It's an f122 left in a room of a house since 1983.
That doesn't look like dirt from usage; probably that area was more exposed to the elements than the rest of the keyboard.
Reasonable. Just hope the PCB is still positive, I havn't go that deep. Case is still in good condition except the dust as I can see. Will update as finished.depletedvespene wrote: ↑30 Mar 2020, 14:20WOAH.
That plate looks to be beyond saving, and makes me fear for the PCB as well. Is the case in one piece and unbroken? Could this keyboard be put back into service?
Worst case scenario, (case and) caps should be salvageable and cleanable, and would make for a great "before and after" pair of pics.
Interesting, unfortunately im not the discoverer, just a normal buyer who paid a nice price. Admittely no idea what's like inside under the keycaps before payment.
Maybe next time , never know what we'll find when wake up in the morning.
thanks, mike. love your g80-5k.mike52787 wrote: ↑02 Apr 2020, 17:04Ugh, that is truly disgusting. I have had boards come to me filled with hair, nail clippings and old food, but never quite to that degree. I really hope it's not too far gone to save. model Fs can really take a beating and keep working though, so I assume you would have no trouble getting it working. Good luck!
