Having problems with your Samsung R610-64G Laptop ?

WET LAPTOP I left my laptop near the window and went out partying. It rained that night and my laptop got wet. My laptop was in shut-down mode but was connected to the AC supply. When I reached home, I wiped it with a towel and tried to turn it on. The power light would come on but the system wouldn;t turn on. I left it to dry the entire night. Next morning I kept it under the sunlight for a couple of hours. Again tried turning on. This time it would turn on but keybord wouldn't work. So I left


Answers :

Multicolored vertical bands means that the contacts on LCD ribbon cables are still shorting because of liquid or oxide building in consequence of liquid damage.

Also keyboard is probably not working for same reason.



When you get liquid damage you need to remove immediately the battery and the ac charger, and service the laptop, to prevent more damage caused by shorts.
The service is done by a technician, disassembling the laptop and using a cold hairdryer from distance to dry internal parts.

You must ensure the laptop has no liquid inside before starting it.

In your case I can only tell what parts are working:

If you can see the vertical bands and there is no static stain on display caused by liquid penetratrion, then the LCD is working.

You have backlight, therefore the inverter is working.

To connect to external monitor you can try starting the laptop with\015\012video cable already connected, It should start on ext. video.
\015\012\015\012 If you are getting video signal on external monitor, that means that the motherboard is still working.

If you also get windows splash screen (or Linux) , then the hard disk is also fine.

If you do not want to spend any money for this laptop you can wait few more days, with battery out, and try starting it, in the meanwhile oxide can cause more internal damage, that is not the right way to proceed.
The laptop should be sent for repair.
If the laptop is less than one year it will still have factory warranty. However, factory warranty does not cover liquid damage.
If you do not mention that there had been liquid damage , they will probably not realize, and cover the repair, but that won't be really fair toward manufacturer.
To do things properly contact manufacturer and explain them what happened , so that you can arrange a repair, if laptop is fair new they will make an effort to keep quote low.

Do not forget to leave feedback.

Thanks

For a rained laptop you should not turn it on even try under the sun, because the warter came inside which can not try, you need open keyboard and try to dry the wet stuff on motherboard surface. and use heating fan (use for hair one) to blow there coulpe of hrs. then stay there over 24 hrs. then try turn on.
\015\012most case the the laptop will damaged when you turn it on too many time before absolutely dry.
\015\012hope you fix it, take a rating let me know how much helped you thanks! keep in touch your question please.
