Dropped it in Water once, DISTORTED SOUND NOW

Sorry to be dramatic in the title it just !#^&@! me off. I dropped it in the sink once thinking it was "splashproof" and it cuts out sound or has been muffled when I play music.

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hi @suhnate ,

Here is a link to the ifixit JBL Flip 3 Repair guide.

You need to open the device and check for any damage and corrosion caused by the water.

To clean away any remaining moisture and corrosion to the pcb and the other components use a Q-Tip moistened with IPA 90%+ (Isopropyl Alcohol - available from most pharmacies/drug stores/chemist shops etc). Do not use rubbing alcohol as it is not as effective as most are <70% IPA and can contain scents etc. If you have no choice, then check the label for added ingredients and %.

Here is a link that may be of some help.

Splashproof does not mean waterproof ;-)
