There was a small quantity of liquid that was spilled on the phone, which got cleaned right away, I think I might have pressed something when I was cleaning it. Is there a function that blocks you from pressing buttons, or it really is physical damage that needs replacing?

Have you tried replacing the batteries? Do you see any damage on the remote? Have you spilled any liquids on it? If the batteries have been replaced and it does not work, you may want to try reprogramming the remote control. If all that fails it may need replacement.
When you spill liquid on any electronics you have about a 50 / 50 chance of recovering it intact.
If you don't push any buttons and take OUT the batteries RIGHT AWAY, your chances improve significantly.
Then try to clean up as much of the spill as possible, opening up the case if possible and let it dry out for a MINIMUM of 3 days before reinstalling the batteries and trying it again.
If it doesnt work after that then its probably dead for good and you will just have to go out and get a UNIVERSAL REMOTE such as a ONE FOR ALL brand. They range in price from $15 to $100 depending on how fancy you want it to be.
Good luck and please comment back if this was helpful.
If it is dirt/dust etc then it won;t hurt it. If you spill a liquid on it then that is another matter. Depending on what was spilled it may be already to late to save it. Certain liquids such as coke contain acids that eat away at parts. Even if it is cleaned very quickly then the contact pads under the buttons may suffer damage and your buttons won;t work.
Basically you can disassemble to remote and clean/rinse with distilled water only. Then let dry for a few days and put it back together. Even tap water can contain things that will attack the parts inside so you need distilled water. A good bottled water will do.
9 out of 10 times the remote gets junked either from the spill or from the cleaning.
your remote is old and needs to be cleaned and rebuttoned(you can do this yourself) open up the battery panel and look for small screws to take of the case. you need to dust it out with compressed air. and reline the buttons. when you push down on the power button it probbaly is not making complete contact with the button, take a small thing and poke the power button without the buttons on. see if that works. if it turns on right away with direct pressure to the power switch then you just need to make sure your buttons are making complete contact. if that dont work then your circuit is screwed. you need a new remote or a new tv.
just water, tray is for defrost only nothing else happens with tray. make sure it is in right area to catch water (should see tube sticking out about inch or two) also look inside under crisper trays for drain hole to see if stopped up from moveing fridge, use straw or something small to push in to check ( it's just a drain) also make sure unit is clean under and on back, no dust bunnies ( use vacuum to clean)
Turn off your computer and let it dry out. Leaving the computer running will just cook the liquid and make it stickier. If you ever have a spill again, turn your comp off right away and let it dry out for a good week.
I spilled wine all over an old laptop of mine. Some buttons wouldn't work. I gave it to a friend who asked for it and she says it has worked great for her.
Give your comp a bit of time to dry out. Let it sit in the sun in a window for a week, then try to turn it back on.
If the above doesn't work, ask the guys at your local computer store what you could try to clean it.
what occurs with liquid damage is a cemical reaction. the fluid and the electicity create an alckaline which looks a lot like mould but acts like acid. when this happens it eats away at the components in the phone and eventually the phone dies or the prob persist until you just can't stand it anymore.
the more you leave it on, the more damage it can cause. it's chemical reaction, and sugars can do lot's of damage to elctronic circuits. you'll have to open it up and clean it, or send it to a lab.

The only difference for you is that the damage might be more local, and you might be able to treat it locally without risking getting more of it wet. try to isolate it and work only on the parts that got juice on them.
