you exposed the top of three sheets.
the contamination/deformation is between the two outer sheets

many people have complained about switch failures in osborne keyboards
it is probably corrosion between these switch layers
you might be able to change something if you can inject a solvent into
the side of the switch by drilling through the top layer, but just a
solvent on top will do nothing
