Buy a replacement keyboard or use an USB keyboard and connect it to the USB port.
Replacement keydoards are available on the Internet, I purchased one from Yall Store - use this link to their WEB site :-

You will end up trashing the laptop if you don't have it serviced.
If water has made it past the keyboard and to the motherboard, you will be done.
Don't use the unit, find a local service and repair, they may change the keyboard but you will have a working unit when it returns.
Keyboard for that unit is about $18.00 New. The inspection and blowout, another $50.00

After cleaning my kitchen aid mixer it won't turn on


You must have water in the controls, use a blower dryer and dry it all out or just let it set for a few days and see if it works again, if not you must have done something wrong assembling it, what that might be is really hard to say.

How to take apart canon pixma 432. Spilled soda in it, need to clean inside.


Hi Daniel,
Let me say, up front, that I am not a printer guru. My background is in biomedical electronics, but this procedure works in most applications. Take distilled water and pour a small amount into the area where the soda was spilled. Wait a few minutes to allow the water to dissolve the dried soda. Then pour in more distilled water to flush out the residual soda. Allow to dry. The water should rinse out the soda, and when it dries it will leave no contaminates of its own. This procedure works well on medical devices such as telemetry transmitters and cell phones that have been spilled on. I hope this helps. Thanks for asking Fixya. Dan

My son poured water on my laptop. I let it air dry for about 3 days. This is not covered by the warranty. it powers up but the screen will not come on. what do I do?


First thing is to not try powering the laptop on after the water fell on it. Next, you should remove the battery off the laptop immediately. When this is done, you should fully disassemble the laptop & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of water on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, water damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no water seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.
If the water fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

My panasonic vortex, when in cleaning mode, does not dry and does not **** the water back into the holding tank


Probably due to wire being cut inside cleaner. My cleaning system charges, and the indicator lights for cleaning and charging light up, but I don't believe water is flushed through system. Took apart and found broken wire. Working to replace wire and reassemble, but having issues with disassembly so I can replace wire.
Nice razors, but not as durable as the older models.

My Bissell ProHeat 2x is pouring water out of the bottom anytime it's turned on. I had it in the shop for no water, took it back again for the same problem, took it back again because it had no suction,...


Took the unit apart and discovered my heater had small pinholes in the metal and they had put in silicone, instead of a gasket, which didn't seal. So much for the place I took it to "saving" my heater for me. I repaired it myself by getting a few o-rings and a seal from the hardware store. As for the "holes" in the bottom - a little marine fixative.

There's still water in it. You'll need to take the battery out and let it dry another two days. I got my phone wet one time and it took a week before it worked again.
