Actually, I have it figured out. I will not need the service. I will use it again sometime.

Hi, I'm Russell H, and Expert here at I feel that your question deserves some sort of an answer, even if you have solved the problem yourself.

Often when a keyboard's keys do not sound, cleaning them out with compressed air blown between the keys is all that it needs for repair. (If not, other resources are available for key repair, of course.)

Thank you for trying I hope your experience was such that you will return at another time to this site, to ask another question or questions should you have need.

(No response required, thanks.)
