Hi,

I've got an old A500 with the molded commodore logo and I'm looking for an original style keyboard with the Commodore key instead of the left Amiga key to go with it. If they fit I'd be happy with just the key if anybody has a spare :bowdown:

Thanks,

TF

UPDATE - I found the correct keyboard type - I just need the Commodore Key now if anybody has one. Thanks.

Wouldn't be possible to replace the key only as they aren't the same mechanism. So a complete keyboard would be relevant only. I should have one and will have a look tomorrow for you :)

Indeed, the key caps fit in a different way, and the switches are totally different - individual key switches rather than a membrane approach.

I'd be interested in buying a whole C= keyboard that works too - but TF2000 naturally has first dibs here! :thumbsup:

Excellent, let me know if you find one.

Thanks.

some keys are missing and there is no connector @ the end of the cable :/
so for spare ONLY.

Hi.

Yes that's exactly what I'm looking for. Unfortunately I need a working keyboard as apparently the keys wont fit on the later keyboards (thanks to Jon & Chiark above for the info).

Thanks,

TF
