The touchpad keys have tabs on them, chek to see if a tab is broken off. If so, you will need to replace the entire plastic bezel containing the touchpad, the keys are built into the plastic bezel, and aren't made to be replaceable.

How do i get the panel off to get to the touch pad maytag mmv4203db00

Remove the cover that makes up the microwave shell. There should be screws in the back that hold it on. Once free of the base just pull the cover off to the side. The Control Panel should now be exposed. I pulled up the schematic at "Sears Parts Direct" and don't see any screws holding the pad in place so it appears to be a snap fit connector at the top of the pad that it mates to. You should be able to press the plastic snap fit to dislodge it. Otherwise you'll need a small flat blade screwdriver at the top to unlock the latch mechanism. Lightly press down and it should just pop off.

Two places to search for the schematics is or

Hope this helps.

The left click button is partially pushed down and is difficult to make it click

This is an easy fix:

Step 1: Find a flat tip screw driver, the smaller the better.

Step 2: Gently pry around the edges of the left click button on the touch pad. It should pop off easily, don't force it!

Step 3: When you get it off you should see a small nipple that the plastic button pushes down. Make sure the nipple is secure and free of debris.

Step 4: Gently snap the touch pad button back on.

That's it!

Loose left button mouse on an hp dv4-1120us

If only the one button is loose then touch pad assembly probably will require replacement. This isn't a big job but usually involves opening the case. Two screws and one connector and button it back up. If the laptop is new you should have this covered by warranty. Cost of the part should be about $30-$70 as well as labor.

If you are lucky you might just have a loose fitting button that you can snap back in to place. With the laptop off try to gently push/wiggle the button down. It might pop back into its mounts. If this works (slight chance) then it might work normally for a while and pop out again. It won't have fixed the wear that let it come loose.

My toshiba laptop cursor doesnot move when i touch the tray pad


I had the same problem after my fat cat sat on my keyboard. This is how I fixed it. At the top of the keyboard there is a F9 key. If you look closely at this key, it also has two pictures of the mouse pad. This key is a toggle that turns the mouse pad on and off. Down near the lower left corner of the keyboard is a key marked FN. Hold down the FN key and press the F9 key. That will turn the mouse pad back on.

Yamaha psr-270 keyboard almost all keys are not functioning

Most if not all Yamaha PSR series have a silcon pad sandwiched between each octave and a continuous printed circuit card that runs the length of the keyboard. What I have experienced is the raised **** (2 per note) weaken and split near the larger portion of the 12 note silicon section. Depending on which one can have a note that plays full volume or no volume at all. Basically the processor timer measures the difference in contact time between the first *** touching the printed circuit point and the second *** touching it's contact calculates the time difference and assigns it a "speed of impact" to derive a volume level for that specific note.
New silicon pads are somewhat difficult to find (they cannot be repaired) and the task to replace them is tedious but not impossible. Exercise great care in popping the printed circuit board out as it is thin and fragile. Pull the old silicon pad out and slip the new ones in place..make absolutely sure everything is in its place (including the keys) and gradually snap the printed circuit board back in place... keep in mind that the board is a one piece full length component. Patience is req'd
Each pad costs about 10-12$$ ...a 5-octave kybd has 5 it'll cost about 50-60 bucks to replace them

Touch pad failed.

Look along the top of the keyboard for an "f key" that shows a "touch pad" icon, IF you see it, press the "function key" (along the bottom of the keyboard) PLUS at the same time the "f key" (that you found along the top) and that should "toggle" the touch pad back on....
Also, IF you plug in a USB mouse that will allow you to move the cursor around--but the USB mouse doesn't fix your touch pad problem.
Hope this helps.
