I've just experienced spilling a lot of coffee ( almost half of the small size coffee at Tim Horton's) on my Wacom Bamboo.

I opened it and wiped the coffee.
Then I sprayed a small amount of isopropyl alcohol 99% on a towel and wiped the sticky liquid that was left. Then I let it dry for an hour and a half or two.

Now it's assembled and it works perfect !

No need to tell you I'm happy :)

Good Luck !

Judie,

Sorry for your troubles. If the device was plugged in when the water was spilled, and the water worked its way inside, there is a possibility that the unit shorted out.

However, you can try to unplug the device, try very hard to shake any water out, and give it a few days to dry. Then you can try to use it again. Hopefully, it was not permenantly ruined, but it just may be.

Hope this helps!

Where can i get a wacom bamboo tablet?


You can buy them new from places like Amazon or directly from Wacom. Just to confuse you more-- it used to be Bamboo, Intuos, and Cintiq. Now the entry level tablets are the Intuos, the mid-level has become the Intuos Pro, and then the Cintiq.

if it looks like this, standard usb cable.

There is also a micro 5 pin, used on most new cellphones.

or it could be a mini usb used for most cameras.

Spilled tea on computer 7 repair technician says we need the motherboard


Did you saw the tea entering on the main motherboard? Did it worked after tea spilled in it? Water or any solution which contains water in it, which have short circuit on electronic boards, so it might had been damaged. Other important thing is, the computer motherboard contains microchip which is most likely to get damaged in small presence of small amount of water entering in it. So think twice about the amount of spill and then apply some idea, is the technician giving right diagnose, or you need another tech for this problem?

Water won't come into the dishwasher


The anti flood system could have been triggered due to a water leak or spill at the bottom of the washer, This device (polysireene float and micro switch) when triggered shuts off the inlet water and puts the washer in pump out mode only. Use a torch and check if a small amout of water is causing the float to trigger the microswitch attached to the float. If a small amount of water leak / spill is causing this you need to first fix the spill / leak. before you try again.

Laptop speakers not working after water spill, everything else is ok


You stated 'a small amount' and if this is the case, I would leave the power off for a few days, sitting in a warm place to see if your audio returns.

If your water is not too saturated with minerals making it conductive and operating it wet hasn't done any damage, you may luck out.

I have cured some nasty spills (cat urine anyone?) by bathing the device in warm distilled water and allowing it DAYS to dry before restoring power.
