Question about IBM ThinkPad T60 Notebook

1 Answer

Nothing happens when I press the power button except the light

As I said before I spilled some liquid on the keyboard and I let it dried for a few days. The problem still exists: when I press the power button, nothing happens except the light on the monitor screen (the "night light") is on. Now I figure that there's something happen in my laptop coz it's warmed; but the whole thing doesn't really seem to be turned on.

Regardless if you don'r feel comfortable taking the comouter apart it needs to be taken apart and looked at. Depending on what got spilled inside the sooner the better. If it was a soda of some kind it could be bad.I would take out the battery and not try it again.

I spilled liquid on my HP Probook 4320S (with spill resistant keyboard). Dried it up straight afterwards. Now it won't power up


Take it to a service shop asp, key board will need to be replaced, and the laptop will need to be assessed for motherboard damage.

Tip

Liquid spills


Todays notebooks & laptops come equipped with spill resistant keyboards. Thats a big help in itself. But some are not . If your notebook has suffered a liquid spill while its on , IMMEDIATELY shut it down. GET AWAY from carpeting or metal furniture or objects: stand on wood or cement floor only. Turn the unit and place on its side to drain it from the liquid (NOT UPSIDE DOWN) and to avoid further damage to mainboard and keyboard. DO NOT TURN IT ON AGAIN  . Remove the battery, hard disk drive, CDROM, memory modules, remove back cover, until exposed to mainboard. Take conventional hair dryer, blow dry using HIGH heat, slowly move over peripherals and mainboard  five inches away with  Extra drying process on keyboard and mainboard. Using a few cotton balls, pat down any excess liquid by absorbing into cotton -- blow dry this area intensley for long time (20-35 minutes, depending on amount of liquid spill). Wait a few days , replace all parts and turn on notebook.

When this happens, you should fully disassemble the notebook & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of liquid on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, liquid damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no liquid seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the notebook.
If the liquid fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

I accidently spilled a shot of whisky


If you do not have spill proof keyboard, usually, the liquid will go through the keyboard to the motherboard of the system. most likely, you will have to get the motherboard of the system replaced. if the system is still under warranty, call the manufacturer for replacement.

Hope this helps.

My notebook does not turn on


Yea I would definitely wait for everything to dry out before diagnosing it......sometimes you get lucky and even though components got wet, after they dry the function......I would give it a day or two then try to fire it up again. If you get nothing , start troubleshooting
