If you're lucky, the coffee did not penetrate into the key membranes. Remove the battery, then try rinsing the affected area with clean water the same way you spilled your coffee. That way the water will go into the same areas. If you try some upside-down-on-an-angle rinse, the water may not get into the sticky areas. Dry immediately using a hair dryer set on low/medium.

Chances are it's ruined, but a few minutes of rinsing and drying might save your keyboard. Not much to lose by trying.

How to stop continuous beeping by Philips se445 phone


Some cordless phones will give non stop beeps to indicate that the battery reached its lifespan and can no longer get fully charged. replace battery. If battery is okay, check for sticky key on keypad? You'll be surprise how often the keys you press get stuck in its seat - same thing happens to computer keyboards then the computer beeeeeeps and the user has no idea why. Always keep all phones off your desk when you having your coffee :) Can turn into a sticky mess if you spill :) You can clean your phone keypad with a quck dry solution available at computer shops as it is also used to clean between the keys of the computer keyboard. its called the "All purpose computer cleaning spray"

Hope this helps

enjoy:)

How to fix a laptop keyboard if you spill something on it


Okay, I will now try to explain how to fix a laptop keyboard if you spill something on it (juice, coffe,.....). Problems caused by this are sticky keys, some keys don't work,.....

First of all, don't panic! Turn off your computer immediately, and pull the battery out. Unscrew a couple of screws that are holding the keyboard, and remove carefully keybord out of a laptop. Removing the keyboard can be different, depending on the laptop model. When you remove keyboard, fill a bowl with a fresh water with a few drops of a mild detergent for washing the dishes (3-5 drops per 1 liter of water). Bowl should be bigger than the keyboard, so you can submerge keybord in water. When you submerge the keyboard, gently press all the buttons with your palm, doing this you allow water to enter inside and clean the keyboard from inside. After pressing buttons for about 10 minutes, change the water for a fresh one, this time clean water, without the detergent. Do this with just clean water 2-3 times, and when you finish, shower the keyboard, just to make sure it is washed properly and the detergent is gone. DON'T USE THE HAIR DRYER TO DRY THE KEYBOARD, AND DON'T PUT IT ON DIRECT SUN. Turn the keyboard upside down and put it on a towel and let it dry. It should be dry in about 6-8 days on a room temperature, so be patient. DON'T EVER wash the keyboard with alcohol or something like that.

This is very good way to fix the keyboard, i solved a great number of keyboards using this method.

Keys sticky on my pc keyboad


Depending on the keyboard, you may be able to remove the sticky keys to clean under them. This is typically caused by food or beverages being spilled into the keyboard.
If you can't clean the keyboard, or don't want too; hit Office Max or Staples. they typically have very cheap replacement keyboards.
If it is a laptop keyboard; you will have to find a replacement keyboard on EBay! or Amazaon.com by model number of the laptop.

Some of the keys dont work and CRTL is always press on.


Your Keyboard pad is full of dust or there is someliquid that spilled down the keyboard and the keys are now sticky. This is normally solved by opening up your laptop and have the keyboard pad cleaned entirely. Probably you need to get a computer techincian who is going to help you to strip up the computer and be able to clean the keybord. Make sure you remove the power adpter from the socket and that the laptop battery is removed. Use a smooth cotton cloth with a bit of benzene or methrated spirit when cleaning. Let the keyboard pad dry up for about 20minutes, ten re-connect everything as it was and you should be good.

It is near impossible to clean sticky keys, especially when you have spill sticky liquid on the keyboard.
The best solution is to replace the keyboard.
You can get a replacement keyboard from one of these WEB sites.

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.

Hi. I spilled coffee on keyboard ACER 9410 laptop. Now a couple of the keys do not work and screen jumps when I hit some keys on right side of keyboard. Can I replace the keyboard to fix the problem and...


I did the same thing. Here's what I did:
Took whole thing apart. Cleaned any coffee with q-tips dipped in water / paper towels. Removed the keyboard. Ran it through the dishwasher with no soap in it and heated dryer off of course.
I let it dry for a day and was bummed that now the whole keyboard stopped working. Well then 4 days later to my surprise / delight.. the whole thing started working again. New keyboards on ebay were also very reasonable. But mine still works perfectly after the dishwasher cleaning.

My laptop


I'll start by telling you that most of the time keyboards don't recover from a spill. With that said, clean it by using a 50/50 rubbing alcohol in a spray bottle. Remove the keyboard from the machine, and spray the alcohol into the keyboard generously. Shake out the excess or blow it out with air, then use paper towels to daub up the rest. Repeat this process two or three times, then let the keyboard dry for a good 24 hours. While you have the keyboard off check for any juice or sticky areas in the machine, and clean them with the alcohol and Q-tips. Let this dry well also. After drying put the keyboard back on and try it. If you notice any sticky keys after using it for a while, then take the sticky keys off and clean them individually with the alcohol and Q-tips.
