Hi smoking tiger, The answer is probably, depending on what it is. If its sticky (dried soda, food) then its going to be hard for the typical user. If its just something loose then you can try the following: -Turn the laptop upside down and shake. -Buy a can of compressed air from any office or computer supply shop. Make sure you buy the kink with a small thin plastic pipe you insert into the nozzle. If you?re careful you can insert that underneath the keys and try blowing the material out. Be careful to hold the can upright otherwise you?ll shoot out liquid which could damage the key switches or parts. If that doesn?t work the typical user should take it to a local authorized repair shop. They have the skills to safely remove the keyboard, clean and if necessary replace. If you feel you have the tools and mechanical aptitude let us know and I?ll get you some instructions on keyboard removal. Also please don?t forget to rate the posting.

My power went out after the power came back on my air conditioner reads e1

E1 might be a stuck key on the keypad... they are sometimes flakey .. maybe water getting into the keypad ... at any rate the remote control usually still works .. eventually sometimes the key pad starts to work again (maybe when it dries out)

So, based on solutions from those other sites, I pulled off the front panel, turned it over and removed the 4 screws from the back of the control pad (not the six screws on the outer perimeter). I looked for a stuck button but did not find one. I just pushed all the buttons a few times in case one was stuck (as suggested on other sites) and that did it!

Hope helps.

You have to press the buttons extremely hard

This is due to poor contacts inside the remote, if the remote is old then the contact pads may be worn, if it is fairly new then you may of wasted something on the remote and the contacts needs cleaning.. If you open the remote and remove the main board and the keypad clean the tracings on the remote with some achohol also the keypad also..

You can disassemble and clean the remote, this might help.

Clean the rubber keypad with ethyl alcohol and cottonwool, also clean the contact tabs on the rubber keypad and on the circuit board (don't rub the contacts too hard when you clean them, you don't want to damage the conductive coating).

Also clean well the housing, especially the holes on the housing where the rubber buttons protrude.

The holes (and the rubber buttons) get dirty with use and this often causes the buttons to get stuck.

I had to "repair" several remotes with stuck buttons, and simple cleaning did the trick.

I hope you can get it fixed...

Mobile caught in rain storm!

It seems that there are some water traces inside. Use your hair dryer without heat on it for a few minutes and try again. repeat the process a few times. Keep spending ten pounds as the last resort. And in future remember the hair dryer whenever you bathe your mobile. Also remove the battery soonest possible.

Cursor bounces around, doesn't release when highlighting

Does your laptop have a touch pointer within the keypad? This can cause the problem you're experiencing. Did you try turning the track stick off in the touchpad settings?

You need to be brave, but it is pretty simlple. Basically you are going to clean the rubber keypad and circuit board contacts. These contacts develop a film over time that needs to be removed. That is the main reason telephone and remote control keypads fail over time.

1. Remove the battery.
2. Remove 5 screws holding the bady together and separate the backplate from the main body.
3. Now carefully lift the circuit board out of the main body. Do not disconnect anything, but be careful with the rubber seal that fits between the back and front plates.
4. With the circuit board laying flat on your work surface, remove the rubber keypad. It is held in place over the joystick. Carefully lift it off the joystick and set it aside.
5. Use a clean pencil eraser and lightly rub the contacts on the circuit board. Do the same thing on the keypad by pushing the little knobs out where you can rub them. Blow away the dust.
6. Use a Q-tip with some alcohol to clean the contacts on the curcuit board and on the keypad.
7. When the alcohol is dry, put everything back together in the opposite order.

This should be good enough, but if it does not solve the issue, then buy a rubber keypad repair kit (an example is at http://www.mgchemicals.com/downloads/appguide/appguide0206.pdf) and try again.

Good luck.

have you tried a hard reset and left unit powered off for few hours?

The directional buttons i.e. the buttons in the circle around the select button do not work and after a few bashes theyt have to be pressed RLY hard then they stop working again, i have to use the volume...

Your "d-pad" is most likely ripped underneath, and needs to be replaced - if you are lucky you just need the keypad portion - cost is about $20, if you are unlucky then you need a new keypad flex - about $45 - but i doubt that as the other buttons work fine.

Keyboard on my Medion MD 40812 PC Notebook will not work

Hi Steve, its kinda hard to advise you considering your limited in what u can do, if you are not able to get into the bios or into safe mode using the keys on the keypad, only thing i would suggest that would be worth checking is the cable for the keypad, to check that just remove the keypad and underneath it there is a cable try taking it out and putting it back in, If the machine lets you into safe mode or bios let me know should be easy enough to fix. And by any chance did your daughter spill anything on the keypad?.. and if you aint sure how to remove keypad just ask will give you more details.. let me know how you get on.. John
