Default HEEEELLPPP my keyboard...

Hi everybody,

finally I've received the A1200 I've bought on ebay, but here come the troubles:

everything appears to work fine except for the keyboard.

The keyboard does nothing when I press the keys, also the caps lock key seems to be dead.

But when I press the reset sequence CTRL + Amiga + Amiga the computer...
...well, resets and restart.

What the hell is going on???

I really can't figure out

Thank you in advance

Mauro

Either the green keyboard membrane is defective or the ribbon cable is not seated correctly in the white keyboard connector slot on the motherboard.

We sell brand new A1200 keyboards:

Ok!!! I've solved the problem, thank you again.

It was the green keyboard flat cable that wasn't fully pluged into the white connector
