Replacement Keys

HP Recommended
HP Envy x360 - 15-bq213cl
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

So I spilled a little bit of soda on my keyboard, causing it to make my keys sticky. I pulled the 4 keys that were affected off, cleaned them, then put them back on. In the process, 2 of the keys had broken pegs, and 1 had a piece broken off the corner. I looked up how to get replacement keys, but every site either cannot find my specific laptop, or is eternally "Out of Stock". Did not know if there was a verified place to get replacement keys or if i just have to deal with pressing the little cap to type out that number/symbol.

With consumer laptops, individual keys are not replaceable so folks do not sell them.

 

You would have to look into replacing the entire keyboard.

 

If you are experienced at laptop repairs, you can often replace a keyboard for $25 for a new one and a half-hours work. I have done this on older HP laptops.

But, if you're NOT, there is a serious risk of breaking fragile connectors and cables doing this -- so I do not recommend it.

Instead, I would recommend you hunting down a local laptop repair place to have THEM replace the keyboard. Sometimes, on some models, you have to replace the entire top surface of the laptop, not just the keyboard. So you should get an estimate of what is involved before you have the work done.
