    Howdy -

    I've had a Kurzweil K2500SX for years and it is still chugging along - but a few of the keys are clacking.

    My assumption/hope is that there are pads that are worn and (hopefully) easily replaced.

    Can anyone offer any guidance as to how I can find a repair manual or other resource that shows how to get into the necessary area?

    Appreciate it~

    From one Gary to another - many thanks!
    Depending on how many connectors and polar oddities there are to keep track of, I may chicken out - but hey - nothing like a challenge!

    Be EXTREMELY careful removing the pitch and mod wheel connectors. They are that crappy flat flex mylar junk and VERY delicate.

    Thanks; I'll probably be overly careful; depending on what I see in the videos I may just wait until something actually breaks - or until that knocking annoys me too much. It's just two keys, right next to each other, that when released make that sound.
