I will try to open the keyboard tonight and check those connections you mentioned. I'll keep everyone posted. Thank you so much for your help. I love this forum!

I did it...I opened the keyboard and saw the connector in the middle of the small board coming from the display LCD. It seems that it is tight but not tight enough to make sure that it doesn't get loose during transport. It has some resistance when I pulled it but not a lot. I debated whether or not I would cut the two wires and solder it to the two socket pins...and I decided to put it off. The keyboard is working again. I also checked all the connectors and I found one that was pulled out a little on one side(I hope it's the one for the vocalizer. (I was having problems with it too.).

Dreamer, thanks for identifying the screws I should remove.
George, thanks for telling me about the display connectors. I wish you were here in Houston so I can buy you both a drink..and a table dance if you so desire.

Time to play some music!

Have lots of beauties here in the clubs! Most of them know me by my first name...."Sucker!", He He. The invitation is for real. Just let me know if you will be in this side of town. BTW, I'll be travelling to Scotland next week..Dunfermline and Glascow area. Maybe I can swing by Rome and pay you a visit!

I forgot to mention something about my keyboard exploration last night....the power supply line connectors going to the on/off switch were not grabbing tight enough. I tightened all four of them with a needle nose. That could have been one of the problems. The keyboard is working again. It turns on when I tell it to and the vocalizer is not making any more ticking sound.

Time to go to work. Have a great day everyone..especially you, Dreamer. Go and do some endocrinologing (sp?) today!
Phil

Phil,
if you happen to drift towards Rome, just let me know; maybe not the same beauties as in Houston, but...
Thank you for your words and your invitation too; I am almost a fixture in your country, but have never been to Texas, so...
Andrea

You can ease on up to Shreveport, it's only about 3 hours from Houston. You'll like the girls here. We send all the ugly ones to Texas.

Phil,

I spent a year at U of H some 30+ years ago. My 2 favorite spots were the "Dome's Shadow" (near the Astrodome) and the Jug Club, where I played piano-bar. I'd be surprised if either of those places still exist!
