    Everything on my ibook seems fine except the spacebar. It works but only from the center part, the edge of the space bar from left and right doesn't work. There is no warranty on it, is there any way to fix it myself? i think it might just be a simple spring problem? not sure...

    More info required. Did you just buy it? Is it 2nd hand (probably as there is no warranty)?

    My brother's new iBook had a slightly sticky key (I forget which) but it sorted itself out on its own after some moderate use. Yours might do the same. Otherwise, you may want to try unscrewing the keyboard (this is easily done and required to add extra RAM) and then putting it back - this may sort it out.

    Spacebar Thread


    A couple of weeks ago? there was a thread where someone else was having the same problem. I believe a new keyboard was installed?

    It is 2nd hand but is brand new style ( 2 months) 1.2ghz ibook . Is there a link where it'll teach me how to open the keyboard safetly. And what info do you need ? It would be wasteful to me, if i had to replace the keyboard because only one key is not working perfectly ( but works somewhat)

    Just search google for "Putting RAM in iBook G4 Tutorial".
