Amiga 500 keyboard compatibility

  • So I bought amiga 500. It turned out to be rev 5 board and had the old style (amiga 1000) keyboard, with some keys missing and few broken swiches.

    I knew before buying that the keyboard would be broken, but assumed it would be easy repair. Just replace membrane and buy some caps.

    Now as I look how to repair amiga 1000 keyboard, and find out how expensive the swiches are :cursing:

    I'm thinking that its cheaper to buy new used keyboard.

    So the question :rolleyes: Are different revisions keyboards compatible with each other? Can I install for example rev 6 keyboard to rev 5 motherboard?

    Can't see why not but usually assuming something leads you to troubles :P
