I wish to know whether it’s possible to pry off the key to clean off the contacts. (I spilled coffee on the keyboard).

Fortunately for me, the key was on the edge of the board (the down arrow key). It was stuck on.

I lifted the key up as much as I could and I cleaned it with Deoxit. That did the trick. My keyboard is now working.

Thanks for the steps!

Oops. Spoke too soon. There’s something wrong with the keyboard: the INSERT key (ESC -[2~ ) is stuck. Also, there’s a red light under the keyboard. I’m not sure what that all means…
