You broke it. The biggest mistake people make after spilling liquids onto electronic devices is to try and turn it on to see if it still works. You should remove the battery and not try to turn on a device until it has had several days of dry warm air around it to ensure all moisture is removed from the electronic parts. I would guess that if you spilled juice on it and it will now not turn on or respond in any way that unit will need to be returned to the manufacturer for repair. Even if it is in warranty they will know it has been "misused" and not honor the warranty. The HDD should be ok but most likely a PCB has died. You could try the accidental damage cover of your household insurance.

It might be stuffed, I'm not an expert, but an IT expert once told me to turn my mobile phone off and leave it in a bowl of rice for 24 hours...the rice absorbs the moisture and can sometimes recover the device that has been soaked....and it's cheap.

I spilt a glass of juice over my husbands keyboard and now it wont work properley! can i have this repaired for him or shall i just buy a new one?


Hi, Jenny.

If you are talking about an external keyboard, it's not worth repairing and easy to replace. A keyboard on a laptop is more difficult to replace, but also not worth repairing.

Since juice is acidic, the circuitry on the keyboard is probably destroyed.

Hope this helps.
