    If you get characters out just by tapping on it, I would suspect a loose connection somewhere. The easy one to test is where it plugs into the computer. Otherwise, you'll have to take the keyboard apart and look for a mylar circuit similar to the picture attached. The tab part should plug into a circuit board connector. Gently pull it out and plug it back in. Note that sometimes there is a locking mechanism on the connector, so be sure to look for that.

    Best of luck.
