Re: Kawai K5000s - access to LCD display

Definitely not glued. It's been 6 years since that operation, so I don't remember exactly. But wasn't that hard. I don't remember having to remove a lot. There were no mechanical problems. Just make sure that you don't have any shorts in the display lines because shorting 5v to ground immediately k...

I'm thinking of replacing the screen on my K5k as it's quite dim and blo...

Re: KAWAI K5000 Cool Blue LCD!

Hi all I don't mean to hijack the thread but it's sort of related... I'm also thinking of replacing the screen on my K5k as it's quite dim and blotchy in places. I opened up the case (only removed the back panel) and had a bit of a look to see how to get access to the display. Is there a specific wa...

Re: Deepmind 12 High Pitched Noise

Have you asked over at Gearslutz? Gearslutz DeepMind thread 622 pages and counting!!! I haven't asked Gearslutz specifically... I've searched the web for any info regarding this noise and all of the posts on Gearslutz are several years old and all ask the same question as I've asked... no one has p...

Re: Deepmind 12 High Pitched Noise

The pitched noise/whine on mine was coming from the pitch/Mod-wheel illumination. You can turn the light off in the config menu. Now I don't have any unusual noises. Thanks for the head's up ... I'll try your suggestion and post back with the results (though the illuminated wheels do look kinda gro...

Kawai K5000s Replacement Battery?

Hi all I was just wondering if anyone knew what type of internal battery a K5000s takes? I recently picked one up 2nd hand (obviously!) but I don't know if/when it was replaced so I thought I'd give it a quick once-over... I had a quick look at the service manual but can't find a reference to any in...

Re: Iomega SCSI ZIP 100 with a CASIO FZ-20M

The Iomega Zip and Jaz drives are usually a simple setup and have switchable built in termination ... as Madtheory suggested, switch this to ON if it's the only hardware you've attached to the Casio but if there are problems, also try using it set to OFF... make sure the drive it up and spinning bef...
