Apple 2e | issue with prompt and logo

Hi all,

I need your advice about this situation.

When the system starts the displayed logo is "Apple è*"  and the prompt is "è" -> see attached images.

But... if I start a program from diskette, the program works... if I go back to the system, the prompt is not what I expect "]"

 

What's wrong?

 

Some advice?

 

Grazie

Joseph

There should be a black

There should be a black rocker switch under the keyboard, on the bottom of the case. Flip it.  

You are using an "international" IIe, probably Italian, which has a character ROM with both ASCII and ISO-646-IT character sets. The switch flips between them at the hardware level. The ] glyph is replaced with é and several other code points are similarly swapped.
