You need to mention which of the 3 different keyboards you have.

Sonic also posted on Amibay about this. He has the 'microgramma' keyboard. This one came out after the PET style keyboard but before the one which uses C64 style pegs and keys.

It is the only keyboard I know which has 'suction cups' inside.

It may turn out to be easier for you to completely change the keyboard.

The type of keyboard you have and want to fix is a bit of a rarity. VIC-20s are perfectly electrically and physically compatible with C64 and C64c keyboards.

The keyboard on the left, second from the bottom appears to be a Eurostile keyboard. Eslapion said

He has the 'microgramma' keyboard. This one came out after the PET style keyboard but before the one which uses C64 style pegs and keys.


but the PET-style keyboard was the Microgramma one, the 'middle' one is the Eurostile.

Take a look at
http://sleepingelephant.com/denial/wiki/index.php?title=Keyboard

look carefully at the keys with words ('RESTORE', 'RETURN') the size of the borders varies noticeably.

I look at the typeface used on the return key and I would say yes.

You are correct. My mistake.

Let's hope they're the right ones. Eurostile keyboards are uncommon according to Giacomo's register, would be great for you to salvage one.

I managed to sms (txt) the seller with my pics i took with my Galaxy S5 and he assured me those are the keys in question and the plungers.. The plungers are exactly the same as mine, the C64 ones are much longer in length....
