It's the "o" key

The only reason it's working now is because I'm banging the hell out of it.

Help! I don't have time to take it in for repair. Can I do something, do you think?

have you shaken it, upside down, in case there's a bit of food stuck under it?

get a cotton bud and some vodka - make sure its pretty dry though

pop the key off first ofcourse

Flip out the key (thin cover that you tap on). Clean underneath with an cotton bud (ear bud) and a little bit of window cleaning liquid (or any other cleaning lotion sure to evaporate fast). Click the key back in place.
