Amiga 500: main return key dead.

Just bought an Amiga 500 at a car boot sale yesterday. It works very well (and comes with Workbench disks, which is always good), all except one thing: the main return key. No matter how hard I...

In FULL:

Right-click in a window --> Redraw --> Clean Up, then Right-click --> Snapshot --> All

It's worth mentioning that this difference is due to Scalos and not due to WB3.x

Fixed completely - there was a jumper on the drive, removing it made it work. My guess is it was a cable select jumper which I guess the Amiga doesn't support - a similar thing is true with RISC OS.
