Possible Cause and Solution
Make sure that the PSR-2000/1000 has been plugged in properly (page 16).
This is normal when electrical current is applied to the instrument.
Using a mobile phone in close proximity to the PSR-2000/1000 may produce
interference. To prevent this, turn off the mobile phone, or use it further away from
the PSR-2000/1000.
The brightness of the display may be affected by the surrounding temperature;
try adjusting the contrast (page 17).
The overall keyboard volume or the independent volume level of the keyboard
part may be set too low. Raise the MAIN/LAYER/LEFT volume voices or lower
the STYLE/SONG volume in the BALANCE display (page 61).
The volume level of one or more accompaniment parts or song channels is set
too low. Raise the part or channel level(s) in the appropriate MIXER display
(page 122).
• The Master Volume is set too low; set it to an appropriate level with the
• The volume of the individual parts may be set too low. Raise the volume of
MAIN, LAYER, LEFT, STYLE, and SONG in the BALANCE display (page 61).
• Make sure the desired channel is set to ON (page 61, 78).
• Headphones are connected, disabling the speaker output. Unplug the
• Make sure the Local Control function is set to ON (page 145).
You may be exceeding the maximum polyphony of the PSR-2000/1000. When
this happens, the earliest played notes will stop sounding, letting the latest
played notes sound. See page 162 for information on the maximum polyphony.
• MIDI Clock may be set to "EXTERNAL." Make sure this is set to "INTERNAL"
(page 146).
• Make sure to press the appropriate [START/STOP] button. To play an
accompaniment style, press the STYLE [START/STOP] button (page 61); to
playback a song, press the SONG [START/STOP] button (page 76).
• "New Song" (a blank song) has been selected. Make sure to select an
appropriate song in the SONG display (page 76).
• The song has been stopped at the end of the song data. Return to the
beginning of the song by pressing the [TOP] button (page 78).
MIDI Clock may be set to "EXTERNAL." Make sure this is set to "INTERNAL"

You may be trying to start accompaniment by playing a key in the right hand
range of the keyboard. Make sure to play a key in the left-hand (accompaniment)
range of the keyboard.
• You may not be playing the correct keys to indicate the chord. Refer to "Chord
Types Recognized in the Fingered Mode" (page 63).
• You may be playing the keys according to a different fingering mode, and not
the one currently selected. Check the accompaniment mode, and play the
keys according to the selected mode (page 62).
If, during execution of an operation, you simultaneously press three or more
buttons that are unrelated to the operation or normal procedure, unexpected or
unusual results may occur.
This is normal if the fingering mode is set to "Full Keyboard" or "AI Full Keyboard."
If either of these is selected, chords are recognized over the entire range of the
keyboard, irrespective of the split point setting. If desired, select a different
fingering mode (page 62).
