Re: Water damaged TV

If the set was on most likely severe damage by the cold drink and are not that easy to remove. It won;t just dry up like water would but, will leave behind a sticky conductive substance on the board basically shorting it out. Count your losses and purchase another television.

Tv started making a fizzing noise and now it is clicking as well with a slight movement of the screen during the click noises, goes up and down in volume now for a few days

is the fizzing noise when the screen is really bright? if so the scan coils on the tube have come loose and need glueing down with nail varnish i know it sounds strange but it really works

if the fizzing is coming from the tv then you have whats called dry joints

and this will need to be resoldered or the tv will shut down if you can do this yourself then the best way to find them is to remove the back and turn the tv on its side turn on the tv and turn off the light you will be able to see the dry joints sparking on the baord

hope this helps

1 Answer jvc television, im watching then turn off have a power but sadly it has a line at the middle of monitor and turn off.

You have a vertical amplifier failure or dry solder on the vertical IC. When cold if the TV works for some time and then you are getting a thin white line in the middle of the screen after some time -- its a dry solder problem. The vertical IC runs very hot in the TV and develops dry solder after a few years.Will run when cold and switch off when hot.
Are you well versed with electronics to do the repair yourself ?. If so, revert back and I will guide you if you mention the TV model #.

Water leaked inside , no power, is there a reset button?

First of all I must how much water leaked inside and was it actually water or something else?

Most of the time if the set was off and you left it off for a couple of days the water would simply evaporate and the set would continue to work.

I have seen other things spilled into sets, like plant water with fertilizer or etc. that cause corrosion and will cause the printed wires, the PC board traces, to actually corrode and the set will fail. If that is the case then wait until it's completely dry and take it to a shop. If it's just a few corroded traces it will be easy to fix... if not then it might be a major repair depending on if something was actually damaged or not.

I dropped my remote to converter box in the water what do I do it is now not working


OK! Dropping the remote into water was not a great thing to do, however I have dried out remotes before with success. What you need to do is carefully take the remote apart completely and dry EVERYTHING inside and I mean everything! A couple of pieces of kitchen tissue work great!

Dry the rubber matrix with the buttons on, even the board....THE LOT!

When you have done this put it back together and with any luck it should work. Obviously there is no guarantee, but it has worked for me in the past.

I'll leave you with it and wish you all the best and post on this forum what happens!!!!! (:-)

Grandson spilled glass of water on top of tv and it poured inside the tv. We let it set for a couple weeks to dry out. Earlier today it came on picture & sound but when channel was changed it went off....

Was the tv on when water spilled on it? Or on standby? I would guess it does not matter now. I do not like to even try to repair a tv with water the problem can go almost any where. Really and truly your best fix for headaches is to replace your tv. Some may argue this but I know best.

Water can be very damaging to TV circuits when not dried up completely as soon as possible. Water causes corrosive damage to the printed circuits as well as the small components. It needs to be dried quickly, as with a hair dryer. Your set probably has suffered component or pc damage, and will probably have to be repaired by a professional. The cost of your repairs could approach replacement cost of your TV.

Problem with power. TV shuts off and on.

If the set switches ON when you shake it, or shake some wires inside (after opening the back cover) then in all likelihood you have a 'dry' or 'cold' solder.These are not easy to track, and so best left to a professional technician. call for a service tech.

Spilt Water

It dosent matter if it's on or off as these sets have what we servicers call a stand by power supply. The sets need a stand by supply to supply a voltage to the remote or microprocessor circuit to operate the remote section of the set. Also these supplys can have other supplys built into them and they are switched or always on . Im thinking that the instant the water hit the chassis you were doomed!! DOOMED I SAY.. LOL just kidding man. Ok best thing to do if your not a technician is dont take the set apart and look for something wrong. There are no serviceable parts in these sets and all your gonna do is see alot of small componets and most of the time you cant see when ones bad and theres alot of voltage in these sets, so i would tell the servicer what you did and depending on how old the set is maybe its still worth fixing. Sorry could not be of more assistance. Good Luck
