Post subject:  Keyboard Seems Dead - Advice

I had a coke from Wendy's in the plastic cup with ice in it. You know how when ice melts in a cup, the outside of the cup has drops of water on it. Well, it seems that some drops fell on my keyboard. At first it was endlessly entering 9s and 0s. I disconnected and reconnected it. Now it won't work at all. I press any key, and nothing happens. Is it dead? Will it work again eventually if I leave it to "dry out", I guess? Any other advise? Thanks much in advance.

Without looking at the board there is really no way to tell - if the water shorted one circuit together it might be OK, or if it fell onto the microchip it may have killed it.

I would let it "dry out" for a few days, maybe even put it in front of a heater vent or a fan to speed it up. Then you could try reconnecting it and see what results. If it is still dead, the only thing I can suggest would be to send it in to us. See this page if you need repairs:
