We have a Yamaha Digital Piano P-45 and we want to transpose

Customer Question

We have a Yamaha Digital Piano P-45 and we want to transpose down to a new key. When we follow the directions in the manual, the transposition is not a half step down but a full octave. What are we doing wrong?
JA: What's the make/model of your device? How old is it?
Customer: The instrument is brand new and I can't give you any more information since it's at a nursing home where I volunteer doing music with the residents.
JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?
Customer: We just got the instrument a couple weeks ago and we haven't done any trouble-shooting at all. We just followed the manual and nothing was successful.
JA: Anything else you want the instrument expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: No other questions.....other than what else can we try?
