Mega STE Keyboard Switch

Postby double-decca » Sun Apr 22, 2018 8:40 am

Hi,

The F10 key on my Mega STE has a broken keyboard stalk is broken. This which is the part the Key Cap locates on.

I have dismantled the keyboard easily. The keyboard F10 key internal switch part that presses onto the Mylar membrane has broken in the Key Cap.

See photo:

I have searched on Ebay and internet. No luck, does anyone know where I can get a replacement Switch.

I may have a spare stem, but i don't have a spare F10 key

I'd try to get the broken bit out and use the key you have

Do you have the rubber spring that makes the key bounce back up? as i don't

Hi,

Sorry for the delay in replying.

I have been using a Mega ST keyboard on the MSTE, which works OK. But I have been getting tbe Mega ST running. So need the keyboard on the Mega ST.

I have all the parts of the MSTE F10 key, including the rubber spring.

The mounting for the key cap on top of the white stem was broken into the Key Cap.

I have managed to remove the broken part in the Key Cap.

A new stem is required to repair the F10 key.

Best in the USA can supply the stem for $3 but they have a $30 minimum order.
Regards,

Derek
