Hi Casey, the keyboards can be replaced on these, the only trouble is finding one. I don't have any for the stealth models. It's possible that if any key is not working, it may also be board related, which does sound likely considering the cpu fan is stuck at 100%-this is caused by board issue. Sounds like the water got through the keyboard and onto the board. It's unfortunate but sounds like theres not much that can be done in this case unless you go through with component level motherboard repair and a possible keyboard replacment. I would suggest tearing it down and checking to see how much water damage there actually is. Taking pictures to show where most of the water damage was located. If you don't have access to an ultrasonic cleaner, you could still probably soak the motherboard in 90% or higher isopropyl alcohol and clean it with a brush, same goes for the keyboard, but i would remove each key individually first to clean under each one with the alcohol and brush, then putting the keys back on once...
hello Brian, a somewhat common issue. This involves corrupt data lines from the ALTERA MAX V, sometimes due to an open resistor on one of the said lines. However, there are other issues that can cause this as well. It is possible to repair, if you are interested in sending it. I would be happy to help with this or to answer any other questions you may have. -Brenden
Hello there. Let me guess, this is the 2013 or 2014 edition? Also let me guess, this is the usb port nearest headphone/mic combo jack? Usb failures are somewhat common on these. what happens is the mux fails and takes out the high side transistor causing a short to ground.(most of the time). I would be happy to repair this for you if you are interested in sending it in. I work on these devices daily. I would also be happy to answer any other questions.
what year model do you have? I have keyboards in stock for the 2013, 2014, and 2015 models with the green backlight. I do not have the chroma ones however. I'd be happy to help if you have any questions. Feel free to ask.
most of the time the battery not detected issue will be caused by a thermal resistor or thermal fuse inside the battery pcb itself, in other words a bad battery. However, sometimes it comes down to a motehrboard issue such as a clock or data line to the battery being corrupt. Feel free to send it in if you would like a free diagnoses of it. I'd be more than happy to help with this repair.
