Water damaged phone for the second time (white screen of death)?
Okay so for the second time in 2 months I have a water damaged iPhone 3gs. Both times I've dropped it in the toilet. Moral of the day is don't keep your iPhone in your back pocket.
The first time I dropped it I put it in a bowl of rice for 2 days. When I took it out the backlight was not working so after researching the problem on the internet I took the phone apart to clean the corrosion that the rice left behind. After that the phone has been working perfectly. Right until the point where I dropped it in the toilet this morning.
After dropping my phone in the toilet this morning I immediatly took it out and shook all the water out. Not wanting to unbuild and fix the phone again incase of corrosion I did not put the phone in rice. About 10 hours later I checked to see if the phone was working which it was, perfectly. After using it for about 45 minutes i randomly got a white screen. After pressing a few buttons to see what was going on I was able to see that the voice control was working.
What do you think is wrong with my iPhone 3gs and how can I fix it?
- EDIT ***
it worked again for a few minutes but the white screen is back!
it's been working fine all day and night. the downside is the power button doesn't work anymore but i have autolock i guess
Is this a good question?
