my keyboard was pressing random keys, i thought it just needed to clean it

so i open it cleaned and it looked it was working fine

leaved pc alone for some time and it was doing the same thing.
but then it stops pressing random keys and some of them don't work "f5, 7,8"
i had open the keyboard and that keys dont work when i press the plastic directly
the same thing happens on linux and i checked the connection to pc

ideas how to repair or find the problem?

Sounds like either something got stuck under the keys while you were cleaning them, or you're the keyboard itself is just plain going bad. Take it apart again, get some canned air, blow through every little crack. If they still don't work, then the keyboard is dying and you might as well just buy another.

i took it apart 2 times, it still does the same thing with only the plastic sheets... i even raised them and used air on it, nothing changes...

If it's not a gaming keyboard, you can get a regular keyboard for a cheap price. But for how long have you used your keyboard?

i think i ave this keyboars since maybe 2005 and up...
i relly wanted to repair this brick...
