Question about Saitek Eclipse II

The " T " and the " Y " require more pressure

For some reason, the t and the y started requiring more pressure to get them to type the letter. I keep having to go back and type in the T's and Y's. They work, the just require more pressure that normally used when typing.

Re: The " T " and the " Y " require more pressure

It's a design fault - I opened it up to have a look and the bottom plastic plate cracks after just a few week's use.
I suggest a) another non-Saitek keyboard or stiffening the bottom plate somehow.

Re: The " T " and the " Y " require more pressure

You're not the only one to experience this problem... I too have the same problem and it's EXTREMELY annoying when typing, as I'm a fast typer as it is and I'm constantly having to go back to type in the missing letters!

I've tried popping out all the keys to wash them but to no avail. Unfortunately, it looks like a design fault or something if more than one person are experiencing it.

It's a real shame because it's an excellent keyboard!

My keyboard is approximately 6 to 8 weeks old!!

Re: The " T " and the " Y " require more pressure

What kind of keyboard are you using?? is it from a laptop or pc? if it is an external keyboard, try to detatch the y and t keys from the keyboard using anything that is thin (eg. knife, pen, etc.). clean it... and put it back by just pushing it back..

Keyboard spanish

If your main input language is Spanish you should use a Spanish keyboard (Spain, Argentina, etc.) Bu if you need tildas infrequently, you may find it easier to have a list of ASCII codes for the letters that require a tilda. With the ASCII codes you type ALT + code.
Another possibility id the installation of a virtual Spanish keyboard which you will pull down to select the special letters.

I would suggest you type buy Dell Inspiron keyboard in to google an do the same on Ebay.
I did this for my friends laptop, the keyboard cost less than 10 pounds and had 2 ribbon connectors to remove the coffee stained old one.
You will need to buy some micro screwdrivers to open up the laptop.
No special skills are required to change keyboards, just give yourself a good bit of room on a desk to have the removed screws to hand.

Sounds like the windows key is stuck down, pressing start+r opens run, start+e opens explorer etc. The start key being the one between control and alt.
