Take the keyboard and run water over it and take it apart and let the component dry out (while it is not connected to the computer).

I had a mechanic tell me that this is what he did to a keyboard that was part of an automobile engine analysis Bear Ace machine at Sears.

He said that someone spilled a cup of coffee on it and it wouldn't work.

Good luck on this repair of a coffee stained keyboard.

Broken O-ring floating in water reservoir. Where does it go? Should I replace it? No leaks anywhere. Machine works fine otherwise


The o-ring you found floating goes around the black circle of plastic that surrounds the water inlet valve at the bottom of the inside of the reservoir. It's only used to create a seal when you're using the attachable water filter. If you're not using the attachable water filter, you don't need to replace the o-ring.

Copier aficio 450 developer unit plastic strip at both end of magnetic rolleris are damage... what will be the best replacement for it..plz help...becuz my developer unit is spilling a lot of toner....


Hello, hope this helps. I believe you are referring to the seals [a clear mylar] placed at each end of the developer roller to prevent developer from spilling out of the ends.The part numbers are A2323132 (rear seal) and A2323131( front seal). I just checked the Ricoh website and it appears they don't sell to the public. I can recommend my company which is Advanced Office Systems in Knoxville Tennessee. I have know idea what those dang things cost but after shipping and a whole lotta handling, $20 would would not shock me. I have used electrical tape to solve this problem. To make a seal, cut a piece of tape that overlaps the dev roller by about an inch at both ends. Cut a second piece of tape that when turned "sticky side to sticky side" against the first piece can provide a smooth "seal" against the dev roller while the remaining sticky ends of the first piece attach to the CLEANED plastic housing of the developer unit. or call 1.865.966.0770 to purchase the seals from Advanced Office Systems. Have a good one...

The "i" key failed after a coffee spill. want to replace keyboard


No need to replace keyboard. If it really failed than none of the keys would work. Unplug it, turn it upside down, unscrew all the screws, open it up, clean top of he contact board with cloth dipped in alcohol. You can wash plastic parts and membrane manually in warm water with dish washing detergent. After that, wrap it in towel to dry. You can use a hair dryer but from a distance. Drying can take hours unless you work in it. Than just put all back together and screw back the screws. Plug in keyboard.

My senseo is leaking water more than brewing coffee


The leaking out onto the counter is coming from the reservoir. I had the same problem and was about to throw my Senseo out. Here's how to fix it.
When you put the reservoir back onto the Senseo the bottom fits into a hole that is surrounded by a rubber seal. The seal appears to be attached to the bottom side of the plastic shelf that the reservoir sits on. The problem is that the seal has pulled partly away from the plastic surface to which it is attached allowing water to leak onto the counter. Put a little glob of clear silicone sealer (like you use around glass) onto the end of your little finger and work that along the upper edge of the seal where it meets the plastic shelf. You want to be sure you go all the way around and that you squeeze the sealant into the crack between the seal and the plastic. When you're finished, wipe off any excess and make sure that the inside edge of the seal (that fits around the nozzle from the reservoir) is free of any excess silicone. Let it dry for a day and you're ready to go. I did mine and it works great now. No more leaks.
