Which motherboard should I use to replace damamged one

I spilled some water on on ps vita unfortunately and now it won't turn on. I left it unplugged and off for several days and when I plugged in the charger the orange charge light came on so I guess the battery is okay. (Right?)

But if I do have to change the motherboard which do i use? I looked at my serial number and it says PCH2001, but in the parts shop I am only seeing PCH2000 or 1000. Is the PCH2000 one good for my model as well?

@bmildenberg, Benjamin, Stop charging or powering up your PS Vita until the liquid damage is addressed correctly, as you could be shorting out components inside the device. You really should take care of the corrosion that is happening inside the PS Vita from the water damage as that could be your problem. A tear down link for your device Link #1, disassembly video will enable you to get inside the device to remove the damage/corrosion caused by the liquid. Use the 2nd link as a guide/instruction on how to clean/repair the device from liquid damage. After this you will be able to power on the PS and see if further damage has to be addressed. The 3rd link shows the PS-Vita-2000-2001 compatible/share the same mother board. Good luck. I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
