Hello, Im having problem with my toshiba keyboard. For example when I press the space bar it writes / instead of do the space, or when I press v it writes 4. What can I do?

1. You most probably have switched on 'Num Lock' mode on your keyboard. Tty to switch back to the 'normal' mode by pressing 'Num Lock' (NumLK or similar) key or Fn+NumLock (depends on your notebook/keyboard model). In the Num Lock mode on the many notebook keyboards pressing U (not V) will produce 4 and / is located near the space, so may be you keyboard have mapped space key to / sign in the Num Lock mode or you just mistyping (you didn't specified the particular model which is mandatory for such a questions).

2. Some transient software or hardware failure. Try to switch your notebook off then on. Next try to fully cut off power - take off PSU connector and take off the battery from the compartment, then take them back.

3. If above advices will not help, thus your keyboard seems to be some kind damaged. If this is the case, most probable reason is internal line short circuit by the liquid (water, etc), leaked to the keyboard. You can order a new/used keyboard from store/ebay or try to fix yours. Some notebook keyboard (pulled off from the compartment - look for service manual or video for your model) are relatively easy to disassemble, and clean mechanical parts and the button matrix films with alcohol or some similar solvent to to clean off short circuiting oxides and eliminate issues.

Most notebook and some desktop keyboards are difficult to disassemble and assemble back due to the multiple (decades) plastic rivets used to assembly all the layers together. Once you disassemble and separate layers to clean, thus You shall restore rivets some way upon the back assembly (new rivets, soldering iron or some glue). On other hand the desktop keyboards are easy to disassembly/assembly and clean in most cases. Most of them are assembled with a few decades of the standard screws.

Next problem you can experience upon disassembly is a pads and traces corrosion. That's why any electronic devices should be powered off immediately, then disassembled and cleaned ASAP once the liquid leakage occurred. Drying is not enough solution and cannot guarantee some oxides didn't covered parts inside will not [partially] short circuit and/or corrode these parts especially upon current will flow again. Moreover this will most probably occur upon a time once liquid reached some important device components inside. Fixation could not be done later in some cases once corrosion have fully destroyed some components. Damaged traces and pads on the keyboard films which made of some conducting composite with aluminium or graphite powder, could be fixed with a special expensive conductive adhesive (glue). Being an experienced electronic engineer, I have successfully fixed a few boards, but this work is very precision, complicated and time consuming (lost a few hours for every case and was forced to asm/disasm tens of times to precisely sharpen pad layers).

It got wet and now wont turn on. It was diet soda that sprung a leak in my pocketbook. I grabbed cell phone first and camera second but while not immersed it probably did get inside. I do get a quick turn...


hmmm... stop turning it on yet.. let it dry for maybe 24~48 hours then try to turn it on. If problem persists, contact your home support from this LINK.

I hope this works for you. Kindly reply for further assistance. Good Luck!
Thanks for using Fixya!

Friday night, rootbeer spilled in my bag and all over my camera. Saturday morning, I realized the tragedy, and immediately took out the SD card/battery and let it sit in a bowl of rice. Sunday afternoon,...

I'm sorry, but once you spill liquid on an electronic product you can kiss it good bye. Especially liquid with sugar or salt content. These products are highly corrosive and develop permanent damage to a circuit board. You may not see the results of the damage until later since corrosion develops in time.

My camera suddenly stopped working,inspite of placing new battery cells.On switching the indicator red light glows once &stops

Check if the battery is having the right voltage, if it is rechargeble type , then recharge the new cells before being used the first time.
If the battery was charged then it is possible that the camera has problems in the controller board.
In ssuch case contact HP than to tamper upon as it is not a DIY job.

Sony Digital Camera got dunked

sorry to say that once the camera comes in deep water , all parts get rusty and specially the ccd becomes faulty , u can still check some solutions

1. Check the batteries replace them , see the terminals i mean contacts where the batteries remain check for rusty contacts if there is some rust try removing it with some liquid used to remove rust.

2. if u have power supply like adapter try it on that see if power comes on..

3. check out the memory card is it faulty or got rusty replace it . some cameras dont power up when card is faulty.

4. u can get its circuit board washed buy some local technician in ur area try it there bcoz if u go to sony they will charge u more and return it or u can atleast get a quote from them if they diagnose ur problem free , but in this case i dont think that much is left bcoz once these parts getts rust they no more work like IC chips transistors, very small parts in there .

pls check the solutions and rate me if u find me helpful

Kodak p850-turns off and on

Try using a liquid contact cleaner. I read about this fix on another site, worked great for me.
A product called DeoxIT in the U.S. is what was suggested, I am in Canada and can't get that here so I picked up a product from a company called NexxTech. Just a liquid contact cleaner.
Take out the battery of the camera. Put a few small drops of the contact cleaner on the power button and let it drip down into the switch. Rotate the on/off switch back and forth 5-10 times, put the battery back in and Voila! Fixed!
No more random on/off irritations, camera works just like it did before the problem arose a few weeks ago.
It worked great for me.
Good Luck!

Camera dropped - does not turn on

Check out Nikon support. My guess is no parts or a very expensive repair bill.
