You will need to open it up and make sure all the liquid is cleaned out. There are several layers of plastic sheet with contacts printed on them, you will have shorted them out.
You would be better off buying a new keyboard, i have tryed to fix this problem myself, there are always a couple of keys that never work again

Spilt tea keyboard not working

Sorry, but if it was tea instead of plain water, your keyboard is F***ED. what you CAN try is removing all the keys, crossing your fingers, and covering it in rice(uncooked). Leave it like that overnight, but i wouldn't get my hopes up. also, be sure you remove the battery if it is wireless.

Spilt tea on the printer - some liquid has entered the led data window thanks for your help ger

It's a good idea to remove power and wait (a couple of houres) for the liquid to dry or just cold blow air into the printer.

Since you didn't specify brand and model, I must say that most modern printers display light through relayed plastic from main board.

Sugar is bad for any mechanism (e.g. button) so lets hope it didn't get around that area. If you have spilled a lot of tea and the printer is a laser, I do recommend for a qualified technician to take a look at it.

good luck

Ice tea spilt in digital camera

Once a camera has liquid damage to it, rice isn't going to help. The contacts and everything are ruined unfortunately. Not saying you can't try rice, go ahead, but it probably won't work. Good luck.

Tea spilt ok Thinkpad Keyboard

I'm sorry, but there are no alternatives, and you may have bigger issues than just the keyboard. If the tea seeped past the keyboard, and onto the motherboard, which is directly bellow the keyboard, then by trying to start it you may have fried the motherboard. You would be surprised how long it takes for a laptop to dry out, 6 hours is not near long enough. You will also want to clean it, the sugar in the tea can cause corrosion of the circuitry on the motherboard. I'm going to recommend that you take it in for a professional diagnostic and cleaning. This way you will know the exact extent of the damage.

My tea just spilt into the keyboard, can i fix it? I spilled tea with a little honey in it onto my keyboard last night. Initially it worked, then repeated a keystroke or two; now it isn't operable. Blue...

You could try removing the keys out of the keyboard and cleaning it with a damp cloth and a can of compressed air. If the tea hit the circuitry of the board though you may have to get a new one.
