    what computer is this., make and model.
    both matter.
    spilled what? coffee, cola , or pool acid?

    it is really not a computer but TV stuff.per

    "DSTV Explora decoder offers full Personal Video Recoder (PVR) functionality. PVR enables you to record TV"

    Spilled where the main large unit or just the silly clicker remote.

    to clean a remove if will not dry out easy
    we strip and clean it with IPA< (alcohol)
    then air dry it, even put it in attic all day hot. (mines 100f now) and then put back together, and it works now.

    learn to post TV stuff in TV forum.
    or buy a new remote.

    next time post here for TV stuff not comptures

    step one remove all A.C power and batteries from the DROWNED DEVICE.
    avid cleaners like 409 or janitor in a drum.
    use only IPA or pure
    Ethanol (also called ethyl alcohol, grain alcohol, pure drinking alcohol, spirits, or simply alcohol) pure,

    the problem worst is keypads are very hard to dry out. (rubber seals) and takes hard work.

    buy a new remote.

    one cross fingers fix
    put remote in attic for 24hours, summer answers. (hail Mary fix)

Hi, We have a top loading dispenser. Problem is the bottles at Walmart have a screw on lid and therefor the water spills out before we get it situated on top of the dispenser. Thank you, Laura

Not sure what you have. We buy the 5 gal water at Walmart. We pull the tape sticker off top of bottle and put on our dispenser and it never spills. If your 5 gallon water bottle screws on I have never seen one of those. Sorry if I am misreading or don't understand what you have or what you are talking about.

Okay. I have a DSD 1110 (+2) decoder. The decoder does not want to scan. It just shows a number 8 first then dL then a number 1 with a line turning around and then the numbers 8118 and then it starts again...

New Saeco Odeo Go has solid red exclamation mark, doesn't budge

You have to 'manually' prime the pump: When the red exclamation mark shows, press the water switch on the right side (the picture of the water drip), then open up the steam nozzle and let the machine pump hot water into a cup until the red light goes out.

Hooking up DVC/VCR to HD cable box/TV

Hi Seve.
Not sure what is meant by 'HD cable box'.
If you mean a DSD (Digital Satellite Decoder), then the built-in firmware prevents recording (of composite video signal).
In our country the SP requires that you buy a dedicated 'Explora' decoder which allows recording.
HD cable technology may have introduced similar anti-piracy measures.
{reminder to me: Google "HD cable TV" :)
