[sdiy] Need urgent help, Juno 106 key contact broken lead

Tested resistance again, that pain creates about 5Kohm of resistance. Can this work ?

I believe any conductive paint will be resistive to a certain amount... what's the maximum resistance I should measure so the key still triggers ?

Thanks a lot !!

 Hi all and thanks very much !
 
 As I already answered to Rob, I got this product which I'm
 not sure is going to work:
 http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/b70c/
 
 I just tested it on a paper. Put some amount and let it dry
 for an hour. The resistance measured between two points on
 the paint which has dried on the paper is between 800ohm to
 3000ohm (varies).
 
 If I use this on the broken Key lead, will that amount of
 resistance still let the key trigger correctly ?
 
 Or should I look for pure silver paint, measuring complete
 zero ohm resistance ?
 
 Thanks a lot.

  Yeah if you can get onto a solder trace you can bridge it
  with spring 
  tension sometimes.  Also though I've used the trace
  repair stuff from 
  ..who is it chemtronics or....I'd have to look.  Radio
  shack carred the 
  'pen' that you can paint conductive material with. I fixed
 a
  couple 
  Kawai Midi Grand pianos (the big ones..) that were used on
  the river 
  boat in Lake Conroe some years back that way. People had
  spilled drinks 
  that ate traces here and there. Hopefully it's still
  working...
