WET MONITOR - ANY WAY TO SAVE IT?

By ghall ·
Help!!!! I was just brought a monitor that got left in the back of a pickup truck, and got struck by a terrific rain storm. The water appears to have drained completely out through the slats on the monitor's bottom.
Is there any way to salvage the monitor? There is no water dripping out of it at present, but some moisture is still present.
I would appreciate any imput.

Let it sit for a week at least. Take off cover being careful not to touch tube and **** dry. Should work ok when dry.

Thanks for the info. It appears that the monitor has a special tool needed to get it open though.

Electronics are not really vulnerable to getting wet unless they're passing voltage and signals. As long as the monitor is not plugged in until you'rreally sure it's dry, you have a good chance of having no damage. If you can, take the case off and visually inspect it. If it's too difficult to take the case off (some companies use unusual hardware) then let it sit in a room temperature dry place for several more days.

I'd be willing to bet it will still work. AS LONG AS IT's DRY! Good luck
