If the spacebar has a keyboard icon on the left side, press and hold the Function key (Fn) and then tap the space bar one time. Press the F12 key. Press the F5 key. Press the special key dedicated to turning the back light on and off.
might be dirty, get a can of air, from like home depot, office max, etc. turn off laptop, take out battery, turn upside down and blow the air underneath the spacebar, this should fix your problem. If not you need a new space bar.
If the hinge parts are not broken and are still in place then place the space bar over these parts, align it so it is in the correct position then press the space bar down until the hinges click into the space bar.
I have heard and did experience laptop spacer bar not registering when you press it.
I have a HP zv6000 with this problem, here is how I solved it, as it is a manufacturers design fault:
If you have the maintenance manual (get it of the web free), remove the key board. Place a small block of about 3/16" of folded paper between the underside of the spacer bar pad and the board itself. This it to help raise the spacer bar for the next step.
On the underside center of the spacer bar is a small black silicone rubber button, that may now have enough space between it and the underside of the spacer bar (after applying the sandwich of folded paper). The object of this is to enable you to place a 1/4" square of masking tape between the top of the silicone button and the underside of the spacer bar.
If this can be done, the tape will stay in place very well and in essence raise the spacer bar by the tape thickness, thus aiding in overcoming an unresponsive operation of the spacer bar. You may wish to place two thicknesses of tape in place for positive assurance. I only used one and it seems to work well, but I would recommend two thicknesses of tape, as the bar may still occasionally not register. But trust me it is much better now.
I'm sorry I did not take any pictures and I am not a member here, but I hope someone will find this very useful and post it for all to see.
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. Put the space bar key back inplace and gently press on it with fingers until it snaps back in place. 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.
