Dear Client,

I am sorry to hear about that problem. My name is***** and I am a tech expert with 19 years of experience.

I know that kind of issue with the CVP models from several other clients that I have been working with. Unfortunately, it almost always is a damaged D/A converter or a damaged OP-amp on the PCB, both of which cannot be easily exchanged if you do not have the parts and know exactly what you are doing, as you need to resolder them to the PCB. In your case, I would highly recommend contacting the nearest Yamaha shop to get this repaired by going here:
