I wouldn't recommend opening up the keyboard it may just be something lose, or the pad under the key on that side is just warn out, try cleaning it.. and if nothing else works then you might as well try popping it own and trying to see what the problem is and then popping it back in, just be careful not to break any of the peices and use something like a knife and wedge it and pop it or a screwdriver.. Hope this helps :)

SPACE BAR NOT AS TOUCH SENSITIVES BEFORE


That is usually caused from something getting stuck under it. Get a can of compressed air and use it with the tube that attaches to the can to blow out the debris under the space bar.

When I hit the spacebar it jumps 2 spaces


Look closely at the space bar. try to lift it on the right side and on the left. The bar may have popped out of place. Specifically a metal rod that holds the space bar in place. Or the space bar is not resetting fast enough, ( soda, honey, something sticky) causing the bar to reset slowly.

Space bar sticks


Does it work normally when using other software? If no then you may have something (crumbs etc) stuck under it. If not take back to the shop having backed up it first.

My lexmark typewriter space bar will not work and the phrase light is stuck on


The phrase light is also the single space. If only the space bar doesn't workyou may have a bad keyboard or something under the space bar that is in the way.

I have a mac Laptop and the space button on the bottom of the keyboard is stuck down .. can this be fixed?


It is tricky to repair the space bar. It has a plunger in the middle and is held in place by tension clips. The tension clips are what make the spacebar pop back up. Usually one clip comes loose and the other side still bounces. If the spacebar is stuck down with no bounce, I would check to see if there is something wedged under the spacebar. Get a can of compress air and blow under it, hopefully this will release whatever is under there. Only take the spacebar off carefully without jerking it upwards. If it breaks the clip holder at each end, you will need a new KB.

Good Luck.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

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.

Left side of space bar on Dell XPS M1330 difficult to use


I had the exact same problem and contacted Dell support. They sent a tech to swap out just the keyboard. I have a feeling these keyboards are not of the highest quality as I do have some issues with the Ctrl key now. But it's much less annoying than the broken spacebar.
