Spilt Coca-Cola on my Razer Arctosa. Need help with cleaning.

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
So I spilt some coke on my razer arctosa. It wasn't even much, but it brought it down.

Soon the '3' key stopped working, but while I typed it every other key I pressed would register the key and then 3 at the same time. Resulting in my text looking like this:
Code:
Hi3 Gu3y'3s

So I just ignored it because I was busy. Then my space bar went out. Had to copy a space and use ctrl+v. So I thought maybe if I reset my computer it will work. Once I booted up it didn't work at all. So I found a backup board in my basement (it is a peice of crap). It is a Micro Innovations Turbo-Trak. Worst feeling membrane board ever small backspace etc.

Anyways to my point.

I took my Razer apart. The plast film circuit board is sticky. I need to know how I would wash it. I know I can take the membrane and put it in the washer like I've seen in some guides here, but I'm not sure about this:

(Not mine, found a picture online of a lycosa one)

Is it safe to wipe it down with a damp cloth and thoroughly dry it?

Safe if you unplug it, wipe it down with a rag, and let it dry for a while. It has to be completely dry, otherwise shorts... I would not wash it no matter what. I would be scared to try.

Well the keyboard is already messed up. You sure I can wipe this peice down though? I would be glad to fix it.

Even washing it should be viable; it's a rubber dome keyboard and nothing important is going to corrode or have lubrication removed.

Just make sure it's completely dry before attempting to use it. This could take several days.

99% Isopropyl if you want to be completely safe.

But tap water should be fine.
