I do not know what you call it but I am after the black plastic plate that holds all the keys/posts on an A500 keyboard. I need the type with the large "Return" key.

I need one that is not damaged, cracked or missing any little tabs (bits that hold the metal bars on the keys)

Thanks :)

He's not after any keys, just the large black plastic part of the keyboard, like the one here:

So you need the 94-key version. But which brand?
The common one is Mitsumi, the less common one is Samsung. The really improbable one is NMB, I assume you are not after that one.
(post a photo of your keyboard if in doubt - I assume the reason you want one is the existing base is somehow broken).

I have both a Mitsumi and a Samsung base, 94-keys versions, perfect condition. Yours for postage costs if you can't find anything more local to you.

:D

It is a Mitsumi, most common one. Controller board has a single membrane edge connector in white. Pretty sure its that one but will need to pull it out again to confirm 100%. There is evidence of something going on as one or two screws are missing and the bottom left has a crack, its clean break but god knows what happend to it?

Assuming by the state of the metal backplate, something has corroded and started acting up, keys not working etc.

Basically I bought a sickly A500 for next too nothing and felt sorry for it lol! So I am going to tidy it up a bit. Also need to get the agnus socket replaced.

I have asked a friend earlier but pretty sure he only has a1200 stuff.

Any rough idea what the postage might be to the uk?

Perhaps it used to be in possession of an angry German kid? :)
