if you could open the keypads, you can clean the surface of the defective key. probably some tea residue builds up on the key and causes it to malfunction. you can search on utube on how to open your laptop keypads.
Short answer: No.
Long answer: Your phone has water damage. Warranty is void if your phone has water damage. Since you KNOW you've dropped it in tea, you should consider it a lost cause and move on.
For others - if you do something similar (dropped in water): Immediately turn it off. Take the battery out, then proceed to completely dismantle the whole phone. I have in the past used kleenex paper to tuck into places I can't dismantle, to get the water out, but they usually say to dismantle it, then let it completely air dry. It may take a week. If it, after it's completely dry, still works, then maybe you got lucky, and maybe it'll start acting up in a while, problem by problem as the electronics corrode inside the phone. I have heard of phones surviving water damage with only minor problems, but it's rare.
Try this: turn off the phone & let it charge for 48hours, that will give it enough time for the electricity to dry out the internal circuitry in the phone and possibly fix your internal antennae problem...if that doesn't work then your phone's tea bath may have shorted the antennae.
