How hard is it to put scissor switches back together?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
I think my CR-48 has scissor switches, but they certainly don't feel like them (I kind of almost pulled one off out of curiosity).

So in case it is a scissor switch, how hard would it be to put it back? lol.

I've fixed a few. They can be a bit tricky, but it's not impossible.

Trick is to hold the stabilizers down with a screwdriver or pliers while pulling the key. Then it's a simple pop and they are on. Otherwise you are in for a world of hurt.

Yeah. Just make sure you have the little tabs (shown in this picture on the left side of the black part) in their slots and then you can just press the key straight down the the other part will pop in.

Yeah. That was easy. It is infact a scissor switch. The last scissor switch keyboard I used felt so much better, though.

The Google TV keyboard is one of the best scissor switches I've ever tried. If it had been BlueTooth I would have picked one up.

More here.
