Abused 3GS, potential water damage, no backlight function
Hello, I have searched the questions & have not come across one to match my scenario.
iPhone has been thrown, (by ex gf) in otter box case but has survived with the digitizer, lcd & backlight working fine. Then one day I dropped it half a foot while trying to plug it in at work & the backlight went out. LCD & digitizer work as I can see the icons they are just annoying to use.
The water damage came from putting it above the shower head for music & it dropped, (while in the otter box). Also my daughter got yogurt on the case and poured water on it to 'clean it up'. But both times it continued to work, (backlight)
Are the backlight bulbs built into the lcd and could they have been knocked loose? Is a new lcd the answer? Thanks!
- No water damage on board, light still comes and goes. Could this be a coil issue?
Is this a good question?
