Hi all,
I've just joined the forum as I've got a Amstrad CPC 464 coming from ebay.     It looks in quite good condition, however it is missing the I key.
Does anyone know where I could buy a key?  and whatever spring etc. it needs to work.
Many thanks
Peter

Yes, as @xesrjb says, there are 2 versions of 464 keyboard.


Ps, welcome to the forums.  :D

Thanks for the replies.   I've learnt something new already, I had no idea there was more than one type of keyboard.
The keyboard is pictured below :

Eagerly waiting to see if a link will be provided where spareparts for cpc464 can be purchased.

Not to worry, thank you anyway.

I'm still yet to find anywhere that will sell me a replacement key.    I'm determined to find one though - seems to be loads around for the Commodore 64 but not the Amstrad.

Thanks Angelcaio.      I don't know anyone who has got a 3D printer but the key does look good.
