Sometimes you may find certain keys of your laptop keyboard not working properly. You type those keys but there is no output on the screen or you need to press these keys firmly to get a result. You face this problem if you accidentally spill any liquid substance on your keyboard, or due to dust accumulating on the inside of the keys, pressing certain keys really hard while playing games or even due to absence of lubrication. Therefore you are suppose to maintain your laptop keyboard by cleaning and lubricating it regularly.
INSTRUCTIONS

  1. To start with, take out each key out from the laptop keyboard. Use a small screwdriver to carefully pry each key by making it loose. As they become loose, keys will simply pop off. Also, take out the rubber piece present under every key. Keep the keys and rubber pieces in different containers.
  2. Once you have removed all keys from the keyboard, you will have to clean the keyboard from the inside. Use cotton swabs or ear bubs and slightly dip them in water. Avoid getting them too moist, as excess water can damage the keyboard. Meticulously clean the whole keyboard using moist cotton swabs, laying extra emphasis on key spaces.
  3. Now, start cleaning keys you had earlier removed and kept in the container. Use foam rubber and lighter fluid to clean each key alone. This will help in removing any sticky substance present on keys. Apply any household cleaner on these keys and let them stay for about 15 minutes. After this, wash all the keys properly using hot water and let the keys dry completely.
  4. The small rubber pieces which you took out earlier and kept in the container have to be thoroughly rinsed in warm water, after you have sprayed a household cleaner on them. Soak these rubber pieces up in paper napkins so that they dry quickly.
  5. To lubricate the keys, place all keys (facing top-down) on a flat surface. Apply mild lubricant from all sides, on all keys and leave them to dry. Avoid applying too much lubricant instead go for a light coat.
  6. Similar to the manner in which you lubricated the keys, apply mild lubricant on the keyboard surface and let it dry.
  7. Once you have cleaned and lubricated all the parts, carefully reassemble the laptop keyboard. Begin with placing all rubber components on the keyboard. Next, fix all keys in their respective positions cautiously securing the wire in these keys. Use your finger and press down all keys, one at a time, firmly so that they fit properly in the slots. That is it.
  8. goodluck

    Some letter key is not working on keyboard???


    if any of the key on the keyboard is not working, you can use an alternate for time being. This is regarding ASCII. There are ASCII codes for every character on the keyboard. A - 65,B - 66........... So on a - 97, b - 98...........So on
    Use these codes by pressing and holding Alt key on the keyboard. In order to type b character. Press and hold Alt key and type 66 from the numpad at the right side of the keyboard.

    How to get the sterling pound symbol in K120 logitech keyboard


    Entering the following keystroke combination will result in the Pound Sterling sign being displayed:
    While holding down the ALT key, enter 0163 (ALT+0163).

    This is known ASCII Code. (Pronounced Ask-key.)
    A complete list of all 256 character codes is available at http://www.ascii-code.com/ .
    All manner of Latin-based characters are available. Check it out.
    To use any ASCII Code, choose the "HTML Number" and substitute "ALT+0" for "&#".
    In this case, the HTML Number is &#163, therefore when entering text, type ALT+0163 (NOTE: "ALT+" means "While holding down the ALT key, press and release each of the four digits in sequence, then release the ALT key.)

    Hope this helps.

    Hi wa33ban2hart

    Question: "Some letters on my keyboard result in the wrong character. This problem showed up weeks after purchase. Initially it was working fine".

    You've done unbelievably well to type an error-free, letter-perfect question, despite the character confusion.

    This is a very strange problem to have on a desktop keyboard (Dynex Keyboard and Mouse), since the way to achieve the above sentence as you have written it, is to use the Fn and NumLk keys, on a laptop keyboard, to enable buttons with multiple functions to print their alternative characters designated to them.

    Desktop keyboards do not usually have Fn keys and the NumLk key on a desktop keyboard locks and unlocks the Number Pad on the right of the keyboard, which usually has no alternative letter values on its keys.

    Solution: Press and hold the Fn (Function) key on your keyboard > press the NumLk (Number Lock) key (usually F10, F11 or F12) > release both keys > test keys J, K, L, U, I, O etc. again.

    That should resolve your problem.

    I hope this helps.

    Cursor won't stay where I move it with the mouse


    Hi, your first problem (and possibly second problem) sounds like it's the "Insert" function on your keyboard. I've seen this a lot. Find the Insert key on your keyboard. It's normally off to the right side with the Home, End, Page Up, and Page Down keys. When you have the problem, press the Insert key and then keep typing. It should toggle between the cursor moving with typing, and not. If this was helpful, please rate my response. Thanks!

    Datalogic Heron D130 (Barcode Reader) Header setup


    Whether or not you can set this feature depends on which interface type you are using if you are using wedge interface then the procedure is described below: The extended Header/Terminator keys for Wedge Interface users can be customized by defining them through a simple keyboard setting procedure. For example, the Numeric Keypad keys can be set for use as Headers or Terminators by substituting the default extended keys using this procedure. The type of computer or terminal must be selected before activating the keyboard setting command. Press and release a key to set it. Some characters may require more than one key pressed simultaneously during normal use (refer to the manual of your PC or terminal for keyboard use). The exact sequence must be indicated to the reader in this case pressing and releasing the different keys. Example: If one has to press the "Shift" and "4" keys simultaneously on the keyboard to transmit the character "$" to the video, to set the "$", press and release "Shift" then press and release "4". Each pressed and released key must generate an acoustic signal on the reader, otherwise repress the key. Never press more than one key at the same time, even if this corresponds to the normal use of your keyboard. Press "Backspace" to correct a wrong key entry. In this case the reader emits 2 beeps. Note: "CAPS LOCK" and "NUM LOCK" must be off before starting the keyboard setting procedure. "SHIFT" must be repressed for each character and cannot be substituted by "CAPS LOCK". Check page 31-33 of the "heron reference manual", downloadable near the bottom of this link page; http://www.datalogic.com/_vti_g2_dwnlDett.aspx?idCF=1&idC=44&rpstry=13_ Hope this helps :)
