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 way to get access to the screen? Can you get in from the back by unscrewing everything that sits on top or do you need to remove the knobs and sliders and remove the top panel? I've looked through the service manual (no help) and there aren't any sites that I've found on servicing the keyboard.

Any info would be appreciated before I get stuck into it with a hammer and chisel ;)

Many thanks.
