    Spilled a little liquid on MacBook Pro and my enter button isn't working, every time I press it, it inserts a backslash I took the keys off to dry it off after the liquid spilt. wondering if theres a fix would need to replace my keyboard.

    You can try and remove the key VERY gently and clean under it. If you do this though, and you damage the white knob sticking up, the entire topcase needs to be replaced, plus whatever else the liquid hit. At an Apple store they likely won't touch it in the store (if you're in the US) and instead ship it out for ~$700 for 13" macs and over $1000 for 15". Water damage is no fun.

    Did you make the purchase with a credit card? How long ago did you buy it? Many credit cards come with an extended 1 year warranty that covers accidental damage and regular defects. I would check the terms but if they provide the service then it's as easy as going to the Apple store, obtaining a quote and paying for the repair, and then getting reimbursed.
