Question about Dell Inspiron 1501 Notebook

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!

    On my Inspiron E1705 it's the Fn Key and F8... This is how I'm using my laptop now... I hook up the monitor to the back of my laptop and hold Fn and push F8 until it shows up on the monitor hooked up... it never shows up on my laptop screen...

How to take apart canon pixma 432. Spilled soda in it, need to clean inside.


Hi Daniel,
Let me say, up front, that I am not a printer guru. My background is in biomedical electronics, but this procedure works in most applications. Take distilled water and pour a small amount into the area where the soda was spilled. Wait a few minutes to allow the water to dissolve the dried soda. Then pour in more distilled water to flush out the residual soda. Allow to dry. The water should rinse out the soda, and when it dries it will leave no contaminates of its own. This procedure works well on medical devices such as telemetry transmitters and cell phones that have been spilled on. I hope this helps. Thanks for asking Fixya. Dan

Is there anything to do for when soda pop gets in camera and it doesn't work


Its depend on the quantity of the soda or drink spilled on the camera you are using. Use the blower to dry the liquid and do not use it at least 10 to 12 hrs. Allow more time to drying.

Spilled soda in laptop,now screen has no light, can boot up and see dim image


That can be a hard one. It depends on where you spilled it on the laptop. You can also just wait and leave it on. Then turn it on and off a few times. Sometimes it will just start working again with no problems. The next day it might be fine. But if not, take it to an expert because you don't really know until you look under the hood so to speak.

Spilled soda on toshiba laptop m505, keyboard is not working. keys don't stick anymore but not working. what do you recommend to fix it?


You need a new keyboard. The sugar in the soda caused the damage and will further corrode the keyboard.

I would also recommend that you clean the area where the soda may have spilled to on the system board.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response

Thanks, Joe
