Question about Kinesis KB133PC/QD Keyboard

6 Answers

I've got an older Kinesis Elite (similar to Advantage) and the cord has been flexed too often and now shorts. I know this because it was under warantee the last time it shorted and Kinesis replaced the cord. How can I repair or get it repaired?

    Your solution is nontechnical. The Elite cord is to a KEYBOARD; it carries multiple tiny electrical charges through multiple tiny, shielded, bundled wires. It is a specialized keyboard cord. Reread the original problem and/or find a tech to reply.

    As a keyboard cord contains as many wires as keys this solution might work if one had enough time and micro-soldering abilities. I can't do such soldering. I need to have the cord replaced. How can I have this done?

    You don't have knowledge of anyone doing cord replacement on these keyboards?

  • jmoonmail22 Feb 27, 2009

    The "shorts" likely consist of lost coverings allowing individual tiny wires in the bundled cord to touch so a multimeter continuity test wouldn't necessiarily reduce task.

Bring multimeter set it on the continuoty option and start testing the shorted wires and start attach it that would reduce the task of repairing.

You should be able to buy replacement leads from maplin or some other electrical supplier. if you tell them what connections it has they will possibly make one up for you if one is not available.

I have a 2000 olds alero. I'm having a problem with the ABS, and Traction Control System. I've scanned the ABS system,and it shows RF wheel speed sensor ckt open/ shorted. I checked all fuses


The EBCM is looking for 1040-1160 ohms in the ABS sensor circuit. Check the two wires between the sensor and the EBCM. The wires in the area under the fender are prone to breakage caused by the flexing and turning of the suspension.

The float/handle has a reversable position. You must periodically flip, change it so as to avoid this problem. I would reverse it each time I used it.

Kinesis MiniType Keyboard


you should be able to just snap it back on. unless you lost the plastic connector that connects the button to the keyboard. I wouldn't suggest super glue....it could get into the circuitry of the keyboard and the keyboard wont work at all.

Automatic Cord Rewinder is not rewinding anymore


I had the same problem - the power cord for my Hoover Elite Upright (U5507900) was stuck a few inches out and wouldn't go any further. But when I unscrewed the rewinding mechanism, the cord had clearly gotten twisted and partly buried under itself so after some work I was able to free it. Now it seems to be working fine, at least for the moment. Note that I had to use small screwdrivers to unscrew the cord rewinding compartment, like the kind of screwdrivers you use for computer repair.
HTH!
