Question about Microsoft K5100141 Keyboard

1 Answer

The "@", "2" key on a wireless 3000 won't respond

All keys on the key board, except the "@", "2" key work properly. I've cleaned the keyboard with a compressed air duster, rebooted, reinstalled etc. It seems to be a mechanical issue. How difficult is it to open and repair? Or am I missing something easier? Thanks.

Some keyboards you can pop the keys off. There may be a crumb lodged. I had this problem before and thats what it was. If not...I don't know then. If you take your keyboard apart make sure you payattention to where everything goes back to gether. I took mine apart but mine is an older one.

hi im josh in cebu phils.may i help you? Friend try to do this solutions it will help you.
Problem: You Type One Key, and a Different Character Appears Onscreen This is an interesting problem with four possible causes:
  • You really didn't type what you thought you did. Look at your fingers. Now look at the screen. Now look at your fingers again. Is everything the way it should be? Good!
  • If you have a programmable keyboard, you or someone else might have reprogrammed the keys so that they don't do what they normally do. Refer to the keyboard's manual for instructions about how to reprogram the keys.
  • If you're in a specific software program, some programs let you reprogram the keyboard from within the program. When you exit the program, your keyboard should be back to normal.
  • It's possible your keyboard is broken. Try hooking another keyboard up to your system and see how it works.
Problem: Your Keyboard Isn't Responding Properly What do you do if you hold down a key and it repeats too fast or too slow? Windows lets you make adjustments to your keyboard via the Keyboard Properties dialog box.
Just open the Control Panel and select Keyboard, and then select the Speed tab. Adjust the Repeat Delay and Repeat Speed settings to your liking, and then test your settings by clicking in the blank box and holding down a key. After you have things adjusted to your liking, click OK.
Problem: Your Wireless Keyboard Isn't Responding Properly This is the same issue as with a wireless mouse—your batteries are getting weak. Replace the batteries in your wireless keyboard to put things right.
It's also possible that you're experiencing interference with some other wireless device. Try moving your wireless receiver or the offending device, or turning off the other device while you're at the computer.
Just try these solutions friend. Hope I helped you Good luck

THE KB BOARD NEEDS TO BE SERVICED, BY REMOVING THE SCREWS OR SNAP CLIPS THAT HOLD THE KB TOGETHER, CLEAN THE CURCIUT BOARD OR PLASTIC FILM WITH SOME ACOLAHOL AND LENT FREE TOWEL,
USE A CAN OF COMPRESSED AIR TO REMOVE THE DIRT FROM THE KEY SWITCHS.
PUT IT BACK TOGETHER,

GO INGO CONTROL PANEL OPEN DEVICE MANAGER, GO DOWN TO KEYBOARD AND CHECK FOR ANY TYPE OF UPDATES OR AND CHANGES TO THE PROGRAM.

IF YOU CAN FIND THE KEYBOARD TEST THAN TEST THE KEYBOARD TO MAKE SURE ALL KEYS ARE WORKING PROPERLY.

Once I take the keyboard apart, and brush off the 3 plastic layers underneath the keyboard, it works fine.
There are 14 screws on the back that you need to remove, a couple of them are hidden underneath warning / instruction stickers so you have to feel for them and cut the stickers off with a knife.
