If you have a sticky key that you know of you may have a couple that you haven't noticed. The number 2 key sticking usually means something was spilled on it at one time.If nothing is spilled you will only see the keys at the sides act up and usually the longer or larger ones. These act up from not hitting them straight but at an angle.
The next time it does this try thumping the keyboard to jar stuck keys loose. The key may look ok but is stuck just enough to do this. You just need to flick a finger at the keyboard to knock them loose. You may have to do this a few times before it dislodges the offender. On a normal keyboard you flip it over and knock on the back like knocking on a door to do this. On a laptop you can't hit it as hard.
If the keyboard keeps doing this your option is to replace it. Depending on the make and model a new laptop keyboard is about $45-$75 and is installed in a few minutes.
When my logtch does that is usally is a stuck key. It can also be a low battery or the antenna is too close or too far away.
Most of the time its a stuck key. turn it upside down and knock on it like you are knocking on a door. that usually will jar the keey loose. you may be able to find the stuck key by pushing on them and see which one doesn;t pop back or feel right. Don;t try to pry it loose do the knock.
If the battery has just enough power left you can get some wired things happening but usually it just stops working.
Move the antenna so that it is about a foot away and is clear line of sigt from the keyboard to the antenna. You may want to reset or reconnect using the button on the antenna and the bottom of the keyboard.
You can pry out the keys using a butter knife and use rubbing alcohol to clean the underneath.
if the coffee got into the connectors you might be out of luck.
**THE FOLLOWING IS NOT RECOMMENDED** When i spilt mt dew on my keyboard i took out the battery let it decharge for 5 minutes. I put it in a pan and poured rubbing alcohol on it and let it sit for 5 min. While it was sitting i swished the alcohol around a little bit so it could flow. took it out and let it dry for about 1-2 hours and it worked perfectly. this is orta used as a last resort
This keyboard is horrible. Several of the keys stick or will not work. I called customer support which was not very helpful. They told me to take the batteries out of the keyboard then retry the keyboard and if it still did not work return it to the store I bought it from.. I like the set up of the keyboard but? to bad it does not work. As I am typing this with my old keyboard because I can not use the the s520
No need to replace keyboard. If it really failed than none of the keys would work. Unplug it, turn it upside down, unscrew all the screws, open it up, clean top of he contact board with cloth dipped in alcohol. You can wash plastic parts and membrane manually in warm water with dish washing detergent. After that, wrap it in towel to dry. You can use a hair dryer but from a distance. Drying can take hours unless you work in it. Than just put all back together and screw back the screws. Plug in keyboard.
