Keyboard problem in my Plus.

<< < (3/4) > >>

At some point it would be nice to do something more permanent to our keyboards, like either a proper PS2 adapter or a substitution for a compatible mechanical one (although this would be quite expensive). Another option would be to try to produce new good quality membranes, Spectrum people already have them :)

PS2 : i've got one  ;) , but I do not consider it as a proper replacement, or you will need to add sticker to the key so it match the original CPC layout. My current solution involve translating PS2 mapping to CPC mapping and have some limitation.
Mechanical : why not, but this will be expensive.
New membrane : as soon as there is a market -> Keyboard Membranes

In my case, I would go for a mechanical solution all the way, and I am ready to support this if something else is in. Problem is that different CPCs have different keyboards and we would have to make quite a few versions. Regarding new membranes or a proper adapter, I would support this right away too  :D . In summary, count with me for whatever approach you would like to take!

Let´s see if this works... a good cleaning, some masking tape, some silver...  :D

And here it is! It will not win a beauty contest (particularly on the sides) but it works very well and it is probably much more sturdy and conductive than in before  :) I will order a couple of spare membranes, anyway.

Since the computer was already open, I cleaned all the connectors with a proper cleaner, specially the ones for the keyboard.

BTW, I discovered that the problem was a bit more complicate than it seemed. So, the numbers not working were due to the membrane BUT the G not working was because I had the mouse adapter connected in the second port for the joystick. Everything is fine using the first port  :picard2:
