Question about Microsoft Natural Ergonomic 4000

2 Answers

How do you disassemble a Microsoft Natural Ergo. Keyboard 4000?

I own one of these keyboards, and am very fond of it, but when I tried to disassemble it in order to clean the various components (remove crumbs, dust, etc.), I encountered a great deal of resistance around the zoom slider in the middle of the keyboard. (This is, obviously, after removing all visible screws, both in the back and after removing the wrist-rests.) I stopped and reattached all the screws after doing so, as I didn't want to risk breaking an un-repairable plastic component.

Has anyone managed to get their keyboard fully apart, and if so, how?

Thanks.

As mentioned, there are more screws under the spacebar. The only way to safely get the spacebar off is to wedge a flat blade into the front centre of the spacebar and lever it off. If you try to pull or lever it from anywhere else you'll just snap something off it.

You need to pop the spacebar off and then you will see four retaining screws under it. Once you remove that you should able to pop off the keyboard entirely.

Spacebar on my Microsoft Natural Ergonomic Keyboard 4000 is sticking in the down position.


Take out the space bar button and change the position of the "sway bar" shown in http://www.paulstravelpictures.com/MS-Natural-Ergo-Keyboard-Sticky-Spacebar-Fix/index.html

There are 3 positions you can keep the sway bar - The middle positions worked for me and probably will work for you too.

Hi there !

The best way to clean or repair your keyboard is by removing all the screws at the back of the keyboard. And you can clean that chip board and all the buttons as well.

My Keyboard won't type on Word program.


It seems like your trying to type into a locked document, which means that your keyboard is working, its not the issue, the issue is the spesific file which is locked, try another document / file or turn off the lock from office settings if you can find it.

REPLACEMENT PART


I don't think they sell keys, take one from another keyboard or replace the keyboard.
