PSTwo + Water = Bad
Water got spilt on my PSTwo and now when it turns on it just turns back off. So the system is still getting power and responding, but just not running.
Press (Turns Green)
1 Second later (Turns Red)
Any ideas? Is this salvagable? Perhaps it is just still a little wet under a chip or something? I took it all apart down to the last piece and dried it out the best I could but its doing the same thing. Nothing sparked (before or after the spill), and nothing smells burnt. Please advise.
Check all your fuses. At least one is blown. I'm guessing ps14.
Water and any electronic device = bad ;X. Shouldn't you know that?
if you would have unplugged it ASAP and left it dry before plugging it back in it would probably be fine. Any electronic can be washed in water, just as long as its left to dry before being used it won't be hurt. Thats how I recovered a hdd, 2 keyboards and a floppy drive by using a dishwasher.
Water is easy to cope with just dry the device,
if any fuses are broken, fix them!
I hope there was no sugar, nor salts, nor metals in the water.
It was plain well water. I'm going to try to exchange it at walmart.
Why did you turn it on before you are sure that it is dried?
Yeah its dried. At any rate Walmart refused to take it back.
I'm going to get a solder pen and a multimeter (from radioshack, I'm not buying anything from walmart heh) so i'll just do it the scener way ;)
Edit: removed unnessary info
How is it walmart's fault you spilled water on it and didn't have the original parts?
The AV Cable was never in the box from walmart. That is what that was about. Besides this thread isnt about walmart.
