HP 700/96 Terminal - Get into the Setup Menu

Hello, I have just obtained a HP 700/96 terminal + keyboard which is in very good condition. It powers on, and I was able to reset to defaults by holding the "D" key at boot.  However, I can't seem to get into the Setup menu. I couldn't find the PDF of a manual for this specific terminal, but a manual for a similar device basically just says to press the Setup key on the keyboard. I've done that but nothing happens but the standard keypress tone. I can type into the terminal and text goes across the first line but I don't get anything from my plugged in device. I have a standard serial DCE device plugged in which has been tested and works. It was tested with both a PC and an old ADDS ViewPoint terminal. Tried port 1 and port 3 on the HP, at both 19,200 and 9600 baud set on the device. Without the ability to get into the setup menu, my options are kind of limited. Any thoughts?

I got this sorted out. Turns out there were 2 very similar keyboards made - the C3341 which is what I had to start. But the machine-correct keyboard is the C3340. I got my hands on one and this one lets me get into all the menus as expected.
