Coke is sticky when dried, if you can, disconnedt the keyboard and pull the keys off, a flat blade screwdriver should work and wipe everything down.
Or buy a new keyboard for about 10 bucks

Keyboard dont type


No matter how careful you may be, knocking a cup of coffee or spilling a glass of soda over your keyboard may happen. This does not, however, mean the end of your keyboard. If you act quickly, you may be able to fix your wet keyboard to avoid any corrosion of its electronic components or any short circuit which might render it unusable. By following a few recommendations, you should be able to fix your wet computer keyboard.

Unplug the keyboard from your computer immediately after the spill to avoid any corrosion or short circuit. If you spilled water over your laptop's keyboard, turn your computer off by clicking on "Shut Down" on "Turn Off" in the start menu, unplug the power supply and remove the battery. Turn the keyboard upside down and shake it to remove most of the water from it. Take a hair dryer and set it to its lowest temperature setting. Use it to dry any water which might remain under your keyboard's keys. Wait at least 12 hours before plugging your keyboard into your computer again. If your computer is a laptop, wait 12 hours before turning it on again. For Other Liquids Disconnect the keyboard from your computer immediately after the spill to avoid any short circuit or corrosion. Turn your computer off by selecting "Shut Down" or "Turn Off" in the start menu, remove the battery and disconnect the power supply. Place paper towels on a table, turn the keyboard upside down and shake it over them to allow most of the liquid to fall down. Take a few clean paper towels and wipe the liquid off your keyboard's keys. To clean between the keys, you can also use cotton swabs with just a little bit of water. If the liquid which you spilled over your keyboard contained a high amount of sugar, such as soda or sugared coffee, you might have to remove some of your keyboard's keys to clean the surface under the keys with paper towels or swabs. You can do so by lifting them gently with a screwdriver or by using a key remover, which you can find in some IT stores. Wait at least 12 hours before using your keyboard again. If your computer is a laptop, wait the same length of time before turning it on again.

Hp G62 dead after spill


In most cases, you are in a position where you may need to return it to HP for repair.

There is one thing you can try, but it takes a very gentle hand and touch: use something like Fantastic, or a more eco-friendly spray solution. Gently spray the key board all over where the spill went, which
means probably the whole keyboard.

Let it sit a few minutes, then turn it upside down on paper towels and let it drain.

Then, gently spray it again with plain water and let it sit upside down on more paper towels. Allow it to drain for a long time, something like a day or more.

When you turn the laptop right side up, you may find the keyboard fully functional again. But there is no guarantee. This works mostly on keyboards attached to desktop computers, not integrated into laptops.

The concept is the same - cleanse the keyboard, flush it, and allow it plenty of time to dry. Remember, liquid and electricity, no matter how low voltage, like a keyboard, are not friendly. If you try to use it before it is completely dry, you can fry more than just the keyboard.

It's possible to help it along with a gentle application of a hair blower, but not until after the two cleanings, and at least a day upside down on paper towels.

Good luck.

Cheers!

I spilled I tea on my Gateway FX keyboard and mousepad. The keys are working now but I'm worried they will get sticky. I cleaned up as much as possible by patting with a towel to soak up the tea. ...


Before you do anything, unless it is already dried, (turn it off first!) turn the laptop upside down and gently tap the back to coax any liquid out. Then do NOT turn it on until it is totally dried. You can clean the keys and pad it with a DAMP (NOT wet) cloth with plain soap and water. Be careful not to get any water down into the keyboard itself so it doesn't short it out. However this will not clean whatever liquid may have gone inside. Hopefully none did else you could end up with a bigger problem...

Mykeyboardisnotworkingeverytimeiclickitnothinghappentellmewhattodo


dirt between the buttons can be one reason, another is wear between the contacts, keyboard is easy cleaned, just put it upside down and use stiff brush to clean between the buttons.

if contacts are dirty, usually caused by spill (my son spill coffe at least twice a year on keyboard during last 10 years of his programming...). easy way is to if use corded keyboard (if wireless start from step3)
1. switch off the computer
2. remove keyboard cable from socket
3. remove batteries if installed
4. turn keyboard upside down
5. remove all screws
6. turn back to correct position
7. remove top frame (with keys)
8. check for any physical debris and remove if any
9. lift rubberised pad and whipe bottom of it with methylated spirit, allow to dry
10. check if plastic film can be separated, if so, whipe each layer with methylated spirit, do not under any circumstances break any of printed conduit lines.
11. when all is dry, put all back together in reverse order. watch for little springs present in some models.
12. go to shop and buy new keyboard... they are about $5.00 to $250.00 in that broad range you can find something suitable and affordable...

this is general description of the keyboard "gizzards", they vary slightly between the brands but principle is this same. if you have keyboard made before 1994, it will be electro-mechanical switches and that will cause more trouble...

Coke spilled on nokia e90 and front display is not working


Remove the battery immediately, and use a hair dryer to dry up all the traces of coke. Do it for a few minutes at a time, many times till you are sure that the phone is totally dried up. Then insert the battery and poweron the phone. By using it wet I only hope that you have not short circuited some portion. DO NOT USE THE HEAT while doing it.

Sharp calculator


I had the same problem happen to me. What I did was carefully take the calculator apart using a T-10 Torx screwdriver to remove the back cover. I then used a compressed air can and blew air into all the crevices and holes in the calculator. I was able to dry almost all of the soda the spilled, however some of the soda dried and turned into somewhat of a sticky mess. I was able to carefully wipe the sticky parts clean with a tissue. After doing all of that my calculator worked perfect.

Some Keys are not working


There are two reasons you may need to clean a keyboard: the slow accumulation of gunk, and keyboard emergencies such as dumping a cup of coffee on your keys.

If you dump liquid on your keyboard, shut down your computer immediately, disconnect the keyboard, run it over to the sink, and turn it upside down to drain. If you spilled a sticky liquid, such as Coke on the keyboard, you can squirt water on the upside-down keyboard to rinse it, says Mike Nadelman of computer-repair.com. Don’t submerge the keyboard in water; let it dry upside down.

Compressed air is the keyboard cleaner’s best friend, and it’s the quickest and easiest way to get dust and hair out of a keyboard. I started by disconnecting the keyboard, carrying it over to a clean surface, and giving the keyboard a few good zaps with the cold gas. I kept hitting the keyboard with the compressed air pretty often throughout the cleaning process.

To cope with stained keys and the hairs trapped under the plastic, though, start popping keys off. Keyboard manufacturers don’t recommend popping off keys, but it’s generally harmless if you handle the keys gently. Stick two plastic knives under opposite sides of a key and pry upward, exerting equal force on both sides. The key is guaranteed to fly off across the room, but that’s how you do the job without breaking the key or the switch. Once keys are off, they’re actually washable. Rub stains with a wet cotton swab dunked in soapy water, which does the trick for most messes. Save the alcohol for truly stubborn gunk, because it can damage the ink on the keys, and never, ever, ever use ammonia-based solvents such as Windex.

At first, avoid the big keys, such as the Spacebar, SHIFT, TAB, BACKSPACE, CAPS LOCK, and ENTER. Those keys may be loaded with springs or hinges that make them difficult to remove or replace.

If your keys feel sticky or are grinding, a drop of a light machine oil, such as WD-40, placed in the center of where the key strikes the keyboard, on the hinge, or on the spring (if your key has one) should do the trick, Nadelman told me.

As you remove keys, you’ll need to remember where to put them. Some people make diagrams or put them on the table in the exact order they were in on the keyboard.

Sharp calculator


Don't know what model of Sharp you have but most sharps you can take keyboard apart and clean the rubber keypad magnets and the mylar circuit with warm water. let dry and reinstall. Check to see if Coke did not get in other parts. Do not use anything strong such as thinner. Rubbing alschol is good because it evaporates. Good luck
