No sound from speakers
by: Dick Rector

Hi Sam,

First check there is noting connected to the headphone, (not by accident a footpedal connected in the wrong place?)that will disconnect the speakers.
ALSO clean this outlet if you can.

To check if your 'onboard' amplifiers and electronics are ok:
Connect the headphone outlet to an amplifier, any stereoset will do if it has an aux input. Or if you keyboard has a line out or aux out use that to connect.
Turn on keyboard FIRST than the amplifier.
If you play and you hear a normal sound from your stereo the keyboard is ok and the problem is the speakers. If you don't hear any sound the problem is more serious but in both cases you need a qualified person to have a look at it.

Hope this helps you to sort out the problem, let us know please.
Regards
Dick

Dead Speakers P 200
by: Alfred

Dear Sam: Do as Dick recommends. In addition, check the Jack (Aperturew in the Unit where you normally connect Headphones). It is designed to automatically cut off the main soeakers when headphones are inserted, and it may be stuck in the cut-off position.

How to reset a Yamaha P-200

by Jennifer
(Chicago)

My P-200 has stopped making sound, and I believe that my 2-year pushed buttons, causing this problem. The manual is packed away somewhere in storage, and I'm desperate to try to figure out what is wrong so that I can continue teaching lessons!!
Does anyone know how to reset a P-200 or one similar? Or know how I can find out? My online searches have not been helpful.
Thanks!

Check the back of the keyboard. Make sure that the speaker switch is clicked to "on."

Had the same problem myself after moving the keyboard.

Yamaha P200 and step up transformer.
by: Mantius

To operate your Yamaha P200 keyboard, you would need what is called a "step-up transformer". A "step-up transformer" allows a device that requires a high voltage power supply to operate from a lower voltage source. The transformer takes in the low voltage at a high current and puts out the high voltage at a low current.

changing your keyboard internally..
by: Anonymous

I had the opposite problem. Brought a Nord Electro from the States to Amsterdam. I have bought a converter as well. But they told me in the shop it is very easy to change your keyboard internally. It is just a matter of opening it and changing one little part which is responsible for the voltage on which it runs. Iam not a geek, but I could have done it easily. So I am not going to explain it here, but if you go to a good shop I am sure they can tell you. It is worth considering if you plan to stay there and don't want the annoying hassle of always bringing extra converters etc to gigs.

Keyboard losing touch sensitivity on Yamaha P200

by Kevin OConnell
(Chicago, IL)

Middle C, in particular, would play at full volume when only pressed gently, so I suspected a problem with the pad or sensor.

I was able to fix this myself by opening up the cover with the 4 screws underneath. The cover is on hinges and swings open. The keyboard then can be detached by removing the dozen or so screws running along the top of the keyboard assembly. Be careful of the blue wires that attach the printed circuit boards underneath to the main module. Move the blue wires from under the plastic tab to free up the keyboard, and then turn the keyboard over, and you will be able to remove the printed circuit boards with another dozen or so screws. They go into tabs on the bottom, and tip forward to press the rubber pads between the key action and circuit board sensors. Removing the circuit boards will allow you to take out the rows of rubber pads and clean them off. Once you dust and clean them, carefully put them back, after getting the circuit board in place under its tabs - you can align the rubber pads with the holes and keys while the boards are tipped away, resting under their tabs. Carefully put back the screws, but only halfway, being sure not to damage the circuit boards. Tighten the rest of the way after putting them in halfway. Put everything back in reverse, and voila.. the problem disappears (hopefully!). If this does not fix the problem, it may be the electronics or a defective rubber pad.

My wives P200 has not worked in months and had no idea how to fix it. Gave up several months ago and there it sat.
Today I came across your reset for the P220. That is all it took to fix it. Thanks so much.

Yamaha P250 Sound not coming thru Speakers

Sound to external speakers will cut out when I'm playing. If I bang on keys sound will come and go. Sounds like a short in connection somewhere. If I use headphones they work fine. Without them, in the middle of a song, you will hear click & no sound to External Speakers. Someone said it may be a bad headphone plug. Is this something I can fix?

What's everyone's symptoms?
by: Anonymous

Hi everyone -- no good news yet.

I brought my p250 into a Yamaha service location after my speakers were failing just about every time. I could not for the life of me get it to fail when I brought it in though -- this is the worst diagnostic nightmare of all time. He looked at it anyway and said that he could find nothing that was obviously wrong. He said that he could replace some of the internal boards but couldn't guarantee which one might be at fault.

What is everyone's specific problem? Maybe between the bunch of us and all our symptoms/circumstances we can narrow the problem down. I, for instance, thought it might have something to do with the mono-output jack, as I think somebody bumbed into it on a gig and made the conection a little loose. I also find that when the speakers go out (with the click) sometimes if I play really loudly (hammering the keys) they sometimes come back on (even if only for a second). Anyone else share these symptoms or have anything else to add?

Cheers.

Yamaha Digital Piano Gone Silent
by: Nayana

Hi, We have a Yamaha Digital Piano P-85/85s. Its worked beautifully for 18 months. Suddenly since yesterday, there's no sound when turned on. It comes on, there is a click and that's all. I tried to toggle the Local Control On/Of mechanism as described in the manual (Holding down the Demo and Metronome buttons, press the C6 key. No success. The piano has gone silent. Really not sure what to do here in Mumbai!

Finally got it fixed
by: Bob

I had the same problem that all of you were experiencing. It got to the point that my piano was hadly every playing out loud. I had a service guy look at it and it was a problem with some bolts coming loose. He had to do some soddering and the piano is as good as new. It only cost me $116.00 to repair. I believe that most of this was for labor. No parts needed.

Yamaha P200 -input volume control

Is it possible to adjust the input volume level via a control on the Yamaha P200's front panel? I currently have my Mac plugged in to the input connection on the back in order to use the onboard speakers for monitoring but I can only control the volume level through the mac itself; I would like to be able to adjust the input volume level that comes through the speakers via the P200 rather than the Mac itself-can anyone help?

Any information would be gratefully appreciated.

Cheers

Dear Stu: I'm not familiar with set-ups with Macs, but if your P 200 has a FUNCTION control, accessing its various Volume levels may inlude one that allows you to do what you want. Good luck. Please let us knoww if this suggestion helps. Thanks.

Resetting your P200
by: Alfred

Dear "Anonymous": You say the unit is not givng sny sound at all. It is possible(?)that Initializing might return it to working condition, and there are three methods you can try. Reset[a] Unless Settings have been Stored in Memory, simply turning the Unit OFF will erase them.(It takes effect if the Unit is turned ON, played,then turned OFF). Reset[b] Turning the
Unit OFF, then holding down the last White key while turning the Unit ON again. Erases memory. Reset[c] “Factory” reset is done by turning the Unit OFF, and then holding down the last White Key plus last three Black keys while turning the Unit ON again. Everything,including MIDI info will be erased. If these reset procedures do not restore your unit to playing condition, I recommend you contact a qualified professional for help. Please post a follow-up message in the Forum so others can learn from your experience, and please don't forget to identify yourself (first name will do)so we can contact you if we have questions. Good luck and thanks.

P 200 Reset

Dear Anonymous: Following-up on my earlier comment, also check the Headphone Jack for locked position which automatically cuts off sound to the main speakers. That Jack could be oxidized/ shorting, preventing any sound reproduction. Let the Forum know how you make out. Thanks and good luck.

Yamaha P-200 keyboard no sound

by dave
(concord mass)

My son dropped the foot pedal while playing and now there is NO sound from the keyboard. I suspect that this has broken the jack connection. The speaker will play sound with the "demo songs" fine, so this is pointing that he cracked the internal connection.

I dont have headphones to plug in to try. Any thoughts here?
thanks

Yamaha P 200 Input Jacks
by: Alfred

Dear Dave: I'm not familiuar with your keyboard, and offer these comments for informational purposes only. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO OPEN THE UNIT. I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND REPAIR BY A QUALIFIED TECHNICIAN.
1) Normally, there is a rear panel PEDAL JACK into which one plugs either a Sustain or Volume Pedal.
2) Then there is a SEPARATE HEADPHONE JACK for headphones (PHONES/OUTPUT) and if used, it automatically cuts off the unit's Speakers.
As the Speakers reproduce "Demos", it is an indication that the end Amplifier works, and the HEADPHONE JACK has not been damaged in any way.
I do not know if damage to the Pedal Jack can result in the problem you are having.
Do us the favor of advising what steps you may take to repair the damage. Thanks.

Thank you so much for the info about re-initialising the keyboard.

may qualify for a keybed replacement
by: Anonymous

Your particular unit may qualify for a keybed replacement through Yamaha. Certain units used a bad lubricant and caused keys to stick. As a result Yamaha will replace the keybed plus labor for free. You would have to provide them the serial number for your unit and if that serial number qualifies they will arrange with you to bring it to an authorized repair facility. You can reach them at (714)522-9011 and ask for technical assistance then provide them the serial number. Good Luck!

Yamaha will replace the keyboard assembly if you have proof of purchase and if the serial number falls within the guidelines. Labor is no longer covered under warranty.

Hi, From time to time my P-200 will change what sound was chosen, the volume pedal will stop working, the lights will change and it will be unplayable for a few seconds.

In addition, I had created a few custom performances and they all disappeared after a couple of weeks.
