Weird problem with reassembly after water damage
after I spilled some water on the lower part of my XR. It had a minor water damage issue and some intrusion sadly. I disassembled my phone the next morning (Sunday) and left everything opened to dry out. I found some water drops under the Taptic Engine and the liquid damage sticker next to it is pretty red (others are white).
Weirdly enough it booted up fine today, like nothing happened (without Taptic, speaker and antenna). During reassembly (piece for piece & turning back on again) it stopped working just as I screwed down the little metal-rubber-bracket that pushes/fixes the connector of the Taptic Engine. But without this (just connected) it seems fine. Also all parts are working fine.
Could this be an issue of the charging port flex cable running on the backside? Thanks in advance for any tips and ideas. (Oh and needless to say, there’s nothing left not backed up and I‘ll be getting a new phone in September but this has become something I want to get done.)
Is this a good question?
