My friend has a Kn6500, the LCD screen is going. It is getting dimmer with a mark in the center of the screen.

My questions:
1-I do not see a video output on the Kn6500, is there possible to add one.
2-What is the cost of adding a LCD screen if available
3-Are there any options.
I know this is a topic that has been gone over many times, but I am trying to help a 83 year old keep his music going. He loves to create technics midis.

Help much appreciated, John C.

www.wdgreenhill.com is the only stockist I know of concerning Technics keyboards. The KN6500 must be around 20 years out of production so spares might not be available any more John C.

This is the UK eBay website but I can see the same item on the US eBay website...

The item is in the US... Bit Pricy.....

I believe the KN7000 was the first to add a Video Output connection, and it doesn't produce very good results... See thread ref. KN7000 faulty screen....
