Not yet friend. You must use the hairdryer or such device without heat to dry the water traces inside. And also keep them in the sun for some time after hairdryer treatment. A modicum of water can burn off electronics and one should never leave anything to luck. Dry them up completely before plugging them somewhere.

Won't start, gas out of exhaust

Sounds like its flooded : excess fuel / wet spark plug.
Empty tank / Clean and dry spark plug. test plug for spark before refitting. If strong spark refit plug / and see if fires when turn engine over.
If it does then refill tank with new clean fuel and attempt to start without choke to avoid flooding.

How to fix a keyboard from wet??

You need to take it apart and clean the membrane with distilled de-ionised water and let it dry thoroughly before re-assembly. It can be a very fiddly job!

My wireless mouse connector went through the washing machine. Is there anything I can do, that it will still work?

dry it up completely with the help of a hairdryer without heat. Cool dry air going through it will dry it up and make it usable (I hope, as you have already tried to work it). I only hope you have not burnt it by trying to work it wet.

How to clean wet carpet in a car atfer a flood. this happen on yesterday in portsmouth, va. We had a storm which resulted in flooding, power outages, and trees falling down. water gotten in my car because...

You can hand shampoo it using clean water then hit it with a shop vac or other powerful wet/dry machine. It will eventually dry out. The problem is that moisture and odors will lay under it. You can take the whole carpet out of the car yourself and use a carpet cleaner, letting it fully dry before reinstalling. Generally this will require removing seats, consoles, and interior trim. If you are not experienced at this and don't have the proper tools, it can be a time consuming chore.

Otherwise contact a car/truck stereo installation shop. I find these folks are reasonable to pay for removal and reinstallation of the carpet and may also cheaply clean it for you.

Lastly you may just get a whole new carpet, look on ebay, and stuff that in there.

The keyboard skips about half of keys including spaces.Help!

This sounds like maybe the keyboard got wet or some food/liquid spilled on it. Is this on a laptop or desktop? If it's a laptop, try to dry it out, if not, have the keyboard replaced by a professional like me. If it's a desktop, spring for a new keyboard, they're only about $5-10.

After one 80 minute drying cycle, the clothes are still just as wet and the dryer lint in the lint screen is wet. It takes 3 cylces to dry clothes. I've already replaced the heating element. The dryer vent...

Depending on the make and model, you should have a temperature sensor somewhere on the heating element box. That may be malfunctioning. They are usually less that $10 USD and replacement is real easy. Simply unbolt the old one, pull the two wire from it, put the wires on the new one and rebolt it to the heater unit.

All keys in keyboard r no working

You can try but may be pure luck if it works: Cleaning the Keyboard with Vaccum Cleaner and blower. Also use a wet cloth and wet brush to clean it. Then dry it before use.

Power off PC and then Press all keys with both hands and then power on, have a try for Keyboard.

Otherwise it is the time to go for a new one, I would recommend to use a TVS gold keyboard having punching noise on it (similar to typewriter) than using a Multimedia keyboard (of soft keys press).

Since the former are repairable and the latter are not.
