Has the laptop gotten Wet, Or there Maybe excess Humidity there. U can try taking it apart and cleaning the nodes where the keys touch the motherboard/membrane, also the ribbon connector into to the connecters, check and clean.. Clean this area with alcohol and a q-tip GENTLY,let it air dry and re assemble . This may or may not help your problem. because the water/moisture infiltration in the the connectors, can cause these kinds of problems. Good Luck

Replace the keyboard? If a few keys grouped together stop working, the matrix may be damaged, so replace the keyboard.

How to remove samsung RF511 keyboard


I was actually travelling throughout central America and even in December it gets unbearable with the heat, so I sweated on certain keys that shorted out. I have the Samsung rf511 laptop. I just googled "laptop repair" for my city and called. They offered to put in the keyboard free and only charge for the keyboard itself. they say around 50 bucks for the keyboard but i've found ones for 20 on ebay.

Yamaha psr 550


When PSR550 keys stop working, or are intermittent, in any arrangement, this can be fixed (with work). There is probably TINY dust or debris which prevents a clean key contact from taking place; you must unscrew and open the PSR550 up like a ****, then unfasten the bottoms of the keyboard circuit boards. You can figure out how to move them without totally disconnecting them. You will observe how a tiny rubber-mounted contact presses against an interleaved circuit-board connection pattern to make contact when a keyboard key is pressed. Any dirt or crud on the contact area of the circuit board must be removed, because it will prevent the conductive contact from bridging the circuit cleanly and fully. I used 91% alcohol and QTips to clean all contact surfaces. It took me a couple of disassemble/assemble cycles to get all the keys clean and working, and the PSR550 back together. But first download the service manual: it will show you how to open it and access various components. You will see that the keyboard switches are much like calculator buttons on a TI-83 calculator. They are pretty well enclosed, but you will see how much dust can settle in just through various humidity conditions, especially if you take it to gigs. Good Luck.

Dumped hot tea on key board and it shut down


When this happens, you should fully disassemble the laptop & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of liquid on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, liquid damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no liquid seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.
If the liquid fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

Some of my keys stopped working, yet if I press down in the left center under the keyboard then they work,, how do I get them to work all the time?? Replace keyboard??


You have an "open circuit" somewhere inside your keyboard - it could be a bad solder connection or a broken wire. In either case I would recommend a new keyboard.
