Re: My "new" square badge Model M with unusual sticker inside

I have an IBM Model M silver badge with that blue sticker on the backplate. I believe mine is a part no. 1390136 but don't know for sure as it is missing it's rear label. It's UK layout with lock lights and the shiny rainbow back plate. I think the keyboard originally had its label but lost it over ...

Re: Replacement Foam Mat for IBM Model F Keyboards?

For all my IBM Model F restorations (XT, AT, F122) I use 3mm neoprene foam with great results. Yes it is harder to compress the plates but totally worth it as it feels even all over and not hollow in the middle rows. I have a video on my YouTube of my AT with the 3mm foam and a full floss mod check...

Re: IBM 3278 Beam Spring

He said if I was not going to do that, he would buy the board from me with 2000$ and continue from there. So we made a deal. I'm trying to sell the product through Ebay (maybe Reddit aswell) with ...

I had this exact problem with one of my Model F's. It was dust in the capacitive PCB.

After I opened the assembly and cleaned the capacitive PCB the problem went away.

Try blasting some compressed air down the key barrel it could be there's dirt stopping the flipper making contact to the membrane. Make sure the keys notch engages with the buckling spring. This is done by tilting the keyboard back as you install the key. If that still doesn't solve the problem than...

Omron switches can be incredibly unreliable so it could be that. Not necessarily anything to to with the cleaning you did.
