Are you sure it's not defective? An LK201 (any LK201) with a matrix short
(very common) will behave as you described.

I've seen something like that used on a DECmate II. AFAIK it was a
standard LK201 apart from the labels and keycaps and would work on a
VT320, etc.

AFAIK they all had the same internal ciecuit and firmware and were
interchangeable. Of course the LK250 is something totally different....
