Spilled soda on it, screen doesn't work now...

I spilled about a teaspoon of soda on my laptop on the edge of it and it leaked in throught the vent on the side and got on my motherboard and under my wireless card and my modem card/thingy. I opened it up and let it dry out and this fixed the problem of my computer not turning on... but it works fine now-- just no picture on my screen... when I hook up a monitor to it it works great, not slow or anything, just no picture on my screen on the laptop! I don't know what to do now or what might be wrong with it... it's a Inspiron E1705... there isn't a category for this one, or at least I didn't find one... Thanks for your help!

1/4 teaspoon baking soda equals how many milligrams?

A teaspoon is a measure of volume, where as a gram is a measure of weight. A teaspoon holds 5 millilitres, and if it was distilled water, that water would weigh 5 milligrams. There is a difference in density of water and baking side, a powder. It would be approximately 1.25 grams. That is one point two five grams, a gram and a quarter.

How many teaspoons of baking powder equals one teaspoon of baking soda?

I'm by no means a baker, but the two are different. However, you can substitute, but you may not get what you are looking for and have to modify the recipe in other ways.

Generally, you will need 3 teaspoons of baking powder to equal a teaspoon of baking soda. But the baking soda is a base, and the baking powder is more neutral, so you may have to reduce the amount of acid in the recipe.

The following article explains it well.

Water leaking model is ge tfx22kr

There are there models different letters after the KR. So I'll cover all.

Can be water hookup in the back, the water filter 0-rings can be old and have a small leak.

The ice maker could have ice stuck in the chute.

The door dispenser, under the plate could be full of water from spills.

The freezer drian in the bottom could be blocked, here is what the manual states-
Duringyearly cleaning, remove bottom freezerbasket and flush a solution of baking soda-1 teaspoon (5 ml) and 2 cups (500 ml) ofhot (not boiling) water- through the drain line with the help of a meat baster. This willhelp eliminate odor and reduce thelikelihood of a clogged drain line. If drainbecomes clogged, use a meat baster andbaking soda solution to force the clogthrough the drain line

Just below the doors is a long face cover, this pulls off for cleaning the cooling fins, a appliance brush is needed for cleaning. Check to see if there is a removable pan for the drain after cleaning the drain.

I would also get the brush and clean the fins carefully, this keeps the fridg working efficiently.

The reason there is nothing on taking out the pan all the time, is because the amount of water that normally comes out, evaporates so it doesn't need emptying.

Spill on key board and now the letters are not typing

If you spilled water then shut off the laptop NOW and let it dry out for about 3 days. If you spilled soda or juice then you will probably need to have the keyboard replace. Hopefully the liquid did not get to the motherboard or then you might have to have that replaced also.

Spilled soda down my laptop... now all I get is a black screen

Yes, unfortunately that is what happened. Soda is the worst on a motherboard.

Refrigerator leaking water on floor under it!

The leak is most likely coming from the defrost tray below the evaporator coils. A piece of ice or something is preventing the water from draining to the pan below your refrigerator. Unplug and remove the back panel inside the freezer. Any blockage from that tray will cause the water to pool out into the freezer or fresh food section. Thanks, Sea Breeze

Spill soda on my laptop keyboard

It is likely the only problem is that the soda is causing the keys to stick. There is probably no damage to any other internal components. Usually, laptop keyboards have a metal-based frame/tray that will protect the internal components from minor spills.

If you want to get rid of the cracking sound, you'll need to purchase a replacement keyboard from the laptop manufacturer or another source such as eBay, and then remove the sticky keyboard and replace it with the newly purchased one.

I spilled soda on my screen and now it turned green. my computer is a hp pavilion tx 1000

Hard to tell without opening the laptop up. Depends where the soda got to. Alot of times it could be an inverter ($70-$150) or could be more serious like a new LCD Screen ($400+) and/or Motherboard ($$$+).

I would take it somewhere you trust that has a small diagnosis fee so they can take it apart and see what the soda has gotten too. Then you could decide if the cost is worth it.

Hope this helps.
