This might be the wrong place to post this, but I have a WYSE with the RJ11, and I'm only looking to convert it to PS/2. Can I do this by just hacking together an RJ11 and PS/2 cable, or do I need to do anything fancier?

Hello.
Help to solve my problem with the Wyse keyboard please.
There is a Wyse keyboard - part no:840362-04 and Arduino Pro Micro
I stitched an arduino your insertion of v1.20
Now at connection of Arduino in "Device manager" there are 2 more Keyboard HID devices, soldered Arduino conclusions according to your scheme, but the keyboard doesn't work.
Prompt please in what there can be a problem.
I apply screenshots.

Cable Brown - GND
Cable Orange - VCC
Cable Blue - Data
Cable Blue-White - Clock

Before connection of Arduino:


After connection of Arduino:


Connection to the keyboard:

Hello,

I have a 980478-01. Will this work for it? Also, the connector on mine looks like a filco modular on. Does anyone have a link to the pinout on this one?

thanks! I just want to make sure I'm doing the right thing before I start anything. ;D :thumb:

it was exactly like yours! I have a lot to thank you for posting that close up picture of the pinout. I was confused on soarer's guide saying that it was mirrored. here it is all working! Thank you Soarer and everyone!! vintage blacks feel awesome!

Hey, were you considering using that surface mount telephone jack in the background of your pictures as a converter box? Because that's exactly what I just did, and I swear I didn't notice it in your picture until after I built this one. Saw the boxes on clearance at the home improvement store for $0.99 and had the idea.

Hey man sorry to get back to you so late! Actually, I really wanted to house the Teensy inside the keyboard and just run the usb cable out. But, I realized that maybe the teensy shouldn't be mounted permanently, since, I have an IBM Model M that I want to Convert, I'm thinking of making a converter box for it. Still not sure if I want to keep it that way though, I still have leandren's R4 on the way. So many keyboards, so, little time. I might just reconsider this hobby :( It's burning through my wallet.

I revamped my telephone jack design. Here it is in case anyone is looking for inspiration.

Parts:

pro micro clone from ebay
desoldered 4p4c connector from a WYSE PCB
Short male micro USB to female mini USB cable for strain relief and quick detach option
button from old mouse for reset switch (pro micro doesn't have one like teensy does)
surface mount rj11 telephone jack
hot glue gun and glue
something to cut the plastic housing as needed (I used a small hacksaw blade, pliers, and dremel with cutoff wheel)
small wire (I used an old piece of cut up USB cable)

Had to cut some of the plastic from the inside of the phone jack housing to make things fit and used lots of hot glue to make everything stay in place. Probably could have made the wires a little shorter for better appearance but that would make everything harder to fit together. After a little modification, the 4p4c socket fit nicely where the rj11 jack was originally. I trimmed some of the rubber surround from the end of the USB adapter cable so that the female mini USB end would stick out through the hole a little bit.

Weird how my last reply was in the middle of the quote. I must've been sleepy at the time. This looks great. I might just give this a try when I get the time.

Some help here please.

I have loaded the WYSEvert v1.30 for atmega32u4 onto an Arduino Leonardo and hooked it up to what I believe is an 85, going by this post and my pcb has serial # 980062-01 also.


Here is what Hid_listen is outputting when powered up and the keys 'a', 'b' and 'c' are pressed:

Code: [Select]
WYSE...
ID: 00
Model: WY85


Keyboard ID: 0000
Code Set: 2 (extended)
Mode: AT/PS2

\4E +04 \4F +42 d04 d42
/4E -04 /4F -42 u04 u42
\5B +05 \5C +1F d05 d1F
/5B -05 /5C -1F u05 u1F
\13 +06 \14 +27 d06 d27
/13 -06 /14 -27 u06 u27

Is this normal?


27 May.
Was grappling with the reloading the firmware on, but eventually worked out the procedure and here is what Hid_listen produces:

Code: [Select]
Device disconnected.
Waiting for new device:............
Listening:
wEE

remaining: 007C


Keyboard ID: 0000
Code Set: 1
Mode: PC/XT

It is currently totally unresponsive to key presses.

NO, disregard as I have loaded it again and its back to what I originally posted: ID 00

After leaving it for a while, I have finally got it working and the unusual keys remapped, but I cannot figure out the caps/num/scroll lock leds.  I even tried to assemble the supplied led config but it fails at the first line.

Has anyone been able to configure the leds?

How did you wire your Teensy or Pro Micro?  I don't have any experience with the Wyse Soarer's converter, but I managed to get LED functionality for a Pro Micro Soarer's for PS2/XT/AT.  I looked the Wyse LED .sc file, and the wiring is the same for Soarer's PS2/XT/AT. 

Here's what worked for me, and may work for you.  I hooked up only the numlock LED, as I don't use scroll lock or capslock.  I used a Pro Micro.  For numlock, I used the A1 pin (corresponds to PF6).  If you are using a Teensy, it should be the F6 pin.  I used a prewired LED harness that I bought from eBay (http://www.ebay.com/itm/5PCs-3mm-Pre-wired-200mm-LED-Light-Lamp-Bulb-12V-Plastic-Bezel-Holder-8-Colors-/371742145681?var=&hash=item568d8efc91:m:m1IxS-6pOCgnzuqIC3ncqjg.  There was already an inline resistor in this harness.  I soldered the red wire (which leads to the anode) to the A1 pin and the black wire (cathode end) to one of the ground pins.  If you don't use the harness, then the wiring should be A1 - resistor - LED anode - LED cathode - ground pin.  The capslock and scroll lock LED should be the same with the corresponding microcontroller pin.

Just to be different, I am using an Arduino Leonardo which has the Atmega32u4 µController.
I haven't hooked up any leds yet, just attempting to compile the config first.

I have been compiling my configuration file for key remapping using the tools in Soarer's XT/AT/PS2/Terminal Converter (as he mentions it in the OP if this thread) but when I tried to do the same with the supplied led file (wyse_leds.sc), I had no success: error at line 1: invalid command.

led caps +PF5
led num +PF6
led scroll +PF7

As I was typing this up, I thought that I should try the tools in his Keyboard Controller firmware (also mentioned) to see if it would work.  Well f'k me, it does!!
So all I need to do is wire up the leds and I am finished.  I'll do that when I get home after work.

Thanks for replying ShawnMeg, you helped me realise where I was going wrong.

No worries.
I was initially compiling the configuration file using the tools from the XT/AT... Converter just for remapping the keys.  It wasn't until I introduced the LED commands that I wasn't able to assemble the file ( using scas.exe) without it throwing up errors.  I don't know why, as the XT/AT...Converter should have the capability AFAIK.

Anyway, for me the tools in the Keyboard Controller Firmware did the trick.

I'm not familiar with compiling, assembling, etc. the configuration file.  I simply create an .sc config file with a text editor, save it, and then drop and drag this file onto the scaswr.bat file.  I use Windows.  This makes things very easy to configure remapping, macros, function layers, etc.  According to the documentation, this method "... will assemble the text config and then write the resulting binary config to the converter, in a single step".

Haha, yeah, I seem to do everything the hard way: convert the .sc file to binary, then write it to the controller with scwr.
I will give scaswr a shot.

So you have to make a layout file if you want to change the layout from default. Save it as anything (I called mine wy30.sc) and put it in the same folder as scas (not necessary, but makes it easier), the "tools" folder.

So I have the file wy30.sc in the folder c:\kb\soarer_wyse\tools\wy30.sc

Then I navigate to the tools folder and run the following:
Code: [Select]
scas wy30.sc wy30.scbNow there is wy30.scb in the folder as well.
Then I run scwr to write it to the KB firmware
Code: [Select]
scwr wy30.scbSince you are in windows, you can combine the two steps with scaswr. This saves a lot of time if you have no errors in your layout file.
Code: [Select]
scaswr wy30.scb
If you are having trouble building a layout file from nothing, you can always pull the default file from the KB and use that.

Use scrd to read the current config and write it to a file on your computer
Code: [Select]
scrd wy30.scb
use scdis to disassemble the binary config file into a text file you can read and edit

Code: [Select]
scdis wy30.scb wy30.sc
open the file in notepad and take a look. This is actually really helpful for me 'cause I lost the original file I used, and so now I don't know what the layout is. looks like I have it set up for either qwerty or dvorak. This is the disassembled file I got back.

I've got a strange problem here with my WYSE PCE and Soarer's WYSE Converter v1.30.  This is the hid_listen output when I connect the keyboard:
Code: [Select]
WYSE...
ID: 00
Model: WY85

Keyboard ID: 0000
Code Set: 2 (extended)
Mode: AT/PS2

But I've got an 840358-01 (PCE), not a WY-85!  It still happily recognizes keypresses, but the keys are mapped all wrong.  Any ideas?  Is there a way to force it to use the PCE keymap?  I don't want to have to write a config.sc where I remap all the keys, but if that's what it takes...

That's interesting, @whiskeytango has the PCE and confirmed that it reported ID:82 and Model:WY-PCE US.
Responding to keystrokes says that data/clock are correct.
Not picking up the keyboard id; maybe reflash the µcontroller.  Recheck the cabling and connectors: sounds like it isn't picking up the id from the data stream when initialising (just guessing though).

Well I wrote up a config remapping the keys (though this still failed to properly handle the onboard LEDs), but then I recalled seeing something about long cables needing some pullup resistors, so I made a much shorter cable from the WYSE to the Pro Micro and now the keyboard gets identified properly.  Whew!

I've got a new problem.  When I have certain combinations of three keys down simultaneously, the third keypress gets dropped.  Though not totally ignored!

One example: [shift] i [space].  As long as I haven't yet released either shift or I, I won't get a space character.  Now the hid_listen output is pretty odd.  Here are the keys pressed sequentially (which is no problem):
Code: [Select]
\1F +E1 dE1
/1F -E1 uE1
\1B +0C d0C
/1B -0C u0C
\27 +2C d2C
/27 -2C u2C
and here are the keys pressed sloppily (i.e. how I would normally type them)
Code: [Select]
\1F +E1 dE1
\1B +0C d0C \7B
\23 \27
/23 /27
/7B /1B -0C u0C
/1F -E1 uE1
What's this about 7B and 23?  I see the \27 for the space bar.  But there's no u2C d2C to give me an actual space character!
Here I'll mash space a bit while holding down shift-i (again, all I'll get in my output are some capital I characters)
Code: [Select]
\1F +E1 dE1
\1B +0C \7B d0C
\23 \27
/23 /27
\23 \27 /23 /27
\23 \27
/23 /27
\23 \27
/23 /27
\23 \27 /23 /27
\23 \27 /23 /27
\23 \27
/23 /27
\23 \27 /23 /27
\23 \27
/23 /27
/1F -E1 /7B uE1 /1B -0C u0C

It's very frustrating!  Can anyone else duplicate this?  Is it just a common thing that I (being a bit of a newbie) have never heard of?

Yours might need the pullup resistor between +5V and Data also (even though you made a shorter cable).

I just added a 1k resistor between +5v and data per the diagram, but no change in symptoms.  However reading over this thread a little more carefully I see I'm not the first to have this problem!

Ok, just wired one of these up and am having an issue. I programmed the teensy, and it shows up in device manager just fine. Then I soldered it to the pcb, and it still shows up in device manager, but all the lock leds are lit and it doesn't register any keypresses. I checked HID listen and it's totally silent. any help is appreciated.

Can't.  Nano has an atmega328, and the Wyse Converter (along with most of the aftermarket keyboard firmware here) is written for the beefier 32u4.  I used a cheap pro micro clone for mine.

Don't know if it'll help you folks having trouble but if you're using a Pro Micro, most of the Chinese ones have a problem. J1 in the corner should be bridged with solder on a 5 volt Pro Micro and usually isn't on the ones from China.

There's more info in this thread.

They're not all 5 volt but the 5 volt version is what you should be using for a USB keyboard project. The 3.3 volt run at 8mhz and the 5 volt run at 16mhz. In the photo in the other thread you can see the rectangular metal can in the center at the end opposite the USB port. You can see the metal cover has been stamped with the frequency: 16.000. 16mhz = 5 volt Pro Micro.

Mine have arrived, and both have 16.000MHz on the component, and both have J1 NOT bridged.

Hi guys, I need some help.
I used Wyse Converter with my Pro Micro. When I plug in the keyboard, non key working. Try the hid_listen and it show:

I don't know where I went wrong  :(

update: I did it. I made mistake with pin out. The right one is:
Black -> Data -> PD0
Red -> +5V -> VCC
Green -> Clock -> PD1
Yellow -> GND -> GND

Yes, indeed -- Thank you, Soarer, wherever you are. I am typing this on my Wyse30 using an Orihalcon/Soarer converter built into the cable. I've remapped the board to something as close to a HHKB as I could get. Now the board is quite usable for me. It would be even better (for me, at least) if I could detach the NumPad!

I am amazed at how smooth these vintage black switches are. The board also feels very solid despite its relatively light weight.

Now I need to clean up the board and repair the wonky 10x spacebar.

Hi everyone,

I am pretty new to any DIY electronic projects, I managed to brake the Pro Micro (Chinese one) USB jack from the PCB of a friends WYSE keyboard :(. He used Soarers converter so I bought a new Pro Micro, desoldered the broke one, flashed 1.12 to the new one, soldered and all I have at the moment is the keyboard LEDs (Scroll Lock...) are on constantly, no inputs from the keyboard. On the Pro Micro the power LED is on, no other LEDs are on. I am new to anything like this so I am stuck at the moment. Took pictures, notes... before desoldering from the wiring (just you know, to make sure...), so I am pretty sure the wiring is OK, checked conductivity with a multimeter between the solder joints and the end of the cables (end=just before they connect to the PCB of the keyboard), all OK, no bridges... Executed hid_listen but nothing. These are the outputs I collected to debug, could someone be so kind to help me out with some suggestion?

flash output: https://pastebin.com/HLH7vM07
journalctl output when connecting the keyboard: https://pastebin.com/PmJkQYNt, the only "red" in the log is: hid-generic 0003:16C0:047D.0005: No inputs registered, leaving
the output of hid_listen (keyboard is still connected): https://pastebin.com/1L8vXWd9, nothing else when hitting any keys
I desoldered the pro micro controller and did the clock/data short test Soarer suggested on Deskthority, output: https://pastebin.com/DyUZwtLf

What I did not do is to "send" any config to the cotroller (like modify keyboard mapping...) but according to the step-by-step guide is not necesseraly needed.

I tried with 3 different USB cable (even with the one I used for flashing), same results, I reflashed with version 1.10, but same. What could go wrong?

Hi, thanks for helping, my pro micro has 16.000 marked on the silver thing (that is the clock generator?) and I have not bridged the top right corner pins yet. I guess 5V should go to the keyboard so I need to bridge them, correct?

EDIT
on the forum post you linked, someone said this: "Is it possible you had it selected as a 3V3 instead of 5V pro micro when you were flashing it? That can cause this behaviour. You should be able to reflash at 5V by forcing it into bootloader mode. "

Does it make any difference if you flash it with 3.3 or 5? Or let me put it this way, can I influence the voltage just by flashing it differently?

EDIT2
I read this topic and yes, I need to bridge it, Thank you Tactile, oddly enought though the original pro micro (the one I broke) did not show conductivity between thouse 2 pins on my multimeter... hmmm

So before soldering the pads I checked the voltage at the end of the cables with my multimeter, 1 probe was connected to VCC, 1 probe was connected to the cable that goes to GND and I measured 4.65V (DC) (the keyboard was connected to the controller, the controller was connected to my PC via USB). I checked the conductivity between the pads and my multimeter was not beeping... what a heck?

Thanks for the suggestions, without the J1 bridge I measured 4.65V, I even checked the regulator OUT pin and it was 4.65. After soldering the J1 bridge it is now 5V. The keyboard still not responding :(:(. I really hope I did not kill the keyboard somehow.... Without the keyboard I connected the controller to my PC, shorted the clock pin to the ground briefly and I used a program called hid_listen which showed some error codes so I assume the board is OK, although I am by no means an expert here...

EDIT
After closing the J1 pins I reflashed the controller with 1.12, resoldered, still nothing :(. The 3 LEDs (caps lock...) are on, but nothing, no response etc.

Unfortunately I am pretty much stuck here :(

I'm not sure that's right. "1.12" sounds like a version of Soarer's converter firmware. For a Wyse converter I think you should be using version 1.30, as found way down at the bottom of the first post in this thread.
