Water spill on my AOC2216Vw LCD Monitor

Hi Tim,
I just saw a solution you posted for someone who inquired about a water spill on his notebook.  You said that it will eventually disappear?  Water just spilled on my monitor last night and at first, it doesn't seem bad, just a few stuck pixels.  Then, I started massaging the screen because I read in a forum that it might unstuck the pixels.  It actually made it worse as there are now larger patches of what seems to be water blotches. And to make matters worse, the water seems to be spreading.  The stuck pixels started on the lower right corner of the screen cause that's where the water spilled, and now, the upper left and right corners have blotches too.  And I believe some pixels are now dead as they can display nothing but white.  So, do you still think this can be remedied?

    Hey there! It's still no good. Water's stuck inside the screen. I just don't know how it will evaporate inside the screen. And site you gave me is the site that I googled and the massaging method is the one I used. I also tried dispalying different colors in quick succession but to no avail. Gosh, I just wanna kick myself. I have purchased it just 8 months ago. I can live with the current damage I just hope that it will no longer spread. Anyway, thanks again for your help and I will keep you apprised of my monitor's status.

    Hi again, turns out you were right I turned the monitor on last night and most of the stuck pixels were gone. There are still some stuck pixels here and there but I am really hoping that those will repair themselves in time. Thanks again!

Hey man, thanks for coming to me. Um yea, massaging may help but too hard will do damage since it is LCD is Liquid Crystal Display and it is fragile and easy to damage. The water should clear up in a few months, if not i would look at replacing it which can be costly. Here is a link to fix your unstuck pixels

Now im not liking that bit about how you mentioned was spreading so leave it for about two days, give the therapy for the screen a try and let me know if the laptop screen is healing. For the moment if you have one i recommend you hook up a VGA Monitor, old school stuff if you can and give the LCD a rest. I will post as a solution but comment back and i will keep helping you as much as you need it.

According to my translation your question is:

"I would like to know the price of water for cutting ceramic tiles"

Your best bet is to figure out how much water you will require and then call the water company to inquire what the charges would be for that amount.

Tim,

At first blush it sounds like the water valve that supplies water to the ice maker is sticking or leaking and letting too much water in.

If you can, watch how much water fills into the ice maker tray (very boring stuff). If it overfills the icemaker tray, then the water valve or timer is malfunctioning and needs repair or replacement.

Got spilled by water


Uh, oh, sounds bad, probably didn't get all the water. Also, you really have to open things up and let dry for several days(I leave things dry for a week, before attempting to power up). Open it again, do it quickly, I've never used a hair drier before, hum, I'd just leave it opened up(as long as it was just water that is). You need to get it opened up as completely as you can. Just try not to get impatient with it.

If you spilled water all over your laptop and its loading but not displaying you have damaged at least the inverter board and probably more. If it is booting up and you think it is ok except no display, you can verify this by attaching an external monitor and see how if at all the laptop is performing

IBM T30 won't boot with LCD, but will boot OK with external eonitor


It means computer developed oxide on some contact, and this is causing a short that forces unit to shut down, laptop must be taken apart, dried properly, and eventually cleaned with circuit cleaning solution.
If problem stops when you turn to external display, then probably it is water or oxide in LCD ribbon cable connectors.

Monitor not showing anything


Man your toast. Google JB Technologies, they specialize in laptop repair. Good thing you admit the water thing b/c alot of latops have a special chem on the motherboard that changes color if exposed to water or liquid.

You might try to blow out the heat sink/fan for the processor with some canned air. It's possible that the lcd is having issues (backlight/inverter. How long does the lcd work normally before it goes bad? thanks

Hi Tim, there was a service flash out on this model which has to do with the circuit board in the dispensor. Frigidaire has redesigned this board causing your problems. This should be covered under this service flash. The number of the service flash is 46-470. The solution is to replace the water filter and dispenser board. Contact Frigidaire and inquire about the service flash. Refers that were included in this flash have the serial numbers between LA113---- to LA146----. If yours fall into this range you should be covered. Circuit board kit number is 240533603. Your model is included in this flash...Catriver..post back.
