iPhone 4s heating at the processor

I had went in a water park and sealed my iPhone in a water proof bag which turned out not to be water proof at all.

As i took out the iPhone from the bag fulled with water i noticed the light was blinking and the iPhone screen went blank. I tried booting up back the iPhone but was of no use.

I opened the iPhone and dried out the inside and as soon as i connected back the battery connector i realized that where the processor is located it started getting hot.

Very hot after about 3 minutes

I don't know what i should do at this moment

Is this a good question?

Surely the water park is to blame here?

if they claim the device is safe in the big then it is clearly not and you can take action against this. Something tells me there will be a smallprint somewhere though defending them in case this happens.

First--I love the title of this question.

I tried booting up back the iphone but was of no use.---this was a mistake. know better next time. mixing water and electricity is a bad idea.

What next? Open it up, take apart all of the components and clean with alcohol and a toothbrush. Dry it, get a new battery and see what you have.

Heat = a short. There is a small chance that the short could be relieved with the cleaning, but probably you have component level damage. This is usually a big easter egg hunt and rarely worth it.

So whats should i do change the logic board?

I looked for he logic board through out the internet and didn't find any. Any help?


I would use 99% iso alcohol and clean the connections and clean it up with a tissue. once dry i would heat the processor up slightly with a heat gun for a few seconds


And will it work after that?


probably not, but there is a chance that it would so it is worth it. The logic board pretty much IS the phone. They have the same value.


But why the heat gun i don't have one. Could i use a hair dryer?
