    Default Keyboard Button Losse

    Hey everyone.

    So I just noticed on my keyboard that it appears that my P button is about to peel off. I was just grabbing a hold of my phone, and while sliding my finger , caught the edge of the P button and noticed that it raised. I can lift it up from the far edge and look underneath to what appears to be the connection of it.

    What I am trying to figure out is, is this a problem that can be easily fixed? How are the buttons held on to the phone? Is it glued on? Could I just take a qui tip with some super glue or some compound and apply it underneath the PB button and stick it back together? Any other ideas?

    Thanks for the help!

    And my apologies for the dumb spelling of Loose in the title. Fat thumbs and the PB keyboard don't always mix...

    theyre stuck onto the rubber underside with glue not the plastic square encircling it (youll see what i mean when you pull the p button off) pull the key from one side then from another side as you risk accidently pulling the rubber off with the key

    to restick it just put a dot of super glue on the rubber not the key and then pop the key ontop leave it for 5 seconds and press the key to ensure it clicks down properly then leave it to dry

    Glue the P button back to normal with just a dab of Krazy glue. Seems to be good to go for now. I noticed though that a all the buttons from the U row on seems to be loose on the right side. Not too sure how long its been like that.
