    You probably already damaged it by repeatedly turning it on, but take out the battery and put it in a dry place. Or in a ziplock bag of instant rice.

    You want to make sure alllll the liquid is out of the PSP. But it sounds like something short circuited or fried.

    Dude i managed to get it work but the right button is malfunctioning i fixed all the errors except that
    also the screen is shutting down if i pressed the left button and who says i repeatedly turned it on?

    it's obvious that first i have to Disassemble it Only a fool would cry and say ohhh lucky a ziplock bag.

    anyway I left it at a dry place opened and of course i took the battery out it's commonsense

    and don't confuse an IOS device with a psp

    I'm just wondering how much a "spit" of water is. Because by your "diagram" of periods, that's a lot of water. But I've taken phones (and smartphones) and used them in the rain without a single issue. It usually takes more than a little molecule of water to cause any sort of damaging short.

    there's a bunch of dot's on the screen.
    so it's not many it's just on the screen (half of it)
    and the right button is funky right now and the screen is shutting down if i hold the left to counter the right and so so

    and Psp is a sensitive device a little spill of rain could kill it but mine is just a spit


    Let's pretend i took my psp while I'm taking a shower it'll hit the screen and kaboom broken Jk no some of the buttons won't work or will malfunction

    Let's pretend i took my i touch while taking a shower and reading some manga the water hit the screen will it broke no.

    Take out your PSP battery and bury your PSP among a bag of rice and let it sit for couple days. Let bag of rice pick up the moisture.

    And whenever you deal with water spilling, don't turn it on. Turning it on is what damaged it.

    Don't clean your PSP when it is on or when the battery is connected.

    Yo, sorry for my harsh words i think i just got busted yesterday because of the psp(yeah I'm serious the girl left me waiting in the rain i was playing with my psp but she pushed me SHE PUSHED me when she arrived then half of the psps screen is ugh )

    well i fixed it without rice i have some other solution for that first of all

    Pray
    2nd
    disassemble it(remove the battery and MS stick
    3rd open UMD Case/lid leave it for a day

    test it tomorrow VOILA it's fixed at the cost of your custom firmware that i worked so hard to activate the-- oh sorry that's private(i'll leave it your imagination)
