I spilled tea on my remote

Part of my remote works but not the ''most used'' parts. I stuck the hair dryer to it but it didn't seem to help. Am I going to have to buy another one? Thanks. Ann

    I have an Onkyo RC-570M Remote. It has a screw on the back that I removed but wasn't able to get the remote apart. I thought it might dry better with the remote apart. Got any suggestions?

    Thanks again,

    Ann

If the remote is still working you may try to take it apart and dry it out. Unfortunately the liquid inside can stick around for a while. If you let me know what Make of the remote I may be able to let you know how to disassemble the remote.

The other option is to order a replacement remote from this link.

As a last ditch effort (i really mean last ditch) i know of people who have taken the batteries out and put it in the dishwasher and let it dry for 3 days. Never tried it 1st hand so take it for what its worth. Best of luck to you.

MY GALAXY MEGA WONT CHARGE AFTER I SPILLED SWEET TEA ON IT. WHAT CAN BE DONE TO FIX IT?


Try taking the back off and dabbing away any moister in each half. Then use a hair dryer to dry the unit thoroughly, leave open for about 15 minutes then replace back and try charging again.

Unfortunately, even if you dried the system, the damage might already be done, and it's more than likely out of warranty due to liquid damage. My advice would be to contact Sony about a repair, sorry.

... continuing this suggestion ... my PC seemed to think I had finished my answer. I had not, I must try to complete it now. So I will try to pick up where I left off:

Do the hair dryer treatment for a few days. Once you have done it that way there are two more things:
1) Pray, and 2) Try to start this laptop again.

Remember that in a computer, especially a laptop, almost all parts are solid state of one kind or another. Which means tha so long as you treat things carefully, and do not try anything esoteric with the guts of the laptop, everything should be fine, once all has been dried out.

Given that all parts can be brought back again to a usable state, your patience and giving it the necessary time to dry out completely, your laptop should be resurrected, if given the time to do so.

Good Luck,
-a.

Got tea on my laptop


As i understand, the system seems to be working fine after the spillage ... there shouldnt be any issues other than the keyboard being sticky .
If the tea had seeped in then it could have fried the Motherboard. However , you could reach HP for support incase of any issues , if you tell them that the tea was spilled on the system then they might not cover the issue under warranty.

You will need to dis-assemble the remote and try to completely dry it out. You will need to remove the battery cover and the batteries. Inside the battery compartment should have very small screws with a phillips head. You will need to use a jeweler's screwdriver set to remove the screws. Then you should be able to use a flatblade screwdriver from the jeweler's set to seperate the remote control case. If the iced tea was sweetened with sugar then you will need to clean up the residue with rubbing alcohol and a q-tip after you have dried it out. Once the case is seperated you will need to shake out any excess water. Then use a can of compressed air or a air compressor to blow out the excess liquid from the remote. You can also use a hair dryer for this process. Once it is completely dried out it should start working again. You might need to leave it dis-assembled overnight so it can dry out completely.

My wife spilled tea on her Dell Inspiron 5100. Now when attempt to start up goes to a black screen with blinking cursor and beeps incessantly. What does this mean, and can I fix it?


add milk!
well spilling tea on the keyboard has most likely fritzed the circuit The beeping and blinking, depending on the number of beeps relates to no monitor and no keyboard.wich seems to fit your description of the fault without having to count
As for fixing it yourself? I wouldn't attempt it.. too many levels to wade through and an expensive fix. anyway. cheaper to buy a new one
Try making a claim for a replacement on your home insurance as a fusion claim. ge3t a new laptop. Perhaps the brands that was used at the Olympics that can sustain dropping and water spills. Vario I think it was.

Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA
