Hi! I am wanting to make my first custom keyboard and I need some help... I have made a list on amazon (https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/7ZWUZN56P1R1?ref_=wl_share) of the parts I'm thinking of using and I just want some general advice and some criticism on what I can improve for it. *I am planning to make my own case for this
I recently restored and modded a vintage Mac Color Classic. Its ADB keyboard has a bunch of dead keys, and as it's the membrane version and not the switched version, I need a replacement keyboard. After being underwhelmed by the selection of ADB keyboards on eBay, I found someone making a new USB to ADB adapter and decided I'd really like to get a new compact mechanical keyboard and then swap the old Mac Univers font keycaps onto it. Oddly enough I found an image of pretty much exactly what I am going for- After looking through the available 60% keyboards though, it seems like every single keyboard is a metal base with RGB lights, so I end up paying $80 without even adding key switches. Are there any 60% keyboards available that DON'T have lights, since they would detract from the look anyway? I don't see any...
I've recently had issues with my Drop CTRL randomly disconnecting and reconnecting to my computer. Any ideas?
I've tried switching USB ports on my computer and the board, as well as dimming and turning off the RGB. Nothing works. Sometimes when it reconnects, my computer still does not seem to be receiving input.
I just updated my CTRL using the configurator and now my keyboard only stays on for approx 10 seconds before it turns off. If I let it plugged in, it makes the windows sound for unplugging and plugging in a peripheral. Any help would be appreciated .
