That was a good idea. It turned out that both keyboards seemed to work fine on
a VT420. So at least the only thing which has been damaged (AFAIK) is the
controller or something on the DECstation.
Any ideas what to look for inside that one?

I'll try to terminate the mouse and keyboard ports, and see if that would help
to make it operable. Then I could run some more thorough tests in the PROM
