How to dry a water spilled Palm, Hand-pc, Mobile, GPS, Camera etc.


Dont worry yet! Maybe your water spilled gadget is a gonner but let's be optimist!
You should do the steps bellow as soon as possible.

-Disconnect from outlet (if connected).
-Remove the battery (if possible).
-Dry it with a towel.
-Cautiously with a hairdryer blow it dry! even inside the compartment, if you have access. Have patience keep on for few minutes!
-Putting in raw rice for a day or two can help to dry it further.

Even if these steps do not help to revive it, they will definitely maximize your chances for your gadget to be accepted by the manufacturer to be repaired under warranty/guaranty!

Good luck!

My battery is leaked my camera is not working want to eject casset out of it tried connecting charger but didnt helped


A leaky battery is not good news. First, the "stuff" that leaks from a battery is acid. It will burn clothing and your eyes if it comes in contact with them. Wash you hands completely before touching your clothes or rubbing your eyes after touching the battery acid!

Next, the acid is conductive. This means wherever it has spilled, it is like a copper wire. If the spill is across the charging terminals, it acts like a dead short circuit. This conductive path radically changes the circuit(s) and will have to be eliminated before going further.

To have hope of this device working again, the acid will need to be thoroughly cleaned / removed The acid is usually a heavy fluid or gel (depending on the battery type) and can be cleaned with solution of baking soda and water applied & scrubbed with q-tip. Baking soda neutralizes the acid and the water help dissolve the dried-on acid. You'll need to exercise care to not let the solution get on / in electronic components. If the acid has entered some of the electronics - and isn't merely topical - you may have success restoring functionality to the device.

Wipe away excess solution and allow to dry. Power up and try again. Good luck!

I have a universal remote. The power comes on, but I can't get it to work. It used to work until I spilled water on it. I know... Red flag. :) buuut I cleaned it up fast and like I said power still co


Since your remote is responding, you may want to check if it is producing an IR signal. To do this, take a picture of the remote when someone else presses a button. (Have the other person point the remote at the camera lens. With a digital camera (cell phone or other camera), if the remote is producing an IR signal, the resulting picture will show a flare of light.) Taking pictures of several different button presses may indicate which functions are compromised. You can try resetting the codes for the different devices the remote controls.

Unfortunately, you may need to replace your remote with a new one. I've never had much luck cleaning the contacts after they were damaged.

In the future, if you spill water on the remote, first remove the batteries. Then dry the bulk of the water off of the unit. To finish drying the water from the contacts inside, fill a bowl or other container large enough to hold the remote with some uncooked rice. Place your remote (with the battery compartment open) into the rice and leave it there; then cover the bowl. You can rotate the remote in the rice at intervals but leave it in the rice for several days. (The drying process can take a week.) Do not replace the batteries until the remote is completely dry.

Alternatively, get one of the cell phone drying bags and use that to dry the remote. It will still take several days to get all of the moisture out of the unit.

I hope this helps.

(If you aren't in a hurry, sometimes letting the wet gadget dry in the open air for several weeks will work. Trying to rush the drying process doesn't work as well.)

My wonderful little sony cyber-shot got drenched when my water bottle spilled in my purse. It was in my purse about 5 minutes when I discovered it wet. I took it out and laid it in my car seat to dry it...


Every time you try to turn on a camera that still has water in it, you fry the circuits. You should have removed the battery and card, dried as much as you could and then buried the camera in a bowl of dry rice for a week before even thinking of trying it.

The battery on my Casio EX-Z1000, even the newly replaced one, drains completely in a couple of days with the camera not in use. Is there a way to save the battery charge while the camera is ''idle''...


You most likely have water corrosion in your camera creating a short. Most people never relies that they received water into a camera as a simple spill from a glass can go unnoticed.

LCD screen went black


No. It is likely that there is still water in it. It's very important that you take the battery out and do not try to use it. Take it to a repair shop and be SURE to tell them it had water in it so they can take the appropriate steps to clean and protect it.
