Unless you want it repaired professionally, all I can suggest is leaving it for a good few days - weeks even - on a sunny window ledge or airing cupboard. If you're lucky, the water will just be temporarily affecting the electronics, and it might sort itself out when completely dry. If you are unlucky, there may be some corrosion which will remain even after it's dried out. If it looks like coming back to life, remove the tape as soon as you can, run a tape cleaner through it, and use a new tape.

My washer dryer stops in mid washing cycle and pause button flashes. Will not move on until I reset it

My problem was the same. The answer was that my wife had just washed some vintage course linen and it had shed like a mangy cat! The filter was clogged up, so having scooped out as much water as possible, and taken all best possible precautions to stop escaping water flooding the parquet floor, .... I uncrewed the floor level filter and there it all was a wet linen mess. Problem immediately solved. Good Luck!

She68t52uc flashing light which says E:15 and watertap

Not sure if this will definitely work, but i do believe this is a flood safety device. Try removing the drain pipe from the waste pipe, into a bucket or bowl, and empty as much water out as you can, then, with the pipe on the floor (will get wet), tip the top of the dishwasher backwards about 45 degrees, and hold for a few seconds. It may be that water/suds are still in the bottom of the machine, or the dishwasher detected this.

HDR-XR160E is wet. How to retrieve my video?

Stop turning it on for starters and get to a specilaist as the cam may have water in it and the parts are already swimming in it. Usually when something is socked we dissemble it and then leave it to dry or blow dry it with a hair drier but, best get to a specialist, ok.

Hi. My Panasonic SDR-H60 HDD Camcorder camcorder got wet while at Disney at first it worked when I turned it on but then stopped. Its its a 30 Gb I think? anyway I lost all my memories 3 years worth :(...

If it has a memory card, usually SD or SHD mini-card, buy, beg or borrow a card-reader which plugs into your computer USB port, try copy / recover files from card to PC.
If you can't see the files then maybe try free download Express Recovery.

High water in basement, the push button temp indicator reads both leds lite on both ends. i dont know who to reset

1) Call service technician.

2) If water heater flooded, contact insurance company for possible replacement coverage.

3) Manufacturer's suggest replacement of any flooded water heater.

4) Be very careful around wet or previously wet water heater.
Insulation inside tank will stay wet. Household electricity is grounded to water pipes that are connected to gas or electric water heater. Touching wet water heater can be fatal.

5) Read label on side of tank for product identification.
Read manual for possible part replacement.

I have a 92 audi 100 that floods with water when it rains but we have not been able to figure out where the water is coming in from because nothing but the carpet itself gets wet..2 inches wet.. any ideas...

Check if the bottom of the door panels are wet. There is a plastic sheet under the door panel to keep water out. If its ripped or become unglued around the bottom it can cause water to come in. They need to be sealed perfectly to work.

Aeg favorit 64070vi, i 30 fault, think that the anti flood switch is triggered

Thanks to all.
What we couldn't work out is what is actual mechanism of anti-flood triggering, and how therefore to reset it - and why all these other fixes work - but then it occurred to us, that problem is when water gets into the base and can't get out.
Our problem was that water inlet at top of washer came loose so water ran down outside the drum but inside the dishwasher, into the base. We tried the tipping method but this just moved water around and I think there must be sensor there which, if it stays wet, leaves anti-flood triggered.
This makes sense because other high level overflows from drum discharge into base - so if it was to overflow, it goes into sealed base only, wets the sensor and triggers anti-flood.
Our solution was patience - tipped it fully on its side, pointed a hot air blower into it for hour or so, then left it overnight. Tipped it back next morning, water which had run into side panel ran out, so it was upright with its base dry - and (touch wood) it worked like a charm.
