Garmin nuvi 1350 got wet


Liquid and electronics don't mix. You can cause more damage leaving the power applied to the unit when it is wet. Water is conductive due to the metals found in water. This can short out components and damage them.

Electronics that get wet need to be taken apart right away and washed in a 90% alcohol bath and blown dry with compressed air. The alcohol displaces the water and will dry on its own. The compressed air helps speed up the drying process and blow out any residue in hard to reach places or under parts.

If the unit is allowed to dry without being cleaned, a white residue will form around components and the residue can short out connections.

There are some parts that can't be recovered due to getting wet, like LCD displays, batteries and speakers.

I would suggest taking the unit to a professional to have it looked over. There are some places that won't work on water damaged electronics because even if you can revive them, there is no guarantee they won't die tomorrow and many places will not offer a warranty on water damaged unit.

What do you clean it with alcohol or dry cloth tissue etc


Start with a dry cloth. If that doesn't do it, try a pencil eraser (be sure to blow all the gunk out afterward). Only if there's still crud on the contacts then resort to a little alcohol. Don't pour it onto the contacts directly, but onto a cloth.

How do you clean the lens of a portable DVD player


I use a good quality micro-fiber cloth. Like the ones in a eye glass cleaning kit.
fold it to a point and touch the tip in rubbing alcohol. gently clean the lens with the wetted towel tip and fold a dry section to a point and dry it off.
I have done this for my dads karaokee players as they get dirty fast and the words mess up.
Some people may advise you to use a Q-tip or other cloth. DO NOT DO THAT. It CAN scratch the lens!

My printer attemps to grab the paper but does not for either copies or from a computer command


The paper feed roller(s) are probably dirty.If you can reach the the roller that pulls in the paper try to clean it with alcohol or kitchen type cleaner if you do not have alcohol make shure it is fully dry before trying to print.You can also wet one sheet of paper with alcohol where the roller will grab it and tell it to print while firmly holding back the paper as you do not want wet paper to feed into machine repeat if needed

How to clean a remote circuit board. Looks like some rust has got onto the board. The remote was working up until a few days ago. If the remote had got wet it would have been some time ago.


Okay well since it is already dry, you should clean off the "rust" or any film left from the dried water. I like to use a Q-Tip and a small amount of rubbing alcohol (isopropyl). I wet the Q-Tip with the rubbing alcohol and slowly and gently clean any film or anything left over from the water. Use only a small amount of alcohol on the tip, and you may need more than 1 q-tip depending on size. Then let the remote dry completely before you go ahead and try it. The alcohol should dry rather quickly but make sure it is dry. Now hopefully the remote hasn't been burnt out from the water, it will work fine.
Good luck!! EJ

I have a LG vx 5200 that displays the words "Car Kit" after getting wet


Take your phone apart, an using a soft toothbrush clean the CN302 connection at the base of your phone, next to the connector there's a U204 IC with identinfication AAD1 on it. Those are the main areas that needs to be cleaned. For better results you can use a bit of NON-alcoholic cleaning detergent. This will solve your problem.
Best of luck
