I'm fiddling with my new CF7+ and am getting tired of holding down alpha lock.  Should this key toggle caps or is more like a shift key?  Mine is acting like the Shift key on my PC keyboard am I'm thinking it should be more like the caps lock.

the alpha lock on a TI 99 4A should 'latch' when it is pushed down.

Yep probably the key is either misaligned or broken

Thanks for the info!  Kinda makes sense since I'm also seeing some keys repeat like crazy with the slightest touch.  Now off to find a replacement.  Any tips on where to find one other than eBay?  Are there some brands/versions that are preferable?
