Light up keys on my piano blink instead of just stay lit

How do I get the light up keys on my clavinova to stop blinking and just stay lit instead until I press the correct key(s). It's really hypnotic and distracting.

Sorry for the wait on this!

I'm afraid I'm a little unfamiliar with Yamaha's Clavinova line. Usually when we hear from users with a Clavinova, it's because the key lights don't work at all. It wasn't until Yamaha created the EZ-220 that they seemed to allow outside MIDI input to control the key lights. And even then, it's not an official protocol: keyboards with lights tend to show them even for very quiet notes, so Synthesia is really just sending note messages with the lowest possible velocity.

I worry that the blinking might be a built-in "feature" of the Clavinova. At least on the other handful of lighted-key models we've tested (and in MIDI monitoring software like MIDI-OX), key light messages are sent once when it's time to light up and again when it's time to turn them off.

I tried Synthesia with the Clavinova CSP 150 and 170. They have a panel above the keys and 3 (perhaps 4) leds per key, to simulate dropping notes (so no lit keys themselves).

When I ran Synthesia I remember that the bottom led would light up, but I don't remember blinking.
