Re: Xwhatsit controller for IBM Model F XT

It could be bad caps. The first thing to blame on old electronics not working is often electrolytic caps. Even worse since this is capacitive sensing in itself. Checking of capacitors a possible only if complete remove it. Brocken switches can blocked work of electronic? Tonight i'm ordering five a...

What about it doesn't work?
I don’t know what exactly does not work there. I changed three converters.
The keyboard worked for 8 hours, and then stopped without any warning.
The only thing that’s wrong is that three switches are broken (my bad).

Re: IBM model F XT not working suddenly

[/quote] When you say "ringing sound" do you mean a sort of ping sound on every key or is the sound only heard on certain keys? Also double check the continuity of all the DIN's cables wires beyond that I would say it is something that has gone on the original PCB. [/quote] This sound on any button....

Re: Xwhatsit controller for IBM Model F XT

Because you're gonna snap off the original? It's non-detachable. That's the only reason the XT isn't compatible. https://deskthority.net/wiki/images/5/5a/IBM_Model_F_XT_Open_Bottom.png https://deskthority.net/wiki/IBM_Personal_Computer_keyboard Is it possible any chance to replace a defective part?...

Re: IBM model F XT not working suddenly

From what I understood from your post - your keyboard is unresponsive even after switching two different soarer's converters. The keyboard did work before you mention. So first of all stop disassembling the keyboard and putting it back on. That's not the problem. You only risk destroying the flippe...

Re: IBM model F XT not working suddenly

The converter is not responding to hid_listen therefore the converter is broken. What kind of converter are you using? I don’t mean Soarer’s software running on it. But what hardware, and where physically. From ebay seller aka tinkerboy.xyz https://www.ebay.com/itm/XT-AT-Keyboard-To-USB-Soarers-Con...

Re: IBM model F XT not working suddenly

5 times I disassembled and assembled the keyboard. The ground wire was hooked to the right bolt holding the rear cover. Nothing. Give it in for repair? I still hope that I made some elementary mistake, software or mechanical. Well, or this will be the second topic about a disabled IBM keyboard that ...

The converter is dead. Or just the USB cable.
How can I check what doesn't work?
I have no other converter, no other keyboard. In our country, in my opinion, there are no such things.
And I have already made positive reviews for both sellers on ebay.
