My wii balance board was submerged under water when my basement flooded. Is there any way it can be saved?


If you haven't turned it on since the accident...it might be possible. Firstly, you will need to try and get all of the water out of it as possible. I've heard that rice helps get water out of cell phones that have been submerged...but for a device that large, it would require a large box and a large bag of rice (a few pounds).

The problem is that if you try to turn it on while it's still wet inside it could cause a short circuit. Avoid turning it on until all the components are dry.

If you want to try the rice trick, find a large box to put the board in, then get a large bag of rice and dump it over the board. Leave it set for a few days. The rice soaks up the moisture. You need enough rice to completely cover the board so it can't be seen at all. I know it sounds silly....but it works with smaller devices.

Hi,

Follow these procedure to save or revive your phone, remove Cell Phone from Water: Time is of the essence when it comes to saving a fixing a submerged cell phone, as soon as you see your phone in water, remove it quickly! Every second matters do this step quick.

Saving the Battery: In order to save the battery on your cell phone after it's been wet, quickly take the battery out of the phone as soon as you take it out of the water. Buy doing this you will ensure that minimal damage is done to your battery.

Drying the Phone Out: Quickly shake your cell phone to get all of the water out and reach for the paper towels. Press down on your cell phone to make sure all of the excess water has come out. If you have accessories such as cell phone covers, take them off promptly otherwise water will still be stuck in your phone.

Saving your Info: If your cell phone takes a SIM card, quickly remove it before the phone dries. While you may still loose some of your information, you won't lose it all if you take the SIM card out of your cell phone in time

.Removing Excess Moisture: To remove the unseen moisture in your cell phone you will need to cover it with either Desiccant gel packs or rice. Desiccant gel packs can sometimes be found when purchasing brand new shoes or clothes. Make sure your cell phone is completely covered with either one of these for up to 3 hours.

Vacuuming: Take your vacuum hose and place it up to 4 inches away from your cell phone with it on. While this won't remove all of the water, it will certainly eliminate the big spots of water damage.

Turing the Phone On: After allowing your cell phone to sit a day or two with the power off, turn it on to see if it works. More than likely if you followed these steps as soon as your phone was submerged, it will cut on. If not, you will have to purchase a new cell phone because the one you have can't be saved.

Take care.

My Simer 2300-03 has been great except that it overheats after awhile. Too little water??


Yes. I recently used a similar pump (Flotech 1/6 hp) running for about 24 hours - but it came with this warning "don't use continuously unless submerged in at least 4 inches of water". This is because it will easily overheat, as yours has been doing. Mine worked for pumping water out of my basement (not the speediest little pump), but only because there is a sump hole in the floor where the pump could remain submerged.

Water in bicnoulars,how do I get out?


Hi, W/D here.
I only know of three ways: a hair dryer, a light bulb, or sunshine.
I use a hair dryer a lot to speed things up, and to thaw things and such. You can place the binoculars in a cardboard box, and place the hair dryer on low into a hole on the side of the box. Do not leave it unattended for obvious reasons.
I had a friend that was a jewler, and he removed moisture from watches by waving them slowly over a light bulb. Boring but effective.
You can place your binoculars in the sun, and let nature help. I'd put them in a cardboard box, and place the box on something that will gain heat. Garbage cans actually make excellent heat collectors. Orient tha box/can towards the sun, and change the position of the binoculars every half hour, or so, until they are fog free.
Best regards, --W/D--

My Chinon 10x25R binoculars have the same problem.


Simple use soft lint free cloth like old drying up cloth, you need about half a cup of methalayted spirits,can get this from any hardware store.
poke finger into cloth dip into meths proceed to rub sticky coating off binoculars. you will need to keep changing to a new peace of the cloth as soon as it gets coated with the sticky black stuff off binoculars.
keep dipping into meths eventually after say 6 rubs in a particular area you will see and feel a nice hard black plastic, continue all over effected area then finish off with any window cleaner polish until cloth remains clean.STICKY COATING IS NOW GONE IT WAS INFACT A COATING PUT ON THE BINOCULARS TO MAKE THEM NONE SLIP. job done. regards GER8

Binocular repair


Yes they can be but need to be completely taken apart and cleaned. The salt will corrode any metal parts such as screws etc. The water may have left a coating on the internal glass services. Any impurities in the water may cause fungus to grow. Professionally done this will cost a tidy sum so a quote would be best. The warranty wouldn't cover water immersion if they are not meant to be waterproof. You could ask but Minolta no longer make binoculars and have forwarded on their servicing here is the web address
http://ca.konicaminolta.com/support/contact/binoculars/

You may find that for the cost of repair you can purchase a replacement set. Minolta binoculars are heavily discounted now. For sentimental reasons I have paid more than a binocular is worth to have it repaired.

If you are going to buy a new set and still want to try at home....BE ADVISED this may RUIN the alignment and you should ONLY DO IT if you are going to replace them and DO NOT CARE if they end up in the rubbish bin. THIS IS A LAST RESORT THROW AWAY FIX.

Try and unscrew the objective barrels, the ones with the large lens. If they come off you should have access to the inside. If they don't unscrew easily stop. You will damage them. Flush them out with clean water and let them dry naturally. Avoid letting them dry where dust can enter the inside. This may clear the salt from inside them, Depends on how long since they were dropped into the water. The salt may have caused damage to the glass coatings. When dry, screw the barrels back on. You may end up with a double image. This may be able to be corrected by loosening or tightening the barrels. THIS IS A HACK FIX AND YOU SHOULD ONLY DO IT IF THE COST TO REPAIR IS TOO EXPENSIVE AND YOU ARE GOING TO REPLACE THEM.
