My grandfather got his Kindle wet. :( Can we save it?
First we left it sitting in rice overnight. Then we took it apart stopping before removing the screen and EMI shields. We left it in this state for a couple of days & put it back together. Everything seems to work correctly except each time you change the screen it keeps a residual image of the last one. This eventually gets so bad the screen becomes unreadably dark.
He paid a site for repair advice & they suggested taking it completely apart again and rinsing everything with deionized water or PCB spray (?). I'm a little concerned about adding more liquid to the mix &/or causing more damage. Any suggestions?
By the way, he's 96 years old and lives on a fairly fixed income, so less expensive options would be better. Thanks! :)
Is this a good question?
