The same thing happened to me with my gateway keyboard. The f2, f3, and f4 keys were stuck down in the keyboard itself. I just wanted a quick fix, so I soaked a paper towel, rung it out, and cleaned the keys like that, all the keys work wonderfully now

How to replace keyboard


If you want to clean under the keys, take a knife or something thin. Then, stick it under the key and pop it out. just use a lightly moist towel to rub under the keys and on the contact points. make sure to dry it off well and make sure its not plugged in when doing this.

My shift keys keep sticking down and move around like something is either broken under the key or, it just has something sticky down in it. My question is wich screws in the back do I unscrew to...


Hi!
Keys are designed to be removable from the front, you just have to be careful.
Get a flatheaded screwdriver and stick it under the shift key then gently (!) start pulling up. When you feel that it clicked out the lift it up gently and remove the small wire supporting it (note not all keyboards have it).
When you're done cleaning it just stick it back.
Good luck!

Seveal keys stick


On mine I have a couple of keys that stick To unstick them turn thekeyboard upside down and then knock on it just like you are knocking on a door. That pops the leys loose. do not try to pry them loose.

Past that you need to take the leyboard apart and clean. If you have spilled something you have to clean or replace.

Hi Brown551967,

Its the dust & dirt in the keyboard problem. If you have a powerful vacuum cleaner, try cleaning your keyboard with that. But before that use a long bristled brush between the keys to loosen out any stubborn dust particles. Concentrate more on the affected keys. If this helps the fine else you might need to disassemble the keyboard and do a thorough cleaning. Please DON'T try it if you're not confident of doing it. Just cleaning it thoroughly will do the job.

Hope this solves your problem.

Keys Sticking


no! you don't want to do that if you unscrew the back plate all the plastic suction cups with fall off and you will never be able to type on it, until you place the suction cups back what you want to do is get some WD-40 (the tool for fixing almost everything) or a can of pressurized air with a areosole top and aim it at the key or under it, press it and it will blow every piece of junk under the keys cleaning it.

There may be some moisture/dust in the circuit beneath the keys in the keyboard. Open the Keyboard , wipe the circuits with a dry tissue paper and reassemble the keyboard. Its just the rubber beneath the A button is also pressing the Caps lock contact on the circuit below the KEYS. The Simplest solution is replace the keyboard.

Saitek Eclipse II keys are sticking


You can remove the screws on the back and clean the keyboard. It's very easy task to do. Just remember components locations inside so you can reassemble.

You may try removing it and cleaning out any gunk on the key shafts, and possibly tighting the spring if there is one. If that doesn't help you might just have worn it out, and you'll need a new one.

I haven't tried this one myself, but applying a little WD40 might actually help lubricate the key (and loosen gunk), but don't "fill up" your keyboard.
