Since this happened to me accidently a few
times and I saw this thread, I thought my 25 cents could help others. I like the keyboard and it is troublesome to
send it back for repair for a little thing like this. In my case, I was left with the square black key
top and a pair of white hinges detached.
You should replace the hinges properly in the base board first and after
that press the key top gently and uniformly until you hear a couple of
clicks. Make sure you are not irritated
when you start this job and do not apply extreme force. It needs a little patience and fiddling. Unless you are lucky or an expert, it takes a
number of times until you get it.
The two hinges need to be inserted in the
metal clips of the base only after they are put together, not individually. Each hinge has two little rods on the narrow
side and two little rods on the wider side.
The wider side rods face up and will attach to the key top later. By now, you should be sure which rods of the
hinges are up, towards you. Next, the hinges
have to be attached to each other in the middle, like a foldable beach stool. You observe that one of them has a middle pin
on each side, whereas the other has a corresponding cavity in the middle.
At the time you attach the hinges to each
other in the middle, it has to be in such a way that the top part of each of
them is smooth, that is, the part that will contact the key top. The side of the hinge that contacts the base has
a little tongue between the two narrow rods.
This tongue should face down in both hinges. You are now ready to place the little beach stool
in the keyboard base.
In my case I inserted the hinge with the open
part into the right metal clip and next inserted the rectangular opening to the
left metal clip of the base. Whichever
you do first is easy, but the second one might need a little help with a tiny screwdriver,
or a tool with a similar effect. You
might need a few attempts.
Now, your little hinges are attached to the
board base and are not flat. They
actually look like the legs of an open beach stool. Note which side of the key top is correct, it
is annoying to go back to the beginning because you put the character upside
down. It is time to press the key top gently
and uniformly until you hear a couple of clicks. Unless there was serious damage to the board
base or the parts we just mentioned, the key should work as smooth as the other
