Could be some residue from a spill on the keyboard, or could be some old rubber thats not flexible enough. If you carefully flick a key off, you can investigate what's going on under there. The keys snap on and off rather easily. If you see anything sticky on there, use an electronics cleaner, or even some rubbing alcohol on a damp cloth or que-tip to clean it up. Recommend turning off computer completely and removing battery. And go easy on the cleaner :-), liquids and electronics do not play nicely together!

If none of that works, might have to start looking for a replacement keyboard for the laptop.

Have a Toshiba Satellite L505. My key was sticking, so I removed it. Under the A key are two smaller plastic pieces. Now I can't figure out how to reattach the key. Thanks!


LOL, it's much easier to just replace the keyboard. You can spend hours trying to get that key back on even if it can be put back on. You might have broken one of the little plastic catches.

Can sticky key be cleaned on toshiba laptop satellite L655D


It can, but it depends on whether the key is physically sticking, or there is damage to the connector that runs from the keyboard to the motherboard.

You can physically unsnap the key from the retaining clip by gentle force and clean the area underneath with an alcohol based solvent and see if that works

Keyboard malfunction


Sounds like some water or other liquid got into the keyboard or could be that some keys are sticking. With the laptop turned off. Run your fingers thru all the keys going from left to right, up to down. This will ensure that if any keys are sticking that they will become unstuck.

Turn on the laptop and if you still have the problem then the keyboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

Some keys on my keyboard keep sticking


hi Linda - keys stick over time because dust, crumbs, etc. get under them and cause them to stick.

Many times you can just repeatedly hit the sticking key a dozen or so times and restore it to its original status. Actually what u r doing is pulverizing the dust or crumbs into micro pieces..

Also try carefully tipping the open laptop upside down on a piece of newspaper or bed sheet and tapping it as if u were burping a baby.

Try these things and let me know. If I don't hear back cause it is resolved, kindly score my answer as a fix ya! thanks.
