Taking the G2 apart is indeed quite straight forward, but not everybody has the experience. So, here's how to do it if you need to repair something on the keyboard, the main board ( Shocked ) or the physical outs.

01 Unplug device and lay it down on a soft cover. A floral design helps to keep the spirit up.

02 Unscrew the two marked screws on the bottom. These screws attach the red metal top to the bottom of the black chassis.

03 Unscrew the five marked screws on the back. These screws attach the red metal top to the back of the black chassis.

04 Unscrew the front screw on the left side.

05 Unscrew the front screw on the right side. These screws attach the red metal top to the sides of the black chassis.

06 These 9 screws are all the same. Put them somewhere where you will find them later!

07 Now you can lift the red metal top up. How very orderly! Beautiful!

08 The makro level components of the synth

09 Note that these components are all connected to the mainboard:

1: Microphone Input
2: Pitch & Mod Wheel
3: Keyboard 1
4: Front Panel
5: Power
6: Keyboard 2

Note also that
4: blue is on the left side
5: blue is on the top side
6: red is on the bottom side

10 Unplug the two cables from mainboard to keyboard

11 Unscrew the 10 marked screws on the bottom. These are longer than the earlier ones.

12 Carefully lift the bottom up and you can see the keyboard...

13 ... which you can now put aside. Note that the two ribbon cables are still attached to it. And the beautiful blanket.

14 Turning the G2 around again this it what it looks like now.

15 Unplug the remaining four cables: Microphone input, wheels, power and front panel

Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

16 Unscrew the six small screws under the MIDI connections on the back side. You don't have to unscrew the ones at the microphone input if you don't need to work there.

17 Carefully unscrew the nuts and washers around the jack outputs. Do be careful or you ruin the beautiful black paint on the back and everybody will see it.

18 Back inside unscrew the five screws holding the mainboard to the bottom. If you have an extension card, carefully remove the extension card and remove the spacers as well.

19 Extension card gone

20 The spacers for the extension card.

21 Now the mainboard is gone, too.

Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

22 The empty carcass of the G2 and free access to the physical outputs, the keyboard and the main board.

Posted Image, might have been reduced in size. Click Image to view fullscreen.

To put it all back together, just go the reverse order. None of the screws have to be screwed back on very hard, especially not the screws for the keyboard!

Good luck!!
