Water bottle broke in bag and wet my PS Vita
This may have been asked twice before and yes, i read both of them. I feel like a idiot for asking this again but please, let me ask this myself.
On monday 15 september i was in school and after the break (pauze) i put my water bottle in my bag. When i got back in class and did a hour of working i wanted to pick up a worksheet that i had in my bag. For my suprise i saw that my water bottle was leaking. My Vita and charger were completely drounced in it. The idiot that i am tried to dry it and right after that tried to turn it on (i know, i'm dumb). Of course it didn't work but i was really in a stressful state since i got on my birthday (9 september) and i don't often get these expensive things.
Since i was in school i couldn't do anything. The teacher allowed me to dry off everything in my bag but i couldn't do anything about the Vita. I tried whipping the Vita with my hand a couple of times to get the inside water out. When i got home i tried opening the handheld with a screwdriver (i dont do these things often so i followed the tutorial here). Both halves were connected with eachother trough the battery cable that i was to afraid to remove so i left the battery on the system. I noticed a lot of water droplets so i let it dry 90 degress open with both halves (battery cable and black ribbon still attached). After a day my dad tried to charge it because he said the water would have been evaporated already. And it didn't work. After 2 more days i tried again and it still doesn't want to turn on but everything inside looks dry and ok.
Did i do something wrong or do i have to wait for some longer? I would really appreciate it if someone could help me directly. I can send some pictures of the board and the insides and you could tell me if there is some corrosion or other problems. I am really stressed out since this cost me a lot of money and i really want it to run again. I come from the netherlands so i hope my english wasn't that bad.
Thanks for reading and hopefully you can help me out!
Es esta una buena pregunta?
This may seem silly, but if this sort of thing ever happens to you again the very first step you should do is take out the memory card and put them in an airtight container filled with uncooked, white rice, and let it sit covered in the rice for a minimum of 24 hours, then take it apart and make sure that its all dry and that there isn't any damage that you could see, put it all back together and turn it on (this is the first time you should turn it on) if it turns on and everything works, then there ya go.
If not I'd follow the guides for the product or get a local repair company to fix it for you if you cant.
