General Guide
The liquid crystal panel of the monitor screen uses
high-precision technology that provides a pixel yield in
excess of 99.99%. This means that some very small
number of pixels may not light or may remain lit at all
times. This is due to the characteristics of the liquid
crystal panel, and does not indicate malfunction.
Your Digital Piano lets you save its current settings,
and lock its buttons to protect against operation errors.
For details, see “Auto Resume” (page EN-75) and
“Operation Lock” (page EN-74).
Perform the following procedure when you want to
return the Digital Piano’s stored data and settings to
their initial factory defaults.
1. Turn off the Digital Piano.
2. While holding down the cm TEMPO w, q
buttons, press the 1 P button.
• The Digital Piano will turn on and initialize its
internal system. You will be able to use the Digital
Piano in a short while.
• See “Turning Power On or Off” (page EN-7) for
information about turning power on and off.

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.
• Never connect the AC adaptor (JEITA Standard,
with unified polarity plug) that comes with this Digital
Piano to any other device besides this Digital 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.
• Use the AC adaptor so its label surface is pointed
downwards. The AC adaptor becomes prone to
emitting electromagnetic waves when the label
surface is facing upwards.
1. Press the 1 P button to turn on power.
• Do not touch the keyboard, pedals, or buttons while
the startup screen is on the display. Doing so will
cause malfunction.
• Use the Digital Piano’s VOLUME controller (2) to
adjust the volume.
2. To turn off the Digital Piano, hold down the
1 P button until the Digital Piano’s display
goes blank.
• The message shown below may appear while data is
being saved to Digital Piano memory or immediately
after you turn on the Digital Piano.
Never turn off Digital Piano power while this
message is displayed.
• Pressing the 1 P button to turn off power actually
puts the Digital Piano into a standby state. Minute
amounts of current continue to flow within the
Digital Piano in the standby state. If you do not plan
to use the Digital Piano for a long time or if there is a
lightning storm in your area, be sure to unplug the
AC adaptor from the power outlet.

Connections
• Before connecting headphones, be sure to use the
Digital Piano’s 2 VOLUME controller to turn the
volume down to a low level. After connecting, you
can adjust the volume to the level you want.
• While sound output from the speakers is disabled,*
the Digital Piano automatically optimizes sound for
headphones and LINE OUT listening. During
speaker output, it automatically switches to
optimization for listening with speakers.
* Plug inserted into the PHONES jack or “Speaker”
SYSTEM SETTING Screen (page EN-74) turned
off.
Front
Connect commercially available headphones to the
PHONES jacks. Connecting headphones to either of
the PHONES jacks 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.
• 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.
The back of the Digital Piano has two pedal jacks, one
for a damper pedal and one for a soft/sostenuto pedal.
Depending on the type of operation you want the
pedal to perform, connect the pedal’s cable either to the
Digital Piano’s DAMPER PEDAL jack or
ASSIGNABLE PEDAL jack.
Back
Pedal Functions
z Damper Pedal
Pressing the damper pedal while playing will cause the
notes you play to reverberate.
• Whenever a piano tone is selected, pressing this
pedal will activate the Digital Piano’s Damper
Resonance effect, which causes notes to resonate in
the same way they do when the damper pedal on an
acoustic piano is pressed.
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 of the keys that are depressed when this
pedal is pressed are sustained, even if the keyboard
keys are released, until the pedal is released.

• Use a commercially available expression pedal that
meets the specifications below.* Note that the
polarity of the pedals of some manufacturers is
different from the polarity required by this Digital
Piano.
* Operation has been verified for the pedals below.

FATAR VP-25, VP-26
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.
• The optionally available CS-67P special stand is
required in order to use the SP-33 Pedal Unit.
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.
• While sound output from the speakers is disabled,*
the Digital Piano automatically optimizes sound for
headphones and LINE OUT listening. During
speaker output, it automatically switches to
optimization for listening with speakers.
* Plug inserted into the PHONES jack or “Speaker”

• Whenever connecting a device 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.
• Whenever you connect any device to the Digital
Piano, be sure to read the user documentation that

An external source connected to LINE IN R (right) is
output from the Digital Piano’s right speaker, while a
source connected to LINE IN L/MONO is output from
the left speaker. Use commercially available connection
cords that match the equipment being connected to.
When an external source is connected to LINE IN L/
MONO only, the input is output from both speakers.
You can connect a smartphone or other music player to
AUDIO IN.
Use the AUDIO VOLUME knob to adjust the volume
level from a smartphone. Volume from a smartphone
cannot be adjusted using the 2 VOLUME knob.
• Digital Piano built-in effects (reverb, chorus, DSP)
are also applied to LINE IN terminal input. LINE IN
input can be recorded with the Audio Recorder.
• Digital Piano built-in effects (reverb, chorus, DSP)
are not applied to AUDIO IN terminal input.
AUDIO IN input cannot be recorded with the
Audio Recorder.
Use commercially available cables to connect the
external audio equipment to the Digital Piano’s
LINE OUT jacks as shown in Figure 2. LINE OUT R
jack output is right channel sound, while LINE OUT
L/MONO jack output is left channel sound. It is up to
you to purchase connecting cables like the ones shown
in the illustration for connection of audio equipment.
Normally in this configuration you must set the audio
equipment’s input selector to the setting that specifies
the terminal (such as AUX IN) to which the Digital
Piano is connected. Use the Digital Piano’s VOLUME
controller to adjust the volume level.
Use commercially available cables to connect the
amplifier to the Digital Piano’s LINE OUT jacks as
shown in Figure 3. LINE OUT R jack output is right
channel sound, while LINE OUT L/MONO jack
output is left channel sound. Connecting to the
LINE OUT L/MONO jack only outputs a mixture of
both channels. It is up to you to purchase a connecting
cable like the one shown in the illustration for
connection of the amplifier. Use the Digital Piano’s
VOLUME controller to adjust the volume level.
• When using the LINE OUT jack, insert a plug or turn
off the “Speaker” setting on the SYSTEM SETTING
Screen (page EN-74). This will switch to a timbre
suitable for line out.
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.

Using Auto Accompaniment
With Auto Accompaniment, simply select the
accompaniment rhythm you want and the matching
accompaniment (drums, guitar, etc.) will play
automatically when you play a chord with your left
hand. It’s like having your own personal backup group
along with you wherever you go.
This Digital Piano has 220 built-in Auto
Accompaniment patterns, which are divided into 13
groups. You can edit built-in rhythms to create your
own original rhythms (called “user rhythms”), which
you can save in a 14th group. Refer to the separate
Appendix for details.
1. On the screen, touch bq MAIN.
This displays the MAIN screen.
2. Touch the “Rhythm” rhythm name.
3. Touch the group that contains the rhythm you
want to use.

■ Timing Setting and Chord Progression Playback
This section explains how chord progressions are played in accordance with the “Timing Set” settings in step 2
under “To change how an Auto Accompaniment is played” (page EN-49). Note that this setting affects playback
only. It does not change the chord progression data.
z Normal
Plays chords at the same timing as the recording.
z Half
Plays chords measure-by-measure at a timing that is half that of the recording.
Example:
The following shows what happens when the “Half” setting is used to play back a user preset that was created
based on a music preset whose rhythm is a 4/4 time.
Half Playback when a 4/4 time rhythm is assigned to the user preset
Half Playback when a 2/4 time rhythm is assigned to the user preset
z Double
Plays chords measure-by-measure at a timing that is double that of the recording.
Playing back a chord progression like that shown for “Half” above while “Double” is specified results in the
progression shown below.
