spilled sugary water on keyboard

I usually take great care for my gear but there was a mistake and some spilled on my K65 RGB LUX keyboard which I think is a fantastic keyboard.

 

I went online and read that a use of some alcohol with some ear stick cleaner will do.

 

so I uncapped the key (caps lock) and start working on it and it helped.

 

then the stickiness came back so I opened the keyboard to see further along and used an air blower to clean the keyboard from dust and particles..

 

My main problem now is that although all the lights are working while I plug the keyboard, the top part, volume controls, RGB, Windows disable etc, do not work.

 

I tried to reset the keyboard 15 seconds with pushing Esc while plugging it in. does not work.

 

tried pressing the inside button didn't do anything either.

 

Can this be helped?

Thanks.

The sugary substance is now grounding the circuits to the top row. Probably need to open the unit and properly clean the board, which very well may be more work than you are prepared for. Not to mention voiding the warranty.

 

I'd use it as is, and when it finally kaputs, replace it.
