    I spilled some water on my Apple Wireless Keyboard and some of the keys are not responding now. I bought it from the Apple Store last April and had it replaced sometime in January because it wasn't working properly. Can I still take it back to the Apple Store? If not, is there a way to fix it?

    If you JUST spilled water on it, you could take the batteries out, dry it out as best you can with e.g. a hair dryer, then cover it in uncooked rice (a desiccant) in an airtight container. Change the rice out every day for 3 or 4 days.

    If it's been wet for a while, or if it's already dried out and still not working, that's unlikely to be recovered. Probably some corrosion inside.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I just bought a sack of rice and stuck the keyboard inside it. I hope that works.

    Why would you expect Apple to replace the keyboard because of your negligence?
