Introduction

If a key is missing or has become detached from the keyboard of your AlphaSmart Pro, you can use this guide to help you reattach the key.

Notice: The entire keyboard does not need to be removed in order to replace one or more individual keys.

Parts

No parts required.

Insert the plastic opening tool or spudger into the side of the key you wish to remove, and press downward on the far end of the tool to pry the key up. You may also pry the key up by simply using your finger and/or fingernail, however, it is easier to use an opening tool.

If the key you are removing is the spacebar (like you see pictured here), you should find a single spring placed on one of two circular spots located one the right and left side underneath the key.

  • Remove the spring and place it to the side so it doesn't get lost.

  • It does not matter which of the two circular spots the spring is on.

  • There is only one spring per spacebar. If the spring is missing, don't worry — the spacebar will work fine without it — but it will work better when the spring is attached.

If you wish to remove another key besides the spacebar, the same methods of removal apply.

  • You should hear a "popping" or "snapping" sound when the key has been removed.

  • Unlike the spacebar key, all the other keys do not have a spring.

To replace the key(s), simply align the center cylindrical post(s) with the center holes. Use your index finger to press down on the middle of the key. You should hear it "click" into place.
