Coffee??? did it have creme and sugar??

reason is the creme and sugar tends to stick the the plastic of the key board

i would just buy a new keyboard, but if you are hard up for money, then you could take it apart. and wash all the inside with hot water and soap. i hope none of the sugar or creme corroded some of the touch pad sensors. but washing it in soap and water(perferred more than luke warm water). wash all component and then air dry with a hair dryer or blown clean with compressed air and let sit around for a while you are looking about a days work.

so practically its better to buy another one, but then again, if you want to know how keyboard work this is your opportunity.

WASH ALL PLASTIC PIECES be careful not to break anything you might have to clean the touch pad sensor careful as they break easily if you dont what you are doing.

then you can reassemble all the pieces and see if it works. if it doesnt then the emprom chip probably got fried.


Good luck

Wired and onscreen keyboard space bar doesnt work


Keyboards are cheap. If you need to use this one then you will need to carefully pop the spacebar key out, turn the keyboard upside down and give it a good shake. You will see a ton of junk fall out ;)

How to Clean Your Keyboard


<p><b><span>For Desktop Computer:-</span></b><br /> <p><span>The dust that accumulates in a work environment will get inside your keyboard. While this usually does not create a problem for your keyboard, it is a good idea that you clean it out from time to time. Here's how:</span><br /> <p><span>1. Disconnect the keyboard from your computer CPU.<br /> 2. Turn the keyboard upside down and over a trash can and gently shake the keyboard to remove dirt from between the keys. It is ok to give the keyboard a few slaps on its back side to jar loose any foreign material inside. Also, you can give it a few short blasts of compressed air to help remove debris. <br /> 3. You can moisten a soft cloth with a gentle cleaning agent to clean between the keys if you like.<br /> 4. Reconnect the dry keyboard.</span><br /> <p><b><span>For Laptop Computer:-</span></b><br /> <p><span>Laptop's keyboards are designed to last a very long time and as long as you don't spill liquid in to it, it should give you many years of worry free operation. You can clean the keyboard by using a very mild cleaner applied to a soft cloth or by cotton. Don't spray the cleaning agent directly on to the keyboard. Gently run the cloth or swab between the keys until clean. </span><br />

Keyboard dont type


No matter how careful you may be, knocking a cup of coffee or spilling a glass of soda over your keyboard may happen. This does not, however, mean the end of your keyboard. If you act quickly, you may be able to fix your wet keyboard to avoid any corrosion of its electronic components or any short circuit which might render it unusable. By following a few recommendations, you should be able to fix your wet computer keyboard.

Unplug the keyboard from your computer immediately after the spill to avoid any corrosion or short circuit. If you spilled water over your laptop's keyboard, turn your computer off by clicking on "Shut Down" on "Turn Off" in the start menu, unplug the power supply and remove the battery. Turn the keyboard upside down and shake it to remove most of the water from it. Take a hair dryer and set it to its lowest temperature setting. Use it to dry any water which might remain under your keyboard's keys. Wait at least 12 hours before plugging your keyboard into your computer again. If your computer is a laptop, wait 12 hours before turning it on again. For Other Liquids Disconnect the keyboard from your computer immediately after the spill to avoid any short circuit or corrosion. Turn your computer off by selecting "Shut Down" or "Turn Off" in the start menu, remove the battery and disconnect the power supply. Place paper towels on a table, turn the keyboard upside down and shake it over them to allow most of the liquid to fall down. Take a few clean paper towels and wipe the liquid off your keyboard's keys. To clean between the keys, you can also use cotton swabs with just a little bit of water. If the liquid which you spilled over your keyboard contained a high amount of sugar, such as soda or sugared coffee, you might have to remove some of your keyboard's keys to clean the surface under the keys with paper towels or swabs. You can do so by lifting them gently with a screwdriver or by using a key remover, which you can find in some IT stores. Wait at least 12 hours before using your keyboard again. If your computer is a laptop, wait the same length of time before turning it on again.

short of replacing the keyboard, there is not much you can do. If not killer expensive, then you could at your own risk put isopropal alcohol inside the tray - move around and then turn upside down. this will be easier on the electronics and may dissolve the liquid depending on what it is. If the viscocity is too high, then it wont work but worth a try.

Caps lock comes on randomly and tabs across the page too.

My keyboard will not work


Hi,

Keyboard Is Dirty:

Keyboards should be cleaned with "spray-n-wipe" cleaner and a cloth or tissue on a monthly basis. Ensure that computer is not powered up while cleaning the keyboard. Compressed air can also be used to clean between the keyboard keys. Another tip: clean the keys with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol.

"Keyboard Not Found" Message:

Your keyboard is not plugged into the computer securely. Unplug it and plug it back in and the problem should go away. If this doesn't work, follow procedure: "Computer isn't taking inputs from keyboard" (below).

Key Is Stuck:

1. If a key does not work or is stuck in the down position, you may try to remove it with a CPU "chip puller" tool. These simple "L" shaped tools are great at pulling out keys. Once you've pulled out the stuck key, you can try to stretch the spring to "reanimate" its action.

Computer Isn't Taking Inputs From Keyboard

1. Is keyboard connected to computer? Ensure that the keyboard is plugged into the keyboard jack and not into the mouse jack. If the keyboard was unplugged, plug it back in and reboot the computer.

2. If the keyboard still doesn't work on boot-up, power down the computer and try to borrow a friend's known-good keyboard for troubleshooting. Plug the new keyboard up and boot up the computer. If the new keyboard works, the old keyboard is bad and needs to be replaced.

3. If the known-good keyboard doesn't work, check your BIOS to make sure it sees the keyboard. It should say, "installed." If the BIOS recognizes the keyboard, then you probably have a bad keyboard port.

I Plugged Keyboard Into Mouse Port

1. Many mice and keyboards today use a PS/2 connector
. If you plugged your keyboard into the mouse port (or viceversa), follow steps 2 and 3.

2. Shut down the computer and plug the keyboard into the keyboard port. The keyboard port is usually marked with a "keyboard" symbol. Plug the mouse into the mouse port (usually marked with a mouse symbol).

3. Reboot the computer; the keyboard should work now. If keyboard doesn't work, check your BIOS to make sure the BIOS recognizes the keyboard. You should see the words, "installed" or "enabled" under the keyboard.

4. If the BIOS recognizes the keyboard but it still doesn't work, you may have a bad keyboard port.

I Spilled a drink on my keyboard!

1. If you spill any liquid in the keyboard, turn it upside down ASAP. Drain all the water out of the keyboard, shaking it if necessary. If you've spilled water into the keyboard, just let it dry. You may use a hair dryer to dry out area under the keys (remember, too much heat and you could damage the electrical components).

2. If you've spilled a soda into the keyboard, completely rinse it in warm water. No soap please! You may use a hair dryer at this point or just let it dry for 2 days. Ensure the keyboard is perfectly DRY before you attempt to use it again. Don't plug a wet keyboard into electrical equipment. Think safety.

5. If the keyboard still doesn't work, replace the keyboard.

bad news... you can try and dry it some more in warm and dry condition more another day or two... open up whatever compartment you can and see if there's any moisture... Gently blow dry (not to close) and try again. with todays laptop price, it may not be worth to repair.. probably your hard drive is safe though. worst case: salvage the hard drive and transfer the data - you can event turn it into a portable drive.

Di novo keyboard repair


No18ray,
You should be able to obtain any USB Bluetooth dongle to replace the OEM Logitech one that failed. You might want to verify that the transmitter is the problem before replacing it though (if you haven't already of course). Replacing one with and after market/generic one is relatively inexpensive though.
Good Luck.
