Hello, my name is***** to Justanswer! Give me just a few minutes to look up some specifics, I'm working on this now.

Expert:  Rusty replied 15 days ago.

There is an internal battery that needs to be replaced. The battery is what keeps the stored information on the keyboard when it's turned off. When the battery dies, there is no memory. You'll need to remove all of the screws from the bottom of the piano, to flip the top of the keyboard up. You'll see a round shiny battery, that's what needs to be replaced. There is a number on the battery, that is how to identify the replacement. You can get a replacement at any electronics store, or drug store.

Be sure to unplug the keyboard and let it sit for 10 minutes before starting to work on it.

Rusty- Perhaps I should explain that only the pedal assignment disappears when the power is turned on again. The Style, set voices and rhythm all work fine. Please consider this information and reply before I start work on the Clavinova.
Expert:  Rusty replied 15 days ago.

Hmm, that changes things... How old is it? Did it used to keep the pedal settings?

Customer: replied 15 days ago.
Rusty- The Clavinova is about 3 months old. When the pedal assignment is made on my teacher's CVP 709 Clavinova to "Ending 2" and the Flash Drive is installed in my instrument the assignment works OK. But when I make the Assignment on my instrument it works while ever the power is kept on,BUT disappears when power is turned off and then on again.PLease advse.

I'm not exactly sure why it's acting different than the 709, they use very similar software. I'm going to open this question back up, you will get a full refund if we cannot get this fully resolved.

Rusty. Good News . The problem has been solved merely by returning the Clavinova to Factory Settings by holding down the Rightmost piano key. Nobody knows how the problem arose or why. Thank you for your assistance in this Matter.
