Question about Televison & Video
Someone spilled what looks like 3 in 1 oil all over the circuit boards. Can it be cleaned with soap and water?
I would not recommend cleaning with water, however, if you do clean it with soap and water the board must be immediately dried with dried compressed air.
Any components that moisture can enter, such as unsealed adjuster pots, open variable caps, inductors etc must be avoided. When drying, pay particular attention to area under ICs and SMT components. In can be near impossible to remove all moisture from under these components. A bake in the hot sun for a few hours also helps to eliminat the moisture.
I think a preferred method would be to use a volatile inert solvent to clean the board.
Various commercial PCB cleaner fluids are available from electronic wholesale component suppliers. The board will still need to be dried with compressed air.
