    Would like to avoid the hassle of having to ship it back to newegg if its an easy fix, one of the keys came stuck down, when I removed the key found the housing was damaged, is this fixable, didn't want to fiddle around w/ it and void the warentee

    If this is BNIB that way, I wouldn't mess around with it. Either get in touch with the point of sale or go direct to the manufacturer and get it replaced.

    Send it back. You can buy individual switches but it's not worth the hassle to void your warranty just to fix it yourself.

    +1 Agreed. Although it is a hassle, send it back to the point of sale. Its worth the wait to get one you know is ok, rather than fiddle with it yourself.
