Cable request

Post by trixster » Thu Dec 05, 2019 9:49 am

Hi!

Anyone handy with a soldering iron who might consider making up a cable for me? I’d like an adapter to use my A1000 keyboard with my Amiga 3000.

The pinout for the connectors is here:

https://www.sacc.org/mouse-joy-keyb/a-keyboard.html

The 1000 keyboard uses a cheap rj22 style phone handset cable connector which is available on Amazon for about £2.50; 3000 port is 5pin DIN.

Here’s a link to a suitable cable:

Can pay with cash, beers and good karma :)

The easiest way to do this, is to buy a cable with a suitable RJ22 connector already fitted. Then cut the unwanted other connector off. Then prepare the cut cable end, then solder the 5 pin DIN plug to the cable.

I can do the above for you if you wish. I can probably supply the normal 180° 5 pin DIN plug (I can’t remember if the plugs I have have a black or grey outer). Mind, I best check to see if I do actually have any... I don’t think I have any surplus cables fitted with RJ22 connectors.

Are you going to supply the cable fitted with RJ22 connectors or do you want whoever does this to obtain the cable?

Alternatively there is always the January ABug meet-up where there will be members with hot soldering irons at the ready :wink:

Hi Mark, thanks for the reply.

If you’d be happy to make up a cable that would be ideal! Sadly I can’t make it to the next Abug as I’m away with work then :( I always seem to miss the various meets - one day I’ll make it to one :)

I’ll PM you.

Thanks
