Re: wireless keyboard

Its very easy just use a philips screwdriver undo all screws, carfully separte the keyboard then clean inside if it is still wet then use kitchen towel or a clothe to absorb any moisture.  If its already dried out then use
 a damp cloth to clean then kitchen towel over all u  have cleaned.
reasemble and test if fails then a new keyboard is needed check link,35&n=137

Shift keys dont work

If it's just the one shift key messing up it may be dirty. Pick up a can of Air-dust and blow out the key board and all around the "shift" key....also look to see if anything is spilled on it too....this can be fixed with isopropyl alcohol and compressed air. if this don't work then you need a new keyboard.

Hi there.
Treat this as a hard lesson learnt. If you are not experienced with this kinda thing, take it into a repair shop or claim on your extended warrenty from the store. It will involve taking the netbook appart in quite a major way that will void any warrenty. I would visit the store you purchased it from first before you start messing with it, then if you get nowhere, revisit this post and let us know your results so far then we'll go from there.

Keys sticking from spill on keyboard.

Here's a little trick I have learned, from being the type of person that would cause a spill, and guessing that it was something sugary, that is the reason it is sticking, to fix this, get a clean, lint free rag and get some rubbing alcohol and dab just a little on the rag then wipe it across the keybord, pressing down on the keys so it can get down to the bottom of the keys. Do this as many times as it takes to wipe the entire area covered by keys.

Logitech MK700 wireless keyboard - key sticking down

Start with a can of compressed air and blow the keyboard out. If this is unsuccessful, unscrew the back and try to blow it that way. Worst case scenario is that wet sugars (soda) may have gotten into the keyboard and you have to buy a new one. Try getting a keyboard cover for additional protection.

Another trick to possibly try before you re-download drivers is a:/ check the batteries, b:/ try relocating or resetting the mouse and keyboard to the remote by depressing the button on the receiver then pressing the connect button on the keyboard. My logitec did the same thing and after changing the batteries and re connecting the keyboard and mouse, it befan to work correctly. If those easy fixes don't help then I agree with previous suggestion of re-downloading current drivers as they may have become corrupt or conflicting with other software within your computer. Good luck!!

Left button recently requires "extra" effort to make it work...any explanation?

Have you spilled liquid such as coffee or soda into the mouse? If not, the micro switch is starting to fail under the button.

We spilled a soda on our sony vio it wont come it fried

Yes, fried and sticky :c)

Keyboard are relatively cheap; you can pick them up for around $10 however, in the meantime if you want to "try" and save that one you can try soaking it in hot water for about 10 minutes and then running water over it for about fifteen minutes. Let completely dry for 3 - 5 days. (Please make sure it's unplugged first!) This probably won't work but I have heard of it working on a very very rare occasion.

Top letters pressed also types the above numbers

Hi there.
After a liquid spill on the keyboard and you have done your best to clean it and the keys still do the same thing, your only option is to replace the keyboard.
I have come across this problem many times, some keyboards you can clean and bring them back to good working order and others you have no choice but to replace.
Liquids like soda or sweet coffee do the worst damage to keyboards.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

You could try removing the keys out of the keyboard and cleaning it with a damp cloth and a can of compressed air. If the tea hit the circuitry of the board though you may have to get a new one.
