Atari 800XL Issue with type 2 circuit board keyboard


Recommended Posts

I have a Atari 800XL,you have probably seen my video,some of the key don't work properly and some get stuck when you press them down.If I press "O" I have to wiggle it abit it get it to work,B and M are the same,If I press "BREAK" it works but gets stuck and slowly comes up,can I replace the keys with modern day keys cos they are soldered to the board or can I just get a more upto date keyboard with a membrane..?


I posted a new topic so I could put more detail into it.




Is any key switches that i can use now that I can replace them with..?

How about theses..? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/12x-Cherry-MX-Blue-Mechanical-Keyboard-Switches-/232056753938?hash=item3607a90f12:g:41cAAOSw~gRVivs7
