Water damaged reapir, now connects, but white screen, battery logo too
iPhone 3GS Water damaged repair
I completely dismantled and soaked / cleaned everything with pure alcohol, reassembled and then plugged in, at first you just get a grey screen when you press a button or plug it in, after a few mins, if you unplug, the battery logo comes up (only sometimes, most of the time the LCD switches on and just gives a blank and rather depressing grey. once the phone is charged it turns on and will sync etc etc. but the screen is just bright white, touch screen, speakers and buttons all work fine.
I had a look at connector one, it seems to be in good shape, and no visible corrosion on it, but i'm going to give it another scrub with alcohol in a bit
I think the difference is colour is down to the backlight, as i recall with my iPhone 4, the backlight doesn't switch on when it displays the battery logo.
I've ordered a new LCD, can anyone tell me whats gone wrong or offer some advice please?
Is this a good question?
