    This is extremely easy fix if we are talking about the same thing. Just Bend the key back to where it should be plyers and maybe a key shim to get it in ideal adjustment. If you don't feel comfortable doing this, take it to your local repair guy.

      It's possible that your problem is nothing more than some bent keys. It happens all the time. If you're careful, you should be able to bend them back into place easily.... HOWEVER, be sure that your bell is properly aligned. Bent keys often indicate a more serious problem caused by the same trauma that bent the keys in the first place.

        It may be too late to post this, but DO NOT USE A PLIERS!!! Unless you're an experienced technician, you're likely to overbend or break the key and then you have worse problems. If it's too far out to bend easily into place, please take it to a technician who knows how to do this correctly...
