How to fix a laptop keyboard if you spill something on it

Okay, I will now try to explain how to fix a laptop keyboard if you spill something on it (juice, coffe,.....). Problems caused by this are sticky keys, some keys don't work,.....

First of all, don't panic! Turn off your computer immediately, and pull the battery out. Unscrew a couple of screws that are holding the keyboard, and remove carefully keybord out of a laptop. Removing the keyboard can be different, depending on the laptop model. When you remove keyboard, fill a bowl with a fresh water with a few drops of a mild detergent for washing the dishes (3-5 drops per 1 liter of water). Bowl should be bigger than the keyboard, so you can submerge keybord in water. When you submerge the keyboard, gently press all the buttons with your palm, doing this you allow water to enter inside and clean the keyboard from inside. After pressing buttons for about 10 minutes, change the water for a fresh one, this time clean water, without the detergent. Do this with just clean water 2-3 times, and when you finish, shower the keyboard, just to make sure it is washed properly and the detergent is gone. DON'T USE THE HAIR DRYER TO DRY THE KEYBOARD, AND DON'T PUT IT ON DIRECT SUN. Turn the keyboard upside down and put it on a towel and let it dry. It should be dry in about 6-8 days on a room temperature, so be patient. DON'T EVER wash the keyboard with alcohol or something like that.

This is very good way to fix the keyboard, i solved a great number of keyboards using this method.

How do I fix sticky keys on netbook?

Physically sticky keys because you spilled something on them or sticky keys keyboard shortcuts?
The first you don't really unless you want to dismantle the keyboard and clean the entire thing (do-able but it would take you a long time and you risk breaking the pieces under each key) I would just buy a new keyboard on ebay for $15-30 and have someone replace it.
Second, keyboard short cuts you can disable under Control Panel > Ease of Use > "Make the keyboard easier to use" and uncheck sticky keys.

Comment if you need more assistance and please rate the solution if you found it useful.

I spilled orange juice on my pc keyboard unscrewed the screws in the back took it apart really sticky what should i clean it with

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.

My laptop randomly pushes buttons from my keyboard. When I turn My Toshiba Satellite L300 on it starts pushing buttons. So I'm kind of afraid to turn it off again because last time I did it, I couldn't get...

If it is still within warranty, then take it back to the store. If not, you are better off finding a tech savvy person and have that person take the computer keyboard apart and clean it properly so the keys don't stick and actually lets go.
If you have spilled anything sticky in it or used it with sticky fingers, it will most likely be the reasons for it to happen and in that case you have voided the warranty.

My left click button feels sticky or not as bouncy as my right click. How do i fix the problem? It doesn't click like my right click button. This just happened over the weekend, I'm thinking someone...

Mice are designed around common micro switches. You can take the mouse apart and take the micro switch apart if you have to.  When they get older they may not spring back like they used to... especially if the micro switch is of low quality.

Number 2 keeps coming the screen cant use the phone to ring out as number 2 on screen constant

Sounds like ya spilled a nice JUICE on it or something.

If you can somehow remove the guard to the keyboard you can clean the pad with alcohol and attempt to restore it. Something is sticking or is sticky.

If you can't remove it, do your best to clean it with alcohol with a Q-tip or something til it changes.

hopefully it hasn't been to long and it will restore the keys.

My number five key is sticky. if i press it, nothing happens, but if i apply more pressure it sticks all the way down? hellppp

I don't have that keyboard in front of me so I can't tell you if you can just clean it. Most keyboard you can't however and a sticky key means time for a replacement keyboard.

The sticky can be from a few things. Something spilled on the key is usually the one. Then you can have a mechanical problem such as the return spring (if it has them) popped out of place. And the third is just wear.

Usually not worth fixing a keyboard anymore. Replacement cost on even a good keyboard can be pretty low.

Panasonic kx-t7330 suddenly cannot use intercom and phone calls

I'm guessing the phone is 8 years old and you spilled something into the keystrip.

Start by unplugging it to see if it resets. Then, look for a mechanical failure (sticky buttons, broken buttons, etc.). Some alcohol and a Q-Tip will clean the buttons, or carefully take the phone apart and wash out the housing.

Last, but not least, any of the new 7730/31/35/36 phones will replace that set.
