I have an Atari XE Game System but the keyboard is not working.  I've replaced the mylar with a new one but still no luck.  Does anyone have a working Pokey Chip for sale as I'd like to try that next?

Hmmm, more common failure for the XEGS keyboard is either the cable, or a component on the little sub board inside.

I've done some other troubleshooting though I could not say for sure about the cable.  You can read all about it HERE
 

Any input is welcome.

I wish I could help you, but keep in mind if the keys are  shot but the audio is still good, try to make sure it gets into a pokey homebrew game
