Ideapad 100S Spacebar Key

I am facing issues with my new ideapad 100s spacebar key.

Pressing the sides of the long spacebar key does not trigger a "space". I have to press hard in the center of the spacebar to get a "space". Is this a design issue or my spacebar techincal issue?

Do you face the same problem?

 

It makes my typing very difficult.

Hi!

Please let me know if you find any solution.

Re: Ideapad 100S Spacebar Key

I have no choice but to bring to lenovo service center. It's a confirmed manufacturing defect with less responsive key. To me, it's also somewhat a design issue. Yes it's a new set. So I will encourage you to bring it back to the dealer for a new set exchange should yours be a brand new set. My dealer has no new replacement set.

Hi I'm facing the same issue on the Ideapad 710s. Did you get yours fixed/replaced to a working one? 

 

 

Thanks

My 100S was in the service for a month then I get a new laptop, because "keyboard part wasn't available". The new one has no spacebar issues.

Re: Ideapad 100S Spacebar Key

I have the same problem. The spacebar only responds when I press it harder in the center. On the edge it has some issues. Maybe after repetitive typing it will improve. This must be a hardware issue most likely, as all other keys work wonderfully. Does anyonw know about a solution to get the touchpad scroll feature, or multigesture feature installed? For the 100S -11IBY ? Thanks.

Yes, hardware problem and I don't think that it'll improve. Bring back to the store till you can.

Re: Ideapad 100S Spacebar Key

I have the same issue with my 100s and thougth the spacebar issue would improve over time as well; It has not. Good to hear there is some success in getting it replaced!

And we're back...
