Just separate the retainer from the spacebar as good as you can and then put it in the little hooks on the left and right sides and then angle the key a little bit and snap it on. It took a while for me but I did it! :)

The spacebar on my laptop doesn't always leave spaces between words, what is wrong with it?

Inside the key, there is a metal bar the makes the spacebar key depress from anywhere you press it. Either this bar as unclipped from its hinges or they have broken.

Why does the space bar only have a centre touch point

The reason for this happening is that the metal bar under your spacebar is not properly attached. It's time consuming to properly fix it, but it's an easy fix at that.

All you need to do is remove your spacebar and metal bar (shaped somewhat like a tall C, if held sideways). On the bottom of the spacebar will be approximately 2-3 small clips in which the metal bar will snap into. Once snapped into place, you will want to look at the area where the spacebar goes. There should be two small clips at each end. With the metal bar clipped into the spacebar, you want to place the "ends" of the metal bar under the clips on the keyboard and very carefully place the spacebar into the hole on the keyboard and snap it into place. Now test it out and it should work fine. If not, it's likely that the metal bar came out from under the keyboard clips. The annoying part is snapping the spacebar into place without having the metal piece come out from under those clips, so you may need to perform this task a few times.

Here's an example image...

The far right and left ends of the spacebar do not work. In order to use the spacebar function, the direct middle of the button has to be pushed down.

You need to reposition (clip) the torssion bar under the spacebar key (a steel wire formed in a wide U shape), it is unhooked, call for a professionnal if you'r not sure how to do this as you may brake the plastic hinge if you don't know what you'r dooing...

My spacebar is not working. How can I fix it?

You should contact the manufacturer it is already hardware issue.

If your unit is under warranty then they will replace the entire keyboard free.

Space bar reassembly

you can replace from any keyboard that is no more working. just remove the metal bar and replace it with yours. Except you want to buy another keyboard.

You can also try fixing it later, you might get a solution on your own, maybe you are exhausted or worn out. Just relax your brain and by the time you go back to it, You might just get it right this time around.

Wish you the best of luck.

My acer aspire one keyboard spacebar is stuck but doesnt appear that it is. how do i fix it?

Gently pry it up and it should come off - there may be a metal hinge system which supports it - check that the prong which hits the contact button isn't bent or damaged and refit the bar.

Space bar is sticky du to liquid accident ( soft

Get a Electrical/Electronic solvent spray from RS, give it a good spray (with Power Off!) and operate it lots of times. The spray will evaporate naturally and may remove the gunk! Ian.

Took spacebar off to clean up a pop spill...metal bar NOT attatch

There might be a metal wire if it is missing, which snaps to the keyboard, you may need a new keyboard.
If you are unsure, you should probably thake it to your local computer repair shop.
Good Luck.

Lid does not close locked fully open

I had the same problem, you will excuse my english but I think you might be intrested on the answer even with this little inconvenience.

It seems that those "arm" like things that help the lid to move up and down get stuck if you pull them over a certain limit.

So... in order to fix it we'll have to disarm them.

If you feel experienced enough to do it, and your guarantee is already gone and you don't wanna pay for a technician AND you are willing to get some stuff broken (which I didn't break) here's the answer:

First you'll need to open some of the covers of the printers:

1. The Memory Card reader cover

2. The side cover (on the same side of the memory card reader)

Once you do it, you must unplug the data cables on the rear of the scanner (there are three flat data cables, and 1 power cable (the top one) that needs to be unplugged in order to remove the cover.

Once you removed the data cables, you can pull up the cover (yeah, there are no screws, if you can't get it off, there might be some screws on your model on the base of the "arms" that help the cover move up and down that must be unscrewed)

then you need to unclip the "arms" from the cover, this is very easy, just push down the tab and pull them.

(REMEMBER you must never force any part, if you get stuck on any part, just quit and call a techician)

so now you got both "arms" or the black thing holding the cover in your hands, you'll notice a metal part joining them, you'll need to pull it off, I used a pocket knife to pull it and then just used a screwdriver.

CAUTION: when you finish pulling that off, it may pop open.

Basically the system works with 4 parts: 2 parts of the arm, a spring and a little plastic thing inside that works like some kind of knee.

If you manage to put the whole thing back together you'll get it fixed, just put everything back together and it will work.

I couldn't hehe, so I decided just to remove the "knee" plastic thing and put the arm back together, I did that for both arms and put everything back together.

if you don't put the little plastic thing over the spring, you won't be able to open the lid and make it stay open by itself (which is what I did) but everything will work again. If you manage to put everything back together, you're my hero cause I think that piece must be assambled by a machine and it is really hard to do it with your bare hands.

So my printer works perfectly again, yeah, I need to hold the cover to change the cartridges, but hey, a little extra excercise is not bad.

The only thing I didn't do was to put the "knee" things. If I find a way to put them in the mechanism, it will work back to normal, meanwhile, I have my printer working perfectly now.
