Hi @gliittzer ,
-Did it spill on the adapter or on the laptop as you have mentioned two things "….spill water on a laptop charger…" and "….water spilled on the port for my laptop charger….", so it's a bit confusing?
+Did it spill on the adapter or on the laptop or both, as you have mentioned two different things "….spill water on a laptop charger…" and "….water spilled on the port for my laptop charger….", so it's a bit confusing?
''If it was on the laptop,'' what is the make and model number of the laptop?
First '''do not try to charge or to turn on your laptop''' and then '''remove the battery''' as soon as possible to prevent more damage from occurring. Even if the laptop is off, there is still power available at various points on the motherboard. The laptop’s power button is not a power isolating switch. Think of the laptop as being in an extremely low power state when it is off rather than being off and disconnected from any power source.
''The impurities in the water causes corrosion and provides circuit paths for the electricity which were not in the laptop’s operating design and could damage the components. The corrosion start immediately and is ongoing until it has been properly cleaned away.''
Rice doesn't fix the problem anyway so it's a good thing you didn't have any. This may be of interest [https://www.ifixit.com/News/30047/rice-is-for-dinner-not-repair|Rice is for dinner, not repair]
Then you need to completely disassemble the laptop and clean ''all the affected parts'' using '''Isopropyl Alcohol 99%+''' (available from electronics parts stores) to remove all traces of corrosion. Do not use "rubbing alcohol" as in some cases this is <70% IPA, can contain additives and is not as effective. If you do have to use it, check the label to verify the amount of IPA. The higher the concentration (%) of IPA the better.
Here is a link that describes the process. [[Electronics Water Damage]]
As always with electronics, especially surface mounted pcb be gentle when handling and especially when brushing away the corrosion. You do not want to remove any components from the boards. You will also have to remove any shields that may be covering some components as the water may have got in under them and there is corrosion there as well. Also disconnect any flex cables and clean the ends of the cable as well as the connectors that they were plugged into.
Hopefully after you have done all this the laptop ''might'' possibly work correctly again.
