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

When I type a letter it sticks and keep typing the same letter.


Keyboards sit out exposed to all kinds of debris. Dust, ashes and so on can settle into the area around the keys and cause problems. Turning the keyboard upside down and patting it on the backside might help. You'll be amazed at what comes out. A can of compressed air might also do the trick but again, upside down.
Keyboards are cheap and they really aren't worth fixing. But if it becomes too frustrating, and it's not a wireless keyboard, you might try putting it in the dishwasher upside down. This is a last resort when you've given up and are ready to buy a new keyboard. And I'd only do this if someone spilled something on it.
If it doesn't work now, this won't make it work any less. Well, actually, it could. LOL
Good luck.

Hp G62 dead after spill


In most cases, you are in a position where you may need to return it to HP for repair.

There is one thing you can try, but it takes a very gentle hand and touch: use something like Fantastic, or a more eco-friendly spray solution. Gently spray the key board all over where the spill went, which
means probably the whole keyboard.

Let it sit a few minutes, then turn it upside down on paper towels and let it drain.

Then, gently spray it again with plain water and let it sit upside down on more paper towels. Allow it to drain for a long time, something like a day or more.

When you turn the laptop right side up, you may find the keyboard fully functional again. But there is no guarantee. This works mostly on keyboards attached to desktop computers, not integrated into laptops.

The concept is the same - cleanse the keyboard, flush it, and allow it plenty of time to dry. Remember, liquid and electricity, no matter how low voltage, like a keyboard, are not friendly. If you try to use it before it is completely dry, you can fry more than just the keyboard.

It's possible to help it along with a gentle application of a hair blower, but not until after the two cleanings, and at least a day upside down on paper towels.

Good luck.

Cheers!

Full glass of water spilled on my iTouch keyboard. Have tried a fan on it for over 24 hrs and still nothing. Can you help?


Hello,

Unfortunately some things don't mix (like electronics and water). You can try to dry it out more, let it sit upside down. Make sure you take the batteries out if you haven't already. If that doesn't work you will most likely need to replace it.

Seveal keys stick


On mine I have a couple of keys that stick To unstick them turn thekeyboard upside down and then knock on it just like you are knocking on a door. That pops the leys loose. do not try to pry them loose.

Past that you need to take the leyboard apart and clean. If you have spilled something you have to clean or replace.

My shift buttons are not working. sometimes they


More than likely, someone spilled food or drink in the keyboard. Take the keyboard turn it upside down and shake vigoriously. You'll be suprised of the stuff that comes out. If that doesn't do it, purchase a can of air, and turn the keyboard on it's side or slightly upside down so the stuff can fall out of it, and give it a good blow (with the can of air).

Keyboard not responding after food spill and clean up


what type of food spill and how did you clean it affects the keyboard. What type of keyboard is it? Is a separate keyboard like for a desktop or is it on a laptop? for desktops, quickly turn the keyboard upside down to prevent fluids going further into the keys. After food spill, use a can of 'air'. Use short blasts to help blow out and dry any moisture out-at the same time, be sure to have the keyboard with keys facing down. for laptops, almost same-turn entire laptop upside down to allow fluids to escape. Be careful not to let the fluids come in contact with screen. Hope you have done some of this. If it doesnt work, you may need to replace the desktop keyboard and for laptops-take to repair shop for internal cleaning. Hope this helps

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

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.

Keys not working!!!


got something stuck under the keyboard keys? Turn the keyboard upside down and give it a good shake.

Check the connection in the back of your PC - make sure none of the pins are bent if it isn't USB.
