Saltwater in my iPhone 4s - help?
I had my iPhone 4s in a Lifeproof case that leaked. Now the flash is stuck on and the camera won't work. The local repair shop wants $150 to clean it out but I can get an out of warranty replacement from Apple for $199. Can I clean it out myself?
Lose the $199.00. That way you can be sure.
Saltwater is very very corrosive to copper circuit traces.
The way I deal with saltwater is to immediately re-dunk
the phone in fresh water and shake it out. And I do that
a couple of times. Then the usual drying techniques.
Was the lifecase defective? I'm wondering if I should stick
with pelican for a waterproof case. Sorry for your loss.
