Apple IIe platinum reset switch

Hi folks,

I´ve finally got an Apple //e platinum - beautiful piece of hardware and fully functional except for the reset key, which does not work at all.

Anyone a suggestion for me how to fix that problem with talking the whole thing apart?

Thanks in advance.

Reset key works together with Ctrl key. Apart from that you should check keyboard cable (a separate wire/pin is dedicated to the reset signal), and don't forget the button itself...

Yes, I know about "Control-Reset". You really can't do much with your Apple if you didn't know how to reset the machine after finally reaching Oregon Wink

I have took the whole darn keyboard apart, removed a bucket full of dirt and cleaned the connections. Oh wonder, the key works again!

Thanks for the advice.
