…or “have a nice key” 😉
Some time ago, I described my ZX 81 mods and repairs in a blog post. Unfortunately, the keyboard stopped working. So now we have a post -> #SHORTS – ZX 81 Keyboard membrane swap
I’ve decided to swap it with a new keyboard membrane this time. This is how it was done.
The connectors on the old membrane were too brittle.
I ordered the new membrane in one of eBay‘s stores and it arrived quickly. The quality is awesome!
I had to remove the old membrane first. I’ve used a hot-air gun to soften the old glue.
The remaining glue was cleaned using a piece of cloth and some hydrocarbon solvent.
Fitting a new membrane.
I’ve also added some nice rubber pads on the bottom 😉
This is it! ZX 81 works flawlessly now 🙂
