Looking for the right arrow key for an A600, and probably the plunger that it clips to. I'll take a whole keyboard as well, preferrably a US setup.

Thanks,

Brian

Re: WTB: Amiga 600 Keyboard

Now I'm looking just for an entire keyboard since I broke one of mine. vI broke my A600 keyboard by taking it out of the case too many times and I killed the ribbon connector. I've tried the 'trim' trick and nothing. I ordered a new one from Airey on Ebay, but it's for the 'other' model 600 (didn't know C= had different revisions).

So.. I'm looking for a A600 keyboard in white shape or a 'white' colored membrane to replace mine with. I don't care if it's a UK, US or whatever keyboard, I just want it to work. I don't mind paying a bit of shipping from overseas. I just want my poor 600 to work again.

I'm sorry you're having so much trouble finding a keyboard for your machine. :( Is this for the A600 I sold you or did you already have another A600? I've been looking for a full system since I sold that but haven't had much luck.

Good luck with your search!

Nah, it wasn't that one. I had a PAL 600 as well in perfect shape til I .. well ripped the keyboard connector off. I used a C128's keys for the arrow keys on the US one ;)

Really? A C128 key fit properly? I had no idea that would work! :D The funny thing is that my main non-Amiga Commodore system is a C128. Never thought about cross-compatibility from an 8-Bit to 16-Bit computer's keyboard.

Trust me, you're not the only person who's tore up a perfectly good piece of hardware!

Ciao!

It doesn't fit 'as is', but if you rip out the plunger from a 128, it fits perfectly on the 600's keyboard and the keycap fits perfectly on it ;) It looks a bit strange, but it works.

That is pretty damn cool in itself. Maybe I should do that across the board on that 600.

I agree. Adds a unique look to the A600.
