IMPORTANT
—Check your power supply—
Make sure that your local AC mains voltage matches the voltage specified on the name plate on the bottom panel. In some areas a voltage selector may
be provided on the rear panel of the main keyboard unit near the power cord. Make sure that the voltage selector is set for the voltage in your area. The
voltage selector is set at 240V when the unit is initially shipped. To change the setting use a "minus" screwdriver to rotate the selector dial so that the
correct voltage appears next to the pointer on the panel.
For information on assembling the keyboard stand, refer to the instructions at the end of this manual.
