--I've looked everywhere I know to trying to find the factory restore or preload data to return my PA 50 back to factory. Any ideas where I might find these? I looked on the Korg page and it only show for the PA50 SD.

Also my screen isn't that bright and I now understand there is no contrast control, I've bought a new backlight from Parts Is Parts but am not sure if replacing it is something I can do. I've never soldered anything in my life but from the picture it looks like the backlight just plugs in?

Any help would be appreciated, thanks..
Scott

I only have the pa50SD but I'm fairly sure you will need at least 10 floppy disks, 5 to backup what you have Now. If you don't do that *First* you may end up with a dead keyboard.

The other 5 disks are needed to load the system back to factory.

Meantime some helpful advice about your keyboard problem here;
http://www.justanswer.com/electronic-musical-instruments/7oco0-korg-pa50-need-return-factory-settings-after.html

The Korg link on that page is out of date but I'm guessing the pa50SD files may work, Others here might know more,,,,Or you could just Email Korg.
