Hello,

I'm looking for an A4000T keyboard with Spanish layout. I think A4000T its compatible with A2000 keyboards.

Greetings

And so are the A3000 units, too. :)

Do you know if the internal keyboard membrane is compatible between differents Amiga models?

And the keys?

The a4000 membrane is the same than the a500?

And the keys?

Thank you

You need an A4KD or a late A3KD/T keyboard if you want a genuine match for the A4KT. The design of the A2K KB does not have the grooves in the upper face & is smooth all over. ;)

The only genuine match for the A4000T is the A4000T keyboard, or the A4000D unit with the cable replaced.

A3000 units are beige (I have one to prove), A4000 ones are immaculate white.

But if Jesusmdc wants only a functional unit, any from A2/3000 units will work.

Of course, A4000T units will also work...;)

About the A500 membrane: yes and no.

You need to find an A500 with the correct membrane. The right one have only one connector. They frequently come by with the latest A500 units, so don't waste your time seeking for ancient A500 units with red power LED.

Thank you rkauer,

Then I will search for an A500+ keyboard.

If i found it, can I replace some keys in the A4000T keyboard with the A500 keys?

I know where to buy a new A1200 spanish keyboard. Can I get the keys from this keyboard for the A4000T?

Thank you

Yes, they will fit nicely.

You can make a "Frankenstein" with the A4000 keyboard case, A500 membrane and A1200 keycaps.

Remember to replace the A1200 ones with the now defunct A500 caps.

The membrane is the same for all languajes?

My idea is to build a "new" A4000 keyboard with:

-A new A1200 Spanish Keyboard
-An A500+ membrane from an UK keyboard (I dont find A500 plus in Spain).
-Replace the A4000 membrane with the A500 plus.
-Replace the A4000 keys with the A1200 ones.

Membranes and keycaps are universal.

But please don't trash all the bits after done the healing in the A4k keyboard.

Sell or give away (the recycle bin in this very forum is for that!) the remaining items. Every now and then people may need one of those parts to heal a sick Amiga.

He could do the re-cycle bin bin if he was an "AmiBayer". ;)

Sorry, but I have no powers to do it. If jesusmdc wants access he must ask a senior moderator (Merlin/Harrison/Zetr0/AndyLandy/TheCorfiot).

I'll ask him.

Thanks ;)
