a voltage selector may be provided on the bottom 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.
