Lets start from the beginning...

Set your multimeter to read volts - probably on the 20V range to start with.

With batteries in the keyboard and the keyboard off, hold the black meter lead on the battery negative terminal on the keyboard and the red lead on the battery positive terminal. What does the meter say?

Now switch the keyboard on - does the voltage change?

James.
