Question about Dell Inspiron E1705 Notebook

1 Answer

Spilled soda on it!! No picture!

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

    Is there any way to fix the wiring? Is it an expensive fix... I know soda can be used to clean rust off of stuff and clean toilet stains...I was very scared when I spilled it... and it was Diet Dr. Pepper... potent soda! Lesson learned...my complete care warranty just expired in October... ugh!

    I finally got it fixed about a month ago-- it was the video card! That's it! Lucky for me there is a video card built into the mother board! Cost me all of $25!! But I have to admit My picture is a bit lower quality- the guy said I wouldn't even notice the difference... but you can...Thanks for the advice!

    repairing the wiring is not that big deal..but if you may have damaged the motherboard then the thing is goin to be little expensive.

I spilled soda on my Macbook Air yesterday. Today, two of the buttons are jammed together. What do to? Help!


You have to be gentle but you can use a tech sized screwdriver and pull the key off. From there you can clean if up a bit more thoroughly.

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

Soda was spilled on sharp el1179p


do not power on the device, it is crucial that you leave it to dry and as soon as possible put it in a bag of rice. The rice will absorb the moisture in the device. You should give it about two weeks (the longer the better) and you should have completely removed all battery components at this point if there are any. After a generous waiting period of two weeks or so, take it out of the rice and give it a try. I spilled a full 8 oz cup of hot coffee RIGHT into my laptop keyboard and it immediately shut off but I followed the above steps and I am using it right now just fine and it is a year later. Good luck!

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 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
