Hello mt name is ***** ***** I am a Yamaha certified technician. If you want to check the tuning. Follow this procedure, when the unit is in correct tuning the display should read "000"

You can fine tune the pitch of the entire instrument. The overall tuning of

the instrument can be shifted up or down by a maximum of 100 cents in 1-

cent increments (100 cents = 1 semitone).

1

Press the [FUNCTION] button a number of times until “Tuning”

appears.

2

Use the number buttons [0]-[9], [+] and [-] to set the Tuning value

between -100 and +100 as required.

I already explained that I read the manual which you just quoted. How do I know what tuning value is required? Am I charged for every answer? If I call am I Charged?

First of all no you are not charged for every answer. Second you did not say you had read the manual. Third go through the procedure shown and make the display show "000" that would be a-440 tuning which is standard.
