Yesterday I opened up my MS20 Mini for the first time so I can clean a couple of dirty knobs. First, I took off the back cover and then I removed carefully the keyboard pin-clip to make some space in there. I did my job, and at the end I reconnected the keyboard again and screwed back the cover. Now, when you turn on the machine, apply some sustain and give some volume to the oscillators, it starts producing sound without pressing any key on the keyboard. Keyboard does not respond. If I connect something into TRIG IN it stops like it is supposed to do. If I unplug the keyboard pin-clip, it remains the same. Things I've tried:

1) Placed a screwdriver on the small PCB where the keyboard connects (little part where USB, MIDI etc are mounted), by joining 2 pins together. Sound stops so this part is alive.

2) Switched cable sides. Remains the same

3) Applied some contact cleaner to the pins, still nothing.

4) Unplugged and re-plugged carefully the cable over 90 times but nothing.

5) Checked for bent pins or inputs, everything is damn straight.

I'm so sad about it. It turned me down the whole weekend... I'm so desperate. Any help is appreciated.
