but after covering those the alt, mouse click and power button keys would not work. Then I took that off and put the tape on the bottom where I thought it should be. However, now the S,D,X,C,W, and E keys don't work, but the power, alt, and click buttons do. After this I decided, whatever, I'll just face the consequences of a blown backlight fuse, so I took the tape off. But that didn't fix the issue with S,D,X,C,W, and E. I also tested it with the EC-modded T530, and no dice. At that point, I opened up the keyboard once again, and found that there were traces between the four leftmost pins on the bottom part of the connector, which given you are only supposed to isolate 3 of those pins, I found a bit odd.

Does anyone have any idea what happened here and if I can fix my keyboard?

For my classic keyboard mod.
I isolated pins on the underside of the cable.
Skip the first pin and cover the next three.
You have to be precise. Xacto knife helps.
Don’t cover any pins on the top of the cable.
Only on the underside.
When I covered too many pins the track pointer buttons stopped working.
As for covering the wrong pins, trying to use keyboard and the keyboard not working after that I don't know what may be wrong and if it is possible to restore that keyboard to full former glory. Try to cover the right pins this time, I was advised to use Kapton tape. Make sure to clean other pins well with IPA - those wrongly covered before. Perhaps there is still some sticky goo on them.
