I would really like to give my motif 6 a good air dusting but there are a lot of screws underneath so its not immediatly obvious which ones to undo for access to the innards - any suggestions please?

Thanks,

Geoff

Re: remove casing to airdust?

Leave it closed and use a vacuum cleaner on the outside of
all buttons and between the keys.
Use a small brush first and then, on full power, a narrow nozzle.
If that ain’t enough you’re ready for a real service at an authorised dealers’

;JOOP!

P.S.: I meant the gear .................

Re: remove casing to airdust?

Thanks; I’ll give it a good clean; by yr method but I really would like to open it too.
The background to this is that it’s been a bit temperamental recently and I want to make sure that it isn’t because of overheating, like might happen in a pc.  I live in a dusty house (heated by woodstove & surrounded by large wild garden, living with hairy dog & 3 cats, so I can never completely get rid of dust) and even though I try to cover my equipment sometimes I forget to and some dust will always get through anyway, no matter what precautions I take.
My nearest dealer is 100+ miles away and I don’t want to make that journey- twice- to do what must be reasonably simple!  I clean my pcs about once every three months, so the thought of going to see my dealer once or twice a yr ain’t very appealing. I imagine it’s a simple operation to blow out the dust - if I know the correct way to undo the casing!
Oh btw I have upgraded the firmware, few months ago, so I don’t think that’s the problem.

Re: remove casing to airdust?

My goodness, what has the firmware level to do with the mechanical parts???????

DO NOT OPEN IT, a motif is not a PC.
A PC has one or more fans that blow all dust through the case.
A Motif has not, all dust comes from above and can only fall between the keys.
The vacuum cleaner will reverse this easily.

Temperature? If your keys melt you won’t play a note anymore.
If your dealer is so far away, don’t take any risk of damaging the thing.

;JOOP!

DO OPEN IT!! Just remember to close it back!

a motif is not a PC.

Yes it is. It has keys; monitor; board; power supply ; a case, and can scroll through pages. so there.

If your dealer is so far away, don’t take any risk of damaging the thing.

No, just sit there and let it not work.

Here. This is for the es 8 but should give you confidence to enter into this *dangerous* realm.
