Default Enter key sticking?

Please Login to Remove!

I picked up a used 8700 on here, and the enter key seems to be sticking. i.e. sometimes I have to press it 3 or 4 times for it to take. The other keys above it seem to be fine.

Is this a design flaw, or a bad keyboard? Anyone else notice this?

It's not a problem I have seen... It might be a bad unit... I have had my 8700g since day one release and have not seen this... Have you tried using a PC cleaning kit on it? Or perhaps a low pressure blow air can might be worth a try...

The keyboard on the 8700 is built into the circuit board so if it's bad, you're toast. You'd probably have to disassemble the unit to clean the contact portion of the keypad if it's even possible. I've had keyboards out of the 7100 series (they are removeable from the circuit board) and have not been successful in repairing the intermittent keys. Anyone else have any luck? This is the usual problem when I have to replace someone's BB.
