Nail Polish Remover (acetone) spill on screen & phone
An unfortunate accidental spill of this solvent really did a number on the phone and especially the display/touch screen. Acetone seemed to have dissolved the plastic in some areas but not totally fused the phone to render it completely inoperable. I believe the display can be replaced that will correct the main problem. My question is how protected is the LCD? The spill happened very fast and the tissue was applied immediately after the unfortunate event. But the display has definitely been affected.
In your opinion, Are LCD modules durable? Is there a way to inspect their integrity?
I'm about ready to perform a screen replacement that I'm sure will correct the damage and allow me to use the phone again, but I would like others advice, suggestions or recommendations
Wow, really hate to read that post. I would get some 92%+ alcohol, an art brush, and an anti-static cloth to clean off any remaining acetone. Liquid flux used in soldering works nearly the same it's an acid that will eat away plastics ... btw, don't use less than 92% (some pharmacies carry 50% which is too high in water and can cause serious electronic damage). good luck!
