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.

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.

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.

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.
