1. Installation manual:
1.1 Installation of the USB-Board:
Turn the PSR-9000 upside down. Remove all 6 screws from the cover of the
SIMMS and HARD DISK and remove it.
Remove the four screws from the hard disk cover inside, and remove the cover
with the hard disk.
Put it on the upper side of the hard disk, remove the four screws of that holds
the hard disk and turn the metal cover of the hard disk 180 degree and put it on
the Hard disk again.
See picture 1:
Now put on the holes that used for fasten the hard disk the four plastic
separation rings. Put on the USB-Interface board on it and mount all together
with the four attached screws.
Attach the flat cable to the USB-Interface board and hard disk (picture 2):
Connect the USB cable to the USB board now.
Install all back into the PSR-9000 so you can see the upper side of the hard
disk. It is no problem for a 2,5`` hard disk that it is turned around. Put the free
44-pin connector of the USB-Board into the PSR-9000 hard disk connector.
Schematic of the installation:
Important: Take care that the raisings of the metal plate are in direction of the
hard disk, this is to prevent a short circuit between the hard disk and the metal
Now you can make a first test of your USB-Interface:
1.) Switch on the PSR-9000. First of all you should check if you hear the
hard disk running and if you have normal access to the hard disk via the
2.) Switch your computer on and after it is running connect the computer and
the PSR-9000 via the USB attached USB cable. Now the computer should
recognize the USB-Interface, and refer to the driver install section.
1.2 Installation of the USB Connector:
The USB Connecter will be installed directly on the free place in the near of the
power connector.
Make the following steps:
1.) Open the keyboard:
Turn the keyboard upside down, and loosen all 28 screws of the bottom
side, including these in the reinforcements. Now you can take of the
bottom casing.
2.) First put the USB Cable between the green main-board and the metalbox, the best position is in the near of the fat connector CN2. Now put
the cable into the slot that lies between the loudspeaker and the big
metal box in the middle of the PSR-9000. Now reconnect the small board
with the USB-Connector on the USB Cable. Don’t put the cable just over
the metal box, because if you reinstall the bottom the cable could be
wounded by the bottom of the PSR-9000.
Loosen now the two screws that holds the black metal-plate in the near of
the power connector (don’t forget to pull out the connector before) and
put out the black metal plate. Mount the USB Conector on this position.
To prevent that dust comes inside your PSR-9000 you can cut off the
stencil of the last page, clue it on some cardboard and mount it between
the USB Connector and the backside of the PSR-9000.

data loss that is caused by the use of the USB-Interface
Do not disconnect the USB-Cable if a transmission via USB is running!
You can loose data if you do that.

saver gets activated it interferes with the USB-data transfer. We
recommend to switch the screen saver off. This can be done in the following
way: Switch the function button, and select the menu “UTILITY”. Now go
to the page “time” and switch the screen saver to “NEVER”. Don’t forget to
store this adjustment in the Flash-Rom.
