Pop the space key off altogether using a screwdriver or any flat object, make sure the scissor clips that it connects to are not malfunctioning, you can install new clips, but popping it up and reattaching it should fix your problem

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.

The far right and left ends of the spacebar do not work. In order to use the spacebar function, the direct middle of the button has to be pushed down.


You need to reposition (clip) the torssion bar under the spacebar key (a steel wire formed in a wide U shape), it is unhooked, call for a professionnal if you'r not sure how to do this as you may brake the plastic hinge if you don't know what you'r dooing...

I have a mac Laptop and the space button on the bottom of the keyboard is stuck down .. can this be fixed?


It is tricky to repair the space bar. It has a plunger in the middle and is held in place by tension clips. The tension clips are what make the spacebar pop back up. Usually one clip comes loose and the other side still bounces. If the spacebar is stuck down with no bounce, I would check to see if there is something wedged under the spacebar. Get a can of compress air and blow under it, hopefully this will release whatever is under there. Only take the spacebar off carefully without jerking it upwards. If it breaks the clip holder at each end, you will need a new KB.

Good Luck.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

I broke my spacebar off my laptop gateway computer! How do i fix this?


Of all the keys on the keyboard, replacing the SPACEBAR is probably the most difficult. The SPACEBAR is kept even by a metal wire that is inserted into slots on each leg of the plastic bar key. However, you have to get the wire into the slots without depressing the wire. If you push the wire down, you compress the wire and installation becomes impossible. As a general rule, do not remove the SPACEBAR unless absolutely necessary. If you remove the SPACEBAR, remove several surrounding key caps also. This will let you get some tools under the SPACEBAR wire later on. Once the SPACEBAR is reinserted, you can easily replace any of the other key caps.

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.

The rubber plug below the spacebar button is faulty.The button needs to be removed gently and the rubber plug below it which touches the board below should be cleaned.If this does not solve the issue the rubber plug below the button needs to be replaced.Its a common problem.

Spacebar key wont click back on


I find the trick to putting laptop keys back on is to extend the little arms completely up. (it looks like an X from the side) then put a very small screwdriver on at least one side to stop them falling back down, then press the key on firmly but gently. The top of the arms should click into the underside of the key, then you should have its springy-ness back.

you can store phrases by -

2 - hold down the button on either side of the spacebar, type a titile (any character from a - z)(SPECIAL ENTRY light will turn on)
