    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.

Is it possible to adjust the sensitivity of the keyboard? My spacebar doesn't work unless I press it uber-hard!


no there is not a sensitivity setting for the spacebars, however, some people have eaten or trimmed their fingernails and so on by their computers and in turn have gunk stuck up underneith the keys.

So check to make sure something has not landed up underneith it and clean it out if it has.
and make sure the keyboard is seated correctly. (if other keys dont work or don't work well this is a sign that the keyboard connectors are not seated correctly, but if all other keys work fine it is not a seating issiue and your cables are connected just fine.) If under warranty call the HP techs first!

otherwise http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c01918142.pdf
Page 70 will get you to the techs maual on keyboard removal, cleaning and so on. a dry toothbrush and a vacume will go a long way though....

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.

Space bar is sticky du to liquid accident ( soft


Get a Electrical/Electronic solvent spray from RS, give it a good spray (with Power Off!) and operate it lots of times. The spray will evaporate naturally and may remove the gunk! Ian.

i have already posted the solution to my problem.....but i will tell you in more specifics what transpired.........after removing my spacebar.....i used electric pre-shave (an alcohol based solutions with a slight amount of lubrication).......with a few drops of that and a q-tip i cleaned the black tarry mass that had accumulated underneath the space bar most likely from spilled pop,coffee,pancake syrup,cat hairs,and only god knows what else...........after replacing it it worked fine mechanically and physically but did not work on the screen......after a day or two it started working .....i guess the alcohol needed to dry out .....i did put two drops down the tube that had a pad at the bottom (contacts underneath it ).........everything working better than new now .......thanks for being here to help.........
