Keyboard keys can be a bit fiddley, but it's usually just as easy as lining them up and pressing down until it clicks, if they aren't staying on or are loose you'll also have to check for damage.

The part of the key that connects to the hinge, and the hinge itself have tiny plastic pieces that can be damaged easily.

If there is damage you can buy replacements online, this particular website also has little tutorials, although generic.

Let me know if this helps.

@thethirdtwin "it linked to a site where you buy new key caps" usually does not get your answer deleted for spam, unless iRobot has some other ideas. It has always been okay to link to sites unless it is the only site you always link to. That however will be a human decision and not iRobot.


I see, thanks for restoring the answer!
