My Yamaha MM8 turns on, but produces no sound. I've reinitialized it and verified the LOCAL setting is ON. This is my primary instrument and I'm getting very worried. Thank you if you can help at all.

Since it is brand new, IMMEDIATELY exercise your warranty rights as the LCD will probably have to be replaced.

I have a Yamaha MM8. Why doesn't it power up even if it is plugged?

I'd suspect the power supply is dead (check it with an ohm meter), or that the internal fuse is blown (open it up and check).

Why does my yamaha mm8 doesn't have any sound? I try the headphones and there's no sound there either.

Assuming the volume is turned up, you can try initializing the keyboard (page 35 of the manual), but that will erase all stored backup data and reset to initial default settings. You might wantt to call Yamaha directly to discuss their suggestions. Here's their support link-

How can I fix a yamaha clavinova clp-152s that no longer produces a clean sound? The tones sound muffled to some degree.

It could have a capacitor failing in the amplifier section, or primary oscillator section. it might also be a failing output transistor on the amplifier. If the amplifier has gotten noiseir, suspect a faulty transistor.

I'm trying to midi from my mm8 into my mm6,but will not receive the midi signal,i went into utility ,and all the settings seem to be set right,what am i doing wrong?

I assume you have MIDI out MM8 cabled to MIDI in MM6?

You also have to setup the MIDI to be emitted by the MM8 and define the MIDI channel(s) to be used at both ends.

I assume you are sending note on/off, etc. information and not Sysex which MAY NOT be compatible between these units.
