    Hi guys.

    Recently, I just discovered that the "I" key is hard to depress.

    At the "south-east" portion of it, there seem to be some "protrusion" and this cause it hard to press.

    Only when i press at the "north-west", there is respond on the screen for "i".

    Please advise if this is keyboard problem and if I can do a fix myself.

    You may need to re-seat the "scissor clip".

    If you're fairly brave, you can go ahead and pry it off gently and see if there is anything beneath it as well. When putting it back on, make sure there are two distinct clicks as the bottom and top of the scissor clip goes back into place.

    I'm sure there are guides for key removal, so should you feel bewildered, check one of those :)

    Thanks for the advise. Will go and search for videos on how to diy.

    I slightly tilted the "i" key and remove a small t-screw (about 1.5mm diameter).

    Hmmm... Wonder where does this screw comes from...
