You have to open each side ( nikon travelite covers just unclip ) to get to the 4 prisms. Once opened to clean make sure you do not break the glue that holds down the prisms ( move the prisms in their seats and your alignment is out ). Clean with window cleaner and isopropanol to finish.

    I have Travelite V 12 x 24 and can't find any clips or way to easily open the case. Is there something I am missing here? I got fog in one lens and it need to be cleaned out.

How do i remove moisture from my headlights?

First, you should locate and seal the crack with silicone or equivalent. Next, you should remove the lens from the vehicle (if possible) and all the bulbs, connectors, etc. Then get the lens in a warm, dry place to air out, direct sun light works, but be careful not to warp lens. Once it has dried out and all moisture has left, double check that all seams and cracks are sealed, then reinstall lens. Make sure all bulbs, connectors, etc are secure and tight to prevent moisture from returning. Lastly, enjoy moisture free lenses!

Nintendo repairs

Unlikely after trying to power it on several times since it happened, as the juice is a salt that corrodes (and shorts out) sensitive internals. However if you really want to try, go find some 99% isopropyl alcohol (it CAN be found at drug stores, but might take a couple of stops, not much is kept in stock). If you can't find it, 90% will do, just has to dry longer and more likely to get water spots.
Pull the batteries and/or any power to the device until this is all done. Dunk the DS in the alcohol (if it doesn't work, won't matter either way since it's dead). Let it soak a long while, turning if you see bubbles stop, until you get more bubbles from any seams/ports to stop coming out. After soaking awhile, take it out, drain/shake it out very well, then dunk it again. Repeat several times, the idea is for the alcohol to dissolve any juice residue and related salts and drain them out. After 5 or 6 repeats of this, shake it out as best as you can, and let dry for a day or two (or on the floorboard (not dashboard or direct sun, it can warp/melt) of your car in the sun). Or get an electronics "dry bag" (designed for this purpose) to help dehydrate/dry out the DS. I'd still wait at least 2 days for good drying, shaking periodically to move around any wet alcohol spots internally. Once you are sure it's dry, then reinstall power and try it out. If it worked, it'll work, if not, it'll probably be doing the same thing it was before. Or it might do something else, but still not work, as things may have changed from the juice internally.

Water damage

If this was salt watercor contaminated water, then the only chance is to immediately remove the battery and rinse the Phone several times in clean pure water to remove the conductive salt / contaminated water. Then leave it to dry out in the sun or in a warm place for a few hours until all the residual moisture evaporates & drys out. With any luck the phone will turn on and work. If it was left with salt water or contaminated water for a long period before rinsing this may lead to permanent internal damage.

Binoculars got wet What now

Put your binocs in a big bag of dry rice. Leave them alone for a day or two. The moisture should go to the rice, but you may have deposits (the stuff in the water) on the lens, inside, where you can't clean the lens. Not much help can I give you there. Maybe contact the manufacturer.

Phone got wet need to take apart to

One method that has worked for many people and water damaged phones, (myself included), is to put the phone in small zip lock bag of rice to dry.

Simply disassemble the back cover, remove the battery, and place the phone in a zip-lock bag filled about half way with white rice. The moisture in the phone from the water should be absorbed by the rice after a few hours. This is best done every evening for a week or so until the phone has completely dried out.
It is best not to wait until the phone has dried on it's own after a few days, because if water evaporates on it's own in the phone, it can leave behind residue on the internals of the circuit board.
Good luck!

Got camera wet

If your device gets covered in water, act fast and rationally, and you may be able to save your device.

2. Pull out the battery.
3. Please your device and battery into a bowl of uncooked rice to absorb any moisture.
4. Please it in a warm, dry place where it can receive direct sunlight.
5. Be patient. It is recommended that you leave it in there for at least 48 hours.
6. After 48 hours, put the battery back in and power on.

My house flooded and two camera lenses got wet in a camera bag. what do I do? The glas is drying out but the inside of the lense still looks wet. How do I fix this?

Unfortunately if water got inside the lens it will leave a residue on the elements. The only safe way to fix it is to have it repaired.
They will need to take it apart and clean everything.

Condensation on several lenses in left tube of 10/42!!wow

I live in Florida and my binocs frequently get wet.I put them out in the direct sun for a couple of hours and it cooks the moisture out of them. I have had a pair of Pentax 12x50s for about 30 years.I've probably dried them out a dozen times or so.Good Luck

Water has been spilt on my panasonic fx 500 camera. The lense is still foggy after 4 hours. Is there anything i can do? It has been outside for hours

Remove battery and memory.
Find a zip lock poly bag that will hold the camera and a cloth or paper back containing salt or rice or flour
put both in the bag put in a warm place and leave for several days.
The contents of the cloth/paper bag should draw moisture out.

However if the camera has been switched on whilst in its wet state
it is probably irrepairable.
