Hi Norman,

The keyboard acts as a text tool when you've clicked in a text box and as a scroll button when you click outside a text box on a web page. Since you say you have a laptop, I'm guessing that you click the text box to type, start typing, and while you're typing, your palm touches the mouse track pad just enough to register as a click while the mouse cursor is elsewhere on the page. I'm not sure if there's a setting to make the space bar stop scrolling altogether but there are settings to make the track pad less sensitive if your track pad manufacturer supports it. For WIndows 7, go to Control Panel>Hardware and Sound and click Mouse under Devices and Printers. As mine is a Synaptics device, this window gives me an extra tab with extra settings. It may be worth checking out yours to see if you can turn down the sensitivity. Some laptops also have a handy key combination to turn the track pad on and off. Mines Function F7, but it's probably manufacturer specific. Check your laptop documentation to see if this might be an option.

Spacebar somewhat jammed


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.

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...

Turn off spacebar scroll


There is generally a function key, which in combination with another key switches the scroll lock. Try looking for "Scroll" or something similar on the keyboard, and see if you can get it to work with the "function" or "fn" key.


or it may be that you need to turn off your caret browsing

I have this switch hooked up to my PC and Xbox 360.. everything works correctly, however when this was given to me.. it had no instructions of sorts.. how do I switch the inputs?


Press the Scroll Lock key twice to toggle between the two machines. (Either the right or left scroll lock key will work) .

There is also an auto-scan mode which is accessed by pressing the Left Shift key and then the Right Shift key within about 0.5 seconds. This shows the screen for each machine alternating at a set rate until you press the Spacebar. The active screen when the spacebar is pressed becomes the active manual.

The manual is available at: http://www.iogear.com/support/dm/manual/GCS62#display .

I hope this helps.

SPACEBAR WILL NOT SPACE


Inspect the spacebar paralell guide wire. When depressing the spacebar on the right or left side extreme the spacebar other side should travel down at the same time. If not the spacebar will not actuate the electronic keyswitch under the spacebar. Most likely, the keyswitch is defective and requires replacement.

Get a Electrical/Electronic solvent spray from RS, give it a good spray (with Power Off!) and operate it lots of times. The spray will evaporate naturally and may remove the gunk! Ian.

Can't/use/my/spacebar/ don/'t/have/recovery/cds/for/satellite/135/using/vista


Hi,
I'm afraid that your recovery CD's won't help you get the space bar working.
There could well be dust, biscuit crumbs, hairs etc that's preventing the spacebar from working, turn the laptop off but don't close the lid, stand the laptop on it's side and get yourself a clean, dry paintbrush.
Start to brush the keys and gently tap the keyboard with the other end of the brush to knock out any foreign objects that could be trapped under the spacebar.
Once your happy it's clean turn the laptop on and see if the spacebar works.
If you still have the same symptoms then the keyboard will have to be replaced.
You can use the on-screen keyboard to substitute for the spacebar for the time being.



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.
