Keys getting stuck
« Reply #15 on: January 18, 2020, 02:52:50 pm »
I am having issues with any bluetooth keyboards (really good ones) on android generally. On the android Yoga book thera are options in settings for adjustment of hardware keyboards that work. I'm curious how the Cosmo keyboard will work on Linux. I guess it is not only a hardware problem.

Have my Cosmo for three weeks now. For a device that should be a winner because of the physical keyboard, I'm not impressed: left shift key and X don't register unless pressed very firmly. Spacebar is unreliable. About 50% of the time it works, and about half of that time it puts out 2 spaces
Follow-up: got an email from PC-support today that the keys may need to be reseated (take them off, clean underneath, put back on). Tried it, but it doesn't help at all (as I expected after reading the other posts in this thread). Will follow-up again with PC and keep you informed.

Had the same issue with the D key. Got the same reply from PC so reseat the key. It finally got better, but removing the key "popped" the inner ring below it (see above pics without key) out  ... after putting is in again and reseating the key it works now. Unfortunately, the key is now no longer level (like in one of the above pics) and lost most of its travel ... <sigh> ...

Several people (me including) reported that keyboard does take some time to break in with usage. I did have few keys that were hard to register, now after month and a half I can not say I have any problem with that. Of course, your mileage may be different

I've had the same experience as vldmr, the recognition of keystrokes has become more reliable over time.  I've had it over a month (light usage of keyboard), the "2" key is much better than when I first received my cosmo.  It's by no means perfect but its not causing frustration anymore (also I'm reluctant to re-seat the key for fear of breakage).

Based on my experience, I think its worth waiting to see if usage "breaks it in" before busting out the ole spudger.  Each to their own though, I'm sure a seasoned tinkerer could correct an errant alphanumerical without consequence.

Sorry for bringing up this old topic, but i just got my cosmo a few days back. I really like the keyboard, but unfortunately i too have some issues with it. My S key is not working properly. I have to tap it dead center for it to register. This key is the one i have the most trouble with, and honestly, I'm reluctant to sending it in to Planet because i fear that, if they replace it, i might get a unit with more problems.

My question is if any of you having trouble have managed to either fix it your self somehow, or has the problems dissapeared with use? And if they have, how bad were they in the beginning?
