You are really in trouble with this because soda is acidic and if the power was on then the damage is really bad. It will never be the same. Replace it because when the soda dries, it leaves a carmel like mess.
Let me say, up front, that I am not a printer guru. My background is in biomedical electronics, but this procedure works in most applications. Take distilled water and pour a small amount into the area where the soda was spilled. Wait a few minutes to allow the water to dissolve the dried soda. Then pour in more distilled water to flush out the residual soda. Allow to dry. The water should rinse out the soda, and when it dries it will leave no contaminates of its own. This procedure works well on medical devices such as telemetry transmitters and cell phones that have been spilled on. I hope this helps. Thanks for asking Fixya. Dan
That actually happened to a tv of mine once-i had some clear diet soda get spilled on front, I didn't clean it out(just off of screen) and I corroded the contacts on the lcd itself. if it is a recent problem get it cleaned/clean it yourself as soon as possible to prevent damage to screens connections. hope this was helpful, good luck.

man, i hate when this happens. soda (sugar) and electronics do not go together very well at all. there are keyboard foam cleaners u can buy at computer stores.. they do a well job on soda problems, but im sure not 100% unless of course u remove the keyboard from the unit and clean it with this, electrical cleaner and alchol on a q tip...
Darn.........i hate when that happens. lol....not to worry...........the liquid makes its way to the evaporation pan just above the floor. Remove the grill below the door and get down with a flashlight. you will see the pan and it will either have some liquid on it or some dryed residue.........clean it with a solution of baking soda and water [two tablespoons in two quarts]. Also wipe out the inside of the fridge, the floor, the walls etc. finally put a bowl in the fridge with a half cup of baking soda in it, uncovered, and just leave it there.
If it is a non-stick surface brushing cold water on with a pastry brush while it is still ver hot and immediately after removing the food will clean the surface easily. As for the outside, if it is a painted surface a non- abrasive cloth with warm water could possible clean it. I would not recommend pulling it apart.
Most likely the soda gummed up the contacts inside the remote. You can disassemble the remote and clean the contacts on the pc board and, if it has one, the rubber membrane, which is conductive. Use a pencil eraser for the metal contacts on the pc board after cleaning it.
