I have Coca-Cola in my Xbox one s was cleaning in I hit my cup by accident


So......just for clearing my mind, I came home the other night and found my Xbox 1s (white -- pre-1x) with at least 1 1/2 c of water in it. Is this something that could happen from a water-cooled system? Or should I look into malicious intent?

Hi @acgrieve32 ,

You would need to completely dis-assemble the XBox and use IPA 90%+ to clean away all the traces of moisture and corrosion. (IPA - Isopropyl Alcohol - available at most pharmacies. Try not to use 'rubbing alcohol' as this is sometimes <70% IPA , can sometimes contain scents and is not as effective. Check the label if you do decide to use it)

Here is a link to the ifixit Xbox One S Repair repair guides which should be of some help.

Here is a link that in general describes what to do to try and recover a device which has had water damage.

Hopefully this is of some help

Xbox One has internal power supply that accepts utility voltage. One mishap and you electrocute yourself.

If you do want to try, replace the power supply altogether, then think about the board repair thing.

Oh also the disc drive is gone for sure if the mechanical parts are wet, you can only replace the mechanical assembly of the drive, do not replace the drive controller board.
