For few months OS restarting stopped, but before 10. days started again.
After that I decided to follow suggestions which Delawere Dave gave me. But, I didn't do exactly what he suggest to me. First I plug out only USB cable (which is MIDI connection for Kurzweil and Kronos).
After that, I played Kurzweil for a few days, without USB connection, and I didn't suffered, on Kurzweil, from OS restarting.
Please, can someone help to me with idea, what can be a problem in this USB connection, and what I can try to solve this, maybe to connect instruments with MIDI cable?
Thank you for your attention.

I returned USB cable, but a new one. After 10. days of testing (playing like MIDI controller to Kronos) I didn't have any restarting of Kurzweil OS. I hope that will be like that, in future. It is very strange that first USB cable was guilty for OS restarting (it was new, and it didn't suffered from any kind of force, which can cause his dysfunction) but who knows, maybe some fabric bug.
Thanks for your attention.

Sadly I have to say, that I have OS restarting again, last night, after about 1h 30' of playing. I was start to be quite sure, that USB cable caused this problem, but I was wrong. After 18. days of every day playing (without OS restarting) I have a same problem again. Any suggestions will be very appreciate. Thanks in advance.

Take it back to service would be my solution.

Hello,
Thanks for your reply. Keyboard was not in service, anymore. What I can do, to find source of problem by myself?
Regards,

Hello Wildbill,
Thanks for your reply. Did you have some similar experience (with OS restarting) with your instrument?

No.
But I did have some problems with the usb on my le6.
Took it apart and some of the wires looked really flimsy and loose, so I wouldn't be surprised if it was a simple wire problem. A loose connection is enough to cause an intermittent problem.
Maybe not something you would try to fix yourself.

Wildbill,
Thank you very much, for your very clever suggestion, I really appreciate it. I have some problems to bring keyboard to service, but maybe it is a best way to do it so. Thank you very much again, and I wish you all best.
Regards,

Pedja.
