    Hello All,

    I started to notice the spacebar on my BlackBerry Key 2 would miss a space occasionally. It isn't happening enough to compromise day to day usage, however I am concerned that it may progressively get worse. So far i've tried the following:

    - Sprayed the keyboard with compressed air
    - Installed the most recent keyboard APK
    - restarted the device

    I am reluctant to go the repair period without my device, hence why I haven't gone the route of a warranty repair. I was wondering if anyone had any advice on any reputable shops in Toronto, Ontario or surrounding areas for where I may be able to get an oem keyboard repair with same day service. So far, i've run into many shops who either do not have the parts, do not repair keyboards altogether or do not respond to my inquiry. I am also not confident in making this repair myself

    Alternatively, if anyone has experienced the same issue and has any feedback/solution, that would also be appreciated.

    Another help is here. I’m sure there are other of the same topic. I had the same problem. It seems like dust under the keyboard where people used compressed air to clean it up.
    I wasn’t too brave to try it myself, so sold mine.

    You can get an advance exchange warranty replacement device without having to part ways with your current KEY2. BlackBerry Mobile will ship you a refurbished replacement device and upon receipt you ship yours back. Yes, they do require a credit card to do this advance exchange which is understandable to be sure you will return your current KEY2.

    Pretty straight forward and it's easy peasy… BlackBerry Mobile covers shipping both ways.

    Agree with Bob. If you're still under warranty no point spending your own money fixing it.

    I'm seeing more posts than I'd like about occasionally failing spacebars...
