If you didn't plug it in wet and you brought it in and gave it a few days to temperize and dry off. No. It shouldn't be damaged. Laptops have to live in all kinds of weather conditions so they have a bit of weather protection built into them.

Your owners manual should show the limits of temperature for operating AND storing your laptop.

What could the problem be for this? Have a treadmill that's been outside for a while. The cord was chewed up and I have replaced it, but it goes on for a couple seconds then turns off. What could the...

If it was outside, was it under cover? If it was not, then the console circuitry are corroded and not fully up to themselves. If it was under cover, same thing can happen. temperature and humidity, moisture and cold can also impair the performance of the unit. It may be a difficult problem to trace unless you can open the console and see for yourself the state of the printed circuit board/s. If it looks like silvery powder around the IC's (integrated circuits) pins, then tht's some air and moisture damage. If you live by the sea, same thing will happen on appliances left outside. And to find the cable chewed, looks like it's been outside for a long time and may definitely have rust on the circuit board, in other words - moisture damaged. If there is no silver rust (powdered ash-type rust) and the printed circuit board looks clean, then try and locate the treadmill manufacturer or its supplier websites and email them the problem you're having.

Nissan pathfinder problems

Check childproof lock if you can open it from the inside, but usually the connection between the handle and the lock for the outside door handle breaks.
if you can't open the door using either inside or outside door handles, go to a locksmith, auto electrician or a Nissan dealer or risk severely damaging the interior door panelling trying to do this yourself...
Please get back to us with the solution you found worked as it may help someone else in the future, thanks.

When i turn on my camera it makes a weird noise and then the screen is all blurry and ive never drpped my camera :/

Sounds like the camera was dropped, or got too HOT. If you left it in the car or outside in the sun the camera can get damaged. I would take it back to the place you purchased it for a pro evaluation on it to be sure. if you screen is blurry that usually means the CCD is damaged.

Screen damaged from fall, colored vert lines on left side from the damge

Unfortunately the LCD panel would need to be replaced. Even if there is not any signs of damage to the outside portion of the panel, one of the inner screens may have been fractured. I am not sure if the panel would be available because if i'm not mistaken Sharp just started making replacement panels.

1997 328 tail light failure


You should check the wiring loom on the left trunk hinge.
It gets damaged very often on these bmw's you won't be able to see if there is damage from outside, you need to pull the protective rubber covering pretty far down to inspect.

If it's damaged any decent audio shop can repair it (or you can do it yourself if you're good at soldering)

after it's fixed replace any burnt fuses and it should be ok

Hope this helps!
