PRECAUTIONS PLEASE READ CAREFULLY BEFORE PROCEEDING

* Please keep this manual in a safe place for future reference.

WARNING Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of serious injury or even death from electrical shock, short- circuiting, damages, fire or other hazards. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:

Do not place the power cord near heat sources such as heaters or radiators, and do not excessively bend or otherwise damage the cord, place heavy objects on it, or place it in a position where anyone could walk on, trip over, or roll anything over it.

Only use the voltage specified as correct for the instrument. The required voltage is printed on the name plate of the instrument.

Use the specified adaptor (page 31) only. Using the wrong adaptor can result in damage to the instrument or overheating.

Check the electric plug periodically and remove any dirt or dust which may have accumulated on it.

This instrument contains no user-serviceable parts. Do not open the instrument or attempt to disassemble or modify the internal components in any way. If it should appear to be malfunctioning, discontinue use immediately and have it inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.

Do not expose the instrument to rain, use it near water or in damp or wet conditions, or place containers on it containing liquids which might spill into any openings. If any liquid such as water seeps into the instrument, turn off the power immediately and unplug the power cord from the AC outlet. Then have the instrument inspected by qualified Yamaha service personnel.

Never insert or remove an electric plug with wet hands.

Do not put burning items, such as candles, on the unit. A burning item may fall over and cause a fire.

Always replace all batteries at the same time. Do not use new batteries together with old ones.

Do not mix battery types, such as alkaline batteries with manganese batteries, or batteries from different makers, or different types of batteries from the same maker, since this can cause overheating, fire, or battery fluid leakage.

Do not tamper with or disassemble batteries. Do not dispose of batteries in fire. Do not attempt to recharge batteries that are not intended to be charged. Keep batteries away from children. If the batteries do leak, avoid contact with the leaked fluid. If the battery fluid should

come in contact with your eyes, mouth, or skin, wash immediately with water and consult a doctor. Battery fluid is corrosive and may possibly cause loss of sight or chemical burns.

Always make sure all batteries are inserted in conformity with the +/- polarity markings. Failure to do so might result in overheating, fire, or battery fluid leakage.

When the batteries run out, or if the instrument is not to be used for a long time, remove the batteries from the instrument to prevent possible leakage of the battery fluid.

When one of the following problems occur, immediately turn off the power switch and disconnect the electric plug from the outlet. (If you are using batteries, remove all batteries from the instrument.) Then have the device inspected by Yamaha service personnel. The power cord or plug becomes frayed or damaged. It emits unusual smells or smoke. Some object has been dropped into the instrument. There is a sudden loss of sound during use of the instrument.

CAUTION Always follow the basic precautions listed below to avoid the possibility of physical injury to you or others, or damage to the instrument or other property. These precautions include, but are not limited to, the following:

Do not connect the instrument to an electrical outlet using a multiple-connector. Doing so can result in lower sound quality, or possibly cause overheating in the outlet.

When removing the electric plug from the instrument or an outlet, always hold the plug itself and not the cord. Pulling by the cord can damage it.

Remove the electric plug from the outlet when the instrument is not to be used for extended periods of time, or during electrical storms.

Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it might accidentally fall over.

Before moving the instrument, remove all connected cables. When setting up the product, make sure that the AC outlet you are using is easily

accessible. If some trouble or malfunction occurs, immediately turn off the power switch and disconnect the plug from the outlet. Even when the power switch is turned off, electricity is still flowing to the product at the minimum level. When you are not using the product for a long time, make sure to unplug the power cord from the wall AC outlet.

Use only the stand specified for the instrument. When attaching the stand or rack, use the provided screws only. Failure to do so could cause damage to the internal components or result in the instrument falling over.

Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off the power for all components. Before turning the power on or off for all components, set all volume levels to minimum.

Be sure to set the volumes of all components at their minimum levels and gradually raise the volume controls while playing the instrument to set the desired listening level.

Do not insert a finger or hand in any gaps on the instrument. Never insert or drop paper, metallic, or other objects into the gaps on the panel. Do not rest your weight on, or place heavy objects on the instrument, and do not use

excessive force on the buttons, switches or connectors. Do not use the instrument/device or headphones for a long period of time at a high or

uncomfortable volume level, since this can cause permanent hearing loss. If you experience any hearing loss or ringing in the ears, consult a physician.

Always turn the power off when the instrument is not in use. Even when the [ ] (Standby/On) switch is turned off, electricity is still flowing to the instrument at the minimum level. When you are not using the instrument for a long time, make sure you unplug the power cord from the wall AC outlet. Make sure to discard used batteries according to local regulations.

Setting Up

7

DD-45/YDD-40 Owners Manual

Make all necessary settings below BEFORE turning the power on (page 9).

CAUTION Before connecting the instrument to other electronic components, turn off the power of all the components.

Also, before turning any components on or off, make sure to set all volume levels to minimum (0). Otherwise, electrical shock or damage to the components may occur.

Power Requirements

Although the instrument will run either from an AC power adaptor or batteries, Yamaha recommends use of an

AC adaptor whenever possible. An AC adaptor is more environmentally friendly than batteries and does not

deplete resources.

Using an AC Power Adaptor

q Connect the AC adaptor to the power supply jack.

WARNING Use the specified adaptor (page 31) only. The use of other

adaptors may result in irreparable damage to both the adap- tor and the instrument.

w Plug the AC adaptor into an AC outlet.

CAUTION Unplug the AC power adaptor when not using the instru-

ment, or during electrical storms.

Even when the instrument is turned off, electricity is still flowing to the instrument at the minimum level. When you are not using the instrument for a long time, make sure you unplug the AC power adaptor from the wall AC outlet.

NOTE

Connecting the AC power adaptor automatically supplies power from the adaptor and overrides battery power, even when batter- ies are installed.

Using Batteries

q Open the battery compartment cover located on the instruments bottom panel.

w Insert six AA size, LR6 or equivalent batteries, being careful to follow the polarity markings on the side of the compartment.

e Replace the compartment cover, making sure that it locks firmly in place.

When battery power becomes too low for proper

operation, the volume may be reduced, the sound may be distorted, and other problems may occur.

When this happens, make sure to replace all batter-

ies, following the precautions listed below.

CAUTION Use alkaline batteries for this instrument. Other types of

batteries (including rechargeable batteries) may have sud- den drops of power when battery power becomes low.

Make sure to install the batteries with the proper orienta- tion, maintaining the correct polarity (as shown). Incorrect battery installation may result in heat, fire and/or leaking of corrosive chemicals.

When the batteries run down, replace them with a complete set of six new batteries. NEVER mix old and new batteries. Do not use different kinds of batteries (e.g. alkaline and manganese) at the same time.

If the instrument is not to be in use for a long time, remove the batteries from it, in order to prevent possible fluid leak- age from the battery.

Using a Drum Stand

An optional stand Yamaha SS662 is available for installing this instrument. Fix the instrument on the stands arms, aligning the stand position marks on the bottom of the instrument.

NOTE

Do not tighten the arms more than necessary. Over tightening may result in bending the instrument.

CAUTION Do not place the instrument in an unstable position where it

may overturn; doing so can result in damage to the instru- ment or personal injury.

Before moving the instrument, remove the stand from the instrument. Otherwise it may fall off.

Connecting Headphones ([PHONES/OUTPUT] jack)

Connect a set of headphones to the [PHONES/OUT- PUT] jack. The speaker of this instrument is automat- ically shut off when a plug is inserted into this jack. The [PHONES/OUTPUT] jack also functions as an external output. You can connect the [PHONES/ OUTPUT] jack to a keyboard amplifier, stereo system, mixer, or other line-level audio device to send the instruments output signal to that device.

WARNING Avoid listening with the headphones at high volume for

long periods of time; doing so may not only result in ear fatigue, it may be damaging to your hearing.

CAUTION When the instruments sound is output to an external device,

first turn on the power to the instrument, then to the external device. Reverse this order when you turn the power off.

Connecting an Audio Source ([AUX IN] jack)

This jack is for connection to an external audio source such as an MP3 player. You can play the instrument with backing music and accompani- ment, like playing with a full band. Adjust the input level from the volume control of the external audio source for optimum balance.

CAUTION When the sound of an external device is output to the

instrument, first turn on the power to the external device, then to the instrument. Reverse this order when you turn the power off.

NOTE

Any audio signal input to the [AUX IN] jack is processed in mono.

Connecting a Pedal ([PEDAL] jack)

This jack is for connection of an optional pedal FC4 or FC5. The pedal can be used to play the Drum Kits bass drum Voicesor can also be assigned to play other Voices as well.

CAUTION Make sure that the pedal plug is properly connected to the

[PEDAL] jack before turning on the power.

Do not press the pedal while turning the power on. Doing this changes the recognized polarity of the pedal, resulting in reversed pedal operation.

Protect the floor by placing a mat or area rug underneath the pedal. The pedal may damage the floor after an extended period of time.

Avoid getting caught in or tripping over the pedal cords; this may cause the instrument to fall and result in damage or injury.

NOTE

Troubleshooting

DD-45/YDD-40 Owners Manual

Problem Possible Cause and Solution

When the instrument is turned on or off, a popping sound is temporarily produced.

This is normal and indicates that the instrument is receiving electri- cal power.

The LED display is dark. The batteries are low or dead. Replace all six batteries with com- pletely new ones, or use an AC adaptor.

The volume is too low.

The Custom Kit Voice assignments have disap- peared or been reset to their default settings.

When using a mobile phone, noise is produced. Using a mobile phone in close proximity to the instrument may pro- duce interference. To prevent this, turn off the mobile phone or use it further away from the instrument.

No sound comes from the speakers. The volume is set too low. Adjust the volume (page 9).

Check that nothing is connected to the [PHONES/OUTPUT] jack on the rear panel. When a plug is inserted into this jack, no sound is output.

None of the buttons work. The panel buttons have been locked. Turn off Panel Button Lock (page 10).

The power was turned off suddenly. The Auto Power Off function (page 9) is active. When the instrument is not in use for about ten minutes, power is turned off automatically.
