Subject: Kaypro 4 keyboard
Ok, many, many thanks to the good people who got me boot disks for the
old K-4, it boots just fine. Now, only one teeny-weeny problem remains...
I discovered I don't have a working keyboard cable!
The K-4 keyboard conection is a 4-position modular. I tried an old terminal
(vt220 I think) keyboard cable I had laying around, then hacked it so the pins
were straight through (pin 1 to 1, etc., UNlike telephone handset cords) and
tried again. No go.
What are the pin assignments for this puppy? Is just one* of the pairs
reversed? are the inside and outside pairs swapped somewhere along the line?
Did I fry my keyboard on the first try? (if so, what did I fry? can I fix it?
does a kb like this exist anywhere else in creation?)
Thank you... (moan)
