I am the new owner of the Korg pa 800 I mostly perform live using SMF (standard midi files)bought on different professional online SMF sites. Most of them do not have a track for the harmonizer. How do I make the harmonizer work with such kind of SMF? Do I have to create an harmonizer track? If so, how do I do it and what are the necessary steps to create it and set up the keyboard in a way that when I load each SMF the harmonizer is automatically ready to work?

i found this for you
SMF Converter is software that converts commercially available Standard MIDI file (SMF) data to a format that is supported by CASIO electronic musical instruments, and then transfers the converted data to the instrument. After data is transferred, it can be used with the lesson function for lesson play. For details about using converted data, see the user documentation that comes with each instrument. http://music.casio.com/e/smf click the blue download button near bottom of page.---- not the four other links.
Please connect to a computer using a USB cable. Then you can use a commercial MIDI file player to play to your keyboard.
Alternatively, you can download SMF Converter from http://music.casio.com/e/smf/
This program will convert SMF (.mid files) into a format readable by your Casio keyboard and then load it directly into your keyboard.
excellent question, there is prolly a different plug and its most likely a EURO cable , so yes you DO need the adapter should be able to get it there at the place your buying it at...and it ALSO needs to be able to ron on 110v (us standard) vs. the 208 or what ever the euro wattage is. if its switchable but you CANT find an adapter, buy a female end at the hardware store in france then when in US get a runner to goto the hardware store and get a male edison and 1 foot on 12-14 gauge wire and make one simply enough...IT NEEDS TO BE SWITCHABLE
I have a Wk-8000 & a CDP-200R, the later is the same as wk-500 but with 88 weighted hammer keys.
Since wk-500 can play SMF (Midi 0 & 1) format directly from a SD card and there is enough polyphony to play anything, I don't find any real reason to convert SMF to any "Casio Format". Just get a 2GB SD card and put your SMF files in the MUSDAT folder for the SD CARD using your PC/MAC.
First turn the unit off then rotate the input level volume control. If it feels loose pull up lightly on it as you do this. Also rotate all your controls that you don't normally use a lot. Chances are the pots are dirty. If that doesn't help you might want to check all the connectors inside the unit if you feel confident enough to go poking around. Other wise I suggest that you find a shop that will fix the problem. If you do go poking around make sure the units unplugged and that you have grounded yourself against static discharges.
