Dissembling YDP- 131/YDP-213 keyboard to reveal key contacts?


To remove keys you need to remove screws on the top row of the keys, turn over, remove circuit boards that run the length of the keyboard, remove rubber contacts. Keys will then un-clip the circuit boards hold the keys in place.

Keyboard problems


dear bangaloreboy , this may be due to your shift key is having a problem. This is permanently pressed or the other key is having some problem . If you think shift key is not causing a problem please check the key board settings from contol pannel .

I donot think this is caused by changing the operating system.

Best Regards
rafique
