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.........

Wired and onscreen keyboard space bar doesnt work


Keyboards are cheap. If you need to use this one then you will need to carefully pop the spacebar key out, turn the keyboard upside down and give it a good shake. You will see a ton of junk fall out ;)

Spacebar sticking on older ibm netvista


Best solution, replace keyboard. If you are technically agile, you can very carefully remove the space bar while carefully noting where all the springs and things under it go. a few drops of silicone on the plunger pieces and you should be good to go when you put it back together. A feat not for the faint of heart. If you have plastic bubble contacts, replace the keyboard.

Stuck keys thanks to girlfriends Margarita.board still works but keys stick. Getting rid of her want to save the keyboard. How can I clean? new sony viao wireless keyboard for desktop.


Not sure if this is different to a std keyboard but in cases like this I'd

Turn keyboard over, remove retaining screws noting position and order and take out the plastic membrane, wash thoroughly with mild detergent and dry thoroughly. Remove keys in turn, clean with warm water dry and replace. Any other stickiness an be removed with isopropyl alcohol or similar and a q tip or lintless cloth , gently clean. reassemble.

Problemwith spacebar


If you take all those tiny screws out of the bottom of the keyboard you'll see a circuitboard with three copper "design" spots(usually 3) under the spacebar..........the ones NOT in the center of the spacebar are dirty. You could use some alcohol or acetone to clean the outside "designs".....(warning) Acetone will damage plastic!!!!!!!!
there are a lot of rubber caps that WILL fall out of place when you turn it over) (the actual keys could fall out too) (Be careful when you take off the bottom of the keyboard!!!!) Clean the ones that align with the SPACEBAR!!!! Dont touch or clean anything else that wasn't working....... Gently place the bottom back on and screw down the bottom cover with a cross pattern.....(left>right...top>bottom).....If this dosn't work....the best part is that a new keyboard........is fairly cheap....mtg

Since i washed my keyboard with water is been acting weired.when i press spacebar it turns out enter so i have to hold ctrl before it becomes space why?


Common keyboards are nothing but a bunch of switches and the currents that flow inside of keyboard are very small. If you 'washed' it as you stated, you have probably gotten moisture into it along with some contaminents you wanted to remove and it is causing currents to flow where they shouldn't.
Don't do this to your next keyboard; if you want to clean it, use a dampened clean paint brush followed immediately by a clean towel.
Never put liquid anything on these, they aren't designed for use while snorkeling. 
Standard keyboards cost <$20 and I have gotten them free after rebate so you can shop these pretty well.

My acer laptop keys are sticking and to hard to push down. I need to replace them how do I do that?


no they don't need replacing they just need cleaning, you can remove the panel that goes accross the top of the keyboard (above the F keys) if you remove this panel you can remove the keyboard too, it is connect to the laptop with a ribbon cable that you can remove. when the keyboard is free all you have to do is run it under warm water (not hot) and clean the keys gently with washing up liqiud that you use for the dishes, keep on running warm water on it until the keys are free (you may have to repeat this process if the sticking persists) Now for the important part, you have to leave the keyboard to dry for at least 24-48 hours in a warm dry room before you can put it back in, press on the keys periodically to make sure they are free
