LCD and Power Problem after Water Damage
My Lenovo Thinkpad tablet was water damaged.
I regret that I tried to power on the tablet when I first found there was water inside it. It booted with some strange color strips at the bottom part of the screen. I turned it off immediately.
The next morning when I tried again to turn the power on, I heard a "boo" sound from the inside. I tried again but it failed to boot up.
One hour or so later, I made another try and this time it booted up. I immediately turned it off and left it to dry up itself for one day.
In the evening, I turned the power on and it can boot into the Android system, but I can barely see the very dim image (icons, etc..) in there. I thought it might be the ccfl went wrong.
However, the next day I disassembled the table trying to clean it up from inside if possible. After that, the tablet can only boot into the system at an extremely low speed (it now takes about 5 minutes to finish loading the system; and I can see the "read fail:1" message in the corner of the scrreen when the "Lenovo" logo shows up).
Currently, the backlight of the LCD seems to work properly, however, all black area turns to be "noisy" red.
Another problem is that the battery cannot be charged properly. After the battery used up in two days, I always have to plug the power cable in to use the tablet.
Anyone has any idea what can I do to fix the problems if possible?
Thanks a lot!
Is this a good question?
