Acer Aspire 5610 - one key does not work

\015 My new Acer Aspire had coffee spilled on it. We got it wiped off as best we could, but for two days one key was stuck. Finally got that fixed, but now the End key does not work. How do these keys work to make contact so the key is recognized as pressed? I have removed the key cap and can't see anything under the little wishbone type holder? How can I test the electrical contacts of that key? And how to clean it?\015

Answers :

Laptop keyboard are semi-sealed circuit boards. This means that liquid can get into the contacts and can not be cleaned. Depending on how much liquid was spilled on the keyboard chances are that the liquid has seeped around the edges of the keyboard and down onto the mainboard of the laptop. My first suggestion would be to keep the laptop turned off until you can remove the keyboard and check for liquid damage to the mainboard. If there is no damage to the mainboard I would suggest buying a new keyboard before turning the computer back on as any shorts caused by the liquid damage on the keyboard can cause damage to the keyboard controller circuit on the mainboard.
