I accidentally spilled some water on the raspberry pi board, and it switched off and the HDMI stopped working.. I dried the board and connected it again, now everything was working fine except for a thunderbolt sign on the top-right corner of my screen, and also I couldn't control the pi using keyboard and mouse.

Leave it in a dry warm place for a couple of days. If it still doesn't work buy another.

  • Thanks, but if there is any other way please inform.. I don't want to lose it

  • It is not economical to repair. You would need to find the exact point or points of failure. That might take anything between a minute or a day of an experts time. Even if that point or points were identified the cost of component(s) replacement might be greater than the cost of buying a new Pi.
