Default Liquid-damage: LEDs turn default then off

Hello everyone, I just accidently spilled juice over my keyboard and it apparently got into the actual board. The keypresses still work and are recognized correctly, but after trying my best to dry it without unscrewing it and drying it from inside, as soon as I plug it in the default LED layout appears (everything red except wasd and arrow keys) on every key, so LEDs themselves seem to work fine. Yet after about 1-2 seconds, when the utility engine profile would load, the lights stay turned off. Has anyone had this specific problem before or does anyone have any neat tips or tricks to try and dry it as good as possible without opening the case of the keyboard?

Thanks in advance!

Try taking it to the store where you bought it try not to mention that you had water damage, if you get lucky they will just replace it without questions and get you a new one, but i suggest not to do that, but it works if you get lucky

Thanks for your reply!
Even if I did consider taking it back trying your method, I got it off amazon like 2 years ago, so no chance.

If advanced mode is enabled, make sure there is a lighting effect applied to the keyboard.

Try switching to standard mode and see whether the lighting works.
