I have a das keyboard where the M key doesn't respond very well anymore, it is a bit random really..

Any ideas on how to clean the contact of the key so it should become more responsive again?

Sorry, no answer, but I'm a little jealous you've got a Das Keyboard. And your having this problem makes me a little less jealous. Are you aware of any material that has gotten down into the mechanism? – music2myear Apr 22 '11 at 19:15
@music2myear well there was quite some rubble in the keyboard i gotta admit, it was quite hard to clean that. But afaik there shouldn't be anything in there that is that small. And to make you a little bit more jealous again, i never had a better keyboard than this one :p – Antwan van Houdt Apr 22 '11 at 19:29
I shall just be happy for you, vicariously reveling in the fact that somewhere someone keyboards awesomely. :) BTW, have you tried alcohol on the contacts? – music2myear May 5 '11 at 19:09
Hmm I used an airblower and now it seems fine.. or atleast I haven't had any problems so far, see a comment without any M's missing :d -- me happy nao ^^ – Antwan van Houdt May 5 '11 at 21:43
