Cannot disassemble/clean K800 Keyboard..halp - Page 2

post #11 of 13
So...

I had a cup of tea spilled over my lovely K800 last week. Did the usual emergency stuff like flipping it over, taking off the keys etc.

Now the board still works - except for a few keys, they either do notwork at all anymore or or give strange key combos according to several keyboard testing programs.

Anyway, I took the thing apart totally until I got to the thin, clear laminated two-layer sheet with the "wiring" between the "key spots". Some of those connections seem to be darkened, I guess they're fried. I have no idea how that could have happened since the sheet seems to be laminated tight in every place, so no liquid can enter between the sheet halves as far as I can see. I can 100% reproduce the working/non-working key strokes with that sheet alone, so it's definitely this thing that's broken now, not just some stuck key contacts or something.

So - I guess the thing's trash now. mad.gif

Didn't find any replacement for it on the web, either - the only inscription on that thing says "SANTIAGO 700-006 G-KLJ017", a google search came up with nothing in either combination.

*sigh*

So - that's probably 100,-€ down the drain.. or maybe, if I'm lucky, Logitech will still exchange it for a new one if I ask nicely. smile.gif


Best of luck to the rest of you!

I know this post is kinda old but Google search led me here. I too had a similar issue where there were some dark spots on some of the connections. Some of the keys on my keyboard would not work and more would not work when I had it plugged in via usb. I ended up peeling the two laminate sheets and used alcohol to clean those darkened spots. After drying it out for an hour, put it together and now all my keys are working again even with the USB plugged in. I hope this helps other people out there. I love the keyboard and I'm so happy I don't have to buy a new one.
