Dave,

Just a quick note to offer a tardy but most humble thanks for your generous support during the troubleshooting process. As per your last message, I think this is indeed a much trickier problem than I had first hoped, and it does look like an uph…

PR603M Fizzing noise

Hi there,
I have a PR603M ensemble piano which developed a fizzing noise when notes were played. I have had someone come around to repair it. He replaced the transistors on the amp board and that seemed to do the trick. A few weeks later, the fizzing …

Re: Need help to reinitialise my KN6000+EW65NX - looking for OS 7.1

I have a horrible feeling you will get no further with the 6000 now. One of the operations during the upgrade is a wipe of the existing OS and once it is gone you are relying on the rebuild from the floppy disks to put the OS back on the machine so it wil…

Re: Technics KN7000 switching Off by itself

To extend the life of these instruments they all need heatsinks on the parts that were replaced. I move them all off board and put a large heatsink over the top of the rear connectors. Without it will probably fail again at some point with the same fault.…

Re: Technics KN7000 switching Off by itself

Here we go again!
It was electrical regulators and some transistors problem. They replaced it, and my KN is live again.
I paid 180 EUR for parts and work, not cheap, but this was my first and last option.
I spoke with specialist and he told me, there i…

Re: Technics KN7000 switching Off by itself

Hi there
The KN7000 needs some work. The crucial parts are the 2 15 volt regulators and the two transistors in the 5volt and 3.3volt circuits as well as all their capacitors. Have a look around the site and you will find my notes on how this is best done…

Re: Technics KN7000 switching Off by itself

I will forward to our friendly engineer, it seems odd that the factory reset made the keyboard work for a short while. This may indicate a power supply problem and as it heats up the keyboard shuts down, get the + and - 15 volt regulators checked out as t…

Re: Technics KN7000 switching Off by itself

Hi , Sorry to hear you are having problems with your KN7000, I would recommend that we start with a Factory reset this will restore the keyboard to all initial settings. Doing a reset means you will lose any setting you have not stored, but this can not b…

Style Disks for SX-FA1

Good Day,

I was hoping to find a free style disk just to see how they work. Does anyone have a link to one by chance? I will help me decide on whether or not it makes sense to purchase some.

Thank you in advance,

Ken
