    I recently wanted to clean my MBP keyboard with some detergent, however I used a little too much, and it got behind the keys . I then turned the MacBook upside down and let it dry. There's no visible damage (it were only a few drops) and the machine turns on without a problem.
    However, there are 4 keys that, when pressed, type another character besides their own character (for example pressing "b" gives "b[" ).
    Does anybody have any experience with this? Is it something that can go away or something I can fix myself?


    (Ps: the problem persists across multiple accounts, but an external keyboard works fine)

    Sounds like liquid damage. You'll probably need to replace your keyboard.

    Oh god, one of the most complicated repairs. I'm already afraid of the cost ...
