How To Remove And Clean Macbook Pro Keyboard Keys




What do you think about this video?

robert kitchin (Bob): I have a similar keyboard on my Samsung laptop. Cheers buddy, i followed your advice and it worked like a charm.

Mhi kl: Sure appreciate your effort and time, Tim. My space bar is sticking and it is time to clean all my keys. I hadn't spilt anything on my kb, it is just old and well used--and I do see (and taste) a few smudge of my fav dark chocolate, at least I hope it's just chocolate.
I tore off the cardboard top from cigarette paper, very thin cardboard: then slid the cardboard corner under my space bar and drew it gently around and under the space bar. This did the trick.
I then cut slices/pieces from the thin cardboard and worked them around all my keys. Finally I vacuumed my keyboard, holding the hose end slightly above the keys, pressing one at a time down (a few times). It takes patience.
This is a great vid to have on hand should I ever spill liquid on my kb.
Again, thanks for the excellent presentation, Tim.
This is not a performance for anyone in a hurry. You can get your keyboard professionally cleaned.
Namaste and care,
mhikl

Aliza Rhodes: Lifesaver, thank you!

Joshua Hester: the freak is wrong with your fingers?

Morgan Roberts: 35 minutes....I'm thankful for every damn second of this awesome tutorial! Thanks Tim, you saved me from a very expensive trip to the Mac repair shop. In between watching the tutorial twice and lot's of pause/rewind, I'd have to say that I easily spent two and a half hours watching this video as I cleaned my entire keyboard. Cheers Mate!

Thomas Riendeau: Hey man thank you very much !

It may be a good idea to pop some bubbles to write down what you were saying when the sounds fades out :)

Paco Cuetz: thank you brooooooo

z a: Thanks sir ... your advise worked.

Anita Lazar: THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!! Don't listen to any of the negative comments! I so appreciated all the detail and finally felt confident enough to pop off my keys and clean my sticky keyboard after watching this video! You saved me $750!!!

Anita Lazar: THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!!!

LPS TrixyPixy™: gotta DABB around here

Daniel Keller: This method broke my enter key. Don't do this.

Bob Rich: Why on earth would people place abusive comments when a person has spent time and effort to be helpful to others? If this is not your thing, don't watch it.
Tim, please don't be put off by these trolls.

Bob Rich: Thank you, Tim. This video will save me hundreds of dollars.
At the moment, my yutio keys intermittently fail to work. They come and go. I think there must be some little object under there. Having seen you do it gives me the courage to have a go.
:)
Bob

Slender Man: My God, what is wrong with your hands? Bubonic plague?

David Nigg: thank you! my spacebar war sticking and hard to press, had to clean it

David Laflamme: Thank you! :)

Uomo Magnete Minus: Basically you're saying to the world that you're a drunk.

Jail Bucks: Try not putting your finger over the mic next time.

NoahS: Cant get my brightness key back on .-. It isn't clicking into place...
