I have a Logitech Ultrax Premium keyboard Y-BL49A and the 1 key sticks sometimes.

I don't know how to pop up keys on this keyboard without breaking them. I know that on old ones this is easy, but mine is only a little old and seems different.

Wash it? Since it is no good, you are not gambling much anyway ;) – Johan Jul 16 '11 at 11:14
@Johan Watched it. Sorry, but I'm not planing to kill my dishwasher or current keyboard. More logical solution would be appreciated. – Eugene Jul 16 '11 at 12:03

use WD-40, just a little squirt should work, and being it is a non-conductive solution you wont have to worry about it shorting out any components.

also... try at your own risk, I cant be held responsible if you break your broken keyboard more. ;) – CenterOrbit Jul 17 '11 at 22:22
