No sound on 3 keys of the piano.


if it only three keys only you may want to find out is it worth fixing the 3 keys or is it cheaper to buy a new one. the cost of labor, cost for parts need to fix issue, and down the road so a week, month or year it happens again 1-2 keys go out, way the cost verses the new unit plus a warranty to new unit, it is better to buy a new one these days cheaper to buy than repair the cost and parts and labor is so high.

i hope this helps

thank you rod

PS call around instruments store, piano and organ shops, ask if they repair and is it worth repairing they will be honest with you

Missing B-key


Keyboards are really cheap right now. Honestly you'd be better off just buying a new one than trying to find a new key.

But to answer your question, I've never seen anywhere that sells individual keys. Maybe for a laptop, but not likely.

My del button wont work on acer 5235 or backspace help needed please


Easiest solution...buy a new keyboard. Beyond that, pop the keys out with a butterknife, and insure that nothing is keeping them from fully depressing. If there's no obstruction, you might try completly pulling the case off the keyboard itself. If you've never done this, you'll find that each "key" on the keyboard corresponds to a matching "black button" on the physical board itself. The Key pressing on this button is what sends the signals to your computer that a keystroke has been made. Try pressing that little "black button" with a pencil or something, and see if it registers. If it does, you just need a new key, if not, the board is shot and it's cheapest to get a whole new keyboard.

I know that i've kind of watered this down, but i hope it points you in the right direction.

My sister has a Dell Latitude CPxJ650GT computer with a Dell Keyboard. She is unable to use the keys 67yuhjm on the keyboard. What can she do to repair this problem? Thank you for your kind...


  • Step 1
Buy a can of compressed air and spray it on the keyboard if your keys are sticking together. This is the easiest thing you can do to fix the keys on your keyboard. It doesn't work for all problems, but it's a good place to start. Make sure you get the air down inside the keys to clean out any debris, hair or food that may have gotten caught in there.
  • Step 2 Replace the inside of the keyboard with a new piece. One of the major problems with Dell keyboards is that the plastic pieces holding the keys in place become loose or broken. You can find a cheap keyboard from Wal-Mart or an electronics store. Simply take apart the new keyboard, pull the keys off your keyboard, lay the plastic piece on top and replace your keys.
  • Step 3 Use a small dab of super glue to replace keys that have fallen off. Dell laptops often have keys that fall off, especially as the computer ages or is used quite frequently. Place a small dab of glue directly on the round part that holds the key in place and lightly press the key down. When the glue dries, you'll be able to use your laptop again.
  • Step 4 Remove any problem keys from your keyboard and look at the plastic retainers. At times these retainers can become broken, damaged or simply fall off. Carefully pull off the retainer, clean it off with some compressed air and snap it back into place. Then put the key back into the slot and everything should work fine.
  • Step 5 Consult the Dell manuals website to get information on your specific laptop computer. The manual will include information on troubleshooting and repairing any problems with your laptop. If you find that none of their suggestions work, you can also use the website to find the customer servicemag-glass_10x10.gif number. You'll need to call the number and ask for help or advice.

    Missing D key


    Well if you lost the key and its the snap in type of key and you dont want to buy a new keyboard you will have to carefully pull off one of the other keys you never use and put it where your D used to be.

    Keyboard repair


    Hi,

    sure, usually you just push them back on.
    they should click back into place.
    If they dont then the carriage holders are damaged.
    if not you can buy replacement keys, from the likes of e-bay.
    you should be able to get a full keyboard replacement for about £25 Or $50.
