I have a TEVION flexible keyboard model # MD85618. I can not get the side # key's to work? Everything else works on the keyboard besides this. I tried hitting NumLoc on the keypad and nothing. Any suggestions on what to try or know of where I can find a Manual?

Acer aspire 3620 keyboard problem number key wont work only symbols in shift mode appearing

This indicates one of your Shift keys is stuck. It's not the top of key, but the contacts below are connected, even when you are not pressing the key.
Repairing a laptop keyboard is not easy, because in most models the keyboard is sealed.
One option would be to replace the keyboard. But this could be costly.
The other option is to disable the keyboard and use an external keyboard, a flexible (rubber) keyboard is recommended if the laptop travels with you.

The keys: 9 / O / L / . are not functioning. all surrounding keys work for except these 4 keys is there something locked or is there a function key i can press to make them work?

These keys share a scan line in the keyboard. There is a break in the scan line or a bad connection between the keyboard panel and the controller circuit board inside the keyboard (or the motherboard in a laptop computer). Most keyboards use a pair of flexible plastic sheets with the scan lines printed in silver ink. These are attached to the controller with a "flexible printed circuit" connector. Sometimes the material tarnishes where it makes its connections there and the keyboard fails as you have described.

Most of these connectors have a friction lock that is disengaged by sliding it about 1 mm along the length of the flat ribbon cable going into the connector (there is a stop at this point - do not force the lock past it). The lock looks like a frame around the top of the connector box and has a slot for the cable. Once the lock is disengaged, the cable will slide out. Now you can clean the contacts on the cable (both sides) by polishing them with a white pencil eraser. When that is done, seat the cable back in the connector and push the lock back in until it makes a soft click or bottoms out on the connector shell. Once in a while there will be a connector that is friction fit - there will be no lock, but the cable will have a stiff reinforcing sheet attached to it. Very rarely, the lock will be a flip-up tab on the side of the connector - these are usually used only on smaller, narrower ribbons.

Avoid touching the circuitry on the controller board - it is easily damaged by static electricity.

If this doesn't work, you'll probably have to replace the keyboard.

The screen on my hp laptop is black ... the computer seems fine because I plugged in the screen from my pc and everything is working fine ... what can I do to get my laptop screen to turn on!??!

It is quite possible that the link of the LCD has broken up maybe on the hinge side. So it will be important to have the laptop taken apart to check the continutiy of the flexible membrane strip fromt he mother board to the display section.
If there is no break then the possibility of the display drivers being faulty is high which might require help from a reputed service centre.

Keyboard Not Working

It sounds like maybe the keyboard died if that can happen in a laptop. Or maybe a connection came loose inside the unit. Was it dropped or anything like that? Laptops are hard to repair because everything inside is very small and delicate. If it needs a keyboard replacement it won't be cheap. Maybe a driver got turned off somehow. Look in the BIOS and the device manager to check that. Hopefully it is that simple. You could always carry an external keyboard around with you which would kind of defeat the purpose of having a laptop in the first place. I've seen these flexible roll-up keyboards that aren't too big. That might be an option.

From left hand side 10 keys not working

You might check settings first. The keyboard might be set to a mode where those keys have some function besides notes. Try a master reset and see if hings start working.

If it was working and now those keys don't, a fault has probably developed. There may be problems with connections to the keyboard, or there's been a component failure.

Sometimes getting into these things and accessing the keyboard is a challenge, and it's possible to do more harm than good. If it needs repair, you're probably better off taking the keyboard to a musician's store in your area and asking them to give you an estimate for the work (or to recommend a servicer if they don't do the work themselves).
