spilled water got inside
In short, water got inside my iPad, but is still working normally. Problem is - some area of the screen are showing brighter shades like sun spots.... :(
Has anyone solved this kind of problem?
I plan to open up the screen and blow dry it using a hair dryer. Will this work?
don't use a hair dryer - it could make things worse
dieassemble it like shown in the teardown
the lcd is assembled from different parts, the water is between the actual lcd and the reflector/diffu
it's enough to disassemble it (very) carefully and clean it with a microfibre cloth - but be very careful with the lcd - they can crack pretty fast
but as gabe mantioned - you can let it dry and those spots can go away - if not, the cleaning wortks - but it's not easy at all
Idea: I hear that, for the iPhone and similar devices, putting the unit in dry (uncooked) rice for a few days may help absorb the moisture from the device. For the iPad, try a gallon-size zip-top bag and a generous amount of rice. Also keeping it in a warm place may hasten the moisture absorption.
