Repair Technician
Bob Tibbetts

This is for a complete cleaning and repair of a Northgate keyboard, any modeland other brands that have Alps switches.

Would you like to have your Northgate look like the keyboards pictured below? I will disassemble your keyboard, clean the inside, wash keycaps and all plastic parts, test all key switches and replace if necessary. Your keyboard will look and act like new again. I can sometimes fix motherboards, but not chips, etc.

I have been refurbing and repairing Northgate keyboards for over 20 years now.

Yellow, Orange discolored Keyboard tops
Thanks to a couple of customers that sent me a link to a formula to take out the 'Orange, Yellowish color of some Northgate keyboards, I can now take out most of the discoloration of these keyboards. It is very slow and takes numerous applications of the solution and requires a bright sunny day to work. I have not tried keycaps as I think it will be to tedious and expensive. To do the keyboard top, the cost is $30.00

Northgate Warranty

My work is guaranteed. If you have any problem or another switch goes bad other than what we repaired or replaced in the first 30 days, ship it back and I will repair it, at no charge for the labor, there will be a charge for any new parts needed.

You pay the shipping to me and I will pay the return shipping.

The keyboard has to be returned in the original packing or there will be a charge for new packaging.

90 days to 180 days any switches replaced will be $12.00 each installed plus return shipping and packaging if needed.

The base charge for cleaning and repair is $60.00 for any model of Northgate keyboard, except Dvorak layout and Evolution's. For Dvorak layout and Evolution's add $10.00 After diagnostics, if you decide against the repair, there will be $10.00 minimum charge.
If the repair is less than $25.00 the charge will be the minimum of $25.00
If a keyboard is excessively dirty like the before and after 102, there will be a $10.00 surcharge, If it like the dirty 101 the surcharge will be $20.00.
Any parts needed are an extra charge. Shipping is not included.

On any 101P's, 102P's, Ultra TP's, Ultra's, Avant Prime's and Avant Stellar's I will remove the bad programming chip at NC if I'm refurbing the keyboard.

I will ship back to you by UPS ground insured. Shipping costs will be actual cost plus $6.00 for packaging / handling,
multiple keyboards are $3.00 extra for packaging. (Packaging includes the box, foam pouch and anti static peanuts)

Any keyboards repaired and not paid within 60 days of the repair will be considered
abandoned and will be sold for the repair cost.

I can make the following:

Internal cables for Ultras
Cord receptacle and internal cable for all removable cord OmniKeys

Programmable Northgates

If you have a programmable Northgate, a non dip switch model, I can clean it and replace switches. If it is locking up, it is caused by a bad Bios chip. There is a fix, e-mail me and I will tell you how to fix the problem.
