repair 2 not very responsive Oric Atmos keyboard keys

Post by Majdachi » Fri Jun 24, 2016 8:49 pm

Hi all, today i got an Oric Atmos, and after testing the keyboard, i found number "3" and the "down arrow" buttons not responding quite fast, then i opened the computer and cleaned everything from inside the keyboard, not much difference:. Can someone give me any suggestions on what to do ? Thank you :.

You could try to apply a contact manually directly under the keyboard board, see if the problem is mechanical or electrical.
If the key registers immediately, then you know it's not a problem with the keyboard chip or VIA, more probably an issue with the keycap itself.
