hi i have no sound at all on my yamaha clavinova 209 keyboard. It was working perfectly well, the I switched in on and nothing!
Hello, my name is Rusty. Are you able to hear sound from the headphones?

Hi no we can not
Ok, that can be a couple of different things. One, it could be due to your midi local setting is turned off. That will allow the audio to come out of the piano, rather than a sequencer.
Check the menu settings for the Midi Local command. Set it to 'On'.
Also, you can try a factory reset by holding the top key down and turning the keyboard on. This will drain any static in the processor, and will give it a fresh start. Please tell me the results.

Please tell us how to turn midi on. Also when you say hold top key and turn on, are you referring to keyboard key? I e top c? If so, have already tried that.
Press function, select Midi, select all parts, press the number 8 up arrow, go to local control and set it to on.
However, you did hold the C7 and powered it up, which is the reset procedure. I think there may be something else going on. Does the demo song play?

Local control seems to be on. Demo does not play. Other ideas?
Go into your utility menu, and let's do the factory reset the long way. Something isn't right. Your demo songs come from a different board than your tone generator, so it is appearing that the amplifiers are not working. It's unlikely that both your main outs and headphones went out at the same time.
In your utility menu, refer to page 151 in the manual here:
Be sure to do the factory reset, and tell me the results.

Hi no joy tried resset and still no sound :(

There is a fault, and if the reset didn't work, it's going to have to go to the shop. I'm sorry we couldn't fix it, it really needs a professional with the right tools. I can find you an authorized Clavinova repair shop, what is your postal code?
