Question about Balance CN6555 Notebook

1 Answer

Shift key has to be pressed firmly to work.

It seems to be only my shift key on the right hand side of my keyboard isn't working. The rest of the keys work perfectly. Is it a hardware problem or is just a worn out key? Know how to fix it?

If there were more that one key that has failed it would indicate that you have a keyboard controller chip that has failed or that the connector from the keyboard to the motherboard is not making proper contact. You may get that key to work by pressing that key very firmly.

You may be able to fix the faulty key by removing that key and spraying the faulty key contact with electronic spray cleaner whilst pressing the key pad several times. It may not work because it may be sealed and the cleaning fluid may not be able to penetrate the key contacts.

Then the only thing to do is to buy and fit a new keyboard from the manufacrurer.,

My acer laptops left hand side shift key not working


Reinstall your keyboard if it is software problem. If it is hardware problem you can change the keyboard or learn to use the RIGHT SHIFT key. A minor annoyance (in my opinion).

I would replace the keyboard. They are fairly inexpensive from that auction site flea bay and a video on how to do it is available on utube. Search for your make and model with the words 'replace keyboard' after it in the search box.

The right hand keys do not work. the return key and back space key does not work all others work. is there a place to go to set up in the control pannel.


This isn't a setting problem, it's hardware - some of the connections inside the keyboard have failed and you must replace the entire keyboard with a new one.
Time for a visit to a repair shop.

Hello i was writing an email and held down the shift key for to long and an box came up with three options so i just pushed cancelled and now the keyboard is not working properly.capslock is back to front....


It seems your sticky keys got turned on somehow. Press shift key five times and it should turn off the sticky keys feature and fix your problem.

You might be wondering what is this feature all about, so here goes:

StickyKeys is an accessibility feature to aid users who have physical disabilities, but it is also used by others as a means to reduce RSI (or a syndrome called the Emacs Pinky). It essentially serializes keystrokes instead of pressing multiple keys at a time: StickyKeys allows the user to press a modifier key, such as Shift, Ctrl, Alt, or the Windows key, and have it remain active until another key is pressed.

Keypad on right side doesn't work


Try pressing your numlock (top left of the keypad) and try the numbers again. Try your keyboard in another computer -- if they still dont work, you have a hardware failure ... time for another keyboard. If it works on another computer, then I would recommend right-clicking on "My Computer" and selecting "Manage". Go into the hardware manager, and delete your keyboard, and reboot. The Windows will find your keyboard and reinstall the drivers, hopefully resetting whatever configuration was previously blocking your keypad keys.
