    For the Logitech diNovo wireless bluetooth keyboard, key replacement is a challenge, but possible. Although Logitech will state it is a non-user serviceable keyboard in which keys cannot be replaced, it is possible. It does require patience and a delicate touch, both challenges for me, but I didn't want to spring for another keyboard since I like this one so much and everything works well. This keyboard uses a scissor spring which attaches to the keyboard via two open ended hooks. The springs attach to the key via male pegs on the spring and female clips on the back of the key. These clips are in each of the four corners. Step 1: Gently remove the spring from the key, taking care not to break any of the clips. You can use a small screwdriver or a stiff paper clip. Step 2: Insert the scissor spring onto the keyboard body with the pegs that go into the key up. Step 3: With the key perpendicular to the keyboard, insert ONE SIDE of the spring's pegs into the key's clips. Step 4: Carefully pivot the key towards the other side of the spring. GENTLY snap the other side into the clip's pegs by pushing down on the key.

There is usually a scisor hinge or rubber column spring.if this is undamaged you should just be able to push the key back on, however there are usually tiny pegs which clip into the key which tend to break off, if these are broken you may be able to order a replacement from the manufacturer, you can order a replacement keyboard (complete) either from the manufacturer or from a spares company

Yes, that plastic mechanism actually creates the problem. If your key is working properly then you can use this video tutorial to fix it back in place, but if the key itself is broken then you can also buy a replacement keys. Its really not a big deal. You can buy new replacement laptop keys at , for $4.99. Check it out. Helped me fix my "R" key last month.

After 2 months of use my "V" key just fell off. No prying, no dropping and this laptop is immaculately clean. Just a broken "V" key. It will not snap back into place. How do I get this fixed?

usually if you push the key back then put a little pressure in it. it will snap back to the keyboard. if nothing happens. i advised you to contact your manufacturer and have your laptop repaired if it is still under warranty

One key fell off

You should be able to place it on the retainer and press it on, you may need to move it around a bit. If it just flat won't snap back on, check the retainer to make sure that the pins that fit into the clips on the back of the key aren't bent or broken, and check the clips on the key to see if the sides are bent or broken. If the pins or sides of the clips are bent, take a small flathead screwdriver and straighten them. If they're broken it will need to be replaced.
