A500 keyboard bits needed

My first post

Last Wednesday I got two Amigas for free - an A500 and an A500 Plus! Both work fine, I've stripped them apart and cleaned them, and I removed the battery from the Plus.

But I need the following parts for the 500's keyboard: "Del" keycap, spring, and plunger. Some idiot's bashed it about, and without the spring the "Del" key is constantly pressed down!

Any help gratefully received...

Hello there,

Welcome to the EAB I am sure you will like it here.... theres plenty of mischeif arround to get into..

The spring and plunger you probly poach from any old 105 keyboard (old pentium era) perhaps even new ones its been a while since a I poped a new keyboard.

you could prolly pickup an A500 keyboard off Fleabay for arround £5 worse case scenario.

By the way, the rubber *plunger* return can be substituted for a regular spring.

anyways.... put your feet up and make yourself comfy theres lots to see and do.....

Somewhere I have a bag full of keycaps, rubber domes, and the contacts and plungers off a mitsumi PC keyboard, if there's still a need, or anyone else wants bits to repair ailing keyboards, PM me and I'll try to find them.

I need a model number for that mitsumi keyboard.. I've been trying to scour eBay for similar looking ones, but I can't remember what it was for sure.

Only a few models are good for amiga spare parts, but I'd like to find which. :-)

Sadly, I no longer have anything but the useful parts, the keyboard in question was gutted to hook up to a joystick for a friends mame cab, and the case thrown out.

It looked kind of like this one http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Computer-keybo...QQcmdZViewItem from memory, with the pen groove at the top, but I have no idea how many they made with that case style.

Hmm, that looks quite like the one I remember fixing a long time ago.

I guess I'll buy one and see. Thanks! :-)
