- A few weeks ago I posted a problem with N1MM locking up during a contest.
My thanks for all the good advice on a fix. However, the problem was not in
N1MM. Of all the dumb things to happen, I discovered that some of my F keys
were sticking and locked up the keyboard when I pressed one of them. A new
keyboard solved the problem. You just never know what might happen. Glad it
was not N1MM.

Life is not the way it's supposed to be. It is the way it is. How you deal
with it is what counts.

- I had this keyboard in a very dusty area for about 2 months. Several keys
quit working, some sticking in the down position and some just being
intermittent. Just for grins I removed all those little screws on the
bottom, pried off the top and removed the membrane.
There was lots of dirt in there! I took the key section to the kitchen sink
and washed the heck out of it using the little spray hose thing. While that
was drying I blew the circuit board off with air and the same with the
After letting things dry I put it back together. Works as good as when it
I have since had people tell me that they have taken them apart and put
everything in a dish washer and had good luck!
I mention this just in case you happen to have a keyboard you really like
that no longer works right and is no longer available. Or if your just
cheap like me!!!
Not sure how many types of construction there may be and if all of them can
be cleaned but all you have to loose is a little time and maybe a keyboard
that doesn't work anyway!
