Question about Sony PlayStation 2 Slimline Console
I have a PlayStation 2 Slim Black 2005 console that recently was pretty much submerged in water for an unknown amount of time. There was this white residue on some parts of the motherboard (the big green one in between the two metal plates), and it had been underwater long enough for the said metal plates to start rusting a bit. It was plugged in and working at the time (a pipe burst and flooded the basement). I cleaned it with a toothbrush and some water which I made sure to immediately dry off after washing it.
Now almost all of the white residue is gone and the rust is mostly gone, but am I just wasting my time? I plugged it in when it was dry but got no red light from the power switch.

It is not a problem leaving your Slim turned on, it is mainly leaving a disc that is unreadable in the Slim for long times that melts the laser. So it is best if you find that your getting disc read error not to allow the laser to try reading it for hours needlessly.
I think I got an email or phone call from you about repairing this slim for you. I have ordered a power switch, and have lasers on hand. The cost for Repair and return shipping if I change the laser, and the reset/power button card, will be $39.. Contact me at Repairtech@playstationclinic.com
If you can do it yourself, you can get the power/reset button and LAser replacements on Ebay. I suggest not to resolder the swtich on as a new one is not that expensive.
