing the assembly, please check the
following.
• Are there any parts left over?
Review the assembly procedure and correct any errors.
• Is the Clavinova clear of doors and other movable fixtures?
Move the Clavinova to an appropriate location.
• Does the Clavinova make a rattling noise when you
shake it?
Tighten all screws.
• Does the pedal box rattle or give way when you step
on the pedals?
Turn the adjuster so that it is set firmly against the
floor.
• Is the power cord inserted securely into the socket?
Check the connection.
• If the main unit creaks or is otherwise unsteady when
you play on the keyboard, refer to the assembly diagrams and retighten all screws.
10.Attach the headphone hanger.
You can attach a headphone hanger on the
Clavinova to hang the headphones.
Install the headphone hanger using included
two screws (4 x 10mm) as shown in the figure.
Hold here.
Do not hold here.
After transporting the instrument, do the following to
ensure optimum performance of the iAFC function
(page 81):
• Place the Clavinova so that its rear panel is at least 10 cm
away from the wall.
• Perform the automatic adjustment of the iAFC function
(page 82).

Handling the Floppy Disk Drive (FDD) and
Floppy Disks (Optional)
An optional floppy disk drive can be installed to this
instrument. For instructions on installing the floppy disk
drive, see page 115.
The floppy disk drive lets you save original data you’ve created on the instrument to floppy disk, and allows you to load
data from floppy disk to the instrument.
Be sure to handle floppy disks and treat the disk drive with
care. Follow the important precautions below.
CAUTION
Do not remove the floppy disk or turn off the instrument itself
while the disk is being accessed.
Doing so may result not only in loss of data on the disk but also
damage to the floppy disk drive.
Floppy Disk Compatibility
• Be sure to remove the floppy disk from the disk drive
before turning off the power. A floppy disk left in the
drive for extended periods can easily pick up dust and dirt
that can cause data-read and -write errors.
• 3.5" 2DD and 2HD type floppy disks can be used.
Cleaning the Disk Drive Read/Write Head
Formatting a Floppy Disk
• Clean the read/write head regularly. This instrument
employs a precision magnetic read/write head which,
after an extended period of use, will pick up a layer of
magnetic particles from the disks used that will eventually
cause read and write errors.
• To maintain the disk drive in optimum working order
Yamaha recommends that you use a commercially-available dry-type head cleaning disk to clean the head about
once a month. Ask your Yamaha dealer about the availability of proper head cleaning disks.
• If you find that you are unable to use new, blank disks or
old disks that have been used with other devices, you may
need to format them. For details on how to format a disk,
see page 52. Keep in mind that all data on the disk will be
lost after formatting. Make sure to check beforehand
whether or not the disk contains important data.
Appendix
n
Floppy disks formatted on this device may or may not be useable as is on other devices.
Inserting/Removing Floppy Disks
Inserting a Floppy Disk into the Disk Drive:
Hold the disk so that the label of the disk is facing upward and
the sliding shutter is facing forward, towards the disk slot.
Carefully insert the disk into the slot, slowly pushing it all the
way in until it clicks into place and the eject button pops out.
n
Never insert anything but floppy disks into the disk drive.
Other objects may cause damage to the disk drive or floppy
disks.
Removing a Floppy Disk
• After checking that the instrument is not accessing* the
floppy disk (checking that the use lamp on the floppy disk
drive is off), firmly press the eject button at the upper
right of the disk slot all the way in.
When the floppy disk is ejected, pull it out of the drive. If
the floppy disk cannot be removed because it is stuck, do
not try to force it, but instead try pressing the eject button
again, or try re-inserting the disk and attempt to eject it
again.
* Access of the disk indicates an active operation, such as
recording, playback, or deletion of data.
If a floppy disk is inserted while the power is on, the disk
is automatically accessed, since the instrument checks
whether the disk has data.
About Floppy Disks
Handle floppy disks with care, and follow
these precautions:
• Do not place heavy objects on a disk or bend or apply
pressure to the disk in any way. Always keep floppy disks
in their protective cases when they are not in use.
• Do not expose the disk to direct sunlight, extremely high
or low temperatures, or excessive humidity, dust or liquids.
• Do not open the sliding shutter and touch the exposed
surface of the floppy disk inside.
• Do not expose the disk to magnetic fields, such as those
produced by televisions, speakers, motors, etc., since
magnetic fields can partially or completely erase data on
the disk, rendering it unreadable.
• Never use a floppy disk with a deformed shutter or housing.
• Do not attach anything other than the provided labels to
a floppy disk. Also make sure that labels are attached in
the proper location.
To Protect Your Data (Write-protect Tab):
• To prevent accidental erasure of important data, slide the
disk's write-protect tab to the “protect” position (tab open).
When saving data, make sure that the disk’s write-protect
tab is set to the “overwrite” position (tab closed).
