Question about M-Audio US85100 Keyboard

1 Answer

Our praise band keyboard has a key that won't return to the "up" position.

It will "bounce" a little up, off the bottom of the throw, but won't come all the way back up to it's proper position. No sound from this key at any time.
FGB church, Cape Girardeau, MO. Sorry I don't remember the name of the keyboard. It happened at this mornings service and we have a big "Sing-speration" scheduled for tonite at 6 pm ct

With the "Sing-spiration" only 3 hours away, we, John Cobb (the keyboard player) and I, decided to jump in and find the problem.  We removed the covering on the backside, removed the keyboard from the base, and when we saw the bottom of the keys, found a broken counterweight.  It was from the mid-G key that wouldn't work.  John said he doesn't use the high-G key much, so we took the good counterweight off of high-G and replaced the broken weight.  After replacing enough screws to keep the keyboard assembled, John "tested" it for the nites playability.  All is great!  We'll go to the local music store today and order a new counterweight.  

The Sing-spiration was a great success!

HP 245 ROLAND DIGITAL PIANO . FOUR KEYS broke and do not return to its original position


Sounds like what happens with mine -- the key weights broke. I have solved this by opening it up and stealing the weights from similar keys at the lowest or highest end of the keyboard. The keys pop off by messing with the back ends, and the weights just come right out. Not bad really. Opening the unit is just a matter of finding the right screws, there are 4 larger ones on the left and right undersides and 4 more small ones in the back. Intelligent hunting will find them. Good luck!

The blade on my delta 28-276 keeps riding off the bottom tire


The blade on a band saw stays on the wheels because they are aligned in a way to keep it there. Several things can be wrong to make the alignment off enough that the blade won't stay on. Check the condition of the tire and that the wheel isn't bent. Then check that the bearings and lower drive shaft are not damaged. Another remote possibility is a bent frame that throws the alignment out of wack.

Lenovo s1o number lock stuck. i am unable to use keyboard. FN key non responsive. any suggestions are appreciated!


Hello

If the key is physically stuck in the "down" or pressed postion, the key may have become disconnected from the mechanism underneath that returns it to the "up" position.

All keys on all keyboards can be removed. This includes laptops. On laptops, the keys typically have less travel (up and down) than a desktop keyboard and the key attaches to the keyboard differently.

In either case, use a small screwdriver or your fingernail and gently lift up on the key - to return it to the "up" position. When in that position, see if the rest of the keyboard works.

If it does, you can simply lift up on the key and remove it from the keyboard. The support that is underneath will either be removed with the key or will remain on the keyboard.

Re-attaching the key involves aligning the key with the ends of the support bracket and snapping it back into place. (Most keyboards have a white plastic structure that forms a X on 2 sides - allowing the key to move up and down.)

With the key removed, look at the edges of the surrounding keys to get an idea of how it attaches, align the parts and press it back into place.

Keyboard not responding just making a sound when hitting any key


The speaker will beep when a the Keyboard buffer is full. Many times this is due to a key that is stuck in the down position. With the computer off, run your fingers over all of the keys, and note that the keys "bounce" back up as you release the pressure from your fingers. Any key that is NOT returning to the "up" position is stuck in the down position. Examine that key for any foreign matter that could be wedged between the keys. You may be able to CAREFULLY pry the foreign matter from between the keys using a paper clip that has been opened to form a stiff wire. Also try pushing down on the surrounding keys at you attempt to remove the object. Once the object is removed, turn the keyboard upside down and shake. I think you'll be surprised at how much dirt and other "stuff" comes out from behind those keys. A small air compressor or can of compressed air will also accomplish this. Just be sure not to turn the can of air upside down or you will also expel the propellant from the can which can damage the keyboard and/or computer.

On another note, it is also a posibility that the membrane which holds the keys in the up position is broken which would require you to replace the keyboard itself.

Wireless mouse will not work


Sure you can use the computer w/o a mouse. You can use the Alt key, Tab key, arrow keys, and the Enter key to move and make selections.

About the cordless mouse...I assume you have good batteries installed and in the proper position? Is this a new mouse? If you think it is bad, return it.

You can always buy a cheap USB mouse to get you going. Even though you can use a keyboard to navigate, it gets a little tedious after awhile.
