Puoi pulire con un panno imbevuto di glassex , ma non spruizzarci il glassex direttamente altrimenti va da tutte le parti, lo spruzzi prima su un panno carta e poi pulisci. Meglio di tutto sarebbe staccare tasto pet tasto e lavare con acqua tiepida e un detergente , ma non ho mai avuto l'occasione di staccare i tasti singolarmente di questa tastiera, dunque non saprei dirtise e' una cosa da fare o da evitare.

Comment on Toshiba HX-10 64k (MSX) Keyboard PAD Fix. by Nicola https://www.nightfallcrew.com/16/12/2015/toshiba-hx-10-64k-msx-keyboard-pad-fix/comment-page-1/#comment-149135 Nicola Mon, 18 Mar 2019 00:07:34 +0000 http://www.nightfallcrew.com/?p=12108#comment-149135 Ciao! Ho appena acquistato in baia un Toshiba HX-10 e vorrei poterne sanificare la tastiera. Grazie a voi (http://www.nightfallcrew.com/07/11/2010/toshiba-msx-home-computer-hx-10/?lang=it&nggpage=2) ho visto che la parte superiore del corpo macchina può essere staccata dalla mainboard semplicemente sganciando i due connettori di colore arancione (uno é per la tastiera e l'altro é per i led). Fatto ciò mi chiedo cosa mi aspetta rimuovendo le due bacchette metalliche che fermano il pcb della tastiera (ci sono da rimuovere 8 viti): i tasti si sganceranno assieme ad altri particolari meccanici tipo mollette ecc.? Dalle vostre foto sembrerebbe che i tasti rimangano ben saldi al pcb e quindi non dovrei preoccuparmi di nulla: me lo confermate? Infine, vi chiedo cortesemente quali prodotti mi consigliereste per igienizzare la tastiera smontata. Infinite Grazie per l'aiuto!!! :) Ciao!

It's a cool looking mod even before the LED lights (which only made it look more AWESOME)! Ah well, ya snooze... ya lose. Shame the clear Commodore 64 case is no longer available.
