There is still hope, put it in rice, place it near a warm spot. if necessary, open it up and brush off all the residue of the liquid. if all of that fails There may be a physical issue with your logic board. If you want to fix it yourself, You can get the part at psp Repair and there is a guide that shows you how to put in the part at psp Repair Guide.

Depending on how significant the water damage is, you may be able to fix this problem rather simply.

1) Open the disc tray
2) Remove cover and battery
3) Bury all components in a bowl of DRY rice overnight
4) Reassemble the PSP

The rice will have absorbed most of the water. This is a good first thing to do to ANY electronics which may have water damage. If this does not fix the PSP, it may have to be sent back to the manufacturer for repairs.

I would suggest you to dry your PSP in the sunlight and then put it in a large bowl of rice. Even then if the problem persists, then I would recommend you to get your console fixed.

Now when we talk about fixing, then there are 2 ways. Either send it to the sony repair center, OR you can also repair your console with PSP Repair Manual. It is a complete source of information through which you can repair all major problems of PSP with the instructions and pictures present in it. Apart from that, the major benefit that you would get is that PSP Fix Guide is very CHEAP and would save you from the trouble of spending hundreds of dollars by sending it to the repair center.

Psp got wet how can we fix it

If it's new, you should be able to call sony support and get a warranty replacement. Had one for myself that I dropped and then the disc wouldn't play. Called and told them the disc wouldn't play, they had me send mine in and sent me a replacement.

If that's not an option, about the only thing you can do is open it up, which voids the warranty, and try to dry it with a hair dryer. Hope this helps.
