There are three types of keyboard repairs that can be done on a Macbook: the butterfly switch, the plating, and the ribbon. Here’s a breakdown of each:
Butterfly Switch Repair: This is the most common type of repair, and it involves replacing the butterfly switch. This is a small component inside the keyboard that contacts the key press and determines how hard you hit the key. If it’s damaged, this can cause typos or missed letters.
Plating Repair: This type of repair involves replacing the metal plates that cover some of the keys on your keyboard. Sometimes these plates get dirty or scratched, which can cause problems like missed letters or stuck keys.
Ribbon Repair: This type of repair involves replacing one or more ribbons connecting all of the keys on your keyboard. If these ribbons get dirty or worn down, they can become stuck and cause problems like typos or missed letters.
