What do I need to do to boot my water damaged iPhone?
hi everyone i dropped my iphone 3gs in water a few days ago and dried it out using rice and after that it booted up once but now it only shows any signs of life when i plug it into my wall charger where it shows an apple logo and it keeps flashing like its trying to boot up and i left it on charge overnight to no avail though the phone was really warm.so i have opened it up and the motherboard looks fine with no corrosion though i havent removed the motherboard yet and was thinking about cleaning it with my RGP contact lens cleaner if this is possible can someone let me know. i think the battery is damaged and i need a new one as it looks like there is not enough power to boot up the phone and also now the phone has no backlight though the motherboard looks brand new so does it need a new lcd or can something else be the problem as i have moved to saudia arabia for work less than a month ago and i dont really know where to go or how to communicate my iphone problems to someone so i really need to fix it soon or find the root of the problem to boot it up and fix the backlight so i can look for the right parts and be able to synch all my data which is really important to me. if someone could please help i would be very grateful.
Is this a good question?
