SOURCE: spill soda on my laptop keyboard

It is likely the only problem is that the soda is causing the keys to stick. There is probably no damage to any other internal components. Usually, laptop keyboards have a metal-based frame/tray that will protect the internal components from minor spills.

If you want to get rid of the cracking sound, you'll need to purchase a replacement keyboard from the laptop manufacturer or another source such as eBay, and then remove the sticky keyboard and replace it with the newly purchased one.

SOURCE: 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.

SOURCE: space bar is sticky du to liquid accident ( soft

If the space bar works but is sticky, try removing the spacebar and expose the hinges. Clean the liquid off with a moist cotton bud. Then fix the spacebar back in place, line the spacebar up and press gently until you hear the hinges click into place on the spacebar.
If the spacebar does not work as it should or it won't click back in place, then the only option is to replace the keyboard.
Keyboards are available on the Internet, I purchased one from Yall Store.
Use this link to their WEB site :-

SOURCE: my second row of keys on the keyboard will not

The issue could be with many cause. In order to isolate this issue I request you to perform the below steps :

====================CLEANING KEYBOARD============

To get started, find a soft, lint-free cloth and some window cleaner like Windex. Turn laptop upside down and give it a gentle shake. This will clear out dust and debris that has fallen in between the keys. If your vacuum has a soft brush attachment, you can vacuum the keyboard gently, too.

Now, spray a tiny bit of Windex on your cloth. You do not want it wet, just barely damp.

Gently scrub all the areas around the keys of your keyboard. Watch for an excess fluid squeezing out of your cloth. Should this happen, dab it up quickly.

Once the housing for the keys is cleaned, focus on cleaning the keys themselves. Gently stroke the keys with the barely damp cloth, repeating strokes until each key is cleaned.

Badly soiled keys can be (try and if are not difficult to pull them out do not attempt) pried off the board, cleaned and snapped back into place.

You can clean crevices by wrapping your cloth over a table knife and carefully and gently running it between keys. Do not push down into the mechanisms below the keys, though.

Once you have cleaned the keyboard to your satisfaction, let it set to dry for half an hour, just in case it is damp.

Also note that office supply stores sell cans of air. It's not just air; it's air that comes out of the can with enough pressure to push dust out of places it shouldn't be. The cans come with little straw-like tubes that you can attach to the sprayer so that you can get inside your removable drives and between the keys of your keyboard.

*** Uninstall and reinstall Device drivers from Device Manager ***

1. Click Start, type Device Manager in search field.
2. Click on Device Manager.
3. Click "+" beside Keyboards Device Category.
4. Right-click the listed Keyboard and select Uninstall.
5. Restart the system.

Windows will redetect the device on restart and reinstalls the drivers automatically.

It is impossible to clean it, especially when the computer was powered up when you spilled orange juice on the keyboard, it most likely shorted out some components in the keyboard.
I suggest you buy a new keyboard.

Keyboard spill


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.

Toshiba L355D-S7815 - Spilled Juice - Short Circuit


Flip the lid open and flip the laptop (opened) and set it on a towel or something. It might take a week or a bit more to dry out. But you might be ok once it does dry out.

Although the best thing to do is to take it apart. And use a safe cleaner for circuit boards like alcohol (not wood alcohol).

Since you supplied power while it was wet. You could have have done permanent damage to the intergrated circuits. But let's hope not.

Spilled Grape Juice


To give it a good cleaning, you will need to remove the keyboard and clean anywhere you can see juice or feel stickiness. You can buy the expensive computer cleaners, but I suggest 50/50 rubbing alcohol and Q-tips. Remove the battery and C-mos battery to make sure there is absolutely no power to the machine what so ever. After cleaning inside, you will want to give it a good 24 hours to dry, ensure that there is no moisture before applying power. If the juice reached the bottom of the machine, you may need to remove the screen, split the cases, and take the motherboard out, in order to clean the bottom side of the board. If you leave juice anywhere on the board it will gum up, and the acids in the juice will corrode and detierate the circuitry on the board causing a motherboard failure. Now the keyboard, in order to thoroughly clean the keyboard, I suggest that you spray a good amount of the rubbing alcohol in the keyboard, shake it or blow it out with air, then take paper towels and daub up the rest. Repeat this two or three times, then let it dry approx 24 hours. Sometimes the keyboard won't recover after a spill and will need replaced. If it works properly, then, after using the keyboard for a while, you will notice if any of the keys are sticking. Take the sticky key or keys off and clean them individually. I know it's alot of work, but it'll teach you not to keep open drinks around your laptop. It did me, I've ruined one machine, two keyboards, and thoroughly cleaned a third very expensive machine of mine to keep it working, but I finally learned to drink from a sippy around my laptops.
