Question about Garmin nuvi 255W GPS Receiver

1 Answer

If the device gets wet, is it fixable? If so, how?

Specifically, I accidentally spilled over a cup of Sprite last night. It was in the puddle in my console for a couple of seconds. I was at work, on break, at the time and could do nothing time consuming. It was displaying an image on the screen at that time, but the touch screen would not respond. This morning, I tried to see if it was working, and NOTHING. There is no longer an image available. Please help. Is it fixable, and if so, how?

H3 hummer wet and wont start


I'm not a Hummer mechanic but I would say it is related, and I would go on to suppose that the fuse panel got wet and caused your troubles. I hope you had a reputable glass shop install your glass because they will be responsible for any repairs and damages.

My Keurig Single cup sensor won't work. When I set a coffee cup in the craddle it doesn't recognize that the cup is there. Any suggestions?


This happened to me 2 weeks ago. I searched this site and saw no responses, so I want to answer now that I know what to do. Pull out, clean and dry the spill assembly the cup sits on. Dry the open area. Let it set for about a week or two. I live in CA (its very dry here). I was so happily surprised when I tried my Keurig again yesterday - it is working like NEW. I used to work for another small appliance maker so I knew that the sensor had become wet when the spill assembly filled to capacity. Hope you still have your Keurig and this solution works for you too!

Water?


The Cap and wires are most likely still wet (must have been a really large puddle). You can open the hood and try to air dry them or get a can of starting fluid and spray the cap and wires to dispel the water. Let the fluid evaporate and try to start the car. Best of luck.

My notebook does not turn on


Yea I would definitely wait for everything to dry out before diagnosing it......sometimes you get lucky and even though components got wet, after they dry the function......I would give it a day or two then try to fire it up again. If you get nothing , start troubleshooting

Quisnart DCC-2000 12 cup (leakage)


If the DCC-2000m is filled past the 12-cup mark, there is a spill gauge at the back that will allow the coffeemaker to keep the cup count exactly at 12 cups.
