Question about Samsung lt150x3-124 15 in. Flat Panel LCD Monitor
I left my laptop near the window and went out partying. It rained that night and my laptop got wet. My laptop was in shut-down mode but was connected to the AC supply. When I reached home, I wiped it with a towel and tried to turn it on. The power light would come on but the system wouldn;t turn on. I left it to dry the entire night. Next morning I kept it under the sunlight for a couple of hours. Again tried turning on. This time it would turn on but keybord wouldn't work. So I left it under the sun for some more time. This time I didn't see any display on the sceen but only multi-coloured vertical lines throughout the width of the screen and nothing else. I can't connect it to an external monitor as the keyboard isn't working and I can't change the default display. Should I let it dry for a few more days or is the LCD damaged because of the heat???? The notebook is Samsung R610
You tried your best in performing the first step (Leaving it out to dry)
But actually it is posible that the heat of the sun couldnt reach into some parts of the laptop and that some components must have been aftected before you came to its rescue
Apparently water or moisture was still resident in some internal part of the Laptop and this would have conducted some little spike of electricity that might have destroyed some components while it was connected to the AC.The flickers on the screen is an evidence of a possible spike from water or moisture.
Get a technician to open up the Laptop completely. He has to take a good look at each component carefully and clean them up.
Yes theres a possibility of your LCD being damaged but the VGA Card should be tested first.
Your Laptop would definitely come back to normal but not until each component is checked properly
