Hi , i dropped my iPhone 4 in the toilet , the thing is that it didnt turn off when i removed it from the toilet, so it kept turned on till the second day then it was off, i put it in rice from 3 days ,and then plug it into the mains,the iTunes symbol shows up and if i remove the iPhone from the mains,it immediately turns off ,i tried restoring through iTunes , but i got an error 1611 .. i tried restoring in dfu mode also i got an error .. some guys told me that its a battery problem and i need to change it,any help ?the iPhone is 15 days old ,and i barely used it,i am so upset :( thanks everyone!
How do you remove all the dirt and corrosion?
Get 99% Isopropyl alcohol, take the phone apart and let it sit in it for a day or 2 to clean off any gook and let it dry throughly,
I cannot think of it, but there are 2 types of water(ironic, I know) that will do this, I don't remember what types
NEVER put the battery in no matter what, you may short it and it may work!
In regards to the screwdriver, it will need a Pentelobe screwdriver, I do not think radio shack sells that, but they sell the phillips you need, water sensor wise, there is one in the headphone jack , one in the dock connector, some in the phone
Here is the water damage guide
and the pentelobe screwdriver
Also, IPA stands for isopropyl alcohol
When you asked about accessory and why I am afraid if apple, I thought I would take a few minutes to explain now when I should be in bed, so that version of accessory means I helped you do something illegal and I knew that, so the court can potentally get a warrant and track our IP addresses, come to our houses and take our computers, heck, we might even be in jail
*I do not claim to be a lawyer, I found this out on google so if you want proper legal advice, do not ask me, call a lawyer and ask them, they went through law school and know a lot more about legal stuff then I ever will*
Compatible with the pentalobe fasteners on the iPhone 4 and newer. — 50+ available at 12.95 each.
definitely putting in rice will not solve your problem.
If it is still under warranty take it back for a replacement.
If not send it to a qualified repair tech. This phone will have to be
disassembled cleaned up, restored and some parts will need replacement.
Have a niceday.
