Question about Compaq Keyboard

Open Question

Keyboard randomly double spaceing when pressing space bar.

Normally, when i hold the spacebar, there will be an space, half an second delay, than it starts adding spaces...

Well,apparently the half an second delay is gone, and randomly while typingan message (like 10 times so far while typing this out) it adds anextra space... It's really annoying. I installed the keyboard wirelessmedia keyboard drivers from the disk that came with the package, butthat didn't fix it...

Also I should probably mention, i had this keyboard for about 1 to 1 and an half years so far.

Also, apparently this site doesn't have my product, and it wouldn't post my question without entering an one that they know, so my keyboard aint an compaq, it's an "Labtec® Media Wireless Desktop" (http://www.labtec.com/index.cfm/gear/details/AMR/EN,crid=28,contentid=711)

Try getting the cans of compressed air you would get at an office supply store, power down the laptop and trydrying the board with short bursts of air, there may be some dampness under the keys interfereing with the imput signals from the key pads.

Wired and onscreen keyboard space bar doesnt work


Keyboards are cheap. If you need to use this one then you will need to carefully pop the spacebar key out, turn the keyboard upside down and give it a good shake. You will see a ton of junk fall out ;)

My dog knocked over my Compaq keyboard. Now the divided spacebar is opposite what it should be. Instead of spacing on the right spacebar I have to hit the left side. How do I fix this?

I have a IBM WW 1500 all the keyboard works but the spacebar, is this the function or keyboard or possible homming sensor failure?


If everything wirks but the space bar you probably have a keyboard problem. If someone had the space bar off it may not be properly installed. You can pop the space bar off and look for debris under it.

Get a Electrical/Electronic solvent spray from RS, give it a good spray (with Power Off!) and operate it lots of times. The spray will evaporate naturally and may remove the gunk! Ian.

The rubber plug below the spacebar button is faulty.The button needs to be removed gently and the rubber plug below it which touches the board below should be cleaned.If this does not solve the issue the rubber plug below the button needs to be replaced.Its a common problem.

Acer laptop spacebar fell off


The space bar key is connected tothe keyboard a little bit differently then any other key.

There is a metal retainer connectedto the space bar key (on some keyboard models). Separate the retainer from thespace bar key with a flathead screwdriver.

Install the retainer back inplace as it shown on the picture. You have to engage the retainer with thesmall hooks on the keyboard.
clip_image006.jpg
Put the space bar key back inplace and gently press on it with fingers until it snaps back in place.
clip_image008.jpg
That’s it. The space bar key isinstalled back in place and should work as before. If you still cannot fix yourkeyboard, then you’ll have to find a new oneand replace it.
Pleas rate my solution on fixya if you are done.

Space bar does not work - any suggestions what is wrong?


Assuming this is a WW1000 the space bar will come off with a nlittle prying pressure under the center of the bar. Remove it and check for debris under it.
