Question about Acer TravelMate 4010 Notebook

1 Answer

A drop of water fell on my keyboard around the T, Y buttons and my computer switched off totally. I tried to switch it on but it didn't want to. I left it to dry for a week but now as the week passed it doesn't want to switch on. When I plug the cable for the electricity the lamp that the battery is charging switches on but when I try to switch it on it still doesn't want to switch on. What might be the problem?

The water leaked through the keyboard, and short-circuited something on your motherboard. You need to take your computer to a qualified technician, to see if the CPU (Central Processing Unit) shorted, or if the motherboard itself has shorted.

Either way, it's going to be expensive to trouble-shoot, and to buy replacement parts from ACER.

Samsung Galaxy S2 fell into water wont turn on ! PLEASE HELP


You should not have tried to use it right away. You should have immediately pulled the battery out and then blow dried it and put into the rice bag for 24-36 hours. Because you tried to use it is shorted out. You will need a new phone as it is probably not going to be able to be fixed. Sorry!

GE Optical cordless mouse will not work. Have shut down computer, reconnected the USB to CPU (Receiver), pushed button on mouse. Red light blinks, but will not connect. What else can I do? Have lost...


I have a Logitech cordless mouse but had a problem recently. It fell on the ground and the batteries fell out. Put them back in, the mouse came back on but didn't work. Pushed the button on the mouse several times, no luck. The light at the receiver was always blinking whenever I pushed the button on the mouse, so I assumed that should work. After a few tries, I ended up pushing the button at the receiver and low and behold, the mouse was working again.
Have been using this mouse for years, had that problem only one.

Hope it helps.

Water fell on my apple laptop


First thing is to not try powering the laptop on after the water fell on it. Next, you should remove the battery off the laptop immediately. When this is done, you should fully disassemble the laptop & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of water on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, water damage appears in the form of whitish traces. These needs to be wiped off. This can be done using a tooth brush moistened with few drops of hand sanitizer liquid.
Check all internal connectors & make sure that no water seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.
If the water fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

When checking out the lid switch on my roper washer as jsrock suggested in another post, i heard a screw drop from the inside of that area which caused the lid switch to become unmounted completely. also,...


Top lid pull up. Look in seam between top and front cover. On each side you will see where top clips to front cover. Put a screwdriver in there and lightly pry up till clip releases. Front cover will now pull up and be removed, so you could get what fell in.

Hi!

My phone also fell into a bucket full of water. I just gave the phone to the service center for repair and it's now absolutely fine.

I would suggest you to do the same. Also, don't try to switch on the phone as it may lead to short circuit in your phone.

Thank You
