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 (PA-3B, PA-3C or an equivalent recommended by
Yamaha) 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 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.
• Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.
Fire warning
• 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 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.
• 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
• 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 attempt to recharge batteries that are not intended to be charged.
Power supply/AC power adaptor
• When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold

PSR-E203/YPT-200 Owner’s Manual
• 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.
1/2
• Before moving the instrument, remove all connected adaptor and other cables.
• 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.
Connections
• Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off the
power for all components. Also, before turning the power on or off, be sure to
set the volume of each component (where applicable) to minimum and
gradually raise the volume while playing the instrument until the desired
listening level is reached.
Maintenance
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.
• 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 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.
• When cleaning the instrument, use a soft, dry cloth. Do not use paint thinners,
solvents, cleaning fluids, or chemical-impregnated wiping cloths.
Yamaha cannot be held responsible for damage caused by improper use or modifications to the instrument.
Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use.
When using a power adaptor, even when the power 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 AC power adaptor from the wall AC outlet.
Make sure to discard used batteries according to local regulations.

Setting Up
Be sure to do the following operations BEFORE turning on the power.
Power Requirements
Although the instrument will run either from an optional AC adaptor or batteries, Yamaha recommends use of an
AC adaptor whenever possible. An AC adaptor is more environmentally friendly than batteries and does not
deplete resources.
■ Using an AC Power Adaptor
q Make sure that the power of the instrument is off
(display is blank, except for notation staff).
WARNING
• Use ONLY a Yamaha PA-3B or PA-3C AC Power Adaptor (or other adaptor specifically recommended by
Yamaha) to power your instrument from the AC mains.
The use of other adaptors may result in irreparable
damage to both the adaptor and the instrument.
w Connect the AC adaptor (PA-3B, PA-3C or other
adaptor specifically recommended by Yamaha) to
the power supply jack.
e Plug the AC adaptor into an AC outlet.
CAUTION
• Unplug the AC Power Adaptor when not using the
instrument, or during electrical storms.
For battery operation the instrument requires six
1.5V “AA” size, LR6 or equivalent batteries. (Alkaline batteries are recommended.) When battery
power becomes too low for proper operation, the
volume may be reduced, the sound may be distorted, and other problems may occur. When this
happens, make sure to replace all batteries, following the precautions listed below.
w
e
PA-3B or
PA-3C
AC outlet
■ Using Batteries
q Open the battery compartment cover located on the
instrument’s bottom panel.
w Insert the six new alkaline batteries, being careful
to follow the polarity markings on the side of the
compartment.
e Replace the compartment cover, making sure that it
locks firmly in place.
CAUTION
• Never connect or disconnect the AC power adaptor when
the power is on and the batteries are installed. Doing so
will turn the power off.
8
PSR-E203/YPT-200 Owner’s Manual
CAUTION
• Use alkaline batteries for this instrument. Other types of
batteries (including rechargeable batteries) may have
sudden drops of power when battery power becomes low.
• Make sure to install the batteries with the proper orientation, maintaining the correct polarity (as shown). Incorrect battery installation may result in heat, fire and/or
leaking of corrosive chemicals.
• When the batteries run down, replace them with a complete set of six new batteries. NEVER mix old and new
batteries. Do not use different kinds of batteries (e.g.
alkaline and manganese) at the same time.
• 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.
Setting Up
Make all necessary connections BEFORE turning the power on.
Using the MIDI Terminals
Connecting headphones (PHONES/OUTPUT Jack)
The PSR-E203/YPT-200 speakers are automatically
shut off when a plug is inserted into this jack. The
PHONES/OUTPUT jack also functions as an external
output.
You can connect the PHONES/OUTPUT jack to a
keyboard amplifier, stereo system, mixer, tape
recorder, or other line-level audio device to send the
instrument’s output signal to that device.
WARNING
other MIDI instrument
The instrument also features MIDI terminals, allowing you to interface the instrument with other MIDI
instruments or computers. (For more information, see
page 50.)
NOTE
• MIDI cables (sold separately) must be used for connecting to
MIDI devices. They can be bought at music stores, etc.
• Avoid listening with the headphones at high volume for
long periods of time; doing so may not only result in ear
fatigue, it may be damaging to your hearing.
Turn on the power
CAUTION
• To prevent damage to the speakers, set the volume of the
external devices at the minimum setting and turn power
off the devices before connecting them. Failure to
observe these precautions may result in electric shock or
equipment damage. Also, be sure to set the volumes of
external devices at their minimum levels and gradually
raise the volume controls while playing the instrument to
set the desired listening level.
Press the [STANDBY/ON] switch to turn on the
power. Pressing the switch again turns the power off.
When you first turn on the power, make sure to turn
down the volume of the instrument by pressing the
MASTER VOLUME [-] button several times. While
playing the keyboard, adjust the volume level by using
the MASTER VOLUME [+] and [-] buttons.
Connecting a footswitch (SUSTAIN Jack)
All panel settings as well as the settings made via the
display are reset to their default values whenever the
power is turned off.
The sustain function lets you produce a natural sustain
as you play by pressing an optional footswitch. Plug
the Yamaha FC4 or FC5 footswitch into this jack and
use it to switch sustain on and off.
NOTE
• Make sure that the footswitch plug is properly connected to
the SUSTAIN jack before turning on the power.
CAUTION
• When using a power adaptor, even when the power is off,
a small amount of electricity is still being consumed by
the instrument. When you are not using the instrument for
a long time, make sure to unplug the AC power adaptor
from the wall AC outlet, and/or remove the batteries from
the instrument.
• Do not press the footswitch while turning the power on. Doing
this changes the recognized polarity of the footswitch, resulting in reversed footswitch operation.

■ About chords
Playing two or more notes together simultaneously creates a “chord.”
Playing a note together with two other notes spaced three notes (steps) apart—such as the
notes C, E and G—creates a harmonious sound. Chords like these are called “triads” and
they play an important role in most music.
3rd
Root
3rd
Taking the chord above as an example, the lowest note of this triad is called the “root note.” This is the central note
sound, and it supports or anchors the rest of the notes chord.
You’ll notice that the middle note of the chord above (E) is the third step in the succession of scale notes—C, D, then E.
There are two types of “thirds” in chords: major thirds and minor thirds.
Major third—four half steps from the root
Minor third—three half steps from the root
We’ll also alter the top note of our original chord and make three additional chords, as shown below. (The captions indicate the intervals between each of the notes.)
◆ Major chord

◆ Augmented chord
Cm
Major 3rd

◆ Diminished chord
C aug
Minor 3rd

C dim
Major 3rd
Minor 3rd
Minor 3rd
The basic characteristics of the chord sound are same, no matter if we change the order of the notes from bottom to top,
or if we add other same name notes in different octaves. Beautiful sounding harmonies can be built in this manner, and
emotional music can be created by playing different chords one after the other according to commonly accepted rules.
Harmony determines the nature of chords, and music is created based on harmony.
● Chord names
From the chord name, you can tell at a glance what type of chord it is and which notes
make up the chord. Understanding the basic structure of chords is very useful—once
you’re familiar with this, you’ll be quickly and easily play chords by looking at the
names that appear above the notation.

About MIDI
■ MIDI settings
These settings should be made when transmitting/receiving performance
data to a connected MIDI device or computer.
Local Settings
Local Control determines whether or not notes played on the instrument
are sounded by its internal tone generator system; the internal tone generator is active when local control is on, and inactive when local control is off.
On ........ This is the normal setting in which notes played on the instrument’s keyboard are sounded by the internal tone generator
system. Data received via the instrument’s MIDI terminal
will also be played by the internal tone generator.
Off ....... With this setting the instrument itself produces no sound
(keyboard performance, or Style playback), but the performance data is transmitted via the MIDI terminal. Data
received via the instrument’s MIDI terminal will also be
played by the internal tone generator.
You can set the Local Control in the Function Settings (page 49).
NOTE
• If you can’t get any sound
out of the instrument, Local
Control may be the most
likely cause. Playing the
keyboard results in no
sound when Local is set to
OFF.
External Clock Settings
These settings determine whether the instrument is synchronized to its own
internal clock (OFF), or to a clock signal from an external device (ON).
On......... The instrument’s time based functions will be synchronized
to the clock from an external device connected to the MIDI
terminal.
Off ........ The instrument uses its own internal clock (default).
You can set the External Clock in the Function Settings (page 49).
PSR-E203/YPT-200 Panel Setting Transmission (Initial Send)
Sends the PSR-E203/YPT-200 panel settings to an external MIDI device.
When recording a PSR-E203/YPT-200 performance to an external
sequencer or similar equipment, you can use this function to send the current PSR-E203/YPT-200 panel settings so that when the sequence is played
back the original panel settings are automatically restored.
You can set Initial Send in the Function settings (page 49).

NOTE
• If External Clock is ON and
no clock signal is being
received from an external
device, the Song, Style, and
metronome functions will
not start.
Voice List
■ Maximum Polyphony • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
NOTE
The instrument has 32-note maximum polyphony. This means that
it can play a maximum of up to 32 notes at once, regardless of
what functions are used. Auto accompaniment uses a number of
the available notes, so when auto accompaniment is used the total
number of available notes for playing on the keyboard is correspondingly reduced. The same applies to the Song functions. If the
maximum polyphony is exceeded, earlier played notes will be cut
off and the most recent notes have priority (last note priority).
• The Voice List includes MIDI program
change numbers for each voice. Use these
program change numbers when playing the
instrument via MIDI from an external device.
• Program Numbers 001 to 128 directly relate
to MIDI Program Change Numbers 000 to
127. That is, Program Numbers and Program
Change Numbers differ by a value of 1.
Remember to take this into consideration.
• Some voices may sound continuously or
have a long decay after the notes have been
released while the sustain pedal (footswitch)
is held.

Drum Kit List
• “
” indicates that the drum sound is the same as “Standard Kit”.
• Each percussion voice uses one note.
• The MIDI Note # and Note are actually one octave lower than keyboard Note # and Note. For example, in
“Standard Kit”, the “Seq Click H” (Note# 36/Note C1) corresponds to (Note# 24/Note C0).
• Key Off: Keys marked “O” stop sounding the instant they are released.
• Voices with the same Alternate Note Number (*1 … 4) cannot be played simultaneously. (They are designed
to be played alternately with each other.)

MIDI Data Format
NOTE:
1 By default (factory settings) the instrument ordinarily functions as a 16-channel multi-timbral tone generator, and
incoming data does not affect the panel voices or panel settings. However, the MIDI messages listed below do affect
the panel voices, auto accompaniment, and songs.
• MIDI Master Tuning
• System exclusive messages for changing the Reverb
Type.
2 Messages for these control change numbers cannot be
transmitted from the instrument itself. However, they may
be transmitted when playing the accompaniment, song.
3 Exclusive
<GM System ON> F0H, 7EH, 7FH, 09H, 01H, F7H
• This message automatically restores all default settings
for the instrument, with the exception of MIDI Master
Tuning.
<MIDI Master Volume> F0H, 7FH, 7FH, 04H, 01H, ll, mm,
F7H
• This message allows the volume of all channels to be
changed simultaneously (Universal System Exclusive).
• The values of “mm” is used for MIDI Master Volume.
(Values for “ll” are ignored.)
<Reverb Type> F0H, 43H, 1nH, 4CH, 02H, 01H, 00H,
mmH, llH, F7H
• mm : Reverb Type MSB
• ll : Reverb Type LSB
Refer to the Effect Map (page 60) for details.
4 When the accompaniment is started, an FAH message is
transmitted. When accompaniment is stopped, an FCH
message is transmitted.When the clock is set to External,
both FAH (accompaniment start) and FCH (accompaniment stop) are recognized.
5 Local ON/OFF
<Local ON> Bn, 7A, 7F
<Local OFF> Bn, 7A, 00
Value for “n” is ignored.
6 Since this keyboard does not have touch response, the
level of the sound does not change in response to your
playing strength. As a result, when you play the keyboard,
the velocity value transmitted via MIDI is fixed (set to the
most suitable value for each Voice).
However, the velocity of the accompaniment and song playback does change in response to performance data
received via MIDI.
<MIDI Master Tuning> F0H, 43H, 1nH, 27H, 30H, 00H,
00H, mm, ll, cc, F7H
• This message simultaneously changes the tuning value
of all channels.
• The values of “mm” and “ll” are used for MIDI Master
Tuning.
• The default value of “mm” and “ll” are 08H and 00H,
respectively. Any values can be used for “n” and “cc.”
■ Effect map • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • •
* When a Type LSB value is received that corresponds to no effect type, a value corresponding to the effect type (coming the closest to the specified value) is automatically set.
* The numbers in parentheses in front of the Effect Type names correspond to the number
indicated in the display.

Troubleshooting
Problem
Possible Cause and Solution
When the instrument is turned on or off, a
popping sound is temporarily produced.
This is normal and indicates that the instrument is receiving electrical
power.
When using a mobile phone, noise is produced.
Using a mobile phone in close proximity to the instrument may produce
interference. To prevent this, turn off the mobile phone or use it further
away from the instrument.
There is no sound even when the keyboard is
played or when a Song or Style is being
played back.
Check that nothing is connected to the PHONES/OUTPUT jack on the
rear panel. When a set of headphones is plugged into this jack, no sound
is output.
Check the Local Control on/off. (See page 52.)
Playing keys in the right hand area of the
keyboard does not produce any sound.
When using the Dictionary function (page 46), the keys in the right hand
area are used only for entering the chord root and type.
• The volume is too soft.
• The sound quality is poor.
• The rhythm stops unexpectedly or will not
play.
• The Song, etc. does not play correctly.
The batteries are low or dead. Replace all six batteries with completely
new ones, or use the optional AC adaptor.
The Style or Song does not play back when
the [START/STOP] button is pressed.
Is External Clock set to ON? Make sure External Clock is set to OFF;
refer to “External Clock Settings” on page 52.
Make sure that the Style Volume (page 43) is set to an appropriate level.
The Style does not sound properly.
Is the Split Point set at an appropriate key for the cords you are playing?
Set the Split Point at an appropriate key (page 36).
Is the “ACMP ON” indicator showing in the display? If it is not showing
press the [ACMP ON/OFF] button so that it does show.
No rhythm accompaniment plays when the
[START/STOP] button is pressed after
selecting Style number 093-100 (Pianist).
This is not a malfunction. Style number 093-100 (Pianist) have no
rhythm parts, so no rhythm will play. The other parts will begin playing
when you play a chord in the accompaniment range of the keyboard if
auto accompaniment is turned on.
Not all of the voices seem to sound, or the
sound seems to be cut off.
The instrument is polyphonic up to a maximum of 32 notes. If a style or
Song is playing back at the same time, some notes/sounds may be omitted (or “stolen”) from the accompaniment or Song.
The footswitch (for sustain) seems to produce the opposite effect. For example, pressing the footswitch cuts off the sound and
releasing it sustains the sounds.
The polarity of the footswitch is reversed. Make sure that the footswitch
plug is properly connected to the SUSTAIN jack before turning on the
power.
The ACMP ON indicator does not appear
when the [ACMP ON/OFF] button is pressed.
Always press the [STYLE] button first when you are going to use any
style-related function.
The part indications, such as Right, Left and
Both Hands, do not appear—even when
pressing the [R] or [L] buttons for the Lesson.
Make sure that you are not pressing the [R] or [L] buttons while the Song
is playing. If you press one of the part buttons while playing the Song
and before starting the Lesson, these buttons serve to mute the corresponding Song tracks. Stop the Song first, then select the desired part
and start the Lesson.
Regardless of how strongly play the keys, the
level of the sound does not change.
Since this keyboard does not have touch response, the level of the
sound does not change in response to your playing strength.
