Question about Microsoft HP Pavilion DV6276US Notebook PC

1 Answer

Spilled diet coke on laptop. Buttons light up but the screen remains black.

I have a HP Pavilion dv6000 Notebook. Diet coke spilled on keyboard and under the computer. I thought it was dry and it continued to work. Gave error message unidentified hardware in serial port. Flashed message several times. I turned off the computer to resolve the issue and it would not shut off. So I removed the battery. I noticed it was still a little wet in areas. Dried it again. replace battery. When pushing on button the computer beeps a couple of times all lights come on but screen is black. The on/off switch blinks green. Please help.

Disconnect your battery and neveeeer turn it on. It must be, no power is connected to it. Then bring your unit to a authorized repairer.

They will clean it and have it dry, check others. This will gonna involved disassembling the unit.

Dell Latitude D600 Laptop - Freezes when battery plugged in.


Hi,

It's highly unlikely that it's the battery that's at fault here as you have already explained what has happened here.
By the sounds of what you have done it is the diet coke which has done some damage here.

It has probably seeped through the keyboard and has got onto the components that regulate the charge to the battery.

You would have to completely disassemble the laptop and clean all of the sticky coke from all the components inside the laptop. It won't work properly until you have cleaned the motherboard and all other circuit boards that connect to it.
Once it's cleaned the battery may start to charge properly again.

If you need anymore advice please post back.


Regards.

Coke spilled on to the keyboard for my laptop, but i still can turn it on and the mouse will work but the keyboard won't, i took off the keyboard to dry under it and put it back together but keyboard still...


Take it to the closest computer repair shop... And have them clean your laptop... Maybe the coke short circuited something on the board, and now it doesn't work ...
