    after snapping the spacebar back in place after cleaning underneath it with alcolhol laden q-tip...it did not work on the screen while typing.....it worked fine mechanically,and physically,but did not space between words typed .......after a few days the alcolhol must've dried out because it works like new now.....thanks all for your help

    btw.....the cleaning solution i used was electric pre-shave....mostly alcolhol based with a little lubrication in it.

    Took off spacebar on Dell Desktop keyboard (RT7D50) to clean underneath.  Made note of orientation of the little "swaybar" underneath.  Cleaned, reassembled.  Spacebar is loose and clunky, "swaybar" is loose and does not transfer force from side to side as is should.  Seems the answer should be simple but after 2 hours fooling with it, I cannot resolve the clunk.  

    Any suggestions appreciated.

Have you tried applying pressure gently until it snaps back in place? That could be the issue, is that the spacebar unsnapped itself when you were cleaning it. If you were using compressed air (canned air) then you may have blown something underneath it and it jammed itself in there. Trying turning the keyboard upside down and gently tapping it on a hard surface to see if anything else comes out.

Logitec K120 spacebar skips runs wild. How to remedy problem


I'd bet that if you pulled the space bar off the keyboard that you'll find a bunch of gunk around either the spring bar, keyswitch or both.

Either that or someone set a keyboard macro for "sticky key" on your space bar when you weren't looking.

For hints on pulling keycaps, check youtube. Getting them off is easy. Getting them back on is the hard part.

Greetings,

You may have some small item underneath the spacebar. The spacebar will "pop up" if you use a screwdriver or something to pry it up from the keyboard. Insert it near the B on the top side of the spacebar and pry up towards you. Clean out from underneath and reattach it.

How do I reseat the space bar on the mx 3200 . the logitech keyboard accummulates cat hair behind the keys, easily removed. But the space bar has a spring and white gunk and does not reseat easily. Mine...


Use a credit card or plastic Id, insert it and bend it gently. If it fails, you can use 2 cards, one on each side of the spacebar.

If after all you are unable to remove the spacebar, try removing the keys around it, just remember their distribution.

Beware, the spacebar is a little more complicated to put back in place compared to the other keys, as you said, there is a spring.

The sugar goes into the contacts and permanently deamages the keyboard. NOT REPAIRABLE. The laptop keyboards are not very expensive. You will only get that problem solved by replacing the keyboard.

The rubber plug below the spacebar button is faulty.The button needs to be removed gently and the rubber plug below it which touches the board below should be cleaned.If this does not solve the issue the rubber plug below the button needs to be replaced.Its a common problem.

thanks and please do not forget to rate the solution.keep updated.

The spacebar doesn't work consistantly unless ''pounded''


The spacebar is the most often used switch on your keyboard, so, yes, it's from overuse, but also from
the fact that it is the longest key on your keyboard and the closest to the edge, all of this combining to
make it the dirtiest key on the board.

So, get a keyboard cleaning kit, either professional or DIY which would consist of the following, cotton
swabs, compressed air, and maybe a toothbrush and realize that all the stuff that accumulates under
your keyboard's space key makes it harder to depress to the point where contact is made.

Keyboard spacebar sticking


Just solved it, after a bit of tinkering...

the prongs of the floating plastic frame need to sit inside the clips of the spacebar key, you can't just clip it back on with the prongs either up or down. It's fiddly, you need a paperclip or thin screwdriver to do it, but it's stopped the sticking problem.
