Re: Trouble with midi and USB connection to kn2600

Apart from the direct upload/download of SMF/Technics to the KN, I have managed to connect the USB and MIDI to a PC. If you can explain what you want to achieve I might be able to help. For instance I connected a Yamaha DD-55 Drum kit via MIDI to the KN …

Re: KN5000 WANTED LCD SCREEN

Since the LCD is likely to be good unless it is bleeding between characters the chances are that any LCD in these keyboards is liable to be a problem due to drive issues or back-light issues rather than the LCD itself. The back-light is of course a small …

Re: SX PX73 C,E,G# keys can only be played once

I can only suggest that it needs the key frame stripped and checked. It could be that there has been past corrosion of the printed circuit board which has cut a track. All pianos have different effects when these parts start to go wrong. Some only do erro…

Re: SX PX73 C,E,G# keys can only be played once

Thanks for the response!

It looks clean right of the bat but we've cleaned the contact board anyways. The demo works fine. Every 4th key(C,E,G#) is still broken though and can only be pressed once (loud sound and long sustain)

Re: Technics GA3 organ sounds missing

Glad to be of use, The full reset is really only to be used in situation like you found yourself in and often resolves problems that a "Performance" reset from the initial menu does not do. It in effect gives you a clean slate to start over, and does away…

I'm indebted to you Sir. I did as you suggested, the organ re-initialised and once again all is good in my world. The voices have all returned whether selected from the one stop organ or as I was using registrations from a floppy disc.

Any thoughts please?

Hello,

I've owned a Technics SL1200 MkII for a couple of weeks now.
I've noticed sibilance in the treble across different records, most of which in good to very good conditions.

Before I conclude it's the cartridge's fault (Sonus blue - VTA 1 - cou…

Re: SX PX73 C,E,G# keys can only be played once

Your keyboard scanner seems to be faulty. The 73 has a dedicated ic that scans the keyboard contacts twice to determine the velocity of the key press and it uses a small memory chip as a buffer also on the same board. This is a basic chip that from what …

Re: Technics KN 2000 transformer dead

The 2000 has an internal transformer and that in turn is protected by a pair of fuses on the connector board where the mains comes in. Transformers don't really fail without looking like they have been fried unless the internal thermal fuse has blown whic…
