The Tek wash & dry makes sense.

A friend suggested to me that if you have electronics
that hasn't been powered up in a long time, and uses
high voltages, it would be wise to place a desicant
pack in that unit for at least a week before it is
used.

He felt that after several years unused, the phenolic
board has probably absorbed considerable moisture
from the air. The transistors and diodes close too
the high voltage supply don't like the leakage.

What do you think? Old wive's tail, or good idea?

Sincerely
