Having obtained a sample of both A500 keyboard membranes, can someone please send me an A600 keyboard and membrane - so that I can look into getting some of these made.

If there is more than one type of membrane, I could do with one of each, and maybe we could combine them.

Excellent - PM sent - although I am going to be short of finance until some of the A500 membranes sell...

AFAIK! and I am no expert at this and its probably already known, but there are two types of ribbon that I have stumbled upon.

1 x green

1 x blue

I willing to bet they are wired exactly the same as the keyboard layouts match. I have found the blue type feels better when typing (key switches etc) so im guessing different companies made them?

If a600 membranes can be made, you have a customer here :D

I have now heard back from the keyboard manufacturer - unfortunately, the green and blue A600 keyboard membranes cannot be combined to make it easier to produce.

I have however, now started a pre-order listing for each of the replacement blue and green membranes on sellmyretro - this will help to finance the production as it is only worthwhile getting 250 of each type made!
