Keyboard spacebar sticking

Some time ago we dropped a dell type keyboard onto our wooden floor which caused the spacebar to jump off. It fits back quite easily however it sticks when pushed. No amount of refitting has helped.

It has the ref cn-oj4623-37172-4an-004v on it's bottom.

The board is the type that has a centre connection and two others, one at each side on t eh underside of the bar.
It is not the type that has metal bars that swing around below to be reseated. It does have a floating plastic frame underneath but this is reasonably fixed and has only a little play.

I have refitted the space bar several times thinking I may not have seated it correctly all to no avail.

Can you assist.

Just solved it, after a bit of tinkering...

the prongs of the floating plastic frame need to sit inside the clips of the spacebar key, you can't just clip it back on with the prongs either up or down. It's fiddly, you need a paperclip or thin screwdriver to do it, but it's stopped the sticking problem.

I was having the same problem with my Dell Keyboard. I finally realized that the plastic "bar" that is attached to the underside of the spacebar needs to be removed from the spacebar, set on the keyboard, with the two top tabs under the "hooks" of the keyboard frame, then snap the spacebar key on top, pushing it to snap into the keyboard frame and into the bar.

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!

The keys on my keyboard keep sticking. this is a


HI,

If the keyboard is so new that you can take it back with the receipt, you should do so. Some keyboards are just not made very well, or if normally a good product, you may simply have a defective one. No reason to keep it if you can return it. There is not an adequate way of fixing keys that stick. Usually that can be caused by spilling something like a sugary drink or coffee onto it, or if it has been exposed to direct sunlight for a long period of time, which could cause the plastic to warp.

When you drop a keyboard on the floor and it stops working is it fixable? or just replace it?


That would depend on the shock damage caused when the keyboard hit the floor, if the keyboard is not working at all (i mean any key) your best off replacing the keyboard, it will work out cheaper in the long run.
What you could however is unscrew the screws underneath, split the keyboard and check to make sure the socket is plugged in.


Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!
