CPC6128 Sticky Keys ?
« on: 09:15, 07 April 18 »
Hi All


I just picked up a CPC6128 With sticky keys.


How do you fix Sticky keys (Mechanical)
Is there a Lube, ( Graphite, ??? )


Thanks     Ray

I grabbed some silicone lube spray from Bunnings, disassembled the keyboard, then sprayed it into all the key holes. And then spent ages mopping up the excess.


And the keyboard has felt brand new ever since.

I've got sticky keys on my 6128 too. I'll need to do some maintenance on that too soon.
CPC6128 modded with ABBA switch. External 5.25" floppy drive with side switch and Multiface 2. Now also sporting a joystick splitter and M4 WiFi board.

Would WD-40 work?

No, too aggressive and it's NOT a lubricant, it'll destroy the keys over time.
