    Hello,

    Some whiskey (!) was spilt on my surface pro 4 keyboard and then cleaned up with anti bacterial wipe / spray, since then the '2' button hasn't worked and I noticed pressing the space bar seems to input an 'a' as well so it shows 'a '.

    Bizarrely the Z button is also increasing the volume and the X button decreases it, though I'm not sure if this is some sort of mapping problem?

    I'm loath to buy a new surface keyboard for £100 but I'm not sure this is the sort of issue you can repair and I don't get the impression you can eg replace the membrane on a surface keyboard.

    Any advice or is it simply a case of buying a replacement, whether an official surface keyboard or a compatible one?

    Thanks in advance!

    Alas I think it was a bit beyond my skills and I'm not sure it was quite the same issue. I'm not sure if it was the button or something more internal that had gone. In the end I bought another keyboard second hand though I've saved the old one just in case. Thanks again for your help.

    Ah, glad you managed to get another keyboard. I hope it is now working for you.
