Hi i was workng on my laptop.during this a tea cup dropped at lap top. tea enter in to the laptop a little . .but now left button not working.rest of the laptop is ok. what is the solution please....


if you could open the keypads, you can clean the surface of the defective key. probably some tea residue builds up on the key and causes it to malfunction. you can search on utube on how to open your laptop keypads.

I dropped my phone in tea, the phone still works but you cannot see anything on the display screen. Is there something I can do to fix it. Sony Ericsson Walkman W350a.


Short answer: No. Long answer: Your phone has water damage. Warranty is void if your phone has water damage. Since you KNOW you've dropped it in tea, you should consider it a lost cause and move on. For others - if you do something similar (dropped in water): Immediately turn it off. Take the battery out, then proceed to completely dismantle the whole phone. I have in the past used kleenex paper to tuck into places I can't dismantle, to get the water out, but they usually say to dismantle it, then let it completely air dry. It may take a week. If it, after it's completely dry, still works, then maybe you got lucky, and maybe it'll start acting up in a while, problem by problem as the electronics corrode inside the phone. I have heard of phones surviving water damage with only minor problems, but it's rare.

My cell phone has no network connection


Try this: turn off the phone & let it charge for 48hours, that will give it enough time for the electricity to dry out the internal circuitry in the phone and possibly fix your internal antennae problem...if that doesn't work then your phone's tea bath may have shorted the antennae.

Wet


first take a wet piece of cloth and try to clean the tea then open your phone and with that cloth clean your circuit then put them all under the sunlight and remove battry first.
