Sound stuttering


Hi, This and a lot of similar keyboards have gold flashed pads on the PCB and the keys press one or two rubber caps, with conductive pads in them, down.
Clean the pads with isopropanol, (and nothing else) and it will be cured 99% of the time. If a few notes do not work, especially after heavy use, then the rubber caps can be replaced.
Taking the keyboard apart is long winded because of the number of screws involved.
The job its self is simple enough, but take note of the order things go in and where the screws go.
Hope this helps, Chris.

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 keys are either not ttttttttttttttyping at aall or do like the t above. More pressure on keys helps.


I assume you have windows.
open start menu
all programs
accessories
ease of access (also called accessibility on xp)
select on-screen keyboard
its a bit slow but it will get you by until you can fix the problem or get a new keyboard. below are three possible alternative solutions:
1. If it is a wireless keyboard then try to change the channel its a little button on the bottom of the keyboard.
2. If its a wireless keyboard change the batteries.
3. If the above two solutions do not help then either carefully take apart the keyboard and clean everything (if you suspect something was spilled on the keyboard) or if its just an old keyboard then the contacts need cleaning they look like little round rubber dots on the bottom of the keys mashing little grid like symbols on the clear plastic sheets. I usually clean the clear plastic symbol parts with a rubber pencil eraser very gently and the black dots below the keys i clean with just a paper towel. I don't use cleaning solutions and try and keep it all dry. remember less scrubbing is more. Look at the unused keys like z to see how they are supposed to look. and good luck. but its easier just to buy a new one.

Your on the right track. Check for grease on the contact. Clean the circuit board surface with alcohol and a q-tip and also the rubber/metalized switch.Wipe clean with other end of q-tip. Try the key again.

Key button got pluged off


You probably broke a little tab that connects the letter to the actual button.
Just get some of that thick (foam) double sided tape. regular double sided tape wont work.

good luck

The rubber plug below the spacebar button is faulty.The button needs to be removed gently and the rubber plug below it which touches the board below should be cleaned.If this does not solve the issue the rubber plug below the button needs to be replaced.Its a common problem.

thanks and please do not forget to rate the solution.keep updated.

I think the only solution is to phisically remove the key from the keyboard - VERY gently, in order not to break or send flying the pieces to which the key is attached. The little rubber button underneath might be squished below those pieces.
