Hi everybody. I've got an Atari 400 with a keyboard that doesn't register 2,W,S,X, and Shift. I already swapped the 4051 and POKEY chip with known working ones so that isn't the issue. I did plug in a fully working keyboard from another unit and it worked fine in it. I was looking through old threads and found recommendations for myatari.com. It looks like the site is down for maintenance though. I'm not sure how long that has been offline. Does anybody here know if these are available anywhere else? Thanks guys. You've been a great help to me.

B&C doesn't have his price list published at this time, but you can email and you'll eventually get a response with availability and price. (Could be a week or two)

I know from correspondence with him this summer he has replacement 400 membranes, so it's possible he has an underlying keyboard too...

Those keys are all on the same connection to the 4051 chip, it could also be a bad solder joint or broken lead in the keyboard ribbon cable.
