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.spacebar.stopped..working.



If your space bar isn't responding when you press it, or if it responds sluggishly, it's possible that you have inadvertently enabled the "Sticky Keys" or "Filter Keys" accessibility option in Windows.


When these options are enabled, your keyboard response time will be dramatically slowed and may require more than one tap to register a keystroke.


Fortunately, it's easy to disable these functions and return your keyboard to normal working order.


Click "Start" and select "All Programs."


Click "Accessories" and select "Ease of Access."

Click "Ease of Access Center."


Click "Make Keyboard Easier to Use."


Click "Set Up Sticky Keys." Deselect the checkbox that says "Turn on Sticky Keys When Shift is Pressed Five Times." Make sure the box that says "Turn on Sticky Keys" is not checked. Click "OK" to save your changes.


Click "Set Up Filter Keys." Uncheck the box that says "Turn on Filter Keys."

Click on the checkbox next to "Turn On Filter Keys When Right Shift Is Pressed For 8 Seconds" to deselect it. Click "OK" to save your changes.


Click "OK" again to save all of the keyboard accessibility changes you have made.


Hope this helps

How to use Alt Car key?


I am guessing the Vaio you have is a Canadian model, which has alternate keyboard drivers for English and French. On these models, it seems the alt car key only works with the French keyboard (durr). To switch, press the LEFT control key and RIGHT shift key at the same time, then release. Now if you use the alt car key like the shift key, i.e. hold it down then press another key, you should be able to access the pink characters. To return to English keyboard, press left-ctrl and right-shift together again.

hth!

The right shift key does not work....it seems to be disabled


There isn't any way to disable a single key. The keyboard has a problem. You can pry the key off and test it by pressing down on the button under the key. If that does not work you will need to replace the keyboard.
