1 Un screw all the screw on black panel, but must remember where each on goes, but Be careful not the two screws in side mouth pice which holding the pitch bend unit. 2. open the battery cover remove all the battery 3. Remove the 1/4 earphone nut, and all screws on the silver metal case. (Under the black plastic ), you don't need to remove any screws from the "key" side 4. Use something to pull the battery Cartridge sideway out from Main attachments, but not all the way out from the ewi case, because you can't, the plastic case structure will be in the way, 5. Use some flat pice metal like dinning knife insert in to between black and sliver metal to separate the two parts, start from the mouth pice end, once you open wide enough the battery cartridge can be remove from the case out. Now you can open the Ewi 4000s and see the two HX nuts that holds the strap mount, put some Nail polish on it before you tie them up.....Warning.. You must pull the battery cartage sideway out from its electric plugging mount before you are trying to separate the plastic and silver housing otherwise you will damage the circuit board. That was What I did to mine. Good luck and may God provide you wisdom for this.

Well the advice of MIDI incompatible machines could be the problem but MIDI was designed to be compatible it is a defined standard so it can be compatible on every MIDI device no matter who made it. However life is not like that and some manufacturers added their own extra none standard
MIDI extras so things got complicated. What you need to do is diagnose where the problem is by a process of eliminating each device. Test the devices with other MIDI machines and if possible get someone to check that your MIDI signals are being sent and received OK. If each machine checks out OK then you might like to check the MIDI standards of each machine and get an electronics wiz kid to check your data info is correct on the DATA ports of each machine. Narrow it down until the fault is found and fix or figure out a work around. Good luck.

I am assuming that you broke the connector off the pcb board? you need a soldering iron about 30W and solder and flux, to remove and short circuit after you solder them back on, using a magnifying glass to make sure none of the 5 termnials are shorted

Btw, I’m available to help over the phone in case u need at https://www.6ya.com/expert/tony_a41fa0b801734e2f

Hey man I have the same problem. I got the io2 express.. is it possible ? Never seen anyone answer this for me.

The power switch will need to be replaced. This will need to be done by a tech rather than the end user unless you are experienced in electronic repair. Take it to the shop.
