Adam hardware issues, printer, adamnet, keyboard, please advise.

Recommended Posts

Borrowed an ADAM for @mozzwald from @rkindig at VCF Midwest.

 

We tested it before borrowing, the tape drive needed work, but otherwise fine, it booted into smartwriter, printer worked keyboard worked, all good, we got an ADE hat from @hidehoo and called it done for now.

 

@mozzwald gets it home, and smartwriter comes up, but no response from keyboard, and printer is going clackety clack like crazy.

 

What could be going on? Video attached, please advise.

Keyboard key is stuck inside the keyboard or shorting out inside and holding the key down.  Unplug the keyboard and turn it on, it should come up with smartwriter and the printer quiet.  Then put a piece of paper in the printer and turn the ADAM on; if you can see the imprint or actual printed letter, that will be you clue as to which key is causing the problem

Printer kept doing it even when unplugged from memory console. Still working on it.
