1. Unplug the AC adapter.
2. Remove the battery.
3. Disassemble the laptop & clean all internal components.
4. Assemble it back & test it.

When this is done, you should fully disassemble the laptop & thoroughly inspect its inside. Look for any traces of liquid on the circuit boards & on other components. On circuit boards, liquid 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 liquid seeped into them. Dry them if needed.
When you are done, re-assemble back the laptop.
If the liquid fell on the keyboard & you found out that the keyboard is no longer working, then you will have to replace the keyboard.

If it still does not work, the motherboard might be damaged & needs to be replaced.

Tea got spilt on it. It worked for a few min. then screen dark and won't light up. Everything else works. What do I need to replace?


Karen...

Even "clear" Water left with electricity will continue to cause damage... It must be dried before power is restored.

There is an immediate and urgent need to get ALL the power removed from any ELECTRICAL device that has moisture exposure.

If it was tea with milk... (mine was coffee with cream & sugar... full cup turned over on my DELL PC in 2002)...

I learned right there how to pull the battery... pulled the hard drive
rinsed it all the rest with clean water... and again with 90% rubbing alcohol... gently blew everything dry with compressed air and let it all dry for several days... turning parts over each day.

Three days later I reassembled it all back together
and it is STILL running TODAY.

Hope this helps!!

My laptop is completely dead, fine yesterday. Today no lights, sounds nothing. I tried removing the battery , unplugging no response. Thanks,


Remove the battery for at least 3 minutes... Then put it back and then plug in the charger and switch on the charger. If the battery is completely drained, it would take a while for the charging to initiate. Please have patience and leave it on charging even though without the charging indication for at least an hour. After that still if the charging indicator doesn't lit, then its definitely your charger or laptop. You will need to take it to a service centre in that case.

Pump was working fine yesterday popped the breaker


Hi Mohn,

Don't know your geographic location, but where I am we've been in the single digit temperatures for three days. Everything that can freeze has frozen.

If you are in a similar area, even though the water in the spa (I'm assuming the spa pump is being used on a spa) is heated, the pump housing isn't. If it iced up, it could very well cause the problems you describe.

Comment back with some more detail before I continue down what might be the wrong path.

Best regards
Mike

Spilt water on mouse. Now red light on


if the mouse is working properly then you might just want to leave it, is it a rechargable mouse?

If you do want to try and fix it , you could try carefully opening it, you should not need to use much if any force and then make sure everything inside is dry, using a hairdryer on low heat can be useful.

there is a chance the water has damaged the electronics of the mouse and so you might not be able to fix the problem.

Battery light where no battery problem exists


Check the Tension on the Belt. If it is Even just a little bit loose it will cause the Dash light and it will not allow the Alternator to Recharge the Battery.

Check engine and d4 lights on


d4 is flashing as a trouble code for the automatic transmission... i would say without research that it is a code for a transmission solenoid. maybe while washing the car some water got in and caused a short...these solenoids are usually weatherproof....you could try disconnscting the battery for 30 secs..to clear the trouble code and then start the car. remember you may lose your preset info!
