There were several word processing keyboards, depending on which
software you were using. DecWord, WordPerfect, All-In-One, etc.

Usually indicates a bad keyboard. (Error 4=keyboard)

Check the keyboard-terminal cable. Check for stuck

You could try disassembling it, cleaning the contacts
connecting the logic board to the main keyboard,
then try to reassemble it. Sometimes (rarely) it helps.
They are a bitch to disassemble/reassemble (You WILL
need to disassemble the connectors (bend out the pins
holding them to the circuit board, releasing the connector)
to re-insert the clear flat plastic cables.

Many. They should all be interchangable.
