Hi Anne,
Thank you for writing back and I am really sorry about your key issues with your Vaio keyboard.
Unfortunately, this is a mechanical or hardware issue. This happens when the laptop was turned ON while there was still liquid in the keyboard assembly that caused some "short" in the key's circuitry cutting off the conductor between the thin rubber that is pressed when the key is pressed and the main keyboard assembly. Another possible cause as to why this is happening is IF at this point, there is still some or little liquid in the keyboard assembly near the damaged or non-functioning keys.
In this case, you have only 2 options.
First, I suggest that you open the laptop and position the keyboard to face a gently blowing fan. Just estimate some time to fully evaporate or remove any liquid in the keyboard assembly. If the battery is also removable, please remove the battery. After totally drying the keyboard assembly, please try to power on the laptop and see if the keys will now work.
Second, if the keyboard assembly is already dry but the problem persisted, then you need to replace the entire keyboard assembly. This can cost you around £11 to £27 for the replacement keyboard plus the technician key for the actual installation of the new keyboard.
If this laptop is still covered with warranty, then you will only pay for the replacement keyboard since service is free for warranty-covered repairs.
I hope that helped.
Please remember to rate my service positively (3-5 stars/faces) if this helped. Tips are always highly appreciated!
If you need further assistance, please do not rate me negatively with 1 or 2 faces. Instead, please reply to me so that I can help you further.
Thank you!
Best regards,
Jess
