Casio wk 1200 sound cuts out - how do I open it up to fix it?

THe sound on my Casio WK 1200 cuts out when it warms up , like on a hot day. The LCD backlight cuts out, (although you can still read it), and the sound cuts out, although you can still hear the sound, very faint and distorted.
This can sometimes be remedied by a sharp tap on the left side of the keyboard, so it might be some loose/dry joint which is temperature sensitive, or a duff capacitor?
However, before I fix this, I have to work out how to open it up! I think I've taken out all the screws, but something seems to be preventing top and bottom of the case from opening. Any ideas, please?

    I also have a Casio Wk-1200 and it does the same thing. I realized that when I jiggle the back plugs it tends to work for a while. I also have a problem with the pedal plug-in shorting out as well which requires jiggling. When the sound cuts out on my keyboard (as you mentioned above) I also get this ear-piercing high pitched screeching sound and it scares the **** outta me everytime. I can't stand it. Helppppp!

If you can do soldering, open up and replace the electrolytic capacitors that are bulging or burst.

How do you replace the adaptor jack on a Casio WK-1200 keyboard ? is it easy ?

Unfortunately the adapter jacks are a bit of a weak point on many keyboards but it is quite seldom the jack socket itself that is at fault.
Often the sockets are soldered directly on to the printed circuit board and are prone to either one of the soldered legs breaking, or even the circuit board itself cracking around the jack socket. 
Whilst it is generally possible, with care, to resolder a broken leg on the socket if the actual circuit board has cracked the whole board will have to be replaced.
If the actual jack socket itself is damaged it should be possible to snip through the legs and remove it before soldering a new one on to the stumps of the old legs. this is likely to prove easier than trying to solder directly onto the circuit board, unless this is something that you are experienced at doing.

Apparently you can purchase a full service manual for the Casio WK-1200 here for a modest price but I have not used this source myself so cannot vouch for how good it might be.

It is easy if you are electronically adept. It invilves opening the unit and soldering, however, finding the exact tyoe of jack to fit may be a problem.

SMF converter for wk-500, Does it exist?


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.
