iPhone3Gs Touch works but Display not working. Was Drenched.
I got my iPhone 3Gs drenched in rain slightly. I came home, wiped it off & put under fan. What didnt realize was that there was water drops inside (that I saw in camera glass later). I got a call, the display was very dim, but I could make out the pick call button, so I picked it. So far all good. The call dropped in ~90 secs and display went off. I thought battery went dead and then I did the biggest mistake; I plugged it to charger. shortly there was a tiny red light near earpiece (in sensors area) and the phone went quite.
After 2 days of rice-bagging & dryers, its on again. It responds to touch as before but there is no display. If I rreallllly look hard I can guess the changes in display when touched at right spots. It responds to touch, lock opens, even plays music just fine.
But its all guess work for where to tp/touch. I cant see anything on screen.
Please suggest is it a LCD/motherboard issue? Can I repair it ? Will much appreciate if you could share your thoughts.
Thank you in anticipation.
p.s. the device is out of warranty as it was jailbroken.
Is this a good question?
