So I opened it up, and once the black wire goes inside the keyboard, it spread into the four colored fire. These are soldered onto the circuit board, next to letters
White : V (olts)
Yellow : D (ata)
Green : C (LK)
Red: G (round)

I haven't tried it yet, but I hope it works. I'll get back to you all on that.

Sounds about right  smiley

If it doesn't work then it might have been that all the wrong wire combos messed it up but normally they're pretty good at protecting themselves  smiley-razz

IMHO, Wikipedia should remove that table
Isn't wikipedia edited by members?

In that case, why don't you remove it?  ;D

I just tried the new wiring config-- same as before. Nothing. Must be something inside the keyboard, then. Oh Well.

It's a foot switch (I'm not sure where that come from) connected to the guts of a USB keyboard, wired so that one foot pedal will generate "page up" and the other will generate "page down."  It is supposed to be destined to become part of a music system so that a guitarist can advance pages of lyrics/chords on a laptop as she sings/plays, rather than having to deal with the current 50+ pounds of paper...
