Why is keyboard erratic?


A "light spill"is all it takes. The keyboard will have to be replaced.

Tip

Spilled liquid on Keyboard!


1. Purchase plastic keyboard cover. 2. Keep coffee etc. anywhere not near keyboard.

For spill, unplug keyboard. If non sugar liquid, invert keyboard, shake or tap gently. Wipe with lent free absorbent cloth while still inverted. If soda or coffee with sugar, pour 1/4 cup of clear clean (distilled the best) water onto keyboard (yes), Then invert. Let dry a minimum of several hours still inverted. I cheat with a hairdryer on low 6-12 inches. After keyboard is completely dry (and cool). Plug in after turning computer off, restart, test all keys, including shift, option etc. If keys miss or don't work buy new keyboard and cover! Aloha, Cliff

How to clean keyboard - sticky keys


If you're lucky, the coffee did not penetrate into the key membranes. Remove the battery, then try rinsing the affected area with clean water the same way you spilled your coffee. That way the water will go into the same areas. If you try some upside-down-on-an-angle rinse, the water may not get into the sticky areas. Dry immediately using a hair dryer set on low/medium.

Chances are it's ruined, but a few minutes of rinsing and drying might save your keyboard. Not much to lose by trying.

Touch pad


You probably fried something with the coffee.  There are replacement touchpads available if you know how to replace them if not an authorized dealer will be able to point you in the right direction.

You may want to open the laptop and check for damage to the touch pad including connection to the mother board. If you can not see any visible damage to pad or connection replace with another pad. Good Luck

Top letters pressed also types the above numbers


Hi there.
After a liquid spill on the keyboard and you have done your best to clean it and the keys still do the same thing, your only option is to replace the keyboard.
I have come across this problem many times, some keyboards you can clean and bring them back to good working order and others you have no choice but to replace.
Liquids like soda or sweet coffee do the worst damage to keyboards.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

I spilled coffee over keyboard and now the keyboard is not working properly is there a way i can fix this i have left it for 24 hours and it seems worse


No, keyboards are too cheap to justify opening up a keyboard and attempting to clean it, especially if you drink your coffee with sugar, the sugar works at the etchings, and when you attempt to clean the traces, you wipe them away rendering the keyboard useless.
