From the RUMOUR: Xbox One leaking liquid? thread

wtf! (not my console)


and a gaffer as well:

My console(PS4) has that white stuff on back in vents and I have yet to take to the cover off. I thought it was from running my humidifier with vicks vapor rub(which I run 8-10 hours at night time 7 days aweek) but now that I see that somebody else has it so Im not sure about that.

You may have to zoom in since I took a quick pic but up close it looks like dry liquid and thats why I assumed it was the humidifer.



Cover off


And me wiping it off which in fact comes over very easy and seems powder like. Has no smell also to it lol.


Edit: The white stuff was also not there on the day that I received it from Amazon on launch day. Noticed it about a week ago but as I said above thought it was the Vicks Rub in the humdifier and just moved it to another room. I'v wiped it down now and will see what happens in another month or so.

These PS4s have clearly been having "a good time" behind your back.

STONE THEM! STONE THEM, I SAY! I'm sorry

I doubt this gets the same amount of attention but this should be interesting to figure out what exactly this stuff is?

does either system have liquid cooling?

i have to think it's the humidifier. theres nothing going on inside the system that could produce liquid.

We need to ask these guys where they put their PS4s and Xbox Ones... This shouldn't be happening.

This. If it's a "COOL MIST" humidifer, that shit will leave a white, powdery residue all over the fucking place. I one running in my daughters room for a while. Everything had a chalky white substance all over it.

This is what you get Sony for screwing with Demon's Souls.

That is most likely from hard water in the humidifier. Used to have this happen all the time in my old home - took forever to figure it out. Try adding a small amount of distilled vinegar to the humidified and see if it helps (not responsible if your humidifier explodes :))

Two things that I get out of this story (and the other):

1.) There are liquids in consoles? (Capacitors or whatever else.)

2.) People put Vic's in humidifiers?

Both are brain twisters.

Who puts vicks Vaporub on their air humidifier?

Dafuq.

I used it when my kids were babies and would get a cold or congested or something. It has to be one of those hot humidifiers though, can't be a cool mist one.

Regarding the humidifier, does the OP have hard water?
