how to fix a wet ps vita that wont turn on


Nathan, wipe dry as well as you can, use a hair dryer for about 15 min's, not to hot, then place in a bag of rice for a couple days.

Hey Nathan! This is what is involved in taking it apart. IF you do that, you will find water and corrosion now because it has been a while since it got wet, The only other cure is to put it in a vacuum chamber to cause the water to evaporate fast. That wont cure the corrosion issue though. So if you take it apart, don't do the bake process that shows. You can try a blow dryer or compressed air spray it with WD-40..

My ps vita fell into water while plugged in and now I cannot turn it off to try to let it dry. Can I put it like it is in rice?


I recently had a similar situation, mine got wet while it was turned on and would not turn off. Eventually it started flashing off and on and then went out all together. After that I tried leaving it in rice for a few days but it did not work. I know it's not a solution but I eventually had to just buy another one. The old one still doesn't work.
