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.

I have several large water spots on the lower right corner of the tv from overspray with windex. Can this be fixed?


Not a good idea to clean tv with windex. Try wet towel dipped in mild soap solution. Make sure all water has been removed and towel is only wet. When tv off, try removing the spots. Turn tv on only after tv dry.

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.

What is a dry suit and how is it different to a wet suit.


A dry suit is loose fitting apart from a sealed neck, wrists and ankles to stop the water getting in. Dry suits do not provide insulation and the clothes worn under the dry suit keep the people warm they are used more for deep sea diving. Wet suits no not keep a person dry but they are insulated to keep the person warm during water sports or scuba diving.

Spot Bot leaking water from reservoir through brushes


make sure that your collection tank is empty and correctly attached. If it is full, it will shoot water on the spot, but not **** it up several times in the cleaning process leaving a large wet puddle bigger than the original spot.

N70&samsung s3500 got wet due to water


you need to keep the battery and phone in a good sun light to dry out the water inside the circuits. Don't switch on the phone until both are well dried.

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.
Sorry.

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
