X1 Carbon 6th Gen - (Type 20KH, 20KG): Spilled redbull on keyboard

2020-01-04, 9:32 AM

Hello,

 

I accidently spilled some redbull on my keyboard but luckely everything is working still fine.

The only problem is that some keys are now very "mushy". Should I open up the keyboard to clean it or could I just remove the caps somehow?

 

Kind regards,

 

Benjamin

Hi !

 

Welcome to Lenovo Community Forums.

 

Kindly follow the steps below about the recommended way of cleaning the keyboard.

 

  • Absorb some isopropyl alcohol on a lint-free, soft cloth.
  • Squeeze out excess liquid from the lint-free, soft cloth.
  • Wipe the keytop surface with the lint-free, soft cloth, ensuring no liquid drips on or between the keys.
  • Allow to dry.

Hence, other way of cleaning the machine specially the parts is not recommend as long as you'll not open the machine itself. Reference link on how to keep your computer clean.

 

Regards,

We don't recommend removing the keys because warranty coverage in terms of keyboard replacement was replacing the keyboard assembly.

The keycaps you can just pull off. Then click them back on. No worries.
