Yoga 3 Pro 1370 single key malfunction

Hi folks,

 

I've had my Yoga for several years and it's probably the best laptop I've owned out of many. I live in a dusty environment and several previous laptops expired prematurely due to the accumulation of dust inside the case. I of course don't have that problem anymore with the Yoga. But even though I clean the keyboard regularly I expected a problem some day. That day occured two weeks ago when the Left Shift key started acting up. The action is fine but unless I press the left shift key sharply it will not be recognized.

 

Am I correct that the keyboard is a sealed unit and not servicable? No liquids were spilled so it has to be the debris. I am hesitant to use a powerful vacuum cleaner due to a static discharge and using compressed air could just drive the contamination deeper....

 

Any other ideas?

 

TIA,

JRH

The keyboard can be replaced, but not serviced.  I believe Lenovo only sells the entire top as a unit, but you can find just the keyboard itself on eBay.  It needs a lot of disassembly to get to it and the keyboard is held in by lots of screws, but I have done it and it is certainly possible.  Here is an example:

I am not familiar with this particular seller and this is not a specific recommendation.

TY. I now have a few other keys malfunctioning so this is becoming more of a priority.
