Question about HP 32sII Calculator
I carefully opened my HP 32S but this has not be useful for fixing it: there isn't serviceable parts inside, only a big IC and a lo of thin wires that start from IC's leads.
I could have opened the keyboard assembly too, but I think that the problem is more serious and it depends from the CPU.

lala linda is right. . . repairing the power pin isn't that expensive ... In fact I've fixed some myself and it's really not that hard. It is time consuming and tedious to make sure that all the bits and pieces fo back in the right place. Take some pix as you take it apart and you will find that's it much easier when you go to re-assemble the unit. btw . . . The power pins are available on the net for $ 10 or less usually.
Also . . .Once you get it fixed get a Cable retention device to make sure you don't damage the pin a second time. Personally I recommend (and use) this one.

Majority of time it's the lcd that has a problem which creates the red line, otherwise it's the GPU (video processor).
Try hooking up your computer to an external monitor. If you see the line on the external chances are it's the lcd.
This method of testing isn't fool proof but either way the problem is hardware related.
Let me know if you have any other questions.

Very possibly, yes. Usually the internal parts of RF keyboards are heavily customized and a shop would need to keep tons of parts for every different keyboard under the sun.
Also, replacement plus spares will often cost more than a new keyboard, so there's little advantage in repairing.
Depending on the spillage, sometimes you can repair the keyboard. RF keyboards are much more difficult to fix because the spillage may have shorted circuits or oxidised contacts and tracks.
But if you've nothing to lose, and especially if some keys are working (indicating that the transmitter electronics, the most delicate part, is still alive), then you can take apart the keyboard (screws underneath, and retainer clips too). Under the shell there are other screws holding the typing surface. Removing them, the back of the surface comes off, revealing a contact membrane and a wealth of printed curlicues.
Wipe the curlicues with a lint-free cloth and alcohol to remove coffee and sugary liquids. Inspect carefully for oxidation and rust; sometimes you can remove it with a pencil rubber. Spray with a contact enhancer spray such as DeoxIT.
The membrane is the tricky part: usually lukewarm water or alcohol will do, but it depends on the formulation of the contact pads (usually black round thingies). Sometimes you can see which pads have been affected by the spillage and clean them with a cotton swab.
With RF keyboards priced around US$ 30, frankly I'd do that only for the fun of it.
