Keyboard cleaning

Postby Neville Bastian » Fri, Aug 10 2018, 2:15AM

The keyboard is 10 years old on my MTR. Just recently a key must be sticking as it keeps on inputting which tends to halt the days activity.
If you use compresed air it seems to overcome the fault and all is good for a few days then the fault returns.
Any suggestion on the best way to clean the contacts?

On a different issue on unscrewing the side panel it doesnt seal as good as it should do.This is the panel directly under the mouse pad that gain access to the computer.
Has anyone done a modication to the side panel so it a quick release yet when reattached dust proof?

Regards

Unplug your existing key board and plug anew one in. Use a desk top key board. I don't like that vertical keyboard any way.

Thanks Guys for the ideas. Obviously you guys must be killing the pig in the US. I like to stretch my dollar :)
Since I made the post no keyboard issues. The keyboard must have feelings after all. I was almost going to call it a Dog but I believe thats not a very nice word.
No name printed on by Thermwood so might call Mr Membrane.
