Nearly ruined my Blackwidow Ultimate

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Yesterday I spilled chocolate milk on my keyboard and thought I had completely ruined it. I took all the keys and wiped everything down and then let it sit over night.
I plugged it in and it light up but no key worked.
I opened it up and clean it more thoroughly and it now works for the most part except for few things.

A few keys still don't work including "s", "F10", NUM3, NUM7 NUM+, and NUMLOCK.
I tried re-flashing the firmware and re-installing synapse. Nothing helped


I think it might be an issue with the cherry switch but not sure because when I go in to synapse and try to rebind those key they are unresponsive but if i spam that key and the a key next to it will say something like Right shift + Alt + s and that doesn't make any sense. if i do the same thing on a browser window it will start to freak out and open the menu that shows when you right click on the top of the browser and it starts flashing like it is having constant key presses

Any Help would be appreciated.

Usually, conductive liquids and live electronics don't go well together and therefore don't think there's anything you're going to be able to do. Wiat for a few others to chirp in and see if they have any ideas.

My dasSilent lived through 2 soda spills (the second one was a doh.gif week after, the second time I had the double facepalm face).

And some water. It's all good. Amazingly resilient.

Sounds like you recorded some random macros over your keys.
