how to clean the enterprise?
« on: 2008.March.20. 11:54:33 »
what is the best way to clean the enterprise? There's stuff between the keys, joystick rubber etc.

not really visible normally, but when I take some high resolution photos, it is very obvious :)

You can screw down the upper parts of the keyboard, with the keys, joystick.
And you can wash with lukewarm water :-) soap or other not agressive cleaning things can be used. (Without break the warranty label)
If many stuff between the keys, you can easy remove all keys from their places, but be carefully: do not break the fixing bows!
The joystick is can be easy disassembled.
After all keys removed, you can wash anything.
When clean, lets dry it, and reassemble. Keyboard layout photo good idea for find the place of all keys :-)

Good idea to use silicone spray (can be bought in car shops for a plastic care), blow the downside of the keyboard top, to make lubrication for the keys. After this the keys can moving a very fine.

Maybe hoovering. First remove the brush from the end of the pipe of the vacuum-cleaner.
After "hoovering" you can cover a match-stick with some cotton-wool, plunge it into some water and using this particular instrument, you can remove the plunge.
(I don't know the English name but also thinner wooden stick exists. You can use it instead if the match-stick.)

Another possibility is to remove the keyboard-part from the computer box (if you are good at how to "disassemble" and "assemble" the computer). Then you can even take the keyboard into the shower (without keyboard-membrane).

Wow! Free puzzle game for Enterprise owners! Pity that cannot be emulated by PC emus. :lol:
As for Easter, cleaning the Enterprise: puzzle and sprinkle! No rabbits are allowed near the EP because it'll need recleaning. (And don't boil Easter eggs on the heatsink.)

But seriously: Happy Easter!
