Hello, may name is***** am an audio engineer and previously worked for Guitar Center.On the back of your keyboard, there are many outputs for sound. The one most used is the one labeled MIX, L, (MONO). This audio jack is at the opposite end of the keyboard from the power cord. It is the third one in. You would use an instrument cable (or guitar cable) to connect this to an audio mixer, keyboard amplifier or guitar amplifier. Plug the power cable in and turn it on using the switch next to the power cable. If the keyboard does not turn on, you might need to replace the battery ( I can tell you how to do that). Is there anything else you would like to connect to your keyboard? Just let me know if there is anything else you would like to connect and I will help you out.

Thank you, Doug
