Dear v1ndic8d,

Spilling juice on your laptop is not always the end of your laptop. The best you thing you can do is to order a new keyboard. Go to eBay and enter the model of your laptop plus the word "keyboard" and purchase a new one. Make sure you read the description and the language, etc. Replacing the keyboard itself is not that complicated either. You may very well be able to do it yourself. Return to this site when ready and we'll help you replace it.

Good luck.

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.

Got liquid spill on lap top keyboard, lap top works fine,but some keys do not work, any suggestions!!!


Hi there,

Almost every laptop keyboard ever produced (or so it would seem) is available new as a part on eBay. It's where I buy all mine. SInce you don't mention the model of laptop here, just got to ebay's main page and in the search box type your laptop model followed by the word "keyboard". Most of them there are around $10 while others range up to $25.

Keyboards are usually just about the quickest and easiest part to replace on a laptop.

Best Regards,

Marcus

My son has spilt coke on the laptop 1 key not working O


If you spill drinks on a keyboard, something is bound to break, and apparantly only the O key did... The only way to fix it is to get a new keyboard, I'm sorry. I hope this helps, Yannick.

Toshiba Equium Laptop keyboard not operating correctly


There has been a lot of talk around this computer lately about the same problem you are having. It has something to do with the plug that plugs into the mother board it self.

Sorry to say most laptop keyboards come complete. But Toshiba laptop keyboards are not that expensive. The labor is usually more. Some laptops keys can be reinstalled, there is a metal wire that is the piviot and the other part snap in place...Contact a independent service tech will be cheaper than Best buy, or Staples , etc...

Toshiba Equium M70 Trouble with keyboard only two keys dont work with the shift key


The first thing I would try is buy a can of compressed air and give your keyboard a good cleaning. There may be stuff under the keys that are letting them work. Was there any liquid spilled on the keyboard?
