Replacing the keyboard is an easy fix ,
just order one on ebay ,
so much of the keyboard has little nooks and parts that
even if you take it out and wash and dry it the paste will still be present.
just search for a pavilion dv8000 keyboard
they are around 40 including shipping.

My kids accidentally spilled orange juice on my laptop. It continue to work for a little but now the screen is black. What can I do?


Sugar is the worst. If you had immediately unplugged and removed battery you may have had a chance. Once sugary drinks get in it's almost a death sentence for electronic devices. If it's valuable take it to a Qualified Computer Tech, if not right it off as a learning moment. If you want, this is a detailed explaination: http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/askjack/2012/jul/05/drink-spilled-on-laptop

Spill on key board and now the letters are not typing


If you spilled water then shut off the laptop NOW and let it dry out for about 3 days. If you spilled soda or juice then you will probably need to have the keyboard replace. Hopefully the liquid did not get to the motherboard or then you might have to have that replaced also.

Juice spilled on dell laptop,the problem is when i press certain keys 3 or 4 letters apear,it is the same with a new keyboard


If that happens with a new keyboard then the mother board is faulty and a replacement laptop is on the horizon. What happens with an external (USB) keyboard?
Hope this helps.

Some keys not working. using onscreen keyboard help


Did you or previous owner spill something like orange juice in it previously? Did you try it on someone else's computer? If it still behaves the same there you will probably have to get anothere keyboard. You can usually pick them up for next to nothing in thrift stores or discount stores.

Spilled juice on my H P Pavilion laptop keyboard, keyboard is not working at all. Please help!


Do you have an HP Accidental Damage extended warranty? If you do, you can call HP's tech support and get it fixed/replaced.

If you don't have the extra warranty, you can try to carefully pop the keyboard keys off and carefully clean underneath as the contacts below the keys are possibly stuck in the down position.

You may have to take it to a service centre and have a technician open up the laptop and see if it can be cleaned and try to "unstuck" the keyboard keys.

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.
