Z3 backlight/display issue after submerging in water?
So I have run it under tap water a few times but it would still work after that. But after submerging (in an attempt to show off my phone, quite embarrassing) it in water for a while, the indicating paper turned red. Moments later condensation appeared in both cameras, flash and indicator, screen flickered when I did a hard reset.
Few days in rice, condensation disappeared and the screen is just black. I have tried Sony PC Companion repair tool. The notification LED flashes and I can hear sounds from the phone responding to my touch.
Does it sound like a software or hardware issue? If it is the former, is there a way I can fix the backlight/display myself?
I have found a soldering solution here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FfzJZgYx...
Should I give it a try?
Phone is still recognizable by my PC.
Is this a good question?
