Hi,

I've broken a keyboard ribbon like the attached, any idea where I can find one similar? It has 14 ways.

Thanks
Miguel

It would help if we knew what machine it was off.

Getting a new one made would be expensive as a one-off.

Unfortunately, there is not a very big TS 2048 community (I actually don't know of one). Same with the TS2068 - there is just not enough people needing these things to get them made; making the costs prohibitive

If you could find 50 people needing one, then it might be different.

Actually I dug out an old post I made on Facebook in 2014 to the TS2068 group - it seems the TS2068 uses the same conductive ribbon. Not sure on size, but basically in 4 years, you seem to be only the second person who needs one!
