Hi,Last week I bought an kn5000 like brand new (no finger print)

I have done a check for the update
I press on split+auto play+variation 3-4=result
Main program 1330=version 6
Main table 87
Sub program 140
Sound table 55
I had to upgrade with the last version 10
I update version 10 by pressing the panel memory 1 2 3 4
the update was successfull
I when back to make a check by pressing again split + auto play
+variation 3+4 and the result was
Main program 1354
Main Table 87
Sub Table 142
Sound Table 55
After I press digital drawbar+accordeon reg+gm special and on the screen right bottom it was V A
I would like to know why its not V10
Is it because I did not download the version 7,8 and 9 ???
I just whent from version to version 10
Thanks for your help

Version 10A is the very last update to KN5000 if i remember it correctly.
I cannot remember if it only was just A or 10A at the screen after update was done.
I'm not sure if v10A is downloadable here at SZ, if not, I have it with instructions about how to do.
Cheers 🥂

Hi Howard,

It may be that the operating system is displaying the Hexadecimal number for 10... Hexadecimal notation (Hex) is often used in computer based instruments and their software.
In hexadecimal notation you have 0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,a,b,c,d,e,f representing the decimal values of 0 to 15.

So hexadecimal 'a' is equivalent to 10 Decimal : 'b' = 11 etc.
Hex is usually written in lower case letters, but can also be written in upper case.
