Type 7 Keyboards have dip switches on the back... these must be set correctly for the specific country. After setting the switches to the correct values, the keys were recognized correctly.
at least the Type-5 to Type-6 keyboards used a dip switch to set the locale/layout. This setting is read during power-up (device probing phase) by the OBP.
I had "lost" my printout of the older keyboards (Type-5, Type-5c) switch settings, otherwise I had posted my reply earlier.
If the Type-7 keyboard uses this dip switch too, please check the setting. It should be located either at the back or underside of the keyboard.
The rightmost 4 positions (2,3,4,5) are the lower-significant-bits (value 8,4,2,1). The single position (1) on the right is the value 1 (if set) of the most-significant-bits, the value 2 is hardwired enabled.
The values for the locale/layout are between HEX 23 for french and 3F for french canadian.
Portuguese layout is HEX 29 (switch 2 and 5 set/ON).
Hope this helps.
