Will a midi interface allow me to play downloaded music on a yamaha clainova 305
Yes, with some preparation. The music will have to be in a standard MIDI file format or a format that results in standard MIDI over USB output when "played" by computer software or an external sequencer. Within the software you will probably need to create a new "instrument" if there is not already a template for the CVP 305, otherwise the tracks and sub channels in the MIDI file will be patched to GM, probably not what you want to hear.

Yamaha Piaggero NP12 all "A" and "Eflat" keys are dead.
If all A & Eb are dead it would point to either a bad connection between the keyboard circuit and the motherboard ( ribbon cable ) or possible diode problems on the keyboard PCB.
Initially open up and check connections are all tight and correct.
Did this just happen or has the keyboard been opened up?

Yamaha psr4000 no sound when i play keys
To start with try a master reset, whilst the instrument is off press and hold the top (highest) sounding key whilst turning on.
When the screen displays Yamaha release the top key.
If this doesn't solve the issue then it could be a number of things as the keyboard does a self check on startup and will hang if a fault is found. Check each rubber switch is not stuck down or even missing this can cause this issue. Please report back either way.
