I'm trying to take my keyboard apart to dry out a little water that got inside. I have all the screws out but there is one section in the very center of the keyboard that won't come apart. I'm afraid I'm going to break something if I pull to hard. Is there some trick to getting the cover off the back of the keyboard?

Electronics dont do very well when they get wet. i would take it apart and dry it out with a hair dryer. All you have to do is take the screws out on the back and pop the 2 halves apart. You do have to be careful. once it;s apart you will see why it was;nt working. good luck
Fifteen phillips head screws. four hidden under rubber anti slip pads.carefully peel off with small flathead.four triangle snap fite and one retangular one needs to be broken off with small flathead.carefully pull apart.inside has silicon pad under keys.VERY FRAGILE.use care when washing.i took the keyboard and soaked it and scrubbed it with sponge and brush with HOT water.mine was very dirty.shook off excess water and dried it with a hair drier.screwd it back together.wors fine even though i broke off the snap fit connecters. now its super clean and fresh
This depends on how good you are at opening your keyboard. Inside the keyboard is a thin plastic film that has contacts for the keyboard to make contact with. They are very sensitive to water. If you can take the keyboard apart carefully and can get to the plastic file and make sure its dry. (which i am guess its still got water in it cause they usually do) Then you can save your keyboard. Other wise sorry buy another one. The way i look at it is you are probabley going to be buying a new one anways what have you got to lose :)
I had the same issuse i got all keys working again except my f3 button. and i use it all the time so i adventually had to buy another keyboard. However if you like to take things apart :) now is a good time.
Hope this helps thanks
There are two hidden screws under the two stickers on the back of the keyboard. Just feel around for slight indentations and stick your screwdriver bit down into it and unscrew. Keep in mind though, this may void your warranty.
take the keyboard, flip it over, bump it on something, NOT TOO HARD, maybe some garbage is in between the keys, shake it a little to see if something comes out, don't worry about keys, springs, whatever, keyboard won't fall apart :) sometimes stuff gets in.
It definitely sounds like liquid damage in the keyboard. It is a classic symptom for an error to appear when the machine is moved. If you want to try fixing it yourself, you can take it apart and take the screws out of the plate under the keyboard. you should find thin plastic membranes with little tracks and dots running all over them (carbon stripes). The membrane will plug into a board somewhere. Take these out (noting how they go back in), and gently wash with a little detergent in warm water. Just sponge them, don't scrub hard. Now dry thoroughly. put back in keyboard and plug keyboard back into circuit board. Put screws in and try it.
If you need more help, just ask.
take keyboard apart. or wait for it to dry out. put keyboard in front of a fan. wait a day or so, try it again. if you cant get it to work, try taking it apart and checking the pads under the keys for damage.
