Repair power (on/off) switch?
I bought my iPhone 3G second-hand by a friend that had 'dropped it in water' (didn't say how much water).
So now the power switch is 'acting funny' (most of the time not working at all). I've taken the iPhone apart and the switch 'looks ok'.
I don't know what to call/describe the switch, but it's in two (three including the externaly visable part) pieces. The 'main [electrical] body', and a small, oval ('half spherical'?) cup.
It works in the manner that the external button part is pressing against 'the cup' which in turn shorts the electrical part.
I was thinking there was ... 'something' in the water that is stopping the connection/short. But the big question is, is there 'more than meets the eye'?
Is this a good question?
