DON"T TURN IT ON AGAIN UNTIL YOU KNOW IT IS COMPLETELY DRIED OUT!!!!

Sometime electroncis can be salvaged if they are not turned on again until after they are dry.

The electrolytes...(sugars, salts) can cause the electric current flowing through the device to arc accross connections causing a short. It may be too late to save your iTouch, but for the future if you can dry out the device before trying to turn it on again with a blow dryer or napkins or whatever you have handy it may save it.

Try drying it out and then turning it back on...it may or may not work as the damage may have been done already.

I hope this helps you in the future. Good Luck!

There may be some water logs present in the phone which obstructs the functioning of the phone.

Never switch on the wet mobile,When the power goes to the circuit board it may short circuit the full mobile motherboard.DONOT put your mobile in charge when it is wet it may be very dangerous.

Cutting out in wet weather and No power steering in wet weather?


I sounds by your explanation, that the belt which drives the alternator is slipping when it gets wet.
When this happens the alternator stops charging the battery, and when battery voltage drops the engine cuts out and won't start due to not having enough current to supply electrons as well as starter motor.
Have the belt tension checked, as well as charging output of alternator, should fix it.

Hp 530 laptop = dead no lights/nothing...power supply reads 19.2 volts with meter.son spilled drink on keyboard..suggestions?


Remove battery and power. Take apart as much as possible. wash any wet/sticky parts in de-ionised water (as used for topping up batteries), allow to thoroughly dry before re-assembling and powering up. Leave at least 24 hrs to dry.

Try not to get circuit board too wet, but if it does not work then you have nothing to lose!


Liquid on keyboard can be very difficult to fix as damp gets under the membrane - even if computer works the keyboard may not but you could always use USB keyboard.
If you have any Silica Gel packets, put notebook and all parts in a plastic bag with them to absorb all moisture (but make sure no powder gets into the components).

Good luck!

Phone wont charge


Did you drop your phone in water? or do you live in a humid area?

Your phone was exposed to moisture. That red dot is a moisture sensitive piece of tape that changes colors when it gets wet.

If your phone still works, but the battery won't charge when connected to a home charger, you might try charging it in your car. Its a different type of current and may work with a somewhat damaged battery.

If that fails to fix the problem you may need to get a new battery.

Hope this helps

Hey


When my screen got wet, I took it to Verizon. If your water indicater doesn't show any water damage they will give you a free phone no charge.
The water indicater is located underneath the battery, Pop the battery off and if the little circle is red there is no water damage.
Hope this helps.

Wet phon


If the screen is working, your phone seems fine, however, you must take this phone to someone who knows how to open the phone and clean the IC. The drink must have gone inside the phone due to which the keypad is not working. For the iPod, it seems the battery isnt charging anymore. Thats why it won't work when not connected to the power. So, get the battery checked.
