No damping of G5 trough C7 Keys on Yamaha p85 digital piano
by Rodrigo A Panepucci
(Ribeirão Preto, São Paulo, Brasil)
I just bought a Yamaha p85 digital piano. I noticed that there is no damping effect in any of the keys from G5 trough C7. All other keys (from A1 trough F#5) are working well (sound is damped when key is released). I dont know if these keys shoudn´t have this dampening effect or if this is a deffect in my piano. Please help me !

Yamaha P-85 "on" button is suddenly not working
After a few months of light use, our Yamaha P-85 "on" button has stopped working. The light blinks and fades away within a second or two when you touch the button. So, we can't use it all. Has this happened to anyone else?

Brand new Digital Piano Yamaha P-85 doesn't turn on...
When my new P-85 Yamaha was brought home, I plugged it in and was able to play for a few minutes. But then while playing it suddenly just turned off by itself and won't turn back on again. I then started to worry and try to find a way for troubleshooting from the manual and checked the AC adaptor as well. At the AC power adaptor, it says that the input should be 120v - 1.5A. The standard outlets in my apartment are 220v. I don't seem to get it to work. I then plugged it in again on a voltage surge protector and it still doesn't turn on. Please help me find a solution to this. It's a special gift that was given to me for Christmas.. I hope I didn't do any damage to it.

Does the P-85 Yamaha keyboard have a fuse or circuit breaker?
We purchased this keyboard in the USA and then moved back to the UK. My Mom decided to plug the keyboard straight into the UK mains electricity using only an adaptor, no transformer. Obviously UK mains are 250 volts, and USA is 110. We wondered if the keyboard had a fuse, so we can replace it as it will have blown up, or if not, the keyboard is destroyed.
So does the Yamaha P-85 have a fuse??
Yamaha PF 85 stopped working...repair possible?
I have had this piano- Yamaha PF 85- for like 10 years. It has been sitting at my parents house for like 3 years...I finally went and picked it up. It worked for like a week, but it obviously developed some issues, as 4 of the keys on the far left had stopped working. Also, when I would adjust the volume, the speakers would make a scratchy noise. Anyways i think it got left 'on' for a couple of days, but i don't think that would hurt it. Okay, so yesterday I turned it on and the light comes on, but NO sound comes out of it when I play! It basically just happened overnight! CAN THIS BE FIXED? ( I had it fixed once when i first bought it b/c the keys were putting out different volumes...and it cost me about $100 bucks...so i am hoping i can just get it fixed again!)
Is there a technical manual available for the Yamaha pf 85?
Some keys are sticking or rubbing on my Yamaha pf 85, and I would like to go into the keyboard to try and address the key issues. It would be great to have a technical manual. Thank you. - Jon
Yamaha P85 warble
(Saint George, UT, USA)
In Grand Piano I setting, sometimes it sounds like a real piano, sometimes it has a tinny 'warble' sound (best I can describe it.) There doesn't seem to be any consistent way to determine when it will do it. I've tried changing the voice to something else and back, unplugging the piano completely and plugging it back in, shutting it down, leaving it on - it seems to happen intermittently.
It doesn't sound good, when I'm trying to play something nice, that's for sure - and it's very distracting.
I don't know - this is a refurb unit, which normally would be a better do because it's had human hands on it. I probably will have to send it back to get it fixed, but I'd like to make sure the issue is reproducible, some way, first.
Yamaha P85 and MIDI-USB interface
by Carlos CC
I've got a MIDI-USB interface to connect my Yamaha P85 to my laptop. The instalation was easy and both connectors (midi-in and midi-out) runs fine - I just install some free software to test both MIDI ways-.
Then I played a single piece to test the record feature, and I notice that when I use my Yahama as OUTPUT sound device, everything is good, incluind tempo, pitch and chords. But, when I play my MIDI using in my laptop speakers, the sound is just bad... really bad... it seams that is a piece played in a toy.
Now, I understand that the laptop sound card has major importance on that, so my question is: what is the best software to play MIDI files and/or to convert it to MP3 without loosing quality?
Thanks in advance,

Yamaha P-85 makes noise when volume turned off
I don't know if this is my unit or all units. But plug headphones into your p85 and turn the volume all the way down. When you play the keyboard there is a faint distorted sound produced based on the key pressed. The reason it bothers me is that I can hear it mixed in with the normal sound when sustained notes are played.
Just trying to determine if I need to contact Yamaha.

Yamaha P 85 power problem
My power jack doesn't want to work. It doesn't appear bent. Two cords show the same problem. So far I've eventually got the piano to turn on, but the problem is quickly getting worse every time I unplug it.
Yamaha P-85 Only Right Channel Working
I have a Yamaha p-85. Only the right speaker is working. This is the same for the headphones. Is there any way to fix this. I think I may be missing half the sound quality as I think this is stereo sampling.
Yamaha P85 Patches not working
(New York, NY, United States)
I have a yamaha P85. The first five piano patch buttons are working, but the second five are not (Organ 2, strings, harpsichords, and vibraphone). When I push them there is no patch change. Is there a hard/factor reset or something going on or does it need to be serviced? I searched through the manual and online for info but couldn't find anything. Thanks.
Yamaha P85 keys making a 'clicking' noise....
For about 1 3/4 years I own a Yamaha P85 now, and I'm very happy with the piano, but after about 6 months some of the keys (6 keys) started to make a 'clicking' noise...
(It is just like the keys are a bit loose and tap against something (a kind of 'plastic-tapping-noise' ))
Often I used the headphones to avoid hearing these 'clicks', but because I use the midi-out most of the time now, and I have a good pair of monitors, I would like to play without them... (and then this 'clicking' is really annoying)
Now my question is whether this 'clicking' is normal for this piano after 1 3/4 year of use....? (Although it actually started after 6 months)
Or should I contact my reseller?
I really hope this is not normal, because then I have to buy a new piano very soon, and I did actually expect a yamaha piano to last some time...
And to be honest really love its response, so I hope I don't have to buy a new one soon! :)

Yamaha PF 85 - How to Refurbish Sticky Keys
by James Panduro
(Swanage, Dorset. UK)
I have had my Yamaha PF 85 for approx 17 yrs. It was an ex-display keyboard. (few minor scratches and chipped key edges)
I didn't particularly notice for some time, but there where (are) a few sticky keys.
Have got worse over the last few years (not played that often), especially Bb3. Others have also started to exhibit the same fault. i.e. playing fine, but not returing fully to the up position (and in many cases not at all!)
I'm quite confident in doing the work myself, but once I had access to the key(s) I found there was no physical damage to either the key or the counterbalance weight underneath.
Same goes for the leaf springs.
Thought it was the lubricant/grease,(that was evident) getting contaminated and causing it to stick down.
Is there a particular lubricant that must be used, or does this problem qualify for the "keyboard replacements" that has been mentioned on this forum, concerning other Yamaha keyboards.
It almost seems like the leaf spring is just not man-enough for the task. Will "return" the counter-balance fine, but can't cope with the added weight of the key.
The keyboard is obviously old, so I don't really wan't to spend a lot of money getting it looked at if it's only a question of the right cleaner/lubricant OR "keyboard replacement".
any help with this long saga would be much appreciated!

Faulty Power Supply for Yamaha P-85
How do you know if you have a faulty power supply for the P-85 keyboard. When I plug it in the back of the keyboard the power no longer comes on when I press the power button on the left top side of the keyboard. If I wiggle the rear connection it toggles but never comes on solid any longer? Is this an indication of a bad power supply or the keyboard (power connection)on the back of the keyboard?
