Power down, remove battery, blow the keyboard with compressed air from a can you get at an office supply store. Do not spray any liquid cleaner of any kind directly on the board, spray a cleaning solution on a microfibre towel but do not saturate it, gently run the towel up and across the keys, when you are finished cleaning, blow the keyboard dry with more air. If you are satisfied of the dryness of the board, re-install the battery and power it up.

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.

Keypad seizing..when ever i want to type,some of the keypad hang and i need to hit the letters several times.


It seems that keyboard has started to malfunction.. it happens after some time.. If possible replace the keyboard.. Get a new one from the marke.

In the mean time you can try cleaning the keyboard once, so that if dust on any other dirt is affecting the performance, you can overcome that..

Use a blower to clean that..

Spilled coke on my keyboard, how do we clean it


Hi

Thank you for your query

Best thing would be to get a damp cloth and simply wipe over the keyboard when the laptop is switched off, this will remove the stickyness.

Please ensure when wiping that no water travels into the keyboard which may cause you problems

How to clean spill out of keyboard on hp pavilion dv7 1245dx


Best thing to do is to take the keyboard out of the laptop. There is usually a top cover above the keyboard that needs to come off. Then there is some screws holding in the keyboard, unscrew those and then unhook the ribbon part of the keyboard off of the motherboard.

Then at that point take a paper towel or washcloth with glass cleaner and clean all around where the spillage is.

Also clean off the keyboard is well and let it sit for a day so it can dry out.

Then put the keyboard back and see if the keyboard is working properly, if not then you'll need to replace it.

Keyboard not responding after food spill and clean up


what type of food spill and how did you clean it affects the keyboard. What type of keyboard is it? Is a separate keyboard like for a desktop or is it on a laptop? for desktops, quickly turn the keyboard upside down to prevent fluids going further into the keys. After food spill, use a can of 'air'. Use short blasts to help blow out and dry any moisture out-at the same time, be sure to have the keyboard with keys facing down. for laptops, almost same-turn entire laptop upside down to allow fluids to escape. Be careful not to let the fluids come in contact with screen. Hope you have done some of this. If it doesnt work, you may need to replace the desktop keyboard and for laptops-take to repair shop for internal cleaning. Hope this helps

Function key locked on. Have to press fn key to use normal characters.


did you spill something on the board? If so, you won't fix that, you'll need a new board. If not, dismantle it and adjust the rubber underlayment. Clean it good. If you did spill something , don't bother trying to clean it. You'll find you wasted your time.

My return key is not functioning on my apple keyboard.


Buy a new keyboard. They are cheap. One possible solution is to allow the keyboard to thoroughly dry and try it. You can pry up the key and look and see if it needs to be dusted out with some air, or cleaned of whatever was spilled on it. Perhaps alcohol on a Qtip on the moving parts. Not sure what "something" splashed on it. Root beer? Water? Big difference. I would visually inspect, try to dust, then clean with alcohol. Let it dry thoroughly and give it a shot. Short course, buy a new monitor. Good luck.

Take it to the closest computer repair shop... And have them clean your laptop... Maybe the coke short circuited something on the board, and now it doesn't work ...

Laptop Cleaning/Repair


That is something that you should not attempt .. Because most likely you will need to replace the keyboard...
If they are just not working because they are Sticking or Stuck, you can repair this by yourself....you can remove the keyboard and clean it, also checking the ribbon cable that goes from the keyboard to the motherboard... look for any burn spots near the keyboard plug connection, chances are that just simply replacing the keyboard would fix it ..
You also will need the entire laptop taken apart to see if the "drink" spilled onto other parts, or worse... the motherboard...
