Juice on keyboard - Acer Aspire 5633WLMi

Hi,

I spilt fresh orange on my keyboard last night, cleaned it up and it seemed to be okay but thismorning I am trying to use it and the underneath of the keys is really sticky. I've looked everywhere for a manual that tells me if and how the keys come off so that I can clean underneath but I can't find anything and don't want to just try taking one off and end up breaking it even more!

This is a toughie. I had a Sony Vaio last year which popped a key off one day, and I never could get it popped back in. you might try it with one key, but that wouldn't guarantee that another wouldnt break. Call Acer telephone support (if you go online for support, they don't even list their telephone number, but try to trick you into thinking you have to use their hair-tearing lousy self-diagnosing troubleshooting programs online, which are worse than useless). If you get a rep who won't help you, demand to speak to a supervisor. Acer customer support is 800 816-2237, 8 to 5:30==not certain if they are open weekends. Good luck.

Hi, from what you are describing it seems like it is not power related, it could be overheating problem, the best thing you can do is to clean the airways in the bottom of your laptop especially under the fan with a compressed air can, you can find the air can in any electronics store just follow the instructions on the can and be carefull not to break the fan fins with lots of air presser, start slow and clean all air ways then give the computer a try... hope that helps

Some liquid was spilt on the key board an the side of my acer aspire one notebook, how do i disasemble and clean it so i can get it back to working, or is that even possible?


You can remove the keyboard and clean any liquid under it. ( The keyboard is one-piece ... and you may not be able to clean easily under each key.)
Review the first few steps to "upgrade the RAM" ... it describes how to remove the keyboard... http://forums.redflagdeals.com/acer-aspire-one-upgrades-how-609546/

Check out the series of pictures (at least the 1st 3) and accompanying instructions to do this ... http://s344.photobucket.com/albums/p322/bb320/

I have an acer aspire 5517 model spilt a beer in it,now of course some of the key are really sticky,when i try to enter my passwod i get several letters appearing with one key push,how do i remove keyboard...


Here you go: http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/Manuals/acer/2009/ServiceGuides/SG_Aspire_5517_09172009.pdf
You may want to just replace the keyboard since they only cost in the $30 range. Do a google search on acer aspire 5517 keyboard.
The beer might have gotten into the motherboard which could be a real problem. Good luck.

My laptop keyboard does no work so i cant get past the password on my laptop


is this a bootup password that comes up right away when the power is turned on? If so - then the keyboard, mainboard or the flex cable connecting the keyboard to the mainboard is faulty.

I would reconnect the keyboard and clean the flex cable and its connector, I've found sand inside two laptops so far that had keyboard issues... cleaning the flex cable and the connector solved the issue in those cases.

If that doesn't help, you can try another keyboard or a usb keyboard, if both don't work then the issue is either the keyboard connector or the mainboard is failing, which isn't uncommon for acer, I have a 3000 series laptop that has the same problem - keyboard doesn't work, usb doesn't work either.

Outside of warranty are you?

Tea spilt on Laptop


If you can put up with the sticky keys and they still work then it is OK.
Otherwise you need to replace the keyboard.
