You can probably find a keyboard on Ebay that will fit you computer. It is not difficult to change the keyboard, but it does require some expertise.
As a temporary solution you can use an external USB keyboard or a wireless keyboard. They are readily available.

Melcom ST6000 key pad not working on a certain


Are you having problem typing certain numbers on the keypad? Please state you questions a bit more detail.
Commonly, like yesterday, I fixed my niece's keypad by just cleaning.
The procedure is as follows: Power down your machine, unplug the keypad from the machine.
First blow the keypad with a hair dryer without the heat or a blower. This would remove the dust and.
Now take a medium size brush and brush those keys taking the keypad upside down. While doing this tap the backside of the keypad time to time.
The next thing is a bit scary. But if you do it right this is best. Spray some Windex on the keypad and use a tissue paper or a cleaning cloth and clean the keypad on and between the keys.
This solved my niece's keypad.
Hope this helps you too.

1. All key not work.
2. some key work and some other not work.
3. sometimes work and sometimes not work.
1. All key not work
china phone all key not work for this type of problem
(A) though its touch screen phone, first try to disconnect touch panel line from phone pcb or display flex (4 line)
(B) though not solve and keypad direct on pcb first you try to good clean full pcb with cleaner.
© though not solve now you try to format/flash your phone because some time key problem come from software problem.
(D) though still not solve now you check must be CPU. 95% china phone keypad directly going in cpu. and other 5% first going to resistor or capacitor near the cpu or keypad than going to cpu. so now first check them than you can try to re-hot, re-soldering or changing cpu.
(E) though its flex or socket system, first check GND connection continuslay pcb to key panel. next check full flex or socket all line going continuously pcb to key panel or not. also sometimes flex or socket shorted with other line or gnd so check also them.

2. Some key work and some other not work
Some key work and some other is not work for this type of problem
(A) maximum time this problem we face for flex or socket system keypad. so check flex cable and socket all line any line is broken or not and though need change them. and check all key connection on key panel.
(B) though its direact on pcb, some of key line broken internaly. and maximum china phone have alternative test point near every key or with other key on keypad. so check them with multimeter and though need connect to not work key with near testpoint or other working key.
© common problem is keypad metal ball (which is short 2 line on key when we press) sometimes its damage for phone water damage or over key voltage, so clean them or change.
(D) also try to check line continuously from cpu to not working key.

3. sometimes work and sometimes not work

Travelmate 2410 keys not working


You don't need any drivers. Laptops and desktops use an internal win device driver. You can actually find the file called keyboard.sys

What you need in your case in a new keyboard. For your Travelmate they sell for about $50. It takes maybe 10 minutes to change it out. This is something you can do at home. Look on you tube for something like laptop keyboard replace and you can see the process and decide if it is something worth trying. If you google or bing or whatever for travelmate 2410 keyboard or laptop parts you can find several dozen sources. If you look they will have instructions or videos for your travelmate.

My C700 laptop built in keypad doesnt work properly. Other letters generate when i press a certain keypad. For example when i press the letter "m" the number "0" comes out. I suspect the problem started...


open a word processing program and type the word jump, if it types 140* locate and press the function key and numlock key(FN + NUMLOCK) type the word jump again,that should solve the problem.

Key pad


open the front key face by placing a card on the side of the phone. careful not to poke it harder as there are some chips inside the front slide. once it is open, clean it or try to adjust the keypad face then place it back. If problem still exist, bring it to the mobile center for repair.

If the phone programming has been set to 2-way and you have reset the phone. Either by unplugging it and waiting for a few minutes then plugging it back in or from the idle state press the "MUTE" key and then dial R E S E T on the keypad. If after this it will still not work as 2 way then it is most likely a faulty phone.
