Help with (apparently) fried USB connection

Recommended Posts

I love my PX-130 and decided to try to hook it up as a MIDI controller. I plugged in the USB to a Mac and it made 2 other devices on the USB hub brown out - got a warning that the device was pulling too much power.


I tried hooking it to a Windows computer and it said that the USB device malfunctioned and could not be recognized.


I have tried several different cables, using a USB hub and plugging directly into the computers without success.  I do have a microKORG running as a MIDI controller, so I know the software on the computer side is fine.


I suspect the Casio end of this has malfucntioned somehow. Not sure if there are replaceable parts in the USB controller or if I should send it in somewhere for repair.


Any help that you could give would be greatly appreciated.

Yeah, sounds like something isn't quite right there. Make sure you get an estimate before going ahead with the repair, as it may make more sense just to upgrade to a new PX-160 or other Privia model.
