What is this reliance store? I'd head to an Apple Store.
Thats an Apple Reseller.
Actually this Reliance iStore is an Apple Reseller.
Let's hope it's as nice as our Apple stores.
Replacing the CAPS LOCK key.
Best solution I can recommend it to make a Genius Bar appointment at your nearest Apple Store, and let them reseat or replace the troublesome keycap. If the white sizzors inside the keycap are broke, that will need to be replaced before the key can be reseated. This can usually be done free and perhaps even while you wait.
Thanks for your suggestions folks !
I'm thinking of taking it to an Apple Store and ask them to reseat the key themselves.
Just pop it back in yourself
Take a look at how it connects.
They just snap in
I tried it,but that didn't work.
I tried to fit it myself,but that didn't work.
For popping a key back on the keyboard,
I would not even consider charging you.
However, if the key or the mount have been damaged, then the store is likely to want you to replace the keyboard and that, depending on your model of laptop, could be very expensive.
All you can do is ask them.
You can buy individual macbook pro laptop keys
You are better off getting a macbook key on your own, you can buy them from www.replacementlaptopkeys.com they sell macbook pro laptop keys, and its around $6 shipped. good luck, save yourself the hassle.
You still have to install it yourself though
Let me me very blunt.
Some may call it mean but if the owner messes up the keyboard by mashing it down wrong they are in for a bigger repair bill. The Apple store near me commented that it's a non-event trivial thing but they do it all the time and know how much force to apply and frankly have the experience.
You may get members telling you it's easy but if it was, you'd be done.
