Hello.

Check to be certain the Keyboard Address is set to "1". Flip the keyboard, remove the batteries and notice the switches. For Address "1', all the 4 switches should be "Down". Also, check the Receiver - switches are in the back. The Address should be set the same.

If still a problem, sounds like some moisture in the keyboard may have affected the spacebar key. When a spacebar key stops functioning as it should, very little can be done.

Hope this helps.

This sounds like a power issue, have you tried putting NEW batteries in to see if the boost of power helps? I am sure that new batteries and resyncing will help your issue, remember to reboot inbetween of course.

    Sorry but in that case it seems like the keyboard has a fault. You can determine this for sure by trying on another pc or laptop.

How do I unsplit the spacebar on a microsoft keyboard


I don't know why you would want to "un-split it" but, if I were to try such a thing without disassembling the keyboard, I would epoxy something thin and rigid - perhaps a piece of the long spacebar from an old keyboard - across the tops of the two keys. If I wanted to take the keyboard apart, I'd just epoxy a small piece of plastic between the two keys and, if space allowed, reinforce with a small screw being careful to maintain the original distance between the keys so they would still line up with their sensors. In both cases I would use epoxy rather than glue because the spacebar is a very heavily-used key and epoxy is MUCH stronger than glue. I hope this is helpful. Good luck!

Wired and onscreen keyboard space bar doesnt work


Keyboards are cheap. If you need to use this one then you will need to carefully pop the spacebar key out, turn the keyboard upside down and give it a good shake. You will see a ton of junk fall out ;)

I broke my spacebar off my laptop gateway computer! How do i fix this?


Of all the keys on the keyboard, replacing the SPACEBAR is probably the most difficult. The SPACEBAR is kept even by a metal wire that is inserted into slots on each leg of the plastic bar key. However, you have to get the wire into the slots without depressing the wire. If you push the wire down, you compress the wire and installation becomes impossible. As a general rule, do not remove the SPACEBAR unless absolutely necessary. If you remove the SPACEBAR, remove several surrounding key caps also. This will let you get some tools under the SPACEBAR wire later on. Once the SPACEBAR is reinserted, you can easily replace any of the other key caps.

I recently have been having problems w/certain keys on my Apple Keyboard with Numeric Keypad. I used some wipes to clean it the other day...and almost immediately the spacebar & a lot of of other keys...


some of the fluid from the wipes must have short circuited the keyboard! you may have to invest in a new keyboard and keep it away from water based wipes this time!

Can't/use/my/spacebar/ don/'t/have/recovery/cds/for/satellite/135/using/vista


Hi,
I'm afraid that your recovery CD's won't help you get the space bar working.
There could well be dust, biscuit crumbs, hairs etc that's preventing the spacebar from working, turn the laptop off but don't close the lid, stand the laptop on it's side and get yourself a clean, dry paintbrush.
Start to brush the keys and gently tap the keyboard with the other end of the brush to knock out any foreign objects that could be trapped under the spacebar.
Once your happy it's clean turn the laptop on and see if the spacebar works.
If you still have the same symptoms then the keyboard will have to be replaced.
You can use the on-screen keyboard to substitute for the spacebar for the time being.



Good luck.

The spacebar doesn't work consistantly unless ''pounded''


The spacebar is the most often used switch on your keyboard, so, yes, it's from overuse, but also from
the fact that it is the longest key on your keyboard and the closest to the edge, all of this combining to
make it the dirtiest key on the board.

So, get a keyboard cleaning kit, either professional or DIY which would consist of the following, cotton
swabs, compressed air, and maybe a toothbrush and realize that all the stuff that accumulates under
your keyboard's space key makes it harder to depress to the point where contact is made.
