Schneider Cherry G81-3090SAQ

Greetings everyone. For sale is this Schneider G81-3090SAQ, with beautiful, Cherry original Greek dye-sub keycaps. I decided to let it go because I wasn't going to build something with it, and it would be better if it found a new home that would put it to good use. The board is in really good condit...

According to the wiki, wiki/IBM_6298389, it's a capacitive rubber dome keyboard, made in Japan. Seems quite interesting.

A fantastic find indeed! Would you mind loading your photos in DT so as to make sure they will not disappear (as was the case with imageshack some time ago when they decided to charge fees and delete non-paying accounts?) Meanwhile, I have added a reference to your board (including a link to this t...

Schneider MF2 G81-3090 SAQ

As I was idly browsing through local fora, I came across a classified with a picture of a board with familiar dark gray letters on its caps. I decided to jump on it immediately. I apologize for the horrible pictures beforehand IMG_20180919_134509.jpg And here it is! Original Cherry Greek dyesubs! Th...

Look, for 150€ it's just fine in terms of price (for a MOQ of 150 sets, it's 1€ more per set, nothing). It will be properly Greek then, and it certainly will attract more buyers. I don't think the uniformity will be anything noticeable. You could request a sample of the two (new mold ς vs. ç) and co...

Why not have a universal plate but different top parts with blockers? (like an HHKB top part, a WKL and a normal one). Wouldn't that be cheaper since you'd only have to produce one different part per set?

Filled out the form. The whole angle adjustment idea sold me on this one. I'd be down for a winkeyless full height version.

It's a keyboard off a Sanyo MBC-17PLUS, a budget late 80s PC. Other than that, there seems to be no information as to what it actually is. Only seen one more on some local classifieds that doesn't mention anything about the keyboard either (apart from that it's a "DIN keyboard")

I recall the steep price was the reason for the lack of interest in the original fullsize IC on geekhack. And this one is even more expensive, considering you'd need to buy a new PCB (or hack up an existing one). Still very pretty though.

I don't know if these will do, I suppose they are some sort of different Cherry MX RGB variation (?), but they have some off-white, translucent (as far as I can tell from the pictures) bottom housing. Cheaper than the all-clear housing ones too. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/10-Free-shipping-genui...

Is there any alternative to the milky Gateron housings? Are Cherry RGB switches available anywhere? The linked doyu studio shop only has about 20 left, which isn't enough for me sadly :( They are available on AliExpress stores, but the prices are too steep (at least for me, heh) for what they are. ...

The only currently produced ones are those with clear top and white bottom, which you can get on opticboards or AliExpress (I think Shenzen YMD store has them, not quite sure). I did find this listing on ebay with translucent milky housings, I don't know if it's some outdated picture or something, t...

So, I repaired the capacitors, and now that I hooked it up my DeskPro, it has its lights going on like a progress bar. Anyone know what that means?

I have verified it with a real PS/2 port and I got the same problem. So, yeah, it's the capacitors. Do you have any idea on where to find a replacement and how to replace them?

My adapter is this, passive, from the looks of it: http://goput.it/5mx.jpg As to what's wrong with it, I don't know either, I just presume it is faulty wiring, as your wiki article states The M2 is well known for electronics problems. The capacitors in the logic board are prone to failure, possibly ...

How do I open IBM Model M2?

Hello fellow mechanical keyboard enthusiasts. Recently I got ahold of what appears to be an IBM Model M2 (got that from a reverse image search), with Part. No. 1399070, Manufactured by Lexmark in the UK. From the sound of it, I have deducted that it's a spring-type mechanical. http://goput.it/6ik.jp...
