Spilled some water on my phone and now my screen wont turn on. everything else works fine but the screen wont turn on???

Like all water damage on electronics, it is critical to do the following right away: (1).Remove the battery to slow down the corrosion process. (2). Have someone remove the case to expose the circuit board. (3). Assess the damage. It's easy to see where the water/moisture is as you should notice a whitish/greenish deposit at the spill site.
If it's minor, you might be able to clean the damage and resume operation. Good luck, hope this helps.

I dripped a bit of water on my dualshock 3 and its buttons started acting up. i left the pad for a while. when i press the ps button i get nothing and when i connect via usb the lights just flash. help...

Water on electronics is extremely problematic. In almost all cases, unless properly and promptly taken care of, the device is usually ruined. When you spilled the water on it and then pressed buttons, the electricity that is normally sent was intensified by having a conductive material present, and the internal components were probably fried. This is why the controller can't correctly interpret the buttons that you are pushing. The PS3 controller is problematic in that to turn off the controller, you actually have to press buttons. In the future, whenever you spill water on any electronic item, immediately turn it off and allow to air dry for at least 2 days before even attempting to turn it on again. Unfortunately, in this case, I think you are just out a controller.

My PS3 wireless controller will not work. It is complete charged and I have also tried using it with the usb. My other controller works just fine so I know it is not the usb cable. I have not dropped...

While your PS3 is off try turning it on using he defective controller. If it does not turn it on then press the controllers reset button located on the back. Then plug it into your PS3 using a usb cable and then press the PS button on the controller. Re-syncing the controller to the console.
If the controller does turn on the console and no other buttons are working, then try contacting Sony with the problem. You may just have a defective controller.

Spilled water on modem now an amber light appears but fan inside not running so computer wont turn on? Can i get it fixed?

More than likely when you spilled the water on the modem (external I'm guessing) it caused a short and fried your motherboard. Any type of short can fry anything connected to it...even if the device doesn't have power. Since the ethernet cable can carry voltage it can happen that way too.

Spilled water on it, now it wont turn on

Removed battery first. You should disassemble it to clean and wipe it dry. From bottom to top. Under its keyboard. Don't power it on until you are sure no water remains.
