It seems that the button below spacebar is broken, there is a small plastic button which teared up sometime due to using the button over time time, try to replace the keybaord, you can check local shops for replacing single space key.

There may be something stuck under the bar like a crumb of biscuit or a bit of grit that stops the bar from free movement.

SOURCE: My laptop seems to have the space bar stuck down.i

I have heard and did experience laptop spacer bar not registering when you press it.

I have a HP zv6000 with this problem, here is how I solved it, as it is a manufacturers design fault:

If you have the maintenance manual (get it of the web free), remove the key board. Place a small block of about 3/16" of folded paper between the underside of the spacer bar pad and the board itself. This it to help raise the spacer bar for the next step.

On the underside center of the spacer bar is a small black silicone rubber button, that may now have enough space between it and the underside of the spacer bar (after applying the sandwich of folded paper). The object of this is to enable you to place a 1/4" square of masking tape between the top of the silicone button and the underside of the spacer bar.

If this can be done, the tape will stay in place very well and in essence raise the spacer bar by the tape thickness, thus aiding in overcoming an unresponsive operation of the spacer bar. You may wish to place two thicknesses of tape in place for positive assurance. I only used one and it seems to work well, but I would recommend two thicknesses of tape, as the bar may still occasionally not register. But trust me it is much better now.

I'm sorry I did not take any pictures and I am not a member here, but I hope someone will find this very useful and post it for all to see.

Good luck to all.

Why does the space bar only have a centre touch point


The reason for this happening is that the metal bar under your spacebar is not properly attached. It's time consuming to properly fix it, but it's an easy fix at that.

All you need to do is remove your spacebar and metal bar (shaped somewhat like a tall C, if held sideways). On the bottom of the spacebar will be approximately 2-3 small clips in which the metal bar will snap into. Once snapped into place, you will want to look at the area where the spacebar goes. There should be two small clips at each end. With the metal bar clipped into the spacebar, you want to place the "ends" of the metal bar under the clips on the keyboard and very carefully place the spacebar into the hole on the keyboard and snap it into place. Now test it out and it should work fine. If not, it's likely that the metal bar came out from under the keyboard clips. The annoying part is snapping the spacebar into place without having the metal piece come out from under those clips, so you may need to perform this task a few times.

Here's an example image...

My blackberry bold 9900 won't scroll down in any list in the phone even the touch screen is not going down , the scroll and the touch are working in any direction but downwards


if you press and hold your menu button and get to your desired application (or use the convenience buttons) there are some applications where you can scroll using the spacebar (only between sections) if its a conversation press "t" (for top) or "b" (for bottom) otherwise if you want to scroll to a conversation you'll have to compose a new sms to desired contact and the extisting conversation will show up (for sms) and as for bbm just search the contact and click it. I had that problem with my curve and didnt even try to get it fixed in the beggining it would do that occasionnally but eventually it just failed completely so i bought the bold. You can try getting it fixed but nothing guarantees it wont happen again. hope this helped

Screen to thin on my laptop computer


Really?

Well get that cat back over there, and tell it to fix it, Wolfman! lol!

(Freakin' kitty, come back here, and fix my laptop screen, or no TV for you tonight! NO,....I'm NOT kiddin'! You can't watch Shrek)

Laptop running, Windows loaded, press, and hold down on the Fn key. Now tap the Spacebar.

Keep tapping until the screen size is correct.

(Cat must have stepped on the Spacebar, and Fn key at the same time)

The spacebar on my type writer is stiff. It doesn"t press.


It is probably jammed by something undernieth. You can try to take the screwdriver and carefully remove the spacebar button (just pull the button up, but please be carefull :) ) and then check is there something under that is jamming the space bar.

You should contact the manufacturer it is already hardware issue.

Problemwith spacebar


If you take all those tiny screws out of the bottom of the keyboard you'll see a circuitboard with three copper "design" spots(usually 3) under the spacebar..........the ones NOT in the center of the spacebar are dirty. You could use some alcohol or acetone to clean the outside "designs".....(warning) Acetone will damage plastic!!!!!!!!
there are a lot of rubber caps that WILL fall out of place when you turn it over) (the actual keys could fall out too) (Be careful when you take off the bottom of the keyboard!!!!) Clean the ones that align with the SPACEBAR!!!! Dont touch or clean anything else that wasn't working....... Gently place the bottom back on and screw down the bottom cover with a cross pattern.....(left>right...top>bottom).....If this dosn't work....the best part is that a new keyboard........is fairly cheap....mtg

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.
