iPhone 4 water damage don't turn on and flash light always on
I have an iPhone from a friend who dropped his iPhone 4 in the pool during the holidays. It does not turn on. By reflex, he put in a bag of rice to try to dry. He left it in for two weeks. But still no sign of life.
Returning from vacation, he gave it to me to see if I could do something. I removed the motherboard and allowed to dry for another two weeks in another bag of rice.
After two weeks I put the motherboard to another iPhone 4. First sign of life possible. The flash from the camera lights continuously.
Do you think there is something to do with this motherboard or she is definitely dead?
Thank you in advance for your answers
Sorry for the response time. But the motherboard started magically after six months immersed in a bag of rice. It works well now. A little hot at times but it does not create problems.
Thank you for your help.
carlitostyle30, the first thing that I recommend is that you start with this guide. Since you already have it apart I do not have to tell you about the step-by-step guides ;-). After you cleaned it according to the guide, my number one suggestion is to get a new battery. Those batteries and water do absolutely not mix and can cause all kinds of "interesting" errors on the iPhones'. Since this phone had its water damage a few weeks ago, be especially on the lookout for corrosion. Once you have a new battery, you will have a point from where you can re-evaluate and do some further trouble shooting if necessary. Good Luck and let us know how it turns out. below
