HP Laptop DV6000 Pepsi on/in keyboard

Recommended Posts

I spilled Pepsi on the keyboard 2 days ago. I quickly turned it off, flipped it over and patted it dry the best I could. I also took most of the keys off and cleaned them and I left it open and upside down overnight to dry out. Everything seems to be working fine except the keyboard. A friend told me it could be replaced, but I'm not sure if this is something I can do myself. I'm pretty handy, but I don't know how tricky it would be. Any suggestions?

 

Thanks in advance!

So far so good. I followed the directions to remove the keyboard. I gently cleaned up a few small sticky spots under the keyboard and got the part number. I put the old keyboard back in until I get a new one. It was much easier than I expected! I'm going to order a new one today. Thanks again! You have saved me so much time, frustration, and money!!!

That pesky ocean is in the way, lol.

 

I have one more question...

I put it all back together and tried to order the new keyboard. I was sent the wrong one and now can't find the part # I had written down. I really don't want to take it apart again until I get the replacement. Any other way to find the right part #?

I expect it'll be the same as this one mentioned way down that page.

 

I believe the keyboard part number will be the same as for all laptops in dv6000 series.

Here it is: 441427-001 (US keyboard).

 

And as hazel said above, let us know when you get it fixed. I need to know where to send the bill. :D

I received the new keyboard in the mail today. It took about 10 minutes to remove the old and install the new. It's working great! I'm so grateful for your help and VERY glad to be rid of the USB keyboard.

 

Thanks again,

Lynn
