If you hurry and get some flux off and take the tv apart and clean all the PCB's with the flux off, provided the set still works, then you can possibly save it

A dark liquid is coming on the floor in the left corner of the refrigerator. Bottom freezer refrigerator

Possibly a spillage of blood, cola, or some other foreign fluid. Does it re-appear after cleanup?

I brought a new battery, but still no power in car

Your ground (-) wire from the battery could have a bad connection. Follow it down to where it ends and check connection. If not it, check all positive connections. If corroded, try pouring cola-cola or OJ terminal if you can't replace. If still not working, check inline fuses coming from positive (+) terminal. Hope this helps.

Grandson spilt milk on my mitsubishi HD tv how do I get it cleaned if it got into the screen

Do not use any cleaner with chemicals in it---try a lens cloth with just a little pressure and slightly damp with distilled water---you can damage the screen very easily as most are anti-glare coated like a camera lens.

I had a friend that had a problem with his DELL . He sent it in for repair and they told him the same thing. He asked them to ship it back and he took it to a private individual for repair.They are too cheap to honor they're own warranty. Report them to the Better Business Bureau.

Cola on laptop wont go now want to get my photos off it

1) DON'T TURN IT ON, unplug it and remove the battery. then WAIT

If it's already dead, like went out when the cola was spilled, you can still get all your information out of it if you take it someplace and have them remove the hard drive and get the data out of it.

It's much better to have a sticky keyboard than to have a dead computer, so let it dry completely before trying to remove it.

The removal process might be a bit difficult if it got down below the keyboard.

Click on this Link to go to a web page that will walk you through the removal of the keyboard, hard drive and other components. The idea is to remove all power from the computer, then remove components and wipe them off. There are some non-conductive cleaners out there. HERE's ONE

Even if your computer is dead, you can remove the hard drive, using the instructions above and then put the drive into an external enclosure like THIS ONE. Then plug the hard drive into another computer to get your data off it.

If the computer wasn't on and you don't know for sure that it's dead, i'd remove the battery and unplug it and let it sit for a couple days so the liquid dries and then take it to a repair shop.

Good luck and write back if you need more help.

Spilt coca cola on camera pictures cloudy camera is a olympus FE120 6.0megapixal digital

Coca cola is very acidic, this is an example of what it does to your body, it dissolves it! It has messed up the curcuitry of the camera  so its off to a technician or a new camera.....

Casio Exilim ex-z700 - lens wont open

Unfortunately, cola in a camera of any kind is almost always fatal to the camera. The sugar residue with eat away at the plastic and electrical connections. Water is the only thing that will clean the soda (cola) from the camera, (also fatal to cameras). Removing the covers to the camera would give you better access to the damaged areas. I believe they used tri-head screws on the case screws. A proper sized flat blade screw driver and a bit of muscle will get theses screws out. Remove the battery as soon as possible. It is possible to flush or soak cameras with water, but you must dry them out quickly and throughly, best with clean compressed air. I wish you luck
