No Stabdy Key Operation

Do you hear a "beep" when you depress the key? Do the other buttons beep when selected?
I had a similar problem with mine last year. It was the metal disc that activates the keys under the rubber buttons. You will need to take it apart and check that each of the triangular metal discs are positioned correctly over each contact grid for each button. This may be the reason for the button not reading the depression.

Thanks Peter. I just had it repaired at CMC Electronics for around $ 120 and it works like a charm. The problem is exactly as you described. $5 for parts and the rest was labour. Worth every penny as a full replacement sould have cost me nearly $1.5K!
