Hello all,

Just got myself a second hand A500. Everything is in good order, and almost ready to rock. However, some of the keys do not have their springs underneath, and this causes the keys to lay flat in their sockets and harder to use. If anyone knows where to get these springs, or even ones that are similar and do the job, by all means plonk a message down.

Thanks

Hi Blackadder & welcome to AmiBay! :D

Could you please update your profile to reflect location? This will give prospective traders a better idea WRT postage options, cost, possible drop-offs/pick-ups, etc.

Hey FB, I see you are a big cheese right across the Aminet :mrgreen: Thanks for the tip mate.

Zetr0, unfortunately I am in Australia. The spring types are metal. I have looked through a few old PC keyboards and it seems they don't use these kinds of springs, damn them and their progress!

You the man, man. Thanks for the package, I will actually be able to do a few constructive things when it arrives :!:

Thanks again FB. You shouldn't have wasted money on express post though, seriously. Some lucky lady will take advantage of you one day and then where will you be? :LOL:

Springs anyone?

A 500g Express satchel is pretty much the same cost as regular small packages :wink:
