if you'd like to tinker with this silver 4/a, she can be yours


Recommended Posts

Hi there. With all the help I have received here on the forum, I feel like now it is my turn to reciprocate. To wit, I am offering a silver 4/a whose keyboard is mostly working, but does have issues. For example, the space bar won't advance, despite pressing it like 100 times. The machine may just a cleaning and/or reworking of traces, or a new inner replacement. But whatever is needed, it is almost surely out of my scope.  I don't have the power supply nor RF box, but I thought maybe someone could use it for any parts, or if you just feel like donning the Christopher Columbus hat and attempting to restore her to former glory. Here is a breakdown:




all letters and number keys

Alpha Lock key

Right side shift key


Not working:


Left side shift key

Space Bar

FCTN key


I can also report that visually I did get a crystal clear screen output when testing the monitor connection using that original huge RF box from my other system and a 1993 Sanyo TV. I didn't test the cart slot, nor the cassette port, so not 100% sure with those, but you might have a good chance.


...So in short, if you like to, and want to, tinker, she is yours. Just PM me if you're interested.

Thanks and happy holidays
