Hello all

I just purchased a Wavy 23 and the F5 key seems to be stuck. What happens is that the command "Run" is called multiple times, just like it would happen if you pressed F5 + Enter. However, this doesn't seem like a physical issue with the key. I poped out F5 and the behavior remains. I cleaned the keyboard and the contact under the key but nothing changes.

Any idea of what is going on?

Did you remove the 'hood' of the key or the total key, making the film visible? In the first case you didn't change anything to the situation...

Hey Meits
I removed the whole key ('hood', a larger spring and a smaller one that goes inside and touches the film I believe). I could see the film afterwards. I even tried to carefuly clean that little part of the film with a cuetip but no change after that.

One more piece of data here: I disconnected the keyboard from the mb and the problem stopped. So this is a problem with the keyboard for sure.

Any idea of what I should be looking for?

Disassemble the whole keyboard and deep cleaning the membrane.
