Picture of Detect the Problem in Circuit Using Multimeter.

Disassemble your keyboard by unscrewing all screws in the bottom. You'll see three plastic sheets. Clean any previous liquid spills or dirt.

  • upper circuit sheet
  • middle plain plastic sheet
  • bottom circuit sheet

Using multimeter, detect the fault in circuit. It may take a while in detection, be patient. Isolate the problem and this step is done.
