Viao got wet with apple juice

I spilled apple juice in my laptop bag while my laptop was in it. The back was kinda wet and when i opened it there was nothing inside so i know it didnt get on the keyboard. i then tried to boot it and it started up with the viao logo, then the loading windows bar, then the blue screen of death... then it restarted itself saying there was a system error and to choose what mode i wanted to start in... i turned it off and then put it in front of my fan to dry... about 45 minutes later i turned it on and it worked. i didnt use it,i just turned it off. Now 2 hours later i went to turn it on and the same problem as above with the blue screen is happening. I unscrewed the back to open up where my ram is and there were a couple of tiny drops but they were on the plastic and i dabbed them off. let it dry for another 30 minutes and it is still doing the blue death... im guessing i just need to wait it out... but i dont know what to do!!! Help please!!!

You need to dry out electronics immediately after a spill power off and battery out. If not you will short something and the first few boots it will at like it wants to work but all your doing it making it worse and watching it die

My Acer Aspire 5315-2326 laptop. Apple juice spilled on it I turned it off immediately and wiped it off and of course it won't turn back on. What else could I do? Or is it just gone?

The fact that any liquid spilled on a computer is almost a death sentence; is not always true. In some cases fluids only damage the Key Board. The keyboards are $25 on eBay. Replacement is easy.

My son spilled gatoraid onrange juice on my iphone 4s

If you have already tried using the iphone it might be too late to help. But I would try putting it into a bag of rice for a few days. Sounds dumb but it dries the iphone out. If it does not work after that its RIP Iphone 4S. Goodluck!

My daughter spilled juice on her cell phone, it can receive calls but she cant answer them because the touch screen will not work

You should never turn on any electronics that are wet.
  • Remove the battery
  • Place phone in a bag of rice
  • let it sit for 24/48 hours
  • Replace battery

Once it has dried out from the rice, you should be good to go, if you have not damaged it by powering it up while it was wet

I hope this helps

Now take ur battery out, clean the slots, clean the battery terminals, its socket..
leave ur lap opened in the same way for a while say half n hour of for 1 hour..
Now reattach every part u took out, and connect everything properly except ur battery..

I hope this works out..

Taken it back to your repairing shop, ask for brushing of the motherboard with CTC, and also proper cleaning of Cam and Sound points. Hope so this will work.

Toshiba L355D-S7815 - Spilled Juice - Short Circuit

Flip the lid open and flip the laptop (opened) and set it on a towel or something. It might take a week or a bit more to dry out. But you might be ok once it does dry out.

Although the best thing to do is to take it apart. And use a safe cleaner for circuit boards like alcohol (not wood alcohol).

Since you supplied power while it was wet. You could have have done permanent damage to the intergrated circuits. But let's hope not.

Dry it with a Blower , clean with a wet Soap cloth gently and then use Vaccum cleaner. If it not works, then press all keys with both Hands, and then reboot PC.
