How to find what is brocken after water damage
About a week ago my wife dropped her Honor 6A on a water bowl.
She removed the phone immediately (according to her it was like a couple of seconds) and, as the phone still worked ok, she just cleaned it off with a cloth and continued using it the whole day.
After a couple of hours the phone started behaving strangely. In the evening when she came home and showed me the phone the touch screen wasn’t really working (just sometimes for a little moment) and i turned the phone off.
We took out the SIM and SD cards and we have put the phone in rice for about 4 days.
Now we can’t turn the phone on.
When we try to charge the phone the front LED blinks red a couple of times, the phone vibrates shortly a couple of times (mostly 2 times with about 10 second interval) and then it just goes black.
A long press of the POWER button makes the phone vibrate twice, with about 3 seconds interval. But it still doesn’t turn on (doing this there are no blinking LEDs)
I have tried connecting it to my laptop via USB using some android recovery apps. At some point it asks me to turn on the USB Debugging (she probably never used it and so it is still off) so it didn’t work.
I have opened the phone and let it dry another couple of days, but still no change.
Is there a way to find out what is brocken? Maybe the battery?
We would love to be able to at least save some photos that she hasn’t backed up.
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
Is this a good question?
