Space bar is sticky du to liquid accident ( soft

\015 Space bar is sticky due to liquid accident ( soft drink )\015

Answers :

If the space bar works but is sticky, try removing the spacebar and expose the hinges. Clean the liquid off with a moist cotton bud. Then fix the spacebar back in place, line the spacebar up and press gently until you hear the hinges click into place on the spacebar.
\015\012If the spacebar does not work as it should or it won't click back in place, then the only option is to replace the keyboard.

Get a Electrical/Electronic solvent spray from RS, give it a good spray (with Power Off!) and operate it lots of times. The spray will evaporate naturally and may remove the gunk! Ian.
