My Apple II+ hates me, or I got a bad one off E-Bay. :/
Currently, the keyboard is not working correctly. The 1 - 2 - A - S - CR - Space - won't type. And you can't do anything without a carriage return.
Does this behavior sound like an encoder chip? I pulled the keyboard, tested the cable between the encoder and the motherboard, which checked out well, and tried to seat the encoder chip. But it still fails with the same six keys. I tried testing the carriage return with an ohm meter and got something back, but the layout is hard for me to read. But since I got something back with the carriage return, I think it might be the encoder that went bad. Any ideas?
