New Keyboard Installation - Select keys working

Hello iFixIt!

Earlier this year, I spilled liquid onto the Macbook Air. After around a day, when I pressed the keys it would just input weird character - not letters. Obviously it seemed like the keyboard was impacted but nothing else because once I plugged in an external keyboard, I can use the machine fine.

This morning I installed the keyboard perfectly, and re-assembled the Mac. Only a select amount of keys work "B, up and left arrow and one command"

I purchased this keyboard from eBay: http://www.ebay.com/itm/271346555131?_tr...

He has a 99.9% excellent rating.

What could the problem be? Is there another issue with the laptop? Did I receive a broken keyboard? Was it a poor keyboard installation?

Any help would be great!

Time and moisture=corrosion damage.

It's possible that the connector or other components on the logic board are damaged. Only you, by close examination with a magnifying glass, can determine this.

If there is no other damage visible talk with your vendor about the replacement keyboard.

If this answer is acceptable please remember to return and mark it.
