Water Damage - Back light is out
I have an iPhone 4S that was dropped into a cup of water. It was in for less than 3 seconds, but all of the water indicators are red. The phone was immediately turned off and placed in rice in a sealed ziplock bag for 3 days.
The phone now boots up just fine and I can very faintly see the unlock screen and passcode after swiping (touch is working). But the backlight is completely out.
I have attempted to disassemble and clean all of the connectors, but so far this has not helped.
Any chance at salvaging the phone into something usable or is it just a paper weight at this point ?
Is this a good question?
