I have a Disklavier with mk II (DKC100R) control unit that has a flakey diskette drive, dead LED display, and pushbuttons whose sensitivity has greatly diminished.

I can't find replacement parts or a used mk II control box for this unit anywhere, but I do see a plethora of post mk II control boxes (mk III, DKC55, DKC500, etc) for sale on eBay and other places.

I would greatly appreciate if anyone can tell me authoritatively whether or not any of these later control units would be compatible with my Disklavier's player action and mechanicals? I'm not certain, but I think the piano is a DC3FII.

Thank you.

You've posted in the tech forum for conventional, wood-and-steel pianos. You will get more help in either the Digital Piano Forum or in the Piano Forum, I'm not sure which.

Disklavier is not a digital piano, it's an acoustic piano with a computerized player unit.

[quote][/quote]Loren, thank you for your input -- our friend is asking about the computerized part of the setup, and on this particular forum we don't focus a lot on that -- I see he has gotten good advice and direction as to where to ask his question, however , and I thank you for your information to me --
