"Colon/semicolon", "Fn" and "print screen" keys stopped working

2019-05-08, 10:15 AM



I got into a little bit of a pickle with my built-in keyboard in Thinkpad Yoga 460 - the "Colon/semicolon", "Fn" and "print screen" keys stopped working.


- They don't work on windows 10 or Ubuntu 18.04

- Driver uninstallation did not help

- After disassembly, no visual damage occurs


Currently, I have no idea what could be the issue as the rest of the keyboard works flawlessly and these keys are not placed on a common line of the matrix keyboard. 


Any shared ideas, experiences or solutions will be much appreciated :)
