So, I would want to hear pretty much everything that can go wrong with oil inside tablet
Why i ask: I might try to open and clean it, but there is a 50/50 chance I might break it when doing so. And to bring to a shop - cheaper to buy a new one.
It's massage oil, and it has gone in so I can see it on the screen when i power it on. The tablet has SSD. As I understand with oil left in the LCD can become discolored so it is difficult to use the display outdoors/in sunlight. Anything else?
 
I think what it comes down to is.....how conductive the oil is.
Oils are "generally" insulators.....and are actually used to cool transformers.
So I'm thinking that won't be a problem.
I'm thinking what might be a problem is that the oil can cause dirt and other particles to stick....and this may cause a conductive path and this may cause problems.
