With all the great recent keyboard discussion, I wonder if anyone here might be able to point me in the right direction… I recently dug out an Apple Extended II keyboard I had been storing for several years, and was hoping to use it. Unfortunately, a handful of keys don’t seem to work. Most I could work around except for the
D key, which is pretty important! I’ve prised off the keycap and tried removing the top plastic of the mechanism and re-seating the spring. No luck.
Does anyone have any advice on how I might be able to repair the non-functioning key? Even if I could swap the mechanism for the
D key with the working one from something like
F15. I have a soldering iron if necessary. I’d rather get this keyboard back in working order, it seems a waste to not be able to use it for the sake of 3–4 keys.
