Teletype keyboard replacement

I’m pretty sure my keyboard bit the dust after a rogue beverage had it’s way with it. Really a small spill, but seemingly right into the keybed … not on the teletype itself though, awesome. When I turned the teletype on the next time a few keys wouldn’t work, then I unplugged and replugged the whole board and it stopped working altogether. The keyboard no longer works on my mac either, so I’m guessing that’s the problem. I did try a mac usb keyboard on the teletype with no luck, should that be concerning?

Can a replacement of these keyboards be bought somewhere else or separately through the store @tehn?

[/quote]i’m not an expert but, if that mac kb works with other devices, yes

i’m curious to hear what brian has to say tho

You need a keyboard that doesn’t have a builtin USB hub, as far as I know all Mac wired keyboards include a hub.

edit: has anyone ever tried one of the non-Bluetooth wireless dongles to connect a keyboard?

Yea it is one w/ a hub, so hopefully this is the issue occurring with that

The teletype is running commands from the triggers without a problem

I don’t think I have a keyboards around w/o a hub though, so will need to get one

Quick trip into amazon.

This looks right, right?

I would love to be able to use one of those super slim wireless apple keyboards!

actually my previous post was made in ignorance

I’ve used my tt keyboard with my mac mini but imagined it was the other way around

that looks spot on @tambouri

I’m pretty sure they use Bluetooth so won’t work.

Anyone got a Logitech wireless keyboard and the included USB dongle, that might as the dongle should just appear as a normal HID keyboard.

Yes, I once tried a wireless numpad. To my surprise it would connect and I could trigger my scripts! Next time though, I couldn’t make it to work. Then I gave up and didn’t bother again. Reminds me a bit of the usb stick issue (?)

Amazon replacement arrived, and all is well! thanks for all advice/info
