Soda in tablet

This tablet could be repaired, most likely the LCD screen needs to be replaced and power and volume buttons may also need to be replaced.
This is not a easy DIY job and you need to send it away for repairs. The repairs may not be a cost effective solution, it maybe better to put your money towards a new tablet.

Spilled soda on my camera sticky lens

Buy lens cleaner, to wipe off what you can, but in truth the lens should be dis-mantled to clean it properly not to mention the rest of the camera.

Passenger window will only go down from drivers door after hitting the button repeatedly. Works fine from the passenger door

One or both of the switches are bad. Check fuse's and relays to be sure. Make sure both switches return to "neutral" when released. Perhaps a soda or other sticky substance was spilled on the switch.

First my R button of right trigger button gets jammed Second my screen is cracked Third my games cd over breaks where it's not playable

at times debris and foreign substance will get in past the trigger, if you spill soda it will also make the button sticky, there are several ways to fix this problem , one would be to take the controller apart by onscrewing 6 small screws on the back of the controller, just remember how you took it apart and if you have a problem ask an adult to help you.

Spill soda on my laptop keyboard

It is likely the only problem is that the soda is causing the keys to stick. There is probably no damage to any other internal components. Usually, laptop keyboards have a metal-based frame/tray that will protect the internal components from minor spills.

If you want to get rid of the cracking sound, you'll need to purchase a replacement keyboard from the laptop manufacturer or another source such as eBay, and then remove the sticky keyboard and replace it with the newly purchased one.

Sharp calculator

I had the same problem happen to me. What I did was carefully take the calculator apart using a T-10 Torx screwdriver to remove the back cover. I then used a compressed air can and blew air into all the crevices and holes in the calculator. I was able to dry almost all of the soda the spilled, however some of the soda dried and turned into somewhat of a sticky mess. I was able to carefully wipe the sticky parts clean with a tissue. After doing all of that my calculator worked perfect.

Let it dry for at least a week. Do not touch any buttons. If it is at all sticky (say you spilled soda or something on it) submerge it first in rubbing alcohol. Set it plug end down and just pretend it doesn't exist. Don't try anything with it. It MAY work a week from now if nothing was damaged. Playing with it now, while there's still water, may cause it to short out though.
