    Hi all,

    So the touch sensitivity on my KeyOne has been getting increasingly unstable. It registers swipes when there are none, scrolls when I'm not scrolling, and it's just a nightmare. I've been hoping to get another year out of this device.

    So today I gave it a little clean with some rubbing alcohol, and it seemed to sort things out. The touch sensitivity seemed to go back to normal. Nice one.

    But then the space bar started playing up. Now, it only works intermittently or if I press particularly hard.

    I'm not sure whether I've broken it with the rubbing alcohol, or whether the whole thing was just broken from the start.

    Is there any way of fixing these things? Or should I just accept my KeyOne is dead?

    Cheers in advance

    Here's what's weird...if I reapply alcohol to the keyboard, the space bar starts working perfectly again. But then when it dries it seems to start playing up again.

    What!

    Worst case, you can buy a replacement keyboard on eBay for $30.

    There are several disassembly videos on YouTube that show how to replace the keyboard.

    It's a fairly easy process, I've done it myself.
