I have spilled something on my keyboard. Now it does not work, repeats a character, some buttons do not work, etc

Q: I have spilled something on my keyboard. Now it does not work, repeats a character, some buttons do not work, etc

A: If it was something other than water, act quick. Take the keyboard apart. Take out the transparent plastic circuit. Clean it with alcohol thoroughly. If you spilled sugary liquid or coffee/chocolate, look for any stain spots. The traces on the circuit are conductive, and any stains between traces will have to be cleaned off. Blow off excess alcohol. Let dry for sufficient time. Put the keyboard together and test it. If it still does not work, you did not dry out all of the water, left stains between traces, or did not press align rubber contacts properly.
