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

Sani Rinse Air Dry Sani Rinse Air Dry....if you dont have those buttons, substitute:

Let it go through the diagnostics cycle, about 10 minutes. Push Cancel/Drain. If it occurs again, you have something wrong with the heater circuit. Check the heating element for breaks.

After liquid spill the laptop has to be disassemble and the motherboard inspected for liquid damage. In some cases cleaning the motherboard might fix the laptop.

If water was spilled in it, the batteries should have been removed immediately, if you could remove the circuit board from the casing, dry it off and place it under a lamp for a few hours it should have been perfectly fine. If a soft drink, sugar base or other substance was spilled in it; the board would need to be cleaned, a small amount of soap and water can work, use a cotton swab, only clean the affected area of the spill, make sure to rinse all the soap off, dry with towel, then place under a lamp to get all the moisture out. Also make sure you clean the bottom side of the buttons that contact the circuit board. If it doesn't work then you may have to buy another unit.

Water spilled into my laptop Dell Latitude D600. what do i do


  1. Disconnect any power and remove the battery
  2. Tilt the system in various angles to drain as much of the water from the system as possible.
  3. Let the system dry for several days, (I'd say a minimum of 4) is a relatively warm place
  4. Insert Battery, see if system will power on.
If the system was powered on when the spill occurred and turned off by itself during the spill, then the motherboard has most likely been damaged and will need replacement. ($100 or so on EBay)
If the system will not power on after drying, you might consider replacement rather than repair as the cost of fixing it could exceed the replacement cost. (Dell has portables starting around $399)

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.

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.
