Hi Alan, Did you ever get your problem fixed ??

There is one available in UK Here :
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/LCD-SCREEN-FOR-TECHNICS-KN7000-ORIGINAL-LCD-SCREEN-FOR-KN7000-/282308693572?hash=item41bae8ce44:g:w6MAAOSwo4pYILD4

It's a fairly straightforward process to get into the Control Panel of the KN7000... I've just replaced the START/STOP switches on both my KN7000s. I was really impressed with the internal build quality.....

Hi Bill,

My apologies for not answering sooner.
The screen has deteriorated further, now being un-readable.

While considering the age of the KN, & the use we have had out of it, we decided to purchase a new keyboard.

We now own a Yamaha PSR S-950. As we regularly use both keyboards (Tyros 4 & PSR) for the dances we run, we need the consistant reliability of the instruments.

As well the PSR will be able to be used as a back-up keyboard should the Tyros fail on a night. Having similar operating systems & filing, it should make life easier should the need ever arise.

We use the Tyros as our main keyboard, while the PSR is used as a harmony keyboard only.

Once again many thanks for your interest & help Bill.

Regards,

Alan

Allen this is the first time I have read your post. I am a bit shy to add something so simple, but is it possible to use a monitor screen to see what your Kn7 is doing. When I had mine I connected the Kn7 to my TV and it mirrored what was on the Kn7.

Maybe?????, John C.

Hi John,

I did try this with mixed results.
While the KN screen showed up with all of the information, a lot of the smaller information was un-readable & not clearly defined. I tried it with a number of TV's.
I also tried connecting the KN to a portable DVD player & came up with similar results. I also tried a number of DVD players.

Regards,

Alan
