Hi all !
I've a question about my salvaged electronics parts.
In the last year I've harvested a lot of pc parts, like wires, molex connectors, front panels with usb and small displays, switches and so on. I put everything in a box and stored it in a relatively dry place.
Yesterday, I took the box out because I was looking for a piezo speaker. Unexpectedly, a lot of the components and wires were covered by a thin layer of transparent liquid, something that remembers me the liquid coming from leaked batteries.
But there are no batteries and no leaked capacitors in the box!
Note that I stored everything after blowing it with compressed air, so the contents of the box were relatively clean.
The weirdest thing is that there is more liquid around heat shrink tubing on wires
Does someone have an idea of what happened?
