Spilled liquid over keyboard, works fine but 5 buttons don't work?

I recently spilled some beer over my Macbook Pro keyboard. Immediately wiped all of the liquid off and shut it down. I restarted and everything worked fine except for my "A", "1", "Q" and some F-keys won't work.

I'm not a computer expert so I wonder if there is anything I can do to repair those buttons? No other damage so Power, battery, etc works fine.

Thanks for your help!

You could try popping the key caps off and try cleaning things up a bit more. Just be careful here as anything you use needs to evaporate cleanly and you don't what to get it too wet either.

Sorry to say this model has the keyboard riveted in to the top case. So you'll need to replace the complete top case to replace the keyboard.
