Ac adapter port does not work
You probably need a new one, you could try to get a replacement from casio or try to get an after marked one. They sell the adapters that have multiple ends and voltage settings, if you go this way you need to be careful. Look at the old adapter, you need to know how the voltage (Will probably be between 6 and 12) and the current which is measures in amps (A). Will probably look something like this:
9V ~ 2.5A
you need to make sure that the new adapter has the SAME voltage (V). Having a higher or lower voltage can and probably will damage the keyboard, so it is important that this is the same. As for the current (A) you do not need an adapter with the same number here, but it is a good idea to use the original number as a minimum. The current is the measurement of how much electricity the adapter can supply to the unit, if the number is too low, it could potentially damage the keyboard and the adapter, but if its higher there is no problem. And obviously you need the right end on your new adapter to fit your keyboard. Say you found a new adapter with the correct voltage and current but the wrong end, if you were ambitious you could cut the end of your old adapter and splice it on to your new one, however, as these adapters are supplying dc current you need to make sure you do not switch the polarity (positive and negative), if you do damage will may ensue. You will need a multimeter to check the polarity of the new adapter make sure you splice the right wires together. (you will need to know what the keyboard need, sometimes it is indicated on the back near where the power plugs in.
I am starting to ramble, if you do intend to get another adapter and splice I would be happy to help you the rest of the way, but i will end it here for now.
