Thank you for using FixYa

I assume it does not work now. I would turn off the mouse, if it has a switch and remove the battery. You may need to replace the battery. If it has any little screws on the bottom, unscrew them and try to get inside of it. Some of them you have to pry open the case. Be careful it could break. Once you are inside, see if you can see the pointer, like laser light, take a small brush like a tooth brush and gently scrub the excess off. It may be necessary to use a small amount of soap and water, rubbing alcohol would be best either way, dry it out before you put the battery back in. If you use soap and water you can use a hair dryer to blow it dry, but acohol will evaporate. Good luck.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

If the wheel got stuck you'll have to open the mous and clean the wheel, but there is a chance that the electronics got damaged, then you'll have to buy a new mouse.

How do I remove the keys on a Logitech MK700 keyboard to clean properly?

Try using simple flat-head screw driver. It should remove easily, but i don't think that'll solve your problem.You should pry apart your keyboard with screws and use damp cloth to clean the board, as well as rubber buttons. I'm not so certain about that, but you should try it. Dusan

that is quite the spill! First power off and unplug the mouse.

if the spill was low and the lense on the mouse if fouled, then a quick wipe with a wet windex or achol on a towel will clean the lense. if it is not and was a heavey spill then you may need a Q tip to lightly clean the laser/LED. If this was on top of the mouse and it shorted out unless you are talented at a solder iron, just toss the mouse and get a new one.
If the photo above is incorrect such as it is a wireless mouse then you can take out the batteries, clean the contacts with an achol swab and if there are any screws on the mouse take them out and put the whole mouse in a zip lock of rice. this generally only works if it is fresh and the rice can take out the moisture. if its old try it but throw out the rice when your done, it not worth the contamination of possible battery acid.
PS try new batteries too as they could have shorted but again this is if it was a wireless.

Spilled coke on my keyboard, how do we clean it


Thank you for your query

Best thing would be to get a damp cloth and simply wipe over the keyboard when the laptop is switched off, this will remove the stickyness.

Please ensure when wiping that no water travels into the keyboard which may cause you problems

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.

Coke spilled on to the keyboard for my laptop, but i still can turn it on and the mouse will work but the keyboard won't, i took off the keyboard to dry under it and put it back together but keyboard still...

Take it to the closest computer repair shop... And have them clean your laptop... Maybe the coke short circuited something on the board, and now it doesn't work ...

Spilled coke on my laptop, now keys aren't working correctly.


thank you for choosing

i strongly advice you that don't use your laptop as of now.
the reason why keyboard are malfunctioning is the subtance of coke are go inside your unit and if you will still use it it may caused you a much problem.
you need to look a technician and open your laptop to take or dry any subtances come inside your laptop.

Hopefully you will consider my suggestion.
