Re: [Restoration] IBM 4704 F77 FINISHED

Alright guys, the post is finished. No more edits from now to the future about this keyboard. I will use it as it is, I won't change its original paint. Perhaps in the future, if the original logic board dies I will replace it with an XWhatSit one. If you need help with any 4704 keyboard or just wan...

Re: HELP with IBM M122 Conversion

I solved this problem using the QMK firmware, so.. just try that and I'm sure that it'll work. Also, try to put all the switches low except the 8th, put it high.
Now I have some problems with the RIGHT SHIFT key, I can't insert it properly in the keyboard, it gets stuck.

Re: HELP with IBM M122 Conversion

Can you confirm if that you're plugging the keyboard into the converter before plugging the converter into the PC? Do you know if you're using TMK configured for "interrupt" mode? It may also be worth trying USART and Busy/Wait. 1) Yes sure, the keyboard is connected to the converter and then to th...

Re: HELP with IBM M122 Conversion

There's a discussion here that involves removing a jumper from the board inside the case https://deskthority.net/viewtopic.php?t=22168 Not sure how many varieties of M122 there are, so I don't know if applies to your situation.

Yes, the connections are correct. Also, I tested a second logic board from another M122 and same error. I'm using Hasu's firmware.

When you say hasu's firmware, are you referring to his AT converter or his Terminal converter? When you plug in the keyboard with Soarer's, does it show which keyset the board is recognized? 1) I'm referring to his Terminal converter. 2) No, when I connect the keyboard to the pc using the Soarer's ...

Re: [Tutorial] Cheapest IBM 4704 Keyboard USB Conversion

Yup, TMK speaks almost everything, 4704 included. I remember running this when I first got my Kishsaver and Hasu first supported them. I consider Xwhatsit's controller an upgrade, though, as I never liked the 4704's original cable, or its bulky end, and Xwhatsit's GUI worked well before Unimap. Now...
