First, this router is probably toast. You could try drying the router out with silica gel or similar, else just replace it. This router goes for around $30 or less nowadays.

If you have nowhere else to put a router than outside where it will be subjected to the elements, then you need to get a weatherproofed box to put the router in. I would recommend keeping the router inside away from the elements. If you have signal problems, you may wish to try out a Wireless Signal Booster.

Why is rain drops forming on the back of refeg part of igloo 10 cu, ft freezer/ refeg.


Condensation forms because you have a device that produces heat in a place where there is cold or a draught.
The compressor of a refrigeration device produces heat to cool the inside.

Try moving it somewhere else

Top portion of the screen doesn't work. It's blank. 32" lcd Emerson


Look, if you had a towel on in you probably protected it well, in case you were carrying it for few meters from your car to house, but even if a few drops get it they are probably not gonna cause any massive problems if any at all + after you let it sit there for an hour it should work normally (if drops didn't burn any components, short curcuits etc...)

So my best guess is that you bought a broken TV. :/

Hyundai Getz leaks near pedals when raining


My Getz is also having similar problem. I have thrice got water test done from Hyundai server center. After 2nd test they put some sealants underbody and return the car, but still water was leaking in. 3rd time water test, hyundai said its all fine, no problem but still problem persists. It happens when it rains only, so I dont suspect air-con filters or radiator problems. Water pool is created in driver side footwell only. During heavy rain, I tried to troubleshoot but couldnt find any fault point from where water might be leaking inside. Its second year, I have running into this problem, creating stinking smell inside the car due to wet mats. Looks like I need to do away with my car.

My machine WA37T26G Fisher & Paykel has no power, it will not turn on.


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

The unit not powering on is an indication that it has a power fault.

First, remove the machine's power cord from the wall, wait for about 30mins, then plug it back in. It may cool by then and might power on. If it doesn't power on, plug it into another outlet, to make sure there electricity entering into the unit.

If plugging into another power outlet doesn't power it on then the unit is most likely having a power problem.

When electric current comes from the power outlet into the machine, it goes straight into the power supply board which then circulates the current into the unit. So if the machine doesn't power on, the first thing is to make sure there is power entering into the machine.

So check the power cord, if it is a 3-pin plug, it must have a fuse in it. check the fuse if it is not blown. if fuse is intact, then power supply board should be checked.

If any machine or electronics device doesn't power on, it means its having a power problem. It might have worked fine in the past, but that's electronics for you. Power surge, irregular power supply, excess power supply, etc can affect the unit thereby not making it to power on.

This machine must have a power supply board in it where power enters from the mains. A capacitor, fuse, diode, etc may have been defective on the power board and maybe that's why its not making the machine turn on. There might also be some disconnection or something, inside the unit which is not making it to power on.

To actually find out what's wrong, you need to disassemble the unit with a screw driver and check what's wrong. You will be needing a meter and continuity tester in order to read the components on the power board, once you detect any bad component, you can make necessary replacement at any electronics accessories store within our vicinity.You might also find visible bad component without testing with a meter. This is the only way by which you can detect the problem.

Of course, testing the power board with a meter will require someone that has the ability. So it you can't, then you might be needing the help of a repairman or you can call a friend that has the ability to help you out.

I wish you the best of luck.

Regards.

Motorola karma cell phone has water damage. the buttons work but screen display doesn't. when i turn on the phone, the screen flickers then goes black.


Hi, when ever a phone drops inside the water, first remove the battery cause the battery life might be damaged,and also in that process the phone is still working because the battery is still inside the phone.

You will need to service the phone for the phone to be free from water,cause if the water dries inside the phone it will damage an IC or a chip inside the phone and it might cause more damage to the phone.

After, disassembling the phone is the next step.
Get a phone screw and unscrew the phone from the back by removing the battery and you will see some screws, unscrew possible screws and open the phone.

Get a "methylated spirit"( check Google image) and a small brush, remove the board of the phone and deep the brush inside the methylated spirit,brush gently on the board of the phone. After brushing, get a dryer to dry up the board of the phone and live it for a while to dry.

After some minutes,assemble the phone back and fix in the battery. Make sure during the process you are charging the battery of the phone.

I guess that's all you need.

After doing these process, And still no luck, you will need to replace the flex of the phone.

Flex problem

The flex of the phone is located inside the phone, it controls the functions of the screen of the phone and it's controls the display of the phone.

The flex is a thread like object that is located inside the phone. To see the flex, you will need to disassemble the phone to get to the flex of the phone.

After replacing the phone flex, your done.

Also it might be the screen of the phone. But in other to know if it's the screen, you will need to test a new flex.

You can get a replacement flex from any of the phone repair stores around you.

Hope it helps.

Thanks for using fixya...

Last year I got this device and after 1 & half year my device is not working & showing check gps antenna. Can u please give me a solution Javaid


Probably the gps antenna is not working due to rusty (water inside it). Check the antenna disassembling it. Third part antenna for the NT1 is not available due to proprietary connector so you must buy a (expensive) genuine new one from JVC. Sometimes it's possible repair the old one.

I have a Weber E-420. When the lid is closed and it rains, I find the dripping collection pan full of water and overflowing, resulting in a real mess of water and drippings all over the inside of the...


That's not unusual at all. Nor, is it a design flaw. The are are air vents all along the back of the grill head that allows rain to get in. Especially, blowing rain. The best solution is to either bring the grill into the garage when it's not in use OR if you don't have a garage, invest a few $$ in a good quality grill cover. Not some cheap $9.99 special. Either one, will solve the water problem, as well as keep the tree drippings and bird droppings off the grill.
