LG laptop LGP1 keyboard to be replaced

My son spilled the orange juice over the LGP1 laptopo keyboard. The guy in the computer workshop said the entire keyboard should be replaced. He also claimed that there are only two such keyboards left in the world (which I found very hard to believe). Would be grateful if someone can help me to find the said keyboard as well as guide me through the process of replacing it.

The guy was full of it. Go to attached site for reasonable keyboard replacement. To replace your best bet is to do a google search for replacing it and if lucky you will be rewarded with a Utube video for the procedure. Can be a PIA and you have to be real careful during the disassemly since you do not want to damage anything , including the ribbon that attaches the board to laptop. eBayeBay

SOURCE: the "i" key failed after a coffee spill. want to replace keyboard

No need to replace keyboard. If it really failed than none of the keys would work. Unplug it, turn it upside down, unscrew all the screws, open it up, clean top of he contact board with cloth dipped in alcohol. You can wash plastic parts and membrane manually in warm water with dish washing detergent. After that, wrap it in towel to dry. You can use a hair dryer but from a distance. Drying can take hours unless you work in it. Than just put all back together and screw back the screws. Plug in keyboard.

I'll start by telling you that most of the time keyboards don't recover from a spill. With that said, clean it by using a 50/50 rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle. Remove the keyboard from the machine, and spray the alcohol into the keyboard generously. Shake out the excess or blow it out with air, then use paper towels to daub up the rest. Repeat this process two or three times, then let the keyboard dry for a good 24 hours. While you have the keyboard off check for any juice or sticky areas in the machine, and clean them with the alcohol and Q-tips. Let this dry well also. After drying put the keyboard back on and try it. If you notice any sticky keys after using it for a while, then take the sticky keys off and clean them individually with the alcohol and Q-tips.

SOURCE: spilled juice on Toshiba Laptop

Dear v1ndic8d,

Spilling juice on your laptop is not always the end of your laptop. The best you thing you can do is to order a new keyboard. Go to eBay and enter the model of your laptop plus the word "keyboard" and purchase a new one. Make sure you read the description and the language, etc. Replacing the keyboard itself is not that complicated either. You may very well be able to do it yourself. Return to this site when ready and we'll help you replace it.

Good luck.

SOURCE: problems with the keyboard

Sticky keys can sometimes be fixed by hitting right shift key 10 times quickly (I'm not lying!!), and or the culprit key (x) the same way. Try that and if it doesn't work, reboot and type. If it continues, please try another keyboard.

My son's Panasonic lumix has had orange juice spilled on it. it has; 'invaded'the screen and is slow to function. can it be repaired?


Unfortunately, replacement will probably be the only solution - any liquid, especially something sweet and sticky like orange juice, is likely to ruin electronics. Can you claim on your insurance ?

I spilled orange juice on my pc keyboard unscrewed the screws in the back took it apart really sticky what should i clean it with


It is impossible to clean it, especially when the computer was powered up when you spilled orange juice on the keyboard, it most likely shorted out some components in the keyboard.
I suggest you buy a new keyboard.

If that happens with a new keyboard then the mother board is faulty and a replacement laptop is on the horizon. What happens with an external (USB) keyboard?
Hope this helps.

Laptop keyboard not operational


If you replaced the keyboard with a Dell replacement 1501 keyboard and it still doesn’t work then yes the motherboard will probably have to be replaced. If your son spilled water on the laptop it could clear up after it completely dries. If it was juice, soft drink or sport drink the laptop could develop other issues. The syrup in these kinds of drinks don’t evaporate, they just remain there and accumulate foreign particles like dust, hair, dirt and eventually start to corrode electrical contacts like acid. Similar to the terminal posts on a car battery.

Spill soda on my laptop keyboard


It is likely the only problem is that the soda is causing the keys to stick. There is probably no damage to any other internal components. Usually, laptop keyboards have a metal-based frame/tray that will protect the internal components from minor spills.

If you want to get rid of the cracking sound, you'll need to purchase a replacement keyboard from the laptop manufacturer or another source such as eBay, and then remove the sticky keyboard and replace it with the newly purchased one.
