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!

How do I remove "return" button which stopped working


The button itself is not the contact.

Unscrew the two halves of the keyboard by locating the screws under the rubber feet on the bottom.

Turn it upside down.
It should come apart the top key section, then a rubberised mat then the PCB then the bottom case.

When you press the key a rubber dome with a conductive pad presses against the contacts on the PCB.

Clean the contacts with switch cleaner and reassemble.

My keys are either not ttttttttttttttyping at aall or do like the t above. More pressure on keys helps.


I assume you have windows.
open start menu
all programs
accessories
ease of access (also called accessibility on xp)
select on-screen keyboard
its a bit slow but it will get you by until you can fix the problem or get a new keyboard. below are three possible alternative solutions:
1. If it is a wireless keyboard then try to change the channel its a little button on the bottom of the keyboard.
2. If its a wireless keyboard change the batteries.
3. If the above two solutions do not help then either carefully take apart the keyboard and clean everything (if you suspect something was spilled on the keyboard) or if its just an old keyboard then the contacts need cleaning they look like little round rubber dots on the bottom of the keys mashing little grid like symbols on the clear plastic sheets. I usually clean the clear plastic symbol parts with a rubber pencil eraser very gently and the black dots below the keys i clean with just a paper towel. I don't use cleaning solutions and try and keep it all dry. remember less scrubbing is more. Look at the unused keys like z to see how they are supposed to look. and good luck. but its easier just to buy a new one.

Return key acts as cap lock key


Go into System Preferences and select Keyboard & Mouse
Under Keyboard click on Change Keyboard Type... button
• Follow the basic steps to reset your Keyboard via the screen prompts.
Once you have done that select the Keyboard Shortcuts tab.
• Click the Restore Defaults button.

Now test your keyboard's return key. If this still does not resolve the Return key not functioning in the normal return key functionality,
Click Show All and go to the Universal Access pane in System Preferences and under Keyboard tab, make sure the Sticky Keys radio button is turned off.

Try these steps and let me know if there is any change.

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.

Trouble reassembling KB 9808


Well, it turned out to be the user interface that messed up! When I put it back together the rubber mat slipped off center so that the keys got not bounce. I reset it and put it back together and all is well.
Thanks.

Keyboard problems


Go to Control Panel --- then System -- then device manager -- under keyboard right click and go to update driver.

If that doesn't work, go into control panel and there should be an Icon for KEYBOARD. Check the "Key settings" and make sure it set to "Standard" and not custom or gaming.

Hope this helps!

Need to find replacement p keyboard cap for my gateway laptop


You will probably not be able to purchase a key but try calling the manufacturer and they may be able to send you one for free.

However a better solution:

use a small screwdriver or knife to prise off another similar sized key on your keyboard (most user never use the windows key,
bottom left between <CTRL> and <ALT>)
Place the screwdriver or knife tip under the bottom edge of the key and gently lever it upwards until it clips off.

Now put this key over the 'P' position and gently press down, it should clip on successfully

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.
