A friend of mine has a fully functional Kaypro II except he doesn't have a keyboard for the machine; so, right now it's basically useless :(

Is the Kaypro keyboard easy to find?, even a keyboard in bad shape could fit his needs (it's better than nothing).

Also, maybe anyone knows if there're keyboard interfaces for this machine, a PC keyboard is not as fancy as the original one; but if it works...

Try unplugging and reconnecting the keyboard; that fixed mine when it was acting up.

How does that help when he doesn't have a keyboard? :)

Indeed, there's NO keyboard at all :(

A partially functioning keyboard would be enough to do some testing to the machine, without it it's only sitting there.

There is a Kaypro Keyboard for sale on ebay. Better buy it while it is still available.

Can't find it..., maybe it doesn't have worldwide shipping?...or it was a "Buy it now" and it has been sold, of course...
