I have a major problem with my CVP 407 just when I am in the middle of a important and big keyboard job!!!

When I use styles and play with my left hand I am getting a bass of C no matter what chord I play even in single fingered mode!!

So when I play C I get C but when I play G I get G/C, Ab I get Ab/C etc they all have the same C bass note. This happens in all modes apart from A1 Full keyboard!!

Is there a setting that might have been pressed by my sons who use the piano!!

Does anyone know how to reset the piano to factory setting that might cue the problem.

Please , Please help I need to play the pianio!!!

I believe the Yamaha factory reset command can be triggered by holding down the top key while turning the power on.

Good luck!

Kind regards,
