Re: Problems with an Alps spacebar

Update: The problem returned after a while, but now i found the cause. Those bits of rubber (presumably meant to protect the tabs) had started to dissolve and was all sticky. I simply peeled them away and now the space bar seems to be working like it should.

Re: Problems with an Alps spacebar

Ok guys, got it to work. Don't know what i did different this time when reinstalling the spacebar, but it now it resets itself properly. My guess would be that i hadn't managed to fit the right part of the stabilizer properly into it's slot.

Re: Problems with an Alps spacebar

It is common for space bars to ride somewhat out of level, and nothing to worry about if it operates properly. Do make sure that the inserts that hold the wire are seated properly, and you can straighten the wire if it is bent. It does not though, you cant press the right side of it because it's "a...

Problems with an Alps spacebar

(Realized i might have posted this in the wrong section, hopefully its not to big of an issue) The board in question is one of the original Dell AT102's with salmon alps (first picture is from prior to me cleaning it). Most of the board works great, but there is something wrong with the spacebar. DS...

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

Here is a weird one. It's an AT-style board that once belonged to a Bondwell Pro 28 with what i think is an Estonian layout (or some weird hybrid one, can't think of any other language that uses å, ä, ö, and ü but no other umlauts). Label on the back says nothing beyond it being made in 1987. selle...

Re: IDENTIFY THE KEYBOARD thread

The wiki shows a very similar Canon board as having white Alps, so I think it's safe to say it's probably white Alps. I'd get the brown Alps boards regardless. Hell, if they're cheap and you're not too interested in it, I may consider buying one from you. Sadly i forgot to check the auction date fo...

Any idea what sort of keyboard the Ericsson PC came with? It was released in 1985 and is AT compatible. Doesn't look like it would be their own RMD 973.

Re: Help with fixing a rubber dome board (Probably the controller)

Not sure how i would be able to test this theory though without bypassing the connection entirely with a wire. As a first attempt, you could just reflow the solder attached to that pin, in case it's just a flaky/marginal connection. Could try. Don't have access to a heat gun right now though, and i...

Re: Help with fixing a rubber dome board (Probably the controller)

So naturally my attention turned to the controller and and whether it might not have proper contact with the board.
