Question about Microsoft Comfort Curve 2000 Keyboard
Hello! I have quite a problem with my Microsoft keyboard: my "w" key is not working anymore (I am writing this after having copy/pasted a w letter from an e-mail...). I kinda need that key and I wouldn't want to buy a new keyboard only because of this. It's a really good keyboard.
I haven't spilled any drinks on it. I tried to clean it a couple of days ago but I don't know if it has something to do with it. A friend told me to open the keyboard and clean it inside but I don't want to damage it even more.
Can you help me please?
Apparently whatever the manufacturer is using for a conductive material reacts with the air to form an oxide or film that interferes with conductivity. This is not a permanent solution to an engineering problem. I have several times taken the keyboard apart (little screws on the back), removed the bubble plastic layer, pealed back the layers and then wiped the "electrical key contacts" with a cotton cloth dampened with isopropyl alcohol. Put it back together and problem fixed-- for a while.
I think i've worn enough of the very thin material off that I can't do that anymore. Which is why I ended up here. Good luck.
