Acer Aspire 5610 - one key does not work

My new Acer Aspire had coffee spilled on it. We got it wiped off as best we could, but for two days one key was stuck. Finally got that fixed, but now the End key does not work. How do these keys work to make contact so the key is recognized as pressed? I have removed the key cap and can't see anything under the little wishbone type holder? How can I test the electrical contacts of that key? And how to clean it?

Laptop keyboard are semi-sealed circuit boards. This means that liquid can get into the contacts and can not be cleaned. Depending on how much liquid was spilled on the keyboard chances are that the liquid has seeped around the edges of the keyboard and down onto the mainboard of the laptop. My first suggestion would be to keep the laptop turned off until you can remove the keyboard and check for liquid damage to the mainboard. If there is no damage to the mainboard I would suggest buying a new keyboard before turning the computer back on as any shorts caused by the liquid damage on the keyboard can cause damage to the keyboard controller circuit on the mainboard.

About 2 weeks ago I spilled coffee on the laptop of my Acer Aspire 255D laptop/notebook and quickly turned it over to get liquid out and dried it, wiped it, etc. I have let it dry out and it turns on but...


Check if it has still warranty and if it is covered by the warranty agreement. The circuit maybe moist and will not function due to the moisture wipe it all off then check if all connections are intact. try each key out.

Multimedia keys not working on acer aspire 5610z do i need a driver, where can i download it?


If you mean by multimedia keys the buttons that allow you to bring up media player and skip tracks and stuff then I think I had this problem too.
I wiped my 5610z but only installed only the windows software.This stopped the keys from working. However when I then used the factory restore disk instead, this re-installed windows and also made the keys work again.

So your best bet is to create a factoryrestore disk. You can download the software to do so online :) its called Acer eRecovery

Sticky keyboard


You can carefully take off the keys and pop them back on. Use alcohol to wipe up any stickiness.

Where can I get laptop key?


Ebay is the best place, or a small computer shop that sells used laptops. On Ebay there are several vendors that sell individual keys, however, you may be able to get a good deal on an entire keyboard, then you will have many keys for future mishaps.
