Aim well and push down if you haven't already tried that.
There should be some resistance then when overcome, kind of a feeling of 'sanpping' into their seat.

If you have in fact snapped off the plungers on which the keys mount, a new keyboard is in order.

For the rare cleaning, I use two 2-3" new paint brushes.
The first I dampen (not wet) with window cleaner (the liquid, not a piece of software to clean up files <grin>) and clean the brush a couple of times during the keyboard cleaning.
Then I take softer paper towels that don't easily shed lint and use the 2nd brush to push it between the keys to pick up the trace of remaining moisture.
Unless the print on the keys is really crappy, they should retain their characters.

My lenovo z560 laptop's key is broken,is it possible to exchange only single key of laptop keypad insted of replacing whole keypad,

Welcome to FixYa!
it seems that you are having problem with the keyboard on the laptop, unfortunately, even if you send it to the repair center of Lenovo, they will replaced the whole keyboard since there's no particular part number for just one key on the keyboard so they usually replaced the whole of it.
Hope this will help. Thank you for using FixYa!

Keypad freeze

Did the key pad froze before you took the battery off? If so, it mean the keypad is damaged. If you have insurance, you may call customer service and have it replaced for a new one.

If it frozed after you shoot it off, you might call customer service from another phone and they might help you to unlock your phone.
