In preparation for class demonstration of the Apple Lisa 2/10 I took some new photographs.
Minor repairs were needed. I had to take apart the keyboard because the space bar had dislodged from the little clips that hold it in place. I also replaced the MAC mouse with an original Lisa mouse. Note the new pictures have the original mouse.
I have had this machine for over 10 years and every so often I take it out for a few hours of use to keep the ICs "fresh". As part of testing I found that some keyboard keys have become unresponsive and will require replacement, similar to how the SOL-20 and others have crumbled pads. Click image for larger view.
My plan was to use LisaTerm to connect to a telnet BBS, but without the "z" and Enter keys I am pretty much stuck until I get the keyboard fixed. NOTE: Plugging a VT-100 keyboard into an Apple Lisa does not work....
I am going to attempt the method described in this VCFed thread, below:
