Describe how to attach a key back on to the keyboard of an hp pavilion dv5


Answers :

Many keys are held on with a simple mechanism consisting of a two plastic legs with a connecting bar shaped thus: |__| They snap together with the legs going in opposite directions, and are pinned with a little protuberance on the leg that fits in a little socket in the other leg. The bar slides in a groove inside the top pf the hollow key. When the key is up in the rest position, the legs are oriented at roughly 45 degrees to one another (that's 1/8 of a circle.) When the key is depressed, the mechanicm flattens out nearly into a plane. A spring holds the key up and is depressed when the key is held down, which provides the return force to raise the key when released. If the legs are not broken or worn out to the point that they will not stay engaged when reassembled, and if the spring still functions, some dexterity will allow you to reassemble the whole kit and kaboodle and snap it carefully back in place. I've done this on a Fujitsu laptop sucessfully, but it is a little delicate. Think of it as operating on a hummingbird and be very gentle and relaxed about it! You may find some helpful pictures of your key mechanism parts as I did by searching the internet.
Hi:
\015\012Most of the time, when laptop keys are popped off of a keyboard, they can't easily be re attached. The good news is that an entire new keyboard is not too expensive, approx $15-20 on ebay. I bought one recently for my daughter's HP, and found instructions to swap it out online, and the whole process was about a 15 minute job. Give it a try!
