Key does not want to pop back into position, it got dislodged some how and feels like their is a spring mechanism. Some of the other keys moved back into position fine. It is grabbing the two white keys on either side of it when you press down to play that particular key
The key is broken. There is a notch on the back of all korg non-weighted keys. This notch secures the key into place and loves to snap off.
You have two choices:
1) Take it in and have the key replaced
2) Do it yourself- you can buy the key's from here

key switch needs replacement and when pulled out check the actual switch mechanism behind the key switch you can use a screwdriver to turn it on and start.all key switch must retract to the on for prevention of starter overrunning .
Use a paperclip as a tool to remove the key cover. Do so by first straightening it out and then using a pair of needle-nose pliars, shape one end like a fish-hook.
On a large surface lay out a towel and place the keyboard on top--when you remove the key, it is quite likely a spring will pop out and that towel will hopefully keep it from going far.
CAREFULLY insert the paperclip on one side of the 1 key. (You might find it easier to use two paperclips and have the other on the opposite side.)
Gently but firmly pull straight up on the key and it should pop off. Remove the spring (if it didn't pop out) and set aside.
Use a Q-Tip with a fair amount of rubbing alcohol on it and liberally apply to the rubber-like contact under the mechanism.
Allow to dry completely.
Replace the spring around the center spindle of the key.
Gently replace the key itself, pressing firmly downward until it's back in place.
Turn the computer off, replace the batteries in the keyboard, plug it in and then turn on the computer. It should work fine.
*Note: This is also how to fix spills, etc. But remember as interface devices become more and more inexpensive, their overall lifespan is shortening. With moderate use I would replace a keyboard every 3 years.
Yes it will work that way. Just drill out the retaining clip in the ignition switch that holds the lock cylinder in place. Be care ful with the switch. The new lock will slide right in with key in start position. If it has a rectangular looking metal pin securing it, drill into the plastic part of the switch with a 5/32 drill bit about 1/2 inch back toward the lock cylinder to take out the pop rivet holding the spring loaded pin mechanism in place. The spring comes out and push the pin down with a flatblade and pull lock out......Mike
Turn the key to on and move the shifter out of park,and back into park a couple times till you feel/hear the key click. With age the mechanism can be sloppy. Sometimes you can turn the key from the accessory position and back to off a couple of times till you hear /feel the click, to get the key to release. Check the side of the console my 94 colt had an oval cover, the size of a silver dollar, you could pop off and manually release the cable hold on the ignition. If you still can not get the key out unbolt the console and unhook the cable manually and you will never have the trouble again.
If the locking mechanism fails or no power is available, it is possible
to open the boot using a long thin screwdriver through the lower right
licence plate mounting hole.
Follow the linkage rod from the lock mechanism itself going left,
towards the centre, to where it joins the catch mechanism and push here.
It can help to shine a light through the left side licence plate hole,
and also to get a second screwdriver in here to take a little of the
tension off the catch itself, though not too much or it will spring back
Hi, When you say "the key has been replaced". Are you meaning the cylinder lock with a new key? If so pull the cylinder lock back out and make sure the lock is in the right position to engage the starting mechanism. There would have been instructions with the new key and cylinder.
Most of the time, when laptop keys are popped off of a keyboard, they can't easily be re attached. The good news is that an entire new keyboard is not too expensive, approx $15-20 on ebay. I bought one recently for my daughter's HP, and found instructions to swap it out online, and the whole process was about a 15 minute job. Give it a try!
If you push the tray closed and it simply springs back out, then the internal latch is either jambed open or broken off. Open a paperclip and push an end into the black hole you see on the door bezel. push gently in the hole, you feel the clip contact the release mechanism. You may have to push on it several times to see if it can be dislodged (if it's not broken), if the door is still popping open, you may have to change out your drive.
I have a 93 and had the same problem. It is your 'Lock Cylinder'. To replace it, you will have to take off the steering wheel. if you have an airbag equipped spirit, remove that first after disconnecting the battery and waiting 15+ minutes. on the right side there will be a spring loaded mechanism you need to push down th a small tool. make sure your keys are ut and its in the off position. the cylinder should pop right out. get a new lock cylinder at an auto parts store. price varies, from 15 to 80 bux. beware and test the new mechnaism a lot if you can before you pop the new cylinder in. I put a new one in and it got stuck on run. it is a nightmare to take out when in run. The new one pops in with the spring loaded mechanism fitting into the hole. wiggle the steering wheel if it doesnt set all the way down at first. Replace steering wheel and airbag. test from drivers side.
