Question about Toshiba CF36G55 36" TV

1 Answer

Grandson spilled glass of water on top of tv and it poured inside the tv. We let it set for a couple weeks to dry out. Earlier today it came on picture & sound but when channel was changed it went off. Took off back and vacuumed and cleaned everything. Made sure we did not unhook any wires or damage the board in anyway. We are getting power to it but now nothing is happening. Red light by on/off switch is flashing.

Was the tv on when water spilled on it? Or on standby? I would guess it does not matter now. I do not like to even try to repair a tv with water the problem can go almost any where. Really and truly your best fix for headaches is to replace your tv. Some may argue this but I know best.

How to take apart canon pixma 432. Spilled soda in it, need to clean inside.

Hi Daniel,
Let me say, up front, that I am not a printer guru. My background is in biomedical electronics, but this procedure works in most applications. Take distilled water and pour a small amount into the area where the soda was spilled. Wait a few minutes to allow the water to dissolve the dried soda. Then pour in more distilled water to flush out the residual soda. Allow to dry. The water should rinse out the soda, and when it dries it will leave no contaminates of its own. This procedure works well on medical devices such as telemetry transmitters and cell phones that have been spilled on. I hope this helps. Thanks for asking Fixya. Dan

My grandson spilled some water which got into my mitsibishi tv and created a black spot in the lower left hand corner. How can i fix this?

Take it apart and clean the dried water spots off. Its hard to say if it will work but that's the first thing I would try.

I think someone poured water in my TV is there any chance on saving it?

It's very possible. I guess I have been able to fix about half of them that I have worked on w/ water spilled inside. I would definately let a tech take a look and give you an estimate. It would be impossible to tell you which board the problem is on without checking it though. Does the set do anything at all now? Was the set playing when the water was spilled?

IPod touch Digital Media Player: my grandson dropped by Ipod touch in the toilet! t...

Well the screen can be fixed by sending it to apple or one of many other repair shops. The water is the hard part. Your best bet is to fill a zip lock bag with dry rice and put your ipod inside and leave it for a week and maybe the rice will pull the moisture out. Water is a killer but once it dries out, you might be lucky. In the end it may cost more to repair than its worth.

Water spilled inside 25'' Sanyo will not turn on

The water has already done its damage. Try leaving the set unplugged and drying out for a few days then try it again otherwise you will most likely spend more to repair than to replace.

2 stroke mower has fuel and spark but will not start

Sometimes water (condensation) can get in the gas. If your model has a bowl on the bottom of the carburator, loosen the bolt and ease the bowl down and take it off. You will spill gas out of the bowl but that's ok. look at the spilled gas while you're at it and see if you see beads of water... tell-tale sign of this as being the problem. I'd get a paper towel and dry the bowl out before reassembling. To make sure there's no water in the gas tank, you could loosen the fuel line, drain the gas into a container (preferably glass so you can see if there's water in the bottom of the container, afterwards). If there was water, you might swab the bottom inside of the tank out with a paper towel. Reassemble everything and put in some fresh gas. You might can re-use the old gas, just don't pour the water back in... ha.
I hope this helps... Good luck!
