SOURCE: drying cycle - laundry comes out wet!

Try Tresilla's advice to check the filter first. If you draw a blank there, and if your machine has a separate condenser (as I suspect it will have) then you might want to check whether the bottom end of the condenser, the condensate drain hose which runs from the lower end of the condenser down to the drain pump, or any vent hose (these are sometimes connected to the bottom of the condenser too) has become choked with lint. (So you know what to look for: The condenser is likely to be a largish (often plastic and flattened) duct which runs from the back of the drum up to the dryer blower at the top of the machine. Connected about a third of the way from the top, it will have an inlet hose which leads to the cold water inlet valve and somewhere towards the bottom, a fatter drain hose which leads down to the pump. There may also be a vent hose coming off the very bottom, leading to a point near the very top of the machine). A.

SOURCE: wet ps3 controller

that all depends on how wet the controller was. if anything inside got too wet then most likely no. however, if the outer casing was all that was afflicted then yes. the controller should have no problems. hope this helps.

SOURCE: wet cell phone-blank screen

Well it depends on the type of screen you have in the phone. Some have edges that can split open and lose the fluid that projects the picture so your best bet is to just replace the phones screen, if every thing else works fine

SOURCE: my phone fell into a cup of water

If water penetrated inside the LCD display , then the display must be replaced. Moreover, the liquid may have shorted some component , and in that case there is more repair job to be done.

All you can do is removing external covers if possible, and drying the phone a little longer If the phone does not come up after one week, then repair or replace it.

SOURCE: batteries leaked, cleaned as best I could, but

If you have had a battery leak then this is a very bad thing. It's possible that the battery acid could have corrupted the system board in the remote. I would call Sony to see if they have any suggestions for you, however I think you may end up needing to replace the remote.

Remove the batteries and place the controller in a bag of dry rice for about 48 hours. Then look inside where possible to see if it looks all dried out. If so, replace batteries and try it then.

What to do if my remote gets wet

If it got wet with fresh water, take the batteries out, dry what you can with a clean towel, and let it and the batteries dry thoroughly. Put it in a sunlit window for a day or two. Better yet, put it in a bag of uncooked rice.

If it was salt water or something else (juice, coffee, etc) then it's tougher. Again, remove the batteries, dry what you can, clean what you can with fresh water, then dry everything and cross your fingers.

Since the remote got wet, remove the batteries and let dry or you can try to open it and use a hair drier to dry it.

My Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 was soaked in water. It isn't working, will it work when it drys out?

It depends on how wet it was, if the entire thing was submerged, or even a large portion, it probably will may turn on but it is likely that the lens will be damaged permanently. However if it was just wet upon the outside, like it was used out side during a rain fall, and then wiped dry every thing should be fine.It all depends,try drying it out thoroughly, letting it sit out with all lens caps and lens attachments removed, battery doorway open. is the best thing you can do. I hope that everything works out for you. God bless...
