First post.... Hello, everybody!
I bought 3 at CostCentral, two are good, and I have one with the Divide key requiring significantly more pressure. (I already reported this, and have received an e-mail back instructing me to start a case with HP tech support, which I will do shortly.) It makes starting the keyboard test a bit more interesting.... ;-)
And when I do get the keyboard test to start, I also have a key in the third row (the Two or Three key, somewhere near there...) that doesn't always "catch".
The heat stakes thing is an interesting theory, and one I think should be pursued further. I have a 32Sii you have to press down on right below the center of the the display in order to turn it on and have all the keys work, and I have seen at least one other Pioneer on TAS that was described as needing the same "lean" on it to make it work.
I'll try the "lean-on" trick with my 15C LE when I get home and see if it acts similarly.
For those keeping track (and looking for possible correlations between LE #s and Serial #s), I have:
15C LE #1: LE#02173, S/N CNA1310KC1
15C LE #2: LE#02196, S/N CNA1310KBH
15C LE #3: LE#02198, S/N CNA1310KBQ
12C 30th: #05965, S/N CNA13007NQ
I can't remember whether it's #02196 or #02198 that has the bad divide key. Gotta go home and dig them out of the boxes again to check...
