I recently decided to clean my G15(Y-UW92, the second generation) keyboard, and when I was finished the f key keeps thinking its pressed.
So I opened the keyboard and did some tests, the problem seems to be the jelly-ish thing that pushes the keys up, if I remove that, the f key works perfectly fine.
So I think that its just some fat or something like that, but I'm too afraid I'll kill my keyboard to willy-nilly apply chemicals
Do you guys know how to do that safely?
Or have any other Ideas?
(I already tried: Replugging, cleaning the jelly-ish thingy with water, on different computers/OS's)

There is no need to apply chemicals on the keyboard to fix the issue. When cleaning the keyboard, using a compressed should have done the job. The plastic that holds the key might have been damaged after cleaning the keyboard. If the F key is still being pressed although its not, it means that the key is physically sticking.

Thank you for your response, but I have not quite been keeping you up to date
It seems the key was somehow recalibrated, it now responds to even the slightest bit of pressure
But I sort of fixed it, the OS auto-disables the key, and in windows I have assigned the G5 key as f key.
Only in ubuntu its still copy-paste, thankyou very much for your awesome linux support Logitech, but I digress.
If anyone reads this, PLEASE DO NOT OPEN UP YOUR KEYBOARD, I KNOW ITS TEMPTING BUT REALLY, DON'T!
I don't know how but somehow the keyboard recalibrated, the F key now works (almost)perfectly fine.
I've tested it for a week now and after a while it starts randomly placing f's, but a quick reboot usually solves the problem.
I do not understand how or why, but it works, so don't rush ahead to buy a new one if you encounter a similar problem, after one or two months it somehow repairs itself.
