Character Set is all messed/mixed up

Without a Keyboard Selection display, it is hard to determine what character set is on. This is what a line of type looks like starting from the left (middle row "A")

  • 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9: Enter a character to the position pointed by the cursor.
    • First press: enter the first character from a set of characters related to this button. Each subsequent press: you may change the entered character to the next one from this set.
    • 0: enter the space.
    • 1: enter a special character (punctuation marks, etc).
      • Up, Down, Left, Right after pressing 1 (special character entering mode): select the required character.
  • ENTER: confirm selection; finish text entering.
  • SUBTITLE: enter the period (for numeric mode); functions like button 1 (character mode).
  • CLEAR (<-): delete a character to the left of cursor.
  • SELECT (cap'num): switch input mode:
    • abc: character mode, small latin letters.
    • ABC: character mode, capital latin letters.

  • Up/Down: move the cursor to the start/end of a text line.
    • If the cursor is already in start/end position: select another user interface element which is under/over the current text entry area (only for dialogs with several elements of user interface; text changes are confirmed automatically).
  • POP UP MENU: show context menu with a list of available commands. They allow you to cut, copy and paste text using the clipboard, much like it is done on a PC.

Alt code 9791


Some software won't let you type those characters directly.

You can run "Character Map" to find the desired characters, type the codes into the "Characters to copy:" pane, click the Copy button, paste them to a line within your document, and copy/paste from that string as needed. The System character set has those characters.. they're not shown, but the Alt key combinations display the characters needed.

I was able to paste the character in this post, but I got the message "Please use English characters only" so I had to remove it before I could post.

How do I type my uk pound sign I have changed the language settings


The £ character is part of the font character set which changes when u change character sets.
If you want to stay with the language settings you have you must determine where the £ is in the character set.
My £ is produced when I enter ALT + 156. The character is in the upper 128 of characters. Number 156 to be exact. For the British KBD it is mapped to a key to make it a single keystoke.

Printer character very small , how to character normal


A character set is presented with which unscaled 2D molecular structural diagrams can be constructed. A minimal subset has been implemented in ROM on CBM microcomputers, whilst the complete set has been defined as a character font on an ICL PERQ computer. Structural diagrams have also been output on dot-matrix and daisy-wheel printers using appropriate software to print the special characters. The character set provides a simple means of displaying molecular structures on inexpensive microcomputers, on printers and on hardware offering user-definable character fonts.

Keyboard displaying double character


Could be several things. If dirty or under humid conditions, you might be able to just remove the keyboard and clean off the touch pad buttons. If not, I did a simple google search for the keyboard and found dozens for sale online for around 25 to 30 dollars.

Gateway Keyboard left shift key adds a pipe character


The driver will not fix the problem, as this is a mechanical problem. I had the same problem and was able to fix it. Instructions with pictures can be found at: http://lotus.kick-***.net/keyboard

Here are the instructions without the pictures:

I had a problem with my Gateway keyboard where whenver I pressed the left shift key, it type a pipe | (verticle line) character. This is the same character that is above the back slash character . I searched the internet and people were suggesting reloading drivers and apparently Gateway was suggesting a destructive reload of the hard drive. That's absolutely rediculous.
After some research, I determined that on some European style keyboards, the backslash/pipe key is between the left shift and the "Z" key. So, I removed the left shift key to experiment. The key simply pops off by sticking a screwdriver under it. (It is not necessary for you to do this).

When I used a little screwdriver to press on the center of the plastic (red arrow) I would get a proper shift key. However, when I pressed to the right (green arrow), I would get the backslash character. If I pushed at the red and green arrow together, I would get the pipe character.

Ah-hah! I determined the problem. The inside of the keyboard is a "universal" type and can be used with U.S. or Europeon keyboard layouts. For whatever reason, the left shift key was hitting both dots under the key. (The dots are visible in the pictures below.)
To resolve the problem, it is necessary to disassemble the keyboard. On the bottom of the keyboard is a bunch of screws. Remove all of the screws. If you have any rubber feet, there is probably screws under the rubber feet. The feet are just held on by sticky taope, so they peel right off.

Once all of the screws are removed the top and bottom halves seperate easily. The circuits stay in the bottom half of the keyboard, so set the top half of the keyboard to the side. The red arrow marks where the left shift key presses down.

Pull back the top layer and you will see the flexible circuits. These are also made up of multiple layers. When a key is pressed it pushes these layers together to complete the switch circuit. The red arrow marks the shift key. The green arrow marks the backslahs/pipe key for European style keyboards. The blue arrow is yet another key that is not used on U.S. keyboards.

Pull back the first layer of the switch circuit to expose the space between the circuit layers.

Place a small piece of electrical tape on the extra backslash/pipe circuit connection as marked by the red arrow.

Now simply reassemble the keyboard and that weird pipe character will never accidentally show up again.
