Moisture inside TV

I have a panisonic LCD TV... my son sprayed it with a mister (fine water mist) this morning. I wiped it up once I'd noticed, but I fear mositure is now inside the tv because there are some blackish streeks when I turn the TV on. I tried blowing it with the hair dryer and that seems to have helped a little bit, but not alot... is there anyway to fix this?! PLEASE

Sorry to say the info I was given here didn't prove as useful as I'd hoped. Thank you however to those who tried!!! I called a TV repair man and spoke to someone in person, this was much more useful.

Hi guys, I have got a spot on my Sony 40" LCD TV which i got when one of my cat urinated on the TV. its about 4 inch in diameter and is on the bottom right corner of the screen. Now my quest

moisture and electrics dont agree with one another. Could try

isolating from the mains and spraying lightly with car windscreen

de-icer (isopropanol) wipe off any excess and leave in a warm spot for

a few days....Might work if you are lucky

My son took a baby wipe to the LCD tv screen and now there is a purple streak I tried a damp soft cloth but that didn't work any suggestions how to clean the baby wipe off?

Try a 50/50 solution of water/rubbing alcohol and a micofiber cloth. DO NOT SPRAY THE SOLUTION ON THE SCREEN ITSELF but on the cloth then wipe down the screen. I hope the screen isn't damaged !!!

Replace distributor cap and coil

Ken ,you will have to replace the cap,but just for the heck of it,take the cap loose and if you have some silicone spray or w.d.40 spray the inside of the cap ,let it set for a few minutes ,wipe it out ,reinstall ,and redo a water test,with a water hose ,set the water nosel on mist ,do this while motor is running . it'll give you a little time until you get a chance to change it. and it will help you pin point the problem.

Car stops while driving somtimes starts and goes no problem, somtimes needs to rest for a few min then it it starts and goes so I drive home.

I had the same problem once, it turns out I had moisture inside my distributor cap, when it dries out it runs fine. I had a hose that was spraying a little mist on the cap. Also check for a cracked cap or just replace it.

We have an in wall air conditioner. I am not sure of the model #, but recently it has started spraying a fine mist back into the room. I removed the front of the unit this morning and found that the foam...

You could have a pin hole in your refrigeration line. The mist is probably the refrigerant coming out. Check the coil very carefully to see signs af any breaks. You may also have a bad drainage and the water is accumilating inside the unit. The fan blades can throw the water against the filter. Look inside for standing water. Good luck!

I have a 94 s10 tbi it runs fine when its completely dry out but loses all power when it rains or snows what is my problem

it is a spark issue.
im pretty sure these have a coil pack ignition.

when a coil pack gets old it may develop a crack and anytime moisture gets in the coil it kills the spark and the engine doesnt burn fuel like it should.

the way to check for a cracked coil is to start the engine and get a spray bottle full of water and spray the coils with a light mist of water. the engine should die down or quit completely if a coil is cracked. you will notice no difference if the coils are fine and the water will not damage anything.

if you have a cracked coilpack then it will need to be replaced accordingly.

Children sprayed water on 46" lcd TV, and it looks

Oh dear! I would check your household insurance if it was an accident, just in case a replacement is required.
Most items that get wet rarely recover without problems.
The water should not be able to get into the screen as it is a sealed. If the water has not entered the TV, you may get away with wiping the screen with an almost dry cloth that has dilute detergent on it, (washing up liquid and warm water is fine). That will remove the streaks.
Good luck!
