Question about Logitech G15

Logitech G15 spacebar

Basically i took the keys out of my Logitech G15 to clean the underneath.
i didnt realise how fragile the plastics under the spacebar was and one of the top parts of the little holders for the metal support bar snaped, now my spacebar dips (and consequently wont work when i press 1 side of the spacebar.

Anyone know of a repair kit or how have people overcome this problem before.... seems wastefull to buy a new one just because of this but at the same time it will get so annoying

SOURCE: logitech cordless keyboard erratic after cleaning keys

seems to be that you may have accidentally swept some dirt underneath the keys.
try pressing each key individually in word and narrow down the affected key or keys, then remove the affected keys (using a keyboard key removal tool, or very carefully by hand) and clean underneath the key with a small dry clean brush both under the key and the board section it lay in, then replace the key and type the key again, if that has no luck then try the process again.

hope this helps

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.

After changing the batteries and cleaning the corrosion out of the battery case, I pressed the connect button on the Logitech receiver, then the red restart button on the underside of the keyboard and it was fixed!

SOURCE: Dead Micro-switch

Unless the mouse uses a real oddball microswitch, it would be fairly simple to unsolder the bad switch and replace it with a new one. I have done this on many mice. You can check with computer shops in your area and see if any of them might try the repair. (A TV shop could also do it, but they're not likely to have a few old mice lying around to take a replacement switch from, while a computer shop probably would.) I have no idea what labor rate the shop would charge, but it would certainly exceed the cost of a new mouse. (The shop I formerly worked at would have charged $20, but this was 5 years ago.) However, it might be worth the cost if what you have can't be replaced with something comparable.

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.

Spacebar problems


You need to reattach the rubber nipple facing up. It's the part that makes contact with the board to signal to the computer the spacebar has been pressed. Most of them are free floating under the key or even gluing it on would be fine. The keys can be a bit tricky to pop off. Use a plastic pry bar, you an find these online for a couple dollars.

The far right and left ends of the spacebar do not work. In order to use the spacebar function, the direct middle of the button has to be pushed down.


You need to reposition (clip) the torssion bar under the spacebar key (a steel wire formed in a wide U shape), it is unhooked, call for a professionnal if you'r not sure how to do this as you may brake the plastic hinge if you don't know what you'r dooing...

Logitech G15 Keyboard not detecting WoW or other games


The follwoing threads talks about your problem, with solutions posted:
http://forums.logitech.com/logitech/board/message?board.id=hardware&thread.id=71

Basically,
  1. You need the latest WOW patch to get G15 LCD support.
  2. The applet for WOW launches at the Login screen for WOW. Until then it will not show up at all in the LCD control panel for the G15
  3. The search you did for WOW is only for the profile which does not do anything with the LCD. It only handles programming the G-Keys. When the applet launches it should display "World of Warcraft" in the LCD. Nothing about the profile launching. That's a different thing.
  4. Even though the applet for WOW is running, it may be disabled in the G15 software. To check this launch WOW and go to the login screen. Then go to the G15 LCD Control panel and make sure the box next to the WOW applet is checked.
Basically, for other software/games which don't have built-in support for the G-15, you'll need to download a custom LCD applet in order to display specific software/game info on your LCD when you launch that software/game. You can find good applet at g15forums.com.


Hope this helps

Took spacebar off to clean up a pop spill...metal bar NOT attatch


There might be a metal wire if it is missing, which snaps to the keyboard, you may need a new keyboard.
If you are unsure, you should probably thake it to your local computer repair shop.
Good Luck.

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.

Broken Key


You could look for a key that would physically fit from another keyboard that you'd "slaughter" for that part. The dimensions must fit, and the fastening method. Here's what you'd do to remove the key, and this would also give you some info on the fastening method: http://theonegreatx.com/2006/12/08/how-to-clean-your-logitech-g15/
