They felt bad, as they, except for the F1 key, would pivot back and forth
over the center of the button. As I messed with the F3 key to try and get
it to spring back up, it broke into the unit.
The F2 key then proceeded to do the same. When I opened up the face plate
to try and put them back, the F1 key broke out too.

When you say 'bad', do you mean they don't feel right?
For instance, my F2 button has 'broken' meaning it doesn't click properly,
but if I use my
finger nail it would still just about click.
Someone mentioned a few weeks ago about fixing it with a bit of glue, I
havn't tried it yet though.
Please let everyone know how you get on fixing it as it could be usefull.

F-KeysI just acquired a JBR FM20, and the only thing that appeared to be
wrong was

the battery.

I put one in, and it seemed to work.

But now I have found that the F-keys have blown out.

They must have been bad, and that is why the guy got rid of it so cheap.

They did work for a moment, as I pushed F1, after installing Rockbox, and It

spoke "Bookmarks".

But it cut out, and I felt the other keys, and F3 was bad, and the others

soon failed.

So, is it easier, from those of you who have done this, to glue them back,

or is it easier to find a new panel of all 3 keys?

All 3 are now completely off.

Thanks for any ideas.
