SidekickII I spilled very little amount of juice on the top left button and I think the sugar made the button stuck so I can't use that button

If you have a torx set disassemble it using google. You can clean the keys with soap and water if they aren't attached to the electronic innards :)

Get a cotton tip swab and dip it in some alcohol. Squeeze out excess liquid, hold your palm upside down with the screen facing the floor. Use the swab around the stuck button to clean away the stickiness. Holding the TX upside down keeps any liquid from spilling into the key housing. Leave the TX face down until it dries completely (should be a couple minutes).

Whatever you do DON'T use any spray solvents to clean the contacts. Any solvent will completely wreck the thin membranes used on some keyboards. Use a slightly damp cloth to clean the area. Try not to spread the gunk any further than it already is. As for the button keep wiping it down with a slightly damp cloth and a small amount of soap and I mean small. Keep wiping all around the button and then push it and then wipe again.. You may have to do this 20 times but eventually it should clear the sugar residue. Every time you wipe the button use an unused piece of cloth otherwise you'll just be spreading the gunk back on. BMW

The more you leave it on, the more damage it can cause. it's chemical reaction, and sugars can do lot's of damage to elctronic circuits. you'll have to open it up and clean it, or send it to a lab. take a look at this post: http://www.fixya.com/problems-solutions/t102667,p97334/Samsung-12-Button-LCD-Prostar-DCS-Phone.aspx The only difference for you is that the damage might be more local, and you might be able to treat it locally without risking getting more of it wet. try to isolate it and work only on the parts that got juice on them. Good luck

How do I clean my keyboard on toughbook cf53. I spilled juice on it and the keys are sticking and hard to use now.

It is a toughbook so don't be afraid to use a damp sponge to try and clean out the sticky sugarly juice. Increase the amount of water in the sponge as you go along until it gets clean enough to work correctly. Leave the laptop upside down while doing this to prevent the water from carrying the juice further into the keyboard. If you know how to remove the keyboard, I've successfully washed it with running water and letting it dry out vertically so excess water runs out to an edge. If the heating system is on, I've done this on a radiator or heating vent.

My daughter seemed to spill some pickle juice on the front of my sanyo flat screen tv it ran into the bottom where the power and channel changing buttons are now it is wigging out and changing channels and...

Spill a small amount of warm water and let it run down to wash out the pickle juice. Of course do this without the power cord connected. Let the tv dry long enough to be sure the water has evaporated before re applying power. Just might work.

Spilled juice on Sams4s 520 now it's not printing receipts

SWitch that machine off and call a technician before you damage it further. Please note that all juices with sugar natural or artificial are acidic and the more time you take to have it removed proffessionally the more damage

My kids accidentally spilled orange juice on my laptop. It continue to work for a little but now the screen is black. What can I do?

Sugar is the worst. If you had immediately unplugged and removed battery you may have had a chance. Once sugary drinks get in it's almost a death sentence for electronic devices. If it's valuable take it to a Qualified Computer Tech, if not right it off as a learning moment. If you want, this is a detailed explaination: http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/askjack/2012/jul/05/drink-spilled-on-laptop

Spilled some coca cola on my camera. The on/off switch was not working 100% (but it was working)so i tried to clean it with a little amount of alcohol...Just the outside around the switch. Now the on/off...

I am reliably informed if the cola was sweetened with sugar only a strip-down and manual cleaning has a chance of working.

If sugar-free an aerosol of plastic friendly contact cleaner might work.

The sugar goes into the contacts and permanently deamages the keyboard. NOT REPAIRABLE. The laptop keyboards are not very expensive. You will only get that problem solved by replacing the keyboard.
