I have a broken Kenesis freestyle solo keyboard. The keyboard is separated into two as shown here:

I cut the linking cable so I need a new one. Here is a picture of the cable:

It looks like a custom 20-conductor cable. Unless you can figure out the exact connector model so that you can wire your own replacement, you should consider contacting Kinesis for a replacement.

Could you also try joining the cable back together? Depending on how much a new connector is worth/if it is available, it may be worth an hour of your time with a multimeter and some electrical tape...

You can also use a soldering iron to join the wires. – Ivan Petrushev Apr 28 '10 at 6:02
If you don't know how to solder, take it by the nearest college's electrical engineering department (bring pizza to barter). – valbaca Apr 29 '10 at 5:40
