Water spillage - display not working

A few weeks ago i spilled some water on top of the unit. I switched it off right away, soaked up what water i could, then left it to dry for a few hours. When i switched it back on again it made some nasty, bacon-frying type sounds and the display didn't light up. I switched it off and left it a little while longer. The next time i switched it on there were no crackling sounds so i played a cd and it worked. However the display didn't light up, and to this day is completely blank.

Took in bathroom and got moisture in it while taking shower

I am in a similar "jam" right now!
I lost my iPod in a huge Snow Bank on my Driveway.
I finally located it once the Mountain melted away, just last Eve.
I have it placed on a Furnace Register (a hot Air vent in the floor).
Put it somewhere warm & dry, that DRY Air can freely pass around it.
A Sunny open Window will and has also worked for me also!

I have had 100% success with this method as far as Radios etc. -soaked- in a Rainstorm.
I don't know at this point if my iPod will survive the soaking as some Dirt got in the connection port.
The big secret to having any real success regarding soaked micro-electronics is;
Do NOT attempt to power it up OR re-charge it, until about 1 WEEK of Time "off" & "drying out" has passed, even though it will likely be dry in 2-3 Days. Why I say this?
I spilled Water once into a(Florescent) Digital display Stereo, (which was running). I switched it off, & did my "Drying technique" but was impatient, & turned it back on after only 1 1/2 Days.
The Digital display was permanently damaged, as some Moisture remained trapped in the Dig display. (the 5's now show 6's). It works again otherwise. (the Display was not "wet" at the moment I switched it off. The Moisture got in hours later while "off").
Another alternative method if you have no hot Air vents available is to drop it in a Zip lock Baggie & approx. 3 Hand full of (dry uncooked) white Rice, or 1 lump of Charcoal.
I prefer SILICA GEL BEADS, just 1-2 Handfuls will do for Cell Phone size devices.
Leave sealed in the Bag a few Days.
Happy future use to your gadgets!

I have a Sanyo DCTS760 surround system. A couple of weeks ago i got a loud static noise coming from the front left speaker. I tapped gently but forcefully on the top of the reciever cabinet and this ,...


if the left front channel is not working, first test the speaker with the right channel that is working to make sure the speaker is still good.

If the speaker is good, then it means the fuse of the left channel has burnt. Open the receiver and check the left channel fuse.

Good luck.

LG Rumor 2 charges but won't turn on

Remove the battery and the sim card and leave it in a warm place (not on top of a radiator) for a few days.

(If it is possible to open the case without doing any damage, then this would speed up the drying process

How do I clean the water lines on a refrigerator?

The ice dispenser spill shelf should be wiped dry immediately to prevent spotting if excessive spills occur. Water left on the shelf may leave deposits. Placing a paper towel under the grill will help absorb the water that would normally stand on the shelf.
To remove deposits, soak the area with one of the following solutions:
  • Undiluted vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon of non-precipitating water softener
  • Mixture of 1 teaspoon of citric acid powder (NOT to be used in stainless steel dispensers) per 1 pint of hot tap water.

Soak until the deposit disappears or becomes loose enough to wipe away. Usually 30 minutes of soaking time is adequate.

Igniter clicking when all four knobs in off position after water spill

It is possible that once the unit dries out the clicking will stop. If it doesn't, you will need to call someone to have the problem addressed. You will need a spark module and or an ignition switch(s).

The reason the machine is coming up with E20 when drying.
is that there is a blockage of fluff in the dryer air duct on the right hand side of the machine just below the fan unit.
the air that goes through this duct is heated and returns back to the tub to dry the clothes. because there is a blockage in this duct the fan pushes air up the pressure switch tubes and fools the machine in to thinking that there is too much water in the drum,
too remove this blockage you have to disconnect the power supply, remove the lid and remove the back panel, 4 screws at the bottom + 4 up top under the lid. plull the water pipe with the valve out of the way and pull back panel away.
you should now see the dryer condensor unit blocked up with fluff. remove this unit and clean with bottle brush.
replace and make sure hoses are done up tight. replace back panel and lid, try again on drying and things should be alot better, drying should be alot quicker as well.

Water dripping (almost running) out of the left corner of air handling unit. Help???

You're correct in checking the drain pipe, because it's become blocked. The only trouble is, you're trying to clear the wrong end. The condensate water is spilling out of the air handler because that's where the pipe has a clog. These pipes usually have un-glued joints next to the air handler, for times such as this. If you can't pull them apart, you may have to cut the pipes and reconnect tham with fittings from the hardware store. (which is a normal procedure.) I usually use a wet/dry shop vac when repairing this problem, sucking out the clog & the water, then blowing out the line to where it drains outside. I've also used the clothes hanger technique to drag crud out of the air handler fitting. Hope this is helpful. ;)
