Re: Zenith Z-150 (Black badge, SKCL Green Alps) [United States]

I've always wanted to own this board, but I want one that feels and looks very good and already have a board with very smooth greens.

Any further details about the board? Where did you get it? I know you said the switches feel pretty good but do you have other green alps to compare them to?

Re: another puzzling keyboard (plz help)

Does anyone know what type of switch this is? Looks like ADI inductive. I have a video coming out related to this soon, as it happens. Can I ask what keyboard you found it in? This is a photo from an ebay listing https://www.ebay.com/itm/113494841848 Seems to be from a vintage computer museum seller.

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

Can't find much except a brochure from 1983 about this terminal board. I think it was more of a budget system so I'm assuming foam and foil? https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Keyboard-Mechanical-Keyboard-Qume-Keyboard-See-Description-AS-IS/323336545405 https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/MloAAOSwNDZbQP~z/...

Re: Need help with Chicony KB-5152

Ha! Nice to see you here. I'm much more active on GH, but I figured I needed to show my face here if I wanted some good vintage board advice :) Don't worry about the converter cost. We'll get this thing working! I love the big F keys. I'm going to have to program them to something useful so I can ma...

Re: Need help with Chicony KB-5152

I just have a small hunch it's an electrolytic capacitor giving up or disconnected. I'd say to check them, but of course, check the others too. Will do. Can you help me understand the process? I mean, I can get my digital meter out and turn the knob around and poke at things, but I have no idea wha...

Re: Need help with Chicony KB-5152

It's definitely plugged in internally, I double checked. Also, the LEDs do light up when the computer first powers on. So it's getting power. I have it plugged into the PS2 port natively, just adapting from standard DIN to mini-DIN. I guess I'll bite the bullet and get a soarer's converter to see if...

Need help with Chicony KB-5152

So, here's the board. I got lucky with "making an offer" https://www.ebay.com/itm/Vintage-Chicony-5152AT-Keyboard-SKCL-Green-extremely-clean/183615956063?hash=item2ac05d245f:g:EukAAOSwVXdcK-bN:rk:7:pf:0 The switches are very nice. But I can't seem to get it to work on my computer. The board has an X...

NBM RT6671?

https://www.ebay.com/itm/143012503713?u ... fresh=true

Anyone know about this particular model? I'm guessing it's Hitek switches of some sort, but I cannot find anything about it. Seems to be in very nice shape.

Have a nice Monday, all!
