post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
i went to reach for the phone and tipped my coffee cup
my caps and shift won't work this sucks
can it be fixed or should i get a new keyboard

It may just be wet inside. I'd tip the keyboard upside down and make sure all the coffee is out, and then just let it dry. Using a hair dryer might speed things up but someone else may know if that's not the best thing to do.

I've spilled numerous things and always had to get a new keyboard..luckily they're not too expensive!

We've had many spills at work and letting them dry out does work sometimes, so hopefully she doesn't. But you're right, they're not expensive. But it's not something you want to spend money on if you weren't planning on it

i'll try drying it out and call my dh and have him pick up a new one if that doesn't work

I feel for ya! Once I spilled beer on my keyboard. It was totally messed up. I couldn't type anything correctly. I went out and bought a new one the next day. Now that was a webtv keyboard. My pc keyboard is just as dirty and works fine. Let it dry. If you are brave and have patience, pop the keys off and dry the area with the blow dryer. I use rubbing alcohol and q-tips to clean mine. Don't use too much alcohol.

Do you suppose it was drunk?

I'm sorry, I couldn't resist.

My hubby has taken ours apart and cleaned it all up before and it worked like a charm.

Forget the keyboard, you spilled BEER!

That's alcohol abuse
