I have a wonderful FK-2002, but unfortunately, many key combinations are not registering, which makes it useless for me to use it. It's a Blue ALPS with 9/10 condition switches and I would love to have it an my main board.

I know the reason why these combinations don't work, it is due to the fact that the keyboard matrix is not capable of registering them as it an old model with an old mechanism for that. However, I was wondering if there is some way to make those key combinations working, even with a converter, or even yet by modding it.

Anyone have any ideas?

well, I know this will sound weird, but I'm using the Touchcursor, which by holding down the Spacebar you can use the jkliuonh keys as navigation keys. They work on all other keyboards I have except this one. So for instance these don't work at all:

SPACE+LSHIFT+L, SPACE+LSHIFT+J, SPACE+LSHIFT+U, SPACE+LSHIFT+N

They are crucial for me because I use editors all day (developing) and use these combination hundreds of times each day for selecting words left and right etc.
