When I type a letter on keyboard it keeps repeating the letter


The key might be sticking down, which is probably a defect in the product. I tested an ihome keyboard (Bluetooth) and everything except the spacebar was prone to sticking itself down, no pop spill or nothing. So, I recommend to return the keyboard if you still have the receipt and get a Bluetooth Apple keyboard instead, as ihome is good for their docks, but their keyboards suck!

The letter "C" popped off


Hi Madelaine_an,

I'm sure that when the letter popped off, two white plastics also came off beneath the letter. Now if you kept them and did not throw them away, you have to first fix both of them, one facing up, the other facing down. There are two insertion points on the missing space on your key board where they are to fit into. These white plastics have edges on them, and can be a little bit depressed to fit into their insertion points, where they expand to fill it after fitting. They are designed such that when you see them you would know which goes into what direction. If you try it one way and it doesnt fit in, then you are trying it wrongly. Reverse the directions. After you have done that, get your letter 'C', and press it into the white plastic. If you fixed the white plastic well, the key should lock into it, but be flexible, ie move up and down.

I hopoe that was able to solve your problem? I would appreciate a rating.
Have a nice day.

Keyboard keys that have purple numbers are locked. Can't type.


Your "Num Lock" is on.
Look for the num lock key (it's similar to the "caps lock" key in function)
If the "num lock" is blue, you may have to hold a blue "fn" key when you press num lock

There's is probably a light at the top of the keyboard that'll tell you when num lock is on.

When typing the letter n 2 letters print nm


Sounds like your keys are sticking together. Pop the affected keys off with a flat tip screw driver and remove any debris. If there is something sticky, remove with Q-Tip soaked in rubbing alcohol. Then replace keys.
