I would clean them with 70% Isopropyl Alcohol (Rubbing Alcohol) and get the gunk and dust out by using a can of canned air. The canned air should do the job.

Thanks,

Using rubbing alcohol seems kind of dangerous; it does contain 30% water and may mix with other contaminants to form a conductive slurry. If the keyboard is not sealed against incursion by liquids, it could mess up the main board. Entire replacement keyboards are often on eBay for very low prices and they are not difficult to replace as long one is careful and only a little handy.

Drivers door lock unlocks intermittently with key fob


Steve, I'm AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

When a door lock is active intermittently it can be a couple of things. (1) The door lock actuator can be a the point of going bad.(2) The Key Fob unlock button can be bad and you have to press it several time to work OR if it is unlocking the door by itself at time a sticking button can cause this issue as well. Hope this helps and have an awesome day. If you like visit my auto repair website here: http://www.bigasautorepair.com/

How to fix loose usb on Axiom 49 keyboard


Wow...just loose or intermittent as well? Most of these jacks and connectors are directly soldered to the main circuit boards which could mean broken and/or intermittent connection. Check your warranty status but if expired...to resolder check for a local electronics repair shop to help as the disassembly and intricate work may be beyond many DIY fans.

Dora 204 SP Olivetti Typewriter I have an intermittent sticking returns key Causes paper to run on. Can I do anything about it, or can you tell me of a Service Centre in Hampshire n UK.


hello

take Q-tip cotton , apply small portion on hammer letter keys and carriage -- moving parts only

dip and smear into vasaline, wipe off excess. apply to the keys sticking or to carriage return key . this is amechanical sticking , so apply to where the part (carriage or moving part) applies. Also, take a plain paper , keep tapping the key and then return key carriage , until sticking stops and until the vasaline dissipates . repeat the typing for about 1-2 mintes until excess vasaline is no longer present on paper after typing.

repeat this process anytime the keys stick

hpe this helps

A few keys fail intermittently as a group


Hardware problem, keyboard is shorting out at different times. Keyboard needs to be replaced. Possible some water got on it or just over time keys tend to stick from dirt, dust, etc.

Bios continous beep, repeated ////, intermittent touchpad issue


The beeping when powering on is from the keyboard buffer being filled up by a stuck key. Same thing in windows. Best bet is to just replace it as it is pretty cheap.

Here is a link for one for $25

Easy to swap out also , here is a step by step
