    Default Corsair Raptor K40 keyboard.

    Mine is a couple of years old now, and with some abuse with toast, biscuit/cookie crumbs, the keys have got a bit 'sticky' and some are a bit hard to push down, so not smooth as they used to be, making fast typing a bit difficult....

    Is there any easy way to clean all the keys........I haven't tried any remedy yet, as I don't want to break anything ?

    Thanks for any advice.

    Not in the market for a new keyboard? ;-)

    I have been known to send keyboards through the dishwasher and dry them in front of a fan; but it is risky.

    If you like the design of that board then you could get a new K55 RGB for ~$50.

    Looks like I might be, I dug out an old Saitek keyboard, but the keys on that are not much better.
    The K40 was fine a couple of years ago, but probably many new and improved models about now, and not checked for PC parts for ages..

    BTW jon, my HX 850i (RMA from AX860i) is still working just fine.....


    ashiekh......I have heard of that way of cleaning, so have made a note of it.
    I have found that I can winkle out the keys with a small flat bladed screwdriver, but there are thousands of keys to remove, try to clean up, and put them back in the right place.....unless I do this one by one.....

    How hum, it used to work well, but it is not too happy these days.

    Thanks for the suggestions of a different model keyboard, so I will have a rummage down the sides of my couch, to see if there is any money lurking there...
