Sony VGP-WKB1/G keyboard not working properly

My keyboard is playing up - it connects to the PC fine (as it is wireless) and I have never had any issues with this, but in the last few days, some of the keys have stopped working too well. It would seem to be maybe something spilt on the keyboard as the keys which don't work (most notably the space bar, 'F' key, 'V' key and 'J' key), will work if jabbed hard repeatedly! And they sometimes work fine, sometimes are worse than others.

But when normally typing, they often don't register which is becoming incredibly frustrating.

Assuming something has been spilt on it, and it's not just e.g. the keyboard wearing out, how easy is it to remedy this? Is it possible for example to remove the keys in order to clean it, and how would I go about this? As I don't want to do this unless I'm 100% sure I can put them back on again without causing any damage!

Once you have checked the batteries in the keyboard or mouse, then push the tiny little button on the side of the computer around the peripheral plug ins. After pushing that, hit the connect button on the wireless device. They should be re-syncd.

It would just be easier and less frustrating for you to replace the keyboard.

My wifi is


Use the "Fn" key in combination with one of the F Function keys(example - F1 F2-F3 etc.) above the set of numeric keys. It will be a dual symbol key, meaning it will have wireless icon printed on it or the word "WiFi" in addition to the F number. It is usually one of the first 3 or 4 F keys. Remember, the "Fn" key must be pushed at the same time. It is a key combination like using <shift> and a regular alpha key to put a letter in CAPS.
Hope this helps Fixa! I am online if you need further help.

You will find that it is FAR cheaper to simply buy a new keyboard rather than attempt to fix the broken one.
