    What should you do when ur favorite PSP is dropped into water?
    What most of us may do is run to a shop for recovery coz your company
    warranty will lapse in case of water damage.
    Here is a smart and cost effective solution for this.
    Get a bowl of rice and put you PSP well covered into it for around 24 hours.
    Don’t forget to separate the battery from it and of course never charge it
    in such a circumstance. Rice being a natural desiccant absorbs the moisture slowly.

    even if it does absorb the water, you still will have problems with the screen, sticky keys, and maybe pieces of rice clogged in your speaker, id rather get it repaired

    my question would be why are people playing with their psp's near water? as much as i would love to play god of war in the bath tub, i would never risk it.
    2.01 -> 2.71 -> 1.50 -> 3.40-OE -> 3.52m33-4 -> 3.90m33-3

    ui guys are gay lol kidding. umm if you were to drop your psp in water the capacitors will discharge, the memory will be lost and the flash memory will not work. pandora will not work because ALL the capacitor will discharge, and the water will create bridges between unwanted areas, so you will discharge everything and fry your board. when you drop it in water.

    ive also dropped a friends nice shiny razor cellphone thingy into a kooler with melting ice in it... he used a hairdryer on it and let it sit out for a day (opened, with the battery out) and it worked fine except sometimes he'd have to push a number button more than once to get it to dial that number. the phone was only in the water for a hot second or two, though, if that changes anything.

    well, the number pad is kinda messed up on mine, and the indicator light is always on. but the screen and the motherboard inside work just fine.

    well it depends how much water got where. if the water got all over then you were done. if the water got in some places and not in others the phone(or psp) might still have a fighting chance.

    not really...if you remove the battery, take it apart and let everything dry, clean the contacts with alcohol, maybe even use a hair dryer, 99&#37; of the time it should be fine. Capacitors have nothing to do with it as all the memory in the psp is flash (except the ram, but that gets erased every time you lose power), therefore it retains it's memory whether the capacitors are charged or not.
