Key came off while cleaning. How to replace?

My ,< key has come off completely. It doesn't look broken, it just looks like it popped off. It has a couple little plastic connectors of some kind under the key. I am lost on how to re-install this key. Any blown-up instruction pics or illustrations out there? Thanks

Hey there Randall, the inside of the key should have all the connectors required therefore you should be able to orientate it correctly above and just pop it back in place with some downward force. If this isnt working, try pulling up what may be left in the place where the key was. If you can get something out try reattaching that to the base of the key and then begin placement again. If unable to accomplish this then the plastic connectors have boken and it is time for a new keyboard. Nothing lasts forever. Good luck!

Nope, the KB isn't completely clean - you have a key that is staying stuck down - (usually some dirt in it. Work out which keys - showly working through each of them - then pop the top off that key, and clean under it. Or get a Replacement KB.

My laptop key popped out.


Hi,

I think it would be better if you decide if you want to change your keyboard or not. If you decide that you want to change the keyboard and have it replace by yourself you can go to this site, check if the part is available or not and order it if ever.

Hope it helps.

My radio wont shut off and the door keeps dinging after key is removed


This is usually a case of a broken wire in the driver's side door sill, on the New Body Style 2004 ( not a lightning or Heritage ).

Pop the door sill cover up, and you are looking for a purple or blue w/ white stripe wire where 3 wires are spliced. The splice tape looks like hockey tape, so water can still get in.

Here are 2 pictures of the broken wire locations

Gateway notebook , broken key on keyboard


If you are able to, try and pop the key out of the keyboard with a flat-head screwdriver. Here's a guide on a generic Gateway. If there's no room in-between the keys, flip the computer off (while it's off) and see if there's screws in the back. This method concerns replacing the whole keyboard, and I'm not completely certain about how to do it. I'm sure google would help you out there.

Broken bey on computer keyboard


If the key base or the key support has actually broken you will have replace the keyboard, they are inexpensive on ebay...around 15-25 bucks. If the key just popped off, try to rock it back on its mount either from side to side or top to bottom, you will be able to hear and/or feel it pop back in its mount.

Key popped off


Can you please look underneath the key to determine if the plastic has been damaged/broken. If it is then you will need a new key, or possibly switch with another less used key, if you don't want to purchase a replacement.

The W key


there is usually a scisor hinge or rubber column spring.if this is undamaged you should just be able to push the key back on, however there are usually tiny pegs which clip into the key which tend to break off, if these are broken you may be able to order a replacement from the manufacturer, you can order a replacement keyboard (complete) either from the manufacturer or from a spares company
