I think a series of 8~12 keys are non-responsive. Iirc, I did a web search, and it's just a matter of opening it up, and performing some sort of reasonable DIY fix.

What is that worth possibly? Free? $50? I just want to liquidate the thing to get it out of the way. Or should I not even bother, and try to DIY fix-it, then sell it. But I have so many irons in the fire already.

I'd start it out at $50 and see where that takes you. I'm not sure what action it has in it, but perhaps users with older Kurzweils would be interested since they also use Fatar actions and parts for the older units are getting hard to find (namely the TP-10/MDF keybed used in the PC88 and K2500XS).

I think that would be about right; around 3 years ago I sold my Studio 900 (worked very well, no problems) for $125 I believe on GL.
