You can take the screen apart or you can use a vacuum cleaner to **** out the water and then put it in a bawl or tub with rice in it, so that the rice sucks out the moister.

New laptop touch screen erratic after cleaning

Sounds like static to me. was the laptop off when you cleaned the screen? Remove battery for a little bit use a paper towel or tissue to wipe screen down. Replace battery turn back on and calibrate screen. I hate using screen wipes. I just use small amount of water on "imitation chamois" cloth. They don't seem to create static. Hope this helps.

How do i fix a black corner on my laptop screen?

You damaged pixels in the LCD screen, Camilia. The answer is No. You have to replace the LCD screen.

[There are statements made, that a warm water damp clean cloth, can be used to gently massage the 'afflicted' area. Ummm, No.
Drip ANY water inside, and Poof! Bye-bye laptop AND LCD screen.

(Yes, even with ALL power removed. To include the CMOS battery inside. { RTC battery } Water droplet/s could still be present when power is reinstalled )

Statements made about gently using a pencil eraser on the area.
Compresses the layers of the panel, and forces oil to move around.
Does NOT always work, and may damage the LCD screen further ]

How tough is it? Doesn't take a rocket scientist. (Sorry Gort)
It's like doing an easy puzzle.

Example using an Asus K53U laptop,

1) ALL power is removed. Remove the AC adapter, and Battery.

2) Open the laptop. Remove the Screw Covers from the LCD Panel Bezel.
(The thin plastic frame in front of the LCD screen )

Screw Covers may be flat small pieces of plastic, or rubber covers.
Both will have a type of rubber cement on them. They are carefully removed with a pick type of instrument. (I use a computer pick)

They are then, one at a time, lightly stuck to the bezel, so they can be reused later.
Then all Philips head screws under the Screw Covers, are removed.

The LCD Panel Bezel has protrusions formed out of it's plastic body, and they surround the outside edges of the bezel. These are Tabs.
They snap into Latches, formed on the inside edge of the Display Cover.

The method to remove the LCD Panel Bezel, is to use your fingernail on the inside top edge/middle, of the bezel, and flex it slightly up away from the LCD screen. Then move your fingers along under the bezel on each side at the top, and pop the Tabs out of the Latches.

A thick guitar pick does help immensely. Use care when removing, but be aware that the bezel is made of space-age plastic. Snap, snap, snap, when the Tabs are freed from the Latches. Almost sounds like you are breaking something, and is a slightly tense situation for your first time.

Unplug the cable (Wire/s) from the screen Inverter, IF a screen Inverter is used. Usually mounted to an area at the bottom of the LCD screen.

If it does not use a CCFL for a Backlight, and uses LED's for a Backlight, it will not have a screen Inverter.
(Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp)

Average example of a screen Inverter,

(Approximately 3 to 4 inches Long, 1/2 inch Tall )

Lay the bezel aside. The LCD screen has a metal frame around it. Looks like a thin picture frame. On each side of this frame are Brackets. The screws are removed that hold the brackets, to the LCD Screen Frame.

Then the LCD screen can be tilted forward, and Video Cable removed.

The Video Cable's connector on the LCD screen side, has two Locks on each side usually, that you depress in, in order to unlock the video cable connector, and unplug the video cable from the LCD screen.

Reverse steps to reinstall.
Note that on the example for LCD screens, just the manufacturer code number is stated, not the laptop.
Look at the back of the LCD screen you removed, and match up the correct numbers.

How to drain water spill on laptop's lcd screen

Set up a thick towel on the table, open laptop and carefully lay LCD face down so more water can drain, don't forget to remove main battery and unplug the adapter. I strongly recommend having a computer repair shop strip it down for water damage and cleanup.

Coffee got spilled on my laptop keyboard. The laptop seems to work fine all except for the keyboard. When I push the keys, something different shows on the screen other than the letter I pushed. Like if I...

How to Fix Spilt Liquid on bda25ce.jpg?
You accidentally knocked fruit drink or a late night glass of milk on your laptop or your child spilled a good portion of milk directly into your keyboard. You hear a popping noise, the screen goes black. Water by itself is not as bad as milk or juice, both of which are corrosive/acidic, or coffee, tea, soda, etc.
First and most important -Calm Down and unplug the computer from its power source.
Disconnect it from the power cord and remove the battery. If needs, please remove the keyboard. The old adage - Water and Electricity don't mix - is quite true. For your laptop spilled water, let your laptop dry. Do not attempt to turn on the computer for at least 72 hours. Let it sit in a cool, dry place. If you disassembled the laptop, reassemble it after 72 hours have passed.

In my apple laptop,, lots of dust particals seems on the screen. how to clean scrren of laptop ???

  1. Spray the screen with an LCD cleaner for Flat Panel Monitors and Notebooks. These are found in a computer store and do not contain alcohol or ammonia which are found in most commercial glass cleaners. The products are advertised to cut through finger prints and other hard to clean residues. Follow the manufacturer's directions on the package for best results.
  2. Wet a towel lightly with water and wipe the screen down. Be gentle so you don't damage the screen.
  3. Clean the screen with a water-soap mixture. Wet a towel with water and add a small amount of soft liquid soap. Wipe down the screen. Use a second water-only towel to remove any left over soap residue.
  4. Clean with hexane. Hexane is a chemical made from oil and when mixed with solvents is used in a variety of mediums. One use is for cleaning. It is colorless yet has a strong smell. Use with caution.
  5. Clean the laptop screen with Petroleum Benzine. Petroleum Benzine is another colorless substance that is highly flammable. It has a potent smell, but is often used to clean laptop screens.
  6. Ask the computer experts at your local computer center what to do if none of these steps are working. Places like Best Buy's Geek Squad can answer any further questions you may have to clean your laptop's screen.

Water was poured on the keyboard. Battery was removed immediately and wiped dry as was the keyboard. Keyboard was placed under the fan upside down for approximately 2hrs after which battery was replaced...

First thing is to not try powering the laptop on after the water fell on it. Next, you should remove the battery off the laptop immediately. When this is done, you should fully disassemble the laptop & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of water on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, water damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no water seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.
If the water fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

Hello sir i need help i have problem woth my screen monitor my laptop axtensa 4620 z i try to clearn the screen . then went i turn is on the screen is black

Sorry you are having trouble. To help you I will need more info. What did you clean it with? When did this happen? Try this turn it upside down and see if any water or liquid comes out. My guess is that there is water or other liquid inside. This might require a trip to the shop to remove the liquid.
