Hi, I recently spilled some soda on my out of warranty keyboard and I opened it up to clean it and I was relieved to see that the liquid stopped at the keys sealed compartment. I cleaned it,closed it up, plugged it in and it worked fine except one key was still sticky so I disassembled it once again but when I plugged it in the screen wouldn't turn on and the keyboard was getting realy warm on its back side. I opened it up again but nothing looked funny except perhaps the fat ground cable maybe touching the outer shell of a usb plug. I, yet again, plugget it in and this is where we are now; all keys work perfectly but their lighting is always on at full power even when the pc is turned off. The luminocity button works only for the screen which displays data with no problem. So, is there anything to be done before I install rheostats or switches on the keyboard and turn it into keyboardstein ?
