Those look more like diodes than resistors to me. But neither resistors nor diodes normally fail unless they’re handling significant power levels, which those definitely won’t be. I take it those keys are completely dead, not just intermittent (which would indicate a dirty or bad contact or a mechanical problem).
The fact that it’s a group of keys that don’t work leads me to strongly suspect that it’s a problem with the key scanning matrix, though 8 dead keys might have been more logical.
If there are 61 keys they’re probably wired something like in a matrix of 11 columns of 6 rows. A voltage will be applied to each of the 11 columns in turn to see which of the 6 rows in that column (representing 6 keys) returns the voltage through a closed key switch. In that case it would seem that the connection to one of the 11 columns is faulty.
Hopefully you should be able to see the matrix in some form, such as 11 wires feeding the columns and 6 the rows, or those diodes wired in groups of 6. (But note, I’m only guessing 11x6 on the basis of 6 faulty keys.) It could be a bad solder joint.
