My enter key is sticking. How do I fix?
Probably a stuck stabilizer. If you (or anybody you know) is comfortable taking the keyboard apart, re-lubing the stabilizer and putting it back together, that would be the best way to fix it.
My numpad enter key is sticking for the same reason, but my XMIT is my office keyboard so I won't have a chance to disassemble it for a while. Long-term, though, I know I'm going to need to re-lube the stabilizers for the same reason.
It would be worthwhile if I could swap some heavy springs while I'm at it. Is there a such thing as universal 70-80g keyboard springs?
For the stabilizers themselves, I have no idea.
For the keyswitches, I see a few sets on ebay. Usually it's between $8 and $12 for a set of 108 springs (so you'd get one for every switch plus four spares). They ship from the factory, so if you're North America-based like I am then expect to wait a week or three for delivery.
I'd also like heavier springs, can you give me a hint on search terminology to find em? Thx!
The ones I have on my watch list are https://www.ebay.com/itm/182781616043 if this seller has the weight you want, go for it or search for any keywords that this seller uses. @Flyingtoaster this one's for you as well.
I personally am not spending any more money on my XMIT board until I can get the stabilizers working better, but these springs are on my radar. Once the new keycaps come for my CMStorm board, maybe I'll bring the CMStorm into the office and take my XMIT home to fix the stabilizers. :)
