Ridicule followed by help is welcome. I took apart my Virus TI 2 because something was rattling around in there. Thankfully I put it back together and it works just fine.
I have taken photos of the two spare parts. They look like metallic brackets for support:
1) Does anyone know exactly where they belong?
2) Does anyone have a schematic of the interior of the virus?
Attached photos of the parts.
Possibly related: The black keys around the middle of the keyboard now have a clacking sound, as if they are colliding with bare metal on down-press. It does not affect dynamics or after-touch, but it may be related to these pieces? Or it is related to not fully screwing in the screws on the back which secure the key-bed in place. Comment or suggestion on this is welcome, if you may have an idea.
I've cared for this TI for 8 years now, and it has survived many live performances. So I am not mistreating my prized instrument. However please feel free to shake your head and laugh at this.
