I need to remove keys from my keyboard for cleaning


Most keys should 'pop' off but the tricky bit is getting them back on...
If you remove them I would advise taking a photo of the keyboard ... may sound obvious but putting the unfamiliar keys in the right place can be a test on your memory/recall skills to say the least.
1. First up, you need to use a small screwdriver to carefully remove all keys from your keyboard. Then loosen the rubber pieces from each of them and place them separately.
2. Once all keys are removed from your SAMSUNG NP-N145- keyboard, you can either use an ear bud or a cotton swab dipped in water to gently clean the inner regions of the keyboard. However, make sure that you do not use too much water for this cleaning purpose.
3. After cleaning the inner regions of your keyboard you need to start cleaning the individual keys using a light fluid and foam rubber. After cleaning these pieces you need to leave them alone to get dried up.
4. Once the keys are dried up you can assemble them back into the keyboard carefully. Make sure that the rubber pieces too are assembled in their appropriate places.

Regards

Keyboard stuck


If you are addicted to your laptop, or are an overzealous typist, you may be dismayed when a key on your laptop becomes stuck. However, just because a key gets a little sticky, you don't have to run out to the computer repair shop. There are plenty of practical steps you can take to fix your stuck key right at home that don't require any fancy equipment, just regular household items.

1.Clean the area around the affected key. Use a damp cloth to clean the surface of the key (and surrounding keys) and then use a dry cotton swab to clean under the stuck key. Be careful not to pry the stuck key up with the cotton swab, as this could break the stuck key.

2.Press firmly on the stuck key. Sometimes after small dust or particulates are removed, the stuck key will pop back into place. However, if this is not the case, continue on with Step 3.

3.Pull out the fingernail cleaner extension of your fingernail clippers. This is the flat extension with a little hook on the end. Place the small hook under the left corner of the stuck key. A common reason that keys get stuck is that the collapsible spring becomes off-center. Gently push the key from side to side until it clicks into place. If this does not happen, you will need to disassemble the key completely.

4.Lift the top part of the key with the fingernail cleaner. You will see a collapsible plastic hinge (this is known as the Key Retainer) as well as a little rubber piece. Take both of these out. You will see a flat surface. Run the cotton swab across this surface to remove any dust.

5.Place the key components back in the keyboard. Place the rubber part on top of the metal circle you just cleaned with the cotton swab. Then place the key retainer (big side down) on top of it, and "click" it into place. It is very important to be careful with this step as these small parts break easily. Then place the stuck key on top of these parts and then give it a solid tap to click it into place. Your key should work now.

Keyboard removal


Removing the keyboard is not nessesarly your best option, the keys have a rubber boot under them, and are held in place/returned into their postion by a plastic spring/hinge. It is possible to carefully prise the "sticky" key from the keyboard and then clean the relevant bits under it with a cotton bud soaked in a suitable cleaning fluid. It is important to take note of the position of the plastic hinge in the event that you need to put it back together. To refit the "key", position it in it's place on the keyboard and press down firmly, it should click into place

My ibm thinkpad key ""Q" came loose


Situation 1. The key cap and key retainer fell off the keyboard and you cannot figure out how to assemble them back. keyboard-key-repair-1.jpg Carefully remove the cap from any other working key so the key retainer stays connected to the keyboard.
keyboard-key-repair-2.jpg Take a closer look at the key retainer, it’s connected to the keyboard at four different points.keyboard-key-repair-3.jpg Assemble the disconnected retainer the same way as one on the keyboard and put it back in place.keyboard-key-repair-4.jpg Put the key cap on the retainer and snap the cap back in place.keyboard-key-repair-5.jpg
