Tipps for replacing the keyboard after redwine damage
Christmas got crazy this year and somehow my glas of wine decided to fall over and spill all over the keyboard of my Sony Vaio SV-S13A1C5E. After shutting it off, cleaning of as much wine as possible, then flipping it upside down and letting it dry over night, I started dismantelling it on the next day. Took it apart completely and found out, that the wine only got on to the parts of the keyboard. I took off all keys and the plastic backing, cleaned them thoroughly and let them dry in a nice bed of rice till the next day.
Today I put everything together again, booted up the loaptop (which luckily worked!) but had to see, that many of my keys are not working (e.g space and Enter).
My next thought was to replace the keyboard parts. The only problem is, that one part seems to be glued in place and I don't know how to remove it propperly and how I would install the replacement.
Is this even the right way to do all of this? Or does anyone have a better idea how I should advance from now on? I believe what makes replacing this keyboard harder than replacing other Sony Vaio keyboards is, that it isnot a seperate unit but part of the sturdy aluminum top of the laptop.
I'll be glad for every bit of information from you guys.
Thanks in advance
Is this a good question?
