What's happen to my keyboard

Hello, I asked this question within an older topic of this website, but I receive the advice to ask it as a new question.

so here is my problem

I put coffee without milk or sugar on my unibody mac 13'' 2 days before. I let it dry all night long, after cleaning what I can clean, but maybe I didn't wait enough...

Yesterday, the computer was okay, it works well, excepted some sticky keys on the keyboard. and with the time running, after two hours is was several keys that are not working anymore. So I take out some of the keys to clean it, but they are clean! And even, when I press on the plastik button, corresponding to the key, nothing happen.

so I don't know?? Now the computer is shut down and I will wait. But I'm worried about it. Do you have an idea of why the keys break only after a while?

Sorry for my english, I'm working on it =)

Hi, With your model computer the keyboard and trackpad are part of the upper case. I am including links to the part and the guide for replacing the part. When you disassemble the computer check for corrosion and other damage on the logic board before ordering the upper case. Good luck.

Yes the keyboard could be damaged

if you didn't clean inside the machine there could be damage or corrosion forming on the logic board.

If this answer is acceptable please return and mark it.

Good Luck,

Replace the keyboard, clean the logic board. The keyboard is the one that powers on the MB on this model. By replacing the keyboard you'll have power and full function on the keyboard. But do clean the logic board with some alcohol and let it air dry. While you are there replacing the keyboard get yourself a backlight this model has that option.

Hope that helps. Good luck with that.
