I KNOW, I KNOW!!!


I had a sticky "o" a few months back and someone from here (I forget who, sorry) told me to carefully pry out the key, see if anything is stuck under it. I also licked my finger and rubbed on the part under the key, to get off any gunk...snapped the key back on....PERFECT.

And use a Dust and lint spray
I have done that a few times and it worked after.

Throw about 4 inches of water in the bathtub and drop the keyboard in. (Preferably upside down.) Swish it around vigorously for a few minutes then let it dry for day or so. (It'll take that long to clean the bathtub out after anyway.)

Well, what do you think mine is? Mechanical?

It's a circuit board. Get it wet, let it dry. It's fine.

Maybe in the future skiny when i will be gone for a few days I'll do that. What I meant was i also have other features built in besides just a keyboard things to run volume, calc, copy and paste etc. likely makes no difference but hey I'm allowed to be technology illiterate when I wanna be:)

I'm just screwing with you. Nobody ever wants to do it but I've been doing mine for years. More than one in fact.

It helps though if you keep a spare keyboard. I just switch between the two when one's left drying.... and make sure it's dry before you plug it in.

I was given this tip: Once a week turn suction on vacuum cleaner to low, take off the "brush" fitting, then vacuum keyboard with tube - helps prevent the build-up!
