I spilled water on my quest 2

I spilled water on my quest 2. It was not a lot but it wasn't a small amount either. I have a heater and a hairdryer to it atm. Basically what you'd do if u dropped your phone in water. Will this help? If not, is there someone who does repairs? Will I have to replace it entirely? I'm freaking out rn. Plz help!!!!!!

Sorry I dont think it will work sorry I tried sonming similar sorry again relly am ??????????


bro same problem but just my left controller got permenent efects


my headset got wet so i put it in rice yesterday. it still turns on and can connect to the controllers. im gonna wait a couple hours then open it up 😭😭



This may be of interest to you.

Rice is for dinner, not repair



so i spilled water on my oculus and i didnt know what to do so i just left it. That turned out to be a big mistake because now my oculus fans do not work at all. it has been almost a year since and now i can only play for almost an hour until it overheats. But that is if the game works when the headset is hot. most games i have stop working when the headset gets hot. so i have only 2-3 games that i can play on for more that 10 minutes. i dont know how to fix it but i really want to fix it.

Hi @tc2319 ,

You will have to open the headset and check for any water related damage.

Treating this would be the same as for any electronic device that has come into contact with water or any liquid for that matter.

The water causes corrosion and provides circuit paths for the electricity which were not in the headset’s operating design and could damage the components. The corrosion process starts immediately and is ongoing until it is completely cleaned away

First do not try to charge or to turn on your headset and then remove or disconnect the battery as soon as possible from the device to minimize any further damage.

Then you need to dis-assemble the rest of the headset and clean all the affected parts using Isopropyl Alcohol 99%+ (available at electronics parts stores) to remove all traces of corrosion and water. If possible do not use "rubbing alcohol" as in some cases this is only 70% IPA or less, can contain additives and is not as effective. If you do have to use it, check the label to verify the amount of IPA. The higher the percentage of IPA the better.

Here is a link that describes the process. Electronics Water Damage

As always with electronics, especially surface mounted pcb be gentle when handling and especially when brushing away the corrosion. You do not want to remove any components from the board.

Hopefully after you have done all this the headset might possibly work correctly again.

Here’s the ifixit Smontaggio Oculus Quest 2 guide, that may be of some help.

If this process seems too daunting, take your headset to a reputable, professional electronics repair service, experienced in liquid damage repair and ask for a quote for a repair. If you decide to do this, do it sooner than later.

hey i have the same problem but i have a question what do i do next whats the Pont in doing this will it dry I had water in this vr headset for along time what if i do it and it still wont work plss tell me I don't wanna spend 300 bucks again


@ken kaneki

You can only try cleaning it with alcohol to remove any corrosion etc that may be causing it to malfunction and check if it now works OK

It may already be too late and components may have been damaged and will have to be replaced.

This will not be easy without a schematic (I can't find one).


Can this also work with controllers?


@Benaiah Land

Yes, Cleaning water affected electronics is basically done the same way.

Make sure that you disconnect the battery as soon as possible to reduce any further damage before starting to clean the controller


i spilled a water on my vr then i started it up then it keeps a black screen

tslimey and if you just let it dry out, it will be corroded and will be no longer fixable. Not a good idea to wait!
