Question about Sharp EL-1801P Calculator
Hi, I spilled coffee in a new Sharp desktop calculator this morning. Is there anything I can do to revive it. I have turned it upside down, sprayed it with the canned air and left it unplugged to dry. Is it hopeless?
I've wetted a wide variety of gadgets, and I've found that generally- not always mind you- leave it to dry for a few days, it could come right on. DO NOT plug in the machine until you're certain there's no remaining liquid inside, and when you plug it in do so at your own risk; be aware that some conductive mineral in your coffee might have been deposited inside, across a circuit and short the whole thing. A short may result in fire. You can make the process alot safer by plugging into a GFCI outlet (one of the ones with the breaker built in, like in a kitchen). I've had calculators and phones, cellphones, a playstation and even a network card survive a drop into water (and other liquids >
