Having problems with your Balance CN6555 Notebook ?

Shift key has to be pressed firmly to work.

\015 It seems to be only my shift key on the right hand side of my keyboard isn't working. The rest of the keys work perfectly. Is it a hardware problem or is just a worn out key? Know how to fix it?\015

Answers :

If there were more that one key that has failed it would indicate that\015\012you have a keyboard controller chip that has failed or that the\015\012connector from the keyboard to the motherboard is not making proper\015\012contact. You may get that key to work by pressing that key very firmly.
\015\012
\015\012You may be able to fix the faulty key by removing that key and spraying\015\012the faulty key contact with electronic spray cleaner whilst pressing\015\012the key pad several times. It may not work because it may be sealed and\015\012the cleaning fluid may not be able to penetrate the key contacts.
\015\012
\015\012Then the only thing to do is to buy and fit a new keyboard from the manufacrurer.,
