Yamaha P-140/P-140S operating instructions

(Yokosuka, Japan)

I purchased this P-140/P-140S Yamaha keyboard in Japan, and, unfortunately, the use instructions are only in Japanese. How can I get an operator's manual in English?

Yamaha P140: RCA outputs impedance and voltage level?

The P140 specifications list the RCA jacks as
"AUX Out (L, R)".

What is the minimum impedance they can deliver
into and what signal level will they deliver into
it?

P140 Aux Out
by: Gregav2

I can't tell you the impedance these outputs will drive, but I have used them to go into an input in my Roland KC60 and they are fine. However, I have been frustrated by the fixed level on these outputs. I've gone through a mixer to get a volume control but that is clumsy. I made a very simple modification that solves the problem. I took the keyboard cover off, drilled a hole in the back and mounted a stereo panel mount jack just below the rca aux out jacks. I ran the three wires over to the printed circuit board that the headphone jacks are mounted to and soldered the wires to the appropriate three connections on the circuit board. I plug in my mono 1/4' jack and go directly into my amp. It works great. Since there is no mini plug in the headphone jack, the built-ins work as well and the volume control, controls both volumes.

Yamaha p-140 strange sound

by Bobby
(Drummondville)

Hi, first I am sorry for bad english, it isn't my first language :)

About 6 months ago, I had to order a new piece (300$) on my yamaha p-140 (don't remember the name of it) because my sustain pedal wasn't working anymore. It first began with my p-140 making a little annoying sound whenever it was on. It was like someone whispering in the ear, like ''pshhhhhhhhhhhhhh''.

Everything went fine for 5 months or so but the little sound is now back... I'm afraid that my sustain pedal will not work anymore and I can't afford 300$ on a piano that cost like 900... Anyone had this problem?

big thx

by: Alfred

Dear Bobby: I'm guessing you are in Canada, right?
You do not say if the part you ordered was installed by a qualified technician. If it was so, I suggest you contact that individual and enquire 1) what part he replaced, and 2) does he have another one he would be willing to install at a sepecial rate as you are an "old customer".
There may be other members of this Forum who have had the same problem, and maybe they can offer additional advice. The following address may be of help..............

P 140 Strange Sound
by: Alfred

Dear Bobby: A recent post by another member prompts me to ask if while you are playing, you have any other EXTERNAL ELECTRICAL MOTORIZED appliance turned on. Sometimetimes our sense of heraring can be fooled into thinking that the sounsd is from the keyboard speakers and not ferom an external source which is sending unwanted frequencies. If my question is valid, try playing the keyboard with no external appliance turned on. Good luck.

Key Cleaning: Yamaha P140

by Jeff
(Atlanta, GA)

Recently, at a gig, a drink was spilled on the keyboard of my P140. Two problems occured, 1. The lower keys are kinda sticking together while playing one note, a result of the sticky liquor and 2. middle D is sounding at full volume no matter how softly the key is depressed. I have the keybed fully removed from the rest of the unit at this time, but I cannot figure out how to remove keys individually for cleaning. Any help in key removal would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks,
Jeff

Key Cleaning: Yamaha P140
by: Alfred

Dear Jeff: 1) I understand that removal of keys INDIVIDUALLY for cleaning is not an unsurmountable task, and probably within your skills,but I have a suggestion. You say the spilled drink was a sticky liquor and I'm wondering if it would not be better for you to leave the keys alone, and instead clean each one
(by pressing down on its neighbor) and lightly swabbing with a Q Tip dampened in warm (not hot)
water mixed with a mild detergent. The pivot points of the keys probably have not been affected because of the factory lubricant and you don't want to disturb that part. Let the keys dry when you have finished, then gently daub their perimeters lightly with talcum applied with a small dry (water color brush). 2) As to the middle D, it is an indication that some of the liquor got to the rubber underlay pads, and you will have to get to them for a good cleaning. See my post Feb 09, 2010 "Opening the Yamaha PSR 273 - Replacing/Cleaning Underlay Pads". Link to Yamaha Keyboard Forum Guidelines and Positive Suggestions. Good luck.

Yamaha P 140 Power Supply
by: Anonymous

Dear Alan: I am not familiar with the P 140, but I am guessing that it does not have a Battery Compartment, and if it does, it would not be designed for the 'garden variety' cells available.
The Yamaha site here in the US indicates that the Power Adaptor is the PA 5 B or C. Keep in mind I'm talking about an adaptor which accepts 110 VAC and has a DC OUTPUT of 12 Vdc !.5 Amp. You will have to use an adaptor which accepts 220 VAC with a DC OUTPUT of 12 Vdc 1,5 Amp. Adaptors are usually plugged into the rear panel of the unit and are in essence battery eliminators.
To be sure you acquire the correct Adaptor, contact: Yamaha Music U.K. Ltd.
Sherbourne Drive, Tilbrook, Milton Keynes, MK7 8BL, U.K.
Tel: (44) 1908-366700 Fax: (44) 1908-368872
The reason for the contact is that Yamaha MAY use a different code of Adaptors in your area. IF THEY CANNOT HELP YOU, the solution would be to step down the 220 VAC in the UK to 110 VAC by using a transformer BETWEEN your Wall Outlet and the Adaptor, and plugging the Adaptor into the transformer, and thence to the keyboard. Hope this helps. Holler through a follow-up post in this Forum if further is needed.

RE Power socket
by: ALan Riley

Thanks Alfred, I am living on a narrowboat and wanted to save domestic power usage by using an external 12 volt battery instead of running from the 220 VAC. I have a power unit but do not know the exact size of the socket. Thanks for the phone number I will giove them a call.

P 140 Power Supply
by: Alfred

Dear Alan: Thanks for reply. You will want to be aware of the AMPERAGE which the battery puts out. I'm not sure, but I believe the P 140 may draw only whatever it needs, without any danger of an "overdraw". Be sure to bring up this point when you speak to Yamaha Music UK as sound reproduction can be affected if amperage is out of "tolerance range". Good luck.

Yamaha P-140 model is not powering off

by Bruno
(Brazil)

There are 2 years I have this piano. I never had any problem with it. Today, I was playing and, when I shut it down, it turned on again. I tried at least 10 times and it was impossible to turn the power off. I had to pull the wire of the eletric energy. After this, I connect the wire again and the piano started by itself.
It was on.

Somebody know what to do? I was looking for something related and I saw that some people are pressing C7 when the piano is started.
I will do that. But... someone already had this problem?

Thanks a lot friends.

Prezado Bruno: Voce nao diz si seu teclado esta sendo usado com Adaptador (110 Ac reduzido a voltagem dc). Caso sim, e possivel que o Adaptador esta defeituoso, e o remedio e substituicao! Tambem pode ser a tomada no teclado que esta suja ou distorcida. Limpe e cuidadosamente ajuste os contactos internos.
Para informacoes adicionais, voce sempre tem:

Si minhas sugestoes valem, e favor colocar nova mensagem para alertar outros socios deste Forum.
Um abraco e muita sorte. (Desculpe meu Portugues. Deixei Brasil em 1963!).

Brief translation: Could be Adaptor if using one.
Could be Jack in Unit. Contact S.Paulo office for further problems if not those mentioned.
