I got a new LCD board, and things are fine. Apparently by plugging
the cable in backward I shorted something on the board such that
it would keep the QS8 from working at all, even when the cable was
returned to the correct orientation.
I'm in Italy at present, and can recommend www.masterservice.tk
if you need Alesis parts here. They sent the board COD, it arrived
in just a few days. It didn't cost much more than the $59 they want
for it in the states. There are posts in this archive that give the
correct pinout for the QS8 14 pin display cable, and describe how
you can save a few bucks by wiring up a generic LCD display.
