The paint/coating on the mylar is somewhat fragile. I received an SX64 that the former owner tried to "repair" with silver-colored model paint. What a mess. Fortunately I had a spare KB I got from a defunct Commodore dealer. I never did find a way to repair the first keyboard. If anyone knows how to fix oxidized silver traces on mylar, I'd love to know how. I have a semi-dead Apple Mac keyboard with the same condition. This process is supposed to reduce oxidized silver back to silver metal... http://www.philamuseum.org/booklets/7_44_85_1.html?page=2 ... and I'm sure it works great for silverware and jewellery, but I have to be cautious trying it on what is essentially a silver-bearing paint that's been silkscreened onto a mylar back. If there's a paint-on product that one can use, I'd like to hear about that - I also have a damaged RCA terminal - the conductors on the keyboard flexicable were worn clean. -ethan Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing listReceived on 2012-05-08 16:00:44
