Repairing a QS8 after a fall

Anyone else experienced this scenario: Crowded stage, rushing to tear down equipment, bad grip,
synth dropped on the floor...

I dropped my QS8 yesterday--the power supply end of the synth hit the floor while I was still holding the
other end. Everything about the keyboard appears to be working normally, but I've noticed that it does
not feel as sturdy now. For example, while it is sitting on the stand, I can lift up one corner and the
case will "twist" while the other 3 corners still sit on the stand. I'm guessing that an internal brace of
some sort has come loose or broken. Here are my questions:

1) Has anyone experienced this problem? How did you remedy it?

2) Do you have knowledge of the internals of the QS8 and can surmize what has happened and how
difficult it would be to fix?

Although I'm reasonably proficient at tinkering with these sort of things, I'm not too anxious to tear
open something that is still under warranty. If a warranty problem does arise, I don't want to have
voided my warranty by opening the case. (Will that void an Alesis warranty?) This synth is moved
a few times a week.

Thanks in advance for your input!
