When I type a colon (e.g. for L 1 4 : CV I 0), TT instead prints a semicolon character ( ; ). I’ve had this happen several times before and random pressing of the Num Lock and Print Screen keys helped fix it. Now it happened again and I can’t get it back to working normally.
I’m using TT with firmware 1.2 and the original keyboard. Unplugging the keyboard in various ways doesn’t help - I’ve tried unplugging during operation, powering the module on without the keyboard, then plugging it in, etc. I don’t have another keyboard here, otherwise I’d try that. Power-cycling the case (which I made sure has enough power) and loading different scenes also don’t get rid of the issue.
Has anybody seen this before and has a reliable fix for this? Am I missing something obvious that’s an easy solution?
I also don’t have a USB A to A cable here to update / reinstall the firmware, but I guess getting one and then trying it would be an option?
yeah, this kind of behaviour sounds much more like a connection or keyboard issue rather than a firmware issue - i doubt reflashing firmware would make a difference. definitely try what’s suggested above first.
@Galapagoose@ermina@scanner_darkly thanks for the tips, will try these next. I suspect it’s the keyboard as well, perhaps the actual semicolon key - when I hold down shift and then continue to hold the semicolon key it will sometimes give me colons after a while, like so:
So I tried the keyboard on my regular computer, where the issue continued at first. I then tried using the right Shift key a couple of times and at some point it went back to working normally again, meaning I can type the colon. After plugging it back into TT it was back to semicolons instead of colons, but I again hit the right Shift key a couple of times and it eventually switched to working again. So I guess the issue persists, but it’s manageable at the moment. Anyway, thank you for everyone’s help!
