How to connect Yamaha P-45 to Zoom Q3HD for recording??

Hello guys. I've been trying to record my digital piano (Yamaha P-45) with Zoom Q3HD via Line In. Unfortunately, Zoom Q3HD only records the left channel. Therefore, how to record left and right channel without losing audio quality? As for the connection, I connected the digital piano to Zoom with 3.5mm AUX cable(TRS). So that was the mistake??

*Yamaha P-45 only has PHONE jack which is used to connect headphones.

So the XLR cable splits the signal into left and right signal? In order to connect the digital piano to Zoom Q3HD, I need a 3.5mm(attached with 6.3mm adapter) to XLR male cable and another XLR female to 3.5mm cable right?

This is what you need. But I don't think it is available commercially off-the-shelf.
I have one that I made myself. It isn't hard. And you can have Redco make one for you.

I'm afraid I'm unable to do that. It's hard to find places like RedCo near my area. Thanks for the recommendation though.
However, what if I use RCA connector? I should be able to record both left and right channel right? Because the RCA connector splits the stereo signal into two mono signals.

I don't know what using RCA has to do with anything? It doesn't matter what connectors and adapters you use as long as the tip from the source goes to both the tip and ring of the destination.
