I bought a Logitech keyboard in April/May 2012 and it has been working fine. For the last few days, I feel that sometimes it's getting hard to press the backspace key.

I am really unsure what happened.

When this happens, I press the key many times, and it will work for me. I've tried to find out on Yahoo Answer, which suggested that maybe it's about dust, but I don't know to fix it for good.

What do other people do in this case? I am reluctant to take it to a service center, because I'd rather not be without the computer for that long.

Does anyone know any good tricks to fix it?

Try turning the keyboard upside down and tapping lightly on the bottom . – ahmed Jul 11 '12 at 20:06
Return and get a replacement for your keyboard since it is only a few months old. – Jeff F. Jul 11 '12 at 20:54

Best bet would probably be to call Logitech support for a quick answer - other folks may have had the same issue so they may be able to provide a fix or let you know that you need a new keyboard. Either way, I'd give them a call first - 1-646-454-3200.
