I think one of the ones I gave as a gift is now dead. I found it at the bottom of the washer when I emptied it for them. It’s currently drying out to try powering it, but I’ll be surprised if it comes on since the battery was in it.
I was wondering if anyone could provide some guidance as to possible repairs. Seems to me the most likely scenario short of major damage that still leaves it dead is the battery is now shot. Is that indeed the case? If so, would just plugging it into USB power be sufficient to power it up with a dead battery? Or do I need to disassemble it and provide an alternative power supply?
Failing resuscitation, any chance of salvaging useful parts off of it?
