Acer laptop keyboard repair is primarily a matter of difficulty because the keyboard and the device itself are a single unit. Without removing the keyboard from the laptop, most types of repairs cannot be made, and the Apple MacBook Air MD711 laptop and the Apple MacBook Pro 15 laptop are an example of this.
1 Types of keyboard breakdowns
Typically, the following are common among injuries:
- a split and a key out;
- splitting and punching the keyboard itself as a result of hitting it with a heavy object;
- contact failure under the keys due to liquid.
If the damage is serious – the keyboard is pushed inside and even the filling of the laptop is damaged, a complete replacement of the damaged elements will be required. You will also need to replace the split key. But with the departure of the key, replacing the contact element under it, it is quite possible to cope.

- if the “rocker” (two fastened spring elements, due to which pressing and contact with the electronics takes place) is intact, then the flown key is cleaned, and two grooves for the latches and two grooves for the ears of the “rocker” are carefully connected to the corresponding elements of the latter. For convenience, you can use a needle;
- if the key flew out with the “rocker”, then first we carefully separate it from the key and attach it back to the hinge. There are grooves for this. Then we do the work described in the previous paragraph.
