Yea but it was an accident and he is my mate

I did manage to allow a really bad virus out of quarantine on his pc when switching his AV program wiping everything previously...

So then - best bet is dishwasher on rinse mode with all keys removed (and put in the utensils section - with no soap yar??

Clean it by hand tbh. Use whatever, then dry in something like an airing cupboard.

Used to work with the old Amiga500s, many a coke`n`coffee spilt on them.

Then of course u can also pop the keys and clean it like that perhaps. U can usually stick something under them and prize them off - be very careful tho, maybe try a rarely used key first.

I found dishwashers to work perfect!

Just let it dry and it will be fine.

I just pop all the keys off with a butter knife, unscrew the back and wash everything other than the electronics with hot soapy water

it is perfectly ok to bung your kyeboard into a dishwasher, with nothing taken apart

i've done it before, many times, its nothing too serious.

this is what i do...

tape usb plug

set dish washer to lowest/quickest cycle, with nothing added, ie, no washing up liquid etc etc

as soon as dish washer is finished, wipe keyboard with dry towel, then leave to dry in somewhere that gives off heat, ie, above boiler

over night, next morning, plug keyboard back in comp, BOOM! it works

I'd go 50/50 on the ideas tbh. If you take the eclipse apart, the key part of the keyboard separates from the rest of the keyboard so you can clean the keys without getting the circuit wet.

I'd also consider wrapping the key part in a sheet and putting it in the washing machine (no spin cycle) so you can control the heat?

I'm sorry, I'm absolutely cracking up at the thought of putting a keyboard in the dishwasher or washing machine rofl!! :rollingla

I mean I know it'll probably be fine, but I can't stop laughing at the thought of it

My keyboard needs a bit of a clean actually, perhaps I'll have a bath with it :rotfl:

Sorry, I'm being stupid now, but it's a Monday morning and this thread has made me chuckle

Best of luck with the washing though! Hope it works!
