We need to know exactly which Book you have as the keys are different on different models. Please remove the battery and get this info from inside the compartment. Thanks

Basically they all snap off

Prying from the left or top works best. There are small pins (hinges) that keep the tops in, and most hook over a keyboard tang at the bottoms.

Shift, space bar and some other keys have springs and/or wire legs to keep them aligned.

'''

Breaking off the pins will destroy the key.''' Single replacement keys can be had at e-bay.

Good Luck,

N.
