Hello,

I believe I need to open the keyboard and clean near the contacts, but I am unsure how I should go about this, any suggestions?

i dont know about this particular model, but you will usually find 2 or 3 small clips at the top and bottom of the keyboard. lift these up and the keyboard should come out.

even if you get the keyboard out, it is a self contained unit, there are no contacts you can get to. I would contact Toshiba about getting the keyboard replaced.
