Question about HP USB Wireless Keyboard/Optical Mouse WIRELESSKM

1 Answer

My tea just spilt into the keyboard, can i fix it? I spilled tea with a little honey in it onto my keyboard last night. Initially it worked, then repeated a keystroke or two; now it isn't operable. Blue light on the wireless connector flickers when the keyboard is turned on. Can it be repaired?

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.

Spilled water on ultra nova

Sounds ok to me. You might try to find some dessicant and put it in a box with the synthsizer.

I have a gateway keyboard ku-0833 and its working fine but I spilt a little coffee on it and a few of the keys are stiff to push. Is there a way I can clean it, tried using cotton swabs around the keys but...

You can pry out the keys using a butter knife and use rubbing alcohol to clean the underneath.

if the coffee got into the connectors you might be out of luck.

When i spilt mt dew on my keyboard i took out the battery let it decharge for 5 minutes. I put it in a pan and poured rubbing alcohol on it and let it sit for 5 min. While it was sitting i swished the alcohol around a little bit so it could flow. took it out and let it dry for about 1-2 hours and it worked perfectly. this is orta used as a last resort

Spilt tea [on dk8eyb[oardk8 tjh7is is w2jh7aq`t jh7aq`ppens

You will need to open it up and make sure all the liquid is cleaned out. There are several layers of plastic sheet with contacts printed on them, you will have shorted them out.
You would be better off buying a new keyboard, i have tryed to fix this problem myself, there are always a couple of keys that never work again
