If you can remove the keyboard from the laptop you can try cleaning the back of it with a que-tip and a small amount of rubbing alcohol. Most likely it will need a replacement keyboard, or you could plug in a desktop keyboard so you can at least use the computer until you get a proper replacement.

If you post the laptop maker and model number I can try to help you further.

Spilled tea on keypad of macbook now it doesn't work


Open laptop and lay on heavy towels with the keyboard facing down, remove charger and main battery, most of the tea should drain out in this position, contact a service centre to assess the motherboard, sooner the better.

You need to return it to repair shop. I think there are hardware that need to replaced to. Maybe the capacitor of the motherboard is defective also. Just return it to the repair shop so that they can check what are the problems.

After liquid spill the laptop has to be disassemble and the motherboard inspected for liquid damage. In some cases cleaning the motherboard might fix the laptop.

Spilled iced tea on toshiba satellite A55-S1064 keyboard


Sorry for the inconvinience caused to you.
1. When it happens 1st immediatly u have to remove the battery and AC/DC power.
2. If you have blower then blow the air through it untli the tea particles fly away.
3. Wipe it with a soft cloth. Check wether keys are sticky or functioning well after cleaning.
4. If it is same problem then you have to remove the keypad and clean the board. To do this you need to open the laptop.
5. Else you have to replace the keyboard section.

If the problem was not resolved. Its better to consult a technical person.

Thanks & regards
Nanda Kishore.
