First time posting a project, and maybe this is the overly officious way of going about it, so apologies if I’m Doing This Wrong.
Looking for a little “Day 1” help with unsoldering a mechanical keyboard that had an unexpected drink of coffee. It’s about 99 percent operational again now, with lights and everything except for two keys that’re kiiiinda flakey (h & 8), and one that doesn’t work AT ALL (z). Normally, with a $20 keyboard I’d just swap out and FreeGeek the old one, but this is a $100+ Logitech G610 that has already been replaced at full price, so I’m hoping to at least make the damaged one useful to somebody again.
Looks like the mechanical switches are pretty easy to take apart and clean, but the switches are soldered in locked position to the circuit board, so while the keycaps pop off no problem for cleaning, the switches themselves have to be unsoldered to open/clean/replace.
I’m wondering if there’s someone who could offer a little “first time doing this - here’s how to not wreck it” support to an old tech who usually stops repairs at the “unscrew & unsnap” layer, and help me get into the “intentionally melting stuff” layer.
