Water Damage: Wifi, sound and Power button issues?
My girlfriend had her iPhone 3Gs white watered when she took a speed boat...
I dried it and after reading some threads here (thank you ifixit) I opened it and cleaned it with isopropyl alcohol.
The phone works fine except the power button the audio jack and the wifi.
The power button doesn't work at all but when I turn on the phone (by plugging it with a wall charger) the "slide to power off' bar appears so I think it's like if the button was always pushed down...
The audio jack has a similar problem I think it's like if it was always a earphone plugged in it. I have sound on earphone but not with the speaker except when sb calls me.
I think the best way to fix these 2 problems is to buy a new "iPhone 3GS Headphone Audio Jack Ribbon Flex Cable?? And are the 3Gs one and the 3G the same??
The third problem is that the wifi is grayed out (no wifi). I searched on internet and I found that a fix is to reset the network settings, I tried it and it worked once. But the day after I've the wifi grayed again and when I try to reset the phone shut down and I had to plug the charger to turn it on and the wifi is still grayed out.
I read every thread about wifi on ifixit and it seems to be a bad problem... I don't think that changing the wifi antenna (connector number 6) will fix this issue?? You think it's a problem of the mainboard??
Thank you for any advice or suggestion :)
(Sorry for my english)
Is this a good question?
