Popped Off Key Caps - how do I re-install them?Splashed a bit of beer around the right-hand side of my MBP keyboard but wiped it off immediately. Am certain some of the liq...
Answer to: Can replacing the upper case fix an non responsive keyboard?I had that happen to me last month on my 15" MBP mid 2010 unibody. It would seem the upper case solution is the most straight forward, albeit at a whopping $329 (!) Being the cheapskate that I am, I found a keyboard-only part selling on ebay for $28, and with free shipping, too. I searched the ifixit archives, and found out that my cheap skate route will force me to reckon with 52 tiny screws -- that is after going through 34 steps to disassemble the guts of the beast. Plus, the need to buy a Tri WIng driver to dismount the battery. So I ended up going to my Apple-authorized service center, and dropped off the MBP + Keyboard (hoping that the corrosion hasn't killed other components too). Initial quote for labor and diagnosis converts to $56.00. I'll know if 5 days if I saved myself $329 -- or ended up with a $120 gamble (kb + labor, then labor again to reinstall the upper case). Am hoping NOT to give credence to the adage "you pay cheap, you pay twice" HTH
