    Return cable box with a new one, tell them its defective, i promise you that, they will issue you another on, that's customer service, and a company that wants your business..

    After you UNPLUG it, try taking off the cover and swabbing every thing you can reach with isopropyl alcohol using Q-tips. Try not to let any static electricity discharge on the circuit boards while you are doing this. Leave the cover off when you plug it in so you can tell if any smoke is coming off the leads on the boards or wire harnesses. If nothing is fried it might still work.

    Don't try to turn it on anymore until you are 100% sure it's dried out. The liquid inside might be making connections between parts of the circut board that shouldn't be connected. It might start after it dries out. If it doesn't work then, I don't know what to tell you. Sorry.
