A Little Liquid WILL Destroy Your Keyboard.

Filed under: Uncategorized — ioconnor @ 6:26 pm

My keyboard has been destroyed. I loved my keyboard. Guess I’ll have to buy another. I bought my last two keyboards from PcKeyboard.com and can’t say enough good things about them. Except that they get dirty and you had better not clean them with liquids.

Does anybody know how to clean a keyboard?

I suppose I’ll buy another. Taking my old one apart was quite educational. I had to remove screws. then there were two screws keeping the circuit board pressed against a plastic piece to a terminal strip. That was very difficult to put back together. The back of the keypad is actually glued with foam to outside back so there is no way to separate the two without ripping it apart. But that is as far as you can go because the keypad boards are held together with melted plastic. Somewhere in there is the problem. Perhaps I’ll soak the whole thing in water or something and then put it back together. I suspect it will further destroy the keyboard though.

Are there any mechanical keyboards that are better than this one?
