Hey all, Not sure which area to put this, but as it's not a PC thought I should give this a go, apologies if it's wrong!!
Basically my friends Xbox One has recently broken having spilt a glass of water over it, It was turned off immediately and attemped to dry it (not opened it up)
The Xbox obviously consists of PC parts pretty much so thought this would be the best place to turn,
The issue caused reminded me of an episode of "Dragons den" in which an entrpreneur explained that the cause of damage to the mobile he used in his example is not specifically the liquid, but the minerals in the water we drink/use attaching themselves to components, He created a solution that is 70% isopropyl (trying to find the other ingredients) and has had quite good success in reparing mobile phones.
The solution is used on mobiles (Reviveaphone) but I wondered if the same would be said of all electronics, mainly my friends Xbox Motherboard.
As he is pretty much on last chance saloon, The Xbox powers up each time, Sometimes it boots (not rare enough to play it properly) and more often than not shows the power light on, then boots off within seconds, It sounds to me like something is shorting the circuit, which could possibly be minerals from the water on the system.
(I think you see where this is going, it consists a motherboard and lots of isopropyl)
Has anyone ever tried this with electronics and what was the outcome? Is there anything else to try before we potentially kill it completely/save it?
