My Electric Piano is making static noises #2952624 02/28/20 04:05 PM

Hi everyone!

Im new to this forum, and this morning while taking a sip of tea (I have a separate table next to my piano, but now I won’t be using it) and my dog startled me, making me spill about a tablespoon of liquid onto my 10 year old Yamaha Electronic Piano P-140. The piano was on, and nothing popped; i also cleaned it up in less than 15 seconds- but when I turned it off and on again there is now a prevalent tinnitus-like static in the background that persists in both my headphones and without. I also noticed that it is loudest in the middle of the volume bar (it slides left and right) while being mostly unnoticeable when it is at its loudest and silent. I have taken action to dry it to the best of my abilities and have unplugged it.

How screwed am I? Ive had this baby with me since I was small and it would devastate me if a small mistake like that has ruined my prized possession. All advice (and criticism) is greatly appreciated!!

If you can, open it up and let it air out.. may recover and will be just fine afterwords.
