Spilled a bit of soda on my Razer BlackWidow Ultimate

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Hello, last night, I was kind of stumbling over my desk and knocked over my soda (thought I drank it all as nothing would come out when I try to drink it), and it was spilled over my keyboard. So what I did was get some paper towels to clean/dry them (from gaps and the top). It was working fine for awhile, but now it kind of works.
The place where I spilled my soda was over "J", "K", "L", ";", "'", "M", ",", ".", "/" keys. Now the "," key doesn't work. However, when I press "J", "K", ";", ".", right control, and left arrow, it would register the "," key, and hold it. For example...

j,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,k,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,l,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,;,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,'

It stops when I press some other key that doesn't somehow register the "," key.

Is there anyway to fix this?
Thank you in advance.

You have a short or something cause by the soda spill.

Unplug your keyboard and see the geekhack wiki http://geekhack.org/showwiki.php?title=Cherry+Corporation+Switch+Wiki#AAACKK+I+spilled+coke+beer+wine+Johnnie+Walker+Or+Worse+On+My+Keyboard+and+its+DEAD

I spilled beer on mine and not even replacing enter/backspace key switches has fixed it. But I kept using it like a drunk person is wont to do.

It seems I have to register to see the link.

Anyways, I think I've fixed it. I took the keys out, wiped out the remaining residues, and use a air compressors to clean it. Now it seems to work fine.
