Water on keyboard, sat for long period, now won't start and noisy

Toshiba Satellite had water on the keyboard one day. I left it alone to dry and after a couple months turned it on. Now it makes a high pitched buzz or beep and won't go past the first screen that shows the Toshiba logo. Is there something I can do to make it work again? I did take it apart and there appears to be no rusting or evidence of water.

Just download this :) It will fix your problem. If it doesn't work, just search for Toshiba Value Added Package Vista/XP (that depends on what Operative System you've got) and download for your Operative System.

I spilled water on the keyboard and it won't fire up. What can I do?

If your Laptop is on when the water got spilled most likely it will cause harware problem I sugget if you are still under warraty to call the Customer Service of your manufacturer or the store where you bought it to check the coverage of your warranty and to what extend you are covered coz some company give warranty for accidents.

If you are already out of warranty then I sugget to call a local tech from your are to see what part got damage by the water so you will have an idea what to replace.

Hope this information will be helpful. Thank you for using FIXYA.

I have made a mess and I have got the keyboard of my thosiba satellite p105 filled with yoghurt between the keys and the board. My question is how can I get the buttons off the board while not tearing them...

I would disassemble the computer, unplug the keyboard from the laptop and drench it in plain water until the yogurt washes away. Let it dry for several days, reassemble the keyboard into the laptop, and hopefully you'll save yourself having to buy another keyboard.

Or, you could buy another keyboard off of Ebay, and install it, or have it installed.

I think that the buttons can be pryed off, but they might get damaged in the process.

Cleaning solution will not dispense

After sitting for a period of time, some of the solution may have dried in the inner walls of the feed tube from the solution tank. What I would suggest is to empty the solution tank and then fill it with hot tap water, put it back on the Floormate, and hold the solution "feed lever" on until it starts dripping water. The hot water will hopefully disolve the dried solution and allow it to flow again.

I hope this helps! :)

Need to replace keyboard on my Toshiba Satellite 1410-s173. How do I gain access? Which screws should be removed and which should be left alone?

The plastic strip above the keyboard - you need to remove it (start by using a small, flat screwdriver and using the Windows key as leverage). After that, it's three screws (L, middle, R), then set it upside down over the touchpad, and disconnect the cable by lifting the connectors up.

That oughta do it!

Spilled water on it, now it wont turn on

Removed battery first. You should disassemble it to clean and wipe it dry. From bottom to top. Under its keyboard. Don't power it on until you are sure no water remains.

Toshiba m35x-s311 a little water in the keyboard right side


I'm ArmyMason. Was this strictly water or was there any contaminates like Kool-aid or sugars in it? Water can normally be left to dry off and no harm will come to the machine as long as it was left off, but sugar can cause major issues with the machine. You are going to have to take the keyboard off the laptop and this can be done by removing the screws from underneath the laptop. If the keyboard was damaged that is a cheap and easy fix, but if its a Processor then we could be looking at spending more than it is worth. So take the keyboard off and make sure all the water is out from underneath, the Processor normally sits were the fan is, its water proof but not shock proof so if water made it ark it could have fried the Processor. The MoBo should be fine. Main thing is making sure its completely dry. Next time this happens, turn the laptop over and let the water drip out, this keeps the component above the water and out of harms way. Also disconnect the battery and power cable and leave it off until its completely dry.

I spilled tea on my packard bell easynote

Two things to check.
Open the laptop up and re-connect the keyboard connection. It has a locking mechanism so be sure to unlock that first. Also when you're doing that you can see if there's any water (tea) still in there to dry off.
If that doesn't work, then plug in an external keyboard mate, cause the only other way to fix this is to replace the keyboard, the parts to open up the laptop keyboard itself are intricate and it's much too compicated, plus I've never done that (Seeing as that it's all glued together).
Hope this helps, be sure to rate!
