Hi Ethan,

You have two options really, the DIY route, you could open the device yourself, and clean the logic board of the phone with 99.9% isopropyl alcohol and a toothbrush, and putting it in a small tub of isopropyl alcohol, this will displace any oil on the logic board, also clean all connectors for the parts etc.

The second option is taking it to a professional that uses ultrasonic cleaning to clean logic boards etc.

Do not just try to dry the device out with a paper towel, this is wasting time, and not effective. :-)

Hey Ethan Huxley,

Turn off your phone.

Open your phone and look if there´s any water, in your case oil in the phone.

Just clean it up and close the phone. Than just turn it on again.
