Today I mustered up the courage to strip down my wang machine. I did a first pass to get rid of the worst dust piles inside the system (trust me it was a LOT).
Now I removed as many components as possible, all the pcb's except the bottom plate with all the connections that everything plugs on to.
I never cleaned a PCB before besides with a brush to get rid of some dust. I presume these will take a bit more work. I looked online and saw two suggested methods. One was using demineralized water, the other some sort of contact spray. Which should I go for? (or both??). Again, never did something like this before or used any of these methods.
Second question, that power supply doesn't look like a standard ATX power supply to me (understatement). Does this looks "savable" or should I find an alternative way to give it juice?
Thank you for any suggestions on how to proceed, I included some pictures!
