Keyboard cleaning problem

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I've just finished cleaning my Das Ultimate after an unfortunate spill, and after letting it dry for a day to ensure no shorting, my "k" key doesn't register. I took it back apart and checked the circuitry on the bottom and don't see any shorts or cut traces. Is it possible to clean inside of a cherry blue switch? If so, how do I get in there to clean its inner workings?

EDIT: a bit more diagnosis: When I first plug in my keyboard, It hammers out like 5 "k"s and stops. This leads me to believe that the switch on the inside is stuck together and always connected.

Unfortunately you may have to desolder that switch and replace it if it doesn't dry out in the next few days. Instructions here.
