"Immersion Repair" versus "failure analysis".

Incongruous that the title of the page is "Immersion Repair" whereas the first sentence begins "This is a failure analysis". Was the machine ever booted again? Were any parts salvaged? Otherwise "Post-immersion Analysis" would be a better title?

Seems that repair might be possible after a wetting or brief immersion. In such case I would want to dismantle completely and dry everything a.s.a.p. After reassembly, what will be the result? Which components are most susceptible to short circuit damage? There are no incidents to describe? No successful recoveries? If repair information can be added, the present title will become appropriate. Regards, ... Peasthope 18:31, 11 March 2016 (UTC)

What a whinge, and almost eight years late. Repair is always preceded by failure analysis. The analysis was sufficient to guide next actions. --Quozl 04:03, 14 March 2016 (UTC)
