The Yamaha P-200 keyboard is a described on Yamaha's website as of January 2011 as an "88-key, Graded Hammer Effect Digital Piano." The P-200 digital piano has been discontinued, but is available online or in stores where used musical instruments are bought and sold. As with any complicated electronic device, the keyboard may not always function exactly as you think it should. Here are some basic issues associated with this keyboard and their solutions. A full owner's manual for the P-200 is available on Yamaha's website.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Check if the problem is associated with the P-200 piano itself or with a connected device or cable. Disconnect all external devices and try using the keyboard by itself. If the presence of a specific device or accessory is causing problems with the P-200, then the problem is with that device and not with the P-200. It may be that the device is simply not compatible with the P-200.

  2. 2

    Try changing the voices and performances on the P-200 if there is a problem with sound. If the problem only occurs in one voice or performance mode, you have probably just changed the parameters of that specific mode. Use the edit buttons to enter "Edit" mode and change the parameters; full instructions on editing specific voice parameters can be found in the owner's manual.

  3. 3

    Check the speaker switch on the rear of the P-200 to make sure it is set to the "On" position. Check that the volume is turned up if no sound is produced. If a foot controller is connected and set to volume or expression, make sure it is pressed down. Make sure "Local Control" is set to the "On" position by pressing the "Edit" button and entering edit mode 5. To enter "Edit" mode, press the edit button. The LED light above the button for the currently selected edit mode will flash (these are the same buttons that are used for the voices). Press the button for the edit mode you wish to enter, which in this case is edit mode 5.

  4. 4

    Check the keyboard sensitivity if it seems like too little sound is being produced. Settings for keyboard sensitivity are available in edit mode 11; see Step 3 for entering edit modes. Use the "Page" button to select the edit function page within the "Keyboard Sensitivity" menu until you see the "Keyboard Range" page. The values here determine minimum and maximum volume range of the keyboard between 1 and 128. If the maximum volume is set very low, you will not hear much sound from the keyboard.

  5. 5

    Check the manual for the P-200 for a full list of issues and solutions. This manual is available on the Yamaha website. If you are still unable to solve the problem on your own, contact Yamaha's support services or the store from which you purchased the keyboard. You can also check Yamaha's website for a list of support centres in your area.
