Spacebar key dead - can program another key?

Hi

 

My spacebar key is no longer working, I have stripped it down and cleaned it, and reinstalled the OS, but it is definitely dead.

 

Can I program say <sym> another key to map another key?

 

Otherwise it will be a bin job and off to Samsung.

 

thanks

Sorry, you can't program other key to do the job of the space key. Likely you have moisture or something hindering the keyboard or circuitry related to your space key.

Is there any chance at all its moisture related?

I've seen this before, may times... even left on a bathroom counter during a shower or bath, a gym locker, in your sweaty pocket while running?
