Water Damage help!
Posted on 2016-08-23
A couple of nights ago I believe a bottle of water had tipped over and enteredy laptop through the keyboard. I didnt realize until water was dripping out of one of my usb ports, when the laptop was lifted on its side.
24 hours left out in the sun I plugged it in. No charge led indication and no laptop action when trying to power on.
Now 48 hours later I tried plugging in again and the charge light came on. I unscrewed and removed the case to expose the internal components. I then tried to power on. The power light and another led (im assuming the hard drive function led) turn on. The screen turns on for 1 second and then the laptop shuts down and goes back to one solid charging light.
My guess is that there was some circuitry damage, but Im not inclined when it comes to that sort of stuff. I have taken a few pictures that I believe would be the damge done due to the spill.
Any insight to this problem and a possible fix or replacement that could salvage some of my laptop's components would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance for any help you may have!!
