I am having an annoying problem with my X200.
On the right side of the keyboard especially the keys "iopl09'^^öäü" are bending a little bit down when pressed.
All other keys are perfectely only said keys have a little flex.
How can I fix this?
Are there some cables beneath the surface?
Is it wise to put some paper between keyboard and Mainboard or frame?

If it is assembled correctly, there should be nothing holding it in a way to yield more than a normal amount of flex. It is hard to say more than that without seeing it.

Can you see it?

My X200S certainly doesn't bend like that.
I haven't taken a keyboard out of the X200 yest, but I do know that on my X61 it is possible to remove and replace the keyboard and not get it to seat properly. In this situation the screws all seem tight, but the keyboard will flex.
There could, I suppose be something trapped under the keyboard, so what I would do is undo the 4 screws (one under the battery), lift up the keyboard and have a look. You may have to wiggle it back and forwards a bit to get it out.
Then replace it, making sure that the metal parts of the frame front and back are seated correctly under the top palmrest/cover. This will take a bit of jiggling back and forward to make it secure..
When putting the screws back, I find it useful to hold the machine upside down with one hand holding the keyboard up and then peer down the screwholes with a torch to make sure the hole the screw goes into is central to the case hole.
It can be a bit of a struggle to get it all to clip together correctly and lined up.

I uploaded some photos:
The flex is where the SSD is. I also noticed some of the WAN WLAN cables being slightly above.
Can somebody see the problem?

how long are the keyboard screws?
