Water Damaged lcd tv?

My 3 year old sun took a water gun to the tv. Before I'd noticed, some of the water had gone in through the bottom of the screen. Everything was fine and functional. The next morning, dark circles stared appearing at the bottom of the screen.. there are eight dark spots on the bottom of the screen and one at the top. Is there any way we can get these to go away or are we better off having to spend to buy a new tv? This happened three weeks ago, and the tv was bought two months ago.

    Hello. My 3 yr old also shot water into my new 26 inch lcd tv. I didn't know about it but I was told it happened over 2 weeks ago. Now the screen has mixed straight lines and icicyles shaped lines coming from the top - lines of mixed colors and thin straight lines coming running vertically.

    Is it possible that shutting it down for a few days now with a fan turned on it may dry it out and correct the problem? I really do appreciate this forum. blessings

Hello lilcrozzyjc,

I got bad news, your son may have damaged the LCD itself since any water damage would have dried up over the three week period. To replace the LCD screen may cost the same as a new set. What I would suggest is that you take the Tv to a qualified Tv shop and have them check it. Be prepared to hear a high cost for repairs, due to the fact that the LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screen might be damaged. I know this is not what you want to hear, but have the shop try to locate the cause of the problem and they might be able to suggest another recourse, such as by chance if the LCD screen actually is not dried out and the water is cauing a problem. In any event you will have to take the TV to a qualified TV shop.

I hope this helps,

Thank you

We have a Samsung 40" LCD and one morning we switched the tv on. There are green outlines that are all over the tv. It is almost impossible to see. Our lounge is really cold in winter. It resembles water damage. Could it be water damage?

Water vapor coming out of an exhaust pipe is normal especially when car is cold and pipes are cold. After complete heat-up vapor will appear clear.
It is unlikely that any water could get in your crankcase but you took the extra step to ensure the oil is clean. There was a lot of water in the engines intake and that is what you concentrate on. Dry the top of the engine in the hot sun, after removing all the pockets of water in the intake air system. Add some dry gas and injector cleaner to the gas tank and drive the car enough to clear out any latent moisture. Only if the water damaged a MAF Air Sensor will you need to buy or replace anything. It should start clearing itself up.

My fisher price aquarium bouncer need more water

We refilled the tank ourselves with the following equipment:
phillips screwdriver, flathead screwdriver, heat gun, glue gun (or epoxy), big sterile syringe, sterile water
1. remove toy bar so it’s no longer getting power
2. unscrew screws in the white part of the toy bar and open it up. Note the positions of the kick toys and buttons, which will probably fall out while you’re trying to refill the tank.
3. on the upper part of the tank, search for the plug for the hole for filling the tank. It’s sealed on with something like epoxy or hot glue
4. CAREFULLY blast the plug with heat gun until the sealant is soft enough that the plug can be pried off with flathead screwdriver
5. use the big syringe to top off the tank with more water.
We noticed that the old liquid in there made swirling patterns where it met the new water; we reckon that the old liquid might contain something like glycerin to make it more viscous, or preservatives to keep it from getting yucky
6. reseal the plug onto the tank with hot glue or epoxy… actually we lost the plug so we filled a small plastic button with hot glue and stuck that on… time will tell whether it does a good job sealing the water in
7. try out the toy bar in the seat and rejoice if it works!
8. take it out again and replace the buttons and kick toys (orange fish goes on the right hand side, from infant’s point of view. The fish face in, towards each other.) Close up the toy bar.
Hope that helps keep some of these excellent toys out of the landfill!

My 3 year old shot water at the screen of my LCD tv. Showed the picture for awhile, then went white, now there are multicolored vertical lines. Will it dry out? How can I repair it?

lines in the screen means the screen itself is bad and would need to be replaced. No other way around it. If your TV is still under warranty you may want to contact Samsung and try to get it replaced thru them but if they see any damage they won't cover it so keep that in mind. Here is there tech support number:

Water collecting under crisper drawers.

When the refrigerator goes into defrost mode there is a drain tube that allows water melted off the evaporator coil to go into the drain pan that you found empty. That drain tube is clogged.

The dots cannot be rectified, static dots of this kind on an LCD panel are dead pixels or liquid cristal leaks, depending on their hape and aspect.

The only fix is by replacing the LCD panel, that is an expensive part and must be ordered by phone, as it is not normally in stock.

You can inquire by phone here to find out part price.

LSR8233JQ washer water drips into tub from fill port

Yes the fill valve has been damaged by the silt. If you remove the hoses from the valve you will probably notice that there is either one or both steel screens missing from valve body. You cant remove the screens if they get clogged.

A 4 year old, a squirt gun, and my Sony TV!

Stop!Clean area around all tactil switches and replace any that are defective.One or more of your function select switches up front is shorted---sending a continuous signal to the micro IC.Good,used switches are fine,but must have same physical parameters as originals.
