There is something under the space bar you can pry it up carefully and remove the debris it should snap right back in.

SOURCE: Space bar on Latitude D-600 Dell is sticking

There may be something under the spacebar key preventing its contact with the base. If you gently pull up the key it will come off and you can check.

It's a bit tricky to put it back on, gently push it back on rocking it from top to bottom.

Failing this, you can buy a new keyboard quite cheaply on the web.

The space bar on any PC is a single button you may need to make sure your keyboard is clear of any debris If that doesn't fix issue you will probably need to replace keyboard which is very easy to do. techsupport@grindstaffscomputerservices.com

SOURCE: Slow Keypad with sticking space bar

My MOM Used AOL mail, for her it was the AOL news pictures loading every few seconds in the backround. If you press the pause button in between the left and right arrow boxes in the news box (under the pictures) you will turn off that function, which should speed up your typing, as every time a news item switches it causes a delay which may miss a keystroke, etc.

Space bar on sylectric 2 ibm typewriter is not moving the type


There are a few things that can cause your spacebar to not move the carrier. Do you hear any sound when you press on the bar? There are adjustment that may need to be made to the machine or perhaps there is something sticking in the mechanism. Unfortunately you mey not be able to fix this yourself as these machines need a technician to properly repair and service the machine.

Spacebar on keyboard makes my computer go to sleep mode


Sounds like your keyboard is sending the wrong signal (the one telling your PC to enter sleep mode) to your motherboard when you press space key, which (if true) would indicate it's faulty. It could also be you've contracted a virus and is playing a particularly nasty practical joke on you (let's hope that's all it does). Try connecting another keyboard to your PC and see if that helps. If it doesn't, then you'll need to clean your computer of any viruses. Try also disconnecting your mouse and see if that changes anything. If your keyboard comes with a shortcut utility software for it, run it and check there's no shortcut set on your keyboard's space bar. You've additionally specified you're not using wireless keyboard, but could you also please write what OS you're on?

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.

When keyboard comes up on IPad, the space bar is missing. I know that it was there at first. How do I get it back?


What app are you in? The iPad's software keyboard is not always the same - it changes depending on what context you're in. For example, it will remove the space bar and display web symbols when typing a URL (web address).

Acer spacebar types bv why? how do i stop it?


Hello,

If it not under warranty I would suggest to open the laptop and reseat the Keyboard cable. Also it might just be that the keyboard is simply faulty - as the space bar is close to bv so maybe it was damaged some time ago. The last assumption I would have that liquid has been spilled onto the keyboard - It stuck bv and space together and everytime you type space, the key that are hooked with the dried liquid come down with it.

Space bar is sticky du to liquid accident ( soft


Get a Electrical/Electronic solvent spray from RS, give it a good spray (with Power Off!) and operate it lots of times. The spray will evaporate naturally and may remove the gunk! Ian.

Keyboard spacebar sticking


Just solved it, after a bit of tinkering...

the prongs of the floating plastic frame need to sit inside the clips of the spacebar key, you can't just clip it back on with the prongs either up or down. It's fiddly, you need a paperclip or thin screwdriver to do it, but it's stopped the sticking problem.

My keyboard is inserting spaces where they don't belong.  it is usually around R's, N's and spaces (I  press the   spacebar once it it inserts 2 or three spaces, the  faster I type the   worse it gets.)...


You should open the key board.and clean space key and change rubber cap.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
