48SX Soft Menu Key Problem



#5

Greetings all,

I have a 48SX that I received on trade from a colleague. It works fine except that the soft menu keys must be pushed very hard in order to register. I think there must be a problem such as gunk under the keys, etc. Does anyone have advice regarding maintenance of these keys or the keyboard in general? Of course, I am hesitant to disassemble it without consulting with someone who may have done this before.

Thank you,

J Grim

If you press down on the bezel area between the bottom of the screen and the soft menu keys, does it make the menu keys register more easily?

If so, check out my repair guide from way back.

Thank you for the response. My 48 does behave in the manner you describe. When I push down on the bezel, the keys respond much better. I will probably try the repair myself. Thank you again.
