Atari 800 XL Mitsumi replacement Key spare part

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I'm looking for a spare part key complete set for my Atari 800 XL. I need the DELETE key for a Mitsumi keyboard model. Need the keycap, the plastic plunger and the spring. Need too the metal plate from the function key for other XL but this can be from any model as I just need the metal cap. I have the plastic keycap without the metal part. Anyone can help me?? This are the pictures of my 800 XL. Thanks!

Whilst I can't help directly and I'm not sure where you are based, I did see this on ebay UK:

 

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/143991343339

 

This is per key far as I understand. 

 

Might be worth you contacting them. 

 

Or buy a broken XL for parts. 

 

You can tell by looking at the keyboard in pics if it is the mitsumi one

 

Also see here:

 

 

 

Good luck.

Thanks for your reply but this models, and the below too, are not Mitsumi compatible :(

Sorry I don't have an 6/800XL Mitsumi here.  They are rare.

Maybe I can get a not so rare, cut inside and try to do something on my 3d Printer as a plunger.

... You could, but may not work. Or check out the ebay guys. 😊

I went through 20 XL k/bs and only found one Mitsumi. It is a hand-made unit that I don't want to sell or break up. Can't you bolt-in a different k/b?

$12.75 per key, yeah they can keep it, I'd whittle one out of wood before I'd do that crap

more crazy crap, make an offer perhaps at a normal price like any other key on any other computer... use the OBO button

What is your point?

Or best offer, is a point... 12.75 is ridiculous... that's another point.

 

You can also explore the others routes outlined among the threads, such as 3D prints, other sources, possible crossover use of switches and keys used on other systems.  Best of luck

 

Swapping out to a different keyboard is also a viable suggestion.
