I have this problem too and it got worsened over time. Have you found a solution yet ?

This is confusing... you say "the sustain works when you disconnect the cord"? How can that happen? and doesn't work when it is plugged in.

MOST sustain pedal problems are due to people using a different pedal than the keyboard is designed to use. It is very common that someone tries to use a Roland sustain pedal on a Yamaha and oof course it doesn't work because the Roland pedal is normally closed and Yamaha usually requires a normally open contact.

A FEW keyboards now check the state of the pedal input when power is first turned on and configure the pedal polarity accordingly. For these keyboards, make sure the pedal is plugged in before power is turned on.

You are probably trying to set the new pitch on the wrong octave. Try using the C above middle C as the center point.

Take a look at this page from the user manual.

Use the factory reset
Hold down highest white key whilst turning on
This should return to factory settings - pitch should now be back at A440
If you need to adjust then see page 19 of the user manual where it explains fine tuning.

Take it to a tech... What are you going to do to fix it, hit it with a big rock?

Haha yes - I know the feeling...fingers are nowhere near the keyboard the "BANG!" a note or a cluster of notes happens out of nowhere! :)

Easiest solution will be to take it in to our local Yamaha Dealer and have them clean the contacts. Dust and hair can get between the keys and cause all sorts of problems with the sensors/contacts.

I have learnt to clean them myself using a photographic blower brush, and if you're daring, give it a go. If not - don't risk it :)

Jesse, it sounds like the instrument has a defective power button.
If it still under warranty, contact the store where you purchased it. If the store is an authorized repair facility, they can take steps to fix it on their dime, or send it to Yamaha if needed.
If it's out of warranty you can replace it yourself if you're an experienced tech. If you're not, go into it knowing that you may damage all of the electronics. This will not be covered under the warranty.

Myself, I barely know an electron from a crayon. So if you're like me, find an audio repair tech, or a music store that works on electronics. Get a few hourly labour rates and an idea of their part prices. Then call around, get a few quotes- they may differ a bit.
Either way, you'll be able to turn it on, press the keys, make music. And that's the most important part.

You have set the transpose to +1. You need to reset the transpose function to zero or no transpose.

Have a professional tune it for you. It may be that some strings have loosened/tightened.

All I can suggest is try a master reset. It could be a software bug or a dried out electrolytic capacitor in the power supply.

This is bad and indicates a short between lines of the scanning matrix of the keys. Check if you also have trouble with F# and G. Thiss may be a connector that is displaced OR contamination such as a staple that has fallen into the works. Turn the unit upside down and slap your hand against it and see if it has same problem.

Most keyboards have fuses, and this could be the problem. If there is access to a fuse on the back panel, check to see if it is still good. If there is no fuse cap, then the internal power supply may have a blown fuse. If so, it's time to see a service tech...

You need to dry the water off before it corrodes any electrical connections, disconnect the power. Put the keyboard somewhere warm or it would be best to dismantle it and dry the water with a cloth.
