How do I fix liquid spill on A1314 apple wireless keyboard

Yesterday I spilled liquid on my A1314 Apple wireless keyboard. Now some keys don't work, others (such as the volume control) act as a held down key. I had to disconnect my blue tooth connection and turn the computer off.

Search for a keyboard on eBay. Should be about $5-15. Type in "(model name) keyboard."

SOURCE: some keys not working

well sometimes you have to disassemble the whole thing, but first have a carefull look(maybe use a torch to light there) if you can pop it out from the top with a thin screwdriver or better a knife.
Notebooks tend to have plastic under the keyboard, but still be carefull, cause the plastic "shelf", on the other hand tends to have holes in it(any choice of small and big).

And note that notebooks have to be disassembled carefully and it's sometimes tricky, but on the other hand they're easily put together(if you don't damage them too badly during disassembly).

But I hope this one just needs to have a keyboard popped out(ah and don't damage the interconnect, be slow on it, mainly for motherboard integrity reasons)

I spilled soda on my Macbook Air yesterday. Today, two of the buttons are jammed together. What do to? Help!


You have to be gentle but you can use a tech sized screwdriver and pull the key off. From there you can clean if up a bit more thoroughly.

Spilled liquid on Keyboard!


1. Purchase plastic keyboard cover. 2. Keep coffee etc. anywhere not near keyboard.

For spill, unplug keyboard. If non sugar liquid, invert keyboard, shake or tap gently. Wipe with lent free absorbent cloth while still inverted. If soda or coffee with sugar, pour 1/4 cup of clear clean (distilled the best) water onto keyboard (yes), Then invert. Let dry a minimum of several hours still inverted. I cheat with a hairdryer on low 6-12 inches. After keyboard is completely dry (and cool). Plug in after turning computer off, restart, test all keys, including shift, option etc. If keys miss or don't work buy new keyboard and cover! Aloha, Cliff

Four keys in Belkin wireless keyboard are not working


If only specific keys are not working, something is obstructing those keys\' pickups which are located immediately beneath the keys. This is almost always caused by food debris or liquid spillage as dust doesn\'t provide particles big enough to cause issues.

If those four keys feel "funny" when being pressed, it\'s almost certainly a physical obstruction. If they feel "sticky" it\'s always a liquid spill. If you don\'t recall spilling anything over the keyboard, use a can of compressed air (found at office supply stores).



Turn the keyboard long side up, with the keys leaning slightly downward. Place the air nozzle close to the intersections of the keyboard, starting at one side and work your way to the other side, using short bursts of air. Repeat for every row of keys. Pay special attention to the four that do not currently work.

You\'ll probably see lots of junk fall out of the keyboard. That\'s good, if so--I would then retest the keyboard (no need to reboot the computer). That should fix it--if not, you may have to resort to pulling off the keys that don\'t work. The next possibility would be broken key hinges, but that\'s beyond the scope of this reply.



For liquids, cleaning is hit or miss. If left long enough, liquids will eat away at the circuits, or provide a short circuit and kill the component. Since only four keys are affected, I\'m really leaning towards food debris, but if you did spill a liquid, you can disassemble the keyboard and clean up any residue under and around the keys. Probably best to use rubbing alcohol and a q-tip for that--but if you\'re not comfortable taking stuff like this apart, it might be time for a new keyboard, or find a handy friend. Good luck!

I spilled salad on my computer. Curser works, but clicking gets nothing


Need to know if it's a laptop or desktop. Was the food spilled onto the keyboard or into the CPU? If the spill occurred to a desktop (detachable) keyboard, simply buy a new or used keyboard. Not expensive. A laptop is more costly to fix - requires removal of case. You can always use an external keyboard with a laptop -just plug into USB port.
You may be able to clean an external keyboard by repeatedly pressing the various keys where the spill occurred. If all else fails, get some electrical contact cleaner from Radio Shack or Auto Zone, unplug the keyboard, and spray cleaner sparingly around the keys where the spill occurred. I would not spray a laptop - too much electronics to fry. After spraying again press the keys repeatedly. Replug and look for improvement. By the way, USB keyboards are cheap on Ebay or Caigslist. I get them for $10 each,

I HAVE AN ALUMINUM WIRELESS APPLE KEYBOARD MODEL A1314. IT'S ABOUT A YEAR OLD. THE FIRMWARE IS UP TO DATE. MY CAPS LOCK IS STUCK IN THE ON POSITION (GREEN LIGHT ON).


Apple keyboards can get stuck very easily. If you have a can of compressed air (the kind marked for cleaning electronics), I would spray it under the caps lock key to see if anything comes out (make sure you keep the can of air right side up. If you turn it upside down, liquid will come out. While this is all good and fun for playing around, that liquid will do bad things to electronics).
If that doesn't work, I would take it to the apple store, as it is a hardware problem.

After liquid spill the laptop has to be disassemble and the motherboard inspected for liquid damage. In some cases cleaning the motherboard might fix the laptop.

Top letters pressed also types the above numbers


Hi there.
After a liquid spill on the keyboard and you have done your best to clean it and the keys still do the same thing, your only option is to replace the keyboard.
I have come across this problem many times, some keyboards you can clean and bring them back to good working order and others you have no choice but to replace.
Liquids like soda or sweet coffee do the worst damage to keyboards.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!
