Water got into my Xbox 360 by the fan can I fix it


Let it dry out give it a day or two before plugging it in put it in front of a fan or heater to dry out good. Was the Xbox plugged in when it got the water on it? Once its dryed out you can try plugging it in.If it doesn't power up you probably fried the power supply. But if it was like a glass of water got spilled and some splashed near fan it probably will work. I think there are even some fuses in side the Xbox but you should leave that to a professional. If it doesn't come on once its dryed out

Nasty molding musty smell...started iout of the blue. It is now early spring have not used A/C yet. It is making me sick


Musty smell comes from three possible situations.
First is simply a spilled liquid on the carpet. A thorough carpet cleaning will get this.
Second, water entering the body of the car. (IE: leaking door seals , window seals, or the hardest to find... coming in under the carpet from the floor pan) Barring leaks from the seals and spills, The floor pan has drain holes and rubber plugs that may dry out and allow water from below the car to enter.
Third, Your A/C unit is developing this condensation in the Air flow Box (complicated air flow box under dash holding your heater core and A/C core) This is a common problem, but requires a de-mold solution best applied by a Pro. You can buy over the counter solutions (sprays) and then make sure you run the heater after each A/C run. That works for many as it dries out the condensation the A/C produces.

Hope this helps.

I spilled some water on my royal cash register, and it was beeping and giving me a error sign. I unplugged it and turned it upside down to try and get the water out. Can I fix it without buying a new one....


You should immediately try to dry the membrane inside the keyboard. You normally need to unscrew many screws in the back of the keyboard to get at it. it will be plastic sheets with little black tracks on them. Dry them gently with LOW heat or wipe until dry. also look for any water on the main circuit board and dry with gentle fan for few hours

Spilled diet coke on laptop. Buttons light up but the screen remains black.


Disconnect your battery and neveeeer turn it on. It must be, no power is connected to it. Then bring your unit to a authorized repairer.

They will clean it and have it dry, check others. This will gonna involved disassembling the unit.

White screen on samsung sch-r450 messenger frm water damage


the only possible thing you could do yourself is to remove the screws, pull it apart and try to blow dry. That's the only thing you can personally do.

Spilled water on it, now it wont turn on


Removed battery first. You should disassemble it to clean and wipe it dry. From bottom to top. Under its keyboard. Don't power it on until you are sure no water remains.

Phone went out


if you need to clean the router, distilled water baths can help... thats what all the components get before assembly. They use a LOT. I have done this to other objects with varied success proportional to my effort to acquire distilled water and cleaning and then drying internally as best as possible then using say a hair dryer to make completely dry.

Jasjar-no sound-after spilled water on it.


I think you still have a good (not 100%) chance of saving it. It usually takes much longer than 1 day to dry out electronics that are still intact. I would open it up and let it dry. Otherwise, see if have a nerdy friend who has access to a non-humidified incubator and leave it in there for a few days. (that's how I salvaged a phone that went through the wash!)
