Is my Xbox dead?

Wasnt sure where to post this.

My mates brought there xboxs round for a few games of halo2 and somehow they managed to accidentaly give one xbox a drink of beer half a bottle of stella to be exact.

The xbox obvioulsy didnt take to the beery goodness and started to smoke and fizz until we managed to unplug it.

So is there any way of fixing it or is it doomed to the bin?

I think its gone. How much beer did you's spill in it do you know, roughly?

  wolfie3000 00:52 02 Jul 2006

Half a bottle of stella.

Good news is we still have one xbox left until someone decides that one needs a drink :)

covered under any extended insurance or is it still under the years gurantee?

  wolfie3000 01:05 02 Jul 2006

not sure about insurance as its not my xbox,

My mates where talking about surgery on said console and as most of them are drunk i better step in and hide it until tomorrow.

out of interest is it the normal x-box or 360?

If it had been water and the xbox was switched off quickly I'd say leave it for seven days before trying to switching it on. Give it a natural time to dry off completely, with any help like a hairdryer etc. Stella on the otherhand, seems to be quite sugar intensive compared to water. Glutenous stuff and electronics seem a no no.

Still I'd wait a while for the liquid to completely disappear and hope for the best and expecting the worst. Good luck..:)
