Electron Keyboard Cable

Post by tomlinson » Sat Oct 17, 2020 9:36 pm

Hi,

Does anyone have a spare Electron keyboard ribbon cable with connector? If so please let me know.

Else, can those blue connectors be purchased anywhere?

Thanks,
Ian

Hi Ian,

I have a spare donor keyboard in my spare parts stash the loft; let me have a look for it tomorrow. It's yours for the price of postage ;)

Hi Stuart,

That would be fantastic. Of course I’m more than happy to cover all time and expenses involved.

Have you managed to fix your Elk?.. Are there any parts you need?

Honestly, just cover the postage and I'm happy. Us Acorn nuts have to look out for each other :) I found the keyboard, looks like there has been some harvesting for a few keys which are missing but the ribbon cable looks good. I don't want to attempt to remove the cable in case I damage it, so I am happy to pass on the whole thing to you ;)

If you DM me your address I will get it into the post tomorrow and let you know how much it was after I've sent it.

Thank you for asking about the elk - she's in the great care of Dave H at the moment so will live again!

I was going to ask in the other thread about your Electron but sounds like I'm not the only one wondering how the patient is! :D
