Casio SK-5 Installation
SKM Version 2: SK-5 Installation Instructions
Step 1: Assemble the SKM circuit board.
See the illustrated assembly notes. Set position #5 on the DIP switch to "ON".
Step 2: Attach the hook-up wires.
Attach a 15" length of wire to each of the following pads on the SKM circuit board:
Step 3: Disconnect power from the SK-5.
Disconnect any external power cords and remove any batteries from the SK-5. After disconnection, move the SK-5 "mode" switch to the "play" position to drain any stored charges.
Step 4: Remove the internal speaker from the SK-5.
Open the SK-5's case and remove the speaker. Set aside the speaker mounting hardware for re-use.
Step 5: Mount the MIDI jack on the SK-5.
The MIDI jack requires one 5/8" hole and two 3/32" holes as shown. Be careful not to damage the SK-5's internal parts when creating the holes.
Use two of the speaker mounting screws to secure the jack.
Step 6: Mount the SKM circuit board.
Use the speaker mounting hardware to secure the SKM circuit board. Tighten the screws just enough to secure the SKM circuit board.
Step 7: Connect the MIDI jack to the SKM.
Note the numbering of pins on the MIDI jack.
Connect pin 4 on the MIDI jack to the pad marked "M4" on the SKM circuit board. Connect pin 5 on the MIDI jack to the pad marked "M5" on the SKM circuit board.
Step 8: Connect the SKM power lines to the SK-5.
Connect the "GND" and "+5V" pads on the SKM circuit board to the SK-5 main board as shown.
Step 9: Connect the SKM keyboard control lines to the SK-5.
Locate the 12-conductor ribbon cable that connects the SK-5 keys to the SK-5 main board. The conductors are numbered 1 to 12. Connect each of the "TO KEYBOARD" pads on the SKM circuit board to the corresponding conductor of the ribbon cable.
In this example, the wires are routed underneath the SK-5 main board to meet with the ribbon cable.
Step 10: Connect the SKM "AUX SCAN" control lines to the SK-5.
Locate the 25-conductor ribbon cable that connects the SK-5 buttons to the SK-5 main board. The conductors are numbered 1 to 25. Connect each of the "AUX SCAN" pads on the SKM circuit board to the following conductors of the ribbon cable:
[SKM "AUX SCAN"] - [SK-5 25-Pin Ribbon][*]1 - Not Connected[*]2 - Not Connected[*]3 - 10[*]4 - 4[*]5 - Not Connected[*]6 - Not Connected
Connect your SK-5 to the "MIDI OUT" port on any MIDI sequencer or MIDI controller.
