Question about Gateway 2520915 Keyboard
The spacer bar is sticking -- what can be done?
I run into a problem after spiling some tea on my keyboard KB0401 gateway
i dried it and it did not work properly so I decided to buy replacement. I bought one on eBay
then I found a solution on internet, somebody suggested to put it in a dishwasher and run the cycle then let it dry completely. It sounded very crazy to me. Probably the same it will to you. Having a new keyboard installed I decided to "dishwash" the old one. Then I let it dry in room for two days and hooked it up to my computer. I was thinking that I am going to be proved, how foolish I was to believe in such a thing. And to my greatest surprise, it worked perfectly good. Now I know, I was stupid to by a new one.
I guess you never start to learn. So for those for you, who will have similar problem, try this solution first.
You might be surprised, as I was. If it does not work then you can proceed with buying a replacement.

You may try removing it and cleaning out any gunk on the key shafts, and possibly tighting the spring if there is one. If that doesn't help you might just have worn it out, and you'll need a new one.
I haven't tried this one myself, but applying a little WD40 might actually help lubricate the key (and loosen gunk), but don't "fill up" your keyboard.
