Water down the front of the screen and the tv turned off and it won't turn back on. Will it dry out and turn on later?
I was watering my plants and some water ran down the front of my 4 year old, 32" RCA tv screen and it turned off. I am now not able to turn it back on using either method, tv buttons, or my romote control. Will this dry and turn back on eventually? What can I do?

Re: water down the front of the screen and the tv turned...
Its not good remember water and power does not mix most likely shorted some parts if you do take this set to tv shop make sure you move the plant to a diffrent location okay when the tv is on it has all diffrent voltage okay when you add water to a printed circuit board its not good take to tv shop see what they say i prbally would not waste the the money on a repair when you can buy a tv w/ a warrany okay have a good day

Tomato plants tend to develop blossom-end rot when they receive uneven amounts of moisture. For example, plants that go from being too dry to too wet, then back, are susceptible to the disease. To prevent this, water your tomatoes regularly. Removing affected fruit can prevent blossom-end rot from spreading to new tomatoes. Tomato plants need 1 inch of water per week, on average.
Just open the TV after disconnecting it from AC wall outlet. Us a hot air blower to dry it out. Wait till all water has been evaporated out, and then plug it and see, whether it works. If not, contact any service technician to make it right. If
you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you sufferfatal electrical shock!
Instead, contact the nearest service center.
this happened to my D3111 and, sure enough, there was a split in the water outlet hose and the water overflow raised the polystyrene float block. 6 months later th same symptoms occurred but the inner base was dry. I took off the lower front panel under the door and found the water level (3 terminal) microswitch had burnt out, probably from running too long. Easy to replace if you can hunt down the $2 switch (brand name Zippy, 6 AMP)
Flat screens should never be washed. You should only wipe it with a lens cloth or lint free duster. The tv will not work until it has completely dried. I suggest that you leave it switched off overnight and then try again.
Your two issues may be related. A combo washer / dryer uses a fine spray of cool water to condense moisture out of the air stream while drying. This water is then pumped down the drain. Cold water is also used to fill the softner dispenser. If the inlet screen on the cold water connection to the machine is restricted, those are two of several things which could show up. Turn cold water valve supplying water to machine off. Unscrew cold water fill hose from machine. Remove screen from inside machine, clean, re-install, re-attach cold water fill hose, turn cold water valve back on and see if performace improved.
Turn the TV off imediately. Remove the back cover and heat up the wet area with an hair dryer to thoroughly dry the board. Then try tv again.If it doesnt solve the problem look for the board that the speaker wires connect to and replace that board..You should be able to buy online.
My 2730 would not calibrate. I saw this on a forum and it worked like a charm.
1) Fill a bowl or sink with warm water and a small amount of neutral soap. AJAX worked for me!!!! 2) Turn the SP2xxx screen down towards the water and immerse the front of the unit in the water. 3)
Using a *soft* toothbrush, *gently* clean around the frame edges of the
screen. With care, the soft bristles should dislodge any foreign object
that may have become lodged between the screen and the unit case. 4) Rinse the front of the unit under running water. 5) Gently dry the outside of the unit with a soft towel or cloth. 6) If desired, leave the unit in a warm airing cupboard overnight to completely dry out.
up the unit and try it out! All reports I've read elsewhere reported
that the touch screen worked again after this process. If it fails, you
were going to send it back to Garmin anyway so you haven't lost
anything by trying it. This worked and I plugged it in right after with hair drying on cool for a couple minutes.
my celing was leaking like it was raining out side, but my son ran some bath water and for got he turn the water on and left it ran all over the floor, and i'm down stairs watching the water come down full speed on my big scren tv,i tried drying the tv with a floor heater from front to back wake up the next morning tv still dosen't come on.. what can be the problems,............... please you can reach me at Queenlicious100@gmail.com. i really ned to no i love my tv
Water can be very damaging to TV circuits when not dried up completely as soon as possible. Water causes corrosive damage to the printed circuits as well as the small components. It needs to be dried quickly, as with a hair dryer. Your set probably has suffered component or pc damage, and will probably have to be repaired by a professional. The cost of your repairs could approach replacement cost of your TV.
I suggest you sit down for this one! Even a small amount of any liquid on set's internals can reak havoc. What you smelled were components shorting out and possibly burning. Depending on where the water spilled, you may have just one PC board fried, but many circuits are interconnected, which means possible cascade damage to others. Never place plants anything containing liquid on electronic equipment.
