Toshiba Laptop Keyboard Not Working

Hi all.

I split a small amount of water on my laptop keyboard. Wiped it up straight away, and didn't think any damage had been done. However, when I went to use it later, the keyboard was not working at all. The light under the F11 key was also lit. I rebooted a few times (no problems there) but again, the keyboard would not respond. The F11 light has since gone out, but when I reboot, I get a pinging sounds, as though one of the keys is stuck. I've hit every key several times but I still get the pinging sound. Now, when I reboot, I don't get as far as Windows at all now. It asks me which profile I want to reboot in (L for last, and D for another) but as the keyboard isn't responding, I can't select any of these. HELP!
Happy Christmas!

    Thanks Alan. I'd already taken the hairdryer to it. I left it off all over xmas. It reboots now but is very slow. And only half the keys work - the keys on the side where I spilt the drink no longer work, but the keys on the otherside do. Time to invest in a new laptop....

Pls dont use your notebook yet, since there are still moisture in it. try to use a hair blower but place the hair blower at least 2 feet away. you dont want to melt the plastic in your notebook. blower it for 20minutes then try to turn on your computer. if it still does not work. I suggest to bring it to the service center of your notebook.

Spilled some red wine in my Toshiba Satellie L640 and now some of the keys stick or don't work so I would like to clean it. 1. How does one do this? 2. Is it a bad idea to do this? I'd rather not...


Hi.

You can try cleaning the keyboard but the keyboard has to be removed first before you attempt to clean it. That hopefully will work, however please be aware that if the wine has gotten between the keyboard membrane then it could cause the keyboard to type other characters not assigned to them or others as well as their own when you reinstall the keyboard.

To clean the keyboard first we have to remove it. Turn the laptop off and close the lid, remove any AC power that's connected. Turn the laptop over and then take out the battery.
In the battery compartment remove the 2 screws holding the keyboard bezel down that are circled in the picture below. (the keyboard bezel is thin piece of plastic that runs the length of the laptop above the keyboard)

When the screws are removed turn the laptop back over, open the lid and carefully lift up the keyboard bezel and remove it from the laptop like in the picture below.

Next you have revmove the three screws securing the keyboard in place like in next picture.
leecom72_17.jpg

Lift up the top side of the keyboard and rest it on the palm rest/touchpad. Be very careful as the keyboard is still connected to the motherboard like in this picture below.

Now you have to remove the keyboard. In order to remove the keyboard you'll have to unlock the connector and release the cable.
Look at the next picture and lift up the right side of the locking tab so it opens up at a 90 degree angle as shown and carefully pull away the ribbon cable

Lift the keyboard away from the laptop and then get a clean, warm, damp cloth and start to wipe the top of the keyboard. Don't try to remove the keys as you can damage the cradles and also they are very hard to put back on.
Keep on rinsing the cloth with clean warm water and wring it out a bit. Keep on repeating this until the keys release and become springy again.
Once you are happy with keyboard just reinstall the keyboard by reversing the steps above.

When you have re-assembled the laptop turn it on and open a notepad or text document and see if the keyboard is typing all the correct characters for the printed symbol. If some are not working or are typing multiple characterst then you will need to replace the keyboard. Click on the blue link below for an idea.

Toshiba Satellie L305D-S5974--spilled orange juice on keyboard, keys sticking, speakers not working...what are my choices


When this happens, you should fully disassemble the laptop & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of liquid on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, liquid damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no liquid seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.
If the liquid fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

Water was poured on the keyboard. Battery was removed immediately and wiped dry as was the keyboard. Keyboard was placed under the fan upside down for approximately 2hrs after which battery was replaced...


First thing is to not try powering the laptop on after the water fell on it. Next, you should remove the battery off the laptop immediately. When this is done, you should fully disassemble the laptop & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of water on the circuit boards & on other components.

Touch Pad on my laptop is not working


Follow the guide below to tear the laptop down, you are extremely fortunate that the device is even working. Electronic sircuits and water have never been a good match, and your keyboard and touchpad are essentially just large electronic circuits. There is probably some water still somewhere under the keyboard and it is probably in contact with the tochpad cable or socket. When you have the keyboard off, use a hair dryer on warm and completely dry out all components and make sure all the small flat cables are tight in their sockets.

Toshiba laptop a25-s2792 keyboard got small amount of moisture


If the keyboard is not working and you have cleaned the connections but still doesn't work then you probably have bad hardware so you will need to get a replacement keyboard and install it normally.

Toshiba satellite touchpad & keyboard stopped working


As I understand your keyboard is now working and your usb mouse. But the touchpad does not work.

Have you or someone opened up your laptop recently? If so it is possible the touchpad was not connected properly.

Can you please post the exact name of your laptop. I'll see what else I can figure out for you.
