E-4 Power Outlet Your digital piano runs on standard household power. Be sure to turn off power whenever you are not using the digital piano. Use only the AC adaptor (JEITA Standard, with unified polarity plug) that comes with this digital piano. Use of a different type of AC adaptor can cause malfunction of the digital piano. Specified AC Adaptor: AD-A12150LW • Use the supplied power cord to connect the AC adaptor as shown in the illustration below. Note the following important precautions to avoid damage to the power cord. During Use • Never pull on the cord with excessive force. • Never repeatedly pull on the cord. • Never twist the cord at the base of the plug or connector. During Movement • Before moving the digital piano, be sure to unplug the AC adaptor from the power outlet. During Storage • Loop and bundle the power cord, but never wind it around the AC adaptor. IMPORTANT! • Never connect the AC adaptor (JEITA Standard, with unified polarity plug) that comes with this digital piano to any other device besides this piano. Doing so creates the risk of malfunction. • Make sure the digital piano is turned off before plugging in or unplugging the AC adaptor. • The AC adaptor will become warm to the touch after very long use. This is normal and does not indicate malfunction. 1. Press the P (POWER) button to turn on digital piano power. • This causes the P (POWER) button to light. • When you turn on the digital piano, it performs a power up operation in order to initialize its system.

E-6 Connections IMPORTANT! • Whenever connecting something to the digital piano, first use the VOLUME controller to set the volume to a low level. After connecting, you can adjust the volume to the level you want. Connecting headphones to either of the PHONES jack cuts off output to the speakers, which means you can practice even late at night without bothering others. To protect your hearing, make sure that you do not set the volume level too high when using headphones. NOTE • Be sure to push the headphones plug into the PHONES jacks as far as it will go. If you don’t, you may hear sound from only one side of the headphones. • If the plug of the headphones you are using does not match the PHONES jacks, use the applicable commercially available adaptor plug. • If you are using headphones that require an adaptor plug, make sure you do not leave the adaptor plugged in when you unplug the headphones. If you do, nothing will sound from the speakers when you play. You can connect audio equipment or a music amplifier to the digital piano and then play through external speakers for more powerful volume and better sound quality. Connecting Audio Equipment (Figure 1) Use commercially available connecting cords (Standard Plug × 1, Pin Plugs × 2) to connect as shown in Figure 1. Make sure that the end of the cord that you connect to the digital piano is a stereo standard plug. A monaural standard plug will result in output of only one of the two stereo channels. Normally, you should set the input selector of the audio equipment to the terminal where the digital piano is connected (AUX IN, etc.) Adjust volume using the digital piano’s VOLUME controller. Connecting a Music Amplifier (Figure 2) Connect the connecting cord* to one of the types of amplifiers shown in Figure 2. Adjust volume using the digital piano’s VOLUME controller. Connecting Headphones Stereo standard plug PHONES jacks Back Connecting Audio Equipment or an Amplifier * Digital Piano: Stereo standard plug Amplifier : Inputs signals for the left and right channels. Not connecting either plug will result in output of only one of the two stereo channels.

English Connections E-7 Connecting the supplied pedal (SP-3) to the DAMPER PEDAL jack makes it possible to use the pedal as a damper pedal. Pressing the damper pedal while playing will cause the notes you play to reverberate for a long time. • When a GRAND PIANO tone (CONCERT, MODERN, CLASSIC, MELLOW, BRIGHT) is selected as the tone, pressing this pedal will cause notes to reverberate just like the damper pedal on an acoustic grand piano. Pedal Connector You can connect the optionally available 3-Pedal Unit (SP-33) to the pedal connector on the bottom of the digital piano. You can then use the pedals for expression that is similar to that available on an acoustic piano. SP-33 Pedal Functions z Damper Pedal In addition to the damper pedal functions described in the column to the left, the SP-33 pedal also supports half-pedal operation, so pressing the pedal part way applies only a partial damper effect. z Soft Pedal Pressing this pedal suppresses notes played on the keyboard after the pedal was pressed, and makes them sound softer. z Sostenuto Pedal Only the notes that are played while this pedal are depressed are sustained until the pedal is released. NOTE • The optional CS-67P stand is required in order to use the SP-33 Pedal Unit. Use only accessories that are specified for use with this digital piano. Use of unauthorized accessories creates the risk of fire, electric shock, and personal injury.

Turn off the digital piano and then exit the music software on your computer. Next, turn the digital piano back on and then restart the music software on your computer. It takes a long time before I can use the Digital Piano after I turn it on. Digital Piano memory data was corrupted because a data transfer operation with a computer was in progress the last time you turned off the piano. When this happens, the Digital Piano performs a memory format operation the next time you turn it on. You cannot perform any other operation while a format operation is in progress. It takes about 20 seconds after you turn on power to perform the memory format operation. Wait until the format operation is complete. Note that you should take care to avoid turning off the Digital Piano while a data transfer operation with a computer is in progress. ) E-26 A tone’s quality and volume sounds slightly different depending where it is played on the keyboard. This is an unavoidable result of the digital sampling process,* and does not indicate malfunction. * Multiple digital samples are taken for the low range, middle range, and high range of the original musical instrument. Because of this, there may be very slight differences in tonal quality and volume between sample ranges. When I press a button, the note that is sounding cuts out momentarily or there is a slight change in how effects are applied. This happens when the sounds of multiple parts are sounding at the same time while using layer, using the Duet Mode, playing back a built-in tune, recording, etc. Pressing a button when one of these conditions exists will cause the effect setting that is built into the tone to change automatically, which causes notes to cut out momentarily or causes a slight change in how effects are being applied.
