First thing you want to do is keep it from getting worse. Open the laptop all the way up and set it keyboard face down on a soft towel to wick away any juice. Once that is dry you can remove the keyboard (or have someone help you) by typing in you model number and "keyboard replacement" in Google - you are bound to find a tutorial. Most of the time you will gently pry up the cover where the on/off switch and panel lights are (above the keyboard) and then remove a couple of screws and lift the keyboard out. Be very careful with the ribbon cable(s) that connect to the motherboard and make sure you have grounded your static electricity (not usu. a problem in the south). Also check that no juice has gone beneath the kbd - if so best to take to a shop for cleaning. Many times you can rinse the keyboard and let it dry and it will work. If not you can get a cheap replacement on eBay.

Spilled juice on my H P Pavilion laptop keyboard, keyboard is not working at all. Please help!


Do you have an HP Accidental Damage extended warranty? If you do, you can call HP's tech support and get it fixed/replaced.

If you don't have the extra warranty, you can try to carefully pop the keyboard keys off and carefully clean underneath as the contacts below the keys are possibly stuck in the down position.

You may have to take it to a service centre and have a technician open up the laptop and see if it can be cleaned and try to "unstuck" the keyboard keys.

Heavy to press keys


replacing the keyboard is an easy fix ,
just order one on ebay ,
so much of the keyboard has little nooks and parts that
even if you take it out and wash and dry it the paste will still be present.
just search for a pavilion dv8000 keyboard
they are around 40 including shipping.
