On most keyboad you can take of each key. Try to get a flat head screw driver and pop it of with some force. You then can clean the keys. If this does not work you might need a new keyboard. Do not use water (or very little)

When I type a letter it sticks and keep typing the same letter.


Keyboards sit out exposed to all kinds of debris. Dust, ashes and so on can settle into the area around the keys and cause problems. Turning the keyboard upside down and patting it on the backside might help. You'll be amazed at what comes out. A can of compressed air might also do the trick but again, upside down.
Keyboards are cheap and they really aren't worth fixing. But if it becomes too frustrating, and it's not a wireless keyboard, you might try putting it in the dishwasher upside down. This is a last resort when you've given up and are ready to buy a new keyboard. And I'd only do this if someone spilled something on it.
If it doesn't work now, this won't make it work any less. Well, actually, it could. LOL
Good luck.

When typing on keys it put multiple letters


The keys are sticking. Has something been spilled on it? Try these things:

Compressed air under the keys.

A blunt thin knife to jiggle keys slightly, be careful.

A damp cloth.

When I type a letter on keyboard it keeps repeating the letter


The key might be sticking down, which is probably a defect in the product. I tested an ihome keyboard (Bluetooth) and everything except the spacebar was prone to sticking itself down, no pop spill or nothing. So, I recommend to return the keyboard if you still have the receipt and get a Bluetooth Apple keyboard instead, as ihome is good for their docks, but their keyboards suck!

My other laptop keeps repeating the letter I press like when I go to google search and type 'h' it will go hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh forever and not let me type anything or delete.


Hi, this is a common problem with sticking keys, caused by a spillage i.e a drink onto the keyboard. The keyboard will need cleaning or replacing.

Keys Sticking


no! you don't want to do that if you unscrew the back plate all the plastic suction cups with fall off and you will never be able to type on it, until you place the suction cups back what you want to do is get some WD-40 (the tool for fixing almost everything) or a can of pressurized air with a areosole top and aim it at the key or under it, press it and it will blow every piece of junk under the keys cleaning it.
