SOURCE: Spilled wine in keyboard

it really depends, on the logitech stuff they have the accidental spill holes in the bottom so liquid doesn't pool but there is a possibility that it could have saturated the board and ruinied the internals, just try to dry it out as best you can and hope for the best

SOURCE: kid spilled soda now keyboard will not type

Hi There !!

Thank you for choosing Fixya. The chances are rare that it would work, because liquid may have done damage to the integrated circuit.

But we can give it a try:

What you will need:

  • lint free cloth.
  • dry cloth or duster.
  • suitable cleaning fluid (isopropyl alcohol).
  • cotton buds.
  • Can of compressed air or vacuum cleaner.
  • Flat tip screwdriver (optional for thorough clean).
Shutdown your PC and remove the mains plug, unplug the keyboard(remember where it was plugged in) and hold it upside down to releaseany debris from inbetween the keys.

This is where the patience comes in, make a note ofthe position of all the keys or you will have trouble putting them backcorrectly, alternatively just remove the letter keys A - Z from the keyboard (which is where the most of the dust/debris will be) and refer to fig 1.4 as a reference to put them back.

All the keys can be removed although the larger keys (space bar, enterkey, shift keys, backspace, caps lock, etc) can be difficult to putback so you might avoid removing them.

Remove the keys using the screwdriver, ease the screwdriver under the key and gently lift the key top off (see fig 1.3).

note: don't forget to make a note of their position !! remove-key-cap.jpg keyboard-layout.gifWhen you have removed all the keys (except any keys youwish to avoid) use the compressed air (or vacuum cleaner) to remove anydust and debris from inside the keyboard.

Now is a good time to give the keys a proper clean, for bestresults clean each one individually (the patience thing again) with thecloth and cleaning fluid, when clean, wipe them over with the drycloth.

Before replacing the keys, take your lint free cloth anddampen it with your cleaning fluid (don't put the liquid directly onthe keyboard), give the surface of the keyboard a good wipe overensuring to clean as much as possible any keys that you haven'tremoved.

When the keyboard is nice and clean replace the keys according to your notes or if you have just removed the letter keys use fig 1.4 as a guide, to put the keys back on position the key in place and press gently but firmly until it clicks home.

After replacing all the keys give the keyboard a quick wipe over with your dry cloth and you have a nice clean keyboard.

Hope this will help !

Regard's

Sony via o my keyboard is not working.


Keyboard failures on a laptop are typically a result of a spill or food accidently spilled between the keys. Temporarily you may be able to plug in an external USB keyboard to use the laptop. To repair a keyboard requires partially taking the laptop apart. You may or may not want to do this depending on how you feel about that kind of operation. If you decide you want to do it, here's a link to doing the operation:

Be careful, be gentle and you should have no trouble with it! Best of luck!

The w key on my sony vaio laptop isn't working hen you press it, but w's constantly come out as if it is being held down


The keyboard is probably faulty and this is not generally a repairable item. Did you spill any liquid on it? If so, giving it a clean might help. Remove the keyboard from the laptop to make it easier and avoid possible damage to the laptop. Make sure the power is disconnected and the battery is removed before removing the keyboard.
If cleaning does not work then you will have to replace the keyboard.

Hi,
Did you or anyone else spilled anything on them? Do you have a pet that may stepped on your keyboard?
What you can do is to take out on of the problematic keys. Disconnect from power and use a small ruler to pop the key out. See if anything is under there. Maybe hair or food. Do not shake your laptop as this can lead to other problems. Get a dry cloth and clean the key base and underneath the key. Reinsert the key and try it again. If this works do the same for the other keys.

Spilled small amount of liquid on it now it does not work. Looking for possible solution, ie motherboard.


remove the battery open up the notebook then spray rubbing alcohol all over the computer keyboard and, especially where you spilled liquid; really soak it; wait 24 hours for it to dry; and, try to turn it on with the power supply connected
