Does anyone have any advice or resources for repairing a Nord Modular G1 Keyboard? Specifically, addressing intermittent response from button presses and unresponsive keyboard keys?

So I bought contact cleaner and opened her up. It was fairly straight forward…
1. Take the external screws on the sides, back, and one underside
2. Detach the top panel controller from the main board
3. Remove all the knob covers
4. Unscrew the controller board from the top panel
5. Push in the long sides of the buttons to pull them out
6. Clean the metal contacts (in my case I used a spray cleaner. Probably not ideal, but it's what I had)
7. Go back the way you came, basically

I also cleaned the keyboard contacts and did the pencil trick, seems to work as all the keys are now responsive. I'll have to open up my Alpha Juno and ESQ1 and do the same thing…

If anyone has any specific questions, let me know, but it was pretty easy all in all. Unfortunately I didn't take any pictures.
