    • Turn the keyboard over and slide the battery cover in the direction of the arrows slightly, and then lift the cover away.

  2. Logitech K700 Keyboard Teardown: step 2, image 1 of 1
    • Remove the batteries and the two screws shown.

    • Use a thumbnail or a pick to separate the clips around the periphery between the black and white plastic parts.

    • There are 4 clips on the top, 2 on either side, and 5 along the bottom. If you do the sides and top first, the bottom should slide out.

    • Don't separate the top and bottom immediately, since there are a couple of cables (near the touch pad) that connect between the two.

    • The smaller of the two cables is for the touchpad. Lift the catch on its connector in order to slide it out.

    • The larger cable is for the key matrix. Just pull it out from the connector (friction fit).

    • This is as far as you can easily disassemble the keyboard. To go further requires removing 12 screws and 35 plastic rivets. This is not recommended.

    • To clean the keyboard of liquid, I suggest holding it over a sink with the touchpad side up, then spraying plenty of isopropyl alcohol from the back, avoiding the touch-pad area (you may wish to mask it off). Let dry completely before reassembling.

    • If keys still do not function after cleaning, then it is possible that traces on the key matrix have become corroded. This is not repairable, since the key matrix is a sealed unit. It consists of 3 layers of plastic that are sealed together. Unfortunately, it is not 100% sealed to prevent entry of liquids.

    • Should you go further and remove the 12 screws and 35 plastic rivets, you can see this.

  6. Logitech K700 Keyboard Teardown: step 6, image 1 of 1
    • The keys can be popped out easily enough by pushing from the back side. This exposes the key matrix.

    • Here is the key matrix in all its glory.

Very helpful! I combined this and cleaning the battery compartments with a white vinegar drenched Q-Tip to clean out some old battery corrosion, and now it turns on!

any way you could send me a pic of the backside of the battery cover? i’d like to try to recreate it with a 3d printer
