Popped off key on macbook

I accidentally popped the Command key and the scissor hinge behind the key off of my 13'' macbook. The key and the scissor hinge aren't broken I just can't figure out how to put them back on. The nearest Apple store is about 60 miles away from me and I need a Genius Bar appointment to get my key fixed. I was wondering if I could go into a best buy or circuit city to get it fixed by geek squad or firedog.

Sometimes the mechanism actually breaks and the key doesn't snap back in. Then the palmest needs to be replaced. The part is in on ebay and not that expensive, there is a guide that shows you how to replace the macbook palrest.

Well, you can pop the key back in , but you have to line up the hinge part to the 2 joints on the membrane. If you're not sure, make the appointment and take thr drive, it's worth not voiding your warranty incase something else costly might happen down the rod. I know its a pain, but if that is the only issue, than you're.

How to Repair or Replace a Key for a Keyboard.

Keys sometimes pop out or are accidentally bumped and fall off the keyboard. Here's a little trick to help you put the key back on: <br /> 1. Gather all the pieces or parts of the key - normally there are four parts: the key itself, a rubber nipple, and two base hinges. <br /> 2. Gently lift the key next to the one that popped out - just remove the key and do not remove the other parts. This is going to be the "reference" key. <br /> 3. Observe the assembly of the parts and make note of how they are connected at the base. <br /> 4. Replace the base hinges first - compare it to the other key base and make sure the rubber is in the center. The two hinge parts must be connected correctly like the "reference" key. Use a magnifying glass to see the proper assembly - do not alter the connection. <br /> 5. Replace the key - align it over where it's suppose to be and sharply snap it into place. You should hear a noticeable clicking sound if all the parts are assembled properly. <br /> 6. Test the key. <br /> 7. Replace the "reference" key back on. <br /> 8. Done!

You have to make sure you put the hinge back together correctly if it popped off. Lay the hinge in place, then put the key on top if it, and give it a good solid press.

I have a mac book and two of the keys have popped off. Can they be put back on and How do I do that?

Placing back the keys is not possible manually except that you stick it, and thats the worst thing you would do. if you have an apple service center nearby, get it serviced by them as they need to open the lower case of the macbook to do that.
Btw is it Macbook or Macbook Pro? Because macbook pro has a unibody which can not easily get the keys back into position if they popped off.
