Question about Acer Computers & Internet

I have an Acer Aspire 7200 and my keyboard is fairly screwed up from spill damage. I was hoping to manually change it myself, but I don't know where to start taking parts apart. I have access to the memory compartment, but how do I access the keyboard from there?

Hello,

There are screws accessed from the bottom of your laptop, and in most cases labeled as keyboard, if not, start unscrewing these. Oh, as you begin to remove the keyboard and palm rest do not be too surprised if you hear large sounding snaps, this is normal. Once you begin lifting the top off carefully, you will see a thin mylar ribbon cable or two. You will want to download a users manual on servicing your internal components as there is a specific way to remove these ribbon cables. Usually you squeeze both ends of the female receptacle together and the cable will come loose. Same for reattaching it later. Once, you do have it off however, survey the internal area of your laptop for evidence of the spill and clean it up with 99% or pure alcohol from a hardware store (oh, and of course do this with external power disconnected and the battery out). Next, you may be able to salvage your keyboard by rinsing it down with electronic parts cleaner. It may take more than one can to do this, but you may find that this fixes your stuck keys and you do not have a need to replace it.

I'm hear to assist you further if you have any other questions just comment back and or click on the Ask Me icon.

Best Regards and Good Luck,

I spilled liquid on my Acer Aspire One netbook, and now some keys don't work on the keyboard. How do I fix this problem?


Below is the link to the service and repair guide. Change out the keyboard...they do not do well with spills. They are really just one big circuit board. Buy one cheap on Ebay and change it out following the guide below.

Sounds to be you just got a faulty keyboard from HongKong, if your old keyboard works except the the Z and the new keyboard works only with function keys, then it sounds to be that the new keyboard is not ment for your laptop. if anything you should of had the same problems as your old keyboard. try using a USB keyboard.

How do I physically replace the keyboard on my Acer Aspire 5920?


If the keyboard is malfunctioning due to factory fault, you can request a warranty repair from Acer depending on the status of the warranty.

If keys have fallen off or if the damage was caused by a liquid spill, the warranty option doesn't apply.

If you already have the keyboard, you should be able to find repair documentation on Acer's site.

There should be several screws on the back of the laptop. A few of them might have an icon near them that indicates the purpose of the screw. If you see any icons that resemble a keyboard, you should take those screws out. Then you will be able to take the keyboard out and replace it. Remember to be gentle during this process as the motherboard will be temporarily exposed.

More than likely the pop has gotten inside your unit. you would have to open the unit, disconnect your keyboard, clean the leads and connectors to the keyboard. If the unit was on when this happened the mb may have shorted in which you would need a new kb.

Acer Aspire 5610 - one key does not work


Laptop keyboard are semi-sealed circuit boards. This means that liquid can get into the contacts and can not be cleaned. Depending on how much liquid was spilled on the keyboard chances are that the liquid has seeped around the edges of the keyboard and down onto the mainboard of the laptop. My first suggestion would be to keep the laptop turned off until you can remove the keyboard and check for liquid damage to the mainboard. If there is no damage to the mainboard I would suggest buying a new keyboard before turning the computer back on as any shorts caused by the liquid damage on the keyboard can cause damage to the keyboard controller circuit on the mainboard.
